Practical Mischief Belle Bishop, Queen of Witches, Book 1 by D.D. Scott
First of all I love the cover. The colors grab your attention and then focus in to her.
Practical Mischief is about jealousy, power grab, sisters on opposite sides, light and dark.
It does set up good for a series of books that good be really enjoyable.
I had a hard time though caring for the characters. I never got lost in the story. I needed to care about the characters, see them interacting more out of the plot line.
Belle Bishop is Queen of the Witches. She feels about her sister dying to protect her and that she trusted her other sister Angelica to watch over their niece Gia while she went to town.
Angelica likes to mess with free will. She made her niece forget who she was and the power she had. Then dropped her off somewhere and would not tell her sister where she was.
Now Gia is back but still does not remember her past or how to use her magic. Belle wants to help her and protect her from Angelica.
It is a clean story. I would read another book in the series and see how well I would enjoy it. I think their was a story before this one that we saw Gia fall for her fiancé.
I was given this ebook and asked to give honest review from Netgalley.

Description below taken off of Netgalley.
Amazon and Barnes & Noble Top 100 Bestselling Humor Author, D.D. Scott, is back...this time, with Book One in her brand new and wonderfully witchy series featuring Belle Bishop, Queen of Witches.
Belle Bishop, Queen of Witches, is a good witch.
Her sister Angelica? Not so much.
Belle rules her witchery kingdom using the ancient Wiccan Rede – ‘An’ it harm none, do what thy will,’ while Angelica runs amuck, casting one mischievous spell after another.
But this time, Angelica has gone too far.
It’s up to Belle and her former best friend, Atlas, the greatest wizard the earth has ever known, to save Belle’s niece, Gia, from Angelica’s magical mischief. If they don’t, Gia will end up in The Summerland just like her mother did the last time one of Angelica’s spells went awry.
Luckily, or unluckily, depending on how you look at it, Belle and Atlas have a little help from Atlas’s sons, who are every bit The Three Stooges, as well as an ornery faery named Tinker Hell and a deck of Tarot Cards waiting for someone to deal their destiny.
