"Schickel's debut entertains while delightfully skewering our culture's obsession with domestic perfection. In the spirit of John Updike's Witches of Eastwick and Alice Hoffman's Practical Magic, Schickel casts a spell all her own. Housewitch takes us deep inside the dark arts of 21st century motherhood and sparkles with unexpected magic." --Amber Dermont, New York Times bestselling author of The Starboard Sea"An unforgettable cast of characters and a powerful story about family, secrets, and magic. A magical, beautifully entertaining debut." --Suzanne Palmieri, author of The Witch of Belladonna Bay

In a strange sort of way this book reminded me of the Stepford Wives. I enjoyed the humor in the book and thought that the characters were well defined for the most part. Using Mother Goose rhymes as spells was genius.
I loved the story, the characters and the way that they were far from perfect, and of course I loved the magic. Who doesn't love magic? It is a fun and exciting read, and definitely one of my favorites. I can't wait until someone else I know reads it too, so I can have someone to discuss it with. I will definitely read the sequel, and it is perfectly set up for a sequel, so the only remaining question is...how long will I have to wait?
