A wonderful paranormal fantasy read that is perfect for October and Halloween. I read this novel as part of the Fraterfest Readathon and had quite some reading pleasure. If you are looking for a light and easy to read a novel with some sexy romance and a very funny main figure – then this is your book!

Leigh Epstein is a grief-stricken and lonely elementary school teacher that is devastated by the brutal and unexpected death of her true love at the hands of a careless writer. She overcomes her grief by taking matters into her own hands and takes up a little romance writing to resurrect her vampire-werewolf book-boyfriend. Leigh gets more than she bargained for when she discovers that every steamy erotic scene she creates is magically reenacted by her family, friends, and coworkers. In her hilarious first diary, Leigh unwittingly sets her parents up for a weekend dinner party that they will never forget. She has two weeks to find out what her newfound magic is capable of. Can she prevent a wild erotic encounter that could devastate her sweet parent’s marriage? What and who else will get caught up in her magic spells?
Leigh is shocked. How can the author let her beloved romance figure die? She sobs for hours and when she tells the real reason for her tears her best friend, it is clear that she has to write her own novel to get some sort of revenge. And with that, the fun begins. Because Leigh uses for her literal work a desk she got for free. And that desk is magical. Literally magical. 

Accidental Leigh is written in a very funny way. There are many hilarious scenes and dialogues that make you laugh. The writing style is easy to read, sometimes a bit cheesy, and with lots of flowery paraphrases to describe certain things. Like a man´s crown jewels. I love the author´s writing style very much. It was exactly what I had needed, and the perfect Halloween read. 

Okay, don´t expect the figures to be profound. The ladies here are anything but. They want fun, a great man who knows everything they want before they speak it out loud and if that is done with the help of a witch, so be it. I had a broad smile all over my face while reading this story and it was clear that the author had wanted some funny figures and created nothing but that. 

Leigh is a young woman who is shocked when one of her beloved romance figures was killed by the author at an early stage in the novel. As some sort of revenge, she decides to write her own novel where her beloved character is living on. 

This was fun. If you are looking for some sexy romance with a Halloween touch – this is your book. I read it within hours, and it made me laugh.

Happy reading
