Book Review: Boy Meets Witch by G.A Rael

Boy Meets Witch by G.A Rael is the first book in the White Cat Chronicles. On Amazon I have seen the book titled as Bad Witch with a very different cover, although Netgalley and Goodreads still have the title as Boy Meets Witch

Harper Adams is a witch on the run--from her past as a faith healer turned accidental arsonist, and from the power she's kept locked away her whole life. She thinks she's finally found a place she can settle down and call home in the picturesque town of Cold Creek, Vermont, but a mysterious white cat who may or may not be bent on taking the curvaceous witch's soul has other plans. Harper's compassion gets the best of her and earns her an unwanted reputation as the town miracle worker as well as the ire of sexy veterinarian and militant atheist, Darren St. Clair. Cold Creek's residents have a few supernatural secrets of their own, and Harper will have to face the destiny that led her to the last place a witch in hiding needs to be--that is, if Darren doesn't have her chased out of town with a pitchfork-wielding mob before she gets the chance.

Boy Meets Witch has an interesting premise and some good characters. I liked the depth of Harper's character, even thought she sometimes seemed less forward thinking than I would like, but I gave her the benefit of the doubt most of the time. I really liked Darren, and thought that with actual conversation he could have had a larger role in Harper's story and the larger series, but I could be wrong. I thought the building of the town and its unusual inhabitants was hinted at. more than stated, and I liked some of the mystery involved in just who (or what) everyone is and the possibilities that they could be just about anything. The danger and magic were well done, and I enjoyed the feel of the story, but did not get completely enthralled. The story was interesting, and enjoyable, but never crossed the line to amazing. 

Boy Meets Witch is an interesting start to a new series. I am not sure yet if I am going to be picking up Trial by Fire or 'Til Death- the next books in the series. If I do I will be sure to share my thoughts.
