synopsis of a witch

‘I’m 30 years old and sat celebrating with a greasy pizza and a bottle of cheap plonk.’

On her 30th birthday, Ellie Darling decides that it’s time to start a diary. Mainly as a reminder for when she’s old and living with cats that she once had a life that wasn’t all bad. Even if it was one where at 30 years of age, she still refused to spend that extra £3 on the good wine instead of chocolate.

But when the only proposal she gets from her boyfriend on Valentine’s Day is that of a threesome, she decides that enough is enough!

With a new, improved job as Personal Assistant to one of the most feared Partners at her law firm – one that she doesn’t seem to be able to stop dreaming about – Ellie decides that this will be her year. And if she has to run errands for her boss’ neurotic Russian girlfriend or drag her best friend to a sponsored cycle with her now gay first love, then so be it.

Review of a witch

What would you think if your boyfriend took you to your favourite restaurant for Valentines night, started telling you how much he loves you, how much you mean to him and that he wants to move the relationship on, and has a proposal for you?

Now, what would you do if that proposal wasn’t one of marriage, but that he would like to have a threesome, and the ‘other woman’ is already on standby, just waiting for the nod and she will be in your bed?

Well, I’d probably do exactly what Ellie did; Knee him in the balls and call time on the relationship!

Dear Darling is a laugh-out-loud, get a tissue as your going to need it to wipe away those laughter tears kind of book.

Ellie is a remarkable woman who is very clever, apart from when she talks first, then puts her brain in gear, resulting in numerous embarrassing scenes. She works for the most obnoxious boss you can have, and is in an office with her colleague Sophie who will stop at nothing to get her job and her boyfriend.

When Sophie makes false accusations about Ellie bullying her, Catherine, her boss, finally has the opportunity to get rid of her, but it all backfires when Ellie is promoted and is offered the position of PA to Mr. Adam Donely, one of the law firms partners.

Adam is a hot, intelligent man who Ellie can’t stop dreaming about, leading her to say stupid things in front of him, especially when Adam seems to be giving her the come-on. However Adam has a girlfriend – Barmy Russian Saskia, who is out to make Ellie’s life a misery with her over the top demands.

Then we have Ellie’s friends, Gina Curry her best friend and partner in crime, and Heather, her work colleague.

Gina’s character is like watching a comedy genius. She is hilarious, and likes a drink at any occasion. Heather is more down to earth, voice of reason.

I thought the book was fantastic, and loved every minute of it. I immersed myself in the plot and felt like I was watching from the sidelines rather than reading about it.

Ellen Faith, has managed to combine romance, hot blokes, hilarity, wonderful characters and beautiful writing. The book is amazing and I enjoyed every moment of it.
