Welcome to Everlasting, Maine, where there's no such thing as normal.As a centaur, Deputy Jake Majoy (Deputy March), is immortal and has seen and done a lot in his five hundred years. Enough to know that Everlasting feels like home. It’s been perfect for him to fade away and blend in, as the town is anything but normal—and they protect their own. So, when a newcomer ends up in their midst, at the same time magical items go missing around town, it’s his duty to step in to restore law and order. But the pull he feels to the woman is anything but part of the job. Kelsey Gibbons has (literally) followed all the signs leading to the tiny town of Everlasting, Maine. When her arrival coincides with an uptick in crime, it becomes very clear that the chaos has only just begun. And when a hunky man in uniform shows up on the scene, it’s all she can do to focus on finding answers.Can she and Jake beat the clock and the evil that has come back to town?

So when she is in town and Deputy Jake sees her thru a window and feels the fire burning thru him …and its all for her. Well you know how this is gonna go.This is a fantastic installment that has great characters, fabulous plot, villains who needed to be taken care of and good guys who were oh so much more and awesome steaminess between Kelsey and Jake. I loved the intrigue, suspense, steaminess and passion. I enjoyed the secondary characters and previous characters who show up. I cant wait to see what comes next in this series.My Rating: 4.5 stars ***** “I received an advanced copy of this book from the author at no cost to me."

I absolutely loved this terrific paranormal cozy mystery. I was hooked from beginning to end.What can I say? I laughed and I cried, really didn't want to put it down and spent all day and most of the night reading it, (chores? what chores? they'll still be there tomorrow, and who needs sleep anyway?). 'Total Eclipse of the Hunt' by Mandy Roth, one of my all-time favourite authors, is the fifth and latest book in the multi-author Happily Everlasting series of stand alone Paranormal Cozy Mysteries with clean romance. If you're not familiar with Cozy Mysteries, and this is your introduction to the wonderful world of multi-genre, clean 'who-dun-it's' for the mystery buff with an open mind and a sense of humour, you really couldn't find a better book to start with. Suitable for all ages, it's filled with terrific characters, most of which have appeared in the previous books in the series, is laugh out loud funny and comes complete with a heart-warming, gentle romance and a happily ever after which left me with a smile on my face and a desperate need to read more in this terrific series.Kesley Gibbons is all alone in the world, she has no family, no friends, no-one who'd even notice is she disappeared so it was something of a surprise when she got a present on her 25th birthday. She'd never had one before, and this one was really something else. It came with a one-way bus ticket to the town of Everlasting, Maine, a place she'd never heard of and really wasn't interested in seeing, until her life in Boston disintegrated in less than a week and she had nowhere else to go. It looked quaint and friendly so she found a place to stay, packed what little she had and got on the bus....Jake Majoy, better known as Deputy March thanks to Sheriff Bull's calendar, five hundred year old were-centaur and former big city Detective was having a frustrating day which was about to get a whole lot worse. Investigating a theft from Hunted Treasures he sees a woman who has an instant impact on both his human and were sides. He really didn't understand why he was turning into a born again clumsy teenager with a tongue tied in knots. Until Wilbur Messing told him, but that couldn't be right. His senses told him Kelsey was human, and he'd given up on ever finding his mate a century ago, about the same time he didn't do what was ordered and became an outcast from his clan. And then...Nope, not giving spoilers. This terrific book that had me hooked from beginning to end, I cried for Kesley and the life she's had, but she's getting by. I loved the bumbling version of a dumb-struck Jake and was glad for both of them, became gravely suspicious of knitting, which I've done all my life and never had that effect on anyone, hated the evil witches, laughed at Petey, Hugh, Carl, Mrs Mays, others and I absolutely loved this book. The town of Everlasting, carefully created by four exceptional award winning authors, is a wonderful, wacky and magical place filled with equally wonderful, wacky and magical characters. All the books in the series can be read as stand alones, and in any order, but I think, if you want to read all of them, you'd get more out of each book if you read them in order and watch the town and the characters grow and interact. I've loved them all, but this is the best so far and I really can't wait to read the next one. I'd give it a hundred stars if I could, it's on my list of books to rescue if the house was burning down and I've put it in the re-read pile where I'm pretty sure it will stay no matter how many times I read it. It really is that good! I just have one question - Who or what is Barney Fife?

    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Total Eclipse of The Hunt is Mandy Roth’s second novel in the multi-authored, Happily Everlasting series. The series takes place in the town of Everlasting, Maine. Kelsey Gibbons is a loner who lives a quiet life. As an orphan bounced around from foster home to foster home Kelsey is used to being alone and depending only on herself. But when a mysterious package shows up on her doorstep on her 25th birthday, her world is shaken up I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Kelsey Gibbons is a loner who lives a quiet life. As an orphan bounced around from foster home to foster home Kelsey is used to being alone and depending only on herself. But when a mysterious package shows up on her doorstep on her 25th birthday, her world is shaken up and she ends up on a wild adventure, in a town she has never heard of.Deputy Jake Majoy, has lived in Everlasting, Maine for some time now. He’s settled, he likes his job, his friends and enjoys his calm existence. He is not looking to change that anytime soon and he especially is not looking for a girlfriend to complicate things. But when things start coming up missing when a new girl arrives in town, he’s thrown into an investigation that threatens to upset his entire state of being. I loved, loved this book. It really gave me that warm, fuzzy feeling. It was so sweet and heart wrenching. Kelsey is sweet, kind and brave and it’s sad that she’s been all alone her whole life. Jake is a good guy, who was shunned for doing the right thing, but who still maintained his pride. It was so heartwarming to see these two find each other, come together and not be alone anymore. And of course it was fun to see the antics of the other hilarious characters from previous stories; Hugh and Penelope, Curt, Sigmund, and Petey, Jolene and Wilbur, Polly and Anna. They were all present and causing as much trouble if not more as before. I love this series, the stories are so real, feels like a place you want to visit. I certainly can’t wait to read more happily ever afters for my favorite characters, hopefully Curt or Sigmund or Wilbur or even Leopold. It will be interesting to see who’s next to find love in the town of Everlasting.

    This series keeps blowing me away. This book totally eclipsed my heart. I was so excited that one of the calendar cops got a book I never expected that in a million years! I loved all the characters and enjoyed seeing some returns of past ones. The heroines reactions to meeting Petey at the beginning were so funny. I just love Mandy Roth’s writing, she always makes me laugh.
