My Review: 

The initial book in this series was one which had me laughing out loud and thoroughly entertained throughout as Ivie discovered she is a sorceress and started using her innate powers – usually with unexpected and unwanted consequences. In this follow up story there isn’t quite as much humour as Ivie starts to plan to wed her beloved. The main problem this time is her Dad and his new apprentice who seem determined to drive her and Jack apart whilst encouraging her to give Liam her love. With magical mayhem, historic agreements, a powerful scorned love and so much more, this continues the saga of Ivie as she continues to make magical mistakes, bringing mayhem to her life and those around her. However, her father is even more culpable as his magical interference  instigates unexpected and unwanted changes in Ivie’s life. Will she and Jack stand any chance of achieving their HEA together or will she choose Liam, instead? Can she overcome her father’s meddling ways? What about the powerful sorceress who seems to have other plans for Ivie and her future?

This is a great addition to the series, an easy read, amusing, magical misadventure that is great to escape into for anyone looking for a light hearted tale with plenty of twists and turns which don’t guarantee to have everything fully resolved just yet. The ending has everything seemingly coming together, but be ready for even more angst and turmoil! I really want to eat the next book in this series a soon as possible to discover how so many different aspects are eventually resolved.

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.


Something witchy this way comes.

Kindergarten-teacher-slash-sorceress Ivie McKie has officially sworn off magic. With her father back from the dead—just in time for her upcoming wedding to sexy former magician Jackson Blake—Ivie has plotted a course straight to happily-ever-after-ville. And she won’t let anything get in her way this time.

But Daddy Dearest has something sneaky up his sleeve. When “just one more spell” goes horribly wrong and detours her into the path of her father’s dangerously hot new apprentice, Ivie has to scramble to get the magic… and her love life… back on track.

Along the way, she encounters a promise made before she was born, a clan of Scottish sorcerers in kilts, and yet another goat.

Suddenly Spellbound is a new madcap adventure featuring Ivie McKie from Suddenly Sorceress.
