About this ebook

As a forty-three-year-old, newly divorced, single mom, I know two things for certain, starting over sucks, and magic isn’t real. At least that’s what I thought. I mean, starting over really does stink, but when it comes to magic, I have to rethink everything.

I’ve spent the last year since my ex left me going through the motions. Get up. Work. Care for a grumpy teenager. Cook dinner. Go to bed. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

Nothing changes... Until it does.

After bidding on a box of old books at an estate auction, I’m experiencing changes. 

And I’m not talking about menopause. 

My garden gnome Linda has come to life. No, really. Her name is Linda, and she never shuts up. A chonky cat with a few secrets of his own has adopted me. And a gorgeous professor of the occult tells me I’m a witch.

Right now, I’m not sure who’s crazier—me, Linda or the hottie professor. 

If this is my new reality, it’s nature’s cruel midlife trick. I’m learning fast that earth spells might be easy, but they aren’t cheap. All magic exacts a toll, and if I don’t master the elements, the elements will be the death of me.

Earth Spells Are Easy is a dynamic thrill ride of a book. The heroine is trying to rebuild her life and take care of her teenaged on when she suddenly discovered she's a powerful witch. Or at least she will be when and if she can learn to contol her powers.

This is a fabulous new book with great characters as usual but it a great new storyline that is very unique. I really enjoyed reading this book and I think anyone who enjoys paranormal books 13 and I could read this and enjoy it. And I need a Linda and an imp in my life

Iris & Keir Gee, she was middle-aged and for that, she got divorced, and more, oh not just menopause, but a new...ability or job or curse. She was not sure what to call it yet. At an attempted set up by her sister, she met Keir who was to mean a whole lot in her future and we aren't talking romance. Well, that is to be determined. A set of old books from an estate sale set off her scary new abilities. (She just had to learn how to use them in a cram-for-finals time frame.) There are lots of characters to meet, some human, some who-knows-what. Some friend some foe. Figuring what side they were on was not gonna be easy. Meanwhile, her teenaged son was going through a lot from the divorce and his dad's decisions. Her family of siblings are on her side and want to help her live life to the fullest. Then there is Linda. A garden gnome--or living when she is teaching with her learn-from-mistakes method. Action, surprises, bad guys, good guys, temptation and so much more. A true world-built-by-Renee. Great start to a new series. Can't wait for more.

USA Today Bestselling author Renee George writes paranormal mysteries and romances because she loves all things supernatural and whodunit. When she’s not writing about mystery-solving werecougars or the adventures of a hapless psychic, she is owned by her two cats and a two dogs  She currently resides in Mid-Missouri with her family and spends her non-writing time doing really cool watching TV and cleaning up dog poop.

Her paranormal women’s fiction series, Nora Black Midlife Psychic Mysteries, came about as a direct result of wanting to read about characters her age who still had gas in the tank for romance, adventure, and the best friendships.
