My Review
Judy Goodwin takes us into a magical world in which her characters really come to life. I absolutely adored  the characters in this novel. Likable characters with real issues can really do wonders for how much a reader connects to a book. 

I was a little skeptical thinking that the lack of Romance would hinder the novel, but the focus on the relationship between Twins is highlighted and makes up for that.

Be prepared to go through many highs and lows and be taken for a crazy wonderful ride. Thoroughly enjoyable, excited to see what comes next! 

Judy Goodwin has been writing since she was a child, when her fourth grade English instructor told her, ‘You should be a writer.” She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative Writing from the University of Arizona, and a Master’s in Education from Argosy University. Over the last ten years she has appeared in several small press magazines and anthologies with her fantasy and science fiction short stories and poetry. Her first novel was published in January 2013, entitled Heart of the Witch. 

When not working on her fiction, Judy works as a technical writer in a healthcare services firm. She enjoys bullying the sheriff at the local renaissance festival, volunteering at local charities, and catching up on the latest movies. She lives in Gilbert, Arizona with her partner and teenage daughter, four cats, and three small dogs.
