Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Keating Hollow, the enchanted town where love heals, friends are forever, and family means everything.

Yvette Townsend’s life was perfect...right up until her husband fell in love with someone else. Newly divorced and still reeling from her broken dreams, Yvette’s sworn off men. Now she’s determined to lose herself in her magic and her beloved bookstore. There’s only one problem - she has an unexpected new business partner who’s driving her crazy both at work and after hours. 

Jacob Burton has always been an excellent businessman, but his track record with relationships is nothing short of tragic. After finding his fiancée in the arms of his best friend, he moves to Keating Hollow and invests the quaint bookstore to keep it from going under. But as time goes on, it becomes more and more clear that Yvette and the town just might be saving him. And if he’s lucky, he’ll find out what it means to love the spirit of the witch.

Crazy yet Captivating Witchy Soap Opera

Book 2 read perfectly into this one and set the stage for Spirit of the Witch. The concept that her divorce came from the fact that her husband discovered he is gay after 11 years of marriage is a bit ludicrous but also creates a connection with the reader to empathize with her situation. Despite all she’s been through, she has such a strength to her that she’s really inspiring. The matchup between Yvette and Jacob is plutonic and they really do bring out the best in each other. The initial plot is a bit unbelievable, but becomes a bit predictable until the end. The final plot twist was completely unexpected which made up for some of the predictability. And the hilarity of the senior citizen Bingo ladies had me howling in laughter. The Townsend family continues to develop which is what keeps my interest throughout the series. Can’t wait to see what happens next!

My favorite story!!


This book follows Yvette’s POV which I have been dying to listen to since her husband handed her the divorce papers. Gosh, I think Yvette’s story is my favorite so far! Yvette has so much going on but she is always willing to listen to other people’s opinions and weigh them carefully. Jacob sounds very yummy to me and his story gave a interesting twist to the story. I love how the author hints on the romance or sex scenes and leaves the rest to our imagination. Love it!!
The narrator was great and she’s the same one that has narrated the previous books as well. Looking forward to the next book!

Spirit of the Witch by Deanna Chase

Once again absolutley Amazing!!!!

A fantastic love story with bonds healing between best friends. Deanna Chase once again did not dissapoint, adding that little bit of difference that makes the story even more exciting. Gabra Zackman once again is an absolute delight and soothing voice to listen to. In this version Deanna Chase proved that there is always two sides to a story and things are not always what they seem. I would definatley recommend the entire series to people.

ANOTHER KEATING WITCH FINDS HER MAN

Great plot line and story arc. First I should let you know each book can be heard/read as a stand alone. The narrator catches the voices and emotions of all the characters well. I usually love to read but I am impressed with this audio version, This book has all the aspects that I love. Tensions between the romantic characters, a little mystery, interactions between family and friends and great sexual tension. Please listen to this book as you will enjoy and if you haven't already listen to the other 2 in series as well as the fourth one coming out.

Almost My Favorite, Almost Ruined

I dove into this third installment immediately after finishing Heart of the Witch having loved the teaser final chapter for this book. And well into halfway through this volume things were cruising along easily establishing this as my favorite so far in the series. Yvette is a fun confident, take no nonsense woman, having just been left by her husband for another man and now reeling from just having her first one night stand with a new guy in town who just happens to be....her new business partner at her book store, Jacob Burton. There was tons of comedy, flirtation, and drama abounding as always in Keating Hollow along with plenty of family interactions and the ongoing concerns about the Townsend sisters' father, Lincoln, who is still battling cancer. It is nice to see the other sisters and female friends from around Keating Hollow interacting and having fun as well as offering support as each woman navigates their own highs and lows. The story was almost soured for me by some predictable and reality defying conflict that arises around Jacob. I know we are already having suspension of belief because well hey magic but some of the things regarding Jacob's struggles left me shaking my head. Thankfully the way things finally come to light around these issues were actually the least predictable aspect so far in the whole series and saved my opinion of the tale. I really enjoy Keating Hollow, the sisters, and the community. We always get the happily ever after, though at times this can seem to have audiences hand waving over some deeper relationship dynamics--so no matter the behavior it's often the case that once there is a justification all is forgiven and everything is good. But overall I think Yvette and Jacob had the best chemistry so far. The book is entirely G rated no crazy sexy scenes here just the typical discussions of a kiss that leaves one on fire and weak in the knees. One interesting break from pattern however was the last chapter stayed with Yvette and Jacob and did not set up with the POV of the protagonist for the next book which I will acknowledge caught me off guard as I always enjoy this bridging and set up of the next story. Overall Gabra's dramatic narration continues to strike the perfect tone for this witchy melodrama. Those who have followed the series are sure to be pleased.

Strong series

This book has kept the series going strong. I love hearing each new sister's story, while enjoying the small follow up details on the others. There is a lot of fun and quirky characters that I have learned to enjoy and like that details are dropped in about them. This story was just what the I needed.

This maybe the best one yet

So I started listening to this book about mid afternoon, as evening rolled around I told myself 15 more minutes and I will get ready for bed, and then okay just 15 more. Well it’s 2:40am, I just finished the book and I don’t even regret it, even though I will have to be up with my 1 year old in 3 hours.
I can’t even count all the ways that I loved this book. This maybe my favorite of the series so far. Now I not only want to live in this town but need a book store as well and an invite to be part of this family. The love they all have for each other is beautiful. Even though this is set in a world with paranormal people this book has so many real life hardships and situations in it that you can really connect to and empathize with the characters. I can not wait to listen to the next book.

I’m in love!

I love Keating Hollow and the Townsend sisters! Deanna Chase did not disappoint with the third book in the series. Yvette has not had and easy go of life recently, but it makes her so relatable as a character. Her book store sounds amazing and I wish it truly existed because I would be a regular. Every book that I have read by Deanna Chase I have loved, I would recommend her work to everyone.

Great story

Spirit of the Witch is an interesting and entertaining story about modern day divorce and landing back on your feet to only once again find love. The story ended how I had hoped it would but the author had me second guessing myself towards the end. The characters are likable and believable. The narrator did a fantastic job! I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Book 3 in the series. I have all 3 audios . Love all 3. This one has it all mystery , drama , love and learning what family is all about. It also teaches people how to forgive and let go of anything that drags you do .

So at her sisters wedding she hooks up with Jacob , Yvette thinks he’s only a bar man Boy oh boy Yvette finds out later that Jacob is also her business partner . They both try to keep things professional, their attraction for each other crosses the line. Right when Jacob is ready to start something with Yvette he gets a real big shock .... when he’s ready to sacrifice his life with Yvette things fall into place. What is the shock Jacob learns. Grab it and see . This was a fantastic story. I highly recommend it

Gabra Zackman Performance was fantastic. Her tone and voice for each character was great. You were able to tell each character by the way her voice was
