The Enchanted Rose by Nadia Nader

"We don't get new people much but even if we did, none of them would be as interesting as you".

Firstly a big thank you to Nadia Nader for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I will also point out off the top that this is not a standalone book like I first thought it was. I've only just started getting back into the paranormal books again and witchy, magic books have never been a favourite of mine but I could not go past this one. The cover is so beautiful and drew me in instantly.

You couldn't help but feel for poor Vivian from the get go. Her mother has just passed away and her father has shipped her off to her aunts place at the mysterious Tremaine Estate in Misty Hills. Two aunts may I add that Vivian didn't even know about until now and when she arrives at Tremaine Estate she is introduced to a further relative who she never knew about. Vivian makes quick enemies and quick friends at Misty Hills and there are mysteries to be solved at every turn plus a curse that needs to be broken.

This book was very short and I think in some ways this worked against it. I loved the Misty Hills and Tremaine Estate settings and the book moved in to the action right away which was really good. I have issues with the ending though. I hate when a book just cuts off and this is the second book in the last month where this has happened, so not impressed. I also felt like because it was so short we didn't get to form any bonds or attachments to the characters especially Vivian. If anything I found myself more drawn to Rose and would have loved some chapters from her perspective. The Enchanted Rose is a pleasant read though and is set up well for the second book in the series.

3 out of 5 Stars!
