Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an advanced review copy of this book

This was a nice witchy read to start the fall spooky reads season! I expected this to be a fluffy, fun story and was quite surprised to find an extra layer of almost-stalkery behavior, which is what dropped my rating down to 3.5 stars. If the male main character was less of a stalker, I'd have rated this much higher. The cast was diverse with various ages, sexualities, and economic statuses. I thought the writer did a really good job portraying the family drama and the female main character's financial difficulties.
