666 Park Avenue, Book 2
Synopsis: Jane Boyle married her prince charming and moved into his upper east side castle—but she didn’t get her fairy-tale ending.
It’s hard to live happily ever after when you discover your demanding and controlling mother-in-law is literally a witch, determined to steal the magical powers you didn’t even know you had. Jane narrowly avoided Lynne Doran’s clutches when she escaped on her wedding day, and has been hiding out in New York City. But she can’t hide forever.
When Jane learns of the one thing Lynne wants most, she sets out to provide it, hoping her good turn will persuade her mother-in-law to stop hunting her. Unfortunately, Jane’s daring plan will send her right back into the witches’ den — the Doran clan’s multistory town house on Park Avenue. But thanks to a tricky spell, blond architect Jane will be transformed into Ella, a dark beauty with a whole new look… and all of Jane’s budding powers. Though the stakes are life or death, nobody said “Ella” couldn’t have a little fun along the way, too.
Review: This is the book 2 of the 666 Park Avenue series. I think that it is possible to read it without reading the previous one, there is enough information provided by the author. You will find Melliane’s opinion of the book 1 here: http://bit.ly/1MmU5zV I feel the same way 🙂
The book begins where stopped the first one. After their marriage, Jane and Malcolm fled their ways separately to escape Lynn plans (the witch mother-in-law). Jane decides to hide where they’ll search her least: in their sight, in New York.
Jane needs something she can find only at 666 Park Avenue, for that, she will not hesitate to turn into Ella in order not to be recognized and to use her relationship with a man to have access to the house.
Jane has more confidence in her, especially in the Ella’s skin. I found that confidence in the writing of the author. In fact, we feel that the G. Pierce and her character evolve simultaneously. Well, we find the same protagonists as in the preceding book. The plot is not too complex, but it is offset by the pace of the book, once I got it into the chapters, I did not want to put it down.
To read if you liked volume 1 or if you want a quick read, a little different than the books about witches that we currently find, and if you are not bothered by the final cliffhanger.
This was a tv series right, never got past ep 1 there
Not super excited about the cliffhanger, but otherwise this sounds like a fun read overall!
Fantastic review Cass. I love the cover, and its always good when you are able to slip into a story
I haven’t heard of this series before, but it looks great. I love witch stories.
This does sound like a fun read even with the cliffhanger and I really do like that cover!
Im not familiar with this series, sadly. I like the premise though.
I remember really wanting to read this series and there was a short lived tv series, I had forgotten all about it. Thanks for the reminder.
I believe this was a TV show (or similar).
Oh I read the first book but that seems like it was ages ago. I might have to try the second one. Good to know that I don’t have to read the first one since I probably forgot most of that one. 🙂
Oh my likey the cover and premise!!
Huh, this series does look interesting! 😀 Now I’m intrigued, IS this the one that has a tv show?? I’ve seen that on Netflix but haven’t watched.
Oh wow, I forgot about this series! I won this book years ago but hadn’t read the first one yet. Then I saw it was turned into a TV series. Dang, I have to look that up now.
Then I must read the first one. I just love that cover.
