Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Keating Hollow, the magical village full of love, family, and spirit.

After Hanna Pelsh lost her sister over a decade ago, she vowed to live her life to the fullest. And she does just that. When she’s not running the family coffee shop and volunteering her body to research for the mysterious disease that took her sister, Hanna dives head first into every adventure she can find. The only problem? The man she’s loved since she was 15 doesn’t seem able to commit.  

Rhys Silver has his dream job working at the Keating Hollow brewery. The only thing missing is a partner by his side. He’s known who he wants for as long as he can remember. He also knows he’s no good for her. But when the worst happens, he has a choice to make...overcome his fears or lose her forever.

Real Page turner

I'm a huge fan of this series, and I've been waiting forever to read Rhys and Hanna's story. This book is fun, witty, heartwarming with lots of love. I find it easier to read them in order but that not necessary but it does give you bigger view of the series! Hooked from get go!

Courage and love

Gabra has done another fabulous narration with Deanna Chase's Witches of Keating Hollow series. Hanna is a strong woman who tries to live life to fullest knowing all to well how short it can be. Rhys also knows how short it can be and tries to protect Hanna from the future pain of losing a loved one. Your emotions will run high and low as you're immersed in their story of struggle, love and the courage to follow their hearts, no matter how long or short life may be. Definitely a story worth reading!

This book had me cheering for Rhys and Hannah!

I didnt know I was going to fall in love so quickly with this duo of Hannah and Rhys! Their near missed love life was an intriguing story, and it didnt not disappoint! I love the entire series, but this one had my pulse racing with action. **Spoiler alert** there is a helicopter rescue, skydiving, hang-gliding and a sun set flight over the ocean! I could not put this one down! I love a happy ending, but this book had me cheering for Rhys and Hannah the entire time. My interest is peaked with who Luna is and how she is connected to our witching community.

Live Life with Courage of the Witch

Hanna was successful. She ran the family coffee shop. She sought excitement, living the life she promised after the death of her sister from a debilitating disease. Absent is the commitment from the man she loves--has loved for years. He keeps putting her in the friend zone. And yes, they are friends, but they are more and she's tired of waiting for him.

Rys does love her and wants her. But he has something stopping him. It doesn't stop him from wanting her, protecting her. Their on again off again friendship is becoming a problem. When he sees her dating another man he has to reevaluate his hesitancy.

The whole town is like one big family with the fun cousins and grandparents as well as the over-protective parents. Her friends (some have had their own stories in the series) have found their own loves. Oh, yes, and the town is full of magic and witches with the best of abilities. It is a good story with humor, great characters, and impossible problems. But are they or can love, magic, and a little science change things?

Don't worry about not listening to or reading the other stories, although I certainly recommend them, this one stands alone as to all the other books.

Power Couple Overcoming Adversity

Now in the fifth installment of the series we have our first book where the protagonist is not a Townsend sister. In case you were wondering who the Townsend sisters are from oldest to youngest: Yvette, Noel, Abby, and Faith. I say this here because these books actually stand alone well and you could likely drop into any volume and there is enough background given to be fine. This volume quickly refreshes the audience of what has been known since book 1, that Charlotte who was Hanna's sister and a dear friend of the Townsend sister's died when she was in high school of a rare disease. This installment, focusing on Hanna and Rhys, was stellar and we really get to see a couple overcome their interpersonal struggles with each other and their past to then work together to overcome struggles that are out of both of their control but critical in their lives. I really enjoyed the community development in this story as well as the exploration of how magic is utilized in this world and specifically with medicine and healing. This was also the raciest romance in the series so far (volume 1-5) because beyond mentioning steamy kisses and sex happening (not in scene but alluded to) the narration does mention someone's erection. I just mention the detail in case anyone would be offended by this (I am not and listen from straight G rated paranormal cozy to erotica, but different folks have different lines/preferences). Gabra as always does a great job with this paranormal romance melodrama, she strikes the perfect breathy tone so as the audience we can gasp at all the right times. I found the final chapter which shifted POV to the protagonist of our next volume and newest community to Keating Hollow, Hope “Luna” Scott, incredibly intriguing and a great cliff hanger for the next book with her and Chad. As a random aside I do so hope that sweet Brian will get to find his gal in Keating Hollow, a very adorable character I find myself rooting for. For all fans of the series you are sure to be rushing through this addictive volume, and for those new to the series hop in and enjoy and expect to start dumping credits to listen to all the others.

Courage....

Courage of the Witch made me laugh & made me cry. I listen to audiobooks while driving for my job. Courage of the Witch had me rethink this habit today.
Hannah & Rhys have tried for years to “just be friends” but soon find out they are destined for so much more than friendship. With so much thrown their way, can they go beyond being “just friends??”

Wonderfully done

I loved every second of this story! The heartbreaking tragedy of their medical and emotional woes, had me rooting for them the entire time! The only thing I was sad was not in this story was an awesome cart racing scene. Deanna Chase is a fantastic author and I have not read/listened to a book of hers that I didn’t love. A perfect choice with Gabra Zackman as the narrator.

Easy Listening

Good clean easy listening series about a small town whose inhabitants are witches. It evolves around possible real life situations that a family can encounter with an added touch of magic. Character development is enhanced you listen to each book, so it is best to start with book 1. There is plenty of action, twists, mystery, suspense, tears, humor and romance to where it is hard to put this audiobook (as well as the rest of this series) down. Narrator is superb. She does an outstanding job portraying many different characters in this small little witch town. The only negative I have with this book and the series is that it is too short!

Another heart pull

Ms. Chase sure knows how to pull on heart strings with realistic events in her paranormal romance stories. This story had me in tears and laughing the next moment. The characters are likable and believable. The storyline is interesting and entertaining. I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Wow this story will put a spell on you

Book 5 in the series . Love how Deanna decided to do the couple that was skirting around each other 2 steps forward and one step back .
Heroine is Hanna. Hero is Rhy.
Deanna wrote a story full of love , warmth and action Both Hanna and Rhy has had strong feelings for each other for a very long time . They both feel the magic when they are together but Rhy is terrified if he acts out on what his feels are telling him to do. Complete the bond ! But he’s afraid what will happen to a Hannah if his condition gets worse. He doesn’t want her to go through the suffering. Will the daughters step in ? Will both Rhy and Hannah act out on their feelings.

Gabra Zackman Performance is great. Her voice is smoky, smooth and strong not only in this strong but for the series
