    An enjoyable read! A circle of witches, little magic, death, a troubled past, a reconciliation and new life. A sweet story with a fairy tale ending and a great beginning of this series.

    Fiona is a journalist and travels around the world. She has to return to her hometown when her father dies. While taking care of her father's house she reconnects with her best friends and tries to figure out what she wants to do next. Fiona also meets someone which complicates her decisions. This was a good start to the series and a quick read. I'm looking forward to reading more about the Ashland witches. Fiona is a journalist and travels around the world.

    2/2.5 I was a little disappointed in the story because I just expected more. There were a couple places where I rolled my eyes because it was annoying. Like when Fiona went to see her mom after she was abandoned decades before and the first word she says is 'mom' but later she says 'oh I haven't called her mom in 24 years' when she had just called her that a few pages ago. Or when Gabe runs away in sudden fear because Fiona asks her to move in with her and tells her that she can't move in.

Until literally a chapter later she's like 'oh yeah I want to see you wake up in the morning, I do wanna move in'. I do think this story is more magical realism than "lightly" paranormal. Like what does that even mean?

    Good story! This is the story of Fiona coming home because of her father's death. Saying goodbye to her father enabled her to come to terms with her past and meeting the woman who would become her true love Gabrielle. Fiona and Gabe are both are joined by their fellow elemental witches to develop a very sweet and charming story. Good story! This is the story of Fiona coming home because of her father's death.

    Fiona is one of four lesbian witches in a small Nebraska town (I know, but stay with me here). Each of the four has a power related to a specific element: wind, water, earth and fire. Fiona is fire. After the four become close in high school, they part for college, but then all of them return to the town except Fiona, who becomes a freelance writer and travels the world, with a girl in every port, but none of them a serious relationship.

When her father dies, she returns determined to settle his estate and leave. But she's pulled in by the alluring Gabe (Gabrielle), amazingly the 5th lesbian witch in the small town. There's a lot that both Fiona and Gabe must reconcile and deal with about themselves before they can have their HEA. Most of the book is about their inner struggles with past family trauma and the reader has to trudge through this with them endlessly. The other 3 in the circle have their own issues, but apparently those are just introduced and won't be dealt with until future books are released, leaving the reader with a "to be continued" feeling. I usually like books abut witches, both straight and gay, but this one felt a bit flat, both on the witch part and the romance part. I couldn't get invested in Fiona, Gabe or their relationship. I was more drawn to the enigmatic but logical Avery and I hope the next book is about her.

    A terrific new series about magical lesbians. Book 1 of A Charmed Life left me wanting more of the story. The characters are captivating. Fiona is a fire witch whose life is falling apart, but on the horizon a better life is waiting for her. Gabe is an air witch and a fortyish bartender who throws Fiona a life line when she most needs it. Avery an air witch, Waverly a water witch and Emma an earth witch round out the fascinating group.

    This wasn't at all what I expected. To be honest I expected the typical urban fantasy romance, but with lesbians, and while it delivered the lesbians there was very little magic. At first I thought it would be kind of cool to read a book about witches just living their lives like regular people, but it turns out that's really not that interesting. The characters were also pretty flat, and I felt like more time was spent on the main characters' relationships with their families than their romance This wasn't at all what I expected.

The characters were also pretty flat, and I felt like more time was spent on the main characters' relationships with their families than their romance. The book was also very guilty of using descriptors like "the older woman" and "the blonde" and others instead of just "she/her" or the character's name, which used sparingly isn't terrible but there were multiple instances of this per page. I may go on to read the second one just because my curiosity about the future of these characters has been piqued, but maybe not.

    The writing was very good but the romance wasn't as strong as I'd hoped. The story dwelt too much on the main characters childhood issues rather than the growing of the romance. The issues the characters dealt with was handled quite well and it was obvious that falling in love motivated them to move past those issues. The magical aspect was done okay too. There wasn't big flash but a display of how magic can be used in everyday life.

    Enjoyable I didn't expect to like this book. I'm no into anything in the paranormal culture and I thought that I'd find that to be off putting. Well, it wasn't. The characters are well defined and very interesting. I found something in each character that I could relate to. I downloaded this bok because I enjoy Jea Hawkins' stories, and I'm glad I did. I am eager to read the next book in the series. Enjoyable I didn't expect to like this book. I'm no into anything in the paranormal culture and I thought that I'd find that to be off putting.

    Loved it It's so nice to read a book that has characters I can identify with! As a Pagan who loves women it is rare to find this. The characters are well-developed and the story has just the right amount of romance and magick without going over the top into woo-woo territory. The characters are also relatable in that they deal with family conflict. I loved it and can't wait for the next one! Loved it It's so nice to read a book that has characters I can identify with!

    Fiery, feisty, and intriguing This first entry in the Ashland Witches series, focusing on the tempestuous, itinerant journalist and Fire Witch, Fiona, is a wonderful start to the series. The chemistry between Fiona and Gabe is fantastic and the other members of the Ashland coven promise more heartfelt stories to come.

    Excellent book Wonderful story. If I have one complaint, it'd be the book was too short. I can't wait for the sequel. I'm assuming Emma and Crystal are next. I want only happy endings. Real life isn't so kind. Excellent book Wonderful story. If I have one complaint, it'd be the book was too short. I can't wait for the sequel. I'm assuming Emma and Crystal are next.

    Truly Magickal! "A Charmed Life" is the first book in a series by Jea Hawkins, and I can't wait to read the rest of it! The characters are sympathetic and brilliantly written, and the plot lkeeps one turning pages until the end. As a Wiccan, I highly recommend this book! Truly Magickal!

    Very sweet book and a quick read. At times it felt like things worked out too smoothly, too quickly but overall I enjoyed it quite a lot. I will be reading the other books in the series.
