A Blend of Magic is a warm, cosy, insightful and romantic read with surprising hidden depths and dives into elements of other genres. The romantic storyline was brilliant but the mystery and dark emotive chapters really made this book something individual and unique.

Whilst a great seasonal read through Autumn or Winter, it lends itself to being a good all-rounder, perfect for a bit of escapism anytime of the year. It’s an accomplished debut, one that fantasy, romance and mystery lovers alike will enjoy.

The setting was also fantastic – Whitby really came alive in the pages of this book and it’s clear the Authors passion and love for the location.

About the Book

Hiding in the shadows, staunch singleton Willow Anderson is content running her successful business, The Enchanted Emporium. With Christmas days away, she’s eager to exchange selling bespoke tea blends and spells for extended bubble baths and binge-watching festive movies snuggled next to her Maine Coon, Vincent.

Nate never usually runs away from his problems, but drunk and disorientated, he finds himself in a small fisherman’s cottage in the Yorkshire coastal town of Whitby. After discovering his girlfriend’s affair, he is in no rush to return to the City. His wish for time alone in a Christmas-free zone comes true until an uninvited feline guest arrives.

Neither Nate nor Willow want company, especially from each other, but they have little choice when concussion means they must spend at least twenty-four hours together. Sparks fly and not just the romantic kind. When darkness from Willow’s past returns and threatens to destroy all she has worked for, pursuing a love affair is the last thing she needs.

About The Author

Kate Kenzie may not be Yorkshire born and bred, but it’s where her heart is and why her fictional worlds are set in the Moors and her favourite haunt, Whitby. Creator of the Enchanted Emporium and its residents, she blogs book reviews and author interviews at The Enchanted Emporium Bookshelf.

Part-time writer, and full-time dreamer, if she’s not reading from her over flowing TBR pile, she is writing or drinking tea. Like many, she always dreamed of being an author but notebooks of half-finished novels and children’s stories were pushed aside in adulthood until a random Facebook conversation rekindled her passion for world building.

Awarded the Katie Fforde bursary this year, she writes romantic and paranormal fiction, especially witch lit.
