Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: Suddenly Sorceress, The Ivie McKie Chronicles Book 1
Author: Erica Lucke Dean
Publisher: Red Adept Publishing
Date of Publication: December 20th, 2013
I read a friendly reviewer’s comments on this book and, as we have a tendency to read the same novels and rate them almost the same most of the time, she made this seem so appealing I knew I just had to read it myself – and I’m so glad I did!
The scene with the goat at the farm will live in my memory for a long time as will so many other antics in this hilarious, laugh out loud, magical romance! Just imagine you’re a quiet, unassuming, kindergarten teacher but when you got so cross with your boyfriend breaking up with you that you mysteriously managed to magically morph him into a horrendously smelly skunk! You can’t let him go off into nature, you need to change him back – but don’t know how you changed him in the first place! The resulting escapades will have you giggling your way through the story as Ivie tries to work out how she’s changed her ex with the help of friends old and new whilst the police investigate his possible murder – with Ivie as the number one suspect!
This is one of the funniest, comical, paranormal romances I have ever read. This story has so many crazy situations and her ex is sure paid back by her actions! This is the first novel by this author that I’ve read and I’ll certainly be looking out for others by her in future. With great characters, plenty of humour and magic, I have no hesitation in highly recommending this to anyone who enjoys light hearted, hilarious, paranormal chick lits – what a winning combination!
PMS can be a real witch.
Ivie McKie isn’t your run-of-the-mill kindergarten teacher. After an encounter with a horny goat, Ivie has a confrontation with her lying, cheating fiancé. She is shocked when the big jerk suddenly transforms into a skunk—the black and white furry variety.
Enlisting the help of her shopaholic friend Chloe and sexy club magician Jackson Blake, Ivie is forced to play a literal game of cat and mouse as she races against the clock to change her ex back before she’s arrested for his murder.
With every new spell, a fresh wave of sexual desire draws Jack further into Ivie’s troubles, along with her panties, the car, the kitchen, and assorted seedy bathrooms.
Ivie soon discovers what every witch worth her spell book knows: There’s nothing worse than a bad case of Post Magical Syndrome.
