” I love a book that can pack action, romance and humour all in one and this series has all that and more.”
~ Under the Covers

If there’s one thing that Ivy Wilde, underachieving witch extraordinaire, loves more than lazing on the sofa with snacks and her demanding familiar Brutus. It’s lounging on the sofa with snacks and watching Enchantment. A mixture between reality TV and game show Ivy can proudly boast that she’s never missed an episode. So, when the Order of Magical Enlightenment want her to join the crew of the show for their new series Ivy can’t believe her luck. The only draw back?  There’s been a brutal murder of one of the contestants… and she has to be a runner and drag herself out of bed at 6am.

I absolutely adored the first book in this series which introduces Ivy Wilde our sassy and hilarious heroine. Ivy is perfectly content with her life as a taxi driver and despite her extremely powerful abilities as a witch, has no ambitions to climb the ladder. However, after helping out the witches college with a theft-turned-murder case they have come to her for help when a contestant is killed on a very popular TV programme Enchantment and they suspect magic may be involved. I loved the premise of this book, there is so many reality TV shows around and Helen Harper puts a magical (and murderous) twist on them in Star Witch. 

The mystery in this book was a lot of fun the mixture of Ivy’s fun personality and the craziness of “TV people” made for a really entertaining read. I actually think the story in this one was better than Slouch Witch as it didn’t have to concentrate so much on world building, leaving more time for a juicy murder. Star Witch also has a little more romance. When we finished Slouch Witch it was on a bit of a cliffhanger in regard to Ivy and Winter’s relationship. In this book there are definite developments which kept the romance junkie in me very happy.

This is becoming one of my favourite series, I love a book that can pack action, romance and humour all in one and this series has all that and more. It’s a book you can read and have fun with, with a heroine that we can all identify with. Bring on the next book!spacer

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

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?
