Linda Wisdom has written a light hearted and funny paranormal that was a true gem of a read. 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover has everything to suit your paranormal needs. There is magic, action, some nice sex scenes and fuzzy bunny slippers that will munch on everything in sight. This is the first book I have ever read where bunny slippers (named Fluff and Puff) have teeth and are always hungry. When you are around them you better watch your toes. And Jazz, our witch loves to wear them. I think Fluff and Puff should have their own story. Can you imagine the adventures these bunnies would go on?
But for the moment this is Jazz’s adventure. Jazz is a seven hundred year old witch who was cast out from the Academy for Witches on her first day of class back in 1313. Her class was banished for one hundred years till they make amends. It looks like Jazz isn’t doing too well on that end because she is seven hundred years old after all. But Jazz doesn’t moan and groan about her poor immortal life. Jazz is a modern girl and embraces it. She is a working girl after all. She is a driver for the All Creatures Limo Service and in her spare time she helps get rid of curses and spells. But Jazz doesn’t work alone because her 1956 aqua-white Thunderbird convertible has the former owner in the front passenger seat. Irma is a ghost owned the car when she was alive and now she won’t go to the other side.
Everything is going great for Jazz, that is until vampire Nikolai Gregorvich comes back into her life and that is when things get interesting. Nick and Jazz have always had a very touchy relationship. She tends to throw fireballs at him when she gets angry with him. Nick and Jazz have had years… centuries of loving and fighting. These two can’t be cordial to each other, unless their mouths are busy when they are kissing each other. Nick needs Jazz’s help to defeat an old enemy of Jazz’s, which send chills down her spine.
What I especially liked was how Jazz and Nick became a great team, not just as a romantic couple, but two people who worked together to solve a mystery and defeat the bad guy. These two have great chemistry with each other and the intimacy between them was perfect. Linda has many years of writing under her belt with 70 books and many award nominations. This latest by her shows her skill at trying something new and creating really great characters that made me smile and laugh.
A witch, her sexy vampire lover and some rabid but cut fuzzy bunny slippers make 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover a hoot of a read.
Make sure to stop back on Friday when I post a one-on-one interview I did with Linda. There may be even a contest to come…
