Product Description

As if being a high school student isn’t already hard enough, Bobby Hawthorne and his best friend, Angelina Dellapicallo, struggle to understand the emerging secrets of witchcraft and magic — secrets strictly guarded by Bobby’s overprotective mother and her friends. The unexpected appearance of his spirited grandfather sets in motion a series of events that sweep the young teens down a dangerous path — one inhabited by an ancient evil that threatens not only Bobby and Angelina but their whole community of witches as well.

Pixies can’t stop the hellhounds . . . but they have sounded the alarm . . . and the magic users must respond . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars A fast, exciting YA novel! 14 February 2017
By RJ Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Bobby Hawthorne is the son of a witch. His mother, a chef who owns a restaurant, has a secret she hides from her Texan neighbors. She can whip up more than one kind of magic in the kitchen. But Bobby, he's normal. Just another teenage boy, going to high school, crushing on the new girl Angelina, joining his own garage band.

Normal. Nothing out of the ordinary. His life no different than any other teenage boy even with a witch for a mother.

But all that changes when Skip Macintosh walks into his life. He's the new business partner for his widowed mother's restaurant and Bobby's not happy. He's sure Skip's up to no good. With Angelina's help, he'll delve into the truth and discover just what happened to his father.

Oh, and stumble across a centuries old war between the fundamentalist Blackthornes and the witches they want to exterminate. Bobby and Angelina will have to learn fast about the hidden world of magic around them if they want any chance of surviving the darkness rising about them.

Son of a Kitchen Witch is a phenomenal YA story. Hemlin has crafted a rich world of colorful witches living beneath the noses of normal people. Magic and wonder lurks around every corner. The characters are fun and populated by personalties that will keep you reading. Bobby is a solid character and has great chemistry with Angelina. The pair work well together.

It was refreshing having the main character just no about his mother's secret powers. It's all so upfront in the beginning. I'm Bobby, my mom's a chef, and she's a witch sort of thing. To him, it's nothing special.

This is a great, fun read that puts a very American spin on the story of witches living among us in the real world, blending Texan culture and Native American mythology together into something unique and enjoyable. If you're a fan of fast-paced, YA stories, then you need to give Son of a Kitchen Witch a read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Read! 27 May 2017

I love this book, the exciting, enrapturung story line captured my imagination immediately. I couldn't stop reading till the,end.

I'm hard to please. I don't care for gratuitous sex or violence and love fascinating plot twists and character development. This story has my favorite things and more.

I'm waiting with excitement for the second installment. Timothy Hemlin is an author worth reading, savoring, and then rereading. I've read this book four times, a very rare occurrence. Read, and enjoy! Share as a gift with a friend!
5.0 out of 5 stars The characters are so vivid, it’s difficult to applaud ... 12 April 2017

The characters are so vivid, it’s difficult to applaud the performance of one or other. Of course, Bobby and Angelina are “hors concours”. It’s pure Wicca without hyperbole. Suspense at the right moments and intensity. Even though the acme of the yarn is the lack of a solid winner – balance is what makes the world go ‘round –, a sequel is almost mandatory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for teens 10 April 2017
By Yvonne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Bobby Hawthorne Jr was your typical teenager, not one of then IT crowd, but mainly left alone except by Jimmy Pearson, he knew which buttons to press to make Bobby really angry especially when it came to his best friend and secret crush Angelina Dellapicallo. The only thing that made him different to all the other teenagers was that his mom was a witch. Olivia was a chef and owner of a restaurant, she had been running it by herself since her husband died when Bobby was young. She manages to keep her secret from her neighbours even with Jax the pixie flitting about and with her close friends Crystal and Earlene help keep Bobby safe, much to the annoyance of Bobby who feels that they are keeping far too many secrets and when his granddad turns up he knows to be worried. With the appearance of hellhounds and the dark magic getting stronger can Bobby and his witchy friends survive.
It was nice to have a main character with flaws, Bobby was not your perfect teenager, his anger issues got him referred to a counsellor which even in today’s society is still not a subject that is openly discussed. The story highlighted how close Bobby and Angelina were and although they did fancy each other, it showed that their friendship was a lot stronger than a teenage crush. When Bobby shared his secret with Angelina it showed how mature Angelina was and enforced how much trust they had with each other. Olivia was an overprotective mother, but with what happened to her husband you could understand why. The inclusion of the minor characters was explained in detail and one of my favourite characters was Cactus Rose, who Bobby found out to be his Great Aunt. A witch who was not afraid to dabble with the dark side.
Having read the author’s mystery book, I can say without a doubt, that he is definitely a multi genre author and yet again has written an exciting story. This story is full of action with a hint of mystery and with the use of magic anything is possible. A great read which will suit young and older readers alike and with the story finishing with the hint of book 2 I hope it will not be long before I read more of Bobby’s adventures.
