*Review* Mr. and Mrs. Witch by Gwenda Bond

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Published: March 7, 2023
Pages: 352

In Mr. & Mrs. Witch, the next novel from bestselling author Gwenda Bond, a couple discovers at the altar the surprising secret identities they’ve kept from each other.

Savannah Wilde is a witch, a very powerful one―an identity that only her fellow witches know. Following a whirlwind romance that surprised herself and her family, Savvy is all set to marry the love of her life. But she isn’t the only one with a secret that needs to be kept, even from her soon-to-be husband.

Griffin Carter is a top agent for a clandestine organization that, well, used to primarily hunt witches, but now mainly tries to shut down supernatural threats their own way. He can’t wait to lay his eyes on the woman he’s about to spend the rest of his life with.

As Savvy walks down the aisle to Griffin, the wedding quickly goes from blessed day to shit show when their true identities are revealed. To say there’s bad blood between their factions is putting it mildly. Savvy and Griffin are tasked to take the other out, but when they discover a secret that could take down both of their agencies, they realize the only way to survive is to team up. With assassins hot on their trail, will Savvy and Griffin make it out alive to try again at ‘I do’?

"This is a special day. And she's pretty sure there's no murder on wedding days. (Well, unless it's a TV show and George R.R. Martin is in charge.)"

"Never thought I'd have to say this, but I'm pretty sure it's just a normal penis."

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review. 

Have you ever wished that the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith was a paranormal romance novel? If so, your wish has been granted. And weirdly, I feel like that comment gives away the entire basic plot of this book. But I'm also pretty sure that I'd made that judgement call in the very beginning of the book, which would be accessible as a preview through Amazon anyway, so...

Even with pretty much knowing the basic plot of the story early on, I still wanted to keep reading to see how the characters got there. The story is told jumping back and forth between the start of the relationship and the present, jumping between both main characters heads as well so you get to see the whole story unfold from both angles. The past sections made the present sections a bit frustrating because there was clearly a lot of misunderstanding and assumptions being made. But I also liked the past sections more overall. 

And I really don't want to get into too much more detail because I feel like that would seriously spoil the book for people who don't want real spoilers. Overall I give this book 3.9 out of 5 stars. - Katie

  1. I felt the same way. And also liked the past chapters a little more than the present! It was a cute book, I’d read a sequel.
