Posted March 8, 2023 by Marsha in NetGalley, Paranormal Romance, St. Martin's Press / 0 Comments

Savannah Wilde is a witch, a very powerful one—an identity that only her fellow witches know. Following a whirlwind romance that surprised herself and her family, Savvy is all set to marry the love of her life. But she isn’t the only one with a secret that needs to be kept, even from her soon-to-be husband.

Griffin Carter is a top agent for a clandestine organization that, well, used to primarily hunt witches but now mainly tries to shut down supernatural threats their own way. He can’t wait to lay his eyes on the woman he’s about to spend the rest of his life with.

As Savvy walks down the aisle to Griffin, the wedding quickly goes from a blessed day to a shit show when their true identities are revealed. To say there’s bad blood between their factions is putting it mildly. Savvy and Griffin are tasked to take the other out, but when they discover a secret that could take down both of their agencies, they realize the only way to survive is to team up. With assassins hot on their trail, will Savvy and Griffin make it out alive to try again at ‘I do’?

Title:  Mr. & Mrs. Witch
Author:  Gwenda Bond
Genre:  Paranormal Romance
Published:  March 7, 2023
Publisher:  St. Martin’s Press
My Rating:  4 stars

Mr. & Mrs. Witch was a fun fantasy or paranormal romance, one that, of course, took me back to the Mr. and Mrs. Smith movie, but with a very definite paranormal feel.

Savvy and Griffin keep meeting around the globe and, along the way, discover that they live in the same hometown.  A planned meeting will bring them together to begin a romance that will ultimately end up at the altar.  That’s where their troubles began when each saw too many familiar faces (and not the good kind of familiar faces) at their wedding.  Imagine the chaos when it’s revealed that Savvy is actually a powerful witch — and Griffin is a hunter… of paranormal creatures just like witches.  This is one wedding surprise that neither can deal with, and the wedding certainly didn’t happen.  This is a couple in love who, in their real roles, would be eliminating each other.  Soon, they’ll have hits out on themselves, and the only way to survive is to work together… with mixed results.

I enjoyed parts of Mr. & Mrs. Witch.  It does have a dual timeline where we’re jumping into the past as we explain why things are happening in the present.  There is a mystery to be solved and a story full of interesting secondary characters.  I liked the parts that I liked… and will leave the other parts up to each reader.  None of us read the same book.  It was a fun (for the most part) few hours of escaping into a zany, chaotic world.  They’ll have to work to find a happy ending… but love wins.

*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
