I have to give this adorable, romantic comedy 4.5 ♥'s.

Contessa Von Hellengaard starts as a self-absorbed, high-and-mighty witch with a feisty temper.  While you hope that she gets what she deserves, you can't help but connect with her as she finds herself in a situation ridiculously well suited to her needs.  Along with her familiar, Jinx, Tessa finds her life weighing in the balance and coming up short.  The timely intervention of her coven, led by her Aunt Trudy, starts Tessa through a masterfully designed obstacle course that opens her eyes to her true fate.

The characters are well developed and enjoyable to watch as they grow and change.  While this is a novella, it is the perfect size.  Caroline Mickelson has a great sense of timing, humor, and irony.  This fast paced story takes you where you need to go.  If getting there is half the fun, Witch Weigh delivers a full serving.  It is a delightful story that I would feel comfortable recommending to anyone.  I'm definitely putting Caroline Mickelson on my "to watch" list.


Fifteen sinful minutes late, Tessa swung the Mercedes into a circle drive with only a minimal amount of flying gravel to announce her arrival. She grabbed her black leather satchel and eyed the occupant of the passenger seat.
“No, you may not come. I’m tired of you following me everywhere I go.” She half closed the door and then hesitated before flinging it open. “Oh, come on then. You’d better watch yourself though or you’ll end up as annoying as a dog.”
She slammed the car door as soon as Jinx, her sleek black short hair cat, jumped out and made his all too entitled way to the front door of the Tudor home where the council met. The cat was the least of her problems this morning.
Tessa sailed down the hallway. The interior was dim and over-decorated, paying homage to the Victorian style that her Aunt Trudy so loved. Much of Tessa’s childhood had been spent in this very home and she knew it, and failed to appreciate it, the same way she did her own.
