Get into more TROUBLE with The Lynlee Lincoln Series Book Two. And Remember MAUCs Series One is Free

Lynlee Lincoln isn’t just a witch, she’s also a Neutralizer. Her job is a juggling act to keep magical and undead clients out of trouble. But getting back together with her old flame throws one more ball into the mix and romance with a guy who has two kids can get complicated. When her old mentor asks her to investigate the goings-on of a dark witch, things turn messy. The witch is stalking supernatural creatures to collect ingredients for a potion that Lynlee can’t seem to figure out.

To keep those closest to her from becoming the next victims, she may have to confront the demons within herself.

~My Thoughts~
Lynlee Lincoln is such a fun character to read about! She’s sassy, tough, magical, and someone that has a big heart, a heart that can get her into trouble sometimes. Lynlee is a witch trying to balance her time between her love and helping out her supernatural clients get out of sticky situations. It’s always fun seeing how her clients get into trouble, some of them can be quite funny. But the creatures Mrs. Hardin brings to the pages make me smile the most because they’re creatures that aren’t normal ones we get to read a lot about, they’re usually more the secondary types. So being able to return to this world again put a smile on my face.
Tangled Up in Trouble, just like the first in the series Trolling for Trouble, sucked me in and wouldn’t let me go. All I wanted to do was read this charming novella. It hypnotizes you with its colorful and magical world. With how it ended you’ll be hoping for a third one to be written, you’ll be dying to know what happens next with this cast of characters.
And boy is it a cast of characters! You got a witch, the sandman, a nymph, a werecat, a werewolf/vampire, a goblin, and cupid! Yes cupid and more! Seems like a lot huh? Trust me, all these stories blend and flow so well into Lynlee’s life and you’ll be dying for more when you finish! Mrs. Hardin has done an absolutely wonderful job. She’s created such a fun world to escape into!
I love how Lynlee is proud to be a witch and one that’s trying to balance her two lives (A bit refreshing from Young Adult). And it just got a little bit harder as she’s back with an old flame who happens to have two kids of his own. That definitely can damper the romance in certain situations, like how you get all hot and heavy (with the kids fast asleep in their beds) on the couch when all of a sudden his son walks into the room making him drop you on the floor haha. Many laugh out loud moments for sure! But at the same time there are heart wrenching moments when Lynlee starts seconding guessing and afraid she might scare her love away again.
Overall, I am a BIG fan of Mrs. Hardin’s MAUCs series. It’s completely fun, refreshing, and original. One world I hope she continues to write because the ending does have an opening for another one. In Tangled Up in Trouble Lynlee discovers more of herself and finally lets the power flow through all the while trying to have a second chance with a man she has always loved!
It will take possession over you
