Publisher's Summary

How does a girl become a witch? By accident, of course! Leigh Epstein is a grief stricken and lonely elementary school teacher that is devastated by the brutal and unexpected death of her true love at the hands of a careless writer. She overcomes her grief by taking matters in her own hands and takes up a little romance writing to resurrect her vampire-werewolf book-boyfriend. Leigh gets more than she bargained for when she discovers that every steamy erotic scene she creates is magically reenacted by her family, friends and coworkers. In her hilarious first diary, Leigh unwittingly sets her parents up for a weekend dinner party that they will never forget. She has two weeks to find out what her new found magic is capable of. Can she prevent a wild erotic encounter that could devastate her sweet parent’s marriage? What and who else will get caught up in her magic spells? Listen to a story so witchingly fun, that you won’t be able to put it down and you will be eagerly awaiting the rest of the Literal Leigh Romance Diaries!

    "Throughly enjoyable!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Accidental Leigh to be better than the print version?

    Personally, I enjoyed both equally. Hollie does a good job bringing Leigh to life.


    Have you listened to any of Hollie Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first Audible I've listened to that has been narrated by Hollie, but I think she did a wonderful job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Either in print or audio, this book has me laughing. Leigh and her adventures with her witchy writing desk are pure entertainment.


    Any additional comments?

    Leigh has some serious mishaps in her accidental witchy adventures. Either she does't realize what she is doing or it just doesn't work out quite the way she hopes.

    Story
    "Watch out who your friends are!!!! LOL"

    I really enjoyed this and didn't think I would. Sorry now I left it so long in my library without so much as a glance. It is expensive for the length but I enjoyed it so much I will be purchasing book 2. Had to pay attention as the story skips from real life to fiction in a heartbeat and I did get lost a couple of times but that's the beauty of the rewind.

    It was hilarious, actually made me laugh out "very" loud when everyone was asleep and I just couldn't stop. So glad I gave this book a chance. The characters were well developed and very likeable, all of them. JUST TOO SHORT! Mini cliffhanger at the end, just enough to peek my interest and make sure I need to get 2nd instalment.

    The narrator, Hollie Jackson was soooo goood I had to check whether she was the author. It felt like she new the characters so well and the story just flowed from her lips. Melanie James can be very satisfied because Hollie did an amazing job. Sadly many times a narrator can completely kill a book and other times no matter how good the narrator, the book just hasn't "got it". In this case, both the book and the narration complement eachother to perfection.

    "Accidental Leigh is hysterically funny"


    Accidental Leigh is the first book in the Literal Leigh Romance Diaries. Leigh is a teacher who happens to love to read. She decides that over the summer break she should write a novel. She starts looking for a desk and finds one for free. She soon realizes that this desk is not just a normal desk when things she writes start happening in real life.

    This book is hysterical. All of the crazy scenes that Leigh writes had me laughing out loud when they became reality and they never had quite the same outcome that you would expect. Ms James has a way with words and she had me engaged from the first chapter and I couldn't put this book down. I cannot wait to read the next book in that series, Serious Leigh.

    "Laugh out loud funny"

    This was such a fun book to read. It was witty and charming. I found myself laughing out loud. I just can't tell you enough how funny and entertaining this book is! The only thing I hated about the book is I have to wait for the next installment. Don't miss this funny and sexy paranormal romance.

    This series is one of my favs. I had previously read this book, but listening to it on Audible made me fall in love with it all over again.. I cannot wait to listen to the whole series. I'm sure I will be listening to it again and again. Melanie did an Amazing job writting this series. Hollie Jackson did an Amazing job bringing this book to life.

    "amazing narration for an amazing book"
    Where does Accidental Leigh rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    All of Melanie James' audio books have been great in my opinion.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well Leigh of course! I've read almost the full series already so I know how well Melanie builds her other characters...stay tuned for her next release!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Her interactions with Luna ...don't want to give anything away.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Don't drink and view....


    Any additional comments?

    I'm so glad these are being developed into audio books. And I really look forward to hearing the "New" characters come to life.

    "Comedy perfected! Laugh out loud fun."
    If you could sum up Accidental Leigh in three words, what would they be?

    Hilarious, Creative, Fun


    What other book might you compare Accidental Leigh to and why?

    I've read the entire series of 5 books so far and each one gets better than the previous. It's all written in such a creative and way that you fall in love with each of the characters. I can't compare it to anything else I've read but it reminds me like I've watching a romantic comedy or a funny sitcom on television.


    What about Hollie Jackson’s performance did you like?

    She does such an excellent job of getting the timing right for the humor and she brings a unique voice to each of the characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Leigh is just an average single girl that accidentally comes upon a desk that magically recreates everything she writes into disastrously funny reality; for her close friends and family.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the entire series and I couldn't wait for the audio version. Even better than the book! I am checking every day for the second book Seriously to come out on audio!

    "Ridiculous Story"

    The main character is very shallow and frivolous. I was hoping for it to humorous. I did not find it so. The story line was weak as well. The narrator was good.
