Genre: Contemporary Romance
Sydney Logan charmed me in this magical story about love in the Appalachian Mountains. When a sacred ritual brings a 13yr old girls love spell for prince charming to fruition on her 21st birthday.
Angelina Clark comes from a long line of mountain witches. In tradition on every young females 13th birthday a spell is cast to bring the girl her one true love on her 21st birthday. As a child Angelina anticipated this day. She had faith in magic and then that faith was suddenly taken away with the death of her father.
His death brought fear and uncertainty into her life causing her faith in magic to crumble. She no longer practices in her supernatural gifts. She no longer believes.
Or does she? Because for a brief second she seems to when she pulls up to her home and spots a handsome man waiting on her porch, petting her dog.
‘There are moments in a person’s life that absolutely shake them to their core. Moments that make them re-evaluate their every thought, their every decision.
This was Angelina’s moment.’
A writer by the name of Dylan Thomas, from the news paper in the city comes to Maple Ridge in hopes to reveal the family secret of the mountain witches. The second he meets Angelina he is captivated by her beauty and taken aback by her furious attitude. Angelina wants him gone, away from her, her mother and her dog.
And when she finally sends him running to his car..And I do mean running in the literal sense to his car. Then and only then is she satisfied.
“What if it’s not real?” ~Angelina
As Dylan begins to feel the inexplicable pool towards Angelina, she does too. But she fights it with every fiber in her being thinking it can’t be real. Magic has failed her in the past so why would it do right by her now.
Angelina fights magic while her mother fights cancer. The stress takes its toll on both of them as their mother daughter bond is pulled even closer over their impending fates.
Love is definitely in the air and even though everyone around her can see it, Angelina needs to know it’s real and not just a spell cast from a legend passed from her ancestors.
Mountain Charm will leave a smile spread wide across your face once you finish. This was a fun quick read about love, family and tradition that is sure to warm the hearts of anyone who reads it. The writing is solid causing you to automatically embrace the characters. The steam is low and pretty much kept on the pg-13 level as all the love scenes are tastefully done.
Characters- Sweet and lovable
Writing Style- Solid with witty character dialogue
Plot/Storyline- Romance with a supernatural twist
Steam Factor- Low/Light simmer the love scenes are pg-13
Overall- I loved it! READ IT!
Now go forth and read. Then come tell us about it!
