About Melissa Wright

Melissa is the author of more than a dozen YA and fantasy novels including The Frey Saga and Between Ink and Shadows. When not writing she can generally be found talking with an author friend about a book, painting something from a book, or tucked between headphones listening to a book. It’s kind of a theme. She loves reasonable heroines in unreasonable situations, noble--if brooding--heroes, slow burn and sweet kisses, a lot of havoc, and a little magic.

Reviews of Blood & Brute & Ginger Root by Melissa Wright

Tas Abdus-Samad reviewed on Feb. 15, 2022

I absolutely loved this short read.
I love the main characters and the trouble they seem to get into...
There's even a villain - of sorts - who adds just a bit of extra spice to the mix of dramas going on...
A really good read, am looking forward to follow on with this series...

What happens when a very drunk witch casts a love spell to find true love for her sister? In a very well written story, Diana Coulton has to live with the consequences of the spell that brings Fire Marshal Miles Wieland into her life despite the intentions of either of them. Mix in a feud dating back to high school with a town supervisor, and you have a recipe for disaster.

Blood & Brute & Ginger Root is definitely a fine read, worthy of five stars.

I was a little bemused by this book. None of the characters were particularly strong and the plot was a little puzzling. The male lead seemed clueless and the female protagonist was pure caricature. The romance seemed sudden and unlikely.
I read a lot of paranormal/fantasy and this one just didn't measure up.
