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 fiancé 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!
