Publisher's Summary

Marla’s ancestors saddled her with frizzy red hair, sarcasm on tap, the Gawama last name, and the urge to run from her problems.

Her bloodline was also supposed to guarantee she’d be a powerful witch.

She isn’t, not by a long shot.

Only those with magic are allowed in her hometown. Now that her teenage children are awakening, and sparking enough power to be a fire hazard, she’s headed back.

Even if she isn’t ready. Even if she’s fresh out of divorce court.

Home is where her family is. Her nan is head of the council, and her aunts claim multiple orgasms are the source of their limber joints.

But then Marla and her kids all but blow up the town on day one. And her first boyfriend, the one who broke her heart long before her ex did, seems better than ever.

He has his eye on her...

So does everyone else.

Somehow it’s on her, and the magical creature who won’t get out of her head, to save Gales Haven. Before her former mother-in-law redecorates the town in baby pink … and breaks the centuries-old spell that keeps it safe and hidden.

Perfect Pending is a paranormal women’s fiction novel. If you love snarky stories with women so empowered they’re a force to be reckoned with, then you’ll love Perfect Pending, the first book in the Witches of Gales Haven series.

Got me looking crazy!

Laughing out loud is fine unless you're alone. This book was unlike anything I've read in a while. Freaking outstanding in every way!

I was rolling my eyes so frequently

I couldn't finish it. It was mostly the case of the reoccurring insecurities - she doesn't like her body, says she's come to love it, but in the same breath points out all of the ways pregnancy has 'ruined' it. this happens about 20 times. It's a similar story with her magic and her decision to leave her home town.
The thing that pushed me over the edge into not finishing the book was when first her and her kids and then her and her old flame were talking about an old fight / argument and everyone decided to beat up on the MC. There was no expectation of mutual responsibility - just everything was her fault.
over it.

Meh

Story had a lot of promise, but never really got there. Too many characters, not enough depth to any of them. Would have been great to explore the town more or had more of a build up to the action but nothing including the magic is really explained. We’re just thrust into everything with no reason to care. Cute animal stuff, but overall disappointing.

Almost 5 Stars...

It was a fun quick read and I love the magical world the author built. My only complaint, as silly as it sounds, are the excessively rude animals. I think the author was going for fun and snarky, but all I got from them was rotten and rude. It took a lot of the enjoyment out of having talking animals in the story. It might have been okay if it was just one critter that acted that way, but it wasn't. Idk... give it a try, perhaps I'm obsessing over unimportant side characters. That's honestly my only reasoning for the the 4 star rating.

not great, not horrible

OK story line but slow moving. I found myself jumping ahead quite a bit, especially when she keeps beating herself up and excessively worrying. that got tiring. Narrator did a nice job. again not the best but I've had worse.
