My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Great book… in some ways reminds me of Beautiful Disaster. Def. a gut-wrencher with a killer love story and emotional turmoil! Highly Recommend!
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Nice little love story set amid a scenic winery, with a decent dose of family secrets, horrible Ex’s and the like.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A little heavy on the religious aspects (mainly concerning the MC and her marriage) for my tastes, but over all a decent book showing how things work out the way they are supposed to, and not how you think you want things to go…
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Overall a decent read. I spent a little too much time at the beginning trying to figure out what was going on, since the story starts rather abruptly. (I know, I know… hook the reader and all that.) Maybe there was too many things going on and not enough time to process anything from the start.
I did like the characters, but at times they felt a little younger than I think they were supposed to. The premise of the novel is intriguing, but I felt the ending conflict was done a little too easy, or something.
The writing was good and the story line fairly unique, so I am still interested to see where the series heads though!
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Interesting “light” paranormal about a woman who can see and talk to ghosts– and owns a bookstore, the hot new business owner next door, and the *itch that owns the clothing store across the street.
As with the other books by Pressey that I’ve read, her humor and ability to give us quirky, realistic characters is what makes the books. The plotting in this book was fine (if though a little obvious)but the sparkle is in the people.
I’ll read more of the series for sure.

I’m a huge fan of HP Mallory’s. Not only does she invent such quirky characters, but she has a way of making me divide my loyalties when it comes to who the main character, Jolie, should end up with (in my opinion.) And her creative plot lines are so much fun to immerse myself in and drown out the daily sorking-stiff boredom.
That said, I found this latest installment in the series a bit of a departure from the “norm” of things. I don’t want to give away any of the plotting, but I’ll just say that this book is more focused on Jolie (independent of the whole Rand/ Sinjin thing) and that took some getting used to. Like I said earlier, I am soooo on the fence about which guy is the *right* one for her that I crave move screen time with each of them.
Something Witchy also reveals a few big surprises that will forever alter Jolie’s path, so if you haven’t picked up your copy of this novel yet hurry up and do so! I’ve been waiting for the release for months just so I could discuss!

Doh! I completely spaced on telling everyone that my book Kill Me made an appearance over on the wildly popular blog VampChix & Bite Club.
Honestly, this summer is kicking my tail.
Between my other job as a Photographer (wedding and Senior portrai season!), kids, baseball, helping my sis plan her wedding, writing, prepping for back to school… well, you get the picture. I’m uber-busy.
Which is why I’m so thankful for other blogs that read, review or even post about my books. Nothing like web copy that I don’t have to do a thing for!
To me, the series is getting better and better with each book. Or maybe it’s just that I’ve become so invested in Samantha and her life that I’m addicted? Whatever the reason, this book hit home especially hard for me (as a Mother myself).
Torn between the lesser evil of two unthinkable choices, Samantha has a very short amount of time to come to a decision, and then an even shorter period to reverse the consequences of her decision. While looking for answers she ends up on the radar of a big-bad Vamp and may have the decision taken out of her hands entirely.
The tension in this book is way up there and made for another excellent read. I only wish I’d seen a little more of Fang– I don’t quite know what to make of him yet, and Mr. Furry irritates me for some reason. So despite my lack of the full picture I find myself squarely in Team Fang land. Anxious for the next book in the series!
