Midlife Magic School – Nicole Wells


Going to magic school at fifty is the least of Chloe’s worries.

A magical inheritance. A dog with an attitude. A sexy headmaster. And people trying to kill her.

When Chloe receives a bolt of magic out of the blue on her fiftieth birthday, she’s cast into an exciting but tumultuous world filled with Shifters, Elementals, Witches, and one very hot headmaster Witch. In order to return the inheritance to its rightful owner, and satisfy her curiosity at the same time, she must go to the Universal Magush Academy and learn all about the magical community while keeping one big secret—she’s human.

Or is she?

Threats to her life and those she holds dear lurk in every corner. As if that wasn’t enough, students and teachers alike hate her on sight.

As she digs deep to discover who she is, she finds herself in the middle of two battles: one for the fate of humanity and one for the peace of the magic realm. Soon these twisting fates have Chloe questioning everything she thought she knew.

But maybe, with the help of a sexy sidekick and a handful of misfit friends, she’ll teach this magic world a thing or two.

And she might just turn both worlds on their heads while she’s at it…


I liked this book and would definitely read another one in the series. I’ll give it 4 stars because is my standard for a book that kept me interested but did not blow my mind.

As the main character is in the fifties, I thought this would be a steamy book and have to admit I’m glad it is not. I don’t like when a book becomes “adult” just because it has excessive sex scenes. I do feel Chloe feels a little teenager for me, but maybe people really don’t change with age 🤷‍♀️.

I noticed my biggest problem was that, for some reason, I thought this was a standalone, and in that case the ending was extremely disappointing, but now I remember it’s supposed to be a series and everything make sense now. Felt a little cut and I missed some more action, but it’s a good ending for book 1.

I still feel there was a little lack of action, though, and the bad guy felt a little “I’m evil because I just am” for me.

My favourite character was without doubt Clarissa. The moment she entered the picture she took all my attention even while I was worried if she was good or bad.

I also enjoyed s-starting-name-dog-that-turned-out-to-be-agnes dog, she was a fun addition, even though she was super annoying 😂.

My least favourite character (ignoring the bad guy, Naafi) and I can’t believe I’m writing this, was Lex. He’s an extremely caring guy and is amazing at governing the witches and even the other races, but while the story advanced, I felt he didn’t surprise me anymore. Like, he became a support, but not much more. I guess I expected more from him, and maybe he ended up feeling a little unrealistic.

I will add a warning that this book has a lot of clichés. I love them when they are well used, but I’m conscious a lot of people hates them.

Bye bye 💕
