The Lighthouse Witches by C.J. Cooke | Goodreads The Lighthouse Witches by C.J. Cooke | Goodreads

Me: Can you be more specific? What kind of witches? Scary/not scary? Who are your typical favorite authors? A light house, missing children, a land cursed by witches and wildlings make for a riveting, gripping and oh so enjoyable book!I just felt like I didn’t trust the narrator this whole book, and it made me disconnected and irritated. This writer just isn’t for me, I had a similar issue with the other one I read. When single mother Liv is commissioned to paint a mural in a 100-year-old lighthouse on a remote Scottish island, it's an opportunity to start over with her three daughters--Luna, Sapphire, and Clover. When two of her daughters go missing, she's frantic. She learns that the cave beneath the lighthouse was once a prison for women accused of witchcraft. The locals warn her about wildlings, supernatural beings who mimic human children, created by witches for revenge. Liv is told wildlings are dangerous and must be killed. Upon the cliffs of a remote Scottish island, Lòn Haven, stands a lighthouse. A lighthouse that has weathered more than storms. Mysterious and terrible events have happened on this island. It started with a witch hunt. Now, centuries later, islanders are vanishing without explanation. The Picture Company co-founders Andrew RonaandAlex Heinemanwill executive produce the series with Studiocanal’s Ron Halpern and Shana Eddy overseeing the production for the studio. Eventually though, I was able to settle into it and really enjoyed my time reading this story. There are some genuinely creepy moments and some quite interesting supernatural twists.

Cooke’s “The Lighthouse Witches” | by A Review of C. J. Cooke’s “The Lighthouse Witches” | by

Liv doesn't believe in fairy tales, but when two of her daughters disappear, she begins to question if the stories that her friend, Isla, told her might be true. C. J. Cooke is an award-winning poet and novelist published in twenty-three languages. She teaches creative writing at the University of Glasgow, where she also researches the impact of motherhood on women’s writing and creative-writing interventions for mental health. Her previous novel is The Nesting. After the death of her loving husband, Liv has it rough trying to care for herself and her three daughters. It's generally difficult being a single parent, but as an artist, Liv is really feeling the strain on her resources. Cooke has creatively interwoven the darkness of reality with a magical realism that will truly have you gripped’ Woman & HomeDarkly atmospheric this reminded me of a Stephen King novel. At no point did I feel like I knew how it all would end, which kept me looking forward to reading on. Warning that this does bounce around a lot between people and years, but I felt invested enough in the story to let it play out. The ending was well done and I thought everything wrapped up satisfyingly. 4 stars. Twenty-two years later, Luna has been searching for her missing sisters and mother. When she receives a call about her youngest sister, Clover, she’s initially ecstatic. Clover is the sister she remembers–except she’s still seven years old, the age she was when she vanished. Luna is worried Clover is a wildling. Luna has few memories of her time on the island, but she’ll have to return to find the truth of what happened to her family. But she doesn’t realize just how much the truth will change her. C. J. Cooke’s The Lighthouse Witches will be published by Berkley Publishing Group on October 5, 2021.

Liv Stay is a struggling mum with three daughters Sapphire, Luna & Clover she is an artist she is commissioned to paint a mural The Lighthouse Witches tells an intense, spooky tale through the eyes of mama Liv in 1998, sister Luna in 2021, and the words of a grimoire from 1620. I thought the different perspectives brought such an exciting pace to the novels, allowing the reader to try to connect the dots as they go. I found it so easy to become attached to Liv and her girls - I still ache to give Saffy a hug. 🥲 A] hypnotic psychological thriller….Readers will keep guessing what’s really going on right up to the surprise ending. Rebecca fans won’t want to miss this one.”— Publishers Weekly (starred review) Thank you so much to the publisher, Berkley Books, for providing me with a copy to read and review. I liked Liv and her daughters' story. It was an emotional journey and I shed some tears towards the end of the book —on the last 3 chapters. You can feel her struggles with her illness, raising 3 kids on her own —one of them being a rebel teenager— and trying to protect her family. I liked Saffy, Luna and Clover as well. I felt bad for Saffy after Brodie played with her. Luna grow up as a broken kid, haunted by the ghost of her past and what happened with her mother and sisters and how she tried so bad to get her family again. I wanted to protect Clover at all cost.I received an eARC of The Lighthouse Witches from Berkley in return for casting one or two minor spells. Thanks to EK, and NetGalley for facilitating.

The Lighthouse Witches by C.J. Cooke | Goodreads

A couple of reader friends found the plot dragging in the middle but I couldn’t detect any major dip in pace. Probably because I was listening to it than reading it. The grimoire’s story was my favourite, though it was the most horrifying at times. The idiotic thinking behind the witch hunts were written very well.Nordic folklore, snowy landscapes, and an ever-turning screw of tension–a fun, Gothic treat.”—Kirsty Logan, author of The Gracekeepers
