Once Un-Removed? Oh I love it, I finally get to read about some of the Crawford Goode history in Lucky Valley! Always wondered what really happened to Marigold Crawford Goode in Lucky Valley. This is going to be the beginning of new great things in Lucky Valley, if the ghosts of the past let it happen. Lilly, Dante and Jessie did no have an easy life after their mom Marigold abandoned the on the steps of a firehouse at a very young age. Their memories of dear mom are not good at all. That's why when Aunt Polly calls them to come to Lucky Valley, Lilly and Dante are very suspicious of the reasons behind the inheritance that Marigold left them, nothing good ever came out of a Goode at least that's what the town residents say. But especially Unlucky Valley, those ghosts just won't stay buried and they say the Crawford Goode are to blame for that too. Lilly and Dante just can't believe they are witches, or that the Gnomes just appear out of nowhere, not to mention all the other crazy stuff that's happening at the mansion and let's not forget fruity Aunt Polly and Herman the pet lobster., The only thing good from all this, or is he good, is Nolan, but then again he has the Dawson Curse! Get ready to get a belly ache, it certainly had me in stitches.

I was so happy to see that Aunt Polly from Everlasting was in this book. She plays a big roll. Her Niece, several times removed, has inherited a house in (Un) lucky Valley. Lily and Dante grew up barely scraping by. They have no family and out of the blue inherit a big house, which needs a lot of work, and a lot of other stuff. Stuff like garden gnomes. Aunt Polly is so eccentric and full of magic. There is also the lovable lobster, Herman. Maybe Lily ad Dante finally have a forever home? But someone doesn’t like that they have moved in. They are trying their best to see that they leave. I love this author’s writing. It doesn’t seem to matter what genre she writes, she is always able to pull it off! If you like fun, quirky reads that are a mixture of paranormal and mystery, you will love this.

Michelle Pillow - Better Haunts and Garden Gnomes: A Cozy Paranormal Mystery - A Happily Everlasting World Novel (Unlucky Valley Book 1) (Volume 1) How awesome is it that author Michelle Pillow has continued the Everlasting World Books with this spinoff series of Unluky Valley. I mean who doesn’t need more magic, sexy shifters, witches,etc., Lots of fun and humor and of course we can never get enough of Aunt Polly. This series takes place in Colorado where there is an Unlucky Valley, a ghost town where many miners lost their lives a long time ago. Supposedly it had to do with the bad luck brought about by the two families that owned the mines and their “issues”. Now the residents have all relocated and built peaceful lives in “Lucky Valley” away from the bad luck caused by the original witch families that owned the mines. Lily and her brother Dante have moved to Lucky Valley to claim Lily’s Inheritance of an old house they learn is beyond disrepair but is loaded with magic. The siblings had no idea they are the descendants of the two witch families that owned the mines and they never dreamed magic, shifters and witches do exist. To top that off they learn that they are witches but have no idea how to find or control their new powers. Aunt Polly ( a very distant relative) has come all the way from Everlasting to the rescue. Of course there is no helping from Polly that doesn’t cause her special brand of mischief, confusion and her strange Garden Gnomes that seem to follow her everywhere. On top of facing a dilapidated home, their crazy family history and the fact that they are witches, The towns people are not thrilled to see the return of the families that bring horrible bad luck to their town. So the crazy incidents that start happening are too coincidental to be accidents. Add in a very sexy shifter, Nolan, (wolf shifter/construction worker/building code enforcer) and romantic sparks and talks of “mates” gets added to the mayhem. This is a really fun, exciting mystery/humorous/romantic/paranormal magic book that will have readers charmed, entertained and craving sequels to this series!

Lily Gooderstone had need left a dilapidated victorian house in lucky vally from her crazy absentee mother marigold Crawford Goode. She took her 3 kids and left them a fire station in another state then took off. Now her younger brother and her are in this crazy town dealing with all this crazy mess. Nolan Dawson is a werewolf and he is the city building code inforcer. He has been put in charge or giving the Goode family so much trouble they leave town so the city can take the house over. But there is more then just that going on. I love the mystery in this. It has awesome characters and fantastic storyline. Full of crazyness, magic, fun, betrayal, and so much more . I truly is amazing. I couldn't put it down. I wanted to give it 10 stars Voluntarily reviewed a copy and I honestly loved it.

I loved the characters and the story was excellent. It sucked me right in from the very beginning and held on tight. Aunt Polly kept me laughing the whole way through, while the “who done it” kept me guessing. Loved this book, I can’t wait for more!

Who doesn't love a bit of mystery, laugh out loud romance, and an eccentric aunt? I loved this book. Lily and her brother inherit and old house in need of lots of repairs. Her repair man is a pain in the butt and exceptionally hot. There are a ton of garden knomes that seem to have a mind of their own and an unwelcome town. There is obviously someone who doesn't want Lily and her brother in that house. Great book, I can't wait to read the next one!!!

Beware Lucky Valley, Colorado! Aunt Polley and of course, Herman her lobster, are moving in with her newly found relatives Lily and her brother. Yep, she's inherited the Good Family mansion. A crumbling Victorian. Then there is the hunky inspector delivering a list of have-to-do repairs. He happens to be a werewolf, but who's counting. No one in this town of PNR beings. Oh yeah, and don't forget the ever-increasing gnomes in and around the house. The welcome isn't exactly friendly. In fact, vandals, keep adding to the repair list. What's a girl to do? Who can she fall back on for help? Polly (AKA weird Aunt Polly), the hot inspector, or the....well, you need to read to see who else can help or hinder. The force behind the bad luck, the secrets in town, so much to discover and so little time. Another fun cozy from the author. If you think having a pet lobster is a bit strange, moving one from Maine to Colorado is one for the books.
