Jordyn wasn’t careful with what she wished for.

After making a reckless choice that destroyed her life and the life of her high school sweetheart, Jordyn fled her small town to be a professional mermaid. Being around water suppresses her earth-based magic, something she desperately needs.

Yet Jordyn can't suppress who she really is - a witch.

When she learns that her mother is dying of cancer, she returns home. But it isn’t until people end up dead and everyone points fingers that she realizes her past is coming back to haunt her. Because her ex-boyfriend Zach has been waiting for her. And he hasn’t forgotten how she brought him back to life that night three years ago.

Jordyn will finally have to embrace being a witch to learn the truth. And it will change her life forever.

** I'd Rather be a Witch is a tie-in with How to be a Mermaid. It uses some of the same characters and can be read as a standalone or a complement to it. **



~My Thoughts~

All magic comes with a price....

I was sooo not expecting how dark this book was and I loved every word! Another example why you can't judge a book by it's cover, which is gorgeous by the way! It's what drew me in.

Jordyn brings her boyfriend back to life when she's eighteen and all magic has consequences, it's the reason why she had to leave her home. Three years later, she finds out her mother has cancer and decides to come home. A young couple gets killed and the first person the cops blame is her. When we found out who was truly behind the killings, it just shows how truly dark this novella is! I was NOT expecting who was behind the deaths! My jaw dropped!

I'd Rather Be A Witch was amazing! If I didn't have other stuff to do, I sooo would have read this in one sitting! I just loved the story, the characters, the magic, the DRAMA- I was hooked right away! I am now officially a fan of this author! After all the drama for Jordyn and Luke, I was breathless from happiness that they were able to work things out! My little hopeless romantic heart was on cloud nine after finishing this read! 

This has me wanting to read her story How To Be A Mermaid and excited for her upcoming title, I Do Believe In Faeries
