I thought this book was a lot of fun and quite exciting. Some parts were a little slow, but the plot and fun entertainment in other parts made up for what was lacking. It is about a shy school teacher who seeks the exciting life only to win back her fiance that left her for a glamourous singer. So, in doing so, she meets up with a magician who hires her to help with his acts. And you'll have to read the book to find out what happens after. It is a very good book, full of dangerous fun and I recommend it to anyone that believes in a little magic...or even for those that don't.
