Book Description

Sept. 1 2009 A Southern Witch Novel (Book 2)
Welcome to Duvall, Texas, where new witch Tammy Jo Trask has just unleashed an accidental Armageddon…Oops.

Tammy Jo’s misfiring magic has attracted the unwanted attention of WAM, the World Association of Magic. Now, a wand-wielding wizard and a menacing fire warlock have come to Duvall to train her for a dangerous mandatory challenge. But is there more to their arrival than they claim?

When a curse leads to a toxic spill of pixie dust, the town comes unglued and the doors between the human and faery worlds begin to open. To rescue the town and to face the impossible magical test, Tammy needs the help of incredibly handsome Bryn Lyons, but WAM has declared him totally off-limits. To avoid deadly consequences, Tammy probably ought to follow the rules this time.

On the other hand, rebellion is an old Texas tradition

5.0 out of 5 stars Southern Witch, Book Two Sept. 1 2009
By Detra Fitch TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Tamara "Tammy Jo" Trask wants nothing more than to be a normal pastry chef. But last week she had to spell-cast due to werewolves (Book One / Would-Be Witch). Once she cast a spell the World Association of Magic (WAM) classified Tammy Jo as a witch and she unwillingly became subject to the laws of magic. Therefore, this week Tammy Jo's life is chaos again. WAM sends two representatives to help prepare Tammy Jo for her mandatory Initial Challenge. Should Tammy Jo refuse to take it or fail, she will face imprisonment or death. The biggest problem is that Tammy Jo cannot control her magic. But it is also strange that the Conclave has sent a wand-wielding wizard and a Class Eight fire warlock that is often used as a hit man. Not only does the magical hit man hate Tammy Jo instantly, but he claims that Mercutio (Tammy Jo's ocelot) belongs to him and he wants Merc back. Not if Merc or Tammy Jo has anything to say about it!

When a curse leads to a huge spill of pixie dust, the town goes wild. All the citizens are acting insane. Add to this that nature is growing so rapidly that vines are wrapping around vehicles and people. Tammy Jo needs the help of sinfully handsome Bryn Lyons, but WAM has declared him off-limits to her. He is not even allowed to help train her for the upcoming challenge. Her ex-husband, Zach, refuses to believe the things he saw last week had been real. So the cute deputy sheriff is in her way. Welcome to Duvall, Texas.

***** FIVE STARS! Forget everything you know about witches having warts on their noses and being evil. Forget everything you believe about faeries being tiny, full of sweetness, and darting about on dainty wings. You do not really know anything about witches and all your romantic childhood beliefs of faeries are false.

Kimberly Frost's Southern Witch series is destined for great things. Full of action, suspense, romance and humor, this story had me hooked from the first page until the last. If book one was "last week" and this book is "this week", then I simply cannot wait to see what will happen "next week" in Tammy Jo's life. Downright mystical! *****

4.0 out of 5 stars I love this series! Sept. 27 2009
By Lori - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Just when you think Tammy Jo can't get into any more trouble, she does! What a fun series! I loved Would-Be Witch with all its southern charm. It made me feel right at home. Kimberly Frost wrote a equally great follow-up.

All the characters are wonderful. Tammy Jo is just the right amount of funny and she can sure win you over with all her desserts. Bryn can win your heart over in an instant and still make you question what his motives are. And how can you go wrong with a super cat that defends you and can understand what you are saying!

If you are in the mood for a feel good funny series, which I was after Catching Fire, this is the series for you. How can you go wrong with Texas sized magic, Texas sized cats, and Texas men?

Witch Tammy Jo Trask can't control her magic, and that has brought her to the attention of WAM, the World Association of Magic. They plan to test her abilities, and if she fails, well, things won't turn out well for her. To help her prepare they've sent Jordan Perth, who brings along fire witch Incendio Maldaron. Even though Tammy Jo knows that losing this challenge may cost her her life, she has bigger fish to fry.

She's accidentally let loose pixie dust, which sets the town of Duvall, Texas, on its ears, making everyone do crazy things. Tammy Jo's not sure what to do about things. Despite warnings from WAM to stay away from him, she seeks advice from attorney and witch Bryn Lyons, which puts both of them in danger.

Tammy Jo is attracted to Bryn, but there's always those feelings she still has for her ex-husband, Zach, who doesn't believe in the magical stuff but wants to keep his ex-wife by his side.

Tammy Jo has to figure out a way to gather the pixie dust to set things in town to right, and keep from being vaporized by WAM. Can she put things to right, or will Duvall be blown off the map?

Kimberly Frost's Southern Witch series is a mixture of magic and romance that keeps me laughing. Barely Bewitched, the second book, focuses more on the magical part rather than the romance, but I still found it very entertaining. The action is continual and the situations go from bad to worse for Tammy Jo and her town.

One of the things I love about this series is Tammy Jo's spunk and her ability to face anything and not back down. She is her own woman and faces her challenges head on.

I loved the way Ms. Frost wove in new elements to the series, which kept me turning the pages and wondering exactly what was going to happen next. The ending put a smile on my face and made me wish I had to make Tammy Jo's decisions.

Barely Bewitched is full of sexual tension, magical mayhem and goes from one crazy situation to another. All of this combines to provide a fun read that kept me entertained and left me wanting more.

By Arthur W. Jordin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Barely Bewitched (2009) is the second urban Fantasy novel in the Southern Witch series, following Would-Be Witch.

In the previous volume, Jenna decided that she didn't like a bridal cake. It had too much gray icing and not enough pink. She suggested that a discount might change her mind.

Tammy said take or leave it. Jenna called Tammy's boss and explained her version of the situation. The boss tells Tammy to sell it to Jenna at a discount or she's fired.

Tammy took option B. She charged Jenna for a sheet cake, but kept the more expensive one. Tammy wished she could give Jenna a permanent case of hiccups.

Tammy took the cake of dispute home with her. She was distracted at having to find another job. Then Edie showed up in the passenger seat. Tammy was startled and rammed her car into a Cadillac.

In this novel, Tamara Jo Trask is the daughter of a witch family. Her mother and aunt have been out of town for a while. Meanwhile, Tammy wishes that she had magical talents.

Jenna Reitgarten is Tammy's worst enemy. They have despised each other since elementary school.

Edie is the ghost of Tammy's great-great-grand aunt. She dwells in the locket that Tammy always wears.

Zackary Taylor Sutton is Tammy's ex-husband. She divorced him, but still loves him. She just can't stay with him for very long before he irritates her into leaving. He doesn't believe in ghosts or magic.

Bryn Lyons is a very rich lawyer in Duvall. He and his father Lennox live in a mansion just outside town. They are both wizards.

Jenson is Bryn's butler. He seems to believe that Tammy and Bryn should be a couple.

Jordan Perth is a wizard in the World Association of Magic.

Incendio Maldaron is a level 8 fire wizard.

Mercutio is Tammy's cat. He is an ocelot.

In this story, Tammy is planning to burglarize Jenna's house to get the jewelry back. Edie promises to be the lookout. Then Jordan knocks on Tammy's door.

He presents her with a sealed parchment from WAM. He and Incendio will instruct Tammy in the magic necessary to pass the Initial Challenge. If Tammy does not pass the exam or refuses to take it, she is likely to be killed.

After Tammy slams the door in Jordan's face, she returns to making pastries for her former boss. Then she hears a knock on her door. She think it is Jordan again, but Bryn stands on her doorstep.

He says hello to Mercutio. He has come by to ask her for a favor. Mr. Jenson wants her to prepare pastries for a party. Tammy says she will think about it.

While they are talking, Zach knocks on her door. He is taking some steaks and beer to his brother's house and wants Tammy to accompany him. Bryn shows up behind Tammy and Zach gets angry. Bryn reminds her of the party pastries and leaves the house.

Tammy tells Zach that she is not leaving the house. He put the beer in her refrigerator and starts grilling the steaks. When he starts watching ESPN on her TV, Tammy packs a few thing and climbs out her bedroom window.

After she reaches the Yellow Rose Inn, she meets Incendio coming out the door. He claims Mercutio belongs to him. Mercutio climbs the nearest tree and Incendio burns a limb to make him come down.

Incendio tells Tammy to make Mercutio come down. She explains that he is a free soul and only belongs to himself. Incendio tells Mercutio that he stays when Tammy leaves. Then he drives off on his Harley.

In the bar, Jordan asks her about the four elements and Tammy says Wind, Water, Earth and Fire. Jordan says he is proficient in Wind and Water and that Incendio is strong in Fire. Then he tells her to come back the next morning.

WAM had warned Tammy to stay away from Bryn. So Tammy and Mercutio head for the docks and go downstream in a paddle boat. The current almost takes them by Bryn pier, but Merc jumps over and pulls the paddle boat into the dock.

Bryn comes out to see what is going on and finds them on his dock. He acts cold to her, but she explains the circumstance. They discuss the Initial Challenge.

After Tammy kisses Bryn, he begins to see Edie. He is sharing Tammy's magic. But the vision fades as Tammy and Edie talk.

This tale puts Tammy into a terrible mess. She has to learn to use her magic to stop the town from partying to death. She also need to save Bryn. And Mercutio has vanished.

Tammy discovers that she is half faery. Her mixed blood is interfering with both kinds of magic. Then she finds out that Bryn is a quarter selkie. They are both half breeds and WAM kills the half-bred.

Tammy is still in trouble with WAM and the fae. The next installment in this sequence is Halfway Hexed.

Highly recommended for Frost fans and for anyone else who enjoys tales of various magics, magical politics, and twisted romance. Read and enjoy!
