Publisher's Summary

If Leigh has learned anything this summer, it's that magic can be chaotic. Despite some headline-making disasters in her last diary, Leigh is eternally hopeful. With Four-bitten Fangtasy behind her, Leigh decides to write a little paranormal erotica with her newest disasterpiece, Bangin' the Billion-were. She even takes on a rehash of the popular YA dystopian genre in her novella, Regurgitant. It seems that even the editing of other authors' writing can make her unwittingly fire up her literal witchcraft. Leigh finds out how bad things can get when her friends ask her to edit their own cowboy-biker book, Steel Stetsons. Despite the flurry of writing, Leigh's romantic heart is racing. Her boyfriend, Hunter, will finally graduate from the Chicago Police Academy. Will Leigh and Hunter finally be able to enjoy some quality time on a camping trip? What will Leigh think of Hunter's unique family? What is Luna capable of when pushed to an act of desperation?

It seems Randy "Johnson" (designer at Paranormal Chic) and Gertie have unwittingly uncovered a new mystery for Leigh and her hapless coven to sort out. Now the upcoming Witches Halloween Gala is in jeopardy, not to mention the future of civilization. Follow these magical misfits as they travel halfway around the world to a hexed Scottish Castle and take on the very essence of evil in Hopeful Leigh.

Clever and Witty, Laugh Out Loud Comedy Continues!

Where does Hopeful Leigh rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The Literal Leigh Series are my all time favorites. Amazingly, this series keeps up the pace of hilarious comedy and lovable characters with down to earth personalities we can all relate to. I've listened to each audio book in the series 3 times already and I can't wait for the next book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hopeful Leigh?

Either the "dog toy" incident, or the gang's arrival at the hexed Scottish castle. Or the "calves" so many to choose from. Like all the Leigh Series books, they are loaded with gags. For example, the author is very good at writing in the seemingly unintentional double entendre that later is the cause of catastrophe. It's very witty, very clever.

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

Oh yeah! I loved her voice on the Dakota Cassidy books and Hollie Jackson is the perfect narrator for this series. She nails the accents and adds the perfect inflections for the comedy. I can't compare my favorites-apples to oranges, I just love these romantic comedies with a paranormal twist.

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

Bangin' The Billion-were!

Any additional comments?

If you love romantic comedy, you'll love this series. Just love it!

Imaginative, hysterically funny and a bit naughty.

This series just keeps getting better. This one kept me in stitches. If you want laugh out loud funny and a plot that keeps you highly entertained and guessing, get this one now! The narration is top notch and the writing beyond imaginative. The length is perfect for whiling away a snowy evening. There is a raging blizzard outside, but thanks to this wonderful book, I could care less! Melanie, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

Cute

Another cute, quirky listen. The narrator does a great job keeping Leigh light and funny but still a bit realistic. This entire series is cute and fun!
