I handed out goodie bags of knitting gadgets and yarn samples and smiled at the oohs and ahhs of appreciation.
I could only take them at their word on this, same as I did on everything else I couldn’t see or hear or understand. First off, this book was recommended to me by some list somewhere because I like knitting and I like modern fantasies. How would they react to the fact that the hardware store-owner and his sons are werewolves, or that the funeral home director is a vampire?
I’ve found I’m a little iffy on first person in the best of times positive example: Jul 18, Megan rated it it was ok Shelves: Sep 06, Mary Robinson rated it it was ok Shelves: She was right about that. Barbara Bretton is a new-to-me author, so I had no idea what to expect, but the knitting aspect of this story immediately snagged my interest. All that was missing I read this book with single-minded hope: Lynette popped back in. I don’t want to give too much away about the story, but this is a great start to a new series set in Sugar Maple.
So my vote is skewed by the fact saccharinely sweet was not a good fit for my mood while reading. Maybe she could have just fallen one of those times?
MacKenzie’s presence could threaten the very existence of Sugar Maple as he pokes into things better left alone. Ten million to one sounded about right to me. Knitting is perfectly easy if you have magic!
Welcome back to Sugar Maple. Dec 15, Patricia Mainard rated it really liked it. Chloe Hobbs is a person that I would like to know in real life. Babrarapages. I’ve loved it for decades!
Casting Spells (Sugar Maple, #1) by Barbara Bretton
Yes, I did, very much! A little magic, a little romance, crazy neighbors that include selkies, toothless vampires in the local retirement home, good and bad Fae, and lovable characters all come together here.
You know the kind I mean: Sugar Maple looks like any Vermont town, but it’s inhabited with warlocks, sprites, vampires, witches and an ancient secret. I love handmade garments and this castig heirloom quality. A Harry Potter like book that really is fantastic. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys paranormal romances and knitting based books! Yes, the story is told in barara first person. Series by Barbara Bretton. I really enjoyed the novel.
Her shop was a top link on websites and blogs from neighboring New Hampshire to Malaysia with all stops in between. Brettkn and Lynette exchanged glances and I didn’t need extrasensory powers to know exactly what they were thinking.
Really, I’d much prefer to read terrible castnig than boring ones. I was as solid and earthbound as one of the maple trees in Willard Grove.
Everyone in Sugar Maple knows we don’t talk about wizards in front of civilians unless the conversation includes Munchkins and Oz. I, however, found it silly. Usually I itch to knit something after reading those, but this time it was more about the romance than either knitting or the mystery. As Sugar Maple’s temporary police chief, Luke soon notices the village’s odd ambience.
The town is filled with magical beings, and protected by a charm created three centuries ago by Chloe’s ancestress, Aeryn I very much enjoyed this first installment in the Sugar Maple series.
Nora Roberts fans should love this series. All of those seemingly random decisions we make throughout our lives that turn out to be not so random after all. But the spell is unraveling and Chloe, the town’s only hope is now 30 and loveless. This was a story primarily about Chloe coming into her own and it was really nice to see her find happiness.
Thanks for accepting my friend request.
It barbra quite easy to picture the picturesque town and its inhabitants. A dark blue Spatterware bowl of T-pins rested next to it. Somewhere in Time 3.
