Today I am welcoming Michelle Kopra and her new book Hexes in Texas. This is a paranormal romance book with quite a bit of humor.
Fed up with the slushy snow of winter, and the frigid Canadian wizards Julie McNabb wants a transfer to somewhere warm, and where the men are smoking hot!
Instead, she ends up in Bug Tussle. A small wizard farming community in Texas where the unicorns freak her out, and the resident witches watch NASCAR and eat Barbeque.
Despite her goals to get out as fast as she can, Julie makes friends, has fun, and falls for Vance, the hunky animal manager.
Now if only Julie can convince Vance to give up on Mrs. Right, for Mrs. right now!
“There has to be something more than this,” I sighed as the broom came dangerously close to the road. Before I turned into witch jam, I used my magic to stop the broom, tilting it up, and slowing its descent until my purple boots skidded against the pavement.
“Like what?” Skippy asked.
“I don’t know, but flying around at night, maintained spells, checking perimeters? How is that living? I want a life that’s exciting. I don’t want to die a thousand years from now, regretting I lived all my life in Hamilton.”
I absolutely loved this book. I hope this is the beginning of a series. I did think it was just a little short, but in the end everything was very concise. I adored the use of the modern background with the paranormal witch world. I really loved the characters though. Skippy, as you read above, is a cat and has some of the funniest lines. Also, Julie and Vance’s interactions are steamy and predictable, but you still totally and completely fall for Vance. The most frustrating for me was Julie’s family. For a few moments I thought Julie was invisible. She’s not but it’s that frustrating with her mother. Overall, I would recommend this book and can’t wait to read it again. I only hope that Michelle Kopra will write a follow-up about Julie and Vance. There is plenty to cover and you can definitely go deeper into the world she created.
I want to thank Michelle Kopra for stopping by today and Bewitching Book tours for allowing me to host one of their stops.
I used to be a closet writer, writhing in agony if anyone came near me when I was trying to put story to paper.
Then I had kids. Two of them, with big brown eyes, and sweet little giggles and sticky fingers that goober up my computer screen, and suddenly I didn’t care how silly my stories seemed to the rest of the world. Well, not as much anyways 😉
I have six stories published on Amazon.com for the moment, with several more in the works. Please feel free to contact me, I can be found on Facebook, twitter, and at my website michellekopra.com. Let me know if you love my stories, or hate them, or if I parked in your spot!
