The witch who cried wolf (Cry Wolf …. book 1) by Sarah Makela
Back cover ……
Be careful what you wish for….
A potion gone wrong:
Mia Brooks is a reluctant witch, with powers that she tries to hold in check. But when her magic gets mixed up, supernatural forces are unleashed and suddenly she’s being pursued by werewolves—that she didn’t even realize existed…
Ethan Parker, Mia’s brother’s best friend, is home from deployment for the holidays. Mia’s not only hiding from werewolves, she’s trying to keep her feelings for Ethan secret; it would be a disaster if he knew she’s been nursing a long-time crush…
The power of love:
Things take a terrifying turn when Mia and Ethan are attacked by a werewolf. Ethan is amazed when Mia reveals her paranormal prowess as she tries to shield them from danger. But can she really protect them from the darkness that lurks? And how can he tell her that, for ages, he’s been denying what he really wants? Mia…
My review …..
Mia is a witch, but she hides it from almost everyone she knows. She’s also a bit of a pushover (she finds it hard to say no) she makes lotions and potions for her friend to sell in her shop. And she makes a few for herself. She really should be practising more, but Mia would rather potter about with her magic than practise (she keeps being told she’s wasting her potential) to become a great witch.
Ethan is home for the holidays (well not his home, but to the family that treat him like a member of their family) he was expecting his best friend and brother to pick him up, what he got was his worse nightmare, Mia has been like a little sister to him, and watching her grow up, he always thought he would see her that way, but an incident changed the way he saw Mia forever. He shouldn’t be having those thoughts about her, and instead of a great reunion, he’s cross that’s she’s come to collect him.
Leaving the airport Ethan and Mia are attacked by a huge wolf!!! Ethan is bitten, Mia is scared it’s more than just a normal wolf bite!!!
Mia has to tell Ethan that she’s a witch, and there is a whole world that exists within this world…..
Does Ethan turn into a Wolf?
Will he accept Mia’s paranormal side?
And who is trying to kill Mia?
And will Mia finally accept her witchcraft heritage?
I found it a little eyebrow raising that Mia didn’t believe werewolves existed (she’s a witch, so why wouldn’t there be other paranormal creatures out there?)
