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.

Three Kisses, One Midnight is an enchanting tale that’s full of pure magic! It is comprised of three novellas, each told from three different points of view. Three best friends, Onny, Ash and True have called themselves the Coven since they were little kids, and this tale involves their quest for love. It takes place near Halloween, making it the perfect fall read. The first story is Onny’s story, the second is Ash’s story, and the third is True’s story. I found this format easy to follow and I really enjoyed it! I would also like to mention that there’s a great cast of diverse characters which I found very appealing.
The town of Moon Ridge was founded 400 years ago, and legend says that a young woman perished that night at the stroke of midnight when she was supposed to embark with her true love. Every century since, one day a year, the Lady of Moon Ridge comes down from the stars to walk among the people of the town. It is said that she will help those willing to follow their hearts’ desire.
This year at Moon Ridge High, the Coven will come together at a masquerade ball like never before and will interlace magic, science, and art. Onny, Ash, and True believe that everything is in alignment to bring them what they’ve been seeking, all with a little help from Onny’s grandmother’s love potion.
Nothing turns out to be as easy as the friends think. As midnight draws near, the Coven will learn that it takes more than a spell to recognize when love is offered and embrace the magic that follows.
I thought all three of these stories were absolutely adorable! If you’re looking for a quick read, that’s romantic and heartwarming, this one is for you.
