#BookReview & #Giveaway of Ratchet the Reluctant Witch by @pascoesara

Ratchet the Reluctant WitchBe careful what you wish for. Fourteen-year-old Rachel Hollingsworth ('that's Ratchet to you, mate) is sick of living in foster care. Desperate for her independence, she runs away. But unaware she's a witch, she accidentally travels back in time to the notorious Essex witch trials, along with her social worker-witch mentor Bryony and Oscar the cat. They all face execution, their powers are failing and time is running out. They barely escape, but with Ratchet's powers still out of control, they land in Old Istanbul. Life is good here. In fact it's amazing. And her skills are coming on. She becomes known for her fortune telling, and eventually is invited to the Palace to read the Sultan's wife's future. But the Sultana has something else in mind. She holds Ratchet's friends hostage, until she does 'one small favour'. With her friends' lives in the balance, Ratchet has to make the most difficult decisions of her life, and carry them out - all on her own.





I've come to writing fiction after a career in psychology, neuroscience and public policy. I've been very lucky to have had all sorts of interesting and fun jobs including, bicycle mechanic, working with chimpanzees, research on human brains, and working in the US Congress. Other work, as a clinical psychologist was rewarding and moving.
I have lived on the East Coast, West Coast and in the middle in the US, and finally lived somewhere longer than eight years once I moved to the UK. I now live in Bournemouth, a beach town where I run a B&B with my husband, for English Language students. And write.

This was great...even better because we share the same name!! I love short and simple books like this one. Oscar the cat was my FAVORITE character! Holy cow was he sarcastic and I loved it!! This is a wonderful book for anyone to read. And please do! You will not regret it one bit!
