Sweet Spark: Be warned - I love cheezy holiday stories and predictable holiday rom-coms, and this was a nearly perfect book for me :)
Bettie Watson-Hughes has been squatting in a dead old woman's house since she had the good luck to take a house sitting job for someone who never returned. While she could probably go on like this until someone caught her and called her out, her family's annual holiday celebration is likely to rock the whole boat a lot sooner.
While drinking wine and lamenting the whole tragic situation, she accidentally performs ancient magic and summons a holiday spirit. Could Hall be the answer to her getting revenge on all those who have wronged her, or something even more?
I admittedly picked this one up with the 'Magic' in the title expecting a good Halloween book. LOL Luckily I'm one of those crazy souls who appreciates the cheeriness of the winter holidays starting November 1, and this was an excellent book to start it all off for me. I'd give this book a solid 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it to those who enjoy cheezy holiday movies, or twists on classic holiday tales.
Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for my electronic copy of this book. Receiving the book for free did not influence my review.
