Witchy, Witchy (Spellbound Trilogy 1) by Penelope King

When Calista McCoy moves from the slums of the Louisiana Bayou to an illustrious beach community in California, she knows her life is going to take a drastic turn. But once she arrives at the beautiful mansion by the sea, dark secrets are revealed...secrets that become even more complicated when she meets the gorgeous neighbor boy, Nicholas, and she feels an unexplainable--and undeniable--attraction. He's everything she's ever dreamed of. Literally.

Her new life seems almost too good to be true. But as everyone knows, when something seems too good to be true, it usually is.

...And in Calista's case, it could be deadly.

Reviewer: Fashionta
I was delighted by this book, because it's something different to the usual paranormals I read. It was more on the edge of a cute teenager love stories then the usual dark and twisted books that is associated with paranormal.

Calista is a powerful witch that doesn’t know she's a witch, but that's all about to change when she and her father move into her grandmother’s house. Now Grandmother is a powerful witch but she's been searching for her granddaughter for a number of years. When she found her she got a number of conditions to protect Calista. The most important one is that her dad doesn’t know who her grandmother is and what Calista is.

This is the first book I've read from the author and it won't be the last. I will be posting my review A Demon Made Me Do It, soon which is darker than this book but Witchy, Witchy is one teenagers can relate to as it focuses on the daily lives of Calista and her new friends. It reminds me of Sabrina, expect the boys in this novel are totally different. One is a warlock and another is a witch hunter and they will both play important parts in this novel.

I have to give this book 4 stars it's an enchanting book and I enjoyed it. It was a perfect introduction to this series, I love the author's build up the characters, so we get a real insight into them before getting to the climax and the interesting twists and turns.
