If there’s one thing Juniper always does for Halloween, it’s making sure her door is guarded by a Jack-‘o-lantern. But when her pumpkin is removed by building services, she’s left with a few hours to find a new one and carve it.

But finding a pumpkin on Halloween is harder than it sounds, and she’s about to give up when Emmett appears and helps her find an alternative.

Can the two of them get the Jack-o’-lantern carved in time?

Pumpkin Carving For Suspicious Witches is a light-hearted witch academy m/f romance set at Obscure Academy. It is Juniper and Emmett’s complete story.

My Review

I received a free copy from the author through Booksprout and voluntarily reviewed it.

I’ve been really enjoying these stories in the Obscure Academy world and was excited to read this one. This was another fun and light romantic read set during Halloween.

Pumpkin Carving for Superstitious Witches is exactly what the title says it’s about namely a witch who is carving a pumpkin. There’s a lot more to the story as Juniper has a very important reason for carving a pumpkin every Halloween and this year building services removes her pumpkin and she has to find a new one on Halloween.

I liked reading about Juniper, her pumpkin carving was fun to read about and I felt her anxiety when her pumpkin got removed and she couldn’t find a new one. I liked how Emmett, her friend from Marketing to Supernaturals shows up and can help her. And along the way they finally find the courage to admit to these feelings they’ve been having for a while now. The epilogue was sweet and a great way to wrap up their story.

This was a sweet friends to lovers romance and I liked how they worked together to make sure Juniper still had a Jack-o’-lantern for Halloween. I liked the twist that made sure Juniper could still get her Jack-o’-lantern. I liked seeing Emmett and Juniper interact and the way they really heard the other and were there for the other. I really like the way Laura Greenwood writes these romances. I could really feel their connection and romance and enjoyed reading about them.

To summarize: This was a light and fun paranormal romance book set around Halloween. I had fun reading this one and liked reading about Juniper and her pumpkin and her search for a new one when building services removes her pumpkin. I liked the romance between Juniper and Emmett and the way their quest for a Jack-o’-lantern brings them closer and finally haves them admit their feelings for one another. This was another great read in the Obscure Academy world and I look forward to more stories!

    • These are perfect to relax with and just enjoy the story. They are just so fun to read. I like to fit these in between the longer and heavier books indeed.
