The Inn is up and running, wedding plans are proceeding, and now, they await the arrival of a party of aristocratic vampires. Holly is back to juggling her life in the latest adventure in this fun paranormal cozy mystery series.
Men Love Witches is the eleventh in the Beechwood Harbor Magic series and, it appears anyway, that it is the last in a series of books that work best when read in order.
Holly and Adam have started taking in guests at the old mansion that they have turned into an inn. Some of the quirky issues are not simply bridezillas because the paranormal antics of some guests force them to step up their game. Besides the inn, Holly is struggling to find the perfect wedding dress even while other aspects of the wedding planning are going great- okay, other than the dreaded dinner with the in laws. Chief and Cassie are looking forward to their little Baby Lincoln any moment. Harmony is stressing over her Potion Masters’ certification. And, Holly is getting a bad feeling about Posey their former ghost hostess. But, what really stirs them all up is when Lacey and her vampire guests seem to be planning more than to relax at the beautiful inn and the beaches. A powerful vampire artifact goes missing so Holly and the gang need to find it before it lands in the wrong hands.
This felt like a final book, but I saw on the author’s website there is one more. Holly touched base with so many of the people she has met over the course of the series, did a lot of reminiscing, made peace with her past, said good-bye to a dear friend, and confronted an old nemesis. It felt nostalgic and I teared up a few times. I would not complain if there were way more adventures in Beechwood Harbor, but things are coming to a close. At least there are still Scarlett and her ghost crew and a new magical town and heroine in the author’s newest series.
Men Love Ghosts felt gentler and had less excitement than past books. It slowed things down and there were a lot of feels. Not, that there wasn’t that grand exciting moment near the end, but this one’s focus was definitely on grander schemes. That end was bittersweet and lovely. And, all through this one, Adam was a total swoony groom to be. He did so many special things for Holly. Lucky gal!
Amanda Ronconi continues to be stellar as the series narrator. She had a huge crowd of characters with all the regulars and the group of vampire guests that had various accents, but she did fab.
I enjoy this lighter series of paranormal mysteries and the group of familiar characters and small town Beechwood Harbor. Definitely recommend.
