    Like all of the Freaky Friday books, this story was hysterical! I never realized that Gnomes came in different sizes and different.clothing. Bathing suits, Hawaiian shirts, firefighter, you name it and there is a Gnome for that. My neighbor has a few Gnomes in her yard and after reading this book, I am always making sure that they are still there and in the same direction. LOL I always thought that Gnomes were a bit creepy and this book proved to me that they are not only creepy but funny as H-E Like all of the Freaky Friday books, this story was hysterical!

I volunteered an honest review in exchange for an ARC copy of this book!

    Absolutely hilarious, because I have a friend who swears, swears, Gnomes move at night. She shivers if you mention Gnomes and hates them. I'm not so sure her hubby wasn't playing a joke. But you can be sure that Missy doesn't take this as a joke after people start having adverse reactions to Gnome visitations. Then there are the hunters being hunted. Of course one turns out to be magic related and having a hunter discover the source is even more disturbing.

Then there are the hunters being hunted. Of course one turns out to be magic related and having a hunter discover the source is even more disturbing. Answers to old questions are starting to be filled in. Combined with the ambushed hunters, neither is what you would have ever guessed. Missy is growing in talent and still a super sleuth.

    I think this one was the best in the series so far! The idea of garden gnomes having a grudge against humans is funny (if a bit scary if you dwell on it too long). When Missy's garden gnome starts infecting the neighbor's garden gnomes and then the entire town's, life gets dangerous for Missy. First, her neighbor on one side is murdered, then others in town are murdered and nobody knows but Missy and Matt who or what is doing it. Along the way, we meet a Troll who gets enthralled by a witch (Miss I think this one was the best in the series so far!

And the creative ways the gnomes kill humans is intriguing and surprising.

    This book is a fun and exciting paranormal excursion! Just looking at the book’s cover had me unsure of whether I wanted to look any further into the pages! That is one scary dude! The book read well, lots of laughs to ease that tension as the story line moves the reader through the scary feel of the place. This one can be read on its own, but since it was so enjoyable, I can easily recommend going back for the others if you missed them.

    Gnome home? Tacky lawn decorations roaming the streets and causing murder? Yes that's not all! Women's Werewolf club members shot by silver bullet in forest getaways. Nurse Mindy and friend Matt, a newspaper man, try to find the reason for black magic aches and discover Mindy's birth mother in the bottom of a big pot of trouble. Once again, Freaky Florida nails another target on the wall of reality. Fast paced, great characters from the series and a mixture of mirth and mayhem as always! Gnome home?

    A warning spell on a garden gnome has gone awry. The spell seems to be infecting all the gnomes in town and owners are dying. In addition, someone is murdering werewolves. And what is Detective Affird up to? Missy and Matt have their hands full again. And we learn some more about Missy's family. Every book introduces us to new types of supernaturals living in Florida. What a fun story. I highly recommend it. A warning spell on a garden gnome has gone awry. The spell seems to be infecting all the gnomes in town and owners are dying.

    5 stars Loved it! Reviewed in the United States on August 4, 2020 Missy and her friends/patients are at it again! This time around they’re dealing with garden gnomes (I’ve always thought them scary), werewolf ladies, and her mother!?! The story is well written, that characters are delightfully eccentric and the fun never seems to end! I received an ARC and this is my honest opinion.

    I couldn't wait to read this book because I used to play a Gnome character in a MMORPG game, so naturally I feel gravitated towards anything with gnomes. These gnomes were a little different, but it was still fun to read about gnomes. I love this series because all the characters are fun to read and I just love all aspects of the supernatural, so it makes it even more enjoyable to read.

    What a fun book! I tried describing the book to my daughter; “demon possessed garden gnomes, geriatric werewolves and vampires, and a witch.” Now my daughter is about as nerdy and quirky as you can get, but even she was reduced to “What!!!!” What a fun story. Can’t wait to read more.

    Fun Freewheeling Adventure Ward Parker has done it yet again- this is an unusual tale with humor and pathos and is a delightful addition to the whole series! This is great for a quick, refreshing read. I’m very glad to have found an Author that can make me laugh out loud and write fantasy that is different from anything I’ve read over the last 30 years, wonderful!

    good story, lots of plots within plots that are interconnected and parallel. I would recomend that you read the first books to understand the characters as they develope their relationships. I love the tongue in cheek twist on the name of this story, The Freaky Florida books #4 is a hit!! I recomend reading; 1-4 you will get hooked!

    Very enjoyable This book (series) is worth the read. The books aren't loaded down with wordy descriptions of everything going on. But then most people have an imagination that fills in the blanks. Keep up the good writing! Very enjoyable This book (series) is worth the read.

    Freaky is as Freaky Does Who knew gnomes could be so upset about their treatment. And how could sweet grandmother types be so... Deadly? Can't wait for next book in the series.

    What do you do when the gnomes come after you? Neighbors are being killed by gnomes and it all starts with your gnome. Also someone is killing female werewolves. Was it a law enforcement officer, militia or a vengeful person? This is a great read. The premise is good. I liked the storyline. It's a quick moving and fast paced action packed read. You are surprised at the twists and turns with unpredictable revelations. I think if you want a laugh this will give you one.
