Review: Miss Spelled
Magic realism mixes with romantic comedy in this new novel from Sarah Belle about the dangers of internet shopping – and using magic to solve real world problems.
Lou’s life is perfect. She loves her job, her renovated house, and most of all, her gorgeous fiancé, Aidan. But when her old flame and Aidan’s school yard nemesis turn out to be the same person, Hunter Wincott, Lou’s life is blown apart. She must divulge her secret past, or have Hunter give it away. Either way, she runs the real risk of losing Aidan.
In desperation, she turns to Google. A quick search turns up Majique, the Internet Witch, and a spell that will delete herself from Hunter’s memory. But something goes wrong in the casting process, and Lou deletes much more than just a memory. She deletes herself from her life completely.
Luckily, there’s a one-week window for Lou to get back to the life she loved. One week to win back Aidan, before he walks down the aisle with the wrong woman, and damns everyone to a lifetime of misery. It would be easy, if only Aidan had any idea who Lou actually is.
Review Rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS
Review: An intriguing read, Miss Spelled is funny, light, and magical!
Lou is just about to have her dreams come true. Then things spiral out of control in the most...crazy of ways! Oh my!
This book IS definitely a lighthearted read, but there's some great emotional depth to it, too. It's layered with humor, a touch of magic, and great character depth and growth. I was very pleasantly surprised at the turn out! Lou is a fun character, really enjoyed her from the start. I'd love to see this book in a made for TV movie or something, I think it would be perfect!
Great reading...I haven't read this author before Miss Spelled, but she's on my radar now!
