Publisher's Summary

For some people, time travel is a fantastic daydream, but for Gertie O'Leary, it's just another magically induced accident.

Just when you thought things couldn't get weirder at the Paranormal Plantation, Gertie decides to jazz the place up with another DIY project.

Fuchsia's a great color, don't you agree?

Sure, it's great. But after Gertie mixes her favorite color with a heavy dose of untried witchcraft, creating a strange time-warping side effect, she and her paranormal posse land in the court of King Henry VIII.

You know what isn't great? Your friend loses her memory and tries to steal your boyfriend, you can't figure out how to get back home, and, worse, you're accused of witchcraft!

Add in a pair of mischievous Sasquatches along with a curious dragon, and it spells certain doom for Gertie and her friends as they take their magical buffoonery to the 16th century!

Gertie and her paranormal friends

The names of the characters had me lmao! Gertie gets into magical trouble everywhere she goes and it makes for a brilliant story! Melanie James has a great imagination and she writes some of my favorite books. Hollie Jackson is the perfect narrator for Gertie and I love her Irish brogue.

Great Book!

Any additional comments?

This is a great book; this is the second book in the Tales from the Paranormal Plantation Series written by Melanie James and narrated by Hollie Jackson. Gertie decides to jazz up the Paranormal Plantation with another DIY project. She wants to paint the kitchen a fuchsia color, but when she mixes and uses the paint with a heavy dose of untried witchcraft, creating a strange time warping side effect. The next she realizes her and her paranormal posse land in the court of King Henry VII. This book has a wonderful story and well developed characters

The narrator Hollie Jackson did a wonderful job, and was very easy to listen too. She did a great job with the different characters and their voices.

If you are looking for a great book, then you need to read/listen to this book. I can’t wait to read the next book by this author. Once I started listening to this book, I didn’t want to stop until the end.

A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Hollie Jackson is wonderful as Gertie O'Leary

Any additional comments?

Melanie James Back to The Fuchsia narrated by Hollie Jackson is a wonderfully fun story about a witch who managed to find mischief everywhere she turns. Hollie does a wonderful job with Gerties Irish accent, as well as the other characters. I can't wait for more!

Another favorite from Melanie James

What did you love best about Back to the Fuchsia?

EVERYTHING!! Gertie is still one of my favorite characters in this series.

What other book might you compare Back to the Fuchsia to and why?

Compare to another book that is not one of Melanie's - no comparison, as it is definitely an original story. I guess if I had to compare it to anything - I could compare this series to Robyn Petermans Hot Damn Series.. Why? because they are both too funny and original stories I can listen to over and over again.

What about Hollie Jackson’s performance did you like?

Hollie Jackson always does an amazing job. She is great at giving each character a great voice and amazing personality that completes the visual.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and I listened to it twice and will probably listen to again.

Any additional comments?

This book is a must if you enjoy listening to hilarious books that keep you giggling and guessing.

Loved it!

Gertie goes back in time! And we all know how much fun Gertie can be. I loved this story, and listening to it made it even more fun! The narrator is great and the story kept me hooked (and laughing) throughout. Highly recommend! I was gifted an audiobook in exchange for my honest review.

Back to Fuchsia

Another fun tale from the paranormal plantation. I just love this group of witches! Dragons, time travel, ghost, a pair of sasquatches, and painting a kitchen are all in a few days work with this group. Melanie James does an amazing job weaving this fun tale and keeps you laughing through the whole book. Hollie Jackson does an amazing job with the narration of this book too.
