The Midnight Witch, by Paula Brackston

Set in 1913, this historical fiction with a supernatural gloss is trying to be Jane Austen with witches, but it is just not happening. The heroine, daughter of an earl, falls for a starving artist and worries about heading up the local coven, but the author does not draw her set pieces well, her action sequences are muddled, and she never makes us care about the characters. Not recommended.
