Accidental Witch by Annette Blair

Set in Old Salem around the Halloween season, this charming romantic comedy features a wacky, if good-hearted, self-proclaimed witch and her upstairs neighbor, a reformed bad boy trying to be a responsible father to his adorable four-year-old son, Shane. Needing a reliable baby sitter, Logan Kilgarven agrees to an exchange: he will find a job for Melody at the local TV station, where he is a producer, and she will be on call to baby sit Shane as needed. Melody, however, spurns his offer of a secretarial position, countering with a bid for a cooking show. The catch? Melody can't cook. At all. But with a combination of sex appeal and well-developed marketing skills, she sells the station owner on the concept, and several spicy encounters in elevators and on counters and desktops are the inevitable result. With both of them fighting their feelings, and several matchmakers as well as one marplot stirring the cauldron, Blair has crafted a fun and sexy romp.

I like what I read on blurb. But I made a mistake of buying it. I mean I like the book. It is hilarious, light read and the tension between Logan and Melody is quite entertaining. The tease and the seduction would leave you wanting more. But I was lead to believe that this novel is about a spell casting, potion making kind of witch, but none of that. And it means it is not qualified for this month's theme, but I already paid and read it so might as well make a review.

When I read the title I was thinking maybe this girl would cast spells and produce an out of this world meal but nope none of that. There is one magical aspect though, Melody's natural charm and charisma and her ability to bewitch men and audience using her "assets and good looks". But other than that the only "wicthly" theme was she lives in Salem, she dresses like a witch, she said her friend is a real witch and that there is a rumor going around that she is a witch. But it ends there. Logan, (the main man) was quite annoying, he keeps on denying that Melody would be a great mother to his son even though all evidence is right in front of him. It was becoming old but then "Shark Bait" or Tiffany, the station owner's daughter, made it all interesting. The ending was not spectacular but it was ok. Over all, I would recommend this book for chick lit lovers and romantic comedy fans.
