This wasn't one of my favorite Annette Blair books but it was still a good read. I have a hard time with the story line that revolves around people denying their abilities - which concidering those abilities are paranormal I guess I should be more sympathetic - but I kind of feel like it's waisting time to blather on and on about - How can this be? when it is - so just suck it up and move on. (run on sentence much?)

Bitching aside I think these books are fun and they have steam heat which is alwa

This did not get put in paranormal although it features a witch and a curse from the past because it really didn't have much of the paranormal in it. It had a bitchy heroine who hated her body and men because she couldn't accept herself. She kept accusing him of not accepting her but the hero was more accepting of her than she was herself. As a child of an anorexic you would think she would have a better balance on a healthy body image instead she whines about how people refuse to love her becau ...more
My biggest problems with this book...
I have never much cared for Vickie. And this time did not disappoint in not liking her. She was very wishy-washy. She kept bitching about not having enough money, but bought a brand new bicycle. She was a horrible dresser, and her little 'problem' didn't endear me to her at all.

I liked Rory, though the beard scratching just made me think he needed a shave. Also, he wouldn't have shown up in full regalia AND a sword. He had no need to, and wouldn't have been a

I didn't quite like this book as much as others by this author, mostly because Vicki was so down on herself and Rory was boring to me. I did like the introduction of Vicki's long lost family as well as the family history. I also loved how Vicki named her toy and challenged Rory to be up to the standard of it.

My experience with this book was weird, because I read it in one sitting but hated every second of it. Truth be told, I think I was trying to get it over with as fast as possible.

The whole book felt poorly planned, like it was slapped together as fast as possible without due thought to character development, transitions, or the god awful excuse for a plot. It felt amateurish and awkward, and the characters read like the fevered imaginings of a 14 year old girl writing her first smutty fanfictio

From the beginning, indeed, from the title, this book promises to be a whimsical little tale at best. That was my thought and then I started reading. My suspicions about how whimsical and downright silly it is are confirmed word by word as I go along. Each character I am introduced to is more over the top than the next, can I go on? Yes, I can, and I do. The chapters are short and easy to get through. Each is more enchanting than the next, like little spells being cast upon me to keep going, to ...more

Victoria Cartwright’s world has just turned upside down. First she loses her beloved grandmother only to find herself drowning in debt and now she’s stuck with the key to a wardrobe, a family heirloom that depending on if she’s the right descendant she may or may not be able to open. If the wardrobe opens then its contents are part of her destiny and she kind of hopes it doesn't open. When Melody and Kira convince her to try, the wardrobe does in fact
My Thoughts:

I love this series! This is the final book in the Accidental Witch Trilogy, the story of Victoria - best friend to Melody (of The Kitchen Witch) and Kira (of My Favorite Witch) and her handsome Scot - Rory.

The interaction between these two characters is hilarious - witty banter, sexual attraction (and frustration).
Both are going through some serious cases of denial! Vickie denies her heritage, magical abilities - even though her rhyming is remarkable! Rory denies his feeling for Vick

Vickie isn't having a good year! She doesn't want to believe she's a witch, although every sign points to it after she turns out to be the first woman in her family who can actually open the antique wardrobe with the key that has been passed down for a century to all the female descendents in her family. Then there's the fact that every time she rhymes, whatever she wishes comes true!

I love this book! With all the recent vampire romances, it was time for a change…so onto witch romances! This is the final book in the Accidental Witch Trilogy…oops…but it really wasn’t a big deal. Each of the books in the series takes place in the same world, but highlights different characters. Although I read the last book first, I am definitely going to have to read the rest.

Victoria Cartwright is a hereditary witch who prefers to deny her heritage rather than embrace it—until the day she opens her grandmother's locked wardrobe and discovers a carousel unicorn inside. From that point on, her carousel dreams, which previously starred her and a sexy Scot in kilt and full Scottish regalia, become even more vivid until Scotsman Rory McKenzie showed up on the doorstep of her little Salem, MA antiques shop a few days later, having traveled all the way from Caperglen, Scot ...more

I really love this series, The Accidental Witch Trilogy.

From Publishers Weekly
Despite her best attempts at denial—"I am so not a witch"—Victoria Cartwright has inherited a legacy of magic, along with the key to a mysterious wardrobe, in Blair's third Witch novel (following the bestseller My Favorite Witch). Upon her beloved grandmother's death, Vickie receives the magic key to grandmother's old wardrobe—never before opened—and a promise that it contains Vickie's destiny. To Vickie's puzzlement,
This has always been my least favorite of the trilogy, and this reading of it is no different. Most of my problems with it lie in the heroine, Vickie.

Though she shares one of my nicknames, she is the worst example of the meaning of the name! She is victorious only when she succeeds in driving away a good man, and I don't think that's anything to be proud of! She constantly denies her witchy powers, can't accept her beauty, and doubts the powers of her sisters and friends. She comes across as ver

A fun comedic light read. I'm not sure if I will read the whole series... maybe ;) I did get a little tired of her being so rude to the Scot ... but they both had ulterior motives and later on there was a development in the main character that made me appreciate the book more.

3rd in the Witch series. Victoria inherits a key that will open a wardrobe if she has inherited her many greats grandmother's powers. It opens, but she still clings to the belief that she isn't a witch even when a perfectly preserved carousel unicorn is found inside.
Rory is ostracized by the village that blames his family for their bad fortune. He will do anything to return the unicorn to the carousel and restore his family's honor.
The meeting of these two is alternately funny and annoying. The

I loved this book. I think a little silly is what I needed, and I love the idea of setting old wrongs to right. I also think there is a much needed message of self acceptance in there that many of today's women, including myself, need to learn. And let's be honest, who doesn't love a good scottish brogue?? I also love that the series felt complete at the end, not like you're left wanting more. Each of the three "witches" ended up with a happy ever after and the closure they needed in their own p ...more
I picked this up because I had bypassed purchasing it once before at a sale and thought not this time. I didn't have any high hopes or actual thoughts of 'loving it'. The title was the catchy bit and so I read it for pure fun. It left much to be desired in terms of character development...too much detail at the begin before they meet and then too quick when they do. Again I didn't have high expectations. There were many times it was apparent this was a book in a series and 'silly me' I didn't kn ...more
Are you looking for a thought-provoking, historically accurate tormented love story? Then this isn't the book for you! If however, you are after a light, fluffy and entertaining (if slightly forgettable) read, then "The Scot, the Witch and the Wardrobe" by Annette Blair is the book for you.

The third in the Accidential Witch Trilogy, it is in the same vein as both "The Kitchen Witch" and "My Favourite Witch". Inplausible yet entertaining. This isn't the book that keeps you up all night wonderin

I really liked The Kitchen Witch and I liked My Favorite Witch. And I honestly did like one but I found this one slower then the others. Vickie had such image issues it bugged me, from the description she was probably not bigger then a size 10 and she kept saying she was big. I like this author and I like the way she writes. But Vickie was a bit sad. She was unsure of herself, her powers and how people felt about her. I hate when people are like you obviously do not love me because I have issues ...more

Catchy title, awful book. Poorly written and contrived.
My Review: Well it was better than the previous book in the series but it wasn't a great one. It was tolerable but not a book I would pick up again. It is hard to pinpoint exactly what I dislike. I have a feeling it might be the dialogue, at times it feels quick and disjointed, almost like a rough draft instead of a filled out final copy. At times the characters allude to something but you have no idea what it might be, you often feel like you are the new person in a group of friends sharing in ...more

Quirky romance. It's just like me to read the third book in a trilogy first. In my defense, no where on the book cover does it state that it is part of a series. Victoria is the only one in her family in the last 100 years that could open the lock in a wardrobe. Rory's Scottish ancestor lost the bewitching lady he loved. Victoria finds a unicorn in the wardrobe. Rory finds out about the unicorn and thinks it is the one his ancestor sent to the woman he loved. Rory sets out to retrieve the unicor ...more

I read the "Triplets" books before I read this series. Actually, the only reason I even read this book (and the 2 previous) was to read Vickie's story and to see how the triplets stories got started. I absolutely hated "The Kitchen Witch". The 2nd one, I loved. This one was pretty good. It doesn't compare, in my opinion, to Kira and Jason's story, but it was still a nice, quick read. I like how everything came together at the end. Not exactly what I expected, but written well. It ended in a swee ...more

This final book in the Accidental Witch Trilogy is an enchanting, light-hearted and magical read (perfect for the upcoming Halloween season). Vickie and Rory's relationship is laugh out loud funny and the ending all comes together perfectly to create Ms. Blair's Triplet Witch Trilogy.

Even though this book could be read as a stand alone, I highly recommend reading the previous two books in the series with Vickie's sisters, Melody and Kira's stories.
It was really cute and filled with a lot more magic than the first two books but with less funny situations and things.
But I still liked it. I like to see what Victoria is like. I only knew her from the first two books and she had very little appearences there. Her story was sweet and kinda like that story every girl dreams of: finding the knight in shining white armour which comes to rescue the fair maiden. ;)
