Where I Got It: My shelf (Netgalley)

The festive season isn't Mina Rosso's favourite time of year. It reminds her that as a descendant of La Befana - Italy's Christmas witch - she's cursed to forever be unlucky in love... Her plan this Christmastime is to lie low, keeping her secret identity under wraps as usual, and do what comes naturally: spread goodwill.

Unfortunately, the arrival of her boss's son, Jadon Eder, puts a spanner in the works. Fresh from working in Milan, Jadon's full of big-city arrogance and plans to overhaul the antique shop Mina loves. Pity he's also sinfully attractive. Despite her best intentions - and even though he's human, a no-no in the witchy world - Mina finds herself falling for him.

Then she finds out some bad news. Some of the spells she's sold online have backfired ... horribly. While she's critical of the dark witches in her neighbourhood, is she really the good witch she thinks she is?

I couldn't resist picking this up. The title, the cover, the summary. Sounds perfect. 

The story follows Mina who is a witch and it is Xmas season. She is cursed to be forever unlucky in love. Her plan is to keep low and spread the goodwill. Well...with the arrival of her boss's son, Jadon will toss all plans array. He is a hottie, but he has arrogant plans to overhaul her antique shop. 

This was a fun story. Short, cute, and fun. A little topping of cheesy. A perfect quick read for the season. 

Poor Mina. I rooted for her!

Not 100% a fan of Jadon. 

The ending was good. It made me want more! There were some lulls here and there, but overall I was hooked. I was curious to see how it was all going to end. 

That cover is suppppper pretty. The colors and I feel the lady they got looks like how I envisioned Mina. 

Overall, this was a quick, cute read. I would read more by this author for sure. I'll stamp this with 3 stars.

It does sound like a cute story. Glad the lulling parts didn't go too far.
