#Currentlyreading September 2022

 Hello Fellow Readers!

Just a quick update on what I am Currently Reading, some are requests and others are actual books I've picked out, something I have not done in a long time. Anyway, what are you all currently reading?


The only thing more twisted than a cursed witch is her family tree.

For the past fourteen years, Edgehill’s resident secret witch, Amber Blackwood, has been haunted by her parents’ deaths. The whole town knows about the tragedy, but the details remain a mystery even to Amber. From her tiny studio apartment above her shop, The Quirky Whisker, Amber can see her partially rebuilt old house out on the edge of town. Although she now has a good life—delighting children with her magically infused toys, concocting healing tinctures for Edgehill’s residents, doting on her cats, Tom and Alley, and sitting on the committee for the town’s annual Here and Meow Festival—she feels stuck in the past.

Amber suspects the fire that killed her parents was set deliberately by a witch from the cursed Penhallow clan, from whom no one has heard even a whisper since the night her parents died. The clan’s sudden disappearance is no coincidence to Amber, but her aunt Gretchen refuses to believe there’s a connection and urges Amber to stop looking for someone to blame. So Amber is shocked when Aunt Gretchen shows up unexpectedly, claiming the Penhallows have resurfaced and that one of them is heading for Edgehill with Amber in his sights.

Aunt Gretchen knows more about the fabled clan than she’s letting on. Amber is determined to find out what her aunt is hiding, and what the Penhallow seeks, before the same treacherous force that took Amber’s parents’ lives claims her own.

Based on a true story.

A journey halfway across the world. Two people determined to remain on their chosen paths. But life doesn't always go to plan...

Captain Robert Crawford is proud to have achieved his first command. Despite his taciturn manner, he loves his ship, and those who serve under him are loyal and steadfast. Passengers, however, are another matter—troublesome, unpredictable and the bane of his life. The shipping company’s other edict is no better; he must marry, and the sooner the better. Even his best friend cannot understand why this troubles him so much. How could he when Robert has never confided in anyone about his past?

Miss Agnes Dinwiddie is still grieving one year on from her father's death. Seeing no future for herself in her old home, she accepts her brother’s invitation to be his housekeeper in America. Accepting a position as companion for the duration of the journey, she expects the trip to be the perfect balm to take her away from her heartache and help her to heal. What she wasn’t expecting was to meet an infuriating, complicated captain.

Confined on board with demanding passengers and a young woman who seems to challenge him at every turn, and who he can’t stop thinking about, Captain Crawford wonders what the devil he has done to deserve such a trial. One thing’s for certain, he’s never experienced a journey like it before.
