Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

When she isn't getting into trouble with her oddball companions—a vicious pair of bunny slippers and a frustrated ghost who haunts her sports car—hot-tempered witch Jazz Tremaine earns money lifting hexes and driving limos for Southern California's All Creatures Limo Service. When the vampire cop she's loved and hated for centuries, Nikolai Gregorivich, seeks her help in catching a serial vampire slayer, Jazz fends him off to focus on her own problems (the sleazeball limo service owner; a client who generates supernaturally disgusting odors). She can't resist her sexy vamp lover for long, though, especially as clues in the killings point to an evil figure from her past. With clever writing, a high sensuality factor and an unfettered imagination, Wisdom makes a sparkling entry into lite urban paranormals. (Mar.)

By Yasmine F. Galenorn on February 23, 2008
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was lucky--I got to read the book before it hit the shelves, and I loved it. Jazz is a heroine who is quirky, fun, and just warped enough to love--and her world is filled with fascinating creatures, bunny slippers who'd give the vorpal rabbit a run for his money, and one sexy, hot vampire love interest. The story holds up, the pace is quick and breezy, and I didn't put it down till I finished it.

I can hardly wait for Linda's next book. If you love paranormal romance with a slightly twisted sense of humor (that only adds to the charm of the characters), then this is the book for you! (I recommend this book especially to fans who also love the works of MaryJanice Davidson, Annette Blair, Candace Havens, Charlaine Harris, and other light-hearted, enchanting paranormal romances).

STORY BRIEF:
Witches, vampires, werewolves, trolls, and other creatures live among humans. Jazz is a witch. She makes a living removing curses and driving a limo. Nick is a vampire who works as a private investigator. Nick and Jazz have had a lustful on and off relationship for about 300 years - mostly off. She frequently gets mad at him. Someone is killing vampires, and Nick wants Jazz to help him solve the problem.

REVIEWER'S OPINION:
It took a long time to get going. I was impatient for something to start happening. Nick visited Jazz several times asking for her help. But things kept delaying any action. Jazz had to do this, she had to do that, she kept telling Nick to come back later. This was going on for more than half the book. Finally they started to do something about the killer. Overall it was ok, just not a must read. Don't expect much relationship development between Jazz and Nick. They knew each other in the past and broke up before this story even started. This is more of a lustful coworker relationship than romance. I had a problem with the title. She was not hexing her lover in different ways. She threw fireballs at him once and missed. That was it. Jazz was an interesting character, but Nick and Krebs could have used something more.

The best parts were the fun and interesting side characters. I loved Fluff and Puff - the bunny slippers with sharp teeth and short tempers. Jazz would keep them in line by lifting her foot. They were afraid of heights.

CAUTION SPOILER:
The ending scene with bad guy Clive could have been better. Jazz and Nick are chained and powerless with Clive standing over them doing harm. Yet Jazz and Nick keep telling Clive they're going to kill him.

I enjoy the vampire books of Charlaine Harris and MaryJanice Davidson so this book was just the way I like my paranormal books -- offbeat and funny. The characters of Jazz and Nickolai were interesting and likeable but the secondary characters really made the book interesting. Irma, the cranky 1950s era chain-smoking ghost stuck in Jazz's vintage car grew on me over the course of the book as did Jazz's mortal roommate.

The author found a way to make the presence of witches, vampires, bloody-thirsty bunny slippers and various other non-human life forms seem almost normal.

I look forward to reading the next Jazz book.

I absolutely love this book. I'm a very picky reader and have often started books, skipped to the end and tossed them. Not with this one. I was hooked from page one. I wanted to take Nikolai home and make him my own personal vampirer. And Norma, the chain-smoking ghost, is hysterical. This book is funny, romantic, suspenseful and well-written. If you want to read a book that will capture your attention and imagination -and then want to read it all over again, this is the book for you. I highly recommend it.

To be honest, I picked up this book because of the live bunny slippers. Who talked to each other, and destroy things. Won't that make you look twice at this book? But Ms. Wisdom made a believer out of me with the love/hate relationship between the witch and the vampire. Jazz, Nick, Irma (the ghost inhabiting Jazz's car) and her fellow witches were entertaining from start to finish. The second book in the series is slated to be released in November. I will be there at the bookstore for my copy, I hope you will be there too.

This was a wonderful read, I had a hard time putting it down. Jazz is a wonderful character w/lots of spunk. Fluff and Puff are two of my favorite characters... I mean killer bunny slippers how can you go wrong!?!? Oh and don't forget about Irma the ghost who haunts Jazz's Car. She is also a great character. I fell in love w/all of them and can't wait for more about Jazz. Thanks Linda Wisdom! This was such an engrossing story that my friend's 13 year old daughter ignored her Nintento DS for 3 days straight to read it... now that's some powerful storytelling!

I downloaded this when it was free for Kindle, I ended up deleting it before finishing. As another reviewer mentioned, it took way too long for anything to happen. The story was full of interesting characters, which kept me plodding along. Tons of potential here, but not enough story.
