#BookReview - "Witches' Cliff" by Peggy Chambers


Penny Winters flees to her birthplace in Vermont to consider the marriage proposal she left behind in Salem. Complicating her already difficult decision, she is smitten when she encounters handyman Liam on the porch of the quaint Deerbourne Inn. 
A modern-day wiccan, Penny intends to contact her distant great-grandmother, who died on the cliffs when Willow Springs held witch trials. Penny needs advice, and the best time to connect to her ancestors is on Halloween. But she is not the only witch in Willow Springs, and they both have their eye on the same man. And who is the old woman who keeps appearing, telling her to go home? 
Penny comes to the cliff to seek Grandma's advice. But Halloween is an important holiday for a witch, and she is not alone on the cliffs that night. Penny will have to battle not only for Liam's attention, but for her life.


In this Deerbourne Inn book, practicing Wiccan Penny Winters goes to Willow Springs in order to conjure the spirit of her tenth-great grandmother, whom died in the 1692 witch trails. It’s Halloween, the perfect time for a witch to perform magic. There she meets Liam, a sexy electrician who always pops up when she least expects it.
This novella is pretty short and a little repetitive, but the writing is clear. Penny and Liam are great characters. The narrative is told from Penny’s POV only, but I would’ve liked some scenes from Liam’s perspective as well. There isn’t a solid HEA, but the possibility of one in the future does exist.
Ms Chambers described a beautiful, mystical setting, especially the cliff and the tunnel of trees. I loved seeing the town in full holiday swing. I’m interested in witch history and folklore, so I found those parts very interesting. Overall, I enjoyed the story.
4 Stars
