"Not just a pretty cover!"
The magic that has flowed through the Trask family seems to
have skipped Tammy Jo. The only thing supernatural that
happens to her is that she can see a long dead family
ghost. The surprise visits from Edie only brings Tammy
trouble and some people even think she is a little crazy.
So when the heirloom that holds the family ghost is stolen,
Tammy has to get her witch on and get Edie's soul back
before something nasty happens.
With only a bit of experience with magic, Tammy has to use
what she remembers from her childhood to do what she has to
do. Suddenly Tammy finds herself on a roller coaster ride
in the supernatural world of Duvall, Texas and has two men
fighting over her. One man is her over-protective ex and
the other is on a list of men her family are warned not to
When I saw this book reviewed somewhere I automatically
added it to my wishlist. Not only did the story sound
interesting but it has an amazing cover! So when I won a
copy of this book I was over the moon and couldn't wait for
it to arrive. When it did get here I couldn't stop myself
from diving into it straight away and found myself addicted
within a few chapters.
The stubborn but feisty Tammy was a breath of fresh air.
She reminds me a little of Stephanie Plum with some Sookie
Stackhouse mixed in. The plot flowed nicely, was full of
action and filled with the paranormal. Witches, vampires
and werewolves all make their appearance in this debut
novel and there was even promise of more to come in the
The cool and sophisticated cat, Mercuito makes a wonderful
addition to the storyline and I am sure there is something
more about that cat we have yet to learn. The main men in
Tammy's life make interesting reading. Both gorgeous, both
have their own special talents and both are very important
to Tammy throughout the book and definitely for her future.
I can see Tammy getting herself into trouble over those two!
I can't wait for Barely Bewitched, the next book coming out
in the Southern Witch Series. Kimberly Frost has written
something which mixes urban paranormal, romance and chick-
lit and made it unique and original without even trying. I
highly recommend lovers of the genre to try this one out
for size. It has something for everyone.
