Review
  • Chapman continues her magical Spellbound Falls series in this fun story featuring widowed-mom-of-four Peg. The only magic Peg has experienced is the curse she is convinced kills all men that the women of her family love. She is not willing to take a chance with Duncan, a character from Chapman’s Tarstone Mountain series (Highlander for the Holidays, 2011), who has come to build a road and needs Peg’s gravel pit. He is drawn to the strong woman and her children and protects them from attacks on her property. Mac Oceanus, newly married to Olivia, manipulates more than mountains as he encourages Duncan to find the source of his previously dormant powers. Peg, her children, and Duncan are vivid and funny characters and readers will very much enjoy this story and the entire series. Chapman continues to maintain a great blend of magic, romance, and realism in a small-town setting, tales in the style of Barbara Bretton’s popular books. -- Alessio, Amy (Reviewed 05-15-2012) (Booklist, vol 108, number 18, p25)
  • In this heartwarming sequel to Spellbound Falls, beautiful Peg Thompson, a young widow and mother of four mischievous children, is finding it increasingly difficult to withstand the attentions of Duncan MacKeage, a handsome, strong, and friendly newcomer to Spellbound Falls. Working daily on Peg’s property, which became prime oceanfront land after a miraculous earthquake, Duncan is intrigued by her strong will and loving heart, and is surprised to be rebuffed. When he learns that she believes she was the cause of her husband’s death and is fated to be a curse to any future husband, the charmed time-traveler knows he must prove to Peg that his strength is greater than her fears, which means getting her to join him on a critical magical mission that will test both their resolve and their love. Despite a few too many clichés, readers will enjoy the enchanting town and characters. Agent: Grace Morgan, Grace Morgan Literary Agency.
