First Sentence: "When I opened the door to greet my grandmother for the very first time, I'm not sure what I was expecting."

Fun and light hearted, and snigger under your breath funny in some places. It is silly and probably not the best the genre has to offer, and pretty predictable. But if you want a brain candy book to read this is it. I enjoyed it and it came in handy while on holidays.

Downloaded this book for free from kindle but I had also previously purchased the book. I passed on the physical book on and kept my free ebook.

The characters are interesting. Loved Grandma Gertie who is a biker grandmother who swears like a trooper. Pirate is cute, and provides a share of comic relief as the talking animal side kick. If a Jack Russel could talk I imagine this is almost exactly how you would expect a Jack Russell to speak. There is also the hot, spunky, paranormal love interest guy and Gerties coven who are a mixed bag of crazy.

The only thing that did annoy me was all the people Lizzie came into contact with seemed to think she should know everything about the magical world (that she previously had no idea existed), and the was surprised when she did something stupid. I understand there was a bit of a time crunch happening but was it really that hard for someone to say "drink the potion even thought there are dead squirrels and skunks in it to protect your ass"?

Don't take this book seriously and you will enjoy it.


  1. Amazon told me this wasn't available for Australia - so couldn't download it

  2. I own the second book to this was given to me. I have not read this first book, and need to.

    I love your "brain candy" phrase. So true, so true...sometimes I need brain candy. Can I snag that phrase from you? I will keep your last line in mind when I do finally read this not take it seriously, and then it will be enjoyable.

  3. ibeeeg - sure you can snatch brain candy :)
