A LITTLE NIGHT MAGIC
Magic, mayhem and love are at the center of March’s latest novel. This contemporary tale, a blend of witty dialogue, quirky characters and strong storytelling, is one delightful read.
Olivia Kiskey, a waitress at a waffle house, is set to leave her hometown. She needs a change to take her away from the sameness of her life and the crush she’s had for years on Tobias Shoop. One night a strange woman visits the waffle house and claims that Olivia has magical powers. Olivia dismisses the woman as nutty until unusual things start to occur that could only be attributed to magic, and it becomes clear that Olivia is the cause of it all. Finally convinced that she is magical, Olivia is suddenly thrust into a mystical war. (ST. MARTIN’S GRIFFIN, Feb., 320 pp., $14.99)
