Girl vs Ghost (Misdirected Magic Trilogy, #1)

Isabel Lindley doesn’t believe in magic, but her best friend is obsessed with witchcraft. Strictly as a favor, Isabel agrees to help with a spell and is shocked when the ghost of a gorgeous teenage boy splat-lands in her bedroom. Her friend is thrilled—even though only Isabel can see or hear the ghost—but Isabel is horrified. She’s the most ordinary sixteen-year-old girl on the planet. What is she supposed to do with a ghost who doesn’t know his own name, how he died, or why the heck he’s tied to Isabel with a psychic chain? Her only hope to take back her life is to help him solve the mystery of his demise so he can go to the Light. Or wherever. She’s not particular, as long as the ghost is gone.

Witch vs Wizard (Misdirected Magic - Book 2)

by Kate McMurry and Marie August

Parker Hamilton has serious family problems, and only magic can solve them. He's confident he can fix them himself--after all, he's a wizard with talent, training, and a kickass spell book he inherited from his grandmother. So when witch wannabe, Tripp Macauley, tries her best to horn in on his plan, he flatly refuses, until his conservative mother confiscates his spell book and burns it. As far as Parker is concerned, this is an act of war, but without the spell book, it's a war he can't win--unless he gives in and accepts Tripp's help.

Spells vs Spirits (Misdirected Magic - Book 3)

by Kate McMurry and Marie August

Tripp Macauley and Parker Hamilton have achieved the impossible--they've brought his witch grandmother back from five years in a magically induced catatonic state. His grandmother is grateful and proud, but of Tripp alone, not her formerly beloved grandson Parker. But his grandmother's inexplicable coldness toward him is the least of Parker's worries. In spite of his mother's protests that she hates witchcraft on moral grounds, it soon becomes apparent she is using magic to try and get rid of his grandmother...permanently.
