    3.5 stars!It was a short very emotional read but full of mystery and twists.I must say it was slow at the beginning and the end was rushed I feel like I have been cheated as this book didn't have proper ending for me there was still many unanswered questions.I would love to get more of Thad... of the reasons, of the missing memory... More chemistry between those two... What I did love was how all the memories, all the objects came together in the story...Love what we should learned from it that forgiveness is something we need to give often to others but in many cases we need to forgive ourselves... not only remembering the bad things that happened, the horrible consequences but also or rather mostly the good results that came with it.It could have been a solid 4 stars read -it's definitely above the 3 mark because of the idea for this story even though it was full of sadness it had such a potential for second chance of happiness but it was an unfinished story for me...* ARC provided by Author for an honest review

    I loved this sad Christmas story with great characters, romance and intrigue. She was a witch that could not leave the small town where she had been for many years. Each year on Christmas eve, she would go into the town and select a human man to spend the night with and he would forget her as soon as she left. This year she went into a new store and as she looked around she saw items that brought vivid memories of her in the 1880s with her husband and child. It was so sad. She selected a man in the store, but found out the next day he was also a type of witch and had restored her memories so she could heal. I believe this is the first book I've read from this author, but I plan to check out her others. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy.

    This was a very enjoyable book and made for a sweet Christmas read (though you can of course read it any time!). While some elements of the plots are a little obvious (hence the 4*), much of it is very different to other witch books I've read, and whilst there is some romance, it's not too soppy (which I would hate!). And as a novella, it's a lovely length to read snuggled up on the sofa or in bed over Christmas!I would recommend this book to any witchy story lovers who enjoy a twist of romance.NB I received a complimentary copy of this book, but I always give an HONEST review based wholly on my own opinions

    I really enjoyed this book, even shed a few tears whilst reading it, and I always say if a book can make me smile, laugh or cry it's the sign of a good book. I would have liked an explanation of how she became a witch but hopefully, that will be addressed in book two? and it intrigued me enough to want to read the next book. I have only given four star due to it being quite a short book but it is a full book even though short if that makes sense? Basically, a lot happens in it especially with the chapters that are about her past. definitely, ya good read but have some tissues handy.

    What a great story! The Christmas Spell is a riveting story of love, grief and memories that anyone reading can identify with on some level. Breen’s Mist witch Chloe Ballard is about to take a painful journey that will lead her down memory lane. Will what she finds at the end of the road lead her to a place of forgiveness and peace? Read on and be caught up in the magic. Will definitely follow Ms. Harkwood and continue with this series.

    This was the first book I have read by this author. This story is about a witch who at Christmas seeks out a man to spend a night with. Th next day he will have no memory of her. That is until she enters a new store and her memories start to return. I found it to be a sad story.but well worth the read. I give it 4 stars. "I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced readers copy without pressure to do so".

    I couldn't put this book down. Chloe's story draws you in and you just want to find out what happens lol Chloe is a healer witch who comes to town to make a connection. She meet Thadeous Cole and everything changes in her yearly ritual. This is a story of forgiveness, history, love, loss and acceptance. I hope this story continues.

    Chloe Ballard is a witch that's been around for awhile and she has her own Christmas tradition. She goes into town and finds a man to bring home. When she finds that man, Thaddeus Cole, memories come flooding back. What is their relationship?I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    A can't put down bookI was enthralled by the story of Chloe from the beginning. I would never want to relive the memories she had to. But are we just like her and just run from them? As we read we discover who the people who Thad knows are part of storyline. A great read and look forward to reading more of Aileen Harkwood's work.

    Chloe and Thaddeus's Story has a bit of everything - deceit, forgiveness, danger, mystery, magic, romance, you name it. All wrapped up in a well written tale with a plot that is full of well done twists and turns and which had. Great lead and supporting cast of characters to work with. Thoroughly enjoyable - and thoroughly recommended.

    The story is intriguing a deep down show of how someone can hold on to something for years and then a Christmas gift comes and makes it all clear. Was heart warming and so different a story than you would think being written.

    "That was a good book." First words out of my mouth when I finished it. I got this book as a freebie, and now I must read the whole series. This author has some serious chops. I must admit that the beginning was a bit of a downer, but I suspected it would go somewhere wonderful and it did.

    A very cute Christmas story! I loved the characters and the setting for this fun witchy Christmas. There is a good amount of thrill, cozy, and romance in the story. Also enjoyed reading about the magic system as well.I received an arc of this book and am voluntarily reviewing.

    This series looks like a light paranormal romance cozy mystery, but it's got a decidedly deeper and darker, depressing edge. This one is about an old witch (who still looks young) confronting the sorrow of losing her love and her child ages ago.

    Another great story by Aileen Harkwood!! I read it all in one day I simply couldn't put it down. The story was sad but did have an HEA. I highly recommend this book.
