Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She's been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She's been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he's never made a move. Every Saturday night, she gathers with her three best friends—Peach, Millie, and Stacy—and drinks the same margaritas while listening to the same old stories. Intent on shaking things up, she puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends . . . but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman who shows Olivia that there is more to her life than she ever dreamed. As Liv's latent magical powers come to the surface, she discovers that having an interesting life is maybe not all it's cracked up to be. The dark side of someone else's magic is taking over good people in town, and changing them into vessels of malevolence. Unwilling to cede her home to darkness, she battles the demons of her familial past and her magical present, with those she loves at her side . . . and in the cross fire. Can the most important things in life—friendship, love, magic, and waffles—get her through the worst that the universe can throw at her?
This was a really fantastic book! I really enjoyed reading it, because it was fun, cute, and just plain awesome! I loved being with these characters, I really enjoyed the romance, and that twist about who the bad guy was? Just so great!
There was a lot of humour in this book, like how she felt bad that she'd mocked this one guy because he married his pillow, when she, herself felt very romantic feelings for her duvet. Just really great, some one liners, and a few continuous jokes through the book!
This was a book about friends-she's very close with a group of 3 other girls-and about friendship, and love. Yeah, I really enjoyed her relationship with Tobias, because he stood her up so many times to the point where she was moving to Europe to have some change. But then she comes into her powers.
Yeah, I really enjoyed this book, it was nice and sweet, and I can't wait for the sequel!
