The Professor Woos the Witch by Kristen Painter

Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year. The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better.

Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all.

Pandora Williams is Nocturne Falls’ most successful real estate agent. And least successful witch. Her magic never has the intended outcome, but she’s learned to live with that. Mostly. Yes, it sucks, but what can she do? Then a hot new neighbor shows up and suddenly her magic works. Very cool, but very suspect. Especially since he’s a total non-believer.

Cole Van Zant likes practicality and absolutes. Things he can see and touch. So not magic. But when his teenage daughter insists she’s a witch—and they’re now living in a town that celebrates Halloween every day—he needs help. Of the witchy variety. Thankfully, his sexy neighbor buys into all that hocus pocus.

Enlisting her help seems like a great idea until spending time together reveals a supernatural surprise about who Cole really is. A secret even he didn’t know. Could Pandora and Cole really be meant for one another or is their attraction too much to believe?

Kristen Painter takes us to the town of Nocturne Falls once again in The Professor Woos the Witch. This series keeps getting better and better, while at the same time making the reader feel at home in the sleepy, Halloween themed town.


In this book we get a peek inside the life of the town’s most popular realtor, Pandora, who also happens to be a witch with screwed up powers. Her magic has never worked quite right. Cole and his daughter move to town and everything in Pandora’s life is about to change. Cole’s 13 year old daughter believes she is a witch.


Each book in this series is cute and fun, the characters likeable and the romance sweet but not easy. These are fun books that, while they are part of a series, can all be read as stand alones, but if you do read them out of order, it will give away parts of the previous books.


I have enjoyed every book I’ve read in this series so far and this book is no different. They do follow a bit of a pattern, as many books do, but I am happy to overlook that because they are just so damn addictive!


I recommend this book (and this series) to anyone looking for a quick and fun read with paranormal elements and romance.
