Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Great first in a series (although be sure to read the short story in “Christmas Crackers” collection) with a MC surrounded by powerful beings, human and otherwise, while she attempts to discover her own purpose and powers.
I stumbled upon this author while reading a collection of short stories that included another author I enjoy. Her style is captivating and that makes reading her stories quick work. I look forward to reading more.

The Christmas story in the Christmas Crackers compilation is the first time I have read Ms Larsen and Phoebe Monday. While the author does an excellent job on plot and character development, she has absolutely no idea how to write a sentence. Most of the book is just phrases and run on sentences without a noun or a verb. I am trying to get through it because the storyline is very good, but the grammar is SO bad it is distracting, so much so I had to stop and write this review.

Death Warmed Over Phoebe Monday Paranormal Cozies Book 1 I really enjoyed this new series from Patti Larson. A little bit different than her other books, but thats a good thing! Phoebe Monday is part of a family of witches that all live together. But she’s the daughter that never should have been. In other words; you have an older witch, the Crone; a parent, the Mother; the daughter, the Maiden. Usually that is it! The Triquetra, or Triple Godess. But Phoebe happened! As the youngest daughter, she’s, well, a witch. Within the Monday family there isn’t a place for her. She’s the misfit! But, can Phoebe find her place in the world? With a zany bunch of characters right out of the minds of excellence, comes Phoebe, her Art friends and other such people. Ms. Larson incorporates a bunch of non-conventional characters into the book, which makes me lover her even more! She has drawn them with thin lines that i’m sure will broaden as the series continues. At this point Phoebe is ready to call it quits and leave the house to become her own person. The painting she’s doing should give her enough to do so. But when the painting becomes more than just a painting, and the people become more than just people, will Phoebe be able to segregate the two and complete the commission she’s being paid for? Can’t wait for more from this series! I love it!
