Ah! So happy. Somehow a book doesn’t feel real until someone comments on it! Key West Magic is out in about a week (December 7), but somehow Carolan Ivey got a hold of a copy ;o) And she liked it, she really liked it! That means a lot to me, because she’s my reigning queen of magical writing. See her kind words at her blog. Oh, and that’s Hemingway House in the photo. Here’s the highlights:
“As I read Key West Magic I kept thinking what a great movie this would make. The story, the setting, the characters draw you in and make you feel like you’re in the middle of the action, observing it as it streams past you in vivid color. If you can read the opening scene and not fall in love with Trent and his brothers, I’m sorry y’all, but you have no heart!
Trent is one of those fabulously flawed heroes — charming, endearing, sensual, sexy, to-sigh-for, hiding his battle with his inner ghosts behind a brilliant smile and devil-may-care attitude. But the boy’s got Issues, and he wouldn’t be the interesting, complex character he is without them. Fish-out-of-water Julie is the perfect foil for him. She’s only planning to stay in Key West long enough to dispose of the B&B she inherited in a crypically worded will from her grandmother. But for the sexy Trent – her “Magic Man” (ooh la la!), she might just be willing to extend her stay.
Like Key West, Calloway House is full of mystery, ghosts…and secrets. And so are Ciar Cullen’s characters. Peeling back the layers will keep you up all night reading to the very end. Sensual and erotic, Key West Magic is the perfect escape from winter’s chill!
