    Reviewed by Theresa L. Stowell for TeensReadToo

    When Jane Boyle falls in love with Malcolm Doran, she throws caution to the wind, quits her job, and plans to move to America from France to marry him. Her new life comes with some unexpected surprises, though. Malcolm's family is a bit strange, to say the least. His mother, however, seems thrilled to be gaining a daughter-in-law, and she eagerly pulls Jane into plans for one of the biggest society weddings of the year. Unfortunately, Jane's humble country background does not prepare her for life as a New York socialite. If living in a new country, with a new fiancé, and his very odd family is not enough, after finding her grandmother's dead body and a mysterious letter from that guardian, Jane has to come to terms with what the strange experiences she has had all her life really mean. She sees people that others don't; she hears voices that no one else does; she makes electronic devices go haywire. A letter from her grandmother states it simply: she is a witch. Jane does not have anyone to turn to for help, so when a young woman she meets at her new job befriends her, Jane is thrilled. But her adventures lead her to question the people she thought she could trust, and to wonder if marriage into the infamous Doran clan is the best idea. Pierce's first novel is a fun paranormal romp that introduces humorous questions about who really runs New York's high society - and what the phrase "My mother-in-law is a witch" means when it's true! Readers will not only enjoy meeting Jane and her new friends, but they will look forward to the next book in the author's debut series. *Note: Due to graphic sexual scenes and situations, this title is recommended for older and more mature readers.

    One of those non-daunting books

    This book just felt like it went absolutely no where and had no point what-so-ever. The threat of her fiance's family felt weak and boring. The witch aspects were boring and uneventful and it just took forever to get along with things. Did not like this one. Sorry.

    A Great Read!

    WOW! I loved this book...a page turner! A lovable main character, a "B" of a villian [yes she is a witch], and a handsome prince. Great love-making, fantasic reference to fashion and all the "rich people" items. It was a love/paranormal/mystery story that read way to quick. I have already reserved my copy of the second book! Can't wait to get my hands on it!!! Thank you Pierce!

    Clever & witty!

    666 PARK AVENUE, by Gabriella Pierce, is a surprising and satisfying novel. After reading it, I still find it hard to put into one genre. There was the obvious supernatural element of the witches, but some of it read closer to a chick-lit. And other times it read like a suspenseful mystery. Either way, I had a blast reading it and I highly (highly!) recommend it.

    Jane Boyle is my hero. She is strong, intelligent, and clever. Her relationship with Malcolm is like a fairy-tale. He is handsome, rich, successful, and madly in love with Jane (as she is with him). And I have to say their bedroom escapades were definitely hot and steamy! And if there ever was a witch with a capital 'B' it is Jane's future mother-in-law, Lynne. I got the creeps anytime she stepped onto the pages. But if anyone could handle that woman, it was Jane.

    I really enjoyed the process that Jane used to practice and perfect her powers. I felt bad for Jane at times because she was technically an orphan. Her likable personality afforded her new friends who worked hard to get Jane prepared for whatever Lynne had up her sleeve.

    Pierce truly created a wonderful story. There were twists and turns throughout the book that always kept me guessing. I am excited to read the next book to see where Pierce takes the lovely Jane!

    A cover note: For as simple as the cover is, I think it is gorgeous. The color scheme makes me think of Halloween (i.e. witches) and the tree leaves forming bats is a creative addition.
