Gripping - I loved it! xxx,
This review is from: Crystal Cove: Number 4 in series (Friday Harbor) (Paperback)
Crystal Cove is number four in the `Friday Harbor' series, however, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone, so if you haven't read the other novels in the series then don't worry because you can still grab a copy of Crystal Cove to devour!
Justine has a wonderful life, but the only thing that is missing is love. However, she soon discovers that a spell was cast on her when she was born, meaning that she can never find her soul mate - and Justine sets out to change this. Enter the mysterious Jason Black, who is hiding secrets of his own...
I loved all of the Friday Harbor books so far and this was no exception. I read the entire book in one sitting - as soon as I opened the page I was swept up in Justine's world and became very involved with her story, so much that I couldn't put it down and when I finally looked up from the book I realised that a whole afternoon had flown by!
The characters were fascinating. Justine is especially well-written as a strong character and I liked her from the beginning! I loved the relationship and the chemistry between Justine and Jason, they had me hooked to the book and I was turning the pages as quick as I could so that I could find out what happened next between them. The love story was my favourite part of the book, and I found myself re-reading scenes so that I could re-live them.
I especially love the magical/witchcraft aspect of Crystal Cove. I have always been a fan of books with magic in and Lisa Kleypas knows how to expertly weave this into a gripping story with a fulfilling plot line. This aspect of the story had me constantly intrigued and kept me guessing throughout.
Crystal Cove is enchanting, it is romantic and full of sizzling scenes too! Not only is there romance, but many thrilling scenes and some very good twists to keep you guessing. I'm very much looking forward to the next book - This is another brilliant novel from Lisa Kleypas.
