Tangled Roots by Denise D. Young

Title: Tangled Roots
Series: Tangled Magic #1
Author: Denise D. Young
Genre: NA / Adult Paranormal Romance
Publication Date: 14th May 2019

A beautiful witch lost in time. A brooding farm boy with magic in his blood and a chip on his shoulder. Dark secrets and shadowy magic. Paranormal romance with a time slip awaits in the first book of this new series.

Cassie Gearhart casts a spell in the forest in the summer of 1974. The next thing she knows, she wakes up to find the world irrevocably changed.

It’s 2019, for one thing. For another, all of her coven members have vanished, leaving behind only one man who holds the key to their secrets.

Nick Felson has sworn off magic, until a confused Cassie knocks on his door in the middle of the night, somehow missing forty-five years’ worth of time. But Nick knows falling for the captivating witch means letting magic back into his life—and that’s one line he swore he’d never cross.

Can Cassie unravel the mystery that transported her decades into the future? And can Nick resist the powerful magic and heart-pounding passion that swirl in the air whenever he and Cassie are together?

The Tangled Magic Series is intended for readers 18-plus who enjoy fast-paced reads, wild and witchy magic, swoon-worthy kisses, and small-town charm. The series is best read in order.


My Review:

I enjoyed this first book of a new paranormal series, and am already looking forward to the next book.

Cassie is a witch who escaped her unsupportive family and found a coven who treated her as one of their own. When she hears her brother is close to finding her she casts a spell and makes a deal, which ends with her sleeping inside a tree for forty-five years.

Nick is also a witch, but as the only survivor of a disaster that wiped out his coven, he's turned his back on magic and is about to leave his family home and start anew. That is until Cassie is released from the spell and comes knocking on his door.

Can Cassie persuade Nick to stay and help her figure out why she's here now, and what really happened to Nicks coven? Read the book to find out!

The relationship between the two main characters seemed a bit rushed, but all in all, this was a quick-paced, easy read with engaging characters and plenty of intrigue.

( I received a complimentary copy of the book for reviewing purposes. All opinions are my own.)

Author Bio:

Equal parts bookworm, flower child, and eclectic witch, Denise D. Young writes fantasy and paranormal romance featuring witches, magic, faeries, and the occasional shifter.

Whatever the flavor of the magic, it’s always served with a brisk cup of tea–and the promise of romance varying from sweet to sensual.

She lives with her husband and their animals in the mountains of Virginia, where small towns and tall trees inspire her stories. She reads tarot cards, collects crystals, gazes at stars, and believes magic is the answer (no matter what the question was).

If you’ve ever hoped to find a book of spells in a dusty attic, if you suspect every misty forest contains a hidden portal to another realm, or if you don’t mind a little darkness before your happily-ever-after, her books might be just the thing you’ve been waiting for.
