From Goodreads:
High Priestess might sound like an ’80s hair band, but its Mona McGregor’s life. She runs the Midnight Magic shop in Goodnight, Virginia, and leads a large coven. She’s also raising two nieces and hasn’t been with a man for fifteen years…until a handsome doctor takes an interest in her. But Mona’s life really heats up when Adam Blue, a sexy werewolf, arrives at her door. Adam informs her that someone wants her dead and he is there to protect her. Hell’s bells! When a demon begins stalking her, Mona has to suspect her coven members, and even her family.

With two handsome men and a determined demon after her, Mona teams up with Adam to find out who really wants her dead . . . and who really wants her.

So this was surprisingly good. It reminded me of the Sookie Stackhouse books, but not in a copycat way. It had the same feel, but was completely different. Witches took the lead in this book, and vampires were hardly mentioned. I absolutely LOVED how the "To Do" lists were incorporated into the story, because I use lists like that all the time, and they were hilarious. The mystery added a nice element, also. The main character was flawed, which made her interesting, and I loved how much she cared about her nieces. I hope Ms. Harlow writes another book about Mona!

Note: There were a lot of F-Bombs and the romance scenes were a little icky, in my opinion. A little too much information. Therefore, I don't recommend this one for teens.
