This is my first time reading Kune's work but it definitely won't be the last! I am constantly on the look out for cozy mysteries that enchanting combine mystery, a paranormal element, humor, romance and my favorite "tasty bits" or as other would call it sex scenes. Now don't get you knickers in a bunch there are no sexually graphic or gratidious sex scenes in this book. The couple of sex scenes that are included are described rather abstractly. Personally I would have preferred a lot more details but understand that the author played it middle of the road so as not to offend those readers who are always complaining about "soft porn." So for the latter I will repeat there is no soft porn in this book! Nevertheless, they will still be some readers who will complain that there shouldn't be any love scenes whatsoever. To that group I say "GO READ SOMEHTING ELSE AND STOP YOUR WHINING" In the naural order of things romance includes 'sex." Besides there are far more cozy mysteries book out there that are sex free than there are that include some "tasty bits." Let the rest of us have a few book!!!!!!!!

Anyway, the book was wonderful. I adored the homage and references to the Bewitched series without duplicating it in the story. I really liked Cassie, Mitch, Endora and Medusa. I am glad that the author did not spin the story to include Medusa disliking Mitch. That would have been trite. There's just enough action to balance thing out but I liked that the sory focused more on the romance.

I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy a delightful Romance with mystery, magic, action, humor and "tasty bits."
Buy it, Read it; Enjoy!!!

What do you get when you combine Bewitched with Stephen King? Or Bell, Book & Candle with James Patterson? You get Laurie Kuna's wonderful book, SOME PRACTICAL MAGIC. This tale of love between a real live witch and a horror writer skillfully blends romance, humor, witchcraft and suspense. In addition to a likable heroine and a hunky hero, Ms Kuna creates truly exceptional secondary characters. I hope she's busy writing Endora's (the heroine's feline familiar) story.

Format: Paperback
Cassandra Hathorne is an author of 'KITCHEN WITCH' syndicated news column and Books and M. S. Kazimer is a mystery/horror writer who sits next to her during a book signing tour as seating is alphabetical. Although he looks good for a guy of 40, he is also mortal and she is a witch who at 90 is barely middle aged. Unknown to her, Mick has been a fan of her writing and is looking forward to meeting her.

The FBI discovers there is a serial killer copycatting Kazimer's book plots who is now stalking the tour. They plan a trap which backfires and will lead to both authors' deaths without the aid of magic and love.

SOME PRACTICAL MAGIC is a suspenseful but humorous witch story with 'shades' of the BEWITCHED TV sitcom to add to reading pleasure. The look at the serial killer is vivid but not overwhelming which I appreciated as this is a romance rather than horror. The secondary 'witchy' characters add spice and humor to lighten the serious side

of the story. Medusa, Cassie's match-making mother 'pops in'

occasionally with friends and advice. Endora, the cat familiar is never short on advice and also works as Cassie's publicist on the tour.

Besides looking out for a serial killer, the main characters are looking within at relationships and what they will do with their life after the tour. Although expressed typically, the serious aspects are not overwhelmed by the humor. I would recommend this book to anyone wishing a satisfying romantic adventure.

Fans of "Bewitched" will love the trip down memory lane with Kuna's witty modern day make-over of the classic TV sitcom, with a great mystery thrown in. Independent Cassie is a far stretch from housewife Samantha and snippets of the television cast are created into shiny new characters by the author's crisp, easy style. After finishing Some Practical Magic, I wished I had a 'familiar' as saucy as Endora!

Cassandra Hathorne is a 90 year old witch; witches don't age at the same rate as humans, however, so she looks significantly younger to human Mirek "Mick" Sandor, aka horror writer M.S. Kazimer. Mick and Cassie meet on a book signing tour, although Cassie is unaware that the tour has been arranged by the FBI. A serial killer has focused on Mick's books for his pattern to killing and Mick and the FBI are trying to stop him. Mick has decided to quit writing horror after this tour and once the serial killer finds out, all plans go awry. This book has great quirky characters in it, as Cassie's familiar is Endora Bast, a shapeshifing cat who can pass as a human (and wouldn't you know that Mick is allergic to cats?). Cassie's mom, Medusa, tries to matchmake Cassie throughout the book and ultimately helps Cassie and Mick with the killer. This was a fun read that definitely kept me smiling. I will most definitely read the next book, which is Endora's story.
