I *loved* reading this story!! Life's a Witch introduces us to Amber, someone in major need of some xanax at times. Amber was raised by a very religious woman who constantly put her down. She grew up thinking everything about her was evil, even something as silly as her red hair. One day, Amber receives a strange book with a gemstone set in the cover and addressed to some Amber. This book contains spells; it can't possibly be meant for her! A strange man shows up and begins paying her attention, ...more

A Great New Beginning To An Awesome Endeavor Of A Series!

This series must be read in order. This is the first book.

This book was an awesome start to a new series :D I was really excited about it from the moment I first heard of it... If any group of authors can pull off a collaborative series its is these three talented ladies. There are triplets... separated at toddler age and sent to three different homes after their mother dies. They are brought up in ignorance of their true origins in the Ma

This book is short and sweet. Just wish the book was a longer. This is the first book in a series about three sisters who are triplets. They where separated at a young age and doesn't know that the other sisters exist. This book is about Amber who discovers that she is a witch on her birthday when a book mysteriously appears in her apartment. If you like a cute paranormal book with magic, mystery and romance then this book is for you. I can't wait to read the other books in this series.

I usually don't like novellas because they don't allow time for the characters and story to develop. This was no exception. It probably would have been four or five stars as a book, but having boy meet girl and wham! - instant relationship - just doesn't come across as believable to me. I also wanted to know more about the magic aspect and I would have preferred Amber to be a little tougher and not so weak. I haven't checked, but if this author has a full length novel, I would probably give it a ...more

I finished the book but just barely. It just was not that good. The plot was not straight forward and it appears it was going all over the place. It couldn't keep my interest. I will not read the rest of this series.

This series is written by three different writers. Book one is by Elizabeth Reeves. I enjoyed reading about Amber and her discovery of a letter stating she has magical powers and two sisters. Her discovery changes her life for the better. I am waiting for book two which will be out soon.

Interesting start

So this series has been one I have been keeping an eye on for a while. It started interestingly but feels a little short,the characters grow on you. There is mention throughout of dangerous forces but you don’t see much danger this book. It os definitely a series I am looking forward to continuing as there are many good ideas that I hope will play out well.

Good read. Just needed it to be a longer story. Great characters. Like the doctor ghost.

First reviewed at Keeper Bookshelf

Karma’s Witches is a series written by three authors. At this date there are six novels – so two sets so far. The series is fun, lighthearted and quirky. Exactly what I was looking to find for this Halloween Romance marathon of mine. These are novellas, very short so there is a lot of story packed into each one. I would strongly recommend reading them in order as they tell a tale with three parts to make an overall story, in a way told from three viewpoints. No

I wanted a change of genre. I am not into witches light reads but I have not been reading for a long time and I needed something not too taxing to my brain.
The plot: Amber does not know she is a witch. She does not know she has sisters. She does not know she is part of triplets. She was raised by an evil mum. This book is Amber's story, told from Amber's point of view.
Nothing spooky though and there are a quite a few annoying cliches and dialogues. The thing is, Amber's character could have be

. One day a book mysteriously appears along with a letter from her mother who apologizes for splitting up her and her sisters. She instructs her to read aloud the first spell in the book because she is a witch. When she does, she can hear her cat speak, then she starts to see ghosts.
What really excited me about these stories is a group of authors got together and each write a book. From what I gather the first

Amber was always taught not to trust strangers or police. To her surprise she learns she was kidnapped as a young child from foster care and is actually one of a set of triplets. She also learns she is a hereditary witch and must find her sisters. As she develops a relationship with a hot sexy cop and can see ghosts, Amber is unsure of herself and how to find her sisters.
This should be an interesting series of novellas written by three separate authors. Amber's story is interesting and fun to r

Life's a Witch by Elizabeth A.Reeves is the first in a series about three sisters,triplets, who separated at a young age. Neither sister knows about the other one. In Life's a Witch we find Amber as she discovers she is not who she thought she was her entire life. I don't want to tell too much and give all the book away. If you like books with magic,mystery,romance and everything that goes along with it then this novella is for you.

I liked the quick and to the point!

This book about witches and karma was very engaging. With a quick to the point storyline you do not get bored. The backstory for the main character Amber sets up the whole book with a variety of characters including a ghost,cop boyfriend, cat and estranged family. Just when your really into it the Author winds this up sweetly and you ready for more!

Solid 3.5 rating. Disappointed that this wasn't longer, but I enjoyed story.

It was pretty well written for everything they had to get out about the characters, overall situation, and the story for Amber for this particular book. The rhythm was smooth, easy to follow, and with just enough of an ending that left you satisfied yet wanting more at the same time.

I absolutely love Elizabeth A. Reeves books.....short or long! It makes no difference to me the length of a book as long as I am entertained by interesting characters, which I was in this installment. I will, of course, search out the next two books so I can have the full story on these triplet witch sisters.

Fun short story setting off the series of the Witches of Karma. Since it is short there is not a lot of character development, but I am interested in reading more about the three sisters. Amber discovers she is rich and can see ghosts. During her discovery about herself she learns she has 2 other sisters and was kidnapped as a child, she also meets a man that wants to be a part of her life.

Interesting, but very short

I didn't realize this was a very short story. It began well and looks like it could be a fun read if it ever grows into a longer book. I do plan to read the next installment before deciding yea or nay as #1 is too short to decide if the series is one I would read.

With only 100 pages it is hard to call this a book. It is more of a novella and a very poor start to a series. The writing seemed rushed and the characters not fully developed. Everything happened way to fast without any real plot or plot development. I had hoped for more but I just can't like the book/novella the way it is.

I like the book, it was nice. I loved the title and the cover. It was a short for my taste but it's worth it. I like the different authors bit. It's a interesting idea, I hope they pull off well!

This is the first book I have read by Elizabeth A. Reeves and now I am a fan. I am also now a fan of this series. I love how realistic the story is and how exciting it is to watch it unfold. Looking forward to reading more about Amber & Geoff.

The 1st of 3 sisters find out that she is a witch and that she is a triplet. The girls were separated to keep the bad guys from finding them. As the series progresses, they find each other. I've read the first 3 books and plan to catch up with the rest. I believe there are at least 8 books now.

Great buy!

I have already stumbled upon Elizabeth Reeves' other books and have enjoyed them. For .99 you get part one in a unique set up with three different authors writing the before books for a series. I am excited to read the next one.
