The Accidental Witch Review

Welcome to my Review of
The Accidental Witch by Jessica Penot.
Phaedra Michaels is a small town psychologist who is beginning to lose hope. Two of her patients at the local hospital in Dismal, Alabama have just killed themselves, she’s still reeling from her divorce and what turned out to be a disastrous marriage, and her father has died, leaving her without any notion of who her real mother is. 
Just as Phaedra decides to commit herself to a serious drinking problem and an eating disorder, or two, a mysterious spell book arrives in the mail. Feeling desperate, Phaedra uses it to cast spells to save her fading patients. Suddenly, good things start happening.  Phaedra’s patients begin to get better and she even starts dating the sexy doctor from the hospital.
Phaedra is so happy she doesn't notice the small things that start to go wrong in Dismal, or the dark creatures slithering out of the shadows near her house. When Phaedra finally realizes her spells have attracted every card-carrying demon from hell, she has no choice but to accept help from a slightly nerdy, 500 year-old warlock with a penchant for wearing super hero T-shirts and a knack for getting under Phaedra’s skin. Now, if only she could get the hang of this witch thing, she might be able to save her town.   
My Review
To be a witch and not know it until you get a random spell book from no one knows who or why is definitely an accident worth following.
Being a women that has had no actual love in her life weather it be by family or anyone else tries to help people in any way she can.   So when she gets the spell book she tries to help her towns people become "better" then what they ever could be.  In the mean time she attracts unwanted attention by a demon.  In walks an immortal who can help her destroy the demon and learn how to use her powers.

So much happens in this fast and intriguing read that you just have to read it for yourself to get it all in.  I can't wait to read more from this series.
