One Hex of a Read!
Has anyone else read Over-Hexed by Vicki Lewis Thompson? If you haven't read it, you should definitely pick up a copy. Really worth it. Its a light, uplifting, fun, romantic comedy with paranormal elements thrown in. The characters are really endearing and the story itself exceptional. Thompson might be better known for her Nerd series but I have a feeling this is her newest series in the making soon to be in the spotlight.
So now your asking what the books about? It's about this hot guy Sean who has the problem of attracting the attention of too many if not all the women he meets. And when a new couple come to town, Dorcas and Ambrose, who are magically inclined matchmakers in hiding, Sean accidentally mentions his little problem in front of them. Well, it's a challenge to the matchmaking couple who decide to act. But fixing Sean's problem won't be easy. Sean gets the make-down of his life even as he suddenly meets his soul mate. So how does a guy who's always depended on his good looks for everything suddenly convince the woman he's made for to give him a chance? Well it will be hard in Sean's case because Maggie is in town as a rival buyer for a piece of property Sean desperately wants to own in the first place. In the second place, Sean will have to really work at being charming instead of letting everything ride on his great looks.
I really enjoyed all the characters in this book but I simply love Dorcas and Ambrose. Thankfully they will be up for a new challenge in book two of this series titled "Wild & Hexy" coming out on June 3rd 2008. Can't wait to see what mischief they get into then.
