Can’t Wait Wednesday – THE EX HEX by Erin Sterling
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is THE EX HEX by Erin Sterling. If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time, you probably know that I love a good witchy read. I also read that the author described this as Hocus Pocus with sex and that pretty well sold me, lol.
THE EX HEX by Erin Sterling
Publication Date: October 5, 2021 by William Morrow
New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins, writing as Erin Sterling, casts a spell with a spine-tingling romance full of wishes, witches, and hexes gone wrong.
Nine years ago, Vivienne Jones nursed her broken heart like any young witch would: vodka, weepy music, bubble baths…and a curse on the horrible boyfriend. Sure, Vivi knows she shouldn’t use her magic this way, but with only an “orchard hayride” scented candle on hand, she isn’t worried it will cause him anything more than a bad hair day or two.
That is until Rhys Penhallow, descendent of the town’s ancestors, breaker of hearts, and annoyingly just as gorgeous as he always was, returns to Graves Glen, Georgia. What should be a quick trip to recharge the town’s ley lines and make an appearance at the annual fall festival turns disastrously wrong. With one calamity after another striking Rhys, Vivi realizes her silly little Ex Hex may not have been so harmless after all.
Suddenly, Graves Glen is under attack from murderous wind-up toys, a pissed off ghost, and a talking cat with some interesting things to say. Vivi and Rhys have to ignore their off the charts chemistry to work together to save the town and find a way to break the break-up curse before it’s too late.

I’d love to hear what upcoming book releases you’re waiting on this Wednesday? Leave me your link in the comments below and I’ll stop by and check out your CWW selection for this week. 🙂
Oh, this sounds so fun! I feel like most stories about witches are pretty serious, and this sounds like it will have some humor!
I was thinking the same thing. 🙂
This looks like so much fun. And the description of Hocus Pocus + sex is hilarious. 🙂

I think I’m now in a witchy mood too! I didn’t realize Rachel Hawkin had a pen name.
I didn’t either. I was so excited when I realized she had written this.
Oh this sounds really cute. Always love a good witchy book.
Me too. 🙂
