Hexing with a Chance of Tornados
Grimm Cove #2

(9 April 2017)
A storm is brewing and so is a budding romance.I've been told I'm a force to be reckoned with. That I blow onto the scene like a tornado. I've stopped caring if that's a compliment or a dig. Now I just wear it like a badge of honor. So when life threw me a curveball and I ended up going from a cushy job in New York City to the tiny Southern town of Grimm Cove, I thought I was ready for anything.Ha! Not quite.You see, Grimm Cove is teeming with supernaturals. And since I've known they exist for a hot minute, I'm still in a state of total shock. When I learn that I come from a long line of witches and demon slayers, the stakes (pun intended) get even higher and sharper.These monsters aren't make-believe. They're out for blood.I'm trying to decide if having the alpha of the local wolf-shifter pack nipping at my heels is an asset in this fight, or if he's one more person I need to watch my back around. I just wish he wasn't so sexy and didn't smell so good. He'd be a lot easier to resist. I have enough going on in my life as it is. I really do not have time for all this fated mate crap everyone keeps telling me about. My head and heart are at war and now isn't the time for distractions, especially since it's painfully clear that something evil wants me dead.
A town full of supernaturals is Grimm Cove and a bit of shock for our narrator, Dana, especially when she finds out her own lineage – with witches and demon slayers hiding in there. Jeffrey is our hero – he’d been in the military – a lot of wolf shifters/werewolves and other strong supernaturals tend to end up in it as it is a good outlet for the more youthful energy and need to chase! Now in Grimm Cove, Jeffrey was the pack Alpha and as wolves were the largest supers in the area, he tended to be the go-to person in the area.
The Van Helsings are demon slayers of course – and not the type of people that wolves make friends of. And then there’s Gilbert – a deer shifter – again not the type of friend for a wolf especially when he got drunk or went into Rut.
Dana had a best friend, Poppy, who had been married and now was going through a nasty divorce and wanted to go back to her hometown to recuperate. Which just happened to be Grimm’s Cove. And then there was Marcy, Dana’s father’s friend – a little flaky? Together they all move back to share the house left to Poppy by her grandmother and there the romances begin -Fated Mates turning up to give the romance element.
This was a fun story and Mandy writes in a good chick lit style. Within the series about Grimm Cove all 3 girls find romance but at present, only 3 of a 5-book series are published Book 3 is Marcy’s story – see later review.
