A Wicked and Beautiful Garden (Witches of the Island #1) by Katie McGarry – Twenty-eight year-old Cassie Strega can’t escape fate. All she wants is to live a normal, quiet life delivering the babies in her small town. But when she discovers she comes from a lineage of witches, her life becomes extraordinary—in the gravely dangerous type of way.
Then, she’s reunited with her first love. Orion, the sultry Fae warrior who broke her heart years before, is searching for a baby. Not just any baby, but the queen of the Fae who will one day lead them in their final battle against the demons determined to rule the world. The same baby who has been calling to Cassie for help in her dreams.
Fighting the intense attraction of their former blood bond, Cassie and Orion work together to find the child. But when the heartbreak that nearly destroyed Cassie nine years before looms once more, she’ll have to decide whether getting involved in the supernatural war is worth losing everything, including her life.

Review of A Wicked and Beautiful Garden
A Wicked and Beautiful Garden is the first book in the Witches of the Island series by Katie McGarry. A paranormal fantasy that is sure to take your breath away. McGarry’s writing is superb and gives fans an adventure unlike any other. A story full of whimsy, witchery, and suspense. The characters are well-written and seem to jump off the page with a sexy, chemistry-filled couple that is sure to keep you turning the pages. McGarry has written some of my all-time fave YA books, and when I first read the blurb for this one, I knew I needed it. A Wicked and Beautiful Garden is a fantastic read for any fan of romance–or of Katie McGarry. *I received a complimentary copy in exchange for a review.*
