5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo, Teresa Medeiros! I have never read better comedy!, 30 May 1996
By A Customer
This review is from: Breath of Magic (Mass Market Paperback)
Well, where does one start? Oh, god ... I am still in pain....<...ouch!
...my ribs have greenstick fractures in fifteen fragile places ...>

Take a steaming cauldron ... and add a dollop of Pretty Woman; a
sprinkle of Indecent Proposal, a pinch of Bell, Book and Candle, a spice of
Ghost, a dash of Fanciful Things, a broomstick, a black cat, a beguiling
witch from a puritan colony in Gloucester, Massachusetts - circa 1689 -
who wears an 'enchanted' emerald amulet, a skeptical, sexy, lonely, orphaned
billionaire tycoon - circa 1996 - then swirl in concentrated essence of
Medeiros in lusty and liberal glugs and you have: A BREATH OF MAGIC!

This is not a funny story ... It is a dangerous story - that causes your
husband to crawl under the bedcovers with his hands plastered to his eardrums
in self-protection; it is a story that has him cringing on 'his' side of the
bed at 1.00 am with a pained twist to his shoulder blades that
indicates he is desperately hoping that the sounds roiling and rollicking
across him - wafting out into the night - do NOT reach the furtherest limits
of the city... In embarrassed despair because he know this has gone beyond
the bounds of such propriety - it is a story that when he asks 'What's
funny?' you try to tell him - and because you are too incoherent to do so,
he starts to laugh, then you're both choking in pain and dabbing with the
bedcovers at the waves - not trickles - but waves of oozing tears that are
streaming from both sets of eyes. It is a story that seeps champagne bubbles
of laughter from you during your sleep and catches you walking down staid
professional corridors at work burping back hysteria ...

It is a story that cries out to be made into a movie...It is a story that
EVERYONE should read.
