HP Mallory stays on my guilty pleasures list

Something Witchy This Way Comes (Jolie Wilkins, #5)Something Witchy This Way Comes by H.P. Mallory
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once again, I am weighing in with the "guy's" opinion here. I found this to be the strongest offering of the series. Jolie did something that is, in y opinion, vital to making a series something special: She matured as a character. It can be very easy to simply write the character as a static creation that plows ahead with the same mindset in offering after offering. What makes this work is the same thing that works for Kim Harrison's characters...the character grows from life events just as a "real" person might.

This offering will satisfy most fans of the series with the events that unfold. I offer no spoilers here...that would be unfair to the fans who have invested their time in this wonderful series. What I will say is that H.P. Mallory provides closure while leaving enough here for a continuation.

If you have found this while searching for a quality read in the "paranormal romance" or "urban fantasy" category, then start at book one, Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble. You will be glad you did.
