And a great way to kick off reading for this holiday season since it's not about Christmas at all, but set around it with snow.
Cassandra was resourceful, stubborn and clever in her thoughts and words. I did side eye the miscommunication element between her and her ex-fiance, but Wrexham being utterly open about his feelings on the matter helped.
I do wish we learned a bit more about him - serious minded, driven, stubborn, intelligent, hard working...we saw much of this on display, but for the life of me I can't remember a single hobby or leisure activity he enjoyed? Or how he proposed to Cassandra? We're thrown into the middle of their history together with a lot of lamentations and 'just don't understand why' conversations.
Otherwise I quite enjoyed the secondary characters, as much as this was Cassandra's book, they had lives and histories and lessons to learn as well. The good natured teasing from her older brother and his wife, the way too candid Mr. Samson and the convinction of Miss Bell to fight for a brilliant future for her and her girlfriend...it was all engaging.
I wonder though if Cassandra will be quite so eager to make rash promises in the future...
I loved the main character a lot. The idea to start the story from the “end” was brilliant. We meet Cassandra not before she discovers he power and struggles to be accepted, but after she got it all and lost it all. But the endings are in truth also the beginnings. The book is a lovely start for the series and I think it would be a delightful reading adventure to follow Cassandra’s journey of discovering her new porpoise and place in life.
At the insistence of her sister-in-law, Cassandra attends a house-party, and is promptly confronted with her ex-fiancé, her limitations now she can no longer use magic, and a mystery about who is interfering with the weather.
This is a funny story with supportive family banter, a delightful romance and an interesting dilemma (dealing with losing one’s magic). It is short and a little predictable, but that’s part of the appeal. I read this twice in row.
Favourite quote: I yanked my gaze away from my ex-fiancé, breathing quickly. The room before me was a blur of colour and movement, but somehow, my eyes couldn’t focus on any of it.
“Oh come now,” Jonathan said cheerfully. “Don’t stop now! It’s better than theatre, watching you two moon over each other.”
“I am not—!” I cut myself off with a snarl as my wits caught up with me. Taking a deep breath, I blinked the room into clarity and said with great dignity, “I’m sure I don’t know what you mean.”
“We should sell tickets,” my brother told me. “It’s like watching an opera, but far better because there’s so much less tuneless shrieking involved. No, it’s all wordless emoting and high drama with you two, and—ow!”
The romance subplot really worked for me and I cheered for the couple (bonus points for not being super young)
All the supporting characters are entertain and seem quite real.
Can I have more please?
