This time it's Blair's turn at love. The town's winter carnival is coming up and Blair's determined to see it succeed, despite the busload of elves arriving to "help." In the meantime, the mother and entire pack of her were collie boyfriend Jake show up, looking to cause trouble between him and Blair. Jazz, Stasi, the bunny slippers, and the whole gang are here to help.

This series is silly and fun; I enjoy it quite a bit. ( )

Linda Wisdom is another new author to me. This is the first time I've read her work. If you haven't heard of the Jazz Tremaine series, it's a series about witches or should I say "Hexy" witches. The first two feature, Jazz Tremaine herself, the third featuring Stasi Romanov and 4th and latest book Hex in High Heels features Blair Fitzpatrick.

Blair runs a shop called Blast from the Past that sells vintage items and she's also a witch. One that has been crushing on shape-shifter Jake for a while now. When he starts pulling away she is one confused witch. But when he gets in a bit of trouble, she's determined. Nothing and no one is gonna stop her from helping Jake.

Hex in High Heels is a light fun read. It was a joy to read. I loved the flirting and the dynamic between Blair and her hunk shape-shifter crush, Jake. In Blair's story you'll find romance, magic and adventure. If you enjoy humor along with your paranormal you'll be sure to enjoy this one. ( )

This is the fourth book in Linda Wisdom's witch series. For the most part they are cutesy and entertaining, none of them what you'd call spectacular. This for me was the weakest.

Blair is a witch who specializes in revenge spells. She lives in a small town and owns a shop that sells all sorts of retro/nostalgic items that she and her fellow witch friends have gathered over the many years of their lives. For me one of the most baffling hard to swallow parts of the series is the fact that these women are hundreds of years old, but act like they're in their early to mid twenties at best--but I digress. Blair finds herself attracted to the local carpenter, a were-Border Collie named Jake. As the sparks between them begin to fly, Jakes old pack starts sniffing around and demanding that he return to them. On top of this Blair is dealing with con artists, ditzy human neighbors, and a band of surly and drunken elves.

Obviously these books are meant to be light-hearted and funny, and for the the most part they are successful in this. There's quite a band of off beat side kicks which include Horace the gargoyle and Fluff and Puff the man-eating bunny slippers. It's overdone in my opinion, but passably amusing. I would not say that the plot was entirely boring, even if it did ramble along pointlessly.

All said though, I had many issues with this book, starting with the characters. Blair was pretty one dimensional for a hundreds year old witch. No real back story is given to distinguish her from the other witches, no markedly unique personality traits, and not a glimmer of development in the whole story. Jake is a bit better, because we get a sense that he has a painful past that he's overcome (we are actually given a few details to go on), and his personality stands out a bit from the other men in the series. Their romance was pretty juvenile--they behaved more like horny college students then adults at the start of a deep meaningful relationship. Really, the whole book is pretty shallow. Even the werewolf pack and their devious plans couldn't create enough conflict to make the story seem worthwhile.

I have liked this series overall, but I can't really recommend this one. Kind of a flop. ( )

Fun, fun, fun. That's my short review. I thoroughly enjoyed myself reading this book. Ms. Wisdom has created a fascinating world filled with witches, weres, wizards, fae, elves, and so much more. I love the fact that she has added her own spin to each of these myths, making them different from all of the other supernatural series out there these days.

The synopsis describes it as sexy, and I'll admit I was not prepared for its steaminess. However, I'm also not complaining about it either. That side of the story only made it that much more enjoyable for me. ;-)



I love Blair. She has a confidence and zest for life that is both refreshing and inspiring. She makes me want to add a little flair to my own wardrobe, to play with colors, add kitschy decorations to my house and just stop being so compelled to make everything straight-laced and relatively boring. She inspires me to feel comfortable speaking my own mind and standing up for my beliefs. In other words, she gives me permission to show the world who I truly am. It may not be the message Ms. Wisdom intended for the reader to learn but it is what I take away from Hex in High Heels.

The witches' back story is rich and fascinating. I would love to see Ms. Wisdom branch out into stories about each of the witches over the course of their 700 years, but I find no faults with the story as is either. While the character development is not the greatest, it is what I expect from a story like this and does not in any way detract from the enjoyment of the story. In fact, I can't wait to read more about Blair and her witch friends! ( )

Hex in High Heels was my introduction to the world of Linda Wisdom and Blair Fitzpatrick. Though it is book four in the series, I decided to start from book four and then see how the series struck me, if it was something I would be in to. As it seems to be, the books are all loosely connected with the same characters reoccurring, but different ones taking the starring roles. So, though the series was new to me, I hoped that I wouldn’t have to know too much about Blair and her life previously to enjoy Hex in High Heels.

Blair Fitzpatrick is a witch who just so happens to run her own vintage store and has a thing for a were-collie carpenter named Jake Harrison. The drama is hot enough between the two of them as they work out mutual feelings for each other that could soon blossom to something more. Yet, it is never enough to simply have relationship drama. No. There is always more. Jake’s family ad former pack come to town looking to buy some land from Blair and ease in close to. This pack is made up of wolves, far stronger than the mere collie that Jake becomes. The worst part is that the alpha of the pack is Jake’s brother, working in tandem with their vicious mother, who wants him dead!

Blair is as determined to keep Jake as the pack is to have him and see him dead. Good thing for the pair of them that Blair is as powerful a witch as she is. Does make it any easier that some trouble making elves are also causing Blair a considerable amount of distress.

This book was a lot of fun, for sure. Throughout the story, even in times of drama and distress, the story was infused with humor. At the same time, the characters were not all lighthearted parody’s of magical creatures and things. There was a really great balance to the story, to the drama versus the humor. I really liked Blair and rooted for her the whole time, though of course we all know that the good guys generally win in the end.

I did, however, feel like I may have gotten more out of the cameos made by other characters if I had read the previous novels. A few times, characters were brought in or things were alluded to that I had no idea about and could only assume they happened in one of the previous books. Suffice to say I am going to put the other books on my wish list and get them one by one. If they are anything like Hex in High Heels, I know I am going to enjoy them immensely. ( )
