A great read! I didn't put this book down. It has the mysteries of gypsy life along with magic and spells. I loved it! It shows that destiny can sometimes play games with your heart. Really good read, well-written.
Such a different type of book about magic, love, sadness and joy. It is almost 900 nook pages and I didn't get anything done today, because I couldn't put this down, and finished it. You think you have it figured out, but you don't. I have read over 10 of her books, and this is a favorite. Not only great main character's, but wonderfully written secondary ones too. The ending will surprise you, in a good way! (Ljb)
This was a well-written, entertaining book. Lilith is a Gypsy in Italy in 1420 whose soul mate is unjustly killed. As he dies he swears he will return to her. She seeks out an elixir of immortality so she will be there when he is reborn. In Toronto in 1999, Lilith is a fortune teller. When Mitch moves in next door she is overjoyed to see that he is the image of her lost love. Mitch is a practical man who does not believe in magic. It was so fun to read about their journey!

A FLUFFY LITTLE ROMANCE! Lilith is an all purpose immortal witch who communicates with the birds and the butterflies and makes a living as a fortune teller. With Lilith around there are spells and potions for everyone, even the dog and cat. Lilith has waited years for her one true love only to fall for the new neighbor next door, who at first she thinks is her one true love. The guy next door-Mitch-a cynic beyond the norm can't keep his eyes or his hands off Lilith. He doesn't believe she is a witch and sets out to prove it only to fall under her "magic " spell. The question that drives Mitch thru the first half of the book-specifically how can someone live for six hundred years and leave no trace or record-is never answered. However that is over shadowed by the cuteness of Mitch's kids and the personality of his dog and her cat, along with an interesting cast of supporting characters. The supposed one true love shows up, a bit over done in the obnoxious category but he feels right given his history. I like the resolution! But I am not telling it would spoil the surprise ending. Great weekend read. Take it to the beach. Copy gifted by publisher in exchange for an honest review.
