Nola Leary would have been content to stay in Kilcairy, Ireland, healing villagers at her family’s clinic with a mix of magic and modern medicine. But a series of ill-timed omens and a deathbed promise to her grandmother have sent her on a quest to Half-Moon Hollow, Kentucky, to secure her family’s magical potency for the next generation. Her supernatural task? To unearth four artifacts hidden by her grandfather before a rival magical family beats her to it.

Complication One: Her grandfather was Mr. Wainwright and the artifacts are lost somewhere in what is now Jane Jameson's book shop.

Complication Two: her new neighbor, Jed Trudeau, who keeps turning up half naked at the strangest times, a distraction Nola doesn't need. And teaming up with a real-life Adonis is as dangerous as it sounds, especially when he’s got the face of an angel and the abs of a washboard—can Nola complete her mission before falling completely under his spell?

I love Molly Harper books. I always have a hard time classifying her genre because, yes, there is always romance, but at the same time there's always a lot more going on in the story than just falling in love. So, I guess you could call it chick-lit/mystery/adventure/comedy/paranormal romance. :) Okay, so all of that is a bit of a mouthful, but you get the point.

Since there was so much going on in A Witch's Handbook kept me entertain throughout.  Although, I think this edition to the Half Moon saga was missing a bit of the humor that is so obvious in previous installments. Don't be put out there are still plenty laughs to go around, but instead of literally LOLing every page it was more like every other page ;)

I've said it before and I'll say it again, if you love urban fiction, comedies, paranormal, and romance pick up Molly Harper today. I can guarantee she will become an auto-buy for you.
