I suppose being heir to the Hunter family’s Blushing Grape Winery should make me happy, but nothing could be further from the truth. With my mother gone, my father has taken me under his wing, and I despise everything about the way he does business. Sour grapes, indeed. Instead of raising money for charitable causes, my true passion, I’m chasing my father’s manifest destiny.
Too bad his dream includes paving paradise.
Too bad the property owner is the sweetest woman I’ve ever met.
They say the course of true love never runs smooth.
But that’s nothing a magical cupcake can’t solve.
Title: The Cupcake Witch (The Chancellor Fairy Tales Book 2)

After reading The Cupcake Witch, another magical novella by Poppy Lawless, I am ready to pack up everything and move to Chancellor. In this town lives a mermaid and now we meet a hearth witch, who is the sweetest, loveliest witch to grace the streets of Chancellor. We meet Rayne in this novella, but in 2016, we will learn more about him in The Bee Charmer, the third installment of The Chancellor Fairy Tales, and why his eyes have that special sparkle. Gah, I can't wait!
Julie is brave, independent, and has style that is all her own. Horatio says she is gorgeous, as if "she'd stepped out of a Botticelli painting, stopped by Woodstock for a makeover, then landed before me to make me lose what little cool I had managed to acquire over the years." I couldn't describe her any better. And seeing how she affects him still makes me smirk.
I think I fell in love with these two characters--individually and as a couple--is because we get to see them through the other's eyes. Now, that's magic, and makes their sweet romance even more perfect.
The little Tudor cottage that Julie inherits is as much a character as Julie herself. Seeing it for the first time elicits awe. I felt the magic, even with all the dust, and fell in love with it just as fast as Julie did. Oh, to sit in the Victorian greenhouse sipping tea and admiring the shop would be peaceful and magical. I finished this story feeling content and happy.
