It’s been ages since I’ve picked up a book by Yasmine Galenorn, but I’m glad I stumbled across Bewitching Bedlam. This was a fun, no hassles read where I knew I wasn’t going to have to engage ‘ze little grey cells’ and I could just sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.
Maddy and Aegis made an odd pairing, given the animosity between the witches and vampires, but I’m glad we meet them at the beginning of their relationship. Bubba is adorable, and he is the most interesting take on a traditional witches familiar that I’ve come across in quite a while. The murder mystery was well done, and kept my interest even when Maddy and Aegis confess their pasts to each other after the threats ramp up against Maddy.
The secondary characters that we get the most interactions with, Sandy (a true ride or die BFF), Delia, Ralph (a randy satyr), and Linda, were fleshed out enough that they interacted with the protagonists naturally, but those characters that just had bit parts were less distinctive and easily forgotten. As for Essie and Rachel... well, they left an impression alright.
Definitely going to pick up other books in the series.

Magic and politics.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 May 2021
Excellent tale, well told and with plenty of action. Interesting combination, witch and vampire, both with long histories behind them, and secrets. A magical community, co-existing, sometimes uneasily, with magical politics brewing up trouble.
Fantastic readReviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 March 2019
I put 5 stars as I was thoroughly entertained, Maudlin is a fascinating character with multiple layers to her, looking forward to the Essie and Maudlin revelations
Loved thisReviewed in the United Kingdom on 6 August 2019
Really enjoyed this book, will be getting the next as soon as. The only thing that puts me off is the sex and language but i skip past them!
Not for meReviewed in the United Kingdom on 20 July 2019
Struggled to enjoy this and still not sure why - just could not engage with the characters
Four and a half starsReviewed in Canada on 26 March 2019
I enjoyed reading this first book in the Bewitching Bedlam series and meeting the characters. Some hot sex scenes and some suspense kept me reading until the end. I look forward to the next book.
