Series: The Lazy Girl's Guide To Magic #3

~ Under the Covers
On to the third book in The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Magic series and this time our favourite laid back witch is consorting with ghosts. Not that she wants to, but the consequences of absorbing necromatic magic without dying, as she did at the end of Star Witch, seems to be the ability to see and talk to ghosts. Now all the ghosts want Ivy to do things, they all have demands! Especially a very dead former head of the Order of Magic Enlightenment. His first demand…she needs to stop a killer targeting witches.
Poor Ivy, despite wanting a quiet life she always ends up in the thick of things. This book is no different and she and Rafe Winter try and track down and stop a killer who has a vendetta against witches. For some reason, I didn’t find their adventure as exciting as the story in Star Witch. For me, the bad guy wasn’t fleshed out enough, the whole investigation felt a little lacklustre and shallow.
Although the adventure and action part of the book wasn’t as enjoyable as the previous books. That didn’t mean that I didn’t have fun trailing along with Ivy and Winter. They are a great example of an opposites attract romance and I love the banter and smoulder between them.
Although this isn’t my favourite in this series, it’s still a good read and I highly recommend picking it up if you are in the mood for a light read.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
