Rating: 4 Cups
Lissa signs a six-month agreement for a plantation house without seeing it. All she wants is peace and quiet to finish her novel. She has no idea she will be sharing it with a handsome ghost.
Jesse is a permanent fixture in the Pearson house. When anyone rents it, he is always there. Once Lissa moves in, she is one person he never wishes to leave.
Lissa is Amaryllis Rose, the author of Red Roses, the book on the bestseller list, which is about to be made into a movie. When she enters the rented house, she cannot get over the handsome man who claims to be a guest there, too. Then she learns he is a ghost, so much for her quiet time. While shopping in town, she meets Jared Hallbrook, the owner of the River Bend Bank, who gets weak in the knees when she is around. They begin dating, which does not sit well with Jesse. He hates his fate and does not want Lissa to be with anyone else. With Jared and Jesse vying for her attention, which lucky man will win her heart?
Magnolia Magick is an awesome book. Lissa is realistic in all her actions, even down to being a klutz and trying to accept compliments. I love her spunk, to go on with life no matter what she faces. Jesse is my hero and can stay with me anytime. There were many times I could feel the anguish and hurt that lay in his heart. I love the way Jared and Jesse fight over Lissa, showing their jealously. Jessica Coulter Smith pens a story where I sat in anticipation of the outcome of Lissa, Jesse, and Jared. It was a pin and needles, on-edge, page-turner for me. Thanks for the memories of Stone Mountain, too.
