Tammy Jo Trask comes from a long line
of witches. Too bad the ability seems to have skipped a
generation. Tammy Jo’s attempts at magic usually end in
disaster, or at least a scorched yard and herb garden. But
when the locket containing the family ghost is stolen she
goes on the hunt, and uses a little magic in the process.
The locket is stolen in the midst of a
crime spree in the small town of Duvall, Texas and the theft
sets off a chain reaction of events that show Tammy Jo
there’s more to life than meets the eye. It attracts the
attention of Deputy Zach Sutton, Tammy Jo’s ex-husband whom
she has an on-off relationship that is currently in the on
It also attracts the attention of Bryn Lyons, an uber-sexy
wizard that wants Tammy Jo for himself. The problem with
that is Tammy Jo received a list from her family of things
to avoid in life, and that list includes avoiding anyone
As the hunt for the locket continues Tammy Jo finds herself
facing many challenges including the fact her magic may not
be as dormant as it may seem. Now if she can just come out
of this adventure alive, things will be terrific.
Would-Be Witch is the first book in the new
Southern Witches series by Kimberly Frost and I have to say
it left me wanting more. I adored Tammy Jo’s plucky
behavior, from the first page where she doesn’t back down
from her rival to the last, where she stands up for herself
Watching her interact with Zach was tender and I could see
the love/hate relationship between them and understand its
nuances. And the addition of sexy Bryn just made things
hotter. The world in which our three main characters live is
fun and full of interesting beings.
This tale was nonstop, from the first page to the last and
when I was done I found myself pining to see what came next.
That makes Would-Be Witch a definite
Recommended Read for me.
Ms. Frost has penned the start of an interesting new series
that is sure to win her many fans.
