My absolute favorite and will read again and again I strongly recommend It has outstanding ualities The characters are wonderful and surprising and multi dimensional The writing is luring engaging and well crafted enough to keep me interested from cover to cover and beyond The plot is astonishing with twists and turns weaved into a well thought and planned story There’s no pretense and romance was well balanced and done entirely correctly with properly distributed amounts of hints behaviors and incredible undeniable chemistry Predictability is at an all time low With the exception of series based books that follow the same path but are just as good Overall Favorite must read again recommend I liked this a lot Garnet Lacey is funny; Sebastian is sexy; Gabriel is kinda cool for an FBI guy; and Parrish is loyal All around a good cast of characters for a sexy cozy mystery involving witches vampires and zombies This is the second book in the Garnet Lacey series continues the story from a few months after the last book ended Now that Garnet Sebastian have managed to avoid the Vatican witch hunters life should be back to normal but that all changes when an FBI agent turns up at the store to uestion Garnet He wants to uestion her about the murders of 6 Vatican witch hunters the year before Garnet panics and realising that she is the prime suspect she tries to hide her identity The fact that the FBI agent is psychic doesn't help so she takes matters into her own hands by creating a love spell that she hopes will get him to listen to her side of the storyShe is still dating Sebastian but her jealousy issues are causing problems just like they did with her ex Parrish she doesn't want him to feed from her but hates the fact that he has to feed from others to survive It doesn't help that she is keeping secrets from him he has no idea that Lilith killed the 6 Vatican witch hunters or that Parrish is currently hiding out in her basement Throw in the fact that Garnet is coming across zombies at every turn and things are bound to get interestingI really loved the first book in this series but while I still enjoyed Dead Sexy I don't think it uite lived up to my expectations This story wasn't as fast paced as the previous one and I don't feel that there was as much comedy this time If you liked the first book then you'll probably still enjoy this one it was still a cut above some other books I've read but I'm hoping that the third book will be even better I do not dislike this series But I don't adore it Still it has its fun moments its sexy interludes and many interesting ideas at its foundation This time around Garnet must deal with the FBI breathing down her neck while following a uerulous crow around town and coping with Sebastian's jealousy of Parrish It's never a dull moment for this WiccanThere are laughs to be had and bittersweet moments to treasure but Hallaway's characters still don't feel fully realized to me Something about the men in Garnet's life strikes me as derived from a template While both are attractive Parrish is a bit real than Sebastian even though the latter is her present boyfriend The FBI agent provides some interesting interactions and prompts Garnet to come to terms with the death of her coven The zombie plot and the crow messenger while intriguing seem secondary to everything else going on and the resolution is anti climactic I'm unsure how I feel about the Goddess Lillith residing in Garnet Most often her only involvement is in making Garnet's tummy rumble Her powers are under used to the point that she really serves no purpose outside of providing brief bursts of strength Overall this book is a very chick lit brand of UF and yet Garnet is not a chick lit kind of girl That dichotomy paired with the lack of truly thrilling moments keeps me from loving the series But it's not a bad way to laze away a rainy afternoon Magic is not for the gutless And I Garnet Lacey have become a seriously powerful witchLet’s just hope I can stomach what’s comingI should’ve known I’d never get away with murder Especially when the people I accidentally unleashed the dark Goddess Lilith on were Vatican witch hunters Besides I’ve had other things to worry about I really don’t want my vampire boyfriend to find out my vampire ex is stowing his coffin in my basementMeanwhile pesky frat boy zombies are popping up everywhere even at Mercury Crossing the occult bookstore I manage And if that weren’t enough I’ve got a gorgeous FBI agent hot on my trail What to do? A teensy little love spell might encourage cute FBI guy to listen to my side of the story and I could break it any timeright? Between love spells gone wrong and sharing my body with the Goddess Lilith a plea of innocence won’t be so easy to conjure up I really want to like this series but Garnet is making it difficult What a bunch of stupid decisions she madeWhat I enjoyed Sebastian Still not sure why he loves Garnet though Benjamin the attack ghost Barney the cat who is allergic to magic Dominguez Basically the guys are great and the women aren'tWhat could have been better Garnet Seriously who in their right mind thinks it's a good idea to put a love charm on the FBI agent who is investigating you? Especially when you already have a jealous boyfriend and an ex boyfriend hanging around Izzy view spoilerYeah let's just look the other way while your cousin turns people into her zombie slaves WTF??? hide spoiler meh light and fluffy Never hated a main character She isn't just enormously stupid she's also flighty unfaithful and the worlds biggest hypocrite Her boyfriend rightfully calls her on her shit But instead of her acknowledging her faults changing and growing she just feels like SHE'S been wronged and instead of changing her behavior she is ten times worse and not only lusts but makes out with to different men While complaining like a child that he has to take blood from others to SURVIVE Which he wouldn't need to do unless you denied him yours He dies without it what's the problem here? In the end he just takes her back and tells her he loves her why? There's nothing lovable about this stupid selfish unfaithful wench So she doesn't learn doesn't grow gets away with her awful behaviour and is rewarded for it I Cant stand it I hope she's eaten by a zombie Slowly and painfully I wouldn't be this angry if she overall was a bad writer She isn't which is the saddest part This could've been pretty good but she completely ruins it with a godawful main character Sure the story is shallow not well thought out there's major laps in logic and there's too much detail You're basically drowning in descriptions But tho basic writing skills are there She just needs a coach and a better editor or something She just wastes all that potential and it makes me fuming And did I mention that the main character is STUPID BEYOND BELIEF 95% of her problems are because of her own idiotic actions The worst of all happens in the beginning An FBI agent comes looking for her to answer for a crime but doesn't recognize her He shows her a picture asks do you know this person?Instead of answering no like a rational person she says she works hereWHAT THE EVERLOVING FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU? And to makes matters worse she then casts a lovespell on him and makes out with him Hello you have a boyfriend who loves you who just yesterday called you out on your previously unfaithful and deceptive behaviour?? Just die you horrid horrid harpieAnd please give the author some writing lessons She has the potential to be SO much better Sadly I'm done So this book ticked nearly every box on my fluffy paranormal romp indulgence list hot gentlemanly vampires magic occult shop hipster coffeehouse sassy pet cat and a main character who takes the paranormal zaniness in her life in strideI thought Garnet was a pretty solid and fun protagonist As a practicing Witch who shares her body with a powerful Goddess she is no stranger to all things magical and has a sense of humor about it all that I enjoyed At the same time she's got pretty modest goals; she's just a gal trying to run her shop sort out her relationships make sure her cat gets fed and avoid going to jail for something she sort of didn't do Compared to similar books with similar heroines I liked that Garnet 1 Doesn't navel gaze I get annoyed when the protagonist spends too much time complaining about or insisting on their mundaneness especially when everything that happens to them is to the contrary Some might wonder why so many washboard abbed men are attracted to her but hey if she doesn't uestion it then neither will I2 Makes decisions They're not always good ones but for the most part she is the driver of the story and her own life She knows what she is and isn't capable of so when her friends or lovers come to the rescue it feels right instead of convenientThings that could have been improved Neither of the crises the FBI agent and the zombies ever feel truly urgent or like a real threat Too much narrativeinterior monologue between lines of dialogue There were a few times when I had to go back to remember what the last line in the conversation was Better use of Sebastian He goes from calling Garnet on her s to supporting her unconditionally while she works out the situation with her ex I like that he did both of these things but I would really like to know what he was thinking through that change of heart Looking forward to reading the next book in this series This was so fun I still can't believe how long it took me to get into this series despite owning some of the books My main concern at the end of the first book was a love triangle that didn't seem to have a positive outcome available Well Dead Sexy ended the triangle and I'm glad to see it go It was as satisfying a way to end it as possible for this book though it definitely wasn't the best case scenario where all people find love and happinessThis one had some fun humor with zombies a love spell gone awry and a voodoo priestess Not to mention an FBI agent on Garnet's trail and a car chaseI look forward to reading and am continuing to enjoy the narration A good series for audio
