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?


Nola and Jed are hilarious.  They are witty, fun, and the attraction between them is undeniable.  I loved the situations that Nola got herself in.  She would end up in some of the most embarrassing situations when she was around Jed.  My favorite is clinging to him while she’s in nothing but a bath towel.  It will honestly have you laughing loud.

Both of them have secrets and some of those could put a damper on the the sizzle between them.  Nobody likes being lied to, just sayin’.  And the connect between Nola and some of the residents of Half-Moon Hollow is interesting.  Dick was particularly funny in this book.  He’s always been a favorite character of mine, but he definitely shines in this one.  I also love that the paranormals in Half-Moon Hollow are so accepting of Nola and welcome into their group as friends.

Ronconi once again does an excellent job narrating this book.  She does an awesome job with an Irish-Boston lilt.

I am, and will always be a fan of this series.
