A laugh till it hurts Literal Leigh Romance Diaries spin-off
Witches, Werebears, and Imps. Oh my!
Waiting for karma is fine - for the patient. But for the rest of us, it sure would be nice to give karma a little nudge every once in a while.
Too many dates that turned out to be losers or liars? Have a problem with two-faced backstabbers? And don't even start with the so-called customer service centers. There comes a day when enough is really, truthfully, enough already. For Kelly and Esmeralda, two snarky single witches, that day was yesterday. After applying their witchcraft to dish out a little magical payback, they realize they have a penchant for the dark art of revenge. And who's to say a witch can't make a few bucks with a talent like that?
Doing the odd job was fun and gratifying. Then along came an unusual client with a pitch for an idea, Karma Inc. Reality TV. The witches set up shop in the sleepy little town of Caldron Falls, Wisconsin. By enabling the good citizens to settle old scores, they hoped to transform the town into a virtual coliseum of televised revenge. It didn't take long before a few inconvenient and unexpected dead bodies began to pile up. To complicate matters, Caldron Falls just happens to have more than its fair share of paranormal creatures, not to mention a Chicago mobster seemingly bent on taking over the town.
Can Esmeralda and Kelly solve the rash of unexplained deaths before they get the blame and end up behind bars? What will Marie Laveau and the Witches Union have to say about this? And, as any fool knows, karma carries a roundtrip ticket.

I love urban fantasy, paranormal romance, YA, and dystopian. My favorite authors are Ilona Andrews and Kim Harrison.
I thought this book was a very enjoyable read. It made me laugh, the mystery was fun to solve as the book progress, and on top of witches, there were talking cats and a very sexy werebear!
Hollie Jackson is an incredible narrator! She had the perfect amount snarky sass! She preformed the book flawlessly! I have already purchased another Melanie James/Hollie Jackson book!
***I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
I laughed so much it hurt. This book was so much fun, I absolutely loved it. This book is a paranormal mystery. Karma Inc. Is a company to cause karma into the world when you have been wrong. Hollie Jackson was so much fun with her narrating, she kept your attention all the way through this story. This is my first book by Melanie James and I am hooked...I want more. I highly recommend this book, if you are looking for a fun entertaining story.
Kelly and Esmeralda! I love books that feature friendship between women. Kelly and Esmeralda kicked ass together, they were funny and fearless.
I also loved the premise of the book: this was a fun book, no angst about them being witches and the disadvantages of that. No , this book was all about the power Kelly and Esmeralda had and how they used it to do good (some people need a good kick) and I wish Karma Inc was real so I could hire their services.
Its really difficult to choose just 1 character. Kelly and Esmeralda are awesome. Barney is a hoot. The all ensemble contributed to the books awesomeness. So many funny moments.
Hollie is a great narrator. Again, I cant choose just one character, because they all stood out and thats a point in favor of Hollie: bringing t life such diverse point of views. The writing is top notch and so is the narration.
Barney. Crazy character and outrageous flirt.
Read the book, listen to the audiobook, which ever format you choose, I promise you hours of pure entertainment.
At the top! The voices Hollie Jackson does is amazing and Melanie James does a fantastic job at writing!!
The pizza guys wife!
Another great addition to the series. I love the little help with KARMA! Cause some folks just need a good dose and are long overdue! This time its Kelly, Esmeralda, Gertie and Randy (I missed Leigh and Lindsey though) making trouble. But some new characters were added to the mix! And Kelly finds a hot man! And of course what could go wrong with dishing out a little Karma?
This book was great. It is a fun witty paranormal mystery. It has witches and werebears, imps, vampires, demons and so on. I particularly liked the character of the frog. He was hilarious. I really loved the section where karma was going to bite the butt of a fake author for plagiarism! I love how this author combines reality with fantasy and it all makes sense.
The author, Melanie James did an awesome job on this book. I laughed from beginning to and. it was very entertaining. The narrator, Holly Jackson delivered a flawless narration to us with authentic accents and the works. Well done both of you! This was so good, I read / listened to the entire book in 1 day.
I received this audio book as a gift from a contest I won.
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
Nice world building, nice twists, good collection of characters. Could have rated higher, but many of the jokes were a bit sophomoric.
It was wonderful story to listen to. Hollie Jackson brought each character to life wonderfully. I look forward to reading and listening to more books in this series. Each of the characters was fun and very interesting.
I'm just a girl who loves stories!
YES! it's funny and entertaining
I love the way Melanie weaves humour, sarcasm, romance, magic and paranormal together in a real life believable way ... I want all these characters to be REAL and live in my town
OMG ... I adore Hollie Jackson and how she reads ... all her characters are my favorites
Melanie's audio books should come with a warning ... don't try to eat while listening ... it's dangerous to laugh and chew food
I LOVED this book and will definitely be listening to more
Hilariously funny read
The book is very similar to the Literal Leigh series that it is a spin off from
all of it, it was hilarious
it made me laugh
Karma Inc. by Melanie James was a great read. It was hilarious and made me laugh so hard at times. Kelly and Esmerelda are two witches that find a knack for dark magic. They start a new business called Karma In. to help people who want to give karma a nudge. But as it always does for the friends, things don't ever really go right for the witches. I loved reading this spin-off of the Literal Leigh series. I can't wait to read more by Melanie James.
Absolutely! Between Melanie's writing and Hollie bring it to life, you could not have asked for a better story!
There is no other book I would compare Karma to! Melanie's entire series (starting with Leigh) has been something entirely different from anything I have read! These books are one of a kind!
Yes! Once you turn this on, you do not want to shut it off! I find it easier to start listening to this at night when I will have no interruptions and I am able to listen to as much as I want!
Witches, Shifters, and Imps OH MY!!
This book had me laughing right until the end. It was such a light and comical read, but did have a great story line as well. I thought it was written very well and that made for a quick read. I absolutely loved every character in the story and thought the author did an amazing job with the main characters. I loved Kelly because she was skeptical yet goes with the flow kind of witch. Barney the Imp made the story for me. Who doesn't love a rude, smart *** imp? He was always up to no good and when he got caught in the ceiling fan I thought I would die from laughter. Also, I thought Gabe brought a lot to the book. I'm not going to spoil it for anyone, but he's not what you think. Paranormal reads are my favorite and this book had it all. If you like books with a variety of paranormal creatures who make you laugh with every page, this is your book. Reviewed for Headtripping Books by Leandra.
