Such a fun book! My second seasonal witchy read and this one is by far the more enjoyable. A fun, flirty read with a healthy dose of steam.

Danica and her cousin own Fix-It Witches and use their magical powers to fix all sorts of things. When the town baker's (affectionately nicknamed CinnaMan) oven is on the fritz, Danica springs in to action.

Danica's a witch, CinnaMan (i.e. Titus) is a mundane. Will that be a problem? Can it work? Titus thinks he's cursed in relationships, is that true?

A fun read to squeeze in before Halloween, or to enjoy any time of the year. ( )

I'm going to join the chorus here and say that I should have loved Witch Please and instead I found it to be "fine." The setup is fun! A bisexual baker who's chronically unlucky in love and the fix-it witch next door who's sworn off relationships fall for each other. If this had been a sweet novella, I would have loved it, but apparently there wasn't really enough plot here to keep the story going for a whole novel without Aguirre throwing in an evil grandmother and an inadvertently harmful mother.

There were lots of strong female relationships in the book so it didn't feel like a "women hate women" kind of story, but the external conflict was just clunky. When the entire conflict could be resolved by a single conversation between mother and daughter--who supposedly talk to each other regularly--any time in the last twenty years, the book feels like a bit of a letdown. I was also annoyed at the treatment of Titus, a baker who is as cinnamon-roll-y as the cinnamon rolls he makes each morning. (See the spoiler below.)

In case you're wondering, this book is spicier than I expected. Several sex scenes starting well before the halfway point. Titus is a virgin at the beginning of it all, but he has many firsts by the end.

Witch Please was fine, but the love interests in the next book, Boss Witch, were in this one and I'm looking forward to their story. Aguirre's books are hit or miss for me, so I'm going to keep my hopes up and see what we get.

Audio Notes: The narrator, Ava Lucas, does her best with what she's given, but parts of the story don't translate well to audio. Aguirre's characters do a lot of inner monologuing, with frequent asides that, on audio, sound a lot like their voiced speech. Though Lucas pitches her voice differently when the characters are thinking instead of speaking, it's so frequent that it threw me out of the story several times because I sometimes couldn't tell whether the character was professing their love or confessing their truths out loud or just thinking it.

I received a copy of this audiobook from the publisher for review.


SPOILER: I was pretty unhappy when I realized that Titus' heartbreak, the fact that he was convinced for years that he'd die alone, was because of something that Danica's mother had done when she was little to protect Danica. No one explains this to him or tries to make it up to him, because she's never going to tell him that she's a real witch, just that she's "into New Age stuff."


Content warnings: prejudice, controlling/emotionally abusive grandparent, I'm sure there are other things ( )

If you want something light but fun this fall, you need to pick up Witch Please. Halloween may be over, but anytime is a good time for a little magic. Danica comes from a family of witches. She lives with her cousin and they own a shop fixing electrical appliances. They are the Fix-It Witches. One day a baker walk into the shop for assistance, falls in instalove and decides this is the girl he is going to marry. But Titus believes he is cursed. He is still a virgin, lives with his sister, and has absolutely no luck when it comes to love. This was a fun romp and an easy read. It takes place in small town Illinois, but close enough to the city that going to the airport isn’t all that much of a trial. As someone who lives in Illinois, I have a few issues (like a discussion on seeing Holiday lights in East Peoria and Effingham in the same night (not likely)). Over this was a great way to pass the time. A light love story, with a known trope, but still a fun ride. ( )

I received an advanced copy of the audiobook through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
Witch Please by Ann Aguirre and narrated by Ava Lucas is the first book in the author's new series Fix-It Witches. I asked to listen to this audiobook because several book reviewers whose opinions I generally agree with said it was a delightful lighthearted rom-com with a magical redheaded witch, a cinnamon-roll hero and lots of family hi-jinks. I did not find it lighthearted at all, there were a few moments, but honestly, there were so many dark and uncomfortable moments in this book that it left me cringing. The bi and gay characters in the book seem to be there as a nod to some marketing quota and not an accurate representation. I can’t even begin to explain how horrible the so-called beloved grandmother truly is with her hatred, her lies and refusal to accept her daughter and granddaughters for who they are and to want them to be happy. One of the many things that made this book a failure for me was that there was no resolution with the grandmother. So many other things had me shaking my head while listening to this book. How can someone consent if there is a spell on them? The conflict between witches and mundanes echoes real-world racism and white supremacy making the book feel very dark to me. The hero, baker Titus Winnaker’s interior monologues, came across as creepy, and then when you find out why all his previous relationships have failed … I have no words. The narrator did an excellent job bringing the characters to life, I just wish she had better material to work with. Steam Level: Medium.

The Story:

What a start to a new cute series. I hope there are a lot more of these stories in the wings. Danica and Titus are such a cute couple. I don’t quite jive with the she can never tell him she’s a witch storyline, in fact I thought we were gonna get some sort of work around it but I’m happy with how it all worked out. I really loved Danica’s close relationship with her cousin. I am my mother’s only child and have several cousin/sisters myself. Some of her other familial relationships required some tough love but it was definitely needed.
