The Trouble With Witches

The Trouble With Witches

Shadowvale isn’t typical small town America. The sun never shines, the gates decide who enters, magic abounds, and every resident bears some kind of curse. No one knows this as well as raven shifter Deacon Evermore, who, like everyone in his family, has a curse. While his position as Shadowvale’s peacekeeper lets him use that curse for good, he’d rather live anywhere else....

    This is now my favorite series of Kristen Painter’s. Now I want Jayne Frost to visit Shadowvale lol. I loved all the characters. I want to know more about the mysterious tiger, Thoreau. Hope the next book will be coming soon. The MC Em really went through a lot in life. Her past is chasing her everywhere she goes. Will she find peace at her aunt’s, whom she’s never met? Little does she know, this isn’t a normal town. And she has lived her whole life not knowing she is an actual witch. Shadowvale

    This is now my favorite series of Kristen Painter’s. Now I want Jayne Frost to visit Shadowvale lol. I loved all the characters. I want to know more about the mysterious tiger, Thoreau. Hope the next book will be coming soon. The MC Em really went through a lot in life. Her past is chasing her everywhere she goes. Will she find peace at her aunt’s, whom she’s never met? Little does she know, this isn’t a normal town. And she has lived her whole life not knowing she is an actual witch. Shadowvale is hidden from outsiders. But it lets her in. This opens up a whole new world to her. A world with relatives of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Everyone here has a curse. This is a place where the weird fit in making them not so weird. If you are a misfit, you might some day find yourself in this town.

    Shadowvale is a secluded and magically created town that never gets any real sunlight. A town fill with all kinds of paranormal creatures as well as Cursed humans. Emeranth arrives, hoping Aunt Amelia will let her stay while Em gets back on her feet.

    Shadowvale is a secluded and magically created town that never gets any real sunlight. A town fill with all kinds of paranormal creatures as well as Cursed humans. Emeranth arrives, hoping Aunt Amelia will let her stay while Em gets back on her feet.

    I enjoyed reading about this town and it’s inhabitants. Painter has done a paranormal town before but this one is more secluded and while it has a bit of humor in the characters, it has a more serious tone because of the curses that people carry. It would be comforting to know you had a place to hide if necessary. I loved the bakery. Everything is free. Em handled the free part very well, thinking of others before herself.

    I absolutely want to read more about this town and it’s inhabitants.

    Excerpt of getting ready for the surprise party and because it’s a romance:

    “With a look of utter amusement on her face, she tipped her head at the house. “Are you going to let me in?”

    He sighed. She made him so dumb. He was going to have to work on that. “Yes, sorry.” He moved out of the way. “Gracie just left.”

    “I know.” She walked into the foyer. “I got here too early, so I waited down on the next block until I saw her car go by.”

    “Good thinking. I’ll show you the guest room. You can put your bag in there, then you can have that space to get ready in. There’s a bathroom and everything.” He sounded like a rambling idiot. A bathroom and everything. What was that supposed to mean?

    She lightly placed a fingertip on his chest, a touch so soft it should have been barely noticeable.

    It almost knocked him down.”

    As a fan of Kristen Painter's Nocturne Falls series, I’ve been really looking forward to a whole new series from this imaginative world creator. Where Nocturne Falls is a celebratory party 365 days a year, welcoming all who come there, charming even the reluctant, Shadowvale by contrast is literally a town that pushes you away.

    As a fan of Kristen Painter's Nocturne Falls series, I’ve been really looking forward to a whole new series from this imaginative world creator. Where Nocturne Falls is a celebratory party 365 days a year, welcoming all who come there, charming even the reluctant, Shadowvale by contrast is literally a town that pushes you away. Only in Painter’s talented hands could a place that lives under a curse, a town that literally tries to keep you out of it, a heroine with a shady past, a grumpy male love interest, and a grudging supporting character, could be made into something so engaging.

    Painter is not just good at world creation; she’s a solid writer, describing her scenes and characters with detail and deftness befitting of, like her name says, a painter. It is this talent that pulls you in despite yourself. It is a book that is slow to open just as Shadowvale is slow to reveal itself to a new community member like protagonist Em, but it rewards the reader for their curiosity. This book is so full of promises of what’s to come in this series, despite its length, it feels like a delicious amuse bouche. Not surprisingly that it left me with questions that I’m sure she will resolve in further installments.

    If you prefer your books a little bit more challenging and moody, this is a perfect place to start reading Painter. If however you prefer your cosy mystery romances to be more sunshine than overcast ambience, then I suggest Nocturne Falls is a place to start reading talented author Kristin Painter.

    First in a new series - Shadowvale is a magical town full of paranormal characters and permanent gloom. The town can’t be found on any map, and the only people who the town lets in are usually cursed.

    Don’t let that turn you off though - this is one town I’d like to live in - the characters all have curses, and some are downright dangerous - but there is laughter, respect and mateship among the inhabitants.

    Em is a main character with a secret shady past and a desire to escape her current life and start over with her aunt. She is NOT expecting Shadowvale to be - well - magical! She meets the town’s grumpy law enforcer who does his best to convince her to go. He has a secret as well and their secrets are what propelled the wonderful story forward.

    I have preordered book 2 and happy to see that the author is writing book 3 already - yay!

    Followers of my reviews will know that I am a huge Kristen Painter fan, and as such I couldn't wait to get my hands on this new series!

    If you are new to Kristen Painter this is a great place to start. This is the first in a totally new series set in "Shadowvale" - a haven for the cursed, both supernatural and human, that you can only find if the town deems you need to be there. Yes you read that correctly - THE TOWN decides - as in the town is sort of alive, which is fun and different.

    If you are new to Kristen Painter this is a great place to start. This is the first in a totally new series set in "Shadowvale" - a haven for the cursed, both supernatural and human, that you can only find if the town deems you need to be there. Yes you read that correctly - THE TOWN decides - as in the town is sort of alive, which is fun and different.

    It has all the things I have come to expect from a Kristen Painter book, amazing character detail, including the secondary characters, which I personally feel can make or break a book, a quirky new town, and a little mystery that gets wrapped up so NO CLIFFHANGERS!

    As a debut for a series goes this one totally knocked it out the park. Fans of the Nocturne Falls series won't be disappointed, and new fans can jump on for what looks to be a fun ride!

    I can't wait for book 2 to release. I didn't think a town would top Nocturne Falls as a place I'd want to move to but Shadowvale might be it. Wonder if the gates would let ME in!

    An easy 5 stars from me! V""V

    This was a beautiful story about new beginnings and the author proves once again why she is the queen of cosy paranormal romance. She brings an interesting new place for readers to fall in love it and a sweet clean romance suitable for everyone.

    This was a beautiful story about new beginnings and the author proves once again why she is the queen of cosy paranormal romance. She brings an interesting new place for readers to fall in love it and a sweet clean romance suitable for everyone.

    There is so much world building in this book. Shadowvale is simply amazing in its size, peculiar features, and its inhabitants. There is a lot of magic and unusual occurrences. The characters are wonderful, lovable, and so well developed, they feel like good friends. 

    Emeranth, or Em how she prefers, is a young witch, who doesn't know she's a witch. Em is need of a fresh start and family, and coming to Shadowvale in hopes her aunt would help her. She never even dreamed of what she finds there. Then there is Deacon who is desperately trying to leave, and aunt Amelia with her own complicated life and a heartbreaking past. 

    Shadowvale is full of magic and has a mind of its own which makes this story even more interesting. Sun never shines in Shadowvale and the sky is always clear at night. And although the atmosphere seems a bit somber at first, Em makes it cheerful and happy, as the reader observes the world through her eyes. Em's personality is so positive, happy and outgoing, I just got hooked on it. Couldn't stop reading. Fortunately, Em gets exactly what she deserves in the end. I mean it with all my heart.

    I have loved this author and her impeccable writing style for a long time, and she still manages to amaze me with her imagination and creativity. This is a beginning of a beautiful new series and I loved it. I'm so glad the next two books have already been announce, because I can't wait to read them.

    Reading order: The Trouble With Witches (Shadowvale, #1), The Vampire's Cursed Kiss (Shadowvale #2) coming in June 2019, and The Forgettable Miss French (Shadowvale #3) coming in August 2019.

    Awesome series can’t wait for the second book

  • Kristine (A Cozy Booknook)

    This is a great, imaginative, start to a new series. The author quickly drew me in and had me wanting to know what was going to happen next. I was left wanting more and look forward to reading what happens next.

  • Kyle

    Girl has troubles, girl meets boy, relationship problems, boy saves the day. The town has some interest, but everything else is just blah. I like Painter's other books but this is definitely one to pass. Or even return.

    The right title for TBWW should be The Book of Nothing because the only character in it is nothingness. There is nothing happening, the characterization is next to nil, and so is world building. The cherry on top is the stupid with a side of cretin that is supposed to be the heroine.

    At 62%, close to tears, out of pure boredom and to avoid death due to nihilism, I quit.

    I can't decide what this book is because it fails on all count. But it reminds me of the worst NA where the only thought in the

    At 62%, close to tears, out of pure boredom and to avoid death due to nihilism, I quit.

    I can't decide what this book is because it fails on all count. But it reminds me of the worst NA where the only thought in the thoughtless head of the MC is (some part of) the male body.

    200 hundreds pages and nothing happens... I can't believe it
