Ever since fabulously wealthy Malcolm Doran walked into her life and swept her off her feet, fledgling architect Jane Boyle has been living a fairy tale. When he proposes with a stunning diamond to seal the deal, Jane can’t believe her incredible luck and decides to leave her Paris-based job to make a new start with Malcolm in New York.
But when Malcolm introduces Jane to the esteemed Doran clan, one of Manhattan’s most feared and revered families, Jane’s fairy tale takes a darker turn. Soon everything she thought she knew about the world—and herself—is upended. Now Jane must struggle with newfound magical abilities and the threat of those who will stop at nothing to get them.
I read this book for 3 reasons.
1. I liked the title & cover design
2. My friend so kindly informed that it was on sale for the Nook
3. It will be an ABC TV show this fall
But I am so glad, today was the first time i read the description of the book. I took one of the lines out of the description above, because it is a BIG spoiler! Way to give away a story turning point! Anyways, this book combines the “hey i am a witch??” storyline with a innocent young American-yet-from-France woman whisked into good life in New York city. Culture shock times three! Poor Jane has to deal with moving to a new city, a new famous NY family and on top of it, she just learned she is a witch from a note. A note for goodness sake!!
But Jane perserveres, trys to make friends in an unfriendly city and finds out why it is more dangerous and unfriendly than she thought. I think readers will like the upbeat but quirky tale.
