A dual narration by Piper Goodeve and Tim Paige introduces a cozy Connecticut town that is about to experience a magical apocalypse. Local business owner Jessica Gold and new-to-town Derrick Winters believe that a high school witch can help avert disaster. While Jessica's friends' voices are not always distinct in conversation, Goodeve clearly evokes Piper's guilt about her past magical mishaps, along with her tentative interest in Derrick. Paige mirrors Derrick's lack of familiarity with the West Harbor lifestyle, as well as his apprehension about deceiving Jessica. While Derrick is well portrayed, Paige could better communicate Cabot's humor. Derrick and Jessica's romance sounds genuine in dialogue, but neither narrator seems fully invested in Cabot's campy but feminist tale. Story and narrators struggle to coalesce.
