This novel is a delightful story, easy to read and full of love and laughter. Not to mention more than a few white knuckle moments. The characters are beautiful and enchanting, and the story is skillfully crafted to be easy to read and still keep a reader enthralled. I would be thrilled to see this novel spin off into a series of books, which would be very easy to do. I absolutely enjoyed this beautiful novel, and found myself rooting out loud for Storie and Reid, two delightful characters I am fairly certain we will meet again. This is a novel that will stay in the hearts of readers everywhere. Love, laughter, magic, romance, and treachery, this novel has it all.
Reid Malone has no idea what he is getting into when he tries to rescue a young Storie Bell from an apparent drowning attempt. After that dangerous and scorching hot encounter, both Storie and Reid leave the small town of Bloomington, Texas, far behind. Years pass, and both parties venture back to town, Storie to open her dream bookstore and coffee shop, and Reid to help his father secure a multimillion dollar moonshine deal with a distiller. Little does Reid anticipate, but his path will cross very closely with Storie, and he will have to deceive her in order to succeed at his quest. Yet her skills as a witch will make her a more than formidable opponent. Toss in a few unknown family members suddenly dropping in, and the story takes a wild turn. Can Storie and Reid figure out how to protect each other and still accomplish their goals? Will they ever accept their love for each other? Take a trip to Bloomington and watch.
Storie Bell has a little secret—she’s a witch. But magic hasn’t exactly kept her life from being a complete mess—her love life is non-existent and the town thinks she’s a total nutter. Plus there’s her neighbor Reid Malone who runs hot one minute and cold the next.
Reid Malone can’t wait to escape Bloomington, Texas. Unfortunately, he’s stuck where he is unless he helps his father hide a very illegal secret. The only key to Reid’s freedom lies with the eccentric Storie…and he’ll do whatever it takes to get the information he needs from her.
But Reid’s holding something back. Something big. And if he’s not careful, he’ll find out exactly what happens when you try to deceive a witch… (Novel - 45,000 - 69,999)
