I am so excited about this book. BELL, BOOK, AND SANDALS is one of the most delightful novels I’ve read lately. It’s true to both the paranormal and the chick lit genre, and readers who are looking for the next weekend read will love this.

When Maxie Duncan’s fiance dumps her, she decides it’s time for a drastic change. She moves from Maine to Hollywood, determined to live off her good looks instead of her parents’ overflowing bank accounts. But at the first audition she attempts, she gets her dr

The main character was vain, shallow, and a stereotype of the rich girl. There was absolutely no depth to this novel at all. Thankfully it was not that long, and it was a freebie.


I received this book as part of the Bewitching Book Tours in return for a honest review. Maxine is all set to marry her high school sweetheart when he sends her a text asking her to show up at their place, which she expects to be good new since it's the place he proposed, she never expected him to break up with her. After her fiance breaks up with Maxine she decides just like that it's time to move to L.A. to become a actress.

Maxine isn't prepared for what it takes to be a actress at her first a

This was a fun little story with a girl who was annoying but seemed to grow a bit. The characters were fairly real to life because I really disliked Maxie when she started acting all stuck up and that type of dislike is reserved for someone I can relate to. The story got me interested and kept me interested to the very end with a few twists I did not see coming.

Maxie is a little rich girl who thought she was going to have the perfect little rich life. Then her fiancee dumps her just weeks befor

Maxie Duncan is the typical poor-little-rich-girl. She gets dumped by her fiance for another woman. Knows how to do nothing but be arm candy, so she decides to run off to Hollywood to be an actress. Once she's there she believes she'll take the city by storm but she's really just another face in the crowd. She blows her first audition & instead of figuring out what to do to learn how to act, she has a meltdown in the hotel hallway.

This is where she meets her new BFF Evangaline. Van takes her
When I was in 2nd grade or so, I read the best book ever: No Flying in the House by Betty Brock. For her own protection, Annabel's parents had left her with only a 3 inch white dog named Gloria to keep her safe. Long story short, Belinda, an evil fairy tells Annabel she actually is a fairy and Gloria and her parents lied to her. Proof was that Annabel could kiss her elbow. Annabel could do it easily but no one else she knew could do it. So naturally, I spent the rest of childhood trying to kiss ...more

Rich and spoiled, but sweet and naive sums up Maxie Duncan nicely. She isn't ashamed of being who she is, and acknowledges her faults, but she wants to be something more than a rich man's wife. Little does she know just how much more she really is. I love other books from Melissa Webb, and the Maxie Duncan series doesn't disappoint.

Bell, Book, and Sandals a true delight!

I didn't know what to expect when I started reading this book, but it sure surprised me. A nice surprise I must say. It was very entertaining and watching this witch come into her own with the help of her new friends was something else. Just a fun and interesting read for anyone wanting some good times and some adventure too.
