Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Hamptons resident Jerome (a pseudonym for romance author Barbara Metzger) keeps things close to home in her low-key third Willow Tate urban fantasy (after May 2011’s Night Mares in the Hamptons). This time around, affably self-absorbed graphic novelist and Visualizer Tate accidentally unleashes a horde of extradimensional lightning bugs on the sleepy town of Paumanok Harbor. Unfortunately, these fireflies start fires, which brings a slew of problems to Willow’s door. After the first mishap, Willow mostly stands around while things happen to her: her angry neighbors worry about Paumanok being outed as a town of psychics; a hunky fireman who extinguishes flames with his mind offers to warm her bed; and a fire-breathing baby gets dropped in her lap. Some nice plot twists and turns do little to make up for the passive protagonist, confusing action sequences, and anticlimactic ending. (Nov.)
Library Journal
Graphic artist Willow Tate's creative ideas have a habit of attracting magical creatures to the unusual town of Paumanok Harbor in the Hamptons. The third outing, following Trolls in the Hamptons and Night Mares in the Hamptons, features literal fireflies, a fire-breathing tot, a fire mage, and an all-too-ordinary arsonist.

Willow Tate has the unique ability as a Visualizer to draw essences from the Faerie realm into out world. However the graphic novelist has a tendency to get so involved in herself and her work, Willow forgets the byproduct consequences of what she can do (see Trolls in the Hamptons and Night Mares in the Hamptons). Her current novel stars a fire wizard, which means the residents of Paumanok Harbor must contend with serial arson caused by lightning bugs from beyond. Willow's neighbors want to burn her at the stake for what she has caused and its consequence of potentially revealing the town make up not found in any census. She also deals with a fire baby dumped on her and a psychic firefighter who wants to heat her body with his; as she muses just another few days on the Hamptons. Although the heroine is too mellow with all the Fire Works in the Hamptons that threaten the South Fork, readers will enjoy the third island fantasy of the Visualizer whose drawings cause havoc. The story line is fast-paced and filled with twists as the locals deal with Willow's latest mass destruction "creation". Harriet Klausner
