Review: Reluctantly Charmed by Ellie O’Neill

Ireland has got to be the absolute perfect setting for this book! I can’t think of a better location for a book about fairies and magic, not to mention I literally want to runaway to Ireland now and live there forever!

Kate McDaid has made a New Year’s resolution….she plans on revitalizing her career and love life. Kate’s life is pretty normal….she lives in Dublin and works as a copywriter at an advertising agency and rides her bike to work…..all pretty normal, until one day her life is about to change in a big way!

On her 26th birthday, she is summonsed to a lawyers office where a solicitor informs her that she is the recipient of an inheritance, left to her by a relative who died 130 years ago. All she has to do is post some letters once a week for seven weeks.

No problem right? Wrong. Kate is dying to know what these letters say….so she agrees to the pact and opens one. In  that first letter she finds that it’s a passionate plea to reconnect with the long-forgotten fairies of Irish folklore.

Review: The Dress Shop of Dreams by Menna van Praag

That would look beautiful on you. Why don’t you try it on?

How often do you hear that when you are shopping for the perfect dress?

Is it just fluff that the sales clerk is trying to make us believe or would it truly look beautiful on us? What if that statement was more like a promise?

Etta Sparks owns a dress shop where dreams actually do come true. A place where one dress could change your life.

Etta has the ability to make your dreams come true with the perfect dress and a little stitching to give you some courage.

Her granddaughter Cora has been grieving her parents death for years and Etta would like nothing better than for Cora to see what life has to offer her. For years Cora is determined to solve the mystery behind her parents’ deaths in a fire.

Review: The Night Garden by Lisa Van Allen

In upstate New York there is a small farm that appears to be just another farm in the country. Normal. Ordinary.

However the Pennywort farm is anything but ordinary and normal….it’s magical. At the heart of the farm there is a magical garden full of imagination and color.

The locals have long said that entering the garden can gain insight to life’s most difficult issues by just walking through the gates, ironically the garden’s caretaker has never experienced any kind of revelation by entering the garden.

Olivia Pennyworth has been caring for the garden and has spent her entire life on the farm while harboring a dark secret which forces her to keep everyone at arms length…..until her childhood friend, Sam, shows up.
