Spellbound and Determined by Dax Varley

I won this R2R through LibraryThing Members Giveaway in exchange for my honest review.

Come in for a spell. This is a cute book.

Cam has the perfect job. She works at Mimi's Charms and Enchantments. She works with Mimi. They are both very colorful characters, most of the time, literally.

When a stranger drops a spell as he hurries out of the store, she learns some very useful information. The spell is very old and it is for Power Supreme. This is just what she needs, since her and Julius Caesar aren't really seeing eye to eye. Caesar could be the downfall to her English Lit class and 3.9 GPA.

Her and her friends go out in search for the remaining stuff, needed for the spell. Teamwork is needed to complete the spell, but with this goofballs it may take a while to collect it all.

The book was funny. They are all a bunch of 'smarty pants' like to poke fun at each other and mess around. I was laughing through most of this book. I know my daughter will love it in a few years, when she's a bit older.

Thanks to the author for this witty group of paranorms.

Lighthearted fun

While Cam is minding her grandmother’s New Age magic shop, a  suspicious looking man accidentally drops an ancient spell for Power Supreme on the floor. Well, who could resist that? Not Cam and her boy-crazy best friend Reade. With the help of the ever accommodating Zack, their high school’s resident nerd genius, they embark on a merry mission to collect all the obscure, sometimes gross, ingredients the spell requires.

Snappy dialogue, likable characters, light suspense, a touch of romance, and a sitcom-funny plot make Spellbound and Determined a fast, fun read. As an added bonus, Zach supplies a steady stream of encyclopedic  information on any number of topics, and he has relevant quotes from Julius Caesar for just about every occasion.

Working in a New Age shop has its perks!

Cam's life takes an exciting turn when an unsettling customer drops an ancient spell on the floor while exiting the store.

Although finding the items she needs to work the spell requires the help of her best friend, Reade, and her newest friend, Zach, she's more than happy to share the rewards. With a little teamwork, ingenuity, and patience they work their way down the list.

Mischief, romance, and comedy follow the trio as they embark on an adventure to find all of the ingredients necessary for Power Supreme.

I thought this book was well written, interesting, and easy to follow. There was never a dull moment and I thoroughly enjoyed the comical aspect. There was a sweet note of romance and allure in unexpected places. The ending brought everything together beautifully.
