Merissa (Archaeolibrarian)
BLACK WATER MAGIC is the first book in the Teagan Blackwater series, and it starts with the magical murder of Nola as Teagan lazes around in post-coital bliss. Now Teagan is on the backfoot as she tries to figure out her new role, gain the respect of the magical community, solve a murder, and break a curse.

I enjoyed this book from start to finish, with the different characters and their secrets. It is only the first book in the series, so I expected there to be parts of world-building, back-stor

The first in a series about a young witch fighting to discover exactly what has been kept from her begins with the gruesome murder of her beloved grandmother Nola. Teagan at the beginning of this book comes across as a somewhat spoiled, carefree young woman who isn’t looking for any commitments. She has an almost friends with benefits relationship with Colby, a local Demi Demon MC member but everything comes to a head when they discover Nolas body. Pretending that her grandmother has mysteriousl ...more

It is no secret that Leslie Scott's kissing books are some of my favorites BUT my heart belongs in its weird entirety to sci-fi and urban fantasy and has since I was tiny. I was thrilled when I found out Leslie was releasing an urban fantasy witchy (ok, with some kissing) delight.
I enjoyed the crap out of this book. I may be a tad on the biased side but the characters in this book are as wholly imaginative as any Leslie has created. Teagan and Oliver make my soul smile and I sort of need to kno

Teagan Blackwater is your typical young witch. She’s learning her powers from her grandmother, who runs the area. There’s no coven, but Nola Blackwater is the one everyone turns to when there’s an issue. She also owns the trailer park they live in and other properties around town.
One night while Teagan is with her demi-demon friend when they feel an unusual power shift. They immediately dress and head to Nola’s house where they come across her gruesome murder. The Swamp Witch was killed with an

With the title comes new abilities and new responsibilities - saving a virgin from a demi-demon , ridding the strip mall of the ghost haunting are just two .
Her personal life is also a mess - sleeping with demi-demon but lusting after the local deputy sheriff , who just happens to be a werewolf , brings its own troubles .

Teagan Blackwater has secrets. HUGE secrets. But when she discovers her grandmother, Nola, murdered, Teagan quickly learns that she wasn’t the only one hiding something. Nola was hiding truths, too. Truths that apparently eclipse Teagan’s forbidden relationship with a demi-demon.

With curses to break and secrets to unravel, Teagan’s in a race against time to solve her grandmother’s murder. The tiny town of Firewater Springs may never be the same (and Teagan sure won’t be!).

I didn't like the story at the start, but something made me keep turning pages and by the end, I was on the edge of my seat. :)

Teagan is living with her grandmother Nola, the swamp witch, is more worried about hiding her boyfriend, demi-demon from her. One night she comes home, only the find Nola dead in the backyard. As her successor, her world gets a whole lot more complicated than hidden boyfriends, who everyone seems to know about.

She has to find out who did it and resolve the curse, not

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. A swamp witch is an unusual theme and caught my interest immediately. Teagan has quite a mystery to solve and a vindictive ghost to release. O'Dell turned out to be quite a surprise. Certainly did not see his abilities creeping up. So many different characters from a Viking warrior, demi-demons, witches and the lone werewolf just to mention a few. I will add this author to my watch list. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and freely leave this honest re ...more

A magical journey

I love this book. The writer really allows you to bury yourself in her world. The characters came to life I could envision them and cannot wait to see more adventures from them. II read this book on a trip with a girlfriend and we wanted the trip to last longer so we could read more LOL

Good Start

I liked the book, but I am getting tired of the gay/lesbian best friend. I could get into it if they had a function other than the comedy relief. But they don’t. They are all cookie cuter side kicks.

When Teagan's grandmother is murdered, Teagan assumes the position of Swamp Witch and the power that goes with it. The responsibility that accompanies the mantle is overwhelming at times. The characters are fascinating and multifaceted. I love a bad boy and Colby was perfect. I'm also practical and a handsome werewolf cop has potential. But mostly, I am fascinated by Teagan. The character is strong enough to accept help and has enveloped herself with a strong support system. I am new to this aut ...more

My first book from Leslie Scott and I really enjoyed the world that she has created, full of paranormals included witches, demons and vampires. There's an interesting mix of characters with the main one being Teagan, a young witch who discovers her grandmother, Nola, the Swamp Witch of Firewater Springs and the most powerful witch in Florida, has been murdered. This leaves her with a lot of responsibility and unanswered questions with more arising before getting any answers. On her side is her b ...more

Award winning author, Leslie Scott thrives in the middle of chaos. Not because she home schools her son and rides herd over the family's zoo of indoor pets or listens to her soul mate wax poetically about all things car and related. Oh, no. That's nothing. The real chaos is the characters in her mind, elbowing and tripping each other to get to the front of the line so they can be the next romantic ...more
