Earth Witches Aren't Easy (Chance Monroe) by Heather Long

Urban Fantasy.  Chance Monroe is a hedge witch.  Eight years ago Chance was a college who was attacked and left for dead by serial killer Randall Oakes.  She was “the one who lived”.  Then the killer was killed in a plane crash and Chance was able to move on with her life.  Only now he is back from the dead and killing again.  The FBI want her help and to place her in protective custody.  Chance isn't thrilled by either request.  A compromise is made by having “ex-boyfriend” FBI agent Jack Harker stay with and protect her.  Jack and Chance will have to use their own special talents to track down Randall Oakes before he gets Chance.

I was introduced to Heather Long by her Always a Marine series.  Always a Marine is adult and erotic.  The Chance Monroe Adventures are not.  So if you are expecting sexy former Marines you will be disappointed.  But if you are looking for a different UF mystery, Earth Witches Aren't Easy is a fun change of pace.  Told from the first person we get to know what Chance is seeing, feeling and doing.  I sometimes have a problem with this type of storytelling but Ms. Long makes it work.  The story starts with Chance banishing imps and ends with a serial killer. I heartily recommend this and look forward to further adventures with Chance Monroe.

I'd like to thank Heather Long and Author Accomplice for the chance to read and review.

I also had a chance to read Ms. Long's free Christmas story: 
Merry Christmas Marine, Semper Fi, & Good Night (Always a Marine) by Heather Long

A short, sweet holiday story starring the former Marines and their partners at a Christmas party.  They are told the tale of a Marine and his bride after the events of the Pearl Harbor attack.  It reminds us that there are those who won't be home for Christmas.
