Sticks and stones may threaten bones, but her words can conquer both body and soul.
During his law enforcement career, Sheriff Jake Moser has been called to Woodruff Mountain a few times to deal with some rather weird situations. Now, recovering from a bullet wound that should have killed him and fending off his mother’s ravings about the evil that lurks on the mountain, he’s making alternate career plans.
Just as those plans begin to take shape, someone starts kidnapping newborn babies, then returning them unharmed. To make things even more interesting, an irritating adversary from his past has returned to bedevil him in a whole new, delightful way.
After her erratic psychic gift forced her to abandon her home and a promising musical career, Thea Woodruff has spent years trying, unsuccessfully, to atone for the death of Becca Moser, Jake’s sister. Once she has mourned those she’s lost and apologized to those she’s failed, she intends to flee her mountain once again.
Jake would rather she stay to compose a new tune—with him. But their complicated harmony reveals a guilty secret that threatens not only their future, but their lives…
Warning: A temperamental flute-player returns to torment an old flame, but he has other ideas, and the music they make together is combustible—and magical.
Making Magic by Donna June Cooper is the third book in the Books of the Kindling series. I absolutely loved the first two books in this series, and this book is no exception. This book is the story of Thea Woodruff (Grace and Daniel’s sister) and Jake Moser (the former sheriff). The first two books are woven into this third story beautifully. I love the connections and the recurring and new characters that we get introduced to with each book. Thea and Jake have their own magical abilities. Once again, the author does an excellent job of seamlessly incorporating magic into the modern world. This story is satisfying and filled with romance, magic, and a mystery. I was continually surprised throughout the story.
This is a great series and has the potential to be one of my very favorite series that I’ll read this year. Fabulous storytelling, believable magic and sweet, sexy romance kept me turning the pages in my Kindle and wanting the story to never end. Each story in this series is well-written and definitely worth the read.
