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.
