Review: Second Time’s A Curse by Laura Greenwood

Mona is on the search for a cure while still conjuring kittens and side-stepping what is becoming a confusing love life for her.


We left Mona having figured out someone cursed her magic to not work. While trying to work her magic she created the cutest kittens: Rhubarb, Ginger, Felix, and Isla. She gained a suitor in new student Caspian. She gave up on her crush on her best friend’s twin brother Ryan only to find out that he might like her too. Then there is Thomas the warlock teaching assistant who is helping her on her quest to reverse the curse. Whew…Mona was busy.

Thomas may have found the answer to reverse the curse. Unfortunately it involves four people and black magic. Mona is completely against it as it is illegal and someone could get hurt. 

Ivy, our mean girl on campus, reveals a secret which throws Mona for a loop. We find out that there is more than one spell casted on Mona, one of which seems to come from someone close to her. Caspian tells Mona he is fine with her dating others, which Daphne had already thrown out the poly-relationship idea. 

Did I forget to mention that Mona created diamonds? Real diamonds…she also created some new kitties. 

Which leads to a dangerous decision which has consequences that only Mona saw coming.

I never know how much to tell in synopsis sometimes because so much happens in a book and Laura Greenwood once again packed a lot in Second Time’s A Curse! . This is the second book in the “Grimalkin Academy: Kittens” series and the betrayals and twists keep coming. This is truly a mystery and a fun one too. 

I think so far this is my favorite series of all of Greenwood’s because it allows Greenwood to show the bonding of all of the characters instead of having to rush anything due to page count. We are getting a solid foundation in Mona’s friendship with Daphne, the kitties (who I wonder might play a part later), and with the guys.

If you have not started this series, you need to.  

Rating: 4 out of 5.
