Ivy Grace is learning that magic--and love--are all about the right timing.
Follow the adventures of this spirited young Southern woman as she embarks upon a successful new career writing novels and movies that explore romantic mysteries of the past.
Ivy, a witch who spends her days practicing her brand of good magic in a sleepy little city, often travels back in time to observe events of yesteryear and turn them into compelling stories for her modern-day fans. But as her uncanny ability to weave enthralling historic tales lands her in the limelight, she quickly finds that fame sometimes comes with a price.
Evil forces now know who she is and threaten to reveal her family’s most sacred magical secrets.
With the help of her ruggedly handsome editor and a sexy supernatural ex-boyfriend, Ivy must unravel history while fighting to keep these ominous forces at bay.
Will Ivy be able to make the ultimate sacrifice for the people she loves the most?
Let's go from the start. Ivy is a witch and comes from family that has been hiding their powers or talent. Besides being a witch Ivy tries to live life normally and tries to chase her dreams. One of her dreams came true after she wrote a successful novel, but the problems start when some people find themselves in her story and realize that their secret has been revealed. Then the problems start. Even though no one could assume that Ivy's book is more than fiction as it talks about one of the trickiest frauds. But the real problem is that is explaining the truth to her editor without revealing her biggest secret. Not an easy task.
The story itself, especially the one from the past was really magically created and the way that Ivy stumbles upon it makes the whole thing really likable and good. Only Problem for me was love interest here. Luckily nothing big to worry about, just typical story. When we talk about ruggedly handsome editor he is exactly that. Not that you need more, though. I did liked his character but problem was the predictability in their relationship. It was like good old Hollywood story. That itself wouldn't be big deal but then we come to the ex-boyfriend. I can't say it was a love triangle (sort of, kind of) but at least Ivy wasn't whiny about it. That makes me like her character even more.
Finally, the story itself was great, innovative and really enjoyable, with little issues but nothing that would ruin the whole story.
Rating: 4 stars.
