Review by Wisteria

Miranda Dubois longs for a tall, handsome man to take her away from her carnival life. Too many towns, and one night stands, have left her feeling like she will never find love. With every tarot card reading she gives, she dreams of seeing her own future and finding her soul mate.

Since inheriting the Mystic Dragon Occult Shoppe, Edward Jove hasn’t had a moment to himself. Business obligations have kept him from enjoying his shop’s success, and from finding that special someone. If he can’t find love, at least he can have a little fun at the carnival.

Amidst the glitter of the midway lights, two lonely people move closer to each other. Will this magical night bring them together or keep them apart? There is only one way to find out . . .

Miranda has grown up in the carnival life. Reading Tarot cards is her calling now that her mother is gone. Life is full of new towns and passing lovers, but that is not what she longs for. Miranda wants a home, a husband and a family. Edward is alone running his mothers Occult store. A chance trip to the carnival lands him in the fortune tellers wagon. She reads his cards and steals his heart.

I must say BRAVO!!!!! I loved the story! Fell for the characters and at the end I wanted more. SMOKIN’ love scenes completed a well rounded story giving it all the angels it needed.

HOWEVER…

There were many editing issues that I felt were blatant and not addressed when they should have been. I felt like I was reading a first draft that had never seen edits. Not that it detracted from the story itself! I would still recommend the read based on the authors wonderful ability to craft a well written tale. It’s just a shame that poor editing pulled this rating down from where it would have been had the document been properly polished as it should have been.

Despite this, I truly enjoyed this story — the plot and characters were more than enough to make me overlook the editing shortcomings!!!! I very much look forward to seeing more of this authors work in the future.
