Kiss the Witch Goodbye: A Nick Gibson NovelKiss the Witch Goodbye: A Nick Gibson Novel by Lisa Olsen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay. First of all I have to say ‘thank you’ to my husband for recommending and loaning me this book. It was fantastic!

Second, the title had me singing the first line of What I Did For Love inserting WITCH for TODAY. Having a title that makes you sing is fun! And the title also, keeps you guessing all the way through. Sorry, I won’t throw in spoilers as much as I want to.

I should have given this book a lower rating for not starring a strong fem. But with Sgt. Nick Gibson as the lead, he is at least empowering, if not protective of the strong women in his life, his daughter, Veronica, and his girlfriend, Annaliese Cross.

As exciting as the story is, I like how the author, Lisa Olsen, takes the time to teach newbies about Wicca and the flow of positive energies. Anna even takes Veronica into a ritual to invoke safety for herself and her father. I felt this was done well, yet not so deep that baby Wiccans can’t see a little about how the spirituality works. Kudos!

Other parts of the book are just plain scary and exciting. I wanted to go to sleep when I was at 80% but had to see it all through. Thereby a 5:30 sleep time. Good thing I had a nap yesterday!

Though this story ended with most threads tied up… I saw a stray which makes me look forward to another Nick Gibson novel! Yay!
