This is an adult novel (though not very graphic in any way).
The promising debut of a hot new voice in paranormal romance-and the first of the Southern Witch novels.The family magic seems to have skipped over Tammy Jo Trask. All she gets are a few untimely visits from long-dead, smart-mouthed family ghost Edie. But when her locket-an heirloom that happens to hold Edie-s soul-is stolen in the midst of a town-wide crime spree, it-s time for Tammy to find her inner witch.After a few experiences with her dysfunctional magic, Tammy turns to the only person in small-town Duval, Texas, who can help: the very rich and highly magical Bryn Lyons. He might have all the answers-and a 007 savoir faire to boot-but the locket isn-t the only heirloom passed down in Tammy-s family. She also inherited a warning: stay away from Lyons.
This was a perfect change from all the young adult books I've been reading. I didn't want anything heavy, but I needed to get away from the teen angst and drama and this was the perfect medicine.
Light and LOL funny is a great way to describe this one. Although there is action and some serious stuff goes on it's all portrayed in a light manner.
Tammy Jo is a character that you just can't help but love. Even if she doesn't know what Gaelic is (that was a little over the top strange for me, but not that big of a deal).
The small town in Texas where Tammy Jo lives is perfect for the setting. Full of eccentric and unusual characters that are full of some very curious wit. I love a southern book and find southern characters completely loveable. If all southerners are the way they are in the this book and others I've read then I want to live in the south!
At times things seemed a little too light for the subject matter, but I was able to overlook that.
I can't wait to read the next book Barely Bewitched!
I give this one 4/5 moons!
