Review: Entangled by Nikki Jefford

Series: Spellbound Trilogy (Book 1)
Electronic: 281 pages
Genre: Paranormal

Two months after dying, seventeen-year-old witch Graylee Perez wakes up in her twin sister Charlene's body. 
Until Gray finds a way back inside her own body, she's stuck being Charlene every twenty-four hours. Her sister has left precise instructions on how Gray should dress and behave. Looking like a prep isn't half as bad as hanging out with Charlene's snotty friends and gropey boyfriend. 

The "normals" of McKinley High might be quick to write her behavior off as post-traumatic stress, but warlock Raj McKenna is the only person who suspects Gray has returned from the dead. 

Now Gray has to solve the mystery of her death and resurrection and disentangle herself from Charlene's body before she disappears for good.

First off look at that cover. Gorgeous! 

I love this book. It is equal parts chilling, funny, and romantic. One minute you're laughing at the not-so-pleasant surprises the sisters leave each other and the next you're on the edge of your seat with suspense. At first I thought this novel would be full of trite teen drama (and there is a lot of it), but I was proved wrong. 

Raj is by far my favorite character. He is the determined suitor friend who wants to help Gray regain her body. He is definitely the typical charming bad-boy. 

Gray was annoyingly passive-aggressive at first, but she started to grow on me as she made more and more trial thrust at her. She makes some big decisions that takes a great deal of responsibility. 

Charlene is a brat. Make that a psycho brat. 

I enjoyed Jefford's magic lore. These aren't your typical witches and warlocks. I found myself surprised at every turn. There were so many twists that worked to create a seamless story that I felt thoroughly satisfied by the end. Entangled is a fast read--I read it in one sitting. I highly recommend it.
