For fans of Alice Hoffman, Sarah Addison Allen, and Adriana Trigiani, "The Witches of Cambridge" reveals an astonishing world where the heart s deepest secrets give way to the magic of life-changing love.
"Be careful what you wish for. If you re a witch, you might just get it."
Amandine Bisset has always had the power to feel the emotions of those around her. It s a secret she can share only with her friends all professors, all witches when they gather for the Cambridge University Society of Literature and Witchcraft. Amandine treasures these meetings but lately senses the ties among her colleagues beginning to unravel. If only she had her student Noa s power to hear the innermost thoughts of others, she might know how to patch things up. Unfortunately, Noa regards her gift as a curse. So when a seductive artist claims he can cure her, Noa jumps at the chance, no matter the cost.
Noa s not the only witch who sin over her head. Mathematics professor Kat has a serious case of unrequited love but refuses to cast spells to win anyone s heart. Kat ssister, Cosima, is not above using magic to get what she wants, sprinkling pastries in her bakery with equal parts sugar and enchantment. But when Cosima sets her sights on Kat s crush, she conjures up a dangerous love triangle.
As romance and longing swirl through every picturesque side street, the witches of Cambridge find their lives unexpectedly upended and changed in ways sometimes extraordinary, sometimes heartbreaking, but always enchanting.

sweetness prevails in this "mystery" as the loving witches unite against black magic.
Like Menna Van Praag's other books, this book is very enchanting
