Have there been days when you’ve felt that way? You get up and discover your husband left four days of beard bristles all over his sink and left it that way? Oh wait! That happened to me! Or that your favorite lipstick dropped … on your top. Perhaps someone found your stash of chocolate and finished it off. Maybe you discover that your wallet is at home just after you’ve limped into the gas station on fumes. Or one of the kids threw up on the newly cleaned carpet. Isn’t that when you think about just going into the bedroom and locking the door behind you? Or leaving town? Maybe even the country.
That’s how Stasi Romanov felt when she was served with legal papers stating a human was suing her in wizard’s court for giving the woman a hexed sachet. She’s the sweet witch. She’s the one who smiles and is always ready to help anyone.
So why would anyone think that Stasi would hex a silk sachet, so a customer’s cheating husband doesn’t return? Or did she? And just why does she hiccup iridescent bubbles? What can I say? You’ll have to read the book to find out.
And Trevor Barnes, wizard attorney with sexy surfer looks. Is there a reason why he has red hearts circling his head? The same red hearts that are dancing around Stasi’s head?
Once again, you have to read the book.
Beautiful Moonstone Lake the town is named after isn’t so beautiful or serene now. An invisible barrier keeps the witches out and flames lick along the barrier. Clues to what’s tainting the lake are there, but not apparent. Can you guess what did it?
Yes, read the book. :}
Ghosts are affected by something that’s moving through the town that’s now cut off from the outside world due to a snowstorm and power outage, the human residents are panicking and when seeing Stasi, whispering the word witch and not in a nice way.
Fear and anger are like a disease and another problem that Stasi has to solve before she loses her life. But to find out if she saves the day you’ll have to … let’s say it all together … read the book!
Bogie, Stasi’s dog, is based on my wonderful wonderful Chihuahua/Yorkie, Bogie, except that her Bogie floats instead of walks and disappears if he gets nervous. He isn’t fond of sharing his space with Fluff and Puff when they visit. And then there’s Horace, Stasi’s gargoyle who hangs out in the shop because he enjoys watching women try on lingerie and guessing their bra sizes. He speaks his mind, gets into trouble at the drop of a hat, but in his own way, you have to love him. Just don’t hug him if you’re wearing a low cut top.
So let’s recap this, shall we? Stasi’s being sued and the plaintiff’s attorney is sexy and magickal. The town is infected with fear and blaming Stasi and her witchy friend Blair for what’s happening. Trev is falling hard for Stasi and needs to find a way to make the lawsuit go away. Jazz, Nick and Irma, and yes, Fluff and Puff, are there to help make things right and hopefully it happens before three witches die.

Read the book. Wicked By Any Other Name was a blast to write and I hope you’ll agree. I’m also so happy that my Hex series has been optioned for TV or film and I’ve recently been contracted to write two more books in the series. I hope you’ll enjoy them just as much as the first three.
