Payback’s A Witch by Lana Harper | Book Review

It might not be fall anymore, but I am back on my witchy BS when it comes to books. Payback’s A Witch by Lana Harper kicks off The Witches Of Thistle Grove series. This book keeps my witch book pattern going strong and I LOVE it. Friends, I am so glad I picked this paranormal romance up. It was fun and cute with a little bit of competition. I was all over this book.

Payback’s A Witch follows Emmy Harlow who has returned to her hometown of Thistle Grove. Emmy is a witch who hasn’t really leaned into the whole witch thing. In fact, she curates one of those monthly subscription boxes for a Chicago based company. However, the return to Thistle Grove will have her accessing her witchy roots — particularly as she will be serving as arbiter for the town’s Gauntlet which determines who the next mayor is and gives the winning family a big dose of magic. While back in town, Emmy cozies up with Talia Avramov, one of the witches competing in the Gauntlet. Along with another family — the Thorns — the three team up to get revenge on Gareth, a witch who has been cavalier with Emmy, Talia and Emmy’s best friend Linden. Hijinks ensue.

I had a great time reading Payback’s A Witch. This book has characters who are diverse and interesting. Emmy is bisexual. Linden is Black. Talia has SWAGGER like you would not believe. The setting is perfect. This is the kind of book that deserves a hot beverage, a fluffy blanket and cool weather. That is to say — I loved the overall vibes. I find I am really looking forward to book two — From Bad To Cursed.
