Kiss the Witch Goodbye: A Nick Gibson NovelKiss the Witch Goodbye: A Nick Gibson Novel by Lisa Olsen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay. First of all I have to say ‘thank you’ to my husband for recommending and loaning me this book. It was fantastic!

Second, the title had me singing the first line of What I Did For Love inserting WITCH for TODAY. Having a title that makes you sing is fun! And the title also, keeps you guessing all the way through. Sorry, I won’t throw in spoilers as much as I want to.

I should have given this book a lower rating for not starring a strong fem. But with Sgt. Nick Gibson as the lead, he is at least empowering, if not protective of the strong women in his life, his daughter, Veronica, and his girlfriend, Annaliese Cross.

As exciting as the story is, I like how the author, Lisa Olsen, takes the time to teach newbies about Wicca and the flow of positive energies. Anna even takes Veronica into a ritual to invoke safety for herself and her father. I felt this was done well, yet not so deep that baby Wiccans can’t see a little about how the spirituality works. Kudos!

Other parts of the book are just plain scary and exciting. I wanted to go to sleep when I was at 80% but had to see it all through. Thereby a 5:30 sleep time. Good thing I had a nap yesterday!

Though this story ended with most threads tied up… I saw a stray which makes me look forward to another Nick Gibson novel! Yay!

Pretty Witches All in a RowPretty Witches All in a Row by Lisa Olsen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a complicated find. My husband read and recommended book two of this series, Kiss the Witch Goodbye. I went to the Amazon page to see if I could afford it. Nope. So I borrowed it from him. Meanwhile I found there was a book one and it was free, so I picked it up. Then I loaned it to my hubby. He had to read them in reverse order. I was afraid I was doomed to the same, but he finished just in time for me to start on book one. Yay!

SO… I just finished this book. I was fun, as fun as a murder mystery can be. Yes, there is blood and bore, but there is plenty of light-hearted repartee, think Castle TV show for example. Don’t expect, or let’s hope we don’t expect this kind of behavior from our cops. It tells a good tale this way, ya know? Also, the witchy bits, not quite real, but there is a bit of an education into the basics of Wiccan life.

But as a story it was fun. It doesn’t live up to my goal of reading Fem leads by fem writers, but hey, if you saw my recent reads, you’d realize this is very light in comparison. As for the mystery, it did have me guessing almost to the end. The characters were fun and the world seemed real enough. I highly recommend this book for a light, fun read.

Now I will go and read book two.
