Melissa L. Webb was born in Visalia, California, in 1978. Her parents moved to Northern California three and a half years later.
Melissa joined police explorers, worked at Wal-Mart, and got engaged (and unengaged) all while in high school.
After high school, Melissa quit Wal-mart and decided to travel the country in a small van packed with one dog, one cat, and her best friend. After three weeks of seeing the real world, she decided to come back to Northern California and once again settle into a real job.
Since then, Melissa has been a supervisor at a grocery store and a home care giver. She's also become an ordained Cleric and has presided over two wedding ceremonies.
Melissa is still currently living between the ocean and the redwoods in Northern California, with her chihuahua, Buffy. She now spends her days tutoring students.
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.
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.
Great beginning for a new series. I am very excited for the next book and adventure of Maxie and her friends. This book kept my interest from beginning to end. Finished it in 2 days (I needed to sleep, lol)
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.Read more ›
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.
