Book Review! ONCE BLESSED, THRICE CURSED by: Coralie Moss

In this first book of the Sister Witches Urban Fantasy series, Clementine Brodeur must unknot her dead mother’s tangled legacy before the clock runs out…

I’m Clementine, youngest of three sisters, and my magic is making me lose sleep.
I see memories the dead leave behind.
Which becomes painful when those memories belong to my mother.

Alderose, Beryl, and I need clues to find someone our mother protected. But viewing Mom’s memories–caught in story threads only I can see–will force me to experience the moment she was attacked by the Fae.

I know I can find my way through this.
However, my sisters don’t like my history of “leap now, look later” escapades.
They’ve had my back for over twenty years. Why wouldn’t they have it now?

The reality is we have forty-eight hours to find someone our talented mother could not.
If we don’t succeed, someone’s going to die.

And the story threads refuse to reveal if the one who will die is one of us.

So Christmas has passed for many who celebrate it and is yet to come for those who follow Orthodox traditions, but it’s hailed a return to reality for me. What better way to restart my book reviews than with a sweet little holiday novella?

She’d only be safe if she got away…

Lainie Taggert needed to break away from her abusive relationship before it killed her, but Sonny Fitzgerald had all the keys to controlling her. Until she landed in the hospital with bruises and broken bones. And her friend, Drea Halstead, convinced her they had to spirit her away.

When her long-distance teaching buddy goes on maternity leave, New York City native Leyla Harraq, temporarily transplants to a sleepy beach town on the West Coast to manage her friend’s Hot Yoga studio. But the yogini’s brash spunk leads to an immediate social gaffe when she insults her new landlord, carpenter Adam Fields, and must backpedal to save face.

Watching Adam wallow in solitary confinement after a brutal break-up will never do. Motivated by her own need for physical contact, Leyla happily offers herself as the perfect rebound.

But when the studio owner realizes she can’t return to teaching full-time and asks Leyla to stay, the fish-out-of-water must make a choice. Can she abandon her commitment-free lifestyle for small town drama and a chance at love with a hunky hammer wielding man?
