What's a Witch to Do? by Jennifer Harlow


What's a Witch to Do?
 
Summary:
 
A suspenseful brew with a dash of passion

High Priestess might sound like an ’80s hair band, but its Mona McGregor’s life. She runs the Midnight Magic shop in Goodnight, Virginia, and leads a large coven. She’s also raising two nieces and hasn’t been with a man for fifteen years…until a handsome doctor takes an interest in her. But Mona’s life really heats up when Adam Blue, a sexy werewolf, arrives at her door. Adam informs her that someone wants her dead and he is there to protect her. Hell’s bells! When a demon begins stalking her, Mona has to suspect her coven members, and even her family.

With two handsome men and a determined demon after her, Mona teams up with Adam to find out who really wants her dead . . . and who really wants her.

When I first requested this book I didn't know what to expect because I'd never heard of the author before and looking at the summary the book reminded me of the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris.
 
Thankfully, despite that fact What's a Witch To Do was much better than I expected. There was nothing that I didn't like about the book. I absolutely loved the plot. Finally someone has written a funny, witchy, paranormal mystery novel with a romantic twist that actually doesn't rely on old, overused clichés.
 
From the first page of the of What's a Witch To Do I was hooked and I read the book all in one shot it was that darn good folks. Mona, the high priestess of the coven in Goodnight, Virginia was a lovely heroine and one that varies from the stereotypical norm. Instead of the buxom supermodel figure that is often presented in this type of read. Instead we have a plus size heroine who is witty, charming and strong and completely lovable despite how hard some people put her down.
 
The rest of the cast of characters is just as eclectic as Mona. Young and old the book is full of vibrancy when it comes to the population of Goodnight. They're wacky and I absolutely loved them as their craziness helped push the book along.
 
The overall plot was also very good and the mystery aspect of the book was very well thought out and I kept me guessing. I was really surprised and pleased to find that the author put to much work into writing the mystery into the story because I've found that this genre can be pretty light on the actual mystery factor but there was enough twists and turns to keep me interested until the very end. Plus the romance in the book was just what I wanted. It wasn't the main focus of the book but neither was it swept to the wayside. It was just perfect.
 
Overall, I loved this book and ever since I finished it I've been recommending it to friends left and right. I hope this isn't the last we'll see of Mona and the witches coven in Goodnight and that Jennifer Harlow turns this into a series. Until then I'll just have to start reading her other series
 
I would recommend this book to everyone who is a fan of the paranormal romance and mystery novels that are set in a small town and love a quirky mixture of characters. Especially if you want to laugh your butt off.
