Format: Paperback
Tammy Jo Trask has gotten herself into trouble again. It's not really her fault that she and the darkly handsome wizard Bryn Lyons had to whip up some magic between them recently to save her hometown of Duvall, Texas. Unfortunately, Bryn is forbidden to mix his magic with hers until she's properly trained. So leaders of WAM, the World Association of Magic, are on their way to investigate the two.

Bryn works with her on evasion tactics to dodge WAM's questions, but he's a slick attorney. She's just a small-town pastry chef, with magical powers that are a bit out of kilter and that sometimes go awry. She finds her best defense is honesty.

In the mean time, a few over-zealous locals think Tammy's magic must come from Satan. That's just silly, of course, but they intervene, thinking to drive the Bad Guy from her. Their shenanigans are a constant source of irritation when Tammy's got better things to tend to.

On top of everything else, someone - she doesn't know who - mailed her a strange piece of jewelry. She's got some connection to it though, because visions from it haunt her. There's a young woman Tammy must save from... well, she's not sure what, but definitely something.

So there's plenty going on in her life by the time the three top-level representatives of WAM show up. The entourage consists of its powerful president Barrett, the impressive and deadly operative Winterhawk, and the perfectly coifed and manicured Gwen. Hmph. Who better to interrogate Bryn than his lovely ex-girlfriend?

But as usual in Tammy Jo's world, things get out of hand. Before you know it, some really strange and unnatural disasters ensue. Her best friend Mercutio, who's a good-sized ocelot kitty, tries to keep her out of trouble, but it's no small task.

Halfway Hexed by Kimberly Frost

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I kind of don't like that in all three books only about two weeks has passed which is such a short time for three books. But like me if you have been a fan of the other two books this one will not make you want to stop and the Ending will make you BEG for more!!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on February 5, 2011
Format: Paperback
Though a relatively new witch twenty something Tammy Jo Trask is a veteran of war having battled an assortment of predatory paranormal and insane humans (see Barely Bewitched and Would-Be Witched), but this battle is different. The Duval, Texas townsfolk led by Bryn Lyons' former girlfriend want to sweep away all the witches.

Tammy Jo is caught in the middle as she must decide what to do about Bryn. She knows what he wants to know. Tammy Jo has concealed what happened to his mother ages ago. However, Tammy Jo hesitates revealing what she knows to her beloved as she considers her family warning her to have nothing to do with Bryn. If each risks trusting the other's love, their combined magical power turns stratospheric.

The latest Southern Witch Texas fantasy is faster than the speed of light and loaded with an incredible amount of action that the audience has no chance to breathe and read at the same. The story line moves forward on the romantic subplot while a Texas two step witch hunt is done in earnest.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Halfway Hexed (2011) is the third urban Fantasy novel in the Southern Witch series, following Barely Bewitched. The initial volume in this sequence is Would-Be Witch.

In the previous volume, Tammy was planning to burglarize Jenna's house to get the jewelry back. Edie promised to be the lookout. Then Jordan knocked on Tammy's door.

He presented her with a sealed parchment from WAM. He and Incendio would instruct Tammy in the magic necessary to pass the Initial Challenge. If Tammy did not pass the exam or refused to take it, she was likely to be killed.

After Tammy slammed the door in Jordan's face, she returned to making pastries for her former boss. Then she heard a knock on her door. She thought it was Jordan again, but Bryn stood on her doorstep.

He said hello to Mercutio. He had come by to ask her for a favor. Mr. Jenson wanted her to prepare pastries for a party. Tammy said she would think about it.

In this novel, Tamara Josephine Trask is the daughter of a witch family. Her mother and aunt have been out of town for a while. Meanwhile, Tammy Jo wishes that she had magical talents.

Jenna Reitgarten is Tammy's worst enemy. They have despised each other since elementary school.

Edie is the ghost of Tammy's great-great-grand aunt. She was the twin of Lenore, a witch of prophecy. Edie dwells in the locket that Tammy always wears.

Zackary Taylor Sutton is Tammy's ex-husband. She divorced Zack, but still loves him.

Halfway Hexed by Kimberly Frost
Paranormal Romance -Feb 1st, 2011
4 ½ stars

Halfway Hexed is the third installment in Kimberly Frost's South Witch series. This third book should not be missed, especially if you are a fan. Because the author answers many questions and reveals more about Tammy Jo and her outrageous family that have been culminating since the first novel. (This may contain a couple of spoilers- but they are really vague or refer to things already mentioned in the second book.)

Tammy Jo has decided to start seriously using her magic. But because she is half Fae and half witch her magic doesn't always work as expected. However, her use of magic has made her a target as she is kidnapped twice in one day! Thankfully Tammy Jo is able to escape, but when she reports it to the local sheriff's office they don't believe her story. In addition, her `illegal' use of magic is worrying the World Assoc. of Magic (WAM) - and she and the wizard Bryn Lyons (who has helped her and really, really likes her) have been put on trial. According to the WAM if she doesn't `shape up' she will be imprisoned or sentenced to death! No pressure. Except that some mysterious magical disasters are occurring in her beloved town, and the only way to combat is to use her own magic. But can a novice like Tammy Jo save the town when almost everyone seems against her?

Tammy Jo is full of charm and fire, as she is dropped into one outrageous mishap after another. I liked this book better than the second. This is because Tammy Jo starts to actively use her magic, which makes it more exciting. And also because it reveals answers about Tammy Jo's family and tells why she should not be connected with a Lyons.
