***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Jeff and Gail’s relationship has grown to love over the passing months. He finds her witchy practices amazing and sometimes comical. Over time Gail’s witch powers have increased. Life is good for them. Then a High Priestess in New Mexico contacts them and requests Jeff’s help in locating a number of her coven members that have suddenly gone missing. To his dismay, Gail goes with him. Her new powers prove helpful in Jeff’s investigation. He uncovers a sinister and evil plot which he is determined either to thwart or to die trying.
To Know You is to Love You by G.E. Stills is the second book in a series, however, it could easily be read as a stand-alone book. This paranormal-romance-thriller is short and simple, so it is easy entertainment for a plane ride.
To Know You is to Love You continues the story of Gail and Jeff. Gail is a red-headed Wiccan and her beliefs have led to attacks. Jeff, an ex-military sniper turned vigilante P.I., met Gail when she hired him for protection in book one. In this second novella, Gail helps Jeff find the men who are responsible for attacking members of covens in Arizona and New Mexico.
The premise of the story line is creative. The detail of the Wiccan rituals and beliefs is detailed. Although I don’t know much about Wiccan practices and beliefs, the descriptions seemed more believable/realistic than most fictionalized “witch” practices.
I found the start of the book to be slow in pace and the character interactions felt stiff. The pace picks up dramatically in the second half of the book as Jeff is in hot pursuit of the villains. The plot is very simple. The characters are rather one-dimensional. I would have appreciated more dialogue between characters as well as richer descriptions of characters and settings.
