About the book:
WITCH FOUND DRAINED
Gwen Sparks just wants to live a peaceful life in the supernatural town of Flora, but from the moment she read about the first murdered witch, all hope of peace was abandoned.
Possessing the rare ability to read the memories of dead, she volunteers to help catch the culprit behind the string of drained witches. Gwen has to team up with the one man who broke her heart, deal with a ghost who pulls her into the deathly realm at will, and a fight off the advances of sexy but frustrating vampire who not only craves what runs through her veins—he wants her heart.
I felt drawn to Craved for many reasons, for one, I think the author has a beautiful name (which happens to be my name too)! Second, the synopsis alone caught my attention. I also liked the witch aspect. While I am not a witch, I did enjoy dressing up as a witch for Halloween when I was a kid. I also liked the romance, mystery, and the paranormal mixed within Craved.
Remember the show, Sabrina the Teenage Witch from the 90s? Craved reminded me a lot of that show. Add in a little of Twilight with Sabrina the Teenage Witch and you have Craved. The book is told from Gwen’s point of view, she’s a witch and has a cat named Aura that helps her with her powers. Gwen can see the last images of those who have recently passed. She later learns that she has more powers that makes her a unique and powerful witch.
After a witch is found dead, Gwen is asked to help the Flora Police Department (FPD) solved the murder. Unfortunately, her ex-boyfriend Micah is a police officer. He happens to be the boyfriend that broke her heart. They work together to solve the murders.
Gwen also discovers she has feelings for a vampire named Aiden. Aiden has been drawn to Gwen for so long tried to get close to her but she always told him no. After spending more time with him, she realizes how she truly feels for Aiden. Aiden is loyal, sweet, and loving towards Gwen and she knows it. He is everything she wanted, and realizes she never loved her ex-boyfriend, Micah.
I loved reading Gwen and Aiden’s love blossom. They are of two different species, but they found a way to make it work. This book is also the perfect read for Halloween. If you have an open imagination, you will enjoy this book. This is a non-stop, excellent book. I couldn’t put this book down and even stayed up late to get further in the book.
Craved can be purchased on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords.
