It's always a sweet treat to come back to Everlasting and this time its even sweeter, with the find of Deputy Jake Majoy who is this centaur who is falling over all himself when he meets and falls head over heels for Kelsey.
Kelsey just turned 25 and her life just turned upside down. She didn’t have a job or family but she receives a locket in the mail and a bus ticket to Everlasting Maine. Kelsey figures she has nothing to lose since she has nothing holding her back. So when she is in town and D

Wow! Just Wow! I absolutely loved this terrific paranormal cozy mystery. I was hooked from beginning to end.

What can I say? I laughed and I cried, really didn't want to put it down and spent all day and most of the night reading it, (chores? what chores? they'll still be there tomorrow, and who needs sleep anyway?).

Total Eclipse of The Hunt by Mandy M Roth

A paranormal cozy mystery romance. Part of the Everlasting series, a town of paranormals.

A bit humorous in the situations and characters. Adorable hero and heroine on their reactions to each other and their instant attraction.
Good wins over evil in a rainbow of magic and gathering of friends.

“Holy guacamole, I’m like a rainbow wizard or something!”

This series keeps blowing me away. This book totally eclipsed my heart. I was so excited that one of the calendar cops got a book I never expected that in a million years! I loved all the characters and enjoyed seeing some returns of past ones. The heroines reactions to meeting Petey at the beginning were so funny. I just love Mandy Roth’s writing, she always makes me laugh.

This is the third book in the Happily Everlasting series and the second consecutive contribution by author Mandy M, Roth. I think Ms. Roth will forgive me if I say this series is not meant to be what the intellectuals call “Great Literature.” I don’t think anyone will be forcing high school or college lit. students to read these books some day in the future unless it’s a writing class and they need an example of writing that is light, fun and a quick read. It’s okay but I quite honestly didn’t c ...more

This series is just amazing! Mandy M Roth has done it again!

It grabs you from the very first page and keeps a tight grip till the very end. If you love your PNR and Mandy M Roth books, then your gonna absolutely fall head over heals in love with Everlasting. This book like the first four is a clean PNR so it leaves all the naughty bits for your imagination.

I'm not gonna go in depth about the book cause I will end up giving away too many spoilers, and ruin all the fun for you. And fun this book i

Crystal balls, moon necklaces, and magic, seriously are these people for real?

Total Eclipse of the Hunt by Mandy M. Roth is supernaturally cute cozy mystery. The little town of Everlasting, Maine is so cool. The characters that the four authors have come up with are freaking great. I enjoy the reoccurring roles of the other town folk.

And Love hits them like a brick, well Jake anyway.

Kelsey Gibbons is our female lead. She is a foster kid from Boston and truly felt like she didn’t fit in with any

This book was such a joy to read.

I liked Kelsey and Jake. They had smokin' hot chemistry and the author did a great job with their relationship. It was fun seeing Deputy March getting his story told. He caught my interest in a previous book. I would have loved to see Deputy August get his comeuppance.

The mystery was interesting and different. I was a little surprised since I kept expecting somebody else to be the bad guy. I had a sneaking suspicion about who was involved in some way but the aut

Yay! My favourite little oddball town is back with a bang!

This time around one of Sheriff Bull's calender hotties is getting his HEA. Deputy March (Jake Majoy) has been alone for a loooong time. He had given up hope on finding his mate and has been ostracised from his small clan of shifters, the Centaurs, for refusing to carry out a draconian punishment. As the police officers of the paranormal, Jake transitions into being the deputy in Everlasting.

Kelsey has also been alone for most of her life

This book was a complete surprise as it was not really announced in advance, so I considered it a special gift. Additionally, this was probably my favourite book so far. It was sweet, with a lot of suspense and it made me laugh. Jake aka Deputy March is the main male protagonist and familiar from previous books. Kelsey, the main female character, is new to Everlasting and her reactions are hilarious at times. 
I am not a huge fan of love at first sight but this one was done masterfully and the st

Deputy March (okay, okay, I know that's not his name, but the beefcake calendar thing is kinda funny and I just can't resist) gets his turn to find his lady love when Kelsey ends up in Everlasting. Seeing how it's Everlasting they're in, things go a little sideways for a while, but that doesn't stop these two from finding their HEA.

So. Our centaur deputy is...well, is just sort of is. He's not unhappy at his job (even though some of his fellow deputies aren't all that competent) and he's pleased

It starts off with the heroine, Kelsey, getting a mysterious package at home that included a bus ticket to Everlasting. All of a sudden her life, what there was of it, was pulled out from under her and there was no reason not to go and see what this turn in her life was all about.

Kelsie didn't have family, no real friends, just a job and her little-rented home. When she lost her job, got evicted and received a necklace and a bus ticket, she figured why not. It was different from the big city but she came to like it and people there. Especially one certain deputy. She really liked Will, an older man who brought her to her new place—although new was far from reality. The stories he told her were fantastic. People who were really more, like vampires, werewolves and so much ...more

This is another self-contained story placed in the town of Everlasting. The series has been created by four very talented authors. In this story by Mandy M.

As a centaur, Deputy Jake Majoy (Deputy March), is immortal and has seen and done a lot in his five hundred years. Enough to know that Everlasting feels like home. It’s been perfect for him to fade away and blend in, as the town is anything but normal—and they protect their own. So, when a newcomer ends up in their midst, at the same time magical items go missing around town, it’s his duty to step in to restore law and order. But the pull he feels to the woman is anything but part of the job.

I was really looking forward to another trip to Everlasting, Maine, so I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly the next installment came out. In this story, Kelsey Gibbons is cleverly maneuvered into moving from Boston to the small town of Everlasting. A product of the foster care system, she has always wanted to belong somewhere. Jake Majoy, aka Deputy March, is a five hundred year old centaur, one of the last of his kind. He too has found a home in Everlasting, but is flabbergasted to find h ...more

I have read and enjoyed all the books so far released in this series. I did receive this as an ARC and admit that I'm a huge fan of Mandy Roth's other works. All that to say, I love this book. This is actually now in my top 5 favorite books and will be re-read multiple times. I will try to review this without spoilers as you definately want to read this yourself.

Kelsey life conspired to send her to Everlasting, where she ended up meeting her true love.

What I enjoyed:
* I really liked Kelsey. She's been on her own her whole life and when everything in her current life turns against her, she is brave enough to take a mysterious bus ticket to a new town.
* Jake seems to be a good match for Kelsey, even if he is a 500 year old immortal centaur.
* The crazy residents of Everlasting are great. I can't believe Petey rented out that horrible hunting cabin.

I really enjoyed this story by Ms. Roth. There is no steam so it is different than her other worlds but this is her second story in this series and I enjoyed this more than the first. I really liked Jake. He is practically the last of his kind and 5 centuries old but meeting Kelsey leaves him as tongue tied as a teenager and just as clumsy. But when it counted Jake was the man he needed to be. And Kelsey was having a string of bad luck. But the signs were clear. She needed to be in Everlasting. ...more

There was not a slow point in the book. All of our favorite characters are back and up to their predictable selves.
