Sunday Salon: Hex in High Heels by Linda Wisdom

Looking for a something a little different for your reading pleasure in the New Year?

Look no further than "Hex in High Heels" for an entertaining, fantasy adventure, topped off with a hot-blooded romance and a touch of paranormal.

What’s a guy to do when his family shuns him? To make matters worse, the family wants him dead.

Deciding to leave his family and go out on his own wasn’t a difficult decision for hunky carpenter Jake Harrison. Letting the feisty shop owner, Blair Fitzpatrick, get close to him is.

The two are complete opposites. Blair is into vintage items. Jake is an outdoors-type. Blair is a witch. Jake is a Were-Border Collie.

“Hex in High Heels” is a funny, laugh-out loud magical journey. It’s a mixture of romance, suspense, humor and exploits with just the right amount of paranormal added to create a perfect blend.

Trouble begins before the Winter Carnival when Jake’s brother and mother show up followed soon by the rest of their pack. Added to the mix is an RV full of unruly elves causing chaos around town.

Can Blair convince Jake she’s on his side in time to help him save the town from his family of Werewolves? First she has to rescue him from the city pound before he’s destroyed as a killer dog.

Author Linda Wisdom weaves a story of loyalty, trust and honor while taking the reader on a magical carpet ride. Meanwhile, the sexual tension between Jake and Blair explodes on the page creating an erotic adventure for the reader.

The story is fast pace from beginning to end. The cast of zany characters adds to the enchantment. You’ll be bewitched by Horace, an eight-inch, gray-stone gargoyle; Felix, the Kit-Kat clock; and Fluff and Puff, bunny slippers who become a tattoo; along with various other witches, wizards and ghosts.

“Hex in High Heels” is the fourth installment in Ms. Wisdom’s paranormal romance series. It’s a stand alone book. However, you’ll be reaching for the other three books just to see what else has happened. The book also includes a recipe and a sneak peek at the next Hex book, “The Best Hex Ever.”

Let the magic surround you and draw you in as witches, wizards, werewolves and elves come to life. Let your imagination take you away to Moonstone Lake where life is anything but ordinary.

“Hex in High Heels” casts a spell of intrigue that will have you twitching your nose for more.

  1. I haven't read many paranormal mysteries, but I've been meaning to--and this series sounds like a fun one to try! Thanks.

    Mystery Writing is Murder

  2. Mason - I just love quirky characters. They can really liven up a story, and this one sounds as though it's full of them. Thanks for the review : ).

  3. This sounds like a fun read! Can't wait to give it a try :)

  4. Elizabeth, it is a funny one. There are some "laugh-out loud" moments when you catch yourself say, "I can't believe he did that." Hope you enjoy.

    Margot, quirky and zany would describe some of these characters. The Fluff and Puff tattoo is just one of them.

    Jemi, hope you enjoy it. It was a fun read. I've already got the other 3 books in the series to read too. Can't wait.

  5. Witches, werewolves, wizards, elves, and humor - that's a nice change from the usual angst and terror. Sounds fun.

  6. Oh, I totally agree with you, Mason. The quirky characters are one of the greatest pleasures in these books. I just love Wisdom's creation of these oddball additions to the books - Fluff and Puff, Horace, etc.

  7. Lesa, I'm not sure which I enjoyed more Horace or Fluff and Puff. With Horace's antics, she could probably write a book just about him.

  8. 'Jake is a Were-Border Collie,' I dig that but I'm not allowed any more books on my to be read pile until I've made a dent in the over fifty I have going now. But come the summer who knows.
    Happy reading and a lovely week to you.

  9. Simone, this was be a very good book to add to your summer read pile. Hope your week is happy and successful.


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
