My review for:  Dakota Cassidy - What Not to Were
Date completed: 06.26.15

This is a stand-alone novella (or the beginning of something new?).

Down-right hilarious – a magical who-dun-it!  After months of not rushing into anything, the night to take their relationship is supposed to be magical.  Unfortunately, the magic took a wrong turn with frightening and riotous results.  I held my breath.  I cried out (no, no, no, no!!)  I cried, and I laughed – often!  At one time I had a 5’ long green iguana.  Mine liked to sit on my shoulder.  Calla’s talks!  

(Pout, pout) – Okay, I’m done pouting.  Twyla Faye, that’s the iguana, is a snarky diva, but written in such a way that instead of hating her for all of that I couldn’t help but love her, too.

This was the first book I have read from Dakota Cassidy.  I hope it’s not the last!  I kind of want to return to this (re-imagined) Paris, TX.  I wish I had the rest of the stories from this anthology.... how fast can you say "one-click?"
