Aunt Nora and her niece Meredith Albright argue the merits of using magic.

However, Merry wants what her mother had, the love of a man, even a mortal.

Pediatric Oncologist Dr. Bryan Aldwyn enters Merry's Magic Emporium and Costume Shop to purchase items for a magic show he plans for a Halloween bash with his young patients at the Hopewell Hospital. However, he finds himself a bit clumsy and distracted as he wants to spend time with Merry. She feels the same way. However she fears how he will react if he meets her weird family members like Aunt Nora or Merry's biological father. Merry's sire has been around lately a lot more than he ever appeared in her twenty-six years of life as he has made her his chosen successor as the Grand Wizard.

THE RELUCTANT WITCH is a fun paranormal romance that though the plot never takes itself too seriously, the tale gracefully leads the audience into believing magic is real. Merry is a great protagonist as she deals with no men in her life ever since her stepfather died along side her mother to suddenly being a hunk magnet. Everyone wants to manipulate her to do his or her (mostly his) bidding. Fans of offbeat whimsical tales will want to be magically transported by THE RELUCTANT WITCH into her amusing world of Bell, Book, and Candle.
