I liked this book and it was a nice little easy read. However, for those expecting a tale of magical witchcraft you will not find much of that here. There are hints of witchcraft but nothing delving too deep into it.

This book was based around a family in turmoil with nanny Cara playing at a few magical spells now and then to try and help out, all the while fighting the fact she didn't like being a witch and wanting a 'normal' life.
The story for me wasn't as satisfying as some books that I have

It was an ok read but something was missing to make it really enjoyable. Definitely more suitable for young adults.

Not bad. Sort of nice to read a book with a wiccan touch without the evil undertones, wands etc. That being said the storyline seemed lacking without the afore mentioned. Have read it more than once as it is good to read when you don't want to think.

Or maybe 3 and a half. Cute little story, but sometimes the details are left hanging in the air.

But still a nice book to spend a winter evening on the sofa with a cup of tes.
