Witches on Parole


Witches on Parole (WitchLight Trilogy #1)Witches on Parole (WitchLight Trilogy, #1)
by Debora Geary

421 Pages
Published September 13, 2011

World-famous (and now retired) photographer Jenvieve Adams has a debt to repay—and a soft spot for witches who have lost their way. Or so she thinks, until they actually show up.

Join some of the cast of characters from the very successful A Modern Witch series as they take on a new kind of journey as guides for WitchLight. What happens when an obsessive psychologist and a wordsmithing delinquent get dropped into Witch Central?

Note: Witches on Parole is a spin-off trilogy, set in the world of the A Modern Witch series. This trilogy can be enjoyed on its own, but if you haven’t yet read A Modern Witch, you might consider doing so—many of the characters featured in Witches on Parole get their start in the main series. For those who are already fans of the main series, this book falls between book 2 and 3, but can easily be read anytime after book 1.

Oh, dear. I wish I lived in these books. While that about sums it up, I'll go on. Just because I can. :)

We first meet Aunt Jennie - an amazing-beyond-imagining photographer. Then, rather quickly, Lizard and Elsie arrive on-scene. And what an impression they make!

Lizard loves words, has impressive tattoos, and a love for cooking (make your biscuits by shredding frozen butter - Lizard swears by it!). Oh, and she's on parole.

Elsie is a tight-laced psychologist looking for an opportunity for service - she certainly doesn't expect the experience she's in for!

5/5 stars
