ARC Review of Emma Brewster: Too Hot To Handle by Mary Moriarty


Emma Brewster comes from a long line of Brewster witches and she is not only a witch but a fire-starter witch. She is suppose to be able to control that element but so far she can’t control much of anything when she comes in contact with a handsome man.
Now why is she always bumping into that new, handsome man who just so happens to be a Fire Fighter. She has taken to wearing colored contacts and sunglasses, even on cloudy days so her eyes don’t see him that clearly… but he always seems to be around. Boy is he hot… and oh drats there goes another fire cropping up!
Cas O’Halloran came to this suppose sleepy town to get away from the big city life, except once he bumped into that beautiful redheaded woman on that rainy morning at the bagel shop, his life has been anything but normal or low keyed. His Chief said there have been more unexplained little fires since his arrival than anytime in the history of Cadwell Harbor. ‘This once sleepy, picturesque town is constantly on fire’. So Cas wants to find out why, but he also wants to find out why of all women he is attracted to this red-head who wears sunglasses on rainy, cloudy days and if that’s not bad enough, he feels electrified and alive when he touches her.
Cadwell Harbor will never see a quiet Halloween again if Emma Brewster and Cas O’Halloran have anything to do with it. Nor will it be left standing if those two don’t settle down… one way or another.


One thing I like about Mary Moriarty is the way she writes these books: A mix of history and present day. I love how everything comes alive, from the characters, to situations, to places and events. The writing is easy to follow and well-written. I really liked the witchy feel to the story, especially since the story is about a witch. 

You can definitely tell there is plenty of research done so everything fits the time period in which the character Emma came from at the beginning. I like the feel to the places and how the story grew from chapter to chapter. Emma Brewster Too Hot To Handle was a very good read. It has the perfect paranormal feel to it and the romance is sizzling and strong and the characters interesting and charming. 

FOUR OUT OF FIVE STARS is what I gave to Emma Brewster Too Hot To Handle. Its a captivating romance with a compelling storyline and unique time periods and sexy situations. I liked this story a lot and think its the perfect book for those that love witches.
