WITCH UPON A STAR, the third book in the Midnight Magic Mystery series, is really tough for me to write a review for. I have seriously conflicting feelings about the events of the book and while it was not poorly written, I think the content is a bit off-putting and not what one would expect from this author.
Author: Jennifer Harlow
Full of action, a captivating couple, and some very mean vampyres, VERITY HART VS THE VAMPYRES was everything I wished for and more. Harlow completely brought her A-game for this one, and it shows in how much fun to read this book is. When I finished it, I had a moment of “is it possible for a book to be too good?”
While serving up her usual mystery, romance and humor, Harlow’s second Midnight Magic Mystery, WEREWOLF SINGS THE BLUES, failed to live up to my (admittedly high) expectations. I loved WHAT’S A WITCH TO DO, and was hoping for more of the same here. Unfortunately, Vivian was a hard character for me to like, and I couldn’t get into the developing relationship, making it hard to enjoy the book.
2013 will go down as the year that I discovered Jennifer Harlow. I have devoured everything she’s written so far – three F.R.E.A.K.S. books, the Midnight Magic book, and both books published so far in the Galilee Falls trilogy. This is to say, I may be a bit of a fangirl. However, I do think it’s deserved. With GALILEE RISING, Harlow steps up the game a bit. Whereas her other books are a bit more lighthearted, the Galilee Falls trilogy has a darker, more sinister bent, a more damaged heroine, and no vampires, witches, or werewolves in sight.
DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY has mayhem, humor, and a psychokinetic heroine, which was enough to keep me hooked- I read it all in one sitting! DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY is a bit goofy, and as such, has a mystery and lots of action without taking itself too seriously.
WHAT’S A WITCH TO DO? is a fun paranormal mystery with a lot of humor and a steamy romance. The mystery of who wants Mona dead was well plotted and I had fun analyzing everyone’s motives along with Mona. I liked the small town of Goodnight
