What do you say you get out your best cauldron and we’ll whip up something fun.
Take one snarky witch, add a heaping cup of sexy vampire (after all you can never have too much vampire), a tablespoon of disgruntled ghost and add a dash of troublesome bunny slippers and you have a recipe for magick chaos. Or maybe not. After all, we are talking Jazz Tremaine, curse eliminator, 700 year young witch and attitude with a capital A. She’s not exactly made of spice and everything nice. More like magick and snark, but that’s what makes this recipe fun because it also includes the unexpected.
It’s a good thing that Jazz is used to multi-tasking. She has a successful curse eliminating business -- we are talking LA after all -- and working as a driver for Dweezil, a creature who can make Scrooge look like a philanthropist.
But her world is shaken up -- again. It was bad enough when a past evil intruded into her life again and she had to face that horror and destroy it. This time it’s affecting Jazz’s need for a good night’s sleep. She isn’t getting any quality sleep and a sleep-deprived witch is a cranky witch.
It’s not so much that Jazz is missing sleep; she’s had terrorizing nightmares to boot. But then, who wouldn’t be freaked out if the nightmare involved your vampire lover tearing your throat out? And it doesn’t help that Fluff and Puff are accused of eating a Wereweasel carnie, which is a death sentence, and now incarcerated in bunny slipper jai. Irma wants Jazz to find a way to give her a d look worthy of the new millennium and Dweezil is naturally demanding his share of her time. No wonder she’s cranky!
The only good thing is Jazz’s latest order of bath products and a pair of sexy crocodile stilettos named Croc and Delilah from fellow witch Thea. It’s just a shame they like to get into her make up, perfume and think human housemate Krebs is yummy.
Jazz is in a stew of magick problems that could easily overflow her cauldron. Especially when a dash of a sexy female vampire who was Nick’s ex is tossed in for some bitter flavoring and along the way Jazz ends up with the worst 48 hours of her life that no witch should endure.
The problem is figuring out what ingredients will work for this witchy stew and which ones are outdated and need to be tossed out. I’m sure you can guess which spices Jazz is ready to get rid of.
Who’s behind her nightmares? Who wants to unsettle Nick so badly with nightmares of his own that he might abandon her? Who’s setting up booby traps if she tries to track down the source and did Fluff and Puff really eat a Wereweasel even if there’s no way the bunny slippers would eat something that disgusting?
What about you? Do you see your books as an intriguing recipe with a hint of this and a pinch of that?
