Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Molly Harper, but the writing styles are way similar. I enjoyed the first book and this book is no different. Instead of following Liv and her story we get to follow Stacy and her's. All magic going awry what's not to like. Some of it felt predictable but it was a good soft filler read. New characters are introduced and I am actually anxious to see who the next book will follow, Peach or Tobias maybe? I would love more on Tobias' background. Just hope it doesn't take as long to publish as this one did.
I think Lucy March is a solid writer and look forward to reading more of her books.
As always, anything Amanda Ronconi reads is gold, she was an excellent choice for this series.

First Thought when Finished: That Touch of Magic had a strong second half and really great characters. I had fun!
Story Thoughts: That Touch of Magic was slow to start but had a very strong second half. The story did a kind of zigzag that kept you wondering exactly where Lucy March was heading. I did like that I couldn't quite predict where the story was going to end up or exactly how Stacy was going to get herself out of trouble. This read a bit more like an Urban Fantasy than a PNR which was both good and bad. I thought the action side of the story was good but the romance was a little lacking to me.
Character Thoughts: I really liked Stacy. She is a different kind of leading lady. She wasn't perfect by a long shot! She had spunk but that sometimes got her into trouble. She had gumption but that sometimes got her into spots that her mouth couldn't handle. She had magic but not control of it. In other words, she was just a normal girl that got thrown some pretty freaking crazy stuff! Leo was an OK leading guy. I actually liked him but it wasn't until the very end that I felt any chemistry between the two of them. I was actually more invested in the "bad guy". I do hope he gets a redemption story.
Narrated By Amanda Ronconi / Length: 9 hrs and 38 mins
Amanda Ronconi is fantastic! I don't think I have ever been disappointed with her narration. If you get a chance to listen to her, make sure that you do!
Final Thoughts: I am patiently waiting for the next in the series. Overall these are fun and great to listen too!

What made the experience of listening to That Touch of Magic the most enjoyable?
I nearly didn'l buy this book because of some of the poor reviews. Actually it was a good storyline and I did enjoy it. The criticism of how dim witted the main character is ,is a tad harsh and it is very easy to be a know it all when you are on the outside looking in. Not a light book and it has a dark undertone that made it just a bit deeper than normal paranormal ' romance' . Worth a read ..... Yes

This was the third book in the series, but it was not as entertaining as the first two and felt as though the author was scratching about for ideas. It was hard to entertain Desmond as a sympathetic character given he had been thoroughly discredited in the previous book. Despite the author's attempt to reinvent him, I still didn't like him and his inclusion as a positive character spoiled the story. I don't know if there is/will be more in the series, but after this one I've lost interest.
