She’s determined to move her wine business to the next level, and she needs twenty-four hours of peace and quiet to do it. There’s only one thing standing in her way. Well, make that a whole family of obstacles … and one ticked-off FBI agent. When cousins Bay, Clove and Thistle vow to stop their great-aunt’s wine endeavor in its tracks, Aunt Tillie is forced to come up with a unique solution. In order to keep her great-nieces out of her hair, she curses them into a book of fairy tales. Of course, because it’s Aunt Tillie, these aren’t normal fairy tales. They’re the fairy tales she created – with a little inspiration from the classics. Now Bay, Clove and Thistle have to work their way through a labyrinth of stories they haven’t heard since they were kids – and they have to take Landon, Marcus and Sam along for the ride. Will Bay get eaten by bears? Will Thistle kiss a frog? Will Sam climb Clove’s hair to rescue her from a tower? And, better yet, will Landon turn himself into a prince and slip a glass slipper on Bay’s foot? Each task becomes harder as the story progresses, and as the tales darken, things start to become dangerous. Can the Winchester witches survive Aunt Tillie’s twisted mind? Or will they be lost in a book forever?

    2.5 stars The premise was creative, being thrown into a book of fairy tales by a spiteful great aunt. But, I thought the character development was shallow and the dialogue was repetitive, same conversations over and over. Picked this up as a free book on Amazon, not bad for a silly light read.

    Another great addition to this world. I was expecting it to be from Aunt Tillies POV but realized early on it wasn't. I've liked everything by this author (the only released books I haven't gotten to yet are the Avery Shaw books), but I think this series has been my favorite. I like all the characters, but Aunt Tillie has become my favorite, with Thistle close behind (with a red blanket at the ready). I can't wait for more!

    Very Interesting!! The author states that her "particular brand of humor isn't for everyone." Well, it definitely is for me! I love & enjoy all of her Wicked Witches books. I will say that this one was the most unusual of all of them. If you've read the other books in this series & enjoyed them, then read this one! Now excuse me while I satisfy my craving for bacon.......... Very Interesting!! The author states that her "particular brand of humor isn't for everyone." Well, it definitely is for me!

    I really enjoyed this book - it was fun and quite inventive, with the usual fantastic snarkiness in dialogue. I'm quite a fan of snark. But also, Aunt Tillie's "take" on the classic fairy tales never ceased to make me giggle. Great job! I'll probably read this one again sometime.

    Great Short Story! While the book stands quite ably on its own merits, the add much more depth when read during or after the series!

    Awesome twist on your everyday fairy tales While I love reading, and I stick to fantasy/sci-fi mainly, I never considered myself a fairy tale kind of girl, but know all of the classics having read them and watching the movie renditions. After reading Witchy Tales, I have a new outlook on the classics, especially the ones with princesses. Never really cared for them, once I hit my teens, I figured the girls to be wussies who were too lazy to fend for themselves...

Sure its nice to think everyone has a Prince Charming out there, but then again, your soulmate doesn't need a Prince or Princess. Went off topic, this book is just as awesome as all of the others!! Cannot wait to dive into the next Winchester adventure!!

    There are at least two series of Midwest Witches books by Amanda Lee. One is what I would call the 'regular' series and the second is the fantasy series which has quotes from various characters interspersed with the regular chapters. This is the first book you should read before you read any of the others since there are references to the events in this book in several of the others.

They end up in a fairy tale book. You've got the Three Bears, Peter Pan, Jack and the Beanstalk and various other tales. They have to solve the tales and survive and hope they somehow get back in time to stop Aunt Tillie. A really cute starting book.

    While Amanda M. Lee does a great job at keeping you on the edge of your seat with all of her stories, I must say that after reading the first Wicked Witches of the Midwest Fantasy, as of right now I prefer the Mysteries. I love the characters of the Wicked Witches of the Midwest, so I will continue to read the Fantasies and all the other Wicked Witches of the Midwest books. Hopefully I will enjoy the subsequent Fantasies more than the first one. That said, what I appreciated the most about this While Amanda M.

That said, what I appreciated the most about this book is that it fills in some of the gaps in the Mystery books as Amanda often references events from the Fantasies (and Shorts) in the Mystery books.

    Not the best... I trudged through this all the way to the end because I am a completist when it comes to books. Unfortunately I did not enjoy the majority of this. The concept of everyone learning the lessons from the different fairy tales was interesting but the fact that she took everyone's most annoying traits and amplified them resulted in a very trying read that I almost did not make it through. I love the setting and the concept of these books but the characters really need to experience so Not the best...

    There’s nothing wrong with this book, I just hated it Spoiler alert! There’s nothing wrong with this author or this book. I just hated this one. I hated it top to bottom. And what really really get me is that Aunt Tillie didn’t get her cummupence. So, to recap: I hated the story, I hated what happened to the characters, I hated that the villain is let off the hook. All the hate.

    This was a never-ending tale of whiny characters. Bitch, bitch, bitch. The only saving grace, I like Aunt Tillie’s twisted changes. Why would the princesses wait to be rescued by the prince or whoever? Not that I’m feministic about it, but some of the situations could’ve been dealt with without anybody else. It’s not just a moral for little girls, but for anyone who just sits there waiting to be helped boy or girl, man or woman.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. First of all, I love all of Amanda’s books. This one was awesome and hilarious but it did get a bit repetitive. I loved the idea but when it got to the beanstalk turn, I was ready to be done. I’m also so tired of Aunt Tillie’s character and I don’t understand how she is so well loved. Granted she does have some good points, most of the time I just wish she’d go away.

    Aunt Tillie strikes again... I really enjoyed this book. It took away from the normal day to day lives of Bay & her family & introduced us to the wickedness that is Aunt Tilly. The lessons within are good to remember and hopefully help to broaden the lives of each character in the Wicked witches of the Midwest books... Good clean fun read with lots laughs...

    Freaking hilarious!!! I always enjoy anything written by Amanda M. Lee, but I usually prefer the main books in her storylines. That being said, this book is definitely a new favorite for me! Tons of fun and twists and turns in the story! I also think that the underlying “lesson” about women being powerful, capable and strong in their own right is spot on!!!

    Magically amazing as always! I read the entire series and was a bit upset there wasnt anymore. I was so excited to come across the fantasy series. I read the entire book in a few hours (helped me forget I was hooked up to chemo.) Cant wait to finish the rest! Amanda please continue with this series and others like it, we all love your sordid sense of humor!!

    A Winchester witches fantasy story. Aunt Tillie gets angry and sends Bay, Thistle, and Clove into a book of fairy tales to keep them from stopping her from selling he wine. Along with the cousins are their boyfriends Landon, Marcus, and Sam. It was a funny and entertaining story but on to the next story.

    Fun, sooo funny, crazy fun read. Laugh out loud, off my chair, on the floor laughing. This series is a family of totally dysfunctional witches with a wicked sense of humor, sarcastic wit and trouble tattooed on their foreheads. Wickedly fun read and my personal favorite in this series so far.

    Hilarious!! The gang get stuck in a fairy tale book by Aunt Tillie. But there's a very big difference to the tales. All of their personality traits get enhanced in the book. Will they ever get out? Read on to find out!!!

    I just love fairy tales. The Winchester family fairy tales are the best. Throughout the book, Aunt Tillie teaches lessons to her niece's that I found both profound and enlightening. I highly recommend spending a couple of hours with this one.

    One of the better ones. This is a good read. Wasn't an all nighter like some of the others, but a fine two nighter. This one shows Aunt Tillie's genius off nicely. Can't get enough of the old girl!

    Entertaining And entertaining spin and offshoot of the regular series. You never want to make great aunt Tillie mad or you just may find yourself forced into a weird world of literature.

    Fun short story! I liked how she incorporated all of the characters from previous books and I liked the character development. The fairy tales characters were as charming and funny as the main characters.

    I'm sad to see the Fantasy shorts discontinued... This first WWMW one was so clever and had lots of lessons to teach the witches and their boyfriends. Spend a day in Aunt Tillie's fairy tale realm, you won't regret it!

    Not your normal fairy tale This was so funny to read. The regular books in the series mentioned them being cursed into a book, but I never dreamed it would be like this. The great and powerful Aunt Tillie strikes again!!

    Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you... Great Aunt Tillie teaches Bay and Landon, Sam and Clove, and Thistle and Marcus an epic lesson. The might lose an entire weekend, but Great Aunt Tillie teaches everyone a lesson about who is in charge.

    Not my favorite I wanted to love it like I love the other books and short stories, but everyone was just off. The end kind of made me unhappy, not the storyline, but the characters seemed depressed. I will try the other fantasy’s and hope they are better.

    Not enough of Tillie for me. I didn’t realise how integral Aunt Tillie was to these books until now. She orchestrates the whole plot but is absent in most of it. Much prefer the stories with her presence throughout.
