Description

Divorced, desperate, and destitute, former restaurateur Defiance Dayne finds out she has been bequeathed a house by a complete stranger. She is surprised, to say the least, and her curiosity gets the better of her. She leaves her beloved Phoenix and heads to one of the most infamous towns in America: Salem, Massachusetts.

She's only there to find out why a woman she's never met would leave her a house, a veritable castle that has seen better days. The lawyer assigned to the case practically begs her to take it off her hands, mostly because she's scared of it. The inanimate structure that, as far as Dephne can tell, has never hurt a fly.

Though it does come with some baggage. A pesky neighbor who wants her gone. A scruffy cat who's a bit of a jerk. And a handyman bathed in ink who could moonlight as a supermodel for GQ.

She decides to give it three days, and not because of the model. She feels at home in Salem. Safe. But even that comes to a screeching halt when people begin knocking on her door day and night, begging for her help to locate their lost objects.

Come to find out, they think she's a witch. And after a few mysterious mishaps, Dephne is beginning to wonder if they're right.

Looking Forward to Next Book

Yes, this book does have a lot of the same similarities as (Charley Davidson- Grim Reaper series) and Defiance just found out she's a witch and she's 44 not in her 20's. She has a huge, old, creepy house named Percy while Charly lived in an apt. right? She's been left an inheritance and is no longer poor wondering if she can afford to buy a sandwich. It's a good start to another series by Darynda Jones and I enjoy her stories, charm and witty humor. Can't wait for the 2nd book in the series.

Absolutely Love this book

This is the first book I have listened to from this Author and I am Extremely Impressed. This book is Great! I found myself counting the minutes til I could listen to more of the book. I don’t want to reveal to much info about the story line but I can honestly say the story is interesting, exciting, funny and a little Sexy. The narrator does a Amazing job with the voices of characters. She is definitely one of the best I have ever heard. I hope there will be Many more books in this series.

Fun but not enough time to invest fully

This was really difficult to rate. On one hand I loved the boldness of the story it wasn't afraid of trying new things, the characters were snarky and middle aged but on the other hand something was missing. A big something. More explanation or just more happenings in this world. I wasn't given enough to want to continue. Like the book was more of a sample than a meal.

But omg finally a middle age fantasy romance. I mean not everyone is a 20 year old virgin. This tale was lighthearted and fun although a bit predictable. The memes and shirt quotes were my favorite. And while I did get lost in the snarky fun, the book had it's problems. Dayne 40 something didn't talk or act like her age. There also wasn't full proof why Grandma had to stay away and not train her to use her powers. And how Dayne apparently didn't need to train because she just had the symbols floating in her head from birth.

Dayne procrastinated continuously even to save her own life. Again she was middle age which is so very rare for some reason but then again she was also super special which isn't that rare in the book community. Her best friend was very wild and fun which added nicely to the story. And when the both became brain dead and drooling when Roane walked into a room, that had me in stitches. My biggest problem was that the book didn't give enough. It left you with a cliffhanger and not enough time to get invested so I didn't feel compelled to continue.

Another Darynda Jones hit!

I loved the combination of the unremarkable with the paranormal in this book. Defiance is a middle aged down on her luck ordinary woman who is swept into a magical world. She is totally blindsided by the discovery that she has a heritage and a mystical past that will shatter her present. A must read for all magic lovers.

Best Book I’ve Read in Ages

I loved this book! I haven’t had such a funny paranormal romance in years. I’m only bummed that the rest of the series isn’t on audible yet. I just bought the series in paperback from Amazon and it should be here tomorrow. Can’t wait to read book 2.

What I hoped for

I didn’t know what to expect with this one. I listened to all the other Darynda books on audible and was hoping the same quirky, seductive fun was in this one. I was not disappointed. The cliffhanger has me at the edge of my seat. The narrator is new to be but did a phenomenal job! I will be listening to the next in the series!

Left me begging for more

Once again Darynda Jones has written a book that left me begging for the next. Not sure she ever fails in her writing.
Defiance is a very relatable character that kept me giggling and knowing I would do exactly the same things. She made me wish over and over for secret powers. But deeper to me she also made
me wish I had a amazing friend like Annette or fathers like Dad and Poppy. Rowan is without question someone I want in my life. Sigh
There is such joy to me that Darynda is so inclusive in her writing and it is flawless. It fits without question, it’s the world I wish for and pray we will achieve one day.
Now on to book 2. This is honestly my second time reading but loving even more.

A slower start, yet an interesting story.

All Darynda Jones books are always filled with snark and humor, which I appreciate. This was a slow start but built up stream. Overall a fun read/listen.

Pretty good story

I liked it, I thought there were holes in the back story, and some of it was kinda ridiculous. but I listened to it twice. and bought the next 2 books.
narration was good.

Great start to a new series. Love the location and the plot. Characters are interesting and the whole book is well thought out. Looking forward to what I hope will be a long journey. Love that you brought back the let’s call them chapter starters, don’t want to spoil it for anyone.

Ms. Jones has done it again!

Darynda Jones and Traci Odom have knocked it out of the park with this book. This opening book in the series has Jones signature strong female characters, interesting twist and turns, and hilarity. Traci Odom does an amazing job of bring this story to life. I can't wait to see to for the next book! Pardon me while I go download it. 😀
