Summary

Welcome to Keating Hollow, the village full of love, magic, and cupcakes, where nothing is more important than family.  

At age 18, after a spell tragically backfired, Abby Townsend left Keating Hollow and her magic behind to find redemption. Twelve years later, after being summoned by her family, she’s back. 

As soon as she drives into town, she’s already plotting her inevitable exit, but she can’t quite escape the pull of the tightly knit magical community or the soulful gaze of the one man she’s never forgotten. And when a nine-year old witch not only leads her back to her magic, but also steals her heart, Abby’s about to learn what it means to embrace the soul of a witch.

Great story!

Loved this book! I even cried a few happy tears at the end...which doesn’t often happen! Well written modern day paranormal romance story with relatable troubles from modern life. The characters are likable and believable. The narrator did a fantastic job! I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Highly recommended

Follow this story as Abbie has to face the ghosts of her past. A page turner, with sadness, humour and laughter. Highly recommended

Absolutely loved it

I've read quite a few of Deanna's books and had kind of expected this to be similar to the rest, but I was wrong. The only demons present in this story were the internal ones of the main character - that in itself can be a bit refreshing sometimes! This was a simply nice and very easy to listen to story about a witch and her internal struggle with her perceived guilt and her inability to leave the past where it belongs to the point where it has affected her ability to use her magic effectively.

I loved the story and can't wait to read/listen to more.

Soul of a great listen

Book 1 in a series. First that I listened to from the author . Deanna Chase the author wrote a story that will have you listing till the end . She wrote a strong heroine, that in some instances will make your heart break, you will want to cheer her on and tell the heroine not to give up .
Heroine is Abby. Hero is Clay .
Abby knows she needs to run and start somewhere new other then Keating Hollow. Her powers are playing tricks with her , what I mean by that is they are getting weak and acting up . Her family is at Keating Hollow and so is the love of her life , Clay .
So goes to New Orleans and settles there . But she still wishes she’s back home. Abby has a chance to go back home when she gets an emergency call about her dad . She wonders if Clay is still in the village or did life pull him away also . Will Abbys powers get strong like they are suppose to . Is Clay and Abby get together. Grab it and see .
Gabra Zackman performance was great . Her voice is strong smooth and clear . The tones for the characters were spot on

Fun and fast read!

This story was great, and surprisingly not only about witches, but so much more! I loved the family dynamic in this book, and the bond of sisterhood. This story really had something for everyone. It includes magic, family, friendship, redemption, love, drama, and tragedy! I would absolutely recommend this books to my girlfriends. I could see this series and character developing and continuing for years to come. I received a copy of this book from the author, my review has been voluntarily submitted.

nice little slice of witch life!

The overall story was alittle tame, but the story was endearing and cute. the plot line was very straight forward and the main character achieves some decent personal growth.

Witches of Keating Hollow Series

These are super cute books, albeit short and pretty quick reads. The narrator is pretty good and the stories flow pretty well. I am a litle disappointed that the witch angle is not really integral to the plot... they are more mundane stories that happen to involve witches than stories driven by paranormal drama. And, as someone with some "witch" friends, there are a few inaccuracies (few real wtiches celebrate Christmas... it's Yule they celebrate, and no witch in her right mind calls them VooDoo dolls... they're poppets), but the stories were still cute and I am planning on reading the next one as well as the Christmas ones. If you want an "Awww" book to read and aren't too upset with the lack of paranormal drama, then you will enjoy these books.

Heartwarming

I loved every second of this story! Abby and Clay’s chemistry is off the charts. Deanna Chase has me going through every emotion that the characters are feeling, and the complexity of each character, including the supporting ones, was refreshing. Abby carried the guilt and loss of her friend for 10 long years, and returning to Keating Hollow she begins her rebirth. When she finds her full magic again, my heart was so full love. Olive and Clay’s story is heartbreaking and I loved the end of the story when they both find happiness. Beautifully narrated!

WOW

What a great romance/life story! I was completely immersed in it from the beginning. Gabra Zackman did a wonderful job with the narration, making you feel like you were right there in the town, with the characters. Deanna did such a wonderful job, that I felt Abby and Clay's pain, frustrations, happiness, joy and love. An excellent beginning to the Keating Hollow series and I am looking forward to starting the next book!
