What Witches Want is an entertaining story that wraps you in the comforting and spell-binding arms of the Wiccan faith”

Savannah Monroe is a thirty-five year old Wiccan Faery Witch who owns a successful business called ‘Savannah’s Magickal Handbags’.
Her now ex-husband Reece is a negative man who had taken the joy out of everyday life for the loving and friendly Savannah. Moving to South Carolina was just what she needed for a new start and inspiration.
One morning Savannah finds a messenger of light; a small kitten that she happily welcomes into her home. Unsure of what the furry little bundle’s appearance may portend, Savannah is pleased that her good friend Ravena drops by for a chat. It seems as though the kitten’s arrival means that good fortune is in the cards for the kind-hearted Savannah.

What Witches Want walks you through the lives and loves of several pagans living in suburban South Carolina. Laura Stamps writes with a loving hand; all the spells, rites, vegetarian recipes, magical charms and invites you into Savannah Monroe’s home and her life as a passive observer to all the elements of her day.
I had a little difficulty getting into the book initially because it is so different from what I am used to reading.  The story was quite slow in the beginning but it was also very refreshing because of its unique content and characters.
Though I have no experience with the Wiccan Faith and I myself am an Atheist, I was impressed with the detail and thoroughness that went into the descriptions of the characters, Savannah’s surroundings, her meals, etc.
I enjoyed the peaceful feeling I had as I was reading What Witches Want and there were a few moments where even I, was wondering what it would be like to be a Wiccan Farey Witch :)
If you are interested in the Wiccan Faith, witches, fairies, spells and chants with a romantic love story, I recommend this book to you!

    Hi, Bobbie!

    I’m so glad you enjoyed the novel! Wynn and Donnie are totally yummy heroes in that one for sure. And the next novel in the trilogy comes out in a week. In “Call of the Witches” you’ll meet another of my yummy guys, Blaine. That one is smoking HOT, so you’ll need a cold drink handy when you read it. *grin*
