 Good morning all its the first day of November and yes the hallmark Christmas movies are playing in the background as I write this blog post . Today I have a great new series by two of my favourite authors . J.R Rain and Hp Mallory and their book GYPSY MAGIC ( Poppy's potions book one )

                              BOOK BLURB 

    Welcome to Haven Hollow, a town of monsters…

After dating a string of losers and banishing a poltergeist, I packed up my Los Angeles life and my eleven-year-old son, and moved… to a town in Oregon with a population of 680. Well, 682 now.
Culture shock anyone? Ahem, never mind that… New starts can happen anywhere, right?
I hope so because I need to start the next chapter of my forty-three year life pronto. So, why Haven Hollow? For one reason—there aren’t any witches here. And a witch can make a gypsy’s life… complicated.
Oh, right, I’ve put the cart before the horse…

Hi, I’m Poppy Morton and I come from a long line of Scottish gypsies—gypsies who possess magic and make potions to treat any and all ailments. It’s been my dream to open my own potions store and I’m finally going to do it—in the picturesque and small town of Haven Hollow.

Once my son, Finn, and I get settled in our two-story ramshackle, decrepit and rickety farmhouse (that happens to be bordering a cemetery), the nightmares start. And they won’t stop. Almost every night, I find myself face to face with a shadow monster—and its victim. And I’m fairly sure it’s the victim sending me the night terrors, wanting me to figure out the mystery of who or what murdered him.

But, I’m not really sure I want to get involved. Between facing a huge remodel of the above mentioned “house,” getting my son situated in his new school, opening my potions store and dealing with one of the ghosts from my last house who somehow thumbed a ride to this one, I’ve got my hands full. Actually, more than full.

Good thing I’ve got a few handsome neighbors to call on—Marty Zach, a self-professed ghost exorcist who just happens to have the sexiest smile, and Roy Osbourne, a bear of a man who looks like he alone coined the word ‘lumberjack.’

While I’m taken by Marty’s charm and Roy’s really-really-really broad shoulders, I can’t help but feel like this whole town is hiding a secret… and that’s the mystery I mostly want to solve, ghost visions be damned.

                      MY REVIEW 
   When Poppy and her son Finn pack up and move to Haven Hollow . They seem like they can start a new life there . Until they see the house which is a real fixer upper and is on the out skirts of a cemetery,  Poppy has an uneasy feeling when things start to go a little wonky . The real estate agent that looks like death to the people in town. Her gypsy instinct is kicking in there is more to this town then expected . With the help of her new best friend Marty and a few friends . They will get to the bottom of this strange town and know what they might just fit right in . 

  This is a great story with so many fun characters. Poppy is a Scottish traveler who has bounced from one bad relationship to another but now she is moving to a place where her and her son can live their lives in peace . Poppy is strong and fiercely protective of her son.  I love her and the fact that she is an older character 43 and has a kid . She struggles like most people but at the end of the day she is there for her son and her friends . Marty is her best friend and a big kid at heart he is a ghost hunter / graphic designer. He can be just a protective as Poppy. They are so much fun to read . There is also some fun characters  they are your typical small town store owners or are they . They could have something more to them then meets the eyes . 

  This is a fun filled story that I just couldn't put down . The authors have put their heads together and came up with some fun characters , they are so well written and you get to see them grow as you read along .  I love the fact that the characters are mature people that have been through it , not starry eyed young people that haven't lived , The story is a fun escape and you will be laughing all the way through . I will say there were a couple of spots in the middle of the story kind of dragged a bit but over all I truly loved this story and can't wait to see where the authors take us on this adventure . So check it out its part of the Paranormal Woman's Fiction series . So check it out I promise you will love it .
