entertaining paranormal cozy mystery series

This is an entertaining paranormal cozy mystery series spinoff side series. iPhone cast of characters in an entertaining storyline. Pepper rain and her husband axle and your grandmother Betty Creppel are all off to find pieces of the heart fire. Which was shattered into four pieces when an evil vampire tried to steal the heart fire from their magical town. They must recover the four pieces of the heart fire before the vampire does enter town disappears.

A fun tie together between series. The perspective changes can be a little jarring but ultimately are well handled by the beginning of each chapter clearly stating the character it is from. One of my preferred authors for light, fun cozy paranormal mysteries. Even somewhat dark subject matter is handled in a way that you don't feel overwhelmed by negativity. I laugh and smile frequently through all of these but the action is still enough to keep me interested in reading straight through. An auth ...more

Even more intensity!

Pepper, Axel, and Grandma Betty are now chasing the heart fire to Witch's Forge in book two of Lost Southern Magic. After a rocky start they team up with Charming (and she is!), Thorne, and her family to solve a local mystery and foil arch-villain Blake Calhoun. I love these families- it figures that Betty would be friends with Aunt Rose- and the new addition to Magnolia Cove is welcome! The mystery isn't that consuming; however, the intrigue Betty's got going on, combined wi

It’s a great idea that the author had to combine all of her series into one for a magical time! Pepper and Axel meet Charming and Thorne and lets just say that it doesn’t go so well. Everyone finally settles their grudges and get down to finding another piece of the stone. The carnival is in town and a sinister ring master is the one who must be defeated this time.

Excellent second in the series!

Oh my wow! I wasn’t sure if the second book would be on par with the others. I honestly was afraid it would be a repeat of the first just different characters- but - no! I should never had doubted Amy Boyle’s talent and creativity! This book will hold answers to many questions and a definite surprise or two!

The witch and the vampire

This book by Amy Boyles was Amazing. I couldn't put it down. Pepper and Axel have found another piece of the heart. Can they teamed with Charming and her family be able to secure it before Blake gets it? We learn more about Betty's past that includes Blake. I loved reading this.

Vampires,Witches and Werewolves oh my!

Amy Boyles had done it again. I love the Lost Southern Magic Series. This series gets better with each book. I love that the characters from other series are coming together in this series. I can’t wait till book three comes out.

Love the cross-over books!

I am definitely enjoying these cross-over books! Seeing how different characters interact with one another is really fantastic! I especially enjoyed this one with Axel meeting Thorne.

Another piece of heart captured

As they search for the missing heart part I was pulled farther into wanting to interact and know the characters better. So glad this isn't the end of the story.

Book 2

One thing I really love about the author Amy Boyles is how describes smells. Scent memory imprint farther into the heart than any other.
I enjoy her characters and the relationships between them.

Blake is going down

Sadness and loneliness can make people do strange things, vampires and werewolves together is testosterone over.laid. Also Blake has messed with the wrong skirt, I do not need to be a fortunate more to Dee his outcome

Pepper, Axel, Charming, and Thorne Meet

I loved this book. I was really glad that the 4 of them met and eventually got along. I was surprised to see that Betty knew Blake Calhoun and they were more than friends and Blake hurt Betty.
I recommend this book highly.

Another great read.

I couldn't put it down. I hope there will be more books with this crossover. I loved the fun friendship between Betty and Rose. Also liked that we got to see a different side of Betty in this book and a glimpse of Betty's past.

It's fun when my favorite characters cross paths

This was a great combo of characters. They worked well together and complemented each other. I'm looking forward to the next one.

Another adventure for Pepper & Axel as they go in search of the heart. Making new friends who I am sure will all help out in a final battle with Blake Calhoun.

I enjoyed this book. It is paranormal, but not so much as to be weird. I think anyone reading it will enjoy it.

Tangled up!

I am loving these tangled up stories!
Everyone visiting with everyone is a breath of fresh air.
If you can't do it in real life, then at least you can read about it!

The carnival came to town.

These just keep getting better and better. Vampires, werewolf, witches, and wizards all fighting for the power that fuels Magnolia Cove.

Ok, names aside, I loved this story. Charming is actually, quite Charming. I'll have to look into some more stories.

Betty Crapple has a past. And Blake Calhoun can go roast in a pit.

In this story you meet more characters that I think are also going to play a role in the big final battle
