New York Times bestselling authors Roshani Chokshi, Evelyn Skye, and Sandhya Menon craft a spellbinding novel about discovering the magic of true love on one fateful, magical night in Three Kisses, One Midnight.
The town of Moon Ridge was founded 400 years ago and everyone born and raised there knows the legend of the young woman who perished at the stroke of twelve that very same night, losing the life she was set to embark on with her dearest love. Every century since, one day a year, the Lady of Moon Ridge descends from the stars to walk among the townsfolk, conjuring an aura upon those willing to follow their hearts’ desires.
“To summon joy and love in another’s soul
For a connection that makes two people whole
For laughter and a smile that one can never miss
Sealed before midnight with a truehearted kiss.”
This year at Moon Ridge High, a group of friends known as The Coven will weave art, science, and magic during a masquerade ball unlike any other. Onny, True, and Ash believe everything is in alignment to bring them the affection, acceptance, and healing that can only come from romance—with a little help from Onny’s grandmother’s love potion.
But nothing is as simple as it first seems. And as midnight approaches, The Coven learn that it will take more than a spell to recognize those who offer their love and to embrace all the magic that follows.

Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin's Press/Wednesday Books for allowing me to read a copy in exchange for an honest review.
A colossal thank you to Roshani Chokshi; Sandhya Menon; Evelyn Skye for writing Three Kisses, One Midnight because this book is 100% magical.
How do I put this book into words that would accurately describe the magical feeling like discovering a book for the first time or looking at the full moon for the first time. It is like being in an open field away from the city and seeing the starry sky and realizing how infinitely big the universe is. It is lying on the field next to a soul mate pointing out cloud shapes and having fingers touch. it is like greeting old friends after not seeing them for over a decade. It is being a child when it rains during sunshine looking for a rainbow.
I willingly took the love potion because I am completely in love with this book and all of its characters and the world of Moon Ridge with its ghosts and fables. With love potions and discovering true love and the coveted kiss at midnight.
All of the stars
all of the feels
And if you want to read the train wreck that is me trying to put my feelings into words (barely) you can read the full review on my blog (Bookgirl Reviews Books) here: https://bookgirlreviewsbooks.blogspot.com/2022/03/three-kisses-one-midnight-by-roshani.html

The three authors are clearly having a blast telling their stories and celebrating teen love and witchcraft. While there is definitely hint of the supernatural, the stories feel like spooky YA romcoms. Three friends are in The Coven; named this for Onny’s love of astrology and charms. She decides to brew then all up a love potion.
Onny plans to use hers on Alexander the Great-Looking, but Byron gets in the way.
Ash wants to use it on Cassidy his neighbor that he’s had a crush on for years.
True is heartbroken and doesn’t want a love potion after a terrible boyfriend. She’s science over supernatural, but when she meets Orion she sees how perfectly they mix.
The supporting characters are also a delight. Particularly their vampire-like teacher Mr. Brightsides and his polar opposite husband, the sweet Mayor Grimjoy.
