It’s a rather charming book, kind of ¼ Charlaine Harris and ¾ Sherryl Woods...I’ve never been much of a big fan of cozies, but this supernatural cozy was alright.

Synopsis

Nola Leary would have been content to stay in Kilcairy, Ireland, healing villagers at her family’s clinic with a mix of magic and modern medicine. But a series of ill-timed omens and a deathbed promise to her grandmother have sent her on a quest to Half-Moon Hollow, Kentucky, to secure her family’s magical potency for the next generation. Her supernatural task? To unearth four artifacts hidden by her grandfather before a rival magical family beats her to it.

Complication One: Her grandfather was Mr. Wainwright and the artifacts are lost somewhere in what is now Jane Jameson's book shop. Complication Two: her new neighbor, Jed Trudeau, who keeps turning up half naked at the strangest times, a distraction Nola doesn't need. And teaming up with a real-life Adonis is as dangerous as it sounds, especially when he’s got the face of an angel and the abs of a washboard—can Nola complete her mission before falling completely under his spell?

Reviewed by Haley Kral on May 24 2013

The book as a whole has an issue of telling and not showing. Most of the book was paragraph after paragraph of information dumps that didn’t seem entirely relevant to the story.
