Cloudy with a Chance of Witchcraft: A Paranormal Women's Fiction Romance Novel (Grimm Cove Book 1) by Mandy M. Roth - Review
I discovered this book as part of the newly released #PWF Fab 13. I think I might have read one of Mandy's books before, but one thing for certain is that I will definitely be reading more.
Fans of Kristen Painter's books should know that Mandy had a very similar writing style for me. She made me laugh, she definitely understands the toils and tribulations of being a woman over 40, oh and she gave me my new favorite term for children - "Crotch Goblins".
This paranormal story introduces a lot of characters that we are obviously going to learn more about as the series goes on. Fate plays a huge role in happenings and fans will know that I am a huge believer in things happening for a reason.
The magik (Mandy uses the k spelling throughout the book - which I am personally not a fan of but it was consistent) is expertly researched. I actually messaged her on Facebook to ask if she was in fact a witch herself (she is not), because there are actual tips and tricks in there that I use. The story is fun, this trio of girls are hilarious, and the world building and secondary characters are totally solid.
This gets a 4 1/2 out of 5 stars from me - despite the fact there are shifters - so that in itself should let you know it's a good read. It really only lost the half point due what I am now calling "The Melanie Clause" - in other words the story was good but I pretty much solved it early on - and as fun as it is to be right, I don't feel that I can give a solid 5 when that happens. When you read it please be sure to come and let me know if you guessed what was coming, and tell me how much you enjoyed it - because I am sure you will.
The book sets the reader up for Dana's story - Hexing With A Chance Of Tornadoes releasing in March 2020 which is available for pre-order on Amazon now.
