The second book curse is a thing and Heat of the Moment confirms it.It started pretty good Becca, a local veterinarian, has always had a special way with animals As we already know, she inherited her

local veterinarian, has always had a special way with animals As we already know, she inherited her abilities from her mother Owen was the town s troublemaker, and of course Becca and he had the hots for each other Watching the two come together after ten years sounded interesting and I wanted to see how it s gonna happen, but honestly it was a let down One moment Becca is telling Owen to stay away from her and the next she professes her love for him She was borderline pathetic about it, too The reason for their falling out makes me so angry It makes me even angrier how Becca never really confronted Owen about it.It bothered me a lot how disloyal Becca was to the family that brought her up They kept a big secret from her, I get it, but they brought her up as if she was their own flesh and blood, they made her feel loved and they never made any differences between Becca and their biological children And yet, special snowflake that she is, she always felt like she didn t belong But she instantly loves her real witch sister, ghost father and wolf mother and I m pretty sure things don t work that way When a complete stranger tells you you re siblings, you can t automatically love them We re not wired like that.The book s saving grace was the paranormal aspect, because whenever magic was involved, the story picked up and it started getting exciting Honestly though, In the Air Tonight was better on that point too I tried to get into this with as little expectations possible and yet I can t help but feel a little bit let down A big thank you to St Martin s Press for providing me with an arc via NetGalley. 4 He s out Stars Book two in the Sisters of the Craft Series, takes off literally where book one finished But this is a new town Three Harbors, Wisconsin, and

takes off literally where book one finished But this is a new town Three Harbors, Wisconsin, and focuses on a different sister Becca Carstairs, has always been a little bit different, being the town Veterinary Surgeon those differences, namely that she can understand the language of animals, means that her patient loss rate is virtually non existent There s hurt then there s agony Owen McAllister back in town after a ten year hiatus, is hoping to get in, get his mother s house sold and get out again The last decade has taken him far away from the path his life followed as the son of the towns mad woman Injured, and carryingbattle scars internally and mentally, as well as his K9 colleague Reggie, Owen is really not looking for a reconnection with the one woman, who held his heart all those years ago, the girl who loved him for who he was and didn t judge him for his mother s crimes, especially in a town where appearances are everything.For him, a room that contained Becca Carstairs was devoid of anything else worth noticing.Lori Handeland has such a distinctive way of writing, you cannot help but become immersed in the story that she is telling, blunt and to the point, but also beautifully descriptive and quirkily humorous I dreamed of him weekly, thought of him daily, missed him hourly.But it was Owen that stood out in this book for me, as although the story is based around the spate of animal sacrifices that has sprung up in town, not to mention the attempts on Becca s life, from initially unknown enemies It was his story and his internal monologue that kept me glued to the pages.The Venatores Mali and the threat to the sisters as a whole is still very apparent, the appearance of Raye and Bobby In the Air Tonight towards the end of this book ties up the two really well together, it also gives us a really great cast and strong story line to follow on with, moving onto the third and final book Smoke on the Water which is due August 2015.ARC generously provided

she great up in, but she doesn t really have a want to go anywhere else Bobby drew her attention pretty quickly and they had a lot of chemistry He has some issues believing in the supernatural so has a hard time with Raye s abilities.We learn a lot about where the sisters come from and why the conflict exists in IN THE AIR TONIGHT.HEAT OF THE MOMENT follows Becca She has a great family and never knew she wasn t a blood part of it She is independent, confident in her career, but we find out that she is still heartbroken over her teenage love OWEN They both have to work through their pasts to make it to the future stronger and together I really loved Reggie I don t know how someone couldn t, he was a great addition to the story.SMOKE ON THE WATER follows Willow Everyone, including Willow thinks she s crazy She currently resides in a psychiatric facility When the man she s been having visions of for years walks into her life as her new psychiatrist she doesn t know what to think besides the fact that they belong together and he is going to save her I don t have a ton of thoughts on the events of SMOKE ON THE WATER that revolves around getting to know Willow That part of the story was a little slow, but I enjoyed the addition of Mary in her story and it really drew the other books into the story before the sisters actually all met up The relationship between Willow and Sebastian wasn t as smooth as the other couples, but it really couldn t be easy because of where they were and their relationships.I actually loved each of the sisters in their own way They were all able to complement each other and work together from the start Each book did a great job in continuing the major storyline and building up the world it takes place in The story was wrapped up nicely at the end of SMOKE ON THE WATER and although I would have loved to readabout the sister s futures, I was happy with the way things ended The Sisters of the Craft series gave me a great few days of reading If I was you, I would wait until they are all out so you can read them back to back This book was provided free of charge from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review HEAT OF THE MOMENT is the second book in the Sisters of the Craft series by Lori Handeland, but it s my first book I ve read from this author I ve had this series sitting on my bookshelf for a while and I decided to try it out on a whim I was surprised that I was able to jump right in without having read the first book in the series, which for me, is a total win.More surprisingly is the fact that Handeland is able to incorporate different aspects to this story that I have never seen done HEAT OF THE MOMENT is the second book in the Sisters of the Craft series by Lori Handeland, but it s my first book I ve read from this author I ve had this series sitting on my bookshelf for a while and I decided to try it out on a whim I was surprised that I was able to jump right in without having read the first book in the series, which for me, is a total win.More surprisingly is the fact that Handeland is able to incorporate different aspects to this story that I have never seen done before in fiction Our heroine, Becca, has a very special ability involving animals She can hear their voices and as a veterinarian, that helps her out a lot The hero, Owen, has a military trained dog that is able to understand German commands As I mentioned, this isn t something I ve ever read before so I was immediately transfixed by this concept.While the paranormal aspect of the book is very much there, I would say that Handeland creates a good balance between the paranormal and the real life conflict happening between Owen and Becca They were once something a long time ago, and as we explore the past that neither one of them want to revisit, we get to understand a lotabout the characters apart from their supernatural abilities and I really liked seeing that.I was also really surprised about the humor in this book There are some really fun moments and one liners that made me smile By the cover and blurb of the book, I thought it would be a very dark book, but it actually has a nice balance I ll definitely be looking into readingof Lori s books in the future NOTE This is a review of the entire trilogy I will try to keep it as spoiler free as possible For whatever reason, I rarely read paranormal romance books I m not sure why because it s a genre that I usually enjoy I have a bunch, but I always seem to skip over them and pick up a fantasy book instead I was browsing through my unread books, and came across the Sisters of the Craft trilogy I decided to give it a try because it had been a while since I read a book about witches, and the covers NOTE This is a review of the entire trilogy I will try to keep it as spoiler free as possible For whatever reason, I rarely read paranormal romance books I m not sure why because it s a genre that I usually enjoy I have a bunch, but I always seem to skip over them and pick up a fantasy book instead I was browsing through my unread books, and came across the Sisters of the Craft trilogy I decided to give it a try because it had been a while since I read a book about witches, and the covers are gorgeous Unfortunately, I really didn t like the trilogy at all I think my biggest problem with the trilogy, in general, is that the writing and plot were very simplistic It felt like a bad soap opera that your grandma would force you to watch with her when you stayed home sick from school Everything was over the top, and nothing felt original It felt like a combination of every paranormal romance I had read, like it took bits and pieces from different stories and combined them to make a plot The one thing that I really did love about the books was Reggie and Grenade, and they were only in one book, never to be seen again The sex scenes in each book weren t even very descriptive It felt like an eighth grade boy was trying to write them.The first book, In the Air Tonight, was very slow paced It took about seventy five percent of the book for things to really get going, and to catch my interest The second book, Heat of the Moment, went better but I think that s because I liked Reggie so much I really loved hearing his thoughts The third book, Smoke on the Water, started off interesting, but quickly went downhill I was involved until about fifty percent into the book Then things started dragging on and on By the time I got about sixty percent, I had to resist the urge to skim read the rest because I was that bored What should have taken me a day to read, took about three because it just dragged so badly and I kept losing interest The only bright part of that book was Mary I loved her snarky sense of humor It had me chuckling a few times.I was sad that the first paranormal romance series I picked up in such a long time turned out to be a letdown I really wanted to like it, but unfortunately, that isn t the case I disliked this trilogy so much that I felt a sense of relief when I finished the third book If it wasn t for the fact that I got all three to review, I probably wouldn t have continued reading past the first book I don t think I will read anyof Lori Handeland s books in the future I think her writing style just isn t for me I received this ARC from St Martin s Press Via Netgalley, in return for an honest

Becca also stumbled on her old flame, the man who has owned her heart since she was six and broke it when she was 17 The Venatores Mali have decided one thing.Becca must die So the plot thickens Honestly though, I didn t like Becca s story as much as I enjoyed Raye s In the first book, it was full of suspense, i even wanted Bobby and Raye to fall for each other In this one, it wasn t as much of a thriller as the first was.Even the Love story I really liked Raye and Bobby, but Owen and BeccaI mean it was cute, but not like the first book Warning This is still VERY much of an adult book So there is mature content and cough, cough scenes Overall, I liked it It didn t have the allure of the first, but it s still a good book I m curious at how they ll find the third sister Still no sight of her, anywhere I ll leave you here in fear of spoilers stay wonderful The Book Herald tweet me thebookherald I sort of expected Becca to beskeptical of things Instead she rolled with the punches, even with her ex coming back to town I wondered too if there might be fireworks between Becca and Owen, about why he left when Becca found out, but once again Becca seemed to roll with the punches again I did love it when Becca finally got to meet her sister, Raye The two of them were funny I actually wasinterested in Riley and his antics I thought it funny how he interacted with Pru and how I

one of them want to revisit, we get to understand a lotabout the characters apart from their supernatural abilities and I really liked seeing that.I was also really surprised about the humor in this book There are some really fun moments and one liners that made me smile By the cover and blurb of the book, I thought it would be a very dark book, but it actually has a nice balance I ll definitely be looking into readingof Lori s books in the future NOTE This is a review of the entire trilogy I will try to keep it as spoiler free as possible For whatever reason, I rarely read paranormal romance books I m not sure why because it s a genre that I usually enjoy I have a bunch, but I always seem to skip over them and pick up a fantasy book instead I was browsing through my unread books, and came across the Sisters of the Craft trilogy I decided to give it a try because it had been a while since I read a book about witches, and the covers NOTE This is a review of the entire trilogy I will try

over them and pick up a fantasy book instead I was browsing through my unread books, and came across the Sisters of the Craft trilogy I decided to give it a try because it had been a while since I read a book about witches, and the covers are gorgeous Unfortunately, I really didn t like the trilogy at all I think my biggest problem with the trilogy, in general, is that the writing and plot were very simplistic It felt like a bad soap opera that your grandma would force you to watch with her when you stayed home sick from school Everything was over the top, and nothing felt original It felt like a combination of every paranormal romance I had read, like it took bits and pieces from different stories and combined them to make a plot The one thing that I really did love about the books was Reggie and Grenade, and they were only in one book, never to be seen again The sex scenes in each book weren t even very descriptive It felt like an eighth grade boy was trying to write them.The first book, In the Air Tonight, was very slow paced It took about seventy five percent of the book for things to really get going, and to catch my interest The second book, Heat of the Moment, went better but I think that s because I liked Reggie so much I really loved hearing his thoughts The third book, Smoke on the Water, started off interesting, but quickly went downhill I was involved until about fifty percent into the book Then things started dragging on and on By the time I got about sixty percent, I had to resist the urge to skim read the rest because I was that bored What should have taken me a day to read, took about three because it just dragged so badly and I kept losing interest The only bright part of that book was Mary I loved her snarky sense of humor It had me chuckling a few times.I was sad that the first paranormal romance series I picked up in such a long time turned out to be a letdown I really wanted to like it, but unfortunately, that isn t the case I disliked this trilogy so much that I felt a sense of relief when I finished the third book If it wasn t for the fact that I got all three to review, I probably wouldn t have continued reading past the first book I don t think I will read anyof Lori Handeland s books in the future I think her writing style just isn t for me I received this ARC from St Martin s Press Via Netgalley, in return for an honest

Becca also stumbled on her old flame, the man who has owned her heart since she was six and broke it when she was 17 The Venatores Mali have decided one thing.Becca must die So the plot thickens Honestly though, I didn t like Becca s story as much as I enjoyed Raye s In the first book, it was full of suspense, i even wanted Bobby and Raye to fall for each other In this one, it wasn t as much of a thriller as the first was.Even the Love story I really liked Raye and Bobby, but Owen and BeccaI mean it was cute, but not like the first book Warning This is still VERY much of an adult book So there is mature content and cough, cough scenes Overall, I liked it It didn t have the allure of the first, but it s still a good book I m curious at how they ll find the third sister Still no sight of her, anywhere I ll leave you here in fear of spoilers stay wonderful The Book Herald tweet me thebookherald I sort of expected Becca to beskeptical of things Instead she rolled with the punches, even with her ex coming back to town I wondered too if there might be fireworks between Becca and Owen, about why he left when Becca found out, but once again Becca seemed to roll with the punches again I did love it when Becca finally got to meet her sister, Raye The two of them were funny I actually wasinterested in Riley and his antics I thought it funny how he interacted with Pru and how I

snippets of humor lightened this up I loved hearing what all the animals were thinking Especially Reggie I have a suspicion about who the third sister is I can t wait to see if I m right ARC provided
