Not one of her best
on November 17, 2011
Janet Chapman is one of my favorite authors because of the quality of her writing. Unfortunately this book was not up to her usual standards.
The characters of the h/h were not nearly as developed as should be,nor could you feel the magic between them. Ian couldn't seem to have a real smile that reached his eyes, and his identity with the magic was undefined. Jessie was likeable, but that's about it, and her closest friend was irritating.
Looking at this you think I would have rated this book a 1, but being familiar with the series, just being back in Pine Creek and seeing the familiar characters pulled it up to a 3. Hopefully this was just a fluke and the next will be as good as the previous novels in the series.
