Book #4 in the Literal Leigh Romance Diaries Series

This book I did not want to put down. Had to throw that out there first and foremost. It took me just a couple of hours to read through and I cannot wait for the next book in the series. Okay with that being said this story picks up right where book #3 ended

In an earlier book it was stated that Luna was adopted at a shelter. All of a sudden she's a stray that showed up on her own? Did the writer even bother to reread what she had previously written?
These ADULTS don't seem to be able to think through actions well enough to avoid serious consequences IN THEIR OWN LIVES. It is almost insulting to my intelligence that I am to believe that Leigh can be responsible for people's CHILDREN.

And that proposal!!!!

I was given this novella for an honest review by author Melanie James. This is part 4 of a 5 part series by the author.

Halloween was soon approaching and this was the first Halloween for Leigh being a new witch and she was excited. She had lots to do with her teaching, her parents anniversary and with her new boyfriend Hunter. Things start to get out of hand when a ghost barges onto the scene.

Ghosts, witches, golems and a seance seem to bring laughs to this read. I love the character Leigh and t

That's no the only problem Leigh must face when she get the wrong message from Hunter and in a fit of anger she magically knock's his spirt out of his body.

Leigh and the madcap crew are back at it again. First, there is the hilarious Wedding Anniversary celebration for Leigh's parents. Then Leigh gets upset with her boyfriend Hunter and unknowingly unleashes some powerful mojo and the hijinks begin. There are a couple of surprises about Luna the cat and friends Kelly and Lindsey. Melanie has done it again - another hilarious story that has you rolling on the floor laughing!! I can't wait for the next one - Joyful Leigh. I just love this series.

Another winner! This is fun and funny. I loved seeing the mischief that Leigh could get into and totally loved Hunter's parents. If you're looking for an entertaining and fun book, this is it. While it is a stand alone book, you'll enjoy it more if you begin with the first in the series, Accidental Leigh.

Melanie James does it again with this book. There were times where I was laughing so hard I couldn't stop. Leigh is just wonderful. You never know what Leigh and her friends will get themselves into. Hunter Leighs boyfriend upsets her, and this is where the fun begins.

Haunting Leigh has us finally ready to go to the Halloween gala, which has been teased since book 2. But first, problems occur. It was really fun actually having Leigh doing her job as a school teacher. There's a lot of adorable scenes in the classroom before the main plot really kicks in. We get to see a lot more of the magical world in this book with spirits and mediums being the main focus. "The power of catnip compels you!" Also, is it weird that I loved seeing Leigh angry? I

Ok I have to admit my favorite part of the story was at Leah's parents anniversary party. I laughed so hard my husband gave me the look. This was a short but fun story to listen too. There is some colorful language and some sex talk. But it did not bother me at all. Cant wait to see what else Melanie James has in store for me in her other books.

Oh My!

Moon watchers, Halloween haters, Golems, Ghosts! You name it this episode had most of it. Leigh and Gertie certainly had their wands twisted this time. It all comes together better than you would imagine. Luna proves to be a true witchy cat.

I'm loving this series.

I can't wait to see what the future brings for Leigh, Hunter and the gang.

Also, can't wait to see if anything 'witchy' happens to Luna 😁👍

Once again Melanie James takes you on an amusing ride with the young rookie witch Leigh and all her friends. There is more magic and mayhem in this book and the friends all have to work together to fix the misfortunes that have bounded loose. Another light reading story in the Leigh Story.

It’s Halloween, Leigh’s favorite time of the year. As a rookie witch with high hopes, she has a lot to look forward to.
When a mysterious supernatural force meddles in her life things take a turn for the worse.

I think this might have been my favorite book in the series. Leigh and her friends are extremely excited to have learned that they are all witches, though I am not really sure what her friends can do. Leigh has decided not to do much writing at her magical desk so as to avoid any more unfortunate spells going wrong. However, Leigh learns that her magic can come from herself without the use of her desk. Luna, Leigh's cat, brings her a note from Hunter, her boyfriend who has been living with her s ...more

This series just keeps getting better and better. I would recommend you read the first three books before you start on this, the fourth book in the series. Leigh is at it again. This time she gets mad at her boyfriend and accidentally knocks him out. Only as with all things Leigh does, she doesn't knock him out, she knocks the spirit out of him and it is up to her and the rest of the crew, including Hunter's parents, to get his spirit back into his body.

Haunting Leigh is a perfect addition to the series! Hilarious and believable, if my friends and I were witches, this would be our story. I absolutely love Hunter's parents! They are totally hilarious! And of course, Gertie is always good for a laugh. I can't wait to see what happens next :-)

Haunting Leigh by Melanie James is the fourth book and is the best so far, in my opinion. I listened to the audiobook narrated by Hollie Jackson. I've said it before in the previous book reviews that Hollie Jackson does a great job in this series.

Leigh is enjoying her favorite holiday, Halloween. We get to see her in the classroom with her children and that was enjoyable and refreshing. Gertie is visiting and while with Leigh at the school they have a run-in with a vindictive school librarian. T

I enjoyed this book the best out of them all so far. This was a test to see how much love Leigh had for Hunter. The Time was against them and she had to pull all the strings to get Hunters ghost back inside of his body. This was the first book in the series that had the right genre attached. (this book did have paranormal features) I look forward to reading the next one. It was nice to read this book and there was no humour about ADHD or any other illness.

"I LOVE Leigh!"

Would you consider the audio edition of Haunting Leigh to be better than the print version?
That is a hard choice because I LOVE reading and reading about Leigh is amazing but listening to Hollie Jackson narrate and bring everything to life is even more amazing!

Who was your favorite character and why?
Leigh is always my favorite character. Leigh always has me laughing.

She did it again! Its a great story and so funny! This one is a continuation of the 1st through 3rd books in the series. Hunter and Leigh's relationship goes to the next level and I'm so happy for them. All four the new witches finally get to go to the witch's gala and have a great time... There is something even better at the end of the book and I'm so happy about it. I look forward to reading the next book.

I really love this series from Melanie James! In Haunting, Leigh and Hunter's relationship goes up another notch, so of course, Leigh's mishaps follow suit. There's some hilarious scenes, plus you can't go wrong with a paper mache golem, teachers turned into mice, a haunted house and a ghost cat. Gertie's antics also provide a lot of entertainment. This is a must read for all fans of Melanie's Accidental Leigh series!

This series is wonderful and hard to put down. The exciting journey of young witches and extended family keeps you on the edge of your seat. Melanie James makes you laugh throughout the whole book. You never know what disaster is going to happens to these "witches" next. I also can"t wait to see what disasters Leigh's friends create now that there witches too! I was happy to see Leigh write a 2nd something that turned out ok!
