I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the SPELLS FOR LOST THINGS by Jenna Evans Welch Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Set in Salem with a subtle witchy feel, Spells for Lost Things is a thematic romance perfectly timed for the Halloween season. Spells for Lost Things is a deep, emotional read and one that was near and dear to my heart at times.
Willow and Mason are very dynamic characters, both tackling their own pasts and family drama while growing and working to find their own place in the world. As a foster parent, Mason’s story was particularly compelling and I appreciated how the complexity of his trauma and feelings for young readers who may not really have much exposure to the realities of foster care. I’m admittedly never the biggest romance fan but books like this really stick out for me.
Check out my post and make sure to enter the giveaway because you won’t want to miss this one!

From the New York Times bestselling author of Love & Gelato comes a poignant and romantic novel about two teens trying to find their place in the world after being unceremoniously dragged to Salem, Massachusetts, for the summer.
Willow has never felt like she belonged anywhere and is convinced that the only way to find a true home is to travel the world. But her plans to act on her dream are put on hold when her aloof and often absent mother drags Willow to Salem, Massachusetts, to wrap up the affairs of an aunt Willow didn’t even know she had. An aunt who may or may not have been a witch.
There, she meets Mason, a loner who’s always felt out of place and has been in and out of foster homes his entire life. He’s been classified as one of the runaways, constantly searching for ways to make it back to his mom; even if she can’t take care of him, it’s his job to try and take care of her. Isn’t it?
Naturally pulled to one another, Willow and Mason set out across Salem to discover the secret past of Willow’s mother, her aunt, and the ambiguous history of her family. During all of this, the two can’t help but act on their natural connection. But with the amount of baggage between them—and Willow’s growing conviction her family might be cursed—can they manage to hold onto each other?
