Moon Garden by Wendy Mewes

Author: Wendy Mewes
ISBN: 0-9536001-1-4
Genre: Fiction.

Publisher: Red Dog Books

"Moon Garden is a witty and intuitive novel of love, growth and natural magic, the story of one man's struggle to get back on his feet after a string of personal disasters. Amongst other things, Rufus has to cope with a domineering ex-wife, the slipperiest of best friends, a dilapidated cottage bought by mistake and a mad old woman who can read his mind. At least he has a job to go to - but even that turns out to be something quite different to his expectations. As he comes into unwilling contact with the world of witches, Rufus learns that there are many kinds of magic and that love is not always what it seems."

I wanted to read this book a couple of years ago when it was first released. However, when I got this book last week, I was really looking forward to reading it and I have to say, I am so pleased I did.

I found this book to be really enjoyable and fun to read. It was one of those books I found hard to put down. I really liked Rufus and especially Cate. Reading some of the things Rufus got up to made me laugh loads. I loved the descriptions of the surroundings and felt that I was there with them every step of the way. This is such a cozy book, the sort you want to snuggle up with to read, with no interruptions. So I put this put in my Cozy Category along with Joanne Harris & Angela Huth.

Another thing I loved reading in this book was about the pagan way of life, it's so good to read a book that you can relate to and understand. However, there were a couple of characters that made me want to jump in the book and box them, because I became really fond of Rufus hehehe.

My Verdict; A Charming & Cozy Read. I loved it!!!
