Ere or Do I Need A Cold Drink department The kettles on but the water never uite gets up to boiling in the steamy the water never uite gets up to boiling in the steamy department it gets warm but no one gets any tea if you get my driftEven with two beaus one who is a real mystery and another who is ust hard there s a lot of implication but not a lot of action Gladie s love life begs the uestion of whether two men are better than one I find one of the guys creepier than he is sexy and the other is ust too much of a playerOther than that there is a heaping helping of comedic silliness tinged with dead serious criminal mystery and a few good ounces of premonition by Grandma Zelda In all adds up to an unusual funny page turner with a cast of comic characters and a fantastically ridiculous plotI must note that older women over 35 or so are discussed Forty is not old and Fifty is the new thirty I am younger as an old woman of 52 than I ever was young I keep getting the feeling I m going to find out that Gladie s grandmother is younger than I am This is becoming a bookish pet peeve for me writers editors and publishers need to get with the program Each chapter starts off with a bit of matchmaking advice from Gladie s grandmother Zelda with whom Gladie is working Sometimes the connection is easy to see and other times it is subtle I have asked Elise a uestion about this and she ll be my guest here on AUGUST 14 as part of her virtual book tour with BEWITCHING BOOK TOURS I also ask several of her characters a few uestions I am looking forward to the answers So mark your calendars and include this link which will become active on August 14 Sax s obvious writing influences are Janet Evanovich with a small town feel like Fannie Flagg It seems likely she s also read Mary Janice Davidson If you like clean ish romance with a little magic and enjoy these writers you will I think enjoy this book It is best read as a series in order I do recommend this series as a whole because it s getting even funnier and some time soon someone will get some ARC provided kindly through Netgalley I ve read this book without reading the first one of the series I know shame on me I probably would have understand better or uicker the situation about this crazy town assaulted by a cult about aliens and also the part about the gift of Gladie and her grandmother Zelda It was a fun read full of laughs but also with mystery and suspense The book turns around Gladie and it seems that there is always a thing happening I think that book was the first book where the whole story is so much comicalAbout Gladie She seems to always be in the wrong place at the wrong time Sometimes I was like How is it the wrong time Sometimes I was like How is it possible that she ends up in all this drama At the beginning of the book she is at the dentist even if she hates being here and well view spoiler when she woke up from her anesthesia she founds her dentist s body dead without his head She freaks out and covered herself in blood It was hilarious but I so didn t want to be at "HER PLACE HIDE SPOILER I M LOVING THIS SERIES "place hide spoiler I m loving this series is kinda the right timing When you ve been reading serial killer books and binge watching Dexter for the past month you can get a little teeny bit dark I m going to start listening to Marilyn Manson and buy a dog collar for myself if I keep this upTo prevent this major fashion disaster I needed a hilarious series in my life and this one is deliveringWe have Glady our lovable friend who would totally fit in with most

come and take them away They are keeping the local police pretty busy Not to mention that the police force aren t really the sharpest tools in the shed in the first place They have been turning off

literature Take it for what it is and you ll have fun.
