This is a really lovely book that reminds me of old screwball comedies. The pace is fast, and the dialogue has the rhythmic, banter-like tone of people who think and speak fast. The plot gets ever more unlikely, and more fun, as it goes on. Rory is a real keeper - a handsome, small town man who runs a farm and rescues old race horses. Then is there is the cocky, and surprisingly touchy-feely, Tom who is both the face of the interfering Organization of Magic but also someone who really wants Elly to overcome her problems. And most importantly of all is Elly, a clever young woman whose insecurities seem to come naturally from her life experiences but who makes real steps to overcome them through the course of the novel. The other characters also have real life in them and promise more for future novels in this series.
The book is consistently funny, sweet and romantic. The immediacy and strength of Rory and Elly's feelings is even integrated as a significant plot element - is this true love or just magic gone wrong? There is a lovely underlying philosophy of magic, too.Read more ›
It strikes me as the kind of book that people much younger than I would enjoy, the two main female leads having a teenage like mentality.
It is fast moving and at times I'm almost breathless at it's pace, but that still doesn't make it a good read. I have no criticism of the author's skill, because clearly she can write, but I just don't like the content, the story is weak and I'm afraid a bit silly.
I'm not a quitter with books and am forcing myself to see it out, but judging from some other reviews,it might be a waste of time.
The title suggests a series but sorry, I won't be reading any more.
Likable characters, well thought out story, good pacing and a dash of magic and you have a winning story.

High expectations after reading reviews, but just didn't get me, but we all like different styles worth reading for freebiePublished on 29 July 2013 by dawn louise
Sweet, bit syrupy here and there, and as lightweight as the heroine's home-made cakes. Not a tale that provokes thought.Published on 1 July 2013 by susi r
I love novels like this, all magic and mystery. The characters I loved, nothing like a bit of magic thrown in a book, couldn't put this book down.Published on 17 Jun. 2013 by Mrs. J. L. Sullivan
