Nothing good comes from living in the Devil’s swamp.

Willow Bell thinks moving to the Okefenokee area isn't half bad, but nothing prepares her for what awaits in the shadows of the bog.

Girls are showing up dead in the swamp. And she could be next.

Everyone warns Willow to stay away from Beau Cadwell—the bad boy at the top of their suspect list as the serial killer tormenting the small town.

But beneath his wicked, depthless eyes, there's something else that draws Willow to him.

When yet another girl he knew dies, though, Willow questions whether she can trust her instincts…or if they're leading to her own death.

By Chelsea January 24, 2018

As an adult with grown up responsibilities and big girl woes, it's refreshing to jump into a YA novel that is neither pretentious nor related to current events. Not that the heavy young adult contemporaries aren't enjoyable or much needed, but sometimes my brain needs an escape for pure pleasure rea ...more

This was a fun young adult contemporary with the unusual setting of a southern swamp..... this book is classified as a romantic suspense, however I read several reviews before reading this that said it was heavier on the romance than the suspense.... so I went into this expecti ...more

By Carrie January 17, 2018

Wicked Charm by Amber Hart is supposed to be a young adult romantic thriller which would lead a reader to believe it would be heavy on the thrills and light on the romance. However, this one really seemed to focus mostly on the romance and add a bit of thriller on the side.

The story starts with the ...more

First of all, don't get confused by the summary because this is a romance! It tricked me, I thought this would be a mystery novel with some romance aspects but it was the completely other way around. 75% romance and 25% mystery. I don't mind actually, I like this combination ...more

So great I blurbed it! My non-blurby-language review - Amber's so fantastic at voicey characters, and creating this incredibly vivid sense of place through the lenses of her narrators' experiences. And she writes outside the usual upper-middle class YA protagonist bubble, which is an added bonus. Go ...more

Wicked charm is a suspense, mysterious novel set in Okefenokee, Georgia alongside a boggy swamp. It's a little spooky, it's quirky and unique.

Willow Bell and her parents are moving in with her grandmother. She lives in a desolate area near a swamp. Their only neighbours are the Cadwell family. A di ...more

By OutlawPoet December 27, 2017

So Wicked Charm, by Amber Hart, is a romantic suspense thriller for teens.

Well, there’s a little more emphasis on the romance than on the mystery, but I did enjoy our murder mystery and the author did a pretty good job at keeping that aspect suspenseful.

The atmosphere of the book is sultry Southern ...more

By Heather January 23, 2018

I'm a huge fan of Amber Hart's writing. From her riveting BEFORE YOU and AFTER US duology to her UNTAMED duology, she has a way of instantly drawing the reader in with her well-drawn characters, the instant romantic tension between her main characters, and with her unique and well-described settings ...more

3 1/2-4 stars

Wicked Charm was a pretty fast paced mystery, but there was also a big focus on romance. It somewhat took up more of the book than the actual murders did. It's told in alternating chapters by the two main characters, Willow and Beau.

Willow has recently moved in with her grandma in the s ...more

Thank you to Entangled Teen and Netgalley for a copy of the eARC in exchange for a fair review.

This was such a struggle to put a star rating on this. On one hand, there's a lot of bark but no bite. On the other, what is there is lovely in it's own right. Regardless, I have a lot to say about this.

1. The characters. Elaborating on what I said above, it's made very clear that Beau Cadwell is th ...more

By Becky February 12, 2018

Wicked Charm is a slow-moving, creepy and atmospheric read. Since much of it takes place in a swamp, in one respect this is pretty appropriate. As a reader, though, it gets a bit frustrating at times as you start to feel that like Willow and Beau, you're spending just a bit too much of the book floa ...more

One of my favorite books to read are thrillers so I was excited to dive into Wicked Charm! Wicked Charming is a fun suspenseful read with plenty of romance.
