Review by Booklist Reviews

Can a witch hunter and a witch find true love on a Ducati motorcycle? The second entry in Aguirre's delightful Fix-It Witch series, following Witch Please (2021), focuses on Clementine Waterhouse, who has always tried to make things right. While her cousin, roommate, and fellow witch Danica is finding true love with the new baker in town, Clem sets out to find the newly arrived witch hunter and make sure everyone stays safe. Gavin Rhys does not love the career thrust upon him by his heritage, but he truly believes hunting witches is what he must do, bringing his vintage Ducati along on his mission in America. After engineering a meeting with Gavin, Clem finds herself liking him enough to give him a pet mouse. As she tries to keep the coven hidden and safe, she takes Gavin on fun outings while he makes friends, helps senior citizens, and drinks coffee at the firehouse, all of which have him questioning his calling. Balancing humor with heart, Aguirre's latest feel-good witch romance is a winner. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Library Journal Reviews

Engaging, banter-filled writing and likable primary and secondary characters make this steamy supernatural romance unputdownable. Clem and her cousin Danica run Fix-It Witches, a repair shop in the small town of St. Claire. While all of their clients praise the cousins' ability to fix just about anything, only a few know that their appliances are repaired using magic. Lately, Danica has been distracted and flighty, leaving Clem to shoulder most of their workload. Clem bottles up her frustration and gets on with it, but there are also reports of a witch hunter in town. Gavin hates being a witch hunter, but his father, who leads the hunters, never gave him a choice. Gavin is sent to St. Claire when a spike of witchy energy is detected, but before he can track it down, he meets Clem. Soon Clem and Gavin are falling into bed—and in love—creating a conundrum with a solution that will rock the magical world. With a major festival on the horizon and Danica in danger of being discovered, Clem realizes she'll have to handle this situation alone. Aguirre uses dual points of view to reveal aspects of the characters' personalities. Witch Please, the first "Fix-It Witches" novel, provides much of the backstory and dysfunctional family dynamics that are resolved here. The novels are on the same timeline, so those who've read the first book will enjoy seeing Danica's story from Clem's perspective. VERDICT Recommended for general purchase.—Heather Miller Cover Copyright 2022 Library Journal.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Aguirre's charming second Fix-It Witches romance (after Witch Please) bubbles with spice, sass, and sisterhood. Clementine "Clem" Waterhouse and her cousin, Danica, are both technomancers and proud members of a strong, diverse coven of women in a small Midwestern town. Their lives are going well until a magic spike attracts the attention of Gavin Rhys, a British witch hunter and history professor. But Rhys's troubled familial relationship—combined with his pesky conscience—make him reluctant to actually hunt the witches he's been sent to find. Clem's default mode is to fix everything around her, so she decides to take one for the team and distract the gorgeous hunter until he gets bored and leaves—or until her sister witches find a way to make him leave. But Clem never expected that she'd actually end up sleeping with the enemy. Clem's initial seduction tactics feel heavy-handed and ludicrous, but the book finds its footing once the raunchy early chapters give way to more emotional beats. Some swoonworthy dates make the romance sing, while the supportive coven provides the story's backbone. It's a fun, frothy fantasy romance featuring a cast readers will want to have a cup of tea with. Agent: Lucienne Diver, Knight Agency. (Apr.) Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly.
