No Shoes, No Shirt, No Spells
"For the love of all things deep-fried, how was I going to live up to her talent?"
As far as Elly knew for the past 28 years, there is no such thing as magic. That is until she comes home to take over her grandmother's cafe to find that Imelda has been supplementing her recipes. Now faced with helping the people in her small town with magical helps Elly is slightly overwhelmed. And when the handsome Rory accidentally gets a love spelled order meant for something else, things start to unravel. Now Elly has to find a way to reverse the spell in order to keep the cafe open. But her feelings for Rory are getting in the way - especially if the only solution is to help him get back with his ex-girlfriend.
My Opinion: Fun, sweet and light romance mixed with a little magic! Who could ask for more? With the magical slant you get a paranormal romance that isn't as dark as vampires and witches are. Elly is an adorable character, slightly clumsy but with a good heart. Rory is a great "white-knight" hero. I loved the side characters - especially Tom. The light mixture of a slightly magical world along with fairly realistic reactions made this a great read. The romance was super sweet and made me smile and curled my toes a few times. Definitely a good read and I would recommend it.
I received a free copy of this book to review. No other compensation was given. The summary and opinion are 100% my own.
