My mother says trouble began the day I was born, but I’d disagree. I think trouble started the day I crashed my broomstick into an undercover cop car. My name is Ainsley Shaw, and I’m a Guardian Witch. The title sounds fancier than it is—really, I’m a glorified bodyguard for magical people. I love my job, and I’m good at it… most days. Except today. While I was flying around My mother says trouble began the day I was born, but I’d disagree. I think trouble started the day I crashed my broomstick into an undercover cop car.

Now, the police think I’m trouble—not least of all Detective Hotterson, the one responsible for denting my shiny new broomstick.

"...books had their own sort of magic" - Ainsley And boy was this book full of magic! I don't know how Gina is able to create these paranormal worlds and spin her words to make you believe what you are reading is in fact a hidden reality that you are not privileged enough to be included in. The humor and love in this story are on point, it's a little lighter than the other Magic & Mixology books, but it is a fun read and the magical ideas are amazing. The allure of the library sensational, what I wouldn't give to have one hour in the enchanting place. I adored Ainsley's family, her father, at times reminded me of Belle's father from Beauty and the Beast, with all of his inventions. Her mother, was overbearing at times, but really... what mother isn't? If you are looking for mystical story that will make you laugh, swoon, and be immersed in an enchanted world, look no further, you have found what you are looking for.

    One of the funniest of the magical LaManna One of her funnier magic books. Recommended. Even if you read it after you've read the Mixologist series, the cast of characters are mostly different you won't feel like you've heard the story before. It's basically a spinoff in a different location.

    This is significantly better than most of the witch-themed cozy mysteries I've read. The characters feel 3 dimensional - not 2 - and I didn't feel like mush brain motoring through something written to a 5th grade level. That says a lot as an "import from Kindle" shows I have over 30 I've chomped through that I don't even want to review.

    These are my Happily Ever After Novel Thoughts... What a great start to a spinoff series! We first met Ainsley in Hex on the Beach as Lily Locke's assistant. Now we get to dive into her life after she successfully ends her job with Lily. I love Ainsley and the way she thinks. She is a breathe of fresh air. Her father is quite a delusional genius as well and the pair of them are perfect together as only a dad and his girl can be. Grab your magical broomstick and fly into Ainsley's life!

    You won't be able to put his book down! Full of Fun, Mystery, Romance and laughter Gina LaManna is incredible. A spin off of the Magic and Mixology series. If you have read the books in that series which are ifantastic, you were introduced to Ainsley in the first book of that series. She was a "character" in that book and is definitely a Character all her own. I couldn't stop laughing at Ainsley's antics and her ability to get herself into a situation due to her being a Guardian!

She worked hard to get her position in the paranormal world and when she is put on a Hush Hush job by her boss she couldn't say no. The twists and turns and love interest that develops with the policeman she accidentally "bumps" into weaves an amazing fun storyline. And who could forget meeting Ainsley's kooky family! And of course the way Gina LaManna subtly reintroduces the island from the Magic and Mixology series into this series and twists it leaving us with a phenominal liff hanger leaves us wanting more ASAP! A can't miss read. I received an advance copy of this book, but voluntarily leave this review!

Gina LaManna has proven me again and again she has an amazing gift for storytelling and her imagination brings us great stories. It just seemed this time that the storyline was a bit too big for the size of the book. This plotline could have spanned several books or one - more expanded - novel. Harry Potter did not defeat his enemies in just 34 chapters, right? It all seemed a little fast and a bit easy. However, I totally enjoyed the things the author came up with like the library with the prophecies that turn to ashes and her dad's antics. I look forward to reading more about this crazy witch.

    Gina LaManna had me from the beginning in her fun and witty story of The Undercover Witch. “My mother says trouble began the day I was born, but I’d disagree. I think trouble started the day I crashed my broomstick into an undercover cop car.” Are you kidding me? Who would not be hooked after that first sentence? I love this book and I can’t wait until I get my hands on the second in the series. This book is like a well written Magic-gala. I would highly recommend it and I will be purchasing sev Gina LaManna had me from the beginning in her fun and witty story of The Undercover Witch. “My mother says trouble began the day I was born, but I’d disagree.

    The Undercover Witch is a spinoff of Gina LaManna's Magic & Mixology series. Ainsley Shaw was first introduced in Hex on the Beach as a Guardian tasked with protecting Lily Locke. When I saw that she was the main character in this series, I just had to read it. Ainsley is such a fun and unique character. Her parents are no exception! They are equally interesting and quirky. I'm very excited to see where Ainsley's adventures take her in the future. The Undercover Witch is a spinoff of Gina LaManna's Magic & Mixology series.

    Ainsley doesn't need to find trouble, she's a magnet This book can be read standalone, but references to Lily Locke come from "Hex on the Beach", another fun read. Ainsley is a Guardian, paranormal security. She gets assigned, undercover, to find out what the Frost King is up to. She has to uncover a prophecy, get in the house, then escape, help the Princesses, oh and get into tons of trouble on the way.

    A new spin off of the Hexed series, with some slight cross-overs. If you are unfamiliar with the Hexed series.. this is a lighthearted paranormal mystery with some romance. Plenty of humor. :) There is a little bit of suspense, but nothing too dark. The characters are fun and interesting. The story moves smoothly and quickly. It's a clean easy read. As with all of Gina's work, it is well written.

    Ainsley and Beck sitting in a tree! What more can you ask for? More, more, more. Follow Ainsley in a full tilt romp with suspense, action, intrigue and falling in love. Beck is a human cop who literally runs into Ainsley, find out what happens. Great add on to the Island series, can't wait for more with both.

    MAGIC Mysteries This is the story of a witch and how she helps the kingdom of Magic Inc. This is a new author and series for me. The story was very good and kept my attention throughout. The editing was good and the characters were well developed. I highly recommend this book and will be reading more of this series.

    First time author, for me. Really good cozy. Young woman, living as a human, is actually a witch. She goes on various assignments to help people. She falls for a mortal, who is a police officer. He has to decide, to give up the human World, for her World. Other quirky characters too.

    I finally enjoyed this one. I say, finally, because the book starts off real well, but then, stalls in the middle. I got bored and went to read something else. But, my curiosity got the best of me and I delved back in, ending up laughing through most of the rest. So, persevere, dear friends!

    This author really knows how to write. Her books never disappoint. While they aren't rocket science novels they are greatly entertaining and I thoroughly enjoyed this spin off of the magic and mixology series.

    Lots fun! I gave this book a five star rating for its ability to keep me entertained. So far I have really enjoyed the few books I have read by Gina and this one did not disappoint. I recommend it to anyone looking for a short easy lighthearted read.

    Enjoyable read We get to follow a query witch who gets into thing without really thinking about it but manages to come out on top. It is a secret world that exists beside humans and when they cross it is dealt with in one fashion or another.

    This was a stand alone book but connected to the Magic and Mixology Series that I read. The only main character in that series that shows up is Ainsley, who works for Magic, Inc. It was a nice addition and I hope Gina writes others to go with the series.

    Robin Siota Breeding

    A great character I enjoyed this spin-off of the magic and mixology series. I read it out of order but that didn’t really matter. Ainsley is a great character and it was fun to get to know her character better. I look forward to the next book in this series.
