The book is a quirky mix of mystery, we have to investigate the missing mother and who might have wanted her gone; romance; and urban fantasy - magic plays a central role in the plot. That makes it hard to categorize, though the mystery element is undoubtedly the primary one.
I'd like to give it 5*s but it wasn't quite there - a couple of plot points seemed a bit contrived. However it was a great read and I want the sequel that I'm informed "Ellie's" muse is determined to dictate.
There is a bit of explicit content, so not appropriate for younger folks. It's really mild compared to pretty much any adult books. It would be appropriate for a mature teenager of 16+ or pretty much any adult looking for an easy read to loose yourself in.
This book is NOT that normal! Oh, dear Amazon-reading friends, be ye warned: there are WITCHES in this book! And haunted houses! (Well, not really HAUNTED, but....something.) And cops! And dogs! And children! And a fantastic diner, actually, where I would really like to be a breakfast and/or lunch regular. And kidnapping!
AND LOTSA HOT, STEAMY SEX BETWEEN CONSENTING ADULTS WHO SCREAM THEIR PASSION AT THE MOMENT IN WHICH THEIR EXPECTATIONS ARE SIMULTANEOUSLY FULFILLED!!!! Okay, that last bit was a lie. Actually, it's a couple of lies. Okay, there isn't a true word/phrase/context in the entire sentence. I heard somewhere that sex sells, though.
Quinn O'Donnell is a thirty-something (I think) DEA agent who was raised in Mossy Creek in a 'woo-woo' family (her words, not mine). By that, we mean her mama and sisters did somewhat magical things, along with select others in the community. Quinn had no manifestations of the power, so she always felt isolated and rejected by her family; the feelings were particularly aggravated by the fact that she didn't think her house liked her.
Mostly, saying that your house doesn't like you is either part of a stand-up comedy routine, or is grounds for seeking psychiatric intervention. It is literally true in this case, though. For reasons, the house Quinn was raised in is sentient, communicates with other members of her family, and has the ability to open or close gates, doors, windows, and that can really tick off a 14 year old girl, I would imagine. Try to sneak out? Nope, windows and doors locked. Try to steal beer from the fridge? Nope. I could go on and on, but if you just consider the privacy needs of a young lady growing up, you can imagine her resentment at a house that watches. Right?
So, as soon as she is able, Quinn leaves town. She becomes a DEA agent, marries a cop, gives birth to a daughter, and it's all going fairly well. However, when she discovers her husband is a dirtbag loser abusive cop, not a kind gentle nice cop, things start to go bad. She manages to mostly get him out of her life, and is putting things back together, when she discovers the presence of woo-woo in her five year old daughter, Ali.Wisely, she decides she needs to return home, where woo-woo is understood, because she has no idea how to help Ali make the adjustment, and stay out of trouble.
And the hits follow, pretty much in this order:
She discovers her mother has been kidnapped.
The house likes her now, and that's a clue that she is a woo-woo person as well.
The guy she had a crush on her whole life is the newly elected sheriff.
Two trained police dogs, Belgian Malinois (think brown German shepherds, and you'll have an idea) are delivered to her ownership.
So, for the rest of the book, the issues are: why has her mom been kidnapped; how is her relationship with the new sheriff going to work out; how is she going to deal with the emerging woo-woo in her life and that of her daughter?
I'll give you a hint: all of the fooling around takes place between her and the sheriff, and it's complicated.
Amanda pulls you into the story with action, and delivers more action, interspersed with a down-to-earth romance. She handles the parenting part very well, deftly weaving the child into the story without falling into the plot moppet trap. It’s a fun, light read, and perfect for a few hours of escapism to relax your mind before you have to come back to our mundane world.
