A Fun, Charming, & Quaint Contemporary Romance Read
This book was such a fun, charming, and quaint contemporary romance read!
This book is about Sabrina Parker a magic effects creator who has written a screenplay and is on a mission to create her dream movie. However, in order to bring this project to light she needs the perfect magician!
This book is about Walt Bryson, a magician in small town Beaufort, North Carolina. Sabrina finds herself in Beaufort and there is an instant spark between her and Walt that seals the deal for them as partners.
Sabrina and Walt begin working on the movie project together and it is obvious that there is chemistry between these two! But will there be enough magic for these two to last off stage or is this relationship strictly professional?
This was a fun, enjoyable read!
I really liked the main characters, Sabrina and Walt. They were genuine, kind, and likable. Both characters had difficult backgrounds and brought that drama to the relationship. Plus, there was quite a bit of back and forth, but, that’s real life, so it only made the characters seem more realistic.
There were lots of supporting characters that are shown as like little stories and relationships inside the main story. It offers another dimension to the book, but also somewhat weighs down the storyline as some character’s stories just get lost in the background noise. Not sure all those supporting characters were absolutely needed.
However, for the most part I really did enjoy Mrs. Flye’s writing style as she was superior on detail. She carefully thought-out certain passages that when I read them I wasn’t reading them – I was seeing them! Perhaps like my own little movie magic occurring! Haha sorry couldn't resist! And Beaufort has now made my travel bucket list as it was beautifully described and the main setting of this book.
Although this book is book four in the Sleight of Hand Book Series, it can absolutely be read on its own without any confusion or misunderstandings. I had not read any of the previous books in the series and had no problem following along. Although, it does sound like some of the characters cross over into the other books, no plot spoilers so after you enjoy this book, you can easily go back and get caught up from book one like I might be doing as well.
All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend this book to anyone interested in a fun, charming, quaint contemporary romance book!
