Very funny and entertaining. So accurate about midlife issues and then add in the fun woo woo. And gimme more eye candy with a sweet personality- looking forward to the next one. This one was a graphic audio and some stuff was great but other sounds were a bit distracting or humorous. Not sure what I'll get for the next in the series.

Vermakelijk en prettig te lezen boek. Het eerste deel in een grote serie. Jessie is sinds kort gescheiden en heeft besloten om ergens anders opnieuw te beginnen. Dat doet ze in een klein dorpje waar ze vroeger als kind een keer geweest is met het gezin van haar beste vriendin Diane en waar ze zich prettig voelde. Ze neemt de baan aan als beheerder van een oud huis. In het dorp maakt ze kennis met Niamh, Edgar, Earl (Mr. Tom) en de knappe Austin Steele, de ongekroonde burgemeester van het dorp. Maar dan gebeuren er vreemde dingen. Het huis heeft onverwachte gangen en kamers en ook haar nieuwe vrienden hebben vreemde kenmerken. Leuk eerste deel.… (mais)

Series Info/Source: This is the 10th book in the Leveling Up series. I borrowed this on ebook through Kindle Unlimited.

Thoughts: This was a well done continuation of the Leveling Up series, I enjoyed it a lot. If you are still reading this series 10 books in, then I think you will enjoy this book. This series has gotten to be a bit like a soap opera at this point (am I dating myself by using that comparison?). We hear from many different characters throughout this book and they are all dealing with a number of different issues that all somehow (kind of) tie into Momar (the super evil mage we have yet to meet).

You hear some from Nessa and Sebastian but for most of the book they are off plotting on their own. Most of the book is told from Jessie's POV, with some small sections being told from other characters' POVs. Jessie is struggling to recover emotionally from the fall out in the last book. To add to that stress, her ex-husband wants her to spend the holidays with him and meet his new fiancee. It was intriguing to see back to where Jessie came from, and I loved that her son Jimmy was in the book more too. Additionally, we get to learn more about Niamh's past. This was provided some excellent back story to these characters.

Very little progress is made in the broader story involving Momar. However, this broader story does creep forward a little bit. This book was similar to the last book which took us on a story that confronted Austin's past, while this one has us confronting Jessie's past. The whole zany crew is here, and it is as crazy and funny to read as all of the other books.

There are some serious parts here. Jessie is forced to confront the emotional abuse that her ex, Matt, put both her and Jimmy through. We also see Matt's new fiancee struggling with similar abuse. The book does take a bit of a side journey into discussing this sort of controlling abuse that minimizes a woman and forces them to both think they are and actually be financially dependent on a controlling man.

I am not sure where the story is going at this point, but I am sure that I am incredibly entertained by this series. I love the characters, and can't wait to see what zany situations they are put in to next!

My Summary (5/5): Overall I really continue to enjoy this series. The characters are highly entertaining, and there is a lot of humor and fun in here. I love how our characters support each other as well. The main story about Momar doesn't make much progress but it is still slowly moving forward and I have enjoyed the side diversions that we are being taken on. I look forward to the next installment in this series.
