While I liked this book, it didn't seem to me as exciting and mysterious as the previous books in the series. Selena's parents have bought a mansion in her town and have come to see it and stay awhile. Turns out, it is apparently haunted and scary and has driven her parents out of the house, and are trying to decide whether to keep it or sell it. Meanwhile, Selena has (of course) decided she needs to investigate, and things turn deadly. Selena is also injured, but decides she needs to continue investigating, even though her boyfriend (Calvin) has some serious misgivings about the whole thing. Selena is adamant about investigating, even with the danger. She basically thumbs her nose at her parents, Calvin, and the friends that discourage her and does what she wants to anyway. I just didn't feel that this book rose to the level of the previous 2 books, but am still going to follow the series.
This story kept me turning the pages—wanting to know what on earth (or hell) could be happening at Selena’s parent’s new mansion. The mysterious infestation has a very surprising cause—one that I totally did not see coming. As always, I look forward to Christine Pope’s next book (which is on pre-order) in this intriguing and exciting series. This voluntary review was made possible by reading an advance copy sent by the author through Bookfunnel, and Christine’s books are so good that I’ve purchased a copy of my own to add to my permanent library collection.
When her mom and step dad buys a house in her town she was leafy at 1st until things started going very wrong and when it goes 2 the extreme when a innocent man does things go from bad 2 worse but she will figure it out in time 2 help her parents do the rt thing. Is it demons or something else worse 2 contind with?... Find out asap!!
Household Demons is a great third read. We get to learn a bit about Archie, feel a bit of heat between Calvin and Selena, and get to meet Selina’s parents, who are not so sure about their daughter’s special abilities. . . at least at first. Mom and (step) Dad, Selina’s that is, surprise her by purchasing an exquisite mansion right in Globe! Did I say a haunted Victorian exquisite mansion? But when Selina tries to check it out, she dose not feel a thing! Ghosts? Demons? Something much more wicked? Things get a whole lot stranger before they start to make sense. Unfortunately, an explained death in the house adds to the daunting puzzle. Typical of Pope, with her endless creative mind, the way it concludes, is not at all what you expected. However, she very neatly ties up all the loose ends, leaving the reader satisfied and with a smile on their face. Household Demons is a delightful mix of suspense, humor and romance, an absolutely fun read for a warm summer weekend!
So, the saga continues with Christine Pope’s Hedgewitch for Hire Series Book 3 “Household Demons”. Selena Marx Globe’s Hedgewitch is having a quiet summer dealing with tourists navigating her Woo-Woo New Age store. A call from her mother and stepfather that they are on their way from SoCal to Globe because they purchased a haunted Victorian mansion in town alters her entire peaceful summer. Of course, all Selena wanted was to continue her ongoing romance with Calvin Standingbear, the very handsome law enforcement officer of the San Ramon Tribe. It was not to be for Selena, but to discover what or whom is in possession or haunting this beautiful old mansion. As always Christine’s imagination with her amazing stories takes you into adventures filled with suspense and excitement as Selena attempts to uncover this mystery. I highly recommend this book along with the others in this series.
This book continues the story of Selena in Globe, AZ about five months after arriving. She's still "in a developing relationship" with Calvin, feeding the "cursed cat" Archie, developing friends among the townsfolk, and starting to feel comfortable in her shop, Once in a Blue Moon. Then her mother and step-father buy a mansion in Globe and come to visit. Unfortunately, the mansion seems to be infested with demons. One investigator is found dead, but from the demons or accidentally is the question. Selena tries to help her parents, but the infestation is just too intense, so they go back to LA. Selena can't get past the mystery and continues the investigation. The source of the infestation and the exorcism give an unexpected, interesting twist to the story.
This is the latest installment in the Hedgewitch for Hire series and it was a very entertaining read. I really enjoyed the relationships in this book between Selena and her parents, her budding relationship with Calvin and her friendship with Josie. The mystery surrounding the demon possession was very good and a great conclusion to this book. Christine Pope does a very good job of bringing the state of Arizona and it’s wine culture to the reader….makes one want to take a road trip and experience both first hand. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
Selena's life is full of ups and downs, especially with her mom's visit and move to Globe. Oh boy... I just can't with Selena's mom. She refuses to acknowledge Selena's magic. But it was a good book, I will admit that Sheriff Calvin drives me up a wall with how he treats Selena. I enjoyed this book and I am excited for the next one. The mystery, suspense, and slow burn romance has been great at keeping me enthralled, Christine Pope has kept me on the edge of my seat with this series. I did receive an ARC but this does not affect my thoughts or opinions.
This is a NON-SPOILER REVIEW for Household Demons by Christine Pope. In the third book of the Hedgewitch for Hire we once again find Selena in trouble... or should I say that trouble once again finds Selena. Selena's mom comes to town and the trouble soon begins. I love that this series is a combination of mystery, slow burn romance and magic. Each story contributes to the moving the series forward, but can easily be read as stand alone.

Book three and once again Selena finds herself in trouble. It’s a fantastic well written story full of magic, mystery, suspense, family and a slow burn romance and be warned once you pick this up you will not be able to put this down. A haunted house, parents visiting , murder and a demon and you have one hell of an exciting story and a fantastic addition to this incredible series!
