One terrifying premonition brings them together. Another will threaten their future.
Do dreams come true? Dr. Daniel Woodruff hopes they don’t, because his dreams predict a devastating future for him, for those he loves—and for the planet.
His latest premonition, which blows a huge crater in his eroding sanity, holds a singular horror—the loss of a wife and unborn child. Yet another reason he can let no one into his chaotic life, least of all a perky, persistent investigative reporter he finds simultaneously frustrating and fascinating.
Mel Noblett leaves no stone unturned in her one-woman crusade to save the environment. When a whistleblower in Italy proves too frightened to talk, Mel turns to a fall-back lead, an extremely eccentric, beekeeping professor who might just make the trip worthwhile.
Despite their instant attraction, Mel is relieved when Daniel keeps her at arm’s length. After all, she has a secret of her own—one that makes her preternaturally good at her job. And, when Daniel’s terrifying visions prove uncannily accurate and begin to revolve around Mel—it is a gift that could put her life in danger.
Mostly Magic by Donna June Cooper is the second book in the fabulous Books of the Kindling series. In this installment, we get a story focusing on Grace’s brother, Dr. Daniel Woodruff, a world renowned scientist known as the ‘bee whisperer’. Daniel has his own type of magic – he has prescient dreams. Typically he only sees his own future, but that begins to change.
Daniel is in Italy for a conference when he touches a colleague and has a vision related to her. It throws him for a loop and he is desperate to try to change the visions he is having and to prevent people from getting hurt. Mel Noblett is an environmental journalist hoping to get a story from Daniel – but she gets more than she bargains for when she realizes the trouble Daniel is having. Mel has magic running through her as well. There is a near immediate physical attraction between Daniel and Mel, but he is determined to stay alone because of his visions.
I really loved this book and felt it fit in perfectly with this series. I loved the different settings and characters, while still enjoying the familiar characters and settings from the first book. Mostly Magic by Donna June Cooper is another fabulous read. I love how the author weaves intricate plots together with a touch of magic.
