Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Despite her best attempts at denial-"I am so not a witch"-Victoria Cartwright has inherited a legacy of magic, along with the key to a mysterious wardrobe, in Blair's third Witch novel (following the bestseller My Favorite Witch). Upon her beloved grandmother's death, Vickie receives the magic key to grandmother's old wardrobe-never before opened-and a promise that it contains Vickie's destiny. To Vickie's puzzlement, her destiny turns out to be an exquisitely preserved antique carousel unicorn. Though it's oddly familiar to Vickie, the unicorn is recognized right off by Scotsman Rory MacKenzie, a handsome loner, when Vickie appears with it on a television antiques show. The unicorn happens to be the handiwork of Rory's ancestor and the key to ending his family curse. The two meet and immediately set to bickering, first over Rory's manners-Vickie quickly concludes that he's "a lack-wit shoddy-mannered Scot with more beards than brains"-then over his designs for the unicorn. Of course, they're just working their way toward confronting their mutual attraction, but sassy dialogue, rich sexual tension and plenty of laughs make this an immensely satisfying return to Blair's world of witchcraft. Fans will welcome back familiar characters in supporting roles, but newcomers will take to it just as well. (Dec.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Amazing

    While a truly great read, the author did steal the title from LWW of C.S. Lewis. Though the title is part of her story. Only problem

    Not recommended for fans of the Maddie Cutler (Vintage Magic) mystery series.

    As with the second book in this trilogy, I found out too late that this is a fantasy, not a mystery series.

    A witch in denial, a hermit, and a unicorn make one good romance

    Annette Blair successfully pairs a witch in denial with a Scottish hermit by giving the witch, Victoria Cartwright, and the Scot, Rory MacKenzie, the one thing Rory and generations of his family, have been searching for, a unique, priceless zodiac carousel unicorn carved by his ancestor. This comes about because of the love their ancestors had for each other. I loved Vickie and Rory together, the idea of the antique, a carousel unicorn, which connected their families from a century before and half a world away. This book is sexy, funny, fun, hard to put down, and it takes the story full circle. Vickie's ancestor, a witch, left the key to the wardrobe containing the unicorn to the descendent who would inherit her magic. No female Cartwright had succeeded in opening the wardrobe until Vickie. But even after she opens it, she still doubts her magic. Who wouldn't? Learning who she is; is part of her journey. Learning that maybe the future is more important than the past is part of Rory's. The banter between the two is sharp, witty and laughs out loud fun from the first, promising and delivering a delightfully witty page turner from beginning to end. Vickie and Rory grow, evolve, and fall in love, despite their best efforts to fight their attraction ... difficult to do when a spell has them dreaming about each other before they meet, their dreams escalating to the erotic after they do. This book a a light hearted fun read, that moves quickly and captures your heart.

    A wonderful whimsical romance

    In Salem, Massachusetts, Victoria Cartwright encouraged by her two recently married best friends finally opens the wardrobe that has been locked since before she was born when the family ancestor witch Lily Lockhart shut it. Allegedly, if she opens it, she will find her destiny inside. Victoria does and pulls out a beautifully carved unicorn, which makes her think of the man she dreamed she was kissing near a unicorn. In Caperglen, Scotland Rory the ¿hermit¿ Mackenzie watches TV in a pub. His family and the town have been cursed ever since his ancestor Drummond broke off his engagement with the witch Lily Lockhart. Legend has it when the unicorn returns to join the rest of the Immortal Classic zodiac carousel, prosperity will return to the town. To his shock, the woman he dreams of making love to is on Roadside Antiques showing off a unicorn that could be the missing one. Rory arrives and tells Victoria he carves wood figurines like her unicorn that he saw on TV and would like to see hers. He knows he must find a secret compartment to prove this was carved by Drummond. That night they erotically dream of one another. They discuss their dreams, which lead to them making love. However, as he falls in love, his mission is the unicorn not the witch. The paranormal elements are interwoven into this wonderful whimsical romance starring a delightful charming pair whose sexual innuendos add amusement to a fine tale. Her newly discovered stepsisters, the bewitching triplets, are a trip which just adds to the fun. Though Victoria is in too much denial over her witch powers, her weight, and love, readers will cherish this terrific romantic fantasy. Harriet Klausner

    Outstanding!

    A century ago Rory MacKenzie's Scottish ancestor let the people in his village talk him out of marrying the rumored-witch Lili Lockhart. Until then, visitors from all over the globe came to ride Drummond MacKenzie's Immortal Classic Carousel. The village thrived. But when Drummond broke his engagement to Lili, and she fled to America, Drummond broke up the set of zodiac figures on his carousel too. Heart broken, he shipped the carousel's Aquarius unicorn to Lili. Even though the mechanics of the carousel were perfect, it never worked again. The village went into decline. Legend says that only the unicorn's return will cause the carousel to work. Until then, the village will not recover. ................... Because of Drummond's actions in the past, Rory is a hermit, disliked by the locals. Rory has long dreamed of bringing the unicorn back to Scotland, restoring the carousel, and becoming the village hero. But no one knows where the unicorn is. Then Rory sees it on television. It stands in a vintage dress and curio shop in Salem, Massachusetts. Rory sets out for Salem, determined to fight for the village's treasure. ................... Lili left a key to her female descendants a century ago. Each lady has tried to open the antique wardrobe with the key, only to fail. Family legend says that only the daughter who inherited Lili's magic can open the wardrobe and complete her spell. Victoria Cartwright is shocked when the wardrobe opens to reveal the most beautiful unicorn she's ever seen. Her friends have told her for years that she is a witch. But Victoria does not believe that she one. Yes, she often finds herself muttering rhyming wishes out loud, usually without even realizing it. But that is NOT why the things happen almost instantly. It is just coincidence! Now people came from all over to view the unicorn in her shop. Other than the burden of debt from her Nana's recent death, everything is wonderful for Victoria - until Rory shows up with all his secrets. ................. ***** Here is an enchanting story that made me actually believe in magic! (At least for a little while. Hey, what can I say? The author's writing makes it seem so REAL!) Victoria and Rory are perfect for each other and emotions run high when they are together. The story holds several humorous touches as well, such as Victoria's psycho cat, Tigerstar. This A.D.H.D. feline has the stripes of a tiger, the coloring of a zebra, and a star to mark the point that the strips all come together at. ..................... Just as wild as three new characters, introduced as Victoria's half-sisters (triplets). Harmony, Destiny, and Storm embrace their magical gifts. More than anything, I would love to see these three get their very own stories told. (Author Annette Blair, that is a huge hint!) Highly recommended reading! (Especially for the Halloween season.) *****
