GoodReads Summary:
James Wentworth has a secret. He lives quietly in Salem, Massachusetts, making few ties anywhere. One night his private world is turned upside down when he meets Sarah Alexander, a dead ringer for his wife, Elizabeth. Though it has been years since Elizabeth's death, James cannot move on.
Sarah also has a secret. She is haunted by nightmares about the Salem Witch Trials, and every night she is awakened by visions of hangings, being arrested, and dying in jail. Despite the obstacles of their secrets, James and Sarah fall in love. As James comes to terms with his feelings for Sarah, he must dodge accusations from a reporter desperate to prove that James is not who, or what, he seems to be. With the help of their friends, witches Jennifer and Olivia, James and Sarah piece their stories together and discover a mystery that may bind them in ways they never imagined. Will James make the ultimate sacrifice to protect Sarah and prevent a new hunt from bringing hysteria to Salem again?

I was attracted to this book the moment that I saw it's cover.  It's haunting and beautiful in a spooky sort of way.  The type of cover that always draws me in.

I was so excited that this book was about the Salem Village witch trials because I've always had an obsession with them (I even did my 7th grade history paper on the event).  I've always wanted to visit Salem so it was awesome to read a novel that takes place there.

This book had so much more to it than I had originally though and it only made me love it more.  I loved the Wiccan aspects of it and thought they were done very well.

Overall, I believe that Her Dear and Loving Husband is very well written and an enjoyable read.  If you're interested in the witch trials, then this book is for you.  I would definitely recommend giving it a try.

Character: Sarah & James.
Rating: 4 Stars.
