This was a fun book with great characters and although it didn’t rock my world, it made me laugh and look forward to the next page…~ Under the Covers
Nola Leary has come to Half Moon Hollow, Kentucky because of a death bed promise made to her grandmother, one her grandmother is determined that she honour even from beyond the grave. She has to find the four Elements, four artifacts each representing one of the elements, before her rivals do, if not her whole family lose their magic. But things get complicated when she finds long lost relatives, some crazy new friends, not to mention her Adonis like next door neighbour who seems to be allergic to wearing tops…
I always enjoy a Molly Harper book, it is hard not to with her mixture of funny banter and some really quirky heroines and of course a great romance. Although they never quite make it to a 5 feather review with me, that doesn’t stop me enjoying her books and looking forward to the next one.
What stood out for me most in this book was the humour and the relationship Nola quickly develops with some familiar characters such as Jane Jameson and Dick Cheney. The romance between Jed and Nola was really good as well, they had chemistry from the start but it was a allowed to build up so that you got to know Jed. He wasn’t just the sexy guy who was there for her to conveniently fall in love with, but a funny character with issues of his own.
The story line itself about the elements wasn’t particularly strong and it was a bit of an anticlimax at the end but it was a good vehicle for Nola to start looking at the issues she had with her magic and eventually come to terms with it’s presence in her life.
This was a fun book with great characters and although it didn’t rock my world, it made me laugh and look forward to the next page, what more can I ask for?

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
