Publisher's Summary

Patricia Rice, a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, has won numerous awards, including the Romantic Times Reviewers Choice and Career Achievement Awards.
Much Ado About Magic is the delightful tale of a painting that takes on a life of its own. Because Lady Lucinda Pembroke’s paintings have a reputation for being prophetic, her picture of a handsome man laughing as a ship sinks causes widespread gossip. Londoners are sure it must be Sir Trevelyan Rochester, gloating as his wealthy cousin drowns. As Lucinda tries to repair his reputation, she creates a mutual desire as colorful as her brushstrokes.

A very entertaining and enjoyable historical romp.

This was a slightly different story than the typical 'rogue' type story line - it has all the elements tho, but more. Lady Lucinda's paintings are thought to show the past, present or future but, unaware by her, one of her paintings actually turns out to depict Sir Trevelyan a handsome ex pirate, who has been trying to come back into society to find a wife, and the painting is thought to portray him as the murderer of his cousin who is missing and presumed dead. So he is furious and tries to find Lady Lucinda to throttle her.... but she is one step ahead of him and she has other plans then romance, mistaken identity, magic and humour all ensue.

A credit well spent.

Adorable storyline!

This book was gifted to me by a friend. Narration and storyline were both very good although the storyline was slightly predictable up to the point they discovered they could change the future from what she depicted in her drawings. Interesting concept. Enjoyed reading.
