I was never one to resist a good witchy read and when I discovered the first book in this series I couldn't wait to dive in. I loved it so much that it didn't take me long to pick up the second installment and fall in love all over again with Tammy Jo, Bryn and Zach.

This series is such a fun one. Throw in some magical mayhem more often than not, a mystery, good ole southern charm, that small town feel and two irresistible guys and it is no wonder I was hooked after the first book.

Another magical installment in the Southern Witch novel by Kimberly Frost!

If you've read "Would-Be Witch" and "Barely Bewitched" then I know your begging to get your hands on Halfways Hexed. So, when Kimberly told me she would be sending me an ARC copy to review, I couldn't contain my squeel of delight!

"Halfway Hexed" takes up four days after "Barely Bewitched" ended. If you haven't read the first two installments, then it's best you do before you read this novel. They novels aren't stand alon

Halfway Hexed by Kimberly Frost
Paranormal Romance -Feb 1st, 2011
4 stars

Halfway Hexed is the third installment in Kimberly Frost’s South Witch series. This third book should not be missed, especially if you are a fan. Because the author answers many questions and reveals more about Tammy Jo and her outrageous family that have been culminating since the first novel.

Tammy Jo has decided to start seriously using her magic. But because she is half Fae and half witch her magic doesn’t always work as
The Flooze

I’m annoyed.

The Southern Witch novels are of the rollicking, fast-paced sort. They’re filled with thinly-explained magic, strange townspeople, and countless secrets. Halfway Hexed (the last installment?) is more of the same, but this time the mayhem lacks the inherent charm that elevated the first two books from pure silliness to decent entertainment.

Frost does address those many secrets, for which I am grateful. The prophesy is revealed, the McKennas’ lies are uncovered, and we even get

Another bewitching installment in the Southern Witch series!

Pastry chef and newbie witch Tammy Jo is back and wastes no time getting herself into trouble! First she's kidnapped and accused of witchcraft by the religious fanatics in her town of Duvall, Texas. She then receives a mysterious brooch that continues to plaugue her with visions of a woman she's never met. As if that wasn't enough, she's now under investigation by WAM-the World Association of Magic and the only person that can help her

I LOVED this. I'm enjoying this series so much. In this book, I'm glad Tamara has some time with Bryn, finally. And that Zach is out of town. He supports her, accepts her and whatever she wishes to do. I'd say more but I don't want to be too spoilery.

This does remind me a bit of the Sookie Stackhouse books in that it's a small town with quirky characters, set in the south, with supernatural shenanigans which the general public is rather clueless. There is a love triangle. The action is pretty no

I'll give this book credit for being pretty darn cute. Tammy Jo is just a sweet, likable woman you can't help but get behind. She's nice, but isn't afraid to get down and dirty when the situation calls for it. (And she's a crack shot, which is something I always appreciate.)

There was no Zach in this one, so the book focused on Bryn and Tammy Jo. For most of the book, Tammy Jo was still doing the whole "I can't be with him because of this mysterious family list that says his family is bad" thing,

I love Tammy Jo and Bryn, what a couple of witches they are or aren't. LOL Trouble seems to follow them around, Tammy Jo just wants to avoid contact with him because of some ancient prophecy of doom involving the two of them. She just can't seem to stay away, everything leads her back to his side. A strange locket shows up with ties to her family. She is hunted by some nasty Southern Church women trying to expel the evil witch, chased and shot at by a scar faced man, and has to face the magical ...more

On en apprend plus aussi sur la famille de Tamara : sa tante, sa mère ou encore quelques autres membres de sa famille qu'elle se connaissait même pas. Tammy va essayer de découvrir la vérité sur la prophétie qui l'emp

And this one is even better than the last (Barely Bewitched). The action is more... actiony and it is exactly the right time to get the details of the family prophecy that has been trying to separate Bryn and Tammy Jo since the beginning. And, bonus, we get more details of Bryn's past as well.

And again, my favorite part of these books is how well Frost depicts a strong Texas girl—well-mannered, unashamed of being a girl, but willing to stand up for herself and friends. Tammy Jo's character just

The third installment of Kimberly Frost's Southern Witch series is by far the best in the series to date. The author really comes into her writing in this novel. Many loose ends are tied up, but more holes are still left to be filled by more installments.

In Halfway Hexed, not only is Tammy Jo being stalked by a group of townspeople that think she is a witch, but the WAM is also back to try to woo her over to their side of the world. She and Bryn again join their magic together to fight the forc
I just LOVE that book, this author, this story, the charaters, the suspens, the universe and pretty much everything that's in there xD

Ok, so Bryn is growing on me. Of course it helped that Zach was MIA. Bryn was really sweet, (view spoiler).

So, Tammy, you were only kissing Bryn to increase the magic. Uh-huh. Yeah sure...

Halfway Hexed takes place only four days after Tammy Jo was almost incinerated and drowned during the events in Barely Bewitched. But, she's "hopeful that {she} could balance {her} new life as a witch with {her} old life as a pastry chef." In fact, she's accepted her first pastry commission, for the Texas Friends of Fish and Fowl, to create a chocolate sculpture for their centerpiece. Sounds normal enough. No sweat, right? No such luck!

See, Tammy Jo is a trouble magnet! She's a tough cookie th

Oh WOW, I cannot believe how long it took me to finish this book. I have not done any other reading during the past 2.5 months since I started it. I had a lot of schoolwork and was all caught up in watching (and finishing!) Dawson's Creek in my free time. So I think the fact that it took so long played a large role in how much I enjoyed the book.

I liked it, just like I liked the others. I really enjoy Tammy Jo, and I absolutely LOVE all scenes between Tammy Jo and Bryn. This book was especially

The third installment in the Southern Witches series brings us back to Duvall, Texas with Tammy Jo Trask, pastry chef and late-blooming witch. Still recovering from battling the fairies and werewolves, she is trying to focus on her 'normal' life and her career while avoiding the oh-so-sexy Bryn Lyons. Of course, ever since her magic started emerging, things rarely turn out like Tammy Jo plans.

Things in Duvall are a bit crazy. It seems that some of the townspeople that Tammy Jo helped during the

Halfway Hexed is the third novel in the Southern Witch series that is the best one of the three. Kimberly gives us so much that we have been wanting to read in this 3rd installment. Now we get many answers but Oh boy does Kimberly leave it open at the end for a possible book 4. The magic, humor and mystery is so captivating and so well written. Whats my favorite part, of course the way Kimberly writes the main character humorous side. You are actually laughing out loud plenty of times. This seri ...more

This is my favorite book in the series so far. The plot was more concentrated, focus on the Tammy Jo, Bryn, Tammy Jo's family and the investigation from the WAM president, John Barrett. Tammy fued with Jenna continues and gets pretty ugly.

This third installment of Kimberly Frost's Southern Witch series is the best in the series ~ at least, that's my opinion in the matter... A hilariously fun & easy read. There's a bit more action in this novel than the previous, so things are a little more fast-paced.. but it is definitely funnier!

Tammy Jo is probably one of my new favorite witches. Of course she's no Rachel Morgan but Tammy Jo is definitely a brand of witch all her own! I love her spunk & feisty attitude.

This book was a whole lotta crazy and in a good way! Some in the town suspect she is a witch, which leads to them creating a group that is out to get her. In the course of the book they attempt to kidnap her, shot her, run her off the road, and most of these more than once. These people are like rapid dogs, but Tammy Jo manages to best them all the time.

We also have the magic counsel coming to talk to Bryn and Tammy Jo about their past action from the last 2 books. You know something is off with

I recently read your Southern Witch series. I had picked up this book randomly from the library but boy was I glad I did. To be absolutely honest I didn't think the Would be Witch was as good as the 2nd & 3rd ones. But Would-be Witch kindled enough of my interest to pick up the 2nd one. Barely Bewitched had me hooked & with Halfway Hexed, I was totally Hexed :) in a good way.

In much the same vein as the first 2 books I some how found myself enjoying it less and that is because I no longer like Tammy Jo as much. Mostly due to her treatment of Bryn. I initially understood why she was torn between Zach & Bryn but after her actions in this book I no longer respect her. She uses Bryn, demands stuff from him, tells him they can't be together, repeatedly has sex with, tells him they can't be together cause she promised Zach she wouldn't choose til Zach was back in town ...more

2.5 stars. I found the first 1/2 to 2/3 of the book rather chaotic and jumpy, and found myself putting it down several times. But I hate to let a book go unread, so I plowed through. It did get a *bit* better in the last 1/3. Some mysteries were revealed, although the big reveal seemed rather rushed, almost as an afterthought. And there was almost too much action: (view spoiler) ...more

I won this from a Goodreads First Reads giveaway! This is the best book of the series, so far. It has drama of biblical proportions. Literally. There were frogs and locusts, day turning to night, an almost-flooded get the picture. And it was so very entertaining! There's rarely a moment to catch your breath before Tamara is caught up in something else. I remember a fleeting thought when I read the first book of how someone who likes the Sookie Stackhouse books would like these, even t ...more

I am loving this series... Tammy Jo is just such a fun and unpredictable character... with the way her powers are growing and changing in ways that other witches don't expect makes it exciting... and I love how Merc has become such an essential character himself... it makes Tammy both eccentric and smart enough to listen to good advice no matter who it's coming from... plus finally getting to figure out more about the warning against the Lyons family... as well as finding out more about her own ...more
CJ - It's only a Paper Moon

If you're a fan of these series, this one is a must. Tammy is growing up and taking things with a bit more stride than she did at first.

Zach wasn't in this book and for that I can't be upset about that. It was a Bryn and Tammy book. We learned more about their families, their feelings and what their powers can do.

Also, I have never been so happy to see a decanter of alcohol.

At turns sweet and sexy, this book is just right for those that want a light summer read with magic and mayhem.

Poor Tammy Jo just can't seem to catch a break! This book explodes with action just like the first two in the series. It also reveals answers to questions readers have from the first two and kind of dangles a little more. It was a riveting page turner of a book! I appreciate the down to earth kick butt mentality Tammy Jo has. The world can be falling around and she doesn't take time to plan or strategize; she just takes action.

I love this series but probably because of Merc, he reminds me of my bengal as they both seem to have a serious amount of attitude!

I also preferred this book over the others as I'll be honest and say I hated Zach as a character so was glad he wasn't really in it.

The story was good, I loved the twists and turns as always and how Tammy has grown across the 3 books. Got to love Bryn as well, he is my type of male lead!

Great book, fantastic author and I'll be honest and say if this is the end of the
