Call It Magic
The latest magical romance in the Spellbound Falls series from the New York Times bestselling author of From Kiss to Queen and The Highlander Next Door
Welcome back to Spellbound Falls, Maine—where love is the greatest magic of all...
Katy MacBain moved to Spellbound Falls with secrets she plans to keep. The newest member of the Fire and Rescue Team, she disappeared for three weeks before arriving on the job. She doesn’t understand why Gunnar Wolfe—the town’s interim fire chief and her boss—seems determined to uncover the truth of what happened to her during that time. Or why she’s more attracted to him than she’s ever been to any other man.
A confident firefighter, Gunnar Wolfe doesn’t give up—and he’s resolved to find out what’s wrong with the mysterious and beautiful Katy. Since she is the newest member of his team, he’s naturally protective of her, but he’s surprised to find himself captivated by the tenacious and talented woman who is so...magical.
The late Chapman (1951 2017) weaves a tangled web of magic and mystery in her sweet but overstuffed seventh Spellbound Falls fantasy romance (after The Highlander Next Door). Katy MacBain's new job as a paramedic for Spellbound Falls Fire and Rescue in Maine sends her to Colorado for training, after which she disappears. Worried, Katy's best friend entreats Gunnar Wolfe, Spellbound Falls's interim fire chief, to find her. But he searches to no avail and the two don't meet until a clearly traumatized Katy reappears in Maine and reports for duty at the fire house, refusing to talk about what happened. Sparks fly between Katy and Gunnar from the jump, but he is determined to find out what happened to Katy in Colorado. His curiosity only grows when he witnesses her miraculously heal a cat that he's sure was dead. The mystery of Katy's disappearance provides a dark, emotional through line, but new readers will struggle to make sense of the extensive backstory required to piece together the plot. Though fans will appreciate the many familiar faces, the inclusion of so many nostalgic callbacks to earlier installments detracts from the central romance. This charming return to Spellbound Falls will primarily appeal to steadfast Chapman fans.
Worth the wait
I have been a Janet Chapman fan for years and selfishly I’ve waited for this book despite the families tragedy. Thank you for picking up the mantle I’m pushing through to have this book released. It is a true tribute to Ms. Chapman.
Just thought that out of this series the characters were the least developed and the book just seemed rushed and unfinished.
