Well 2020 is almost over and to end the year we have a new book from JR. Rain and Hp Mallory CASHMERE CURSES ( book one in the Wanda's Witchery series )
Time to walk softly and carry a big stake…I had it all.
A powerful coven. A charming Victorian mansion. A sexy car. A couture closet. Credit cards up the wazoo, and an endearing familiar.
Actually, scratch that, Hellcat would never be described as ‘endearing’. More like: the bane of my existence.
So, I almost had it all.
Then a vampire came along and ruined it when he turned me into a Blood Witch.
Now, I’ve been kicked out of my coven, kicked out of the mansion, I have no credit to speak of, the Lexus is a thing of the past and, not only am I driving something from the 80s, but it’s also unapologetically yellow. And rusted.
But the biggest kicker of all? I’m still stuck with Hellcat.
Even though my luck has too much in common with a toilet, if Wanda Depraysie is anything… it’s determined. Determined to make a go of things all by myself—determined to start over.
So, I pack up the few items I can actually call my own and I move to the only place that doesn’t fall under coven ownership—a little town in Oregon called Haven Hollow.
Imagine my surprise when I find out a gypsy has already taken up residence in this afterthought of a town. Well, no worries, witch magic trumps gypsy magic and I’ll make short work of her. After all, Haven Hollow is way too small for the two of us.
No, the gypsy won’t be an issue. It’s my new landlord who’s going to be the death of me… possibly quite literally. Why? Because he’s none other than the vampire who turned me into a Blood Witch in the first place, thereby ruining my life.
Lorcan Rowe is the most infuriatingly smug, irritatingly determined and offensively nosy person I’ve ever met and if my magic were functioning correctly, I’d hex him into oblivion.
But, that’s just it—my magic is on the fritz. And that won’t do—especially when I need to open my enchanted clothing store, Wanda’s Witchery, yesterday.
When my fabrics go missing at the same time that my magic stops working, I can only blame one person: Lorcan.
Well, that vampire is about to learn a very valuable lesson—you don’t mess with a witch, blood or otherwise, because when the going gets tough, the tough get a really sharp stake.
Wanda is not having a good week . She leaves her coven because her mother wants to hide her away because of what happened to her . She is on the hunt for a new place where she can call home. When she comes to Haven Hollow where she feels at home . Until she finds out that there is a gypsy living there and to top it off the Vampire that turned her into a blood witch is now her landlord and her neighbor . When things start to go missing and her magic goes on the fritz she has to enlist the friends of Haven Hollow to help find out what is going on before she stakes the one man who actually makes her heart beat a little faster .
Ok I am going to tell you a little something when I started reading Wanda's book . I really didn't like her , to me she was whiny and was coming of as a brat . All she was doing was thinking about herself and how she was going to get rid of her competition or what she thought of as her competition . As I read I found out that she was growing on me and that I really started to care for her . She really grows up and realizes that there is more to being a person then what you can do . Its about the friends that you get along the way and you might actually find love along the way too. Lorcan is hilarious as you see him worry and obsessing about Wanda , There are characters from Poppy's potions that come out to play in this book also . Together everyone is so fun to read and you will love them
I truly love these two authors and their writing styles complement each other . They love to take you a roller coaster ride that will have you laughing all the way through it . The characters they write have their flaws but you get to see them work through the flaws and come out better people. This is a book you can sit down in an evening and read and trust me there are parts of the book that will have you laughing so hard you could snort . I can't wait to see where the authors take the characters and who they bring in to other books in the series . So if you want a fun book to end off the year check it out .
