Like a Charm
Author: Candace Havens
Kira Smythe never thought she'd end up back in her hometown of Sweet, Texas. But now that her high-powered job, along with her five-year plan, have gone right out the window, she's back where she started, staying with her hippie, tofu-obsessed parents-except that somehow she's inherited the local library.

Started off a little slow, but after about half way through it picked up very quickly.
The chapters are short, so the read went by very quickly. They are about 5-10 pages per chpater. Some of the plot seemed choppy at times.

Overall a cute, fun read. The little lists were adorable. The drag-queen ghost was a hoot.

I would not call this book the 4th in the Bronwyn Witch series if anything it is a pre-quel . This book takes place before or within the first few chapters of Charmed and Dangerous, before Bronwyn meets Sam and she just meets and befriends Kira and Marjorie in this book.
That being said, I loved it. It was great to see the development of Kira and Caleb as characters. But the the book seems like it was just the beginning of including Kiras adventures into the series. Though is a good read on its own. There is no reason you need to have read the Bronwyn books to read this one, and I am a stickler about reading books in the order they were written.

I think that Ms. Havens could be a good writter if she had a bit more experience and someone to help her to flesh out key parts of the story.The story was fun,quick and cute.I would of liked to read more about the Library and some of people in town.

I hope she writes a sequel. I loved this book, most fun I've had reading in a while. Paranormal fun but at the same time smart and sassy.

The book was very slow to start. Then all the sudden the plot begins and the book is over. A good book but wish the plot happened sooner and there was more to the story.
