    The fifth book in this series was my least favourite so far. It was an OK story but slow going. This time Miss Elva is the one that needs to "bailed out"... almost literally. It is a stand alone novel but I would still recommend reading the series in order since there are always some tidbits strewn in that give away important things of one or several previous installments. A very fun series over all. The fifth book in this series was my least favourite so far. It was an OK story but slow going.

    I really enjoyed the fifth installment of this series. I love that we see new spells each book, and I’m excited to witness Althea coming into her power—both magically and personally. The tension between characters felt natural instead of forced. I think—hope—the triangle is over. I’m not holding my breath like I did in the epilogue when I knew “That Guy” would make an appearance. Rosalita was a fun surprise and Miss Elva is a hoot as always.

    Wonderful series. Magic, romance and mystery with a quirky set of characters. Althea is starting to figure out her boyfriend situation, is working on being more 'adult' and as always, smack dab in the middle of the murder mystery. Magic plays a bigger role in this book. I'm already looking forward to the next one. Wonderful series. Magic, romance and mystery with a quirky set of characters.

    I’m going to say first that I did not love Miss Elva this book. Had a friend of mine gotten a bunch of reporters landed on my front porch for leaking information I don’t tell everyone about, I’d be hard pressed to forgive them. Whether or not they had good intentions. That being said, hopefully her later apology is the end of her very out of character self comportment. As for the rest of the people and the story, it was great. Beau’s restaurant finally opens at the end, and I can’t wait to see h I’m going to say first that I did not love Miss Elva this book.

As for the rest of the people and the story, it was great. Beau’s restaurant finally opens at the end, and I can’t wait to see how much time we can spend there and what he may cook up for people. Luna and Thea got further into Thea’s magickal ability. And the murder and solving of it was a good story. A little twist at the end made it perfect. Add in a new friend of Rafe’s and it was funny also. I am looking forward to the next book.

    The Althea Rose series of books are witty and fun mysteries throwing some magic in the mix as well. This one was about a reality show wanting Althea and Miss Alva to star. Althea is not the least bit interested but Miss Elva gets a little caught up in the spotlight. Miss Elva finds herself in trouble as a suspect in a murder investigation. This book, so far, was a little slower going for me. I still enjoyed it. I love the characters in the series.

    Five times tequila! I honestly LOVE to read Tricia O'Malley books! Her wit and fantastical imagination makes them such a pleasure to read. And this one is especially so. Tequila Key is a small town along the highway to all the Florida Keys.

    Althea sees her friends, Miss Elva and Luna, along with herself in a gossip magazine. The next thing you know there are pesky reporters all over town and a producer that wants them for a psychic showdown type program. Of course there's a murder and Althea and friends solve it in a way that only they can. I love the laughs I get while reading and the characters, plot and setting are all great. I'm ready to read whatever Tricia O'Malley writes next! Althea sees her friends, Miss Elva and Luna, along with herself in a gossip magazine.

    I received an advanced reader copy that in no way influences my reviews. Althea and her friends are back. Reports and tv stations are flooding the area to get the scoop on psychics. Althea and Luna are not interested of course, wanting to stay in the background and work at their store. Murder, mystery, and magic all mix up in this. I did miss Trace and Beau, they usually have bigger parts of the story and I missed what they bring to the story.

    Wonderful Read! Althea Rose and her friends find themselves embroiled in yet another "fine mess". With the bombastic Miss Elva, pompous ghost pirate, Rafe, steadying influence and best friend Luna, Althea solves another murder as she really just wants a stress free life! Thoroughly enjoyable and with the murderer being someone you never suspected, this is a fantastic and satisfying read. Wonderful Read!

    These books are such a joy to read! It took me a while to figure out who’d done it but I did! And no it didn’t spoil my reading pleasure at all. On the contrary, I just wanted to keep on reading to see if I’d guessed right. Althea and co. get themselves mixed in another murder this one too close for comfort for Althea. I’m not giving any of the plot away but I do recommend this book. It has a bit of everything from magick to murder and it’s written really well and flows beautifully.

    I love these books and can't wait to see what happens next with Althea Rose. Can't wait to see her embrace her powers and her relationship with Trace, and what about this new ghost Rosita. Looking forward to reading the next book. I have enjoyed reading The Mystic Cove series and have read the first book in the Isle of Destiny. Keep it coming Tricia I'm loving your books. Thank you.

    I really liked this book. I read the first one in the series. And, although it can be a stand alone, I would have enjoyed it more if I had read the three books between. There were some references to stories that had happened that I knew would have made much more sense if I had the background. But all in all I enjoyed the book very much. I really like the main characters and the storyline.

    The Althea Rose series is a great little series of books. Light, Quirky and fun with a big dash of magic, romance and mystery. Each book is a stand alone book, but I recommend reading from the start as well as reading the two novellas between books 2&3 and 3&4. I started reading Tricia O’Malley last year with her Mystic Cove Series and Isle of Destiny series . I just love her books!

    Althea I adore the main character and her special somones relationship! So happy that it's who Althea ended up with. The murder mystery was another good one. I like that it's always someone in the book, so you can guess who the bad guy is. It's not just some random person that wasn't previously mentioned. Great book.

    Another amazing story! I'm having so much fun reading this series! Althea feels so real to me. She's quirky, a bit clumsy and lazy, but also a small business owner with great friends and family. Add in interesting storylines and exceptional storytelling for a series you'll want to binge through! Another amazing story! I'm having so much fun reading this series! Althea feels so real to me.

    Intriguing More mystical with the mystery. And, screw Cash and the horse he rode in on. Trace is the best fit, and I really like him. But, I had hope Cash would learn the importance of being true to yourself. Well, apparently not. Trace, on the other hand, respects Althea and her friends.

    Exciting as always The 5th book was so worth reading. It is great to have the characters come back every time. You really get the chance to know them . Althea and Trace are perfect for each other. Can't wait for the next book. Exciting as always The 5th book was so worth reading. It is great to have the characters come back every time.

    Not worth buying. Loved her other books particularly the two Irish series. I hated it and went read another Tequila series book. Her two Irish series were very good and recomend them highly.

    Plan on reading front to back nonstop Luna, Althea and Ms. Elva are caught up in trouble again. Is it wrong of me to be jealous of these 3 women? Even though they are fictional? Tricia O'Malley knocks it out of the ballpark again. I'm on tethering books till the next book. Plan on reading front to back nonstop Luna, Althea and Ms. Elva are caught up in trouble again.

    These books have all been fun reads which take me away from the gloom and doom of the world today. The magick is mostly just the stuff of daydreams of sticking it to the 'man'. Take a break and enjoy. These books have all been fun reads which take me away from the gloom and doom of the world today.
