Charmed & Ready (Bronwyn the Witch, Book 2) by Candace Havens

This is the second Bronwyn book, and I'll again point out that 1) this is Chik Lit with substance and 2) it's written in diary form and that form works great to get this particular story across.

This book starts up not too long after the other one ended, and you really need to read the first book before you read this one. You can read my review of the other books in this series by clicking on the "Bronwyn the Witch" tag at the top of this blog entry. (And you really should read the review of the first book in the series to get an idea of who Bronwyn is.)

And Bronwyn is definitely back, and funny and serious as ever. It might sound like a contradiction, but it works well in this book.

The characters we got to know in the first book are also back. Plus, in this book we meet Zane, a rock star who doesn't take himself too seriously. He's got bad guys trying to kill him so Bronwyn is being payed to follow him around and keep him alive. Not a horrid job to have, with the lifestyle that Zane leads.

This of course leaves Sam at home while his girlfriend is off running around with a rockstar. And having paparazzi taking pictures of Zane and Bronwyn together and speculating on Zane's new lady doesn't make Sam feel any better. It's fair to say that Bronwyn and Same have to work on trust issues in this book.

The book again has a nice mixture of laughs and serious stuff and kick-as stuff and romantic stuff and every day stuff and this again makes it a very enjoyable read.

Book Rating: 10 of 10

1) Charmed & Dangerous (Bronwyn)
2) Charmed & Ready (Bronwyn)
3) Charmed & Deadly (Bronwyn)
4) Like a Charm (Kira)
