When I read this I was happily surprised it turned out to be something different than I expected. It was cute and funny and had the element of romace.

As always, VLT grabs you right from the beginning and takes you on a wild ride that's sooo exciting you never want to get off! I LOVE her Big Nob characters and can't wait to see how they overflow into the new series she's working.

Vicki Lewis Thompson makes me laugh. Her imaginative stories combine humor and romance in a way that always tickles my funny bone while I sigh in pleasure at the perfect happy ending for her pairs. "Casual Hex" is the third book in her 'Hex' series about a pair of magical matchmakers who've been banished to a small town in Indiana. They manage to find mischief and create mayhem while helping certain residents of the town find their perfect mate. It's even funnier when not all the residents are of the human variety! Gwen is a shy, quiet florist who has made a habit of blending in and behaving. After all, when you're one of the few single women in a small town, you have to watch out for your reputation. But recently shy, quiet Gwen has been having some seriously erotic dreams--and they all seem to star the same man. She really doesn't have time for this since her pen pal botanist from France is about to come to town specifically to check out Gwen's rare plant. Over the months of their correspondence Gwen feels they've gotten to know each other so well. OK, she has a crush on him. But a suave, continental guy like him could never be interested in a quiet shy girl like Gwen, right? Thompson's pacing was dead on in this story. Gwen doesn't become an instant sex kitten. Instead, with the help of friends and a teeny tiny bit of magic, she learns about her own beauty and her own power as a woman. I liked that the magic was about boosting Gwen's confidence vice changing her appearance. The growth came from inside and as many a man will tell you, "Confidence is sexy." And speaking of sexy...whoo, this story had some pretty hot sex! Between a fairy prince luring Gwen in her dreams, and a flesh and blood Frenchman sexing her up in reality...well, let's just say I'm jealous! This isn't a story that will have the reader searching their conscience or agonizing over life and death decisions or consequences. Instead this book is a breath of humorous air with a hefty helping of hot sexual tension. Just about perfect for a slow evening.

Matchmaking witches Dorcas and Ambrose know that Gwen Dubois and Marc Chevalier are soulmates. They plan to hook up the Indiana resident with the French botanist. All they have to do is get Marc to leave sunny France for wintry Big Knob, Indiana.

The way to his heart lies with tropical plants so the two witches cast a spell to have special equatorial flora in the icy cold Hoosier State. Marc crosses the pond to investigate, but is distracted when he meets Gwen. However, their perfect plan runs into a snag when Prince Leo of the Atwood fairy kingdom chooses Gwen to be his bride.

The latest trip to the eerie hex capital of the world, Big Knob, Indiana (see OVER-HEXED and WILD & HEXY) is an enjoyable lighthearted story as Dorcas and Ambrose work loving magic with the usual amusing side consequences; this time a royal hex of a mess. The lead human couple is a likable pairing. They get along from the onset with the strife coming from the pushy prince. Fans will enjoy this jocular jaunt as Dorcas provides the perspective to this romantic fantasy and the hexy saga with wisdom that Paris and Atwood are no Big Knob.
