Angela (Angel's Guilty Pleasures)
Cloudy with a Chance of Witchcraft is book one in the Grimm Cove series by Mandy M. Roth.

This was a lot of fun and I loved it. Roth had me laughing and falling in love with Grimm Cove and all it’s fun and wacky characters we get to meet.

I love our heroine, Poppy, who just turned 40. She’s getting a second chance at love with an old fling after her ex-husband, who I might add is a cheating sob, divorces her out of the blue. What better way to start a new life than to return to her old hometown w

This is the first book in the Grimm Cove trilogy, it has a small-town cozy feel with romance and a quiet little town where residents are of the supernatural variety. Poppy’s husband asks for a divorce, and she heads home to the house her grandparents left her in Grimm Cove. Her best friend’s from college are making a fresh start with her.

While the romance was fast moving as mated romances tend to be, I loved Cloudy with a Chance of Witchcraft. Poppy is a witch, but her parents never practice, an

Stepping into this book, was like stepping into my own past, dealing with a cheating husband that had an off/on switch, one minute it was over the next he didn't want it over, I have no idea what came over me, lets work it out. I laughed, I cried, and I laughed even harder, trying not to wake my current husband, while he slept. Brett and Poppy are such a dynamic power couple it is just phenomenal. The characters, oh how I can see Dana meeting Striker from the OPS world and tangling words with th ...more

I just finished Cloudy With A Chance of Witchcraft by Mandy M Roth and it was a blast. This new series from Ms Roth is set in Grimm Cove which is filled with paranormals of all types: shifters, witches and vampires, oh my! But don't forget ghosts and hunters too. Enter 3 kickass friends of a certain age, a second chance at love, and a serial killer and this series looks like a winner. I finished this book in one sitting and now can't wait until the next book is out. ...more

Loved the imagination. Hated the execution.

The elements were good. I like where this was going. But it could have been much much better with a good editing.
I wish this author had taken the time to rewrite the whole thing. It's more of a first draft, than a book.

For all the buzz of a middle aged protagonist (which i loved the concept of), the story itself reads like it was aimed at a much younger audience. The hints are heavily overemphasized, so much so that it gets irritating. Give your reader

Loved it!! Read this book!!

This new series is apart of the new Paranormal Women’s Fiction (PWF) and the author is new to me.
I was pleasantly surprised to see how much I loved the story as well as the characters. I read this book within 24 hrs. I absolutely LOVED it!! Poppy and her girls, Marcy and Dana are a great trio. I absolutely love the connection that they have!!
I enjoyed the second chance love as well. Brett and his guys sound like amazing guys and I loved how the story followed both P
However bonkers the story is, I don’t really care because this book gives me lots of LOL moments.

This series is very interesting, a group of authors write a series of PNR romance with over 40s as the heroines. Don’t expect to have Kate Daniels here, but it was a fun read 😘.

Now I need to read Dana and Jeffrey book, and while waiting for their book publish in March, I will check out other books by different authors in the series first.

4 stars!


Cloudy with a Chance of Witchcraft was such a sweet and funny read! The beginning was pretty tough to get through, as it dealt with cheating, but the book as a whole had a really upbeat and lighthearted tone. It was lovely to read about an older protagonist in Paranormal Romance, since that's pretty rare to see, and I loved how Roth wrote the POV characters: Poppy and Brett.

There was a lot of humor and banter and bickering in this novel and it felt pretty organic. The dialogue as a whol

Mandy M. Roth delivers another winner in this fast moving romp and fun read! Welcome to Grimm Cove, a town filled with paranormals. Shifters, witches, slayers, vampires, and... Ghosts! Oh my!

I loved that this storyline revolves around an everyday, everywoman, middle-ager, and not some young twentysomething chick. There are too few books centered around women in their 40's and 50's. As if life ends in your 30's, or something.

I voluntarily offered to review this book with no obligations and my opinions are honest!
This was a great book !
Poppy is recently divorced, so moving to her grandparents home seemed like a good idea.
A new life on her old hometown.
The kids are grown, and out of the house.
It is only Poppy now.
But not for long!
Could Brett be her second chance at love ?
Will she be brave enough to find out ?
Loved the characters + the storytelling !
It has all the ingredients that you need for a great book!
I can't wait

Poppy had no idea what was coming. A new life in her old hometown with her two besties. That may sound reasonably normal but not even in the slightest. Oh, no. Running into Brett (her first love)or ... starts the new adventure of life after forty. Divorced, empty nest and supernaturals are real!

Moving into her grandparents' old home that is full of memories seemed like it would be a great thing. It should have until strange things kept happening. The good thing was finding Brett again. Or was it

UNPUTDOWNABLE!! A one sitting read! 💗
Who says midlife second chances have to be boring....
The story sucks you in from the very first pages & doesn’t let go until the very end. The women are strong, loyal & funny as hell. 😂💖🤩

I discovered this book as part of the newly released #PWF Fab 13. I think I might have read one of Mandy's books before, but one thing for certain is that I will definitely be reading more.

Fans of Kristen Painter's books should know that Mandy had a very similar writing style for me. She made me laugh, she definitely understands the toils and tribulations of being a woman over 40, oh and she gave me my new favorite term for children - "Crotch Goblins".

This paranormal story introduces a lot of c

Cloudy with a Chance of Witchcraft by Mandy M. Roth was just plain FUN to read. Poppy, Dana and Marcy are BFFs for over 20 years. These women may be 40 but they can and do take names and kick@$$. I liked Poppy, adored Dana and loved Marcy who stole the show many times throughout the story. I read this book in one afternoon and regret that I don't have the next one in the series yet. ...more

Phenomenal read
Have you ever read a book and before you were even finished you knew you wanted more and hoped the book would never end. Well this is one of those. Great from the start and just makes you want to live in the world the author built. Anticipating the next in the series.
I loved how this has a HEA and is truly a second chance type PNR book, as well as a PWF book.
I highly recommend this book to read.

Satisfying read; fun characters

Good story, makes you want to road trip to visit these characters and join in the action. I need backup besties like this! I’m looking forward to the next one.

I couldn't put it down. I just finished reading this about 2 minutes ago and I already want to read it again. Super adorable and funny. Plus action packed and entertaining! Love Poppy and her girls! I love Brett and his boys! Seriously awesome book and I cannot wait for the next one! ...more
There was one major flaw with this book, but that flaw alone brings this down to ***3.5***

The opening chapter is a brief flash back to 6 months ago, for a scene. The entire rest of the book takes place in a single day .

That's a tough swallow. In this single day, Poppy - recently on the other side of a nasty divorce - encounters her first love. A man who she thought she'd be with for the rest of her life, who ran out of the room one night as they were about to have sex, and then sent her a let

Time to pull up the depends and kick some serious arse!
Starting over at the age of 40 is hard enough but finding out that the things that go bump in the night are real and you are one of them could push someone right over the edge. Well someone a bit younger maybe but not for Poppy and her best friends.
Moving back to her hometown of Grimm Cove, South Carolina with her besties Dana and Marcy is just what the doctor ordered. She has so many wonderful memories there as well as Brett, the man who b

This is a great new series by Mandy Roth. This book is part of the Paranormal Women’s Fiction Romance group (PWF). The books in the PWF are all strong female lead characters and the female lead is middle age, mostly over 40 years old. I have to admit that I love reading a book with a strong female lead but loving it more when the character is middle age. Since most books are written with younger characters.

Poppy's life goes into overdrive after her husband divorces her.

What I enjoyed:
* The friendship between Poppy, Dana and Marcy is great and I look forward to the next books
* I love towns where the paranormal is normal and look forward to learning more about it and the people who live there
* I like Brett and am glad he and Poppy got another chance.
* The twins seem great, would have really liked to see them meet Brett

What could have been better:
* It was too fast. We get one day when Poppy's husband

A new beginning
There are so many examples of why I continue to read this author’s works between the pages of this book. I love the characters and the humor that is a foundation of their personalities, the story is full of the excitement and details that is a true hallmark of the author’s writing style, and I enjoyed that the characters are all over 40 and finally finding their place in the world. This book is the perfect representation of the new PWF collection and a fantastic beginning to a br
I loved loved loved this book! How can you not? It has 3 kickass female heroines, of which we follow Poppy's journey in this book. Together with her backup bitches Dana and Marcy, she moves to Grimm Cove and finds her first love and... magic??? Oh boy.
This book spoke to me for several reasons: it is sassy (hello Dana), it is quirky (hi Marcy) and it is a overwhelmed (That is Poppy). I identify with all 3 of them. In addition, I also turn 40 this year and much of what they feel, have experienced

Mandy has written another winner. I loved this book. A story about a 40 year old woman as her life goes through some serious changes and then her new beginning. Emotional, uplifting and fun! It is mostly romance with a dash of adventure, a dollop of mystery and nicely spiced with the paranormal. The characters include kick-ass best friends, old friends and family. The story moves quickly and kept me totally engaged through to the end.

When Poppy’s husband Thomas dumps her at dinner after 19 years of marriage, for a younger woman, Poppy is distraught but her best friends Dana and Marcy help her through it for the six months leading up to the divorce.
Poppy and friends head off to Grimm Cove to renovate her Grandparents home, and literally runs into her ex Brett, who ran out on her before they had sexual, when she was twenty.
Chemistry soon sizzles between the two, but as she learns more about the to

Tired of twenty year old heroines saving the day? Feel like you can't connect with the character who's in college and naive?
This book has an older main character and is starting her life over. I loved every minute of it and finally felt comfortable with a character closer to my age. I can't wait to see what happens with the rest of the series.
