Book Description

It's Not The Great Pumpkin, Maxie Duncan (Maxie Duncan, Book 1.5), a Halloween novelette, is out now!


Sometimes life can be a real witch.

Meet Maxie Duncan. Your average 23-year-old blonde. If you can call being wealthy, gorgeous, and knowing what the future holds at times, average.

After her fiancé blindsides her with a breakup at their favorite restaurant, she leaves Maine for a shot at being Hollywood’s new ‘it girl.’ There’s only one problem. She’s never acted a day in her life.

When a big Hollywood director sends her packing, she realizes if she wants to stay in L.A., she may have to become a normal girl after all. But normal has never been in the cards for her. Strange things keep happening wherever she goes, a red-eyed shadow no one else sees is stalking her, and to top it off, she may be falling in love again, with either the bookish guy next door, or Hollywood’s hottest leading man.

But everything isn’t what it seems. Someone’s keeping secrets from her. Is it her new friends at the apartment building she moved into? Or is it Ryan Everheart, the actor who wants to sweep her off her feet? And why are her feet suddenly floating off the ground?

It’s enough to drive a girl insane. All Maxie wants to do is ride off into the sunset with her one true love and find a killer pair of Manolo Blahniks on the way. But how’s a girl supposed to focus on a love life and shopping when everywhere she turns someone or something is trying to kill her?

3.0 out of 5 stars cute book - had potential November 12, 2012
this was a cute book. quick and easy to read. there were quite a few grammar issues and i caught myself re-reading some lines because things were not always described very well and it got a little confusing at times. if more time and energy had been put into the story and characters (and editing) it could have been much better.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Ok Paranormal February 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Maxie Duncan is the typical poor-little-rich-girl. She gets dumped by her fiance for another woman. Knows how to do nothing but be arm candy, so she decides to run off to Hollywood to be an actress. Once she's there she believes she'll take the city by storm but she's really just another face in the crowd. She blows her first audition & instead of figuring out what to do to learn how to act, she has a meltdown in the hotel hallway.

This is where she meets her new BFF Evangaline. Van takes her home to be her new roomie. Maxie tries (and spectacularly) fails at her first 2 attempts at regular jobs. Most likely because she again has no clue what she's doing. But Van believes she'd be perfect working at the hotel. So she goes to work for Van where she meets movie star Ryan Everhart, who promptly asks her out. She's starstruck & immediately accepts even though she's made plans with Van's boyfriend's bestie. All three of her new friends try to warn her away from Ryan, but none of them give her any concrete details. Wham, bam. Instant love for Ryan & Maxie.

Then strange things start happening. Maxie starts to be attacked by strange people. And other strange things happen as well. Then she discovers she's a witch. And Ryan's a vampire. And Ryan's family wants to use her in a vampire power play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maxie is a special kind of witch May 7, 2013
By K.Dunst
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rich and spoiled, but sweet and naive sums up Maxie Duncan nicely. She isn't ashamed of being who she is, and acknowledges her faults, but she wants to be something more than a rich man's wife. Little does she know just how much more she really is. I love other books from Melissa Webb, and the Maxie Duncan series doesn't disappoint.

This book is exactly what it promises. How can you go wrong with that! It is well written, and done with more than a bit of humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute paranormal romance October 12, 2012
By Mandy
I received this book as part of the Bewitching Book Tours in return for a honest review. Maxine is all set to marry her high school sweetheart when he sends her a text asking her to show up at their place, which she expects to be good new since it's the place he proposed, she never expected him to break up with her. After her fiance breaks up with Maxine she decides just like that it's time to move to L.A. to become a actress.

Maxine isn't prepared for what it takes to be a actress at her first audition she doesn't bring her head shot (photo) or a resume and her acting doesn't dazzle them. Even though it didn't go as planned after a little pep talk Maxie decides to stay in L.A. she even moves into a apartment called Enchantment Cove. Maxie even get's a job, and is amazed when she makes it the first four hours. At her job she meets her crush Ryan Everheart who happens to be working on the movie she tried out for. As if fate had a hand Ryan is head over heels for Maxie putting her on cloud nine but something strange is going on she just can't put her finger on it. Her new L.A. friends don't want her spending time with Ryan but she's to head over heels for Ryan to listen. Then she's attacked by a stranger with large front teeth in the elevator and saved by a shadow creature. After being rescued by her friends after found bleeding in the elevator the truth comes out changing her life forever. It's a whirl wind adventure full enough to keep Maxie busy and she just needs to stay alive.

I really enjoyed reading Bell, Book, and Sandals it's a entertaining read. Maxie has such a great personality reminds myself a lot of me in the emotional aspect since I'm not blonde or rich. The book delves right in drawing the read and not letting go till the end.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth your time. September 30, 2012
By Giasa
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The characters in this book are poorly developed, wooden, and unrealistic. There were several times, when I went back a page to see, if I had missed something. The story makes no sense and has no flow. That is pretty hard to do, when writing about other-worldly characters. If I would not know better, I would have thought, it was written by a tenth grader in high school.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Characters February 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I'll admit that I just wanted to smack Maxie to begin with. She was your typical shallow, rich girl who had no idea what real life was all about. HOWEVER, after finishing the book, I realize that the author did this on purpose. Watching Maxie grow into a caring, down to earth (or at least closer to earth) girl was part of why this book was so wonderful. I couldn't help but love this book, Melissa L. Webb has created some awesome characters and a wonderful beginning to a series that I can't wait to read more of. I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves urban fantasies.
