How was it? Oh my god I remember what was so frustrating about this series, the lack of communication. Then I remembered that they’re still getting to known each other despite being married. This series is a weird one for me, I’m not enamored with it but I seem to come back for more. Despite a rocky start for me with Mainly By Moonlight, I Buried a Witch delivered in more ways than the first book.
This time around I couldn’t care less about the mystery that was unfolding here. I didn’t try to unravel it with the character. I’m not sure that I could if I try since I was like a friend listening to the musing of an acquaintance, so not paying much attention.
What kept me somewhat engaged was Cosmo and John’s evolving relationship. There’s a clear progression from book one to book two to now, even if we had to ignore some major red flags along the way. Things are getting better though and their relationship doesn’t seem as toxic as it was. However I still weighed each plot points to the potential damaged it could cause to the relationship.
I found Bell, Book and Scandal easier to enjoy and a tad more engaging. I read it faster than I anticipated to the point that the ending didn’t feel like one since I thought I had more chapters to go through. As turns out there’s a fourth book in the works, it has a title and everything (Hex in the City).
This book was about me finishing the trilogy I started but this entry warrants a look at the next. Bedknobs and Broomsticks seems to be on a slow but steady climb toward becoming a solid book series, entertaining and easier to read as the whole picture is laid out.
