The Witch by Gail Roughton

Ariel Anson thinks she has her life in order.  She's young, smart, and beautiful, even if she doesn't believe the beautiful part. She's a paralegal with a great career and a fianc√© who's a CPA. You just can't get any steadier than that. Then she meets private investigator, bounty hunter, process server Chad Garrett. What does War-N-Wit, Inc. stand for anyway?  Warlock and Witch? For real? Oh, yes! For real. Her life as she knows it is over!

I confess; I’m a TV addict.  My work schedule these days consists of writing, working on a clerical project for Chicon 7 (the World Sci-Fi Convention where they give out the Hugo Awards), checking e-mail, and reading for an hour or so.  I do promo on weekends.  I usually put down the book and turn on the tube around seven or so.  Not so with this book.  I worked until five, got my afternoon snack, settled into my recliner with food and Kindle, turned on my reading lamp and started reading the book.  Eventually, I needed to get up and go down the hall for something.  To my amazement, I was halfway through the book and it was dark outside.  I was starving and when I looked at the time it was going on nine p.m.  Ariel and Chad so engaged me with the suspense and antics of their on-line romance and growing connection, I had read right through the evening.  I’m a food addict and I missed supper!

If you’re looking for a book you truly can’t put down, this is it.  If you’re looking for suspense, wit, humor, fun, and more suspense, this is it.  I can’t wait for book two in the War N Wit saga!

Price:  $2.99


  1. Oh, Rochelle! I had NO IDEA you were reviewing War-N-Wit, I never expected you to!! Oh. My. Lord. Thank you so very much. I have no words. I truly don't.

  2. I couldn't put it down, either! I brought it with me everywhere until I finished it. Fortunately, I have my eReader with me at all times and I would reward myself with a 10- 15- or 55-minute read of Gail's book wherever I was for the three days it took me to finish it. War-N-Wit is not like anything I expected. It's better!! Great read and I can't wait for the follow-ups.

  3. You're very welcome, Gail. You earned those roses. I really could not put the book down.

    I review pretty much everything I read these days, whether I buy it, win it, or the author sends it to me asking for a review. One never knows when they'll show up here, unless I've reviewed them before and am waiting for the next book in the series--or my cat Acey is. When's the next Alvarez Family Murder Mystery due to come out Ms. Haven?

  4. I read this book and I completely agree with Rochelle. It was an excellent read. You have a winner here, Gail.

  5. Well, this has been a delightful, surprising Sunday morning! Thank you all! Especially you, Rochelle, it just never occurred to me with the huge volume of books we all come into contact with on a daily basis you'd pick War-N-Wit up and again, I have no words. I know you don't post reviews lightly and give your honest opinion. Wish I could put my five roses in a vase and keep 'em out in view!
