A LITTLE LIGHT MAGIC
Are things happening by coincidence, or is it magic? That's the question
Nash asks in this light, fun and
interesting story. But although the
heroine is wounded, she still comes across as a bit self-centered, with
very little business sense. And the
hero starts out as a bit of a jerk, but
by the end of the story has learned
to loosen up.
When Tori Morgan inherits her great-aunt's rundown house on the Jersey shore, she plans on making it into a shop selling tarot cards, crystals, runes, etc. To get the place up to code, she calls in contractor Nick Santangelo. Tori is convinced the reason Nick decides to help her is that she used candle magic given her by a Cajun witch.
For his part, Nick is busy dealing with his 17-year-old daughter, who is in love; a nonna that shoplifts; a mother who is acting strange; and a wannabe actor brother who is an undependable employee. As for Tori, she wants a baby, but she doesn't want a man. Can she help herself and Nick with a little light magic? (LEISURE, Jun., 336 pp., $7.99)
