I had heard good things about publishers ChocLit, so when the opportunity to review one of their books written by award winner Jane Lovering I leapt at the chance. Hubble Bubble sounded an interesting read, chicklit/romance with a supernatural twist.
Holly Grey is a sensible, no nonsense woman. So no one is more surprised than her when she agrees to go along to a witchcraft meeting to keep her friend company. Despite thinking the whole thing is a load of tosh, Holly joins in. The group all share their wishes and then it is just a case of waiting for them to come true....
Meanwhile, Kai is in Yorkshire determined to find himself. When he ends up embroiled in a group of women meddling in witchery he finds his life changes rapidly. Brooding and strong, he is an attractive leading male with a vulnerable side. I wanted to simultaneously mother him and inhale the scent of his battered leather jacket.
I enjoyed Hubble Bubble, particularly the dry humour throughout. I thought the characters were likeable and diverse, and was interested to find out more about them. There were times where the story seemed to slow down and I was willing the pace to pick up a bit, but overall I thought it was a fun read. I loved the sections of romance and how the relationships between characters built up as the novel progressed. I am definitely going to hunt out some of Jane Lovering's other books to read as this was original, quirky and entertaining.
Hubble Bubble is out now, published by ChocLit.
With thanks to ChocLit for providing me with a review copy of this book in return for my honest opinions.
