My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cassie is in a desperate situation when she calls upon the Guardian of Willow Creek for help. She discovers that she doesn’t get the answer she is looking for as the Guardian has her own agenda. To her surprise she wakes up 45 years after she casts the spell. When she goes home she finds there is a man there that ends up being her mentor’s grandson. Their chemistry is undeniable.
Love, Magic, time travel! Can’t wait to read the next book.

I normally don’t read alot of romance books but this story did not disappoint. It was the perfect combination of romance and spells that I needed. I have always loved books about witches and this book really brings out the loyalties that lie within a coven. I fell in love with characters, especially Cassie, and I can’t wait to continue reading more books from this author.

Tangled Roots (Witches of Willow Creek: Tangled Magic #1) by Denise D. Young

This is the first book I’ve read by Denise D. Young. She is a very talented author and I will be reading more of her work.

Cassie is originally from 1974. She was running from her family. Asking the Guardian for help didn’t really help her. Being a tree for 45 years isn’t as great as it seems. The quote I chose for Cassie is: “Have a nice night. Thanks for your help.”

Nick is the first person to see Cassie and learn the truth. Now that he knows his family is still alive just stuck somewhere. He finds that he is falling for Cassie. The quote I chose Nick is: “Now, I have a shot at a future. With the ones I love. With magic. With you.”

Highly recommended for Paranormal Romance lovers.

If you like Paranormal/Romance this book is for you. This was a very good, easy read. The story starts in 1974 when Cassie is trying to get away from her brother. She summons help to get away and is missing 45 years. When she reappears, she comes across a house where she meets Nick Felson. Even though at first he was tough, unsure and wants nothing to do with is magic, he falls for Cassie. I love how they were meant to be together. There were a few twists, turns, secrets along the way that unfolds and brought together a very good book. Looking forward to continuing the series!

Tangled Roots by Denise D. Young is a great first installment to what I believe is going to be a magical roller coaster witchy series. Personally this is my first read by Ms. Young but boy oh boy was I not disappointed. Ms. young not only provides us with a fantastic story, but she also gives us very detailed character descriptions, and a wonderful budding relationship between the main characters. This book was so wonderfully written that it kept me flipping the pages faster then I could blink to see what happens next. So if your looking for a great new paranormal series I highly recommend Tangled Roots.

4 Stars!!!!

I just love paranormal romances and this book hit the spot. I like how the author spins the story. The supernatural element to this book really adds to drama. The characters really come to life and entice the reader in.

Cassie and Nick have such a powerful chemistry in this book. Their journey of discovery and getting together is just empowering. Along the way they have an evil to overcome and a past as well. I really was hooked on this book and couldn’t put it down. I look forward to reading more from the author in future.

Y’all, I found my new favorite author.

Tangled Roots (Witches of Willow Creek: Tangled Magic Series Book 1) by Denise D. Young has captured my fancy and is not letting go. Anyone who is a fan of time travel stories (like Outlander) and witchy fiction (such as Practical Magic) will fall in love with this story, which is set in the small town of Willow Creek, Virginia.
Cassie Gearhart is a fantastic female protagonist and an easy character to relate to, even if she is a witch who has been asleep for 45 years. And then there’s Nick; the grandson of Cassie’s former High Priestess, and the only witch left alive to represent the coven. The author is an artist the way she weaves 1974 and 2019 together via Cassie. The imagery and details are rich and poignant, and Tangled Fates, book number 2, is next on my to-be-read list. I highly recommend this book and author with 5 stars!

This was a great first book in the Tangled Magic series. I love how the author combines paranormal and romance and how the author creates characters that are believable.

Cassie is a witch. After escaping her family she becomes part of a Coven at Willow Creek. When her brother comes to get her and bring her home she casts a spell for help so her brother can’t find her. That was in 1974.

Fast forward to 2019 and Cassie finds herself awake back in Willow Creek and nothing is how she remembers it.
Cassie meets Nick. Nick turns out to be the grandson of her former priestess of her Coven. Nick is reluctant to have anything to do with magic but as much as they try something magical is drawing them together.

Why are they drawn to each other? What happened to Cassie’s Coven? What magical force is working to push them together and what dark force is working to destroy them all.

This book was a beautiful start to a “tangled” story. See what I did there? No, but seriously, this book is seriously good with the way it wraps around you as the reader is entwined in this great story.
Amazing read for anybody interested in fantasies as I am. I liked this read from start to finish. I’m ready to delve deeper into the rest of this series as it’s captured my attention and it’s worth the read!

Cassie Gearhart is a young witch trying to escape from her family so that she can practice the thing she loves most, magic, her element is the air and she is powerful, so when she goes into the woods behind her adopted home in 1974 to cast a spell to hide her from her family, she doesn’t bargain on the price she must pay to do it, she is transformed into a tree and that is where she stays for forty five years. Nick Felston is a young man with tragedy written all over his features, he feels responsible for things which happened in the past and because of this, he refuses to use the magic he has been born with and has decided to sell his family home and move far away to the desert to escape the looks and comments of the people living in his small town.

The day he speaks to the realtor and signs the paperwork to sell his house is the day a huge storm breaks, it scares him more than he will admit to, but at the height of the storm and in the middle of the night, he is distracted by a knock on the door and when he opens it and comes face to face with a woman who looks like she has been sleeping in the woods and is more than bedraggled. This woman is Cassie and she has just been freed, however, she has no idea how much time has passed, so she is surprised to see a young male witch instead of her friend and when she asks to see the owner of the house, her high priestess of the coven, she is devastated to find out that her friend is dead. Nick is not very hospitable to begin with, but he does offer Cassie some tea and a blanket from a chest in the corner and tells her about the amount of time which has past since she cast her spell, however, Cassie isn’t feeling welcome, so she decides to head out on her own and find somewhere to figure out what is going on, this is when Nick realises that the woman is telling the truth that she has no idea what year it is and remedies his mistake and goes out into the storm to find her.

When they get back to the cottage, Cassie and Nick talk a little and come to an understanding, however, the next day, the attraction between them starts to blossom, however, both of them are scared at the magnitude of their feelings and Nick tries to push Cassie away, but after a few days pass, they struggle to keep denying it. The one thing they cannot deny is that their magic is drawn to the other so strongly that they realise that something deeper must be going on, that feeling increases when they meditate together and both have visions, but will they be able to overcome their hesitancy and work together to figure out what the visions mean, or will their dark pasts come back to haunt them? This is a paranormal romance in a small town where unexpected things can happen and the unpredictability leaves you wanting to know more.
