Witches? Non-binary rep? Working against hate? What's not to love? Maeve goes through some great changes, and I love how the magic slowly seeps it's way into the story. It does take a while for things to get moving, but that's in large part because this is the first book in a series. Roe is fantastic, and I hope they become more confident in themself in the next novels. Also, Fiona is a queen. I can't wait to see where the story moves from here!

Very good. Just excellent characters that you wanted to know about. Funny, lovely Irish in an Irish way, sweet, sultry, good craic.

Ngl I grabbed this based on its cover and having tarot in it.
That being said, it was a bit too YA for me - Maeve is quite self centered and kinda a brat.
However the mystery part of it kept me reading. This book features LGBTQ rights quite heavily.
Overall it was entertaining but I won’t be continuing the series.

At first I thought I'd stumbled upon a Mills & Boon for Millennials. Then I thought I might not be all that interested as I'm scarcely the same generation as Rachel and her friends and colleagues, stumbling through messy early adulthood. But almost against my will, I was drawn in to the convoluted affairs and working arrangements of Rachel, and her gay friend and flat mate James. We begin in 209, and there's a recession on, which colours everyone's prospects, including Rachel's middle class dentist parents.

Rachel is at first finishing her English degree while also working in a bookshop. She fancies her professor. But he, it turns out, has begun an affair with James, although he's married to the woman whom Rachel is in due course working for as an intern, and Rachel has fallen for someone who's fallen for her too, but has a habit of disappearing ... It's all intriguingly complicated and believable.

It's gossipy, witty, wry and a real page turner. Recommended.
