Well, I'm a sucker for the downtrodden, non-douchebag character getting a windfall and/or HEA. Add in part of the windfall being two precocious cats ... had to check it out eventually.
This was a cute story with an unnecessary murder mystery added. I suppose the genre is chicklit paranormal cozy-mystery. Very light on the mystery, the paranormal and the merest spark of romantic interest but no actual romance past opening breakup with douchebag ex. Her being a witch not explored yet in any depth. The mysteries of her aunt, her new cats, new house, being a witch -- all would have been enough mystery without a dead body.
I liked the the story and the cast of characters well enough that eventually I might check the next in series out of the library when in the mood. Could have used way more scenes with the cats, of course.
I put off reading because of mixed reviews: many liking the book and many screaming to please get an editor. In edition I just read — there were no semicolons where needed. Commas were missing, inserted where not needed and/or flat out misused in some places.
I think my mood and the fact that it was a shortish book with mostly simpler writing saved me from DNF'ing over editing issues. That said, I did start noticing and if book had been longer ... At any rate, I started counting semicolons and there either were none or I overlooked.
Semicolons = still zero.
★★½☆☆ = Liked parts; parts only okay. Would read more by author.
