Waiting on Wednesday #66: Housewitch by Katie Schickel

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. 

The book I am waiting on this week is Housewitch: a novel by Katie Schickel. It's due out February 17, 2015 from Forge Books.

Description from Goodreads: 
Allison Darling, former foster child, now a stay-at-home mom of three, desperately wants to fit in with the organic latte drinking, hundred-dollar-yoga-pants-wearing moms who run Monrovia, her charming seaside village. Constantly feeling like an outsider, Allison dreams of more for her children. When the Glamour Girls, a soap-selling company run by the most charismatic and powerful women in town, recruits Allison, she jumps at the invitation. The Glamor Girls have a hand in everything in Monrovia, from bake sales to business deals. This is what Allison’s wanted her whole life—to be liked. To be popular. To belong. After Allison’s estranged mother passes away, she learns her family’s heartbreaking legacy and the secret Allison’s been fighting to suppress all her life emerges: she’s a witch. What’s more, she’s not the only one in town. There’s more to the Glamour Girls then it seems… and once you’re a Glamour Girl, there’s no going back. Allison must use her rediscovered magic to defend Monrovia, protect her marriage and her children, and reclaim her legacy. Fighting tooth and nail for her family is easy, but what about for herself? Is it too late to confront her own demons and become the woman she dreams of being? Housewitch is a fantastic, clever women’s fiction debut with a lot of heart and a touch of magic. 

 I love the way it sounds. It could be a little like Bewitched, a little like Desperate Housewives, and a little bit like the Stepford Wives.It should make for an interesting read.

So, What title are you waiting on this week? Leave us a link to check it out. Happy Reading!

    1. I'm looking forward to it. Your book pick looks interesting too, I Am Her Revenge by Meredith Moore. Willing to sacrifice her daughter for her own revenge, that's some kind of mother.

  2. I love the sound of this book, thanks for bringing it to my attention. I'll be adding it to my TBR!
