Witches Protection Program
Wes Rockville, a disgraced law enforcement agent, is given one last chance to prove himself and save his career when he's reassigned to a 232 year old secret government organization. The Witches Protection Program. His first assignment: uncover a billion-dollar Cosmetics company’s diabolical plan of using witchcraft for global domination, while protecting its heiress Morgan Pendragon from her aunt’s evil deeds. Reluctantly paired with veteran witch protector, Alastair Verne, Wes must learn to believe in both witches and himself. Filled with adventure, suspense and a rousing good time, Michael Phillip Cash creates a tongue-in-cheek alternate reality where witches cast spells and wreak havoc in modern day New York City.
Distinctive characters populate a familiar yet satisfying adventure set in a magical version of New York City. Blond and burly inept cop Wes Rockville is down to his last chance to prove himself when he’s transferred to the secret Witches Protection Program. Led by the wiry and humorless Alastair Verne, the unit protects the good Davina witches from the nefarious acts of the evil Willa witches. Wes and Alastair investigate Pendragon Cosmetics’ suspicious new face cream after receiving a tip from informant witch Junie “Baby Fat” Meadows. Willa witch Bernadette Pendragon, the ruthless owner of the cosmetics company, put her own DNA into the face cream so that she could control millions of women worldwide. Infiltrating the company and stopping the shipments will be difficult; Bernadette’s niece and heir, Morgan, who is sweet on Wes, may be a way in, but first they have to get past Scarlett, Bernadette’s personal assistant from hell, and her shape-shifting goons. Cash (The After House) mixes predictable elements—corporate intrigue, sexy witches, cat familiars, car chases, family secrets, and steampunk weaponry—into an enjoyable story. While little here is surprising or new, the action and humor will leave cozy magical mystery fans hoping for more adventures of Wes and Alastair. (BookLife)

This book’s tagline should be: Harry Potter meets Men in Black.

An action-packed, hilarious fast read that reads more like a movie than a book. I was addicted from start to finish and am crossing my fingers they make this into a blockbuster movie.

Wes comes from a police family and the expectations are higher for him than anyone else on the force. His father is the Police Commissioner and his siblings can do no wrong. Wes disobeys one order and his father is tempted to throw him off the force. Instead, Wes is given one last chance.

The Witches Protection Program.

Don’t believe in witches? Well, neither did Wes until he met one face-to-face.

Wes doesn’t trust his eyes and trusts his partner, Alastair Verne, even less. But he’s got to at least pretend to believe witches exist if he wants his badge back and his father’s respect.

According to Alastair, there are two groups of witches… one good (Davina) and one bad (Willa). It is the duty of the Davinas to make sure the Willas are kept in check. When a Willa threatens a Davina, they need the help of the Witches Protection Program, a secret government agency.

Something is amiss at Pendragon Cosmetics and it’s up to Alastair and Wes to stop it (and protect young Morgan Pendragon) before it’s too late.

I absolutely LOVED this book! While I was reading it, I kept thinking about how cool it would be to see this on the big screen. Complete with non-stop action, this fun story answers the question about whether cosmetics run the world. The dialogue is sarcastic and soon you’re immersed in a world not unlike our own.

Mystical comedy at its best and a must read! I warn you, though, to not drink a beverage without a lid or else you might spill it from laughing too hard.

Favorite Character: Morgan. I loved how she’s innocent, somehow, from her aunt’s black magic. She appears more like a Glinda than the Wicked Witch from Oz. I also like how sparks fly between her and Wes but it’s not overly-done. The toad part was priceless.

Favorite Quote: Wes shook his head, his foot throbbing like a sore tooth and muttered, “First I’m a chew toy and now I’m stuck with Gandolf and Yoda’s prison child as a partner. Help.”
