 Blurb/Summary:

The name’s Winterbottom. Crispin Alistair Winterbottom. But you can call me Win, ex-international man of mystery, current resident of Plane Limbo, and ghost attached to Stephania Cartwright. 

For reasons unknown to us, Stevie can hear me, perhaps because she’s also an ex. An ex-witch, in her case, having lost her powers shortly before our first fateful meeting, upon her return to her hometown of Ebenezer Falls, Washington. Now, with my guidance—and help from her familiar, Belfry, and the spectral form of my old Russian adversary, Arkady—Stevie spends her days as the town medium, with a little light mystery-solving on the side. 

The latter of which I’d much prefer she’d avoid, considering the constant danger in which Stevie finds herself. You see, the longer we’re together, the deeper and more complex my feelings become for my mini-spy. And the closer she comes to discovering the few secrets I’m still trying to keep…for both our sakes. But when a precious life is on the line, even I know there’s no stopping my dove from going all in to solve the latest mystery that lands on our doorstep—literally.

Along with Arkady and Bel, I’ll assist her in this latest endeavor. Because there’s more than one precious life on the line…including the one I can’t live without.


Review:

Absolutely loved that this was written in Winterbottom’s perspective.  The same lovable characters are in this story and now we get to see them through super spy guy’s eyes.

This time it is Winterbottom’s past that brings trouble to Stevie’s door.  Nothing that two spectral spies, a bat, a dog, and a turkey can’t handle.  Book six in the series brings out a lot of emotional baggage in our main characters.  We get to see Winterbottom’s protective streak take on a whole new level.  Stevie’s maternal instincts are shoved into high gear.  Arkady is stuck in the middle of the turmoil.   Secrets are spilled and it gets messy.

Ain’t Love a Witch? is a fast paced fun read that will leave you feeling satisfied and hopeful in the end.
