The recent astrological charts of reclusive astrologer, Lady Azenor (Aster) Dugall show that alarming calamities are ahead for the eccentric Ives family, specifically predictions of extreme danger to Lord Duncan Ives, 3rd Marquess of Ashford. Taking swift action, even though she knows she won’t be believed, Aster travels to Iveston Manor to warn Ashford in person.
She arrives auspiciously in a torrential downpour to find Ashford away from home and his brother Lord Theophilus Ives and assorted siblings in residence. Ignoring the incredible disarray of the front hall – was that a telescope atop a pool table? – as well as the appalling dishabille of the Ives men, Aster unfurls her charts to explain to Theophilus why the arrows of danger pointing to Duncan are of immediate concern.
Theo’s disparagement is a customary response to an astrological reading. As an established scientist with the Astronomical Society (that was his telescope on the pool table), Theo’s scorn for astrology is strongly expressed. Responding to his tactless, hurtful remarks, Aster tells Theophilus bluntly that if he ignores the warning, as Duncan’s presumptive heir he would make a thoroughly inept 4th Marquess.
And so the two protagonists lock horns: astrologer vs. astronomer; intuition vs. fact; Libra vs. Sagittarius.
What this introduction has thus far omitted – a grievous omission indeed – is that this first book of Patricia Rice’s new Unexpected Magic series is downright hilarious. Its madcap situations (there are many) are out-and-out funny; Rice’s descriptions of the lusting of Theo for Aster and his deviousness to hold her against him whenever possible had this reviewer laughing out loud. Ms. Rice keeps firm control of the cast of wild Ives men and zany Dugall women through her deft way with words and storytelling.
There’s suspense and mystery and romance to come. Who is behind the danger to Duncan and yes, to Aster, the other accidents, and the ongoing sabotage of the Ives property, and why?
Let your reading enjoyment begin!
This plot had me in stitches, it moved at a satisfying pace, it was filled with intrigue, and so many interesting and colorful characters I found myself laughing and tapping the pages of my kindle to further each page. I am looking forward to other characters and their stories, and fully intend to read their stories as well. I can highly recommend this to lovers of a little bit of magic, even more laughter, and a whole lot of romance.
