Root Brew Float: One Scoop or Two by Sydney Winward is the story of a witch as she faces the dilemma of a lifetime. Josephine Brevil is not your run of the mill witch. She was there when the Salem Witch Trials happened; she survived it all and lived to tell the tale. Regardless to say, she is very careful about her magic and who she shares her powers with. She doesn’t like to share her private information with anyone and she would like to keep it that way. However, when she is tasked to go to Massachusetts to handle a paranormal activity, she wasn’t expecting this place to change her life. She meets the charming and devilishly handsome Clarence and he makes her question everything. She starts falling in love with a human and she cannot afford to do that. Loving a human comes with a choice: love or her magic. Which will she choose?
Oh boy, was this a fun story to read. Quick, incredibly detailed and well-paced, I loved Josephine’s story and her reactions. She is such a fun character; she is fiery and feisty, she isn’t afraid to speak her mind and that is awesome. I loved her responses, her dialogues were incredibly fun, and the way she interacted with Clarence was so smooth. Sydney Winward set the right pace to keep Root Brew Float moving without rushing anything. She gave Josephine and Clarence enough time to experience their feelings, enjoy their relationship and grow as characters that added to the story instead of taking away from it. I really enjoyed this entertaining and fun story and hope there is more because Josephine has the potential to become a great protagonist for supernatural/mystery stories.
