Editorial Reviews

Review

2011 Best Read, Wickedly Bookish Awards. "This indie gem stole my heart with its fun humor, endearing characters, and thrilling moments. The transition from funny to chilling was at times immediate, combining these two elements very enjoyably." -- Wickedly Bookish

2012 Silken Sands (RWA) Star Contest, Reader's Choice Award -- 2nd Place, Paranormal

"An entertaining, supernaturally infused chick-lit tale." -- Kirkus Reviews

"What a fun book. I fell asleep reading it and in the morning, I stayed in bed to finish it." -- 2012 Writers Digest Self-Published Book Awards, Finals Judge

From the Author

This book was a lot of fun to write. And yes, there will be more books about Mara, Gus and Lord Grundleshanks the poisonous toad!

Note: This book contains witchcraft, language and adult situations. Please do not give it to children to read.

For Wiccan readers, who are curious about the quarter system used in the book, this story uses the Northern Quarter system which is based in Traditional Witchcraft, rather than the Golden Dawn Quarter system, which is more widely used in Wicca.

How does one even begin? So very well written! I enjoyed every moment of it, even when things got a little dicey towards the end. Just as everything in our heroine's LA life is closing in around her, a gift from the grave comes to her rescue...or does it? Our poor heroine is so very haunted that she can't tell from one moment to the next what is real.

A real page turner right to the very end. A lot of witchcraft, a lot of humor, a really great set of characters...and Christiana Miller is off to the races. Oh, and don't forget Aunt Tillie! She's a pistol.

This is such a great fun read. It has a little of it all. It has magic and mystery. Mayhem and humor. A little bit of dark magic, a little bit of light magic. Ghosts and demons. Big city, small town. Witty best friend, death and destruction. Love interests and did I mention magical toads?

Okay, so you sort of get the idea, this book will appeal to just about everyone and has just about everything you could ask for in a great paranormal read.

A great heroine, Mara, who is no push over and knows how to take charge and get the job done and while she isn't perfect and is still learning about who she is and what she can do, she didn't run away from her troubles. Instead she faced them on head first and did what needed to be done.

I loved the humor and just the all around witchiness (totally made up that word) of it all.

And then we have Gus. Ah Gus. How to describe thee. Actually, I can't describe him other than to say he is the kind of friend that you would want in a crisis. The kind that is loyal, funny and always has your back.

I really hope that there will be a second book out soon because I definitely plan on reading it. I want more adventures with Mara and Gus and I want to know more about what becomes of them and the new life they took on and what more is in store for them.

So in short, if you want a great indie paranormal adult read that will keep you turning the pages and guessing what will happen next, then pick up this book and give it a read.

As the title said, enjoyable lightweight chick lit. Author is excellent at dialogue. Sometimes the motivations for actions on Mara's part are pretty skimpy--she feels a heavy foreboding, evening is turning dark into nightfall; scary woods--but she just can't resist going forward instead of sensibly going home and waiting for daylight. Hangs around the village looking at the shops, goes to the cottage at sunset, when it's becoming dark and scary. That sort of thing. A little contrived, if you ask me.

I loved the back-and-forth with Gus, though it got a bit heavy handed at times. I wanted to ask, don't you ever respond except in a smart ass sarcastic mode? Enough, already.

Good plot, satisfying ending. "Toad Witch Series" but the toad wasn't that interesting, important only marginally. But then how do you make a toad into a brilliant conversationalist or a key character? I didn't think the title was particularly appropriate.

Loved the book. It has everything in it. I want more. The story was well written, I don't like frogs,toads but I loved the toad in the story. The best friend is the best, we all want a Gus in our life. Loved the cottage. A must read

***This review originally appeared in my Romantic Geek Girl blog***

"At the beginning of this whole, surreal journey, I had no idea you could be evicted from your body as easily as you could be booted out of your apartment."

&

"One of the problems with being a witch is when you ask the universe a question, it generally gives you an answer. Or at least enough of one to ruin a perfectly good week."

And thus with not one but with two killer opening lines, Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie She's Dead begins.

Writing a line like that - let alone two lines - takes skill and craftsmanship. With much anticipation, I began reading.

Mara is a witch living in Los Angeles. She's a witch, but she's very leery of magic for many a reason, and she tries to keep it to the smaller stuff that can't come back to bite her.

Around her 27th birthday, she's about to get kicked out of her apartment by her fundamentalist Christian landlady.

So she worries over it and talks smarty-pants with her gay best friend and fellow magic user,Gus.

And then Gus talks her doing some magic against her will.

And then something bad happens, and she has bad dreams and bad feelings about what is about to come, especially since *dum dum dum* her mother died at the age of 27.

And then she frets and talks smarty-pants with Gus.

Then the landlady comes back to reiterate witches are evil and she's still evicted.

And then Gus reassures her, and talks her into doing magic against her will.

And keep going like that through the first half of the book.

Let me stop here for a bit.

The only reason I even gave this book two stars is because occasionally I would find myself laughing over something her friend Gus said. I kept reading this book hoping it would get better, but it never did. I am shocked that people gave this 5 stars. Also, the subtitle for the book is the Toad Witch Series. How is this the Toad Witch series? She took the toad with her on her trip, but it pretty much sat in it's cage throughout the entire book. Also it states that toad was magical. Where was the magical toad? She hallucinated that she heard the toad talk in her head...and that was the only thing magical about the toad. I am sorry, but this book was a waste of time to read. All I can say is that I am never trusting some of these reviews again.
