Kitchen Witchcraft Spells and Charms review

By Cosmic Dancer

This is the 15th book I have got from this wonderful author…and I’m quite established at my practice. This book is just brilliant to just dip in and out of, I read it cover to cover when I got it. It covers an array of spells and charms from prosperity to confidence, banishing and healing. It’s perfect for the beginner as well as the more experienced witch. The fab thing about these spells and charms is, that most of the things needed you may have in your home anyway, so no great expense to pay out, and if you have read some of Rachel’s other books you will know if you don’t have something, you can use other things, such as your finger if you don’t have a wand. A brilliant book and well worth a place on your bookcase.

Kitchen Witchcraft: Spells & Charms is a the first in a series of books which delves into the world of the Kitchen Witch. Each book breaks down the whys and wherefores of the subject and includes practical guides and exercises. Other titles include Garden Magic, Altars & Rituals and The Elements.

The Naked Witch

Reviewed by Cosmic Dancer

Well from opening the first page and  reading the first chapter, I was hooked,.  You are drawn to Lizzie  whether you like it or not,  with her sweet nature and using her witchy ways in a way that I can really relate to.  From the start with the way  Lizzie is described I picked up that she was a witch, despite the title of the book.  It’s wonderfully written and takes you on a journey with Lizzie as a single parent, and her family’s ups and downs , which most people will have in real life… its as though you  can see yourself there watching.  It did jump about a bit in places  but i just couldn’t put it down…  well  worth a read and a  place on any bookshelf.

Here’s the synopsis for The Naked Witch, by Wendy Steele,

Lizzie Martin lives in Romford with her fourteen year old daughter, Rowan. She enjoys her job as a receptionist and typist at an old established, family run company. She clothes herself from charity shops in vibrant, joyful colours with matching headbands she makes herself. Colour is Lizzie’s armour and she uses it to hold at bay the emotional angst of her ex-husband, Josh, whose girlfriend is barely out of her teens, her mother who has the sensitivity of a crocodile, and the big bad world from which she tries to protect her daughter.

But today Edward Brown – her new boss – has asked Lizzie to ‘bare all’, and become more corporate. For Lizzie, swapping paisley for pin stripe is like asking a parrot to wear pea hen.

Meanwhile, as Edward Brown retakes his position as head of the law firm, Lizzie has to choose between her job and her integrity, cope with an unexpected stay in hospital, continue seeking the truth about her father’s death and juggle two new men in her life.

There is hope though.

At the bottom of the garden is a little wooden shed that Lizzie calls Sanctuary. Within its warm and welcoming walls, Lizzie surrounds herself with magic…
