LIKED IT






Product Description



The promising debut of a hot new voice in paranormal romance-and the first of the Southern Witch novels.The family magic seems to have skipped over Tammy Jo Trask. All she gets are a few untimely visits from long-dead, smart-mouthed family ghost Edie. But when her locket-an heirloom that happens to hold Edie's soul-is stolen in the midst of a town-wide crime spree, it's time for Tammy to find her inner witch.After a few experiences with her dysfunctional magic, Tammy turns to the only person in small-town Duval, Texas, who can help: the very rich and highly magical Bryn Lyons. He might have all the answers-and a 007 savoir faire to boot-but the locket isn't the only heirloom passed down in Tammy's family. She also inherited a warning: stay away from Lyons.

I enjoyed this debut about a witch who doesn't know she is one. As Tammy Jo discovers her powers, she takes control over her life. It is nice to see a character develop and grow. The only part of the story that irked me was the down-home-isms. I love Texas, but I don't imagine all of the people there speak with so many colloquialisms. When the author stuck to witty dialogue and plot, it shined.
