Nine years ago, Vivienne Jones nursed her broken heart like any young witch would: vodka, weepy music, bubble baths…and a curse on the horrible boyfriend. Sure, Vivi knows she shouldn’t use her magic this way, but with only an “orchard hayride” scented candle on hand, she isn’t worried it will cause him anything more than a bad hair day or two.
That is until Rhys Penhallow, descendent of the town’s ancestors, breaker of hearts, and annoyingly just as gorgeous as he always was, returns to Graves Glen, Georgia. What should be a quick trip to recharge the town’s ley lines and make an appearance at the annual fall festival turns disastrously wrong. With one calamity after another striking Rhys, Vivi realizes her silly little Ex Hex may not have been so harmless after all.
Suddenly, Graves Glen is under attack from murderous wind-up toys, a pissed off ghost, and a talking cat with some interesting things to say. Vivi and Rhys have to ignore their off the charts chemistry to work together to save the town and find a way to break the break-up curse before it’s too late.
I don’t read a lot of romance, but this is 100% a winner!
First of all, let’s talk about that leading lady. Vivienne “Vivi” Jones is exactly the kind of heroine I want to read about. She’s smart, strong-willed, yet also willing to admit when she’s made a mistake. She’s also occasionally hilarious, as is her love-interest, Rhys. By the way, Rhys is such a refreshing male lead. The reason I don’t read romance novels often is because I usually find the guys to be creepy. Rhys is never that, and instead manages to be charming without being pushy.
Now, I want to talk about how much this book put me in the Halloween spirit. This book does for Halloween what Hallmark movies do for Christmas, and for that reason alone, you should pick it up!
