When chemist Grace O'Leary finds a book of magic spells hidden in her Aunt Lucy's run-down magic shop, the scientist in her itches to try them out. She mixes up a batch of love potions as a joke, and has to face the consequences when they actually seem to work.
Her dream of becoming a professor is in peril, and time is running out to finish research for her dissertation. She can't handle any more distractions, but the magic shop is on the verge of closing, her aunt has become forgetful and confused, and a handsome reporter named Dario Fontana keeps sniffing around for a story. The last thing she needs is for him to find out about the love potions and expose her as fraud, but she begins to trust him, and the sizzling chemistry between them is soon too powerful to deny.
With her personal and professional life in chaos, and her budding relationship with Dario in jeopardy, Grace is faced with a difficult choice. Fixing what is broken means going against every logical bone in her body. Can Grace learn to silence her scientific brain long enough to accept the truth about magic…and also about herself?
The romance is lovely and so is the nerdy quotient
This is para normal events with a fairy godmother and a Italian grandmother that gets results. A delightful and absorbing story with something for every reader
Even if you don’t believe in magic, this book makes you believe in how science and magic can and do fit perfectly together. Love is a form of both, the science is the chemical reaction, the magic is with you to create that chemical reaction (not faking it, be true to yourself about your feelings) that is the magic.
Enjoyed the story and couldn’t put it down
