Publisher Description

“This is one of my coziest reads of the last year, and I find myself thinking about its enchanted setting all the time.” - Emily Henry, #1 New York Times bestselling author

A warm and uplifting novel about an isolated witch whose opportunity to embrace a quirky new family—and a new love—changes the course of her life.

As one of the few witches in Britain, Mika Moon knows she has to hide her magic, keep her head down, and stay away from other witches so their powers don’t mingle and draw attention. And as an orphan who lost her parents at a young age and was raised by strangers, she’s used to being alone and she follows the rules...with one exception: an online account, where she posts videos "pretending" to be a witch. She thinks no one will take it seriously.
But someone does. An unexpected message arrives, begging her to travel to the remote and mysterious Nowhere House to teach three young witches how to control their magic. It breaks all of the rules, but Mika goes anyway, and is immediately tangled up in the lives and secrets of not only her three charges, but also an absent archaeologist, a retired actor, two long-suffering caretakers, and…Jamie. The handsome and prickly librarian of Nowhere House would do anything to protect the children, and as far as he’s concerned, a stranger like Mika is a threat. An irritatingly appealing threat.
As Mika begins to find her place at Nowhere House, the thought of belonging somewhere begins to feel like a real possibility. But magic isn't the only danger in the world, and when peril comes knocking at their door, Mika will need to decide whether to risk everything to protect a found family she didn’t know she was looking for....

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“A quirky, charming, literally magical story. My only regret is reading this in the 105 Texas heat instead of waiting until the cozy crisp autumn. I fell in love with Mika Moon and her desire to find true family, but even more with prickly but oh so endearing Jamie and his lovely devotion to these girls. Great representation, a bit of romance, and magic spells - the perfect fall read.”

Slightly Smiling Face“Wished I would’ve saved this one as an October read! 🍂☕️ Definitely puts you in a witchy/autumn/cozy mood. Regardless of it being a fictional book, Mika and Jamie’s romantic dynamic was very realistic.”

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“THIS BOOOOOK made my heart feel so happy. It felt silly and goofy, but also emotionally mature and reflective. The characters weren’t toxic and the magical addition created a fun, cozy, and quick read!”

Slightly Smiling Face“I loved this book. It felt like a friend giving me a warm hug filled with magic. I didn't want the book to end. I actually wanted to live in Nowhere House with all the characters and never leave. Now I know why it's called a cozy fantasy read and I'm definitely becoming a fan of those! I highly recommend this to anyone who needs a hug and wants characters who understand loneliness.”
