    Perfect Light Read

    If you enjoy a little fantasy in your stories, this is the book for you!
    Liv, who has lived in Nodaway Falls all her life, suddenly discovers she is magic. And worse, someone wants to steal that magic, even if it kills Liv. This is a sweet, fast, funny read- I completely enjoyed it!

    Enjoyed this book from a new author to me.

    Olivia is working at the Crazy Cousin Betty Waffle House, mopping the floor over the supposedly magic blue sparkly tile, when a woman comes in who will change Olivia’s life. Olivia is working with her unrequited love, Tobias, when Davina comes in to get waffles. Tobias leaves and Olivia ends up unconscious on the diner floor with Davina nowhere in sight. Shortly thereafter, Liv starts manifesting magical powers-she can make inanimate objects come alive as funky creatures (like the coffee mug Gibson). Davina lets her know that her family was broken up because of the magic and that she might have a sister and her father alive somewhere. Davina also warns her about Cain, a mysterious man who has appeared in town.
    Olivia has four best friends, Millie, Peach, and Stacey and their lives all become part of the mystery surrounding Olivia’s magic. Millie turns into a psycho sex pot and breaks up Peach’s engagement. It soon becomes clear that someone is turning town residents into their magical slaves or conduits. Olivia needs to figure out who is the good guy and who is the bad. Tobias turns out to have a finger in the magical pie as well. Things get very dark before the final resolution.
    I enjoyed this book, the author did a great job of portraying a person who is struggling with what to do with her life and who gets a major life changer thrown into the mix. Although Olivia sometimes seems a bit clueless, that would be pretty much how most people would be in the same situation. The magic has messed her up and yet grounded her on some level. The worst thing to happen to her ultimately brings her heart’s desire to her.
    I understand this author writes under another name. I am interested to read other books she has done.

    A Fun, Charming Read.

    A Fun, Charming Read. I picked this up on a whim for a fun, rainy day, read, and found myself rather charmed by it. Olivia's yearning for Tobias, surprisingly, feels quite real; the eventual threats of dark magic and Liv's discovery of her powers also read as rather scary and foreboding. The climax and final 'battle' have some unexpectedly dark turns, but my only 'dislike' is that LIv's friends Peach and Millie--tend to annoying and rather clichéd; Stacey, however, is rather a hoot. I'm looking forward to the next novel.

    Not what I expected - even better.

    I expected something like a beach read - simple plot, simple characters, and simply fun. This book was much better than that. The plot was different, and intriguing, watching the main character develop her powers was fun. The who-dun-it part of the story was well told, and well thought out.
    I would recommend this story to anyone who likes mysteries, and wants a different kind of twist on a well done tale.
