Tammy Jo Trask has adjusted to the fact that the family
magic has apparently skipped a generation, but she could
sure use a little bit of magic at the moment. She's just
lost her job, thanks to a snooty former classmate, the
local retired doctor has drugged her and stolen some of her
blood to perform a ritual to bring back her dead wife, and
her heirloom locket, which happens to contain the spirit of
family ghost Edie, has been stolen. More pressing than any
of this, however, is the fact that she's somehow ended up
on the hit-list of a pack of werewolves. Tammy Jo needs
more than a little help, and has it, in the form of her
disbelieving ex-husband, sheriff's deputy Zach, and local
millionaire and very magical Bryn Lyons.
Bryn is willing to help Tammy Jo with everything, if she'll
only apprentice herself to him, which she is unwilling to
do because of a warning from her family. Despite their
edict of "stay away from Lyons," Tammy Jo soon comes to
realize not only her survival, but that of Zach and her
beloved Edie also depend on the mysterious and sexy Bryn,
who may or may not know more about the craziness in Tammy
Jo's life than he is sharing.
Kimberly Frost's WOULD-BE WITCH is the first in the
Southern Witch series and is laugh-out-loud fun. Tammy Jo
is a hoot as she stumbles through her attempts at making
magic and dealing with the men in her life. Zach is a
stereotypical good ol' boy, and Bryn Lyons is powerfully
sexy! Ms. Frost is an author to watch for in the future.
In the small town of Duvall, Texas, the only thing more
troublesome than gossip â€” is magic.
The family magic seems to have skipped Tammy Jo Trask. All
she gets in the way of the supernatural are a few untimely
visits from the long dead, smart-mouthed family ghost,
Edie. But when her locketâ€”an heirloom that happens to hold
Edie's soulâ€”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 in dysfunctional magic, Tammy turns
to the only one 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
legacy passed down in Tammy's family. She also inherited a
warning...to stay away from anyone named Lyons.
