I am so excited about this book. BELL, BOOK, AND SANDALS is one of the most delightful novels I’ve read lately. It’s true to both the paranormal and the chick lit genre, and readers who are looking for the next weekend read will love this.
When Maxie Duncan’s fiance dumps her, she decides it’s time for a drastic change. She moves from Maine to Hollywood, determined to live off her good looks instead of her parents’ overflowing bank accounts. But at the first audition she attempts, she gets her dreams crushed. Luckily, not everyone in Hollywood is out to get her: she stumbles into a quirky but loveable set of friends, and Maxie finds herself living on her own and loving it.
Then, as if things weren’t already good enough, she gets a chance to go on a date with the hottest leading man in Hollywood. But when something seems too good to be true, it usually is. Maxie’s life is about to take a turn for the weird.
Fans of Shopaholic will love Maxie’s innocent, sassy demeanor, and readers who enjoy a magical twist will love the strange world that Maxie tumbles into. Get ready for a delightful read: I can’t wait for more of Maxie’s adventures!

Sometimes life can be a real witch.
Meet Maxie Duncan. Your average 23-year-old blonde. If you can call being wealthy, gorgeous, and knowing what the future holds at times, average.
After her fiancé blindsides her with a breakup at their favorite restaurant, she leaves Maine for a shot at being Hollywood’s new ‘it girl.’ There’s only one problem. She’s never acted a day in her life.
When a big Hollywood director sends her packing, she realizes if she wants to stay in L.A., she may have to become a normal girl after all. But normal has never been in the cards for her. Strange things keep happening wherever she goes, a red-eyed shadow no one else sees is stalking her, and to top it off, she may be falling in love again, with either the bookish guy next door, or Hollywood’s hottest leading man.
But everything isn’t what it seems. Someone’s keeping secrets from her. Is it her new friends at the apartment building she moved into? Or is it Ryan Everheart, the actor who wants to sweep her off her feet? And why are her feet suddenly floating off the ground?
It’s enough to drive a girl insane. All Maxie wants to do is ride off into the sunset with her one true love and find a killer pair of Manolo Blahniks on the way. But how’s a girl supposed to focus on a love life and shopping when everywhere she turns someone or something is trying to kill her?
