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?

I Adore This Series!!!

By Helen Harper
Narrated Tanya Eby

Oh My Goddess. I adore this series. It's silly, amusing, and unrealistically realistic. If that made sense to you, then you'll love this series too.

Book two starts a month after the events in the first book. Ivy is semi-stalking Winter and has returned to cab driving.

And then... circumstances put her on the set of a Magical Reality Show where she must solve another mystery. Oh course Ivy gets into trouble, trys to avoid working, and when time allows she flirts shamelessly with Winter. Nothing goes as planned and Ivy ends up being the only one who can save the situation... and its a lot of work 🤣. Actually I wish the author would have finished out the Reality Show angle... I want to know who would have actually won.

Favorite para-phrase: "The Order wants me to spy on Enchantment and Enchantment wants me to spy on the Order. This is quite messy."

Why yes Ivy! This is deliciously messy and I rather enjoyed it!!!🤩🤩🤩

I would love to have a chapter from Brutus' point of view. For some reason when he speaks to Ivy he only uses one to three word phrases. Yet, when he speaks with Winter he makes complete highly intelligent sentences. I'm not even sure Ivy knows he can speak in that manner. Also, I wonder why she doesnt spell Winter's cat to speak. Seems like her talking would be beneficial to Winter more that Brutus' speaking is for Ivy.

As for Ivy and Winter, they must make a decision about their relation while trying to stay professional. It's only been about a month in a half since they met, but things seem intense. Oh the Joy's of new love. Everything seems urgent and crucial. My Goodreads friend, @Holly, noted that things were better with the slow burn. I agree totally. At least one more book of flirty fun and a couple more one night stands would have given things time to build up. But we are here now and I rather them be intensely in love than not together at all.

I looooove the narrator. She gives us the European accents when the character warrants it. She really sounds like the Ivy character was made for her.

4 Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟. Great book. I've become friends with the characters. This is for my top Tier books. The story is deep with many layers. I probably finished it in a day. I'll likely reread this one when I miss the characters or need a pick me up.

Great story. Fast pace

Lazy girls guide to magic is a fantastic series. Finished both books in just a few days. Ivy is funny and definitely got a great sense of humor. My favorite series from Harper. I think I am just going to read the 3rd book. Because I don't want to wait for the audio book release. Thumbs up for Ivy and Raf!!

Short

Short middle book. An American accent for British and Scottish characters, really hurts the book. As does the main character not questioning more those who have done her wrong..

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.
