Book Review: A Spell of Rowans
By: Byrd Nash
Vic reluctantly returns to her small town to help wrap up her deceased mother’s affairs. Having avoided her mother, sister Phillipa, brother Liam and ex-boyfriend Reed for years, she is forced to confront the terrible traumas of her past. Throw in a possible murder, various suspects, witchcraft and multiple twists and turns and you’ve got an outstanding story in A Spell of Rowans.
The author’s writing style is excellent and pulled me into the story so that I could not put the book down. The way she writes each character’s dialogue and Vic’s inner thoughts serves as a very effective form of character development. Her absence of overly flowery description and use of a clipped writing style makes you feel as though you are in each scene, participating in solving this fast-paced mystery.
I loved this book and would recommend it to all my friends. I can’t believe this is the first book I’ve read by Byrd Nash – She is now on my list of favorite authors.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
