This book is part of a series set in the magical town of Everlasting where paranormals go about their daily business and nothing is normal. What makes this concept even more fun is the fact that each book is written by a different author. Yes these are quite lighthearted stories with romance but there's also a mystery to solve that will keep readers guessing right up until the big reveal.
It took me a while to fully warm to Anna if honest as I initially found her a little abrasive but I cannot sa

4 Star review of Fooled Around and Spelled (The Happily Everlasting Series #3) by Michelle M Pillow
Audio Review:

Michelle M Pillow is a new author to me as is the narrator B.J. Harrison and I have no idea why that is. It’s a cozy mystery set in Everlasting, Maine (love the name) and one that I found enjoyable.
There are twists, turns and surprises in Fooled Around and Spelled as Anna Crawford buries her head in the sand as she tries to deny her paranormal abilities and focus on running Witch's Br

“You son-of-a-biscuit bacon-loving daisy head!”

I just adore this series. It’s like a seventy-something summer day laying in the grass with your puppy watching little tufts of clouds float past - a wonderful escape from reality in a pleasant, eccentric town stuffed with magnificent (supernatural) characters. The main characters (in this case, Anna) are totally likeable, the love interests (Jackson) are wonderful, and the story is satisfying without the edge of unnecessary angst that ruins so many

Fooled Around and Spelled in Love by Michelle M Pillow

3rd of the Everlasting series. Different authors connected by a town of paranormals and characters within. Part lite mystery, part romance. Fully enjoyable. Can be read as a stand alone.
A witch and a journalist investigate a mysterious death with the help of a magical camera. But can that antique be trusted?

This is book 3 in the series. This is an excellent thrilling story with a touch of mystery!




























Anna Crawford owner/operator of Witch's Brew Coffee Shop & Bakery feels like she's being pulled in 50 different directions so far she has been able to manage but when a dear friend dies suddenly Anna feels like something isn't right.
Jackson is on assignment to cover the cranberry festival but when someone dies basically in front of him he decides to look into the death even though the police have ruled it

Everlasting is a perfectly normal town if you are supernatural. Anna runs a bakery and works full time and keeping her aunt out of trouble. When her close friend Gary dies she will team up reluctantly with the new guy in town. Jackson is a reporter and he really wants to get to know Anna better. Working together will definitely bring some sparks. Now if only Anna could trust her heart and her aunt. This was my first read by this author and it was a hit with me!

It was a good book. It had romance magic and lots of suspense . I did not know who the killer was until the end and I'm usually pretty good at figuring it out which was a plus for me.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Murder and romance. Quirky and interesting characters. A lovely cozy mystery that is a bit more serious than previous stories about the people in Everlasting. The hero Anna, is a witch that refuses to use her powers. Jackson is there to get a story. Together they work to solve the murder while developing feelings for each other. Sweetly romantic with a satisfying mystery.

So much fun!

Where there’s Aunt Polly, there are gnomes, there is crazy, and there is a lot of fun!

And this official first appearance from the crazy witch is what started it all.

Add to that the wonderful Anna, the extremely hot and charming Jackson, and everyone in Everlasting, throw in a mystery to solve, and you’re in for a wonderful treat.

What did you say, weren’t we talking about scones?

Fooled Around and Spelled in Love by Michelle M. Pillow is the third book in the Happily Everlasting Series, each story is written by one of the four authors. The story takes place in Everlasting, Maine a small town along the coast, “where there’s no such thing as normal.” I found this book not as funny as the last one, but I liked the mystery a little better.

The town of Everlasting, Maine continues to grow on me. This story starts with the death

Do I look like a damsel in distress? When I kiss you, it does feel magical. You call it magic, I call it chemistry. Something, or someone, wanted me to be here. you should pay attention.

This is the 3rd book in the Happily Everlasting World series by 3 authors Michelle Pillow, Jana Deleone and Mandy M. Roth. I surprised myself because I absolutely loved this G-rated paranormal romance. As much as I enjoyed Roth's contributions to the series I think this book is better.

As will all my reviews there are no huge spoilers and no real story recap. This is one of four books, all written by different authors, taking place in the town of Everlasting. I have read (and reviewed) all four books and there is no particular reading order while you may find secondary people from other books in this one there is no hint that the other stories are going on in the same town, however the time line becomes more noticeable in this book than any of the others. Each book is self-con ...more

This was another great book in the series and further development of the world and the characters in Everlasting. The book is fabulously written and the story seamlessly weaves in some of the characters and events from the previous books.
The main characters are Anna, a witch in denial, and Jackson, an investigative journalist who returns to Everlasting after many years of being away. Anna is the owner of Witch’s Brew Coffee Shop and Bakery, a place where everyone goes and the place well known by

A little (possible) murder. A little mayhem (Thanks, Aunt Polly!). A little romance above the coffee shop. Oh, and a possibly cursed camera that could or could not be lying through pictures. Because curses like to confuse and confuzzle, don't they?

Anna is a witch who doesn't use her magic. Jackson is a reporter who has a very useful to his job skill set. She doesn't trust what she's feeling thanks to Polly's past misguided attempts at meddling in her love life. He...well, Jackson trusts his feel

Everlasting was filled with humans and those with special powers. Anna chose to ignore her powers, unlike her aunt. Anna's bake shop was the hot spot for coffee and yummy treats, especially during the Cranberry Festival.
Jackson thought he'd never come back to his hometown and the memories he tried to ignore. Yet, here he was, doing a story on the festival. That was another thing. He wrote hard news not feel good small town holidays. He had taken the assignment though, so he'd see it through. Me

Fooled Around and Spelled In Love is book 3 in The Happily Everlasting Series of cozy mysteries and the first by Michelle Pillow in the series. If you've ever read a book by Mrs. Pillow, you know she tends toward the fun and funny. She did not disappoint with this one.

As with Once Hunted Twice Shy, this book balances mystery with romance and adventure pretty evenly. I've seen a few reviews that criticized these two for being less than the first in the series, but my guess it's people who don't a

While I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first two, it is still a really good book.

I had a hard time warming up to Anna. She's standoffish and I never really understood why she was so against magic. Same with her love interest, Jackson. His magical abilities were kind of odd.

Their romance seemed to sputter and then start back up to sputter again. The payoff felt almost rushed and forced. I do think more time needed to be devoted to developing these two characters and their romance.

I enjoyed the mystery and the townsfolk, especially Jackson and Anna's relationship. Plus Polly was an absolute joy. I struggled a little with the overall details of the mystery. First with Jackson, I didn't feel strongly about why he was in town and why he was searching out Anna. Anna was a wonderful niece and it was fabulous how she loved and dealt with Polly. It was intriguing to watch Anna as a non-practicing witch. The role of Anna's pictures in solving the mystery was a little spooky and I ...more

Anna is a witch who has repressed her witchiness for all her adult life having witnessed the damage that spells can throw back. She was raised by her Aunt Polly in Everlasting, a small town full of supernaturals and has even been the victim of her well meant, wacky aunt, which is why she is so reserved when it comes to relationships.

I've enjoyed this series so far, and this book is no exception. This is the third book in the Happily Everlasting series, a set of cozy paranormal mysteries, each written by a different author with the same town and many of the same characters in common.
