Book: Would-Be Witch

Series Southern Witch #1

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 picked this book up because sounded cute
What I liked the Most? The laughter – I started laughing at the beginning of the book & didn’t stop

What I liked the Least? World building was really light

Review: OMG – this book is a little bit of a mixed up gem. I loved the helter-skelter fun pace, kinda like Stephanie Plum meets paranormal. I loved Tammy Jo (untrained, late-blooming witch) thrust into the trip from hell. You have to put your brain into suspended animation but for me it was well worth it, because I love a good laugh.

Recommended to: Fans of the absurd

Best Quote: “I heard you showed some backbone. I decided to visit in the vain hope that you might be turning interesting.”
