Book Beginnings: The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling

Every Friday Book Beginnings hosted by Rose City Readers asks you to grab the book you are reading and share the first sentence or paragraph and then give your feelings on it or anything else that it inspires. Be sure to include the title and the author

Yesterday I finished Horseman by Christina Henry so since today is Friday and we do Book Beginnings...I thought we would start my new book off together!

The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling

I along with everyone on bookstagram I know ordered this book from Book of The Month so we are having a buddy read with it, which made me change up my reading a bit from what I was hoping to read next, but it is all good, I love getting together with everyone at the end of the month and talking about books ..


Nine years ago, Vivienne Jones nursed her broken heart like any young witch would: vodka, weepy music, bubble baths…and a curse on the horrible boyfriend. Sure, Vivi knows she shouldn’t use her magic this way, but with only an “orchard hayride” scented candle on hand, she isn’t worried it will cause him anything more than a bad hair day or two.

That is until Rhys Penhallow, descendent of the town’s ancestors, breaker of hearts, and annoyingly just as gorgeous as he always was, returns to Graves Glen, Georgia. What should be a quick trip to recharge the town’s ley lines and make an appearance at the annual fall festival turns disastrously wrong. With one calamity after another striking Rhys, Vivi realizes her silly little Ex Hex may not have been so harmless after all.

Suddenly, Graves Glen is under attack from murderous wind-up toys, a pissed off ghost, and a talking cat with some interesting things to say. Vivi and Rhys have to ignore their off the charts chemistry to work together to save the town and find a way to break the break-up curse before it’s too late.


Never mix vodka with witchcraft.
Vivi knew that. Not only had her aund Elaine said it about a thousand times, but it was also printed on dish towels and T-shirts, and ironically, shot glasses in Something Wicked, the store Aunt Elaine ran in downtown Graves Glen, Georgia.
It might've actually been the closest thein the Jones family had to a family motto.
But Vivi reasoned as she sank deeper into the bathtub and took another slurp of the vodka and cranberry concoction her cousin Gwyn had mad her, there had to be exceptions for broken hearts.


I am hoping that I get to spend a good portion of this afternoon reading into The Ex Hex, but as we all know, there are so many times life gets in our way of reading!
