Tangled Up in Trouble by Olivia Hardin - Review

Tangled Up in Trouble by Olivia Hardin

Lynlee Lincoln isn’t just a witch, she’s also a Neutralizer. Her job is a juggling act to keep magical and undead clients out of trouble. But getting back together with her old flame throws one more ball into the mix and romance with a guy who has two kids can get complicated. When her old mentor asks her to investigate the goings-on of a dark witch, things turn messy. The witch is stalking supernatural creatures to collect ingredients for a potion that Lynlee can’t seem to figure out. To keep those closest to her from becoming the next victims, she may have to confront the demons within herself.  

My Thoughts:Tangled Up in Trouble is a fun and exciting paranormal thriller. I love the idea of a sort of policed system for the paranormal. Not quite punishment, since there wasn’t much of that going on, but a way to keep it a secret from the humans. I’ve read a few other books that always have some secret group of leaders who keep things under wraps. I love that we get to see a group like that in this book, but much more in depth.

Lynlee Lincoln is a Neutralizer, which means if some magical and undead creature (MAUC) gets into trouble she orbs in and saves the situation. Lynlee is a witch, who is still a little unsure of her powers. I like that instead of being all big and bad constantly; Lynlee has some insecurity about herself and her relationship with Beck. Beck is surprisingly strong and seems to be taking the whole magic thing (as a non-magical human) pretty well this time. In the first book, Trolling for Trouble, we learn about his issues with magic, so I am glad has gotten over it. I love Rhiannon. She is Lynlee’s friend and a werevamp. Her character entertained me, she is a lot of fun and pretty fierce when someone she cares about is in danger. I enjoyed the different explanations for the different MAUCs throughout the story.

Tangled Up in Trouble is fast paced and full of action. The hunt for the dark witch introduces readers to a lot of interesting characters and danger. I can’t wait to see how Lynlee and Beck’s relationship is holding up in the next book, and what trouble Lynlee will find herself dealing with. If you enjoy a fun and suspenseful paranormal book, Tangled Up in Trouble would be perfect for you.

The first book Trolling for Trouble is forever FREE. Get caught up on the series.

About the Author

When Olivia Hardin began having strange movie-like dreams in her teens, she had no choice but to begin putting them to paper. Before long the writing bug had her and she knew she wanted to be a published author. Several rejections plus a little bit of life later, and she was temporarily “cured” of the urge to write. That is until she met a group of talented and fabulous writers who gave her the direction and encouragement she needed to get lost in the words again. Olivia’s attended three different universities over the years and toyed with majors in Computer Technology, English, History and Geology. Thenl one day she heard the term road scholar and she knew that was what she wanted to be. Now she “studies” anything and everything just for the joy of learning. She's also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and she’s sometimes accused of being artistic.
A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband, Danny and their puppy, Bonnie. Connect with Olivia and Get information about releases, contests, news and more here:
