Janie Adler likes her quiet, orderly life reviewing books for a small New Orleans newspaper exactly the way it is. So what if Duke Hot Pants, the hero of her favorite romance novel, is the only man in her life? She has a Pulitzer Prize to chase. That is until her quirky twin sister Rachel moves in, bringing boyfriend drama, a smelly ferret, and irrational belief in all things magickal along with her.
Persuaded by a local voodoo priestess-and maybe one margarita too many-the twins cast spells to improve their love lives. Loser-magnet Rachel focuses on avoiding the wrong men and Janie seeks her romance novel ideal. While plenty of eligible bachelors flood into their lives, Janie only has eyes for her coworker who lives in the apartment downstairs and works in the cube next to her. But the twins soon discover the incantations' many unintended-and dangerous-consequences. The increasing number of mishaps and misfortune putting the sisters in grave peril seems more like the work of a curse. Can Janie and Rachel's "twintuition" save them from the menace stalking them?
Nothing can break up these twins!
Janie and Rachel are identical twins. That can always be fun! Though they may be similar in certain ways, but when it comes to relationships they couldnt be more different. Janie is more of a romance women, hence the pile of romance books by her bed! Rachel has bad taste in men, hence the situation she's in. Its okay with Janie because she never liked the guy so she is quick to help her sister out of the relationship she was in.
But her boyfriend has other plans. With Janie's neighbors help, Ryan, everything turns out to be fine. Or so they thought. Rachel convinces Janie to do a spell with her. A spell that will solve their relationship problems. Janie hesitates at first, but she really wants her very own hero so she eventually agrees.
What Janie doesnt expect is a man to come into her life. One who wanted out of her life many years ago. Only he wants back in, no strings attached please! Janie however want strings attached, just not with him. Not anymore. Her parents are certainly happy about her decision.
Just when Janie thinks she's got her romance book relationship, someone is stalking them. Her and her sister. She thinks. With help of some newly gained friends Janie and Rachel want to get this crazy guy behind bars. Forever.
Wells had me laughing with the twins relationship and gasping with the mystery of the stalker. The ending was unexpected and very creepy, in a good way of course. I love a book that keeps me guessing till the end and this one was one of them.Magick Charm was very enjoyable and memorable. I myself is a romantic at heart and the last chapter had me wanting my own hero.
I look forward to more of Wells work. Magick Charm definitely has a place on my shelf where it will stay and be re-read!
