Publisher's Summary

"Happily Ever After" wasn't supposed to come with a do-over option. But when my husband of 20 years packs up and heads for greener pastures, and my son heads away to college, that's exactly what my midlife becomes. 

A do-over. 

This time, though, I plan to do things differently. Age is just a number, after all, and at 40 I'm ready to carve my own path. 

Eager for a fresh start, I make a somewhat unorthodox decision and move to a tiny town in the Sierra foothills. I'll be taking care of a centuries-old house that called to me when I was a kid. It's just temporary, I tell myself. It'll just be for a little while. 

That is, until I learn what the house really is: something I never would've thought possible.

As my new life begins, a couple of things become immediately clear: Forty isn't too old for adventure. Not by half. It is too old to take crap from anyone, however, or care what people think.

I had no idea how incredibly freeing that could be. Or how dangerous this new life would become. 

I have a chance to start again, and this time, I make the rules.

Absolutely a wonderful series

K. F. Breene brings us a delightful cast of quirky, mature characters, not only dealing with magical mayhem but with mid-life. Nicole Poole brings their personalities to life with her excellent narration.

It is so rare to have characters who are not in their 20's or 30's and unrealistically beautiful. I love that the main character embraces and acknowledges her mid-life reality.

I hope we see a saga in this series and not just a trilogy.

NOoOOooo! It's Over

WOW, just wow. where to begin.

First of all it's over. 😭😭😭 WHEN is the next one coming out, because I will be hoovering that one too.

So, first thought about Magical Midlife Madness is holy cats it is hilarious!! So many times I laughed out loud and caused side eyes from my husband and my kids. At one point I was laughing so hard I was crying and crossing my legs so I wouldn't piddle myself.

Second thought is that it is an amazing story! I love how powerful the main character is. She might second guess herself here and there, but she knows who she is, and she is amazing.

Thirdly, Niamh is hilarious! And the play between Mr. Tom, Niamh, and Edgar is extremely awesome/hilarious/sweet.

All that being said I LOVED this book, I would recommend to anyone, and cannot wait for the next book!!

Nothing makes you laugh harder than real life!!!

Are you ready to take the jump into a brand new type of story? Something with a bit of everything for everyone?! A brand new and exciting genre?! Something that is not just for us midlifers but woman of all ages who want their funny, adventurous, strong-female lead, exciting sexual chemistry stories to have a bit of reality?! Of course you are! We are the new woman of today, paving out the better roads of tomorrow! If you are onboard then this…this right here…is THE next book for you!

Nothing makes you laugh more than the things that happen in real life. Nothing makes you stronger than the mistakes of your past. Nothing makes you sexier than knowing who and what you are and this is where Jacinda finds herself at 40. Freshly divorced and her son off to college she is more than ready for the next chapter in her life and a new adventure. She gets all of that and more when she heads back to her favorite childhood memory, a mansion called Ivy House. Turns out that at 40 you are not done learning, laughing, and gaining strength from all that life brings.

Magical Midlife Madness will have you laughing so hard you may just pee a little! It will introduce you to a new and exciting world where magic does exist and so do the creatures of the night. It will also remind you that with age comes undeniable strength, knowledge and the ability to just roll with it. The twists, turns and surprises keep you turning pages and needing more so grab a copy now! I dare you!

Good God she isn’t THAT old!

I enjoyed the story line and it’s refreshing to read something fun with a middle aged woman as the heroine. However...I was really put off by the incessant reminders of her age. Popping bones, droopy skin, stretch marks and on and on through the WHOLE book. The defining character of a woman shouldn’t be her age. I would have enjoyed the story more if there had been an occasional reference instead of a constant reminder. 40 isn’t THAT old for Pete’s sake!

LMAO everyone that is middle age need to listen

Cant wait for the next one in the series, I laughed my head off and all my husband could do was ask what are you laughing at.
Wives that been married for a while can totally relate to this main character. Excellent story and excellent narrator. Love it
I even went back and listen to it a second time and I normally do not give out reviews easily.

A house to watch out for.

Great story, enveloping, making one want more. Mind the begonias. The first in a new series, unfortunately the rest aren't up for preorder yet. This story is fun, funny and amazing. The world is amazing, it really draws you in. The world is very well crafted, quite believable.

Cute story, a little light on character development

First, narrator did a good job with voicing the different characters but spoke too fast. I listened at 0.75 speed. A bit too much angst about being age 40 by the main character. Beginning was slow, almost returned the book but stuck with it. Wish I could have borrowed from library instead of buying.

Magically brilliant!

What a breath of fresh midlife air! As usual the narrator, Nicole Poole, did not disappoint in her delivery of another wonderful tale.
This was my first K.F. breene book and I can’t wait to get the rest of these in my ears! The story itself is amazing and made more so with a great narrator.

This book is a TEN star listen!

If you are looking for laugh out loud fun and snarky one liners, all tied into a well thought out storyline; then this one is for you! Seriously this one is a keeper and you will find yourself listening to it several times for that magical escape from mid-life's realities.
