Sage Springs Series by Hollie Westring
Whispers and Wishes
Sage Springs #1
Eliza Monroe has been traveling the United States for three years, immersing herself in the towns she visits as she searches for the mother she’s never known. She hopes returning to her grandmother’s inn in Sage Springs, Mo., will provide the break she needs to evaluate her lonely life.
What Eliza isn’t expecting is to have two men enter the picture, not making her decision to stay or leave any easier. One has been her foundation, while the other is as comfortable as she is hopping from city to city. Throw in a kooky grandmother, a cheerful best friend, a sarcastic guest, a town where residents and spirits interact like neighbors, and Eliza has little time to contemplate her future.
Friendships grow, webs are spun and lies are revealed before Eliza comes to terms with what she wants in life and learns what’s really important.
LOVED it!!! What an awesome story! Loved the characters, except for Bianca, no one can like Bianca but she was a well written villain.
The love triangle in the story worked but I have to admit I was super torn about who to pick for Eliza because both Gavin and Jake were perfect. In the end I know she picked the right guy but I still feel sad about the other one because he was perfect too.
The story made me laugh many times, Gram was a very funny character. The friendships were incredibly well written. I loved Lexy and Ivy and cannot wait to read their stories.
The town was awesome, I have to say I would love to live in a town full of ghosts specially when everyone there sees them and they pretty much “live” together in harmony. They are nice ghosts, not the scary kind, just your regular folks that died in the town and stayed around. Oliver of course was the best ghost and he was pretty funny too.
I also loved that the story is very clean, I like stories like this and I will give it to my 14 year old daughter to read because I am sure she will love it.
Love the author’s writing style and will definitely be reading Spirits and Spells probably tomorrow.
Recommended if you like a good fun story with a bit of paranormal elements.

Spirits and Spells
Sage Springs #2
Ivy LaRue didn’t intend on being happy when she moved to Sage Springs, Mo., but that’s exactly what happened. First, Eliza and Lexi wiggled in through the cracks of her carefully constructed defensive walls. Now her best friend, a spirit, is in the flesh thanks to mysterious circumstances. And Ivy can’t help but notice it’s some mighty fine flesh, which just adds another layer of complication to her life.
With only days to find a cure to keep her friend in human form, Ivy attempts to find the town’s magical spring to save his life. While doing so, however, she must battle an unseen spirit who seems determined to make Ivy’s life as difficult as possible. Assistance comes from unlikely places as she faces her past to attain the future she never thought she wanted.
Casting spells, dodging love and forming friendships soon make this snarky witch realize life is much more interesting than she ever imagined it could be.
Awesome story! This one had a bit more mystery that book one in the series and I loved it. I also love the new characters introduced, like Cruz and Ivy’s mom, Mara. There was a bit of a twist when it came to Ivy’s mom that I didn’t see coming and it was a bit on the sad side but nothing that will make you cry or anything. When it came to Oliver and Ivy I had already fallen in love with both characters since book one so this one just made me fall in love with them even more. I loved their story, both characters so different yet perfect fro each other, I have to admit that I didn’t think they were going to be the couple in book 2, I just didn’t see it because they are so different but I am so glad the author made them fall in love. The friendships in the story with all 3 (Eliza, Lexi and Ivy) were just as good as in book one but because 6 months have passed they have become even tighter. The story had many funny parts and made me laugh often. With many twists to the story and all the mystery this one might be my fave in the series so far.
Well written, I love the authors writing style.
Super awesome ending to the story, loved how the author ended this one. Best HEA in the series so far. Super romantic!
Can’t wait to read book 3.
