Publisher's Summary

Ivy Wilde, the laziest witch in the West, is still entangled with the Hallowed Order of Magical Enlightenment. That's not a bad thing, however, because it gives her plenty of excuses to spend more time with sapphire-eyed Raphael Winter, her supposed nemesis. And when he comes knocking because he needs her to spy on the latest series of Enchantment, she jumps at the chance.

Hanging around a film set can't be hard - or dangerous - right?

The Lazy Girls Guide to Magic Series

I'm not going to write a big review like I did in book one because if you are here I'm going to assume you loved it so much you had to get book 2. In case you are wondering though Helen's "Lazy Girl's Guide to Magic" only gets better each book.

Good story telling Great Story

Really good story. Nararator is excellent. If you are looking for a witchy mystery with a splash of danger and a sprinkling of romance then you have found your book. A well written book is a rare treasure.

Whodunit & Survivor Magical Edition

I really enjoyed this book, our 2 main characters finally show feelings for each other. I absolutely loved that Brutus went with another witch and that our heroine gets thrown into ridiculous situations and she’s not even a part of the order. On to book 3.

wonderfully funny, quirky and satisfying

Ivy continues to delight the readers with her antics. Her aversion to anything “Order” related has soften. She goes to Scotland to investigate a suspicious death on the scene of Enchantment, her favorite show. She is star stuck to be in the orbit of her favorite Enchantment stars but pissed that she must work. Her working title is called a runner. After day one, running has given her blisters. Ivy and Winter are not working hand to hand as in book 1. They were released from the spell, which kept them bound.

A round of applause for Helen Harper unique handling of the romance between Ivy and Winter. If you follow my reviews, you know that I identify many of the romances as harlequin. Harlequin romances include the overly dramatic method in which men and women fall in love. There is the pattern of attraction, denial of attraction, passionate kisses, denial of attraction, a lifesaving incident, passionate kisses, and final a declaration of love concluding with the Neanderthal declaration of, my woman/my man.

The romance of Ivy and Winter was lightly referenced in book 1. Their physical attraction consummated with the walk of shame. Their discussion of their tryst was straight forward without the numerous misunderstanding usually featured in romance story lines. Thank the Lord! Harper’s romance for our characters does not supplant the plot. It is a quirky story line without the dramatics or saccharine found in harlequin romances. I enjoyed how our lovers acknowledged their feelings.

Despite the heroism Ivy showed for the “Order” in book 1 and her willingness to save their butts in book 2, the “Order” is still taking advantage of any non-order witches. Winter was not having none of that. Ivy identifies the threat as a zombie while Winter says it is an animated anomaly. If you encounter a dead body, which reentered the world from a grave and has a penchant for blood, is that a zombie?

P.S. Give Helen Harper her kudos for her description of Ivy as a curvy woman!
