One stormy summer night, Olive and her best friend, Rose, begin to lose things. It starts with simple items like hair clips and jewellery, but soon it’s clear that Rose has lost something bigger; something she won’t talk about.
Then Olive meets three wild, mysterious strangers: Ivy, Hazel and Rowan. Like Rose, they’re mourning losses - and holding tight to secrets.
When they discover the ancient spellbook, full of hand-inked charms to conjure back lost things, they realise it might be their chance to set everything right. Unless it’s leading them towards secrets that were never meant to be found . . .

I really enjoyed this book. It had great LGBT+ representation and I loved the magical elements. However, this book did suffer from the same thing Wild Beauty did in my opinion. The story just a got a bit too…convoluted. The writing was brilliant and I loved the characters, but like with Wild Beauty, I felt like the author got a little lost towards the end. Like they couldn’t make up their mind on which direction to take it, so it became muddled in the end. I have not read The Accident Season by Moïra Fowley-Doyle but I plan on picking it up soon.
