Overview

Halloween LaVeau is descended from a long line of witches. Yes, her name is Halloween. The cosmic universe is definitely playing some kind of sick joke on her. She's the ultimate witch cliché, complete with a black cat and spooky house. Thank heavens she's missing the warts and flying broom.

When Halloween inherits her great-aunt's manor, she decides to put the house to good use as a bed-and-breakfast. Her first guest is the sinfully good-looking Nicolas Marcos, but he's not here for the continental breakfast. Halloween discovers a ratty old book in the attic. It's written in an unfamiliar language.

Halloween soon learns this is not an ordinary spellbook. The tome brings her a new talent, but her new skills come with a catch. When a rival witch comes after the book, Halloween doesn't know who to trust-the sexy vampire who says he wants to save the day, or the warlock who says he can destroy the book once and for all.

I liked the book alright but at the end there were 2 pages that just repeated and the book never ended just repeating pages. Also the book needs edited better, I am HORRIBLE at that stuff but there was a lot of places in the book that had the word "that" and it was suppose to be "them" as if someone just used spell check to make sure everything was spelled correctly. You can use common sense to know what word was meant to be there but it became annoying and slowed my reading down. Not a bad read really but again seems the editing stinks and maybe somewhere at the end something went wrong. That might be my nook app but it's never happened before.

urban-fantasy, witches, humor Read on September 27, 2016 If you like fluffy stories with witches, a vampire, and a warlock that has you rolling on floor laughing (or groaning), you'll love this book. Can't say much for the narrator, though.

I wanted to love this book since it’s about a woman who finds out she’s a witch, and of course not just any witch, but a powerful one. Plus she lives in a giant manor and her name is Halloween. How cool is that?!? But alas, I found it just so-so. My biggest complaint is the character development, or lack thereof. Halloween’s best friend, Annabelle, is scared of everything. Which gets really annoying fast. There is no way to develop her if she keeps needing to leave the scene because she is afraid of something. The two guys, Nicolas and Liam, keep insisting that they do not know each other, but they obviously do. Halloween, aka Hallie, acts completely oblivious to this fact, until very late in the book. To me, as a reader, this was not only irritating, but insulting. Instead of repeating over and over that the guys were hot, and having them disappear from the house, doing only the goddess knows what, tell us what they are up to or how they know each other. Their back story is essential to the story, and yet we get only a tiny bit towards the very end. And it wasn’t just the lack of character development, but just weird parts to the story. Hallie owns a bed and breakfast, but when Nicolas shows up in the middle of the night she freaks out. What?!? You want to have people showing up without prior reservations, that’s how you stay in business. This gives Annabelle another opportunity to be scared about strange (but hot, because we have to keep saying how hot they are) men showing up. Then there’s Hallie’s magic, which has been completely dismal up until she finds the book. Afterwards her magic is perfect, and yet she doesn’t even for a moment wonder why. It’s just like, “Oh, Hey. That’s cool.” While the premise could have made this book great, the repetition, strange story quirks and non-development of characters left me with no desire to read any more books by Rose Pressey.

Born on Halloween and named Halloween, plus she’s also a witch—this character’s interesting already. One night, she finds an odd magical book of mystery in the scary attic of her dead aunt’s mansion. Are ghosts living in the manor? I certainly wouldn’t put it past it. Suddenly, two handsome strangers appear at her front door. Who are they and why are they here? And why, for the love of god, do they hate each other? A mystical mystery surrounds the plucky, quirky witch that can never do magic right. What do you expect when in high school you were named most likely to cause a disaster? Still, her witty naiveté is a charm. Overall, this was a cool, bewitching read. I enjoyed trying to figure out the true motives behind the two men and the whole queen-of-the-underworld notion. Story was spellbinding up until 90% into the book when, at that point, the plot started to lose its pizzazz. The ending that finally presented the official showdown with Mara, the evil witch, was very anticlimactic. Still, I love witch stories, and this was a pretty good one.

I loved this book, as I love all of this author's books. The story is fun and leaves you guessing until the end. I'm not sure what people mean by the book kept repeating pages. I did not see that at all. Possibly a glitch in the download. I highly recommend anything by this author.

This was a fun and unique story. I enjoyed reading it. I feel that it could have gone deeper though. Throughout the whole thing I felt like just the surface was being scratched. I'm intrigued enough to check out the next books, but they won't necessarily be a priority.

The story was choppy and time lines didn't match up. Not my favorite.

CAUTION! IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS BOOK YET. CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN RISK! THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!! Once I picked up this book it was like a steam power boat for the rest of it. Basically what I mean is that once I picked up the book and started reading it was like being on fast forward as it was a fast paced book. Don’t get me wrong I loved this book because of that reason. Halloween, or Hallie as she tells everyone to call her that, is a witch living in Louisiana while trying to start a business on her own. She was fine with the way her life was before she found the book that was marked in her fate. She has no clue on what to do about the charming Liam or the mysterious Nicolas since she is attracted to the both of them and she has to choose which one she wants by her side. This book is a great read for anyone that is interested in adult romance and the supernatural aspect of it. I agree with my mom who said that Ms. Pressey has found her calling in writing these books.

This book was easy to read while still keeping your interest until the end.

I have such mixed emotions with this book. I like Hallie but at times I wanted to slap her and wake her up. She opens a bed and breakfast, she can't cook, she's afraid to open the door and takes no credit card info. She's told that her life is in danger but that doesn't scare her (I liked the show of backbone here). 2 guys who show up (who are gorgeous, and you will read that repeatedly), she suspects they know each other, she knows they're hiding things, instead of telling them cough up the info or get out, she just shrugs her shoulders and ignores it, if my life is at risk as they keep telling her, I think that I might be a little more demanding. When I read what they were hiding I thought "why?". Now on the good side, the whole storyline itself is great and the book keeps moving, I found the reason for why she was in danger interesting. There is some humor and as much as Hallie frustrated me sometimes I still liked her as a whole. I see a lot of potential growth for the characters, and I will try the next in the series to see how it develops.
