The Goblins of Bellwater by Molly Ringle

Skye likes the woods.  They smell good, offer shade and protection against the wind and rain, and they have pretty flowers and mushrooms in them.  They have something else hidden in them, too...

Central Avenue Publishing and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published October 1st.

Skye and her sister occupy the family home.  Mom has moved to Portland to be near her boyfriend.  Skye is a barista and an artist and is hoping to get her artwork on display somewhere beyond the cafe she works in.  No one has mentioned the goblins in the woods to her, so when they ask her to follow their mushroom path, she does.  And then she falls under their spell.

If that's not bad enough, the young man she meets as she comes out of the woods is grabbed and kissed and she asks him to be her mate.  He's still standing there with his mouth agog when she disappears again.  Now he's been bespelled, too. 

When Skye's sister and his cousin find out what has happened, they try to break the spell.  It will take the local fae to help rid them of goblins and Livy will have to do all the work.

This is a good fantasy with lots of romance as well as magic to deal with.  You never know what the goblins are going to do next and they are very sneaky in wording their promises.  I wouldn't recommend playing in the woods with them.  It's hard to stay alive...
