Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year. The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better. Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all. Pandora Williams is Nocturne Falls' most successful real estate agent. And least successful witch. Her magic never has the intended outcome, but she's learned to live with that. Mostly. Yes, it sucks, but what can she do? Then a hot new neighbor shows up and suddenly her magic works. Very cool, but very suspect. Especially since he's a total non-believer. Cole Van Zant likes practicality and absolutes. Things he can see and touch. So not magic. But when his teenage daughter insists she's a witch - and they're now living in a town that celebrates Halloween every day - he needs help. Of the witchy variety. Thankfully, his sexy neighbor buys into all that hocus pocus. Enlisting her help seems like a great idea until spending time together reveals a supernatural surprise about who Cole really is. A secret even he didn't know. Could Pandora and Cole really be meant for one another or is their attraction too much to believe?
A Delightful Book!

I love this series. And Pandora is one of my favorite characters. I read and also left a review for the book when it first came out. There was one thing that bugged me a little but I didn't comment on it. But listening to it now, I can't help but comment. Kayleigh was a delight, but there were times when she would do something or act a certain way making her dad upset, only for him to be all Sweetheart and Honey. Omg! This made me want to scream at him! In the beginning when she ran away, he should've at least grounded her. I know she was upset and misunderstood by her dad but she was too old to act like that. She should've known better. Especially being in a new and strange place. She didn't know if there was dangers. And I know teenagers can be mouthy no matter how many manners you try and teach them, but there were times when she was so disrespectful and nothing was ever said. No matter how bad she ever was, her dad thought it was so cute. Gosh, I didn't mean to rant. That being said, there's not a lot of parts like this. In fact, by the end of the book, she is my favorite character. She really matures so much so fast.
I just love the way Cole's role as a familiar was written. One would think familiars would be boring but not him. His ex-wife, Lilah, is a real piece of work. She is such a bad mother. After leaving Cole and Kayleigh a long time ago, she starts coming back around wanting to be part of Kayleigh's life. Which is a good thing if that is her true intentions. You will have to read/listen to the book to find out.
Pandora is such an awesome person. She's a witch who's magic has always been broken. She has a big fat cat named Pumpkin who loves beef jerky. Her and Cole are a match made in heaven. I was upset at first about her getting so upset that Cole wasn't staying permanently. I mean, why couldn't she be the one to up and move where he lived? Of course, Nocturne Falls is the safest and best place for a witch to live. Or is it safe? Nothing is safe with Lilah around. She is hell bent on using a spell on Cole. Pandora's family are powerful witches so they are determined to protect her.
This book has a wonderful happy ending. There's a really good twist to part of it that I didn't guess. I loved it! And this is the best narrator there ever was! He can do any voice.
