Hidden Magic


Loved it! 😍

Magic, Mystery, and a whole lot of Loving in this hidden town of Hallows!

HIDDEN MAGIC appears to be a standalone but could easily be the first book in a series. Sasha is on the run from her abusive ex-fiance when her car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. She is rescued and taken in by Aunt Amelia, a petite old lady who seems to have the townspeople wrapped around her little finger. Not everyone is pleased to have someone new in town though.

This was a great story that has plenty of pages and detail to keep your interest. Sasha hadn't had an easy life even before she met her ex but how she reacts to some of what goes on felt a bit... strange! She fights her attraction to Jake, until she doesn't. And I honestly have never heard of anyone, male or female, being so much a slave to their lust. I can't believe I'm about to write this but Sasha and Jake should have cooled their heels a little bit and spoken more!

There is a lot that goes on in here. Not only do you have the town and its occupants themselves, with all the politics etc that goes with that, but you also have Sasha's ex, her training as a mage, her job as a chef, integration into the town, PLUS a murder. I thought it all came together brilliantly. The only thing that didn't quite sit right was the murder. The reasons behind it, and the blood, and Sebastian's worry was over... what, exactly? I enjoyed that part of the book but it didn't feel complete which is why I wondered if this was the first of a series and that was going to be part of the overall story arc.

Overall, this was a great read. I loved the length of it and the descriptions, trials, and tribulations of the townspeople/races. This is definitely an author to keep your eye on and I have no hesitation in recommending this book.
