    So...much....telling... I enjoyed the plot but incessant telling instead of showing was difficult to wade through. I wanted to see how Sarah's relationships developed, not be told that suddenly she had the hots for someone or that weeks had passed and now she was a witch capable of taking down the bad guy. The joy is in the journey and we only get the excessively described highlight reel. So...much....telling... I enjoyed the plot but incessant telling instead of showing was difficult to wade through.

In less than a week she nearly has a melt down when she discovers her new house has a resident ghost named Blake and her cat can talk to her. Demanding answers about what is going on from the ghost and cat I was captivated by the cat pontificating on the nuances of what defined contemporary witches as he explained to Sarah that she was indeed a witch. “The better one understands the story of their magic, the stronger the magic...The story is a feeling or a sense of magical identity.” This drew me right into the book. I liked the concept and the characters. The plot thickens as Sarah walks into her favorite herbal shop to discover the owner collapsed on the floor. As she abruptly sits up she utters a dark prophecy that uses references to tarot cards. After making sure she is fine Sarah finds herself out of her magical depth and turns to Glinda, the owner of the newspaper she now works for. So far so good but then things turn rocky for me as a reader. The more secure Sarah becomes as magical the more I don’t like her. Maybe it’s a NYC thing? She uses flirtatious lines on the handsome men she meets that most women cringe hearing men say. Her reserved NY personality changes too dramatically to be believable, she uses aggressive verbal attacks rather than confidant assertiveness - there’s a difference. And no more philosophical musings from the cat? The final scenes simply aren’t believable and I had to struggle to finish. Btw, no one uses masseuse, it’s considered a derogatory word in that trade and relegated to those who offer “other” services. It’s “massage therapist”. This book started strongly but Sarah’s inner character doesn’t shine. We don’t really get to know anyone in depth and the prophecy which centered on tarot cards (which Sarah practiced though we have no idea how) weren’t mentioned again. These are the kinds of things that leave the reader frustrated and bereft. I think this is a promising writer and a good premise..plus I appreciate the editing.

    It was ok. 2 stars seemed a bit harsh though so going with 3 stars instead. DNF @ 23% Really hard to read. The story gets lost in translation so to speak. Way too descriptive with an added overuse of adjectives and adverbs. Some issues with continuity both in terms of story-telling and general writing style. On top of that the FMC didn't really capture me and I've just read one too many undeveloped debut novels lately to be in the frame of mind to continue this. Sad, really, cause I very much love It was ok. 2 stars seemed a bit harsh though so going with 3 stars instead. DNF @ 23% Really hard to read. The story gets lost in translation so to speak.

    This book was spectacular! I absolutely fell I love with the story. This poor woman has really had a lot of bad luck. She was close to rock bottom if you ask me. And then she gets the opportunity of a lifetime. A job writing a better section of the paper, better pay, bigger place to live, and the best part magic. She has a lot to learn when she finally accepts her new reality. I totally adore the familiar and the ghost!

    Difficult to read Very florid writing style. Too many descriptive words used could do with editing. The overall storyline was hard to follow but by the end I felt I had the gist of it. I have book two ready to read and feel that by the end of that one, my view may be that two books could be cut down to one.

    Forty Times As Fabulous Forty Times As Fabulous (A PWF women’s fiction) is definitely a 5 star read. Totally different than anything I’ve read with a brilliant story line, humor, and paranormal mystery.

    Magical read! I highly recommend this fantastic book to all readers who love reading paranormal mystery romance. The main character is a kick butt, forty plus year old, who thrives thru an extreme life change, and the plot twist and turns are very intriguing. Enjoy!

    Forty Times as Fabulous Nice cosy mystery. Sarah moves to a small town, where she can write real stories for the local paper. No more obituaries. But something isn't right, murder, who is doing this? Forty Times as Fabulous Nice cosy mystery. Sarah moves to a small town, where she can write real stories for the local paper. No more obituaries.

    Forty Times as Fabulous I have to admit, the background information was long and somewhat tedious, but the story itself was fun. I actually fell in love with Mystic Falls.

    Needs a good editor The plot and story are well done. The writing, especially the protagonist's thought processes and most of the dialogue, is very stilted.

    Fabulous? Lots of details that almost, almost bogged down the story. On the other hand some details were definitely glossed over and I hope eventually get filled in. I got this close to closing the book and settling it aside, but hung in there and got a satisfactory ending. I already bought book and hope at least to wrap up the current mystery.
