Review: Magical Midlife Madness - K.F. Breene
"Happily Ever After" wasn't supposed to come with a do-over option. But when my husband of twenty years packs up and heads for greener pastures and my son leaves for college, that's exactly what my life becomes.
This time, though, I plan to do things differently. Age is just a number, after all, and at forty I'm ready to carve my own path.
Eager for a fresh start, I make a somewhat unorthodox decision and move to a tiny town in the Sierra foothills. I'll be taking care of a centuries old house that called to me when I was a kid. It's just temporary, I tell myself. It'll just be for a while.
That is, until I learn what the house really is, something I never could've imagined.
Thankfully forty isn't too old to start an adventure, because that's exactly what I do. A very dangerous adventure that will change my life forever. I have a chance to start again, and this time, I make the rules.

Magical Midlife Madness is the first book in K.F. Breene's new series staring 40 year old Jessie, a divorced mum whose son has left home for college, who is now ready to start living life on her own terms. Jessie spent the last 18 years caring for her family and putting everyone else's needs above her own so she thinks its about time she had her own adventure. While Jessie is trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life she's taken a job as the caretaker at a mansion in a tiny mountain town. She's expecting a relaxing break from reality but ends up getting a lot more than she bargained for.
So many heroines are in their 20s so it was really nice to come across one who has lived a little, Jessie may not be as fit as she once was and she may have a few insecurities but she's also had a good life and comes with a wealth of experience. It stands her in good stead when she's thrown into the middle of a supernatural community full of people who are used to hiding in plain sight. I loved how confident Jessie is, she knows exactly what she wants and she's willing to work to achieve her goals.
The town is full of fun, quirky characters and there was so much humour in this story. I can't wait to see where things go as Jessie learns more about the community and we start to see how the house magic works. I can already tell this is going to be a brilliant series but that comes as no surprise when it's written by K.F. Breene!
