Never in my thirty years did I think my new normal would be a gig as a soul collector’s assistant—slave really—where I help stockpile souls from the miserable mortals who sell them to him. The demon thinks he can control me, but I plan on doing things differently… my way. But we all know it’s never that easy or that simple, especially in my life.
Surprisingly, things get off to a good start. Who am I kidding? The job doesn’t pan out to be what I first thought. It’s worse. Way worse. And before I know it, I’m in hot water with no easy way out.
If that isn’t bad enough, the soul collector is hiding something from me that could make or break the deal I made with him. Something, if found out, that could change everything…
It’s time to yank up my big girl panties, chuck down some wine, and do things my way. If it doesn’t kill me first.
If you like fast-paced urban fantasy adventure with a kick-butt heroine and plenty of action, suspense, and humor, you’ll love Practical Hexes.
As with any series, it is best to listen to the Witches of Hollow Cove in the order of their release. In the last novel, Tessa made a deal with a soul catcher. She agreed to work for him collecting souls. Only doing so has horrific consequences. Just a piece of advice… always read the contract before you sign it.
I’ve enjoyed the audiobooks in this series, and each one is better than its predecessors. Tessa gets herself in trouble, but I love that it’s because she is looking out for others. Her Aunts don’t have a potion to solve this, and she might not get the guy, but I have confidence she’ll figure things out… even if it brings more trouble.
We get to know Tessa’s father a little more as they look for solutions. The soul catcher is hiding something and the ride to discover it was thrilling. I like that the current issue is resolved and the overall story arc is strengthened. Tessa is a Merlin and has some unique abilities with each installment she strengthens them.
We meet new characters and Tessa gains some allies, as she must complete a mission to save herself and some furry friends. The secondary characters are a hoot and I chuckling at them, but Tessa steals the show.
Fans of small-towns and paranormal fantasy with cozy mystery vibes will enjoy the Witches of Hollow Cove. I recommend grabbing the audiobooks. This is the perfect format for them, and Devon Sorvari’s performance is outstanding. Each character is given a voice that fits their personality bring them to life.
