Review of Bewitching Season-Marissa Doyle

This novel is about twin girls coming of age in London during a time just before Victoria becomes queen.  With all of the balls, frocks, court intrigue and romance, this book wouldn't be very interesting except for one element:  magic.  Persy and Pen have a beloved governess who tutors them in all of the essentials but also instructs them in magic.  When the governess mysteriously disappears, the girls get clues that she is hidden in Kensington Palace and they must use all of their wits to try to rescue her.  Helped by their little brother, who has some magic of his own, and a dashing lord, with a crush on Persy, they race against the clock to save their governess before Victoria is crowned queen. 3 Elves - Recommended for both middle grade readers and teens
