Review: Not a Chance by Maureen Bonatch


Not a Chance (The Enchantlings, #2)Not a Chance by Maureen L. Bonatch
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once again, we are in the little town with no name, which is either your idea of home or a crossroads to hell. A cast of demons and demi-demons roams the highways and byways. Once in a while, a human makes the mistake of stopping at the local bar, Last Call, and stirs up trouble.

Hope works at this bar/dive and has made the town with no name her real home, at last. She has a family: the memories of Destiny, her twin, deceased Aunt Tessa, who appears in mirrors, Aunt Ruthie, the bakery chef, and her brother, Chance. He has an annoyingly cute-as-a-button, well-endowed girlfriend, Berta, who drives Hope crazy with her bubbly behavior. Berta offers unrequested advice on how to bar tend and flirts with any male in a ten mile radius.

Hope’s hunk of a boyfriend has his own demons, but he always comes through for her. However, when a nosy reporter arrives in Last Call and begins stalking her, Hope is at the end of her rope. In a rage, she does what Griffith has told her not to do: use her powers to drain someone almost to the point of death. He takes the reporter out of her hands, literally, and tells her to think about who she wants to be. Hope is reflecting on this advice when the bubbly Berta disappears—and now she has to find her brother’s annoying girlfriend before she bubbles no more.

This is the second book in this enchanting Enchantlings series. This story can be read as a stand-alone, but why would you deny yourself the pleasure of the first book, Destiny Calling? Come for the snark, stay for the supernatural siblings and spirits. I give this book five magic mirrors and a warning: You may never want to leave the town with no name.
