In New York Times bestselling author Lucy March's new novel, Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She's been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She's been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he's never made a move. Every Saturday night, she gathers with her three best friends--Peach, Millie, and Stacy--and drinks the same margaritas while listening to the same old stories. Intent on shaking things up, she putsher house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends . . . but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman who shows Olivia that there is more to her life than she ever dreamed. As Liv's latent magical powers come to the surface, she discovers that having an interesting life is maybe not all it's cracked up to be. The dark side of someone else's magic is taking over good people in town, and changing them into vessels of malevolence. Unwilling to cede her home to darkness, she battles the demons of her familial past and her magical present, with those she loves at her side . . . and in the cross fire. Can the most important things in life--friendship, love, magic, and waffles--get her through the worst that the universe can throw at her?

A semi-interesting plot overshadowed by all the vulgarity. Completely disappointing.

Well paced plot that is both mystery with romance.

It lacked . . . something. Something necessary. I think it was the friendship between the women? I just couldn't believe that four women had drinks every weekend and were supposed to be really close, yet still had so many secrets about who they were in love with and who'd they'd slept with. They came off as more casual acquaintances to me, so I had trouble buying a lot of the character interactions.

I also wanted to thunk my head on the table at how trusting the heroine was.

Other than that it was a fun, light read. Good if you've got lots of other stuff going on and need something easy to pick up for a little bit and then is easy to put back down.
