On the island of Friday Harbor, magic is in the air―and destiny is a force too powerful to defy…

As the proprietor of a successful boutique hotel, Justine Hoffman has the life she has always wanted. But there is still something missing: Love. A spell was cast on Justine when she was born, with the result that she will never find her soul mate. But she is nothing if not determined and eventually Justine finds a way to break the enchantment―never dreaming of the dangerous complications that will follow…

Witches, covens, spells and missing souls are not what I expect picking a romance novel. While all the characters were engaging, I would like a warning before I pick something with a storyline on the outermost fringes of my favorite genre. I can appreciate that Crystal Cove is a magical, mysterious place, but it was not the story I expected, or liked. It was implausible, it was unlikely, but most of all it was shallow and not at all what I expect from Lisa Kleypas.,

Ever since she has started writing this "magic" series, Lisa's writing has deteriorated to the point that I say "what is the point?". She was an excellent writer, but this stuff she is cranking out is just awful. Now, any minute her publishers will have a bunch of positive paid reviews placed on Amazon to drown us out, but maybe, just maybe Lisa or her editor will read one of the first 15 of the Crystal Cave reviews and just maybe there still is magic in this world, and Lisa of early years will return. Maybe Joe's story?

I've read everything Lisa has written, particularly enjoying her earlier series: Wallflowers, Hathaways, and especially her Bow Street series. Even the Travis trilogy, although I don't care much for 1st person narrative. The first three Friday Harbour books too ... but Crystal Cove lost me. Could be, in part, that I'm not a fan of paranormal writing, and I found the main characters quite lacking in depth and development; the chemistry between them appeared to me to be artificial and forced. Perhaps many readers found the discussion of the various kinds of witchcraft interesting, but, to me, it was tedious and overdrawn. And, I looked for, and missed, Lisa's droll, dry witticisms so often spoken as rejoinders by her characters! I'd so looked forward to this book, but my money was wasted and I plan to delete it from my Kindle. I do, however, hope to hear of further writings by this author, and perhaps I'll play it safe and wait for the library to carry them.

I forced myself to finish the book and am glad I did not purchase it. The witchcraft, curses, soulless male, all seemed silly, totally unbelievable, as did relationship between small town inn keeper and sophisticated, worldly, jet setting entrepreneur. Jason was described as a loner, wary of strangers, yet falls for Justine almost instantly. Too much Pretty Woman here. Lisa Kleypas has been one of my favorite historical fiction writers, and I respect her decision to venture into new territory, but regret it left me cold.

I pre-ordered this and wish I hadn't!! I've read all her older books and series and enjoyed them. And I enjoyed the first three Friday Harbors (partly because I love the area) Each one was a little darker and less sweet than the last. Crystal Cove was dark and down right creepy (was she trying to please 50 Shades readers?). I read rom. ance for the fun humor, sweet story lines, characters I like and can relate to, and happy endings. Most of all I read them to leave me at each stopping point and most especially at the end feeling good. This story did not have these elements I read Romance for. The hero is too manipulative and clearly takes advantage of Justine - a character we've come to love from the other books. He does it "for love" that is just not believable and with too many betrayals. I enjoy light paranormal romances (such as Lynn Kurland) and some witch stories (mostly Nora Roberts) that even when dark or serious don't blur the lines between good and evil and keep the love story "true". This left me feeling so yucky after I had to find something else to read to "get the taste out." This is not a typical Kleypas story - and was so different from her others in this series I feel cheated. Can I get my money back? I'll read Lisa again but hope if she ventures this far out of the happy romance genre there will be a warning on the back!!

That's the one word to sum up the book for me - stupid.

I cannot believe that Lisa Kleypas wrote this absolute drivel. The book was one of the worst books I've ever read, and it's such a disappointment to me given the fact that the series have been one of my favourites.

I've loved the insertion of magic and the supernatural into these books, it was so unlike what I was used to from Kleypas but I thought she pulled it off really well. Alex and Zoe's story was beautiful as were Lucy and Sam's. Justine and Jason however, the story couldn't have left me more cold or empty inside.

Their chemistry felt forced and contrived, the plot was riddled with holes, and the concept that this story was built around was weak and uninteresting. Justine is so desperate for love that she's tried every spell in the book to get it, until she realizes she's cursed and breaks the curse somehow. Step in Jason, who does not have a soul - literally. He wants the magic Justine has to try and extend his lifespan.

Justine and Jason meet - fireworks. Not. Well, Kleypas would have liked us to feel the fireworks she attempted to create with her writing, but I think she failed miserably. Instead it felt silly how the minute they met they decided they were oh-so-in-love with each other, and Jason immediately began to act like he has the right to control every one of Justine's actions, and became an overbearing pig.

There was nothing attractive about Jason. And nothing attractive about Justine. This strong, hilarious, sarcastic, clever, witty character that I met in all the previous books is gone when she starred in her own story.
