4.5 out of 5 Stars

Another one that I loved! The story is hysterical and from a fresh perspective. The two main characters are best friends and that’s the best kind of lover in my opinion. Your best friend knows your moods and how to help when you feel down. I have always felt that to truly know someone, you need to live with them first.
In this book, Adelle Hendrix and Ben Jackson are “platonic” roommates who attend their friend’s wedding. Adelle “hates” weddings, having been jilted at the altar the day before she was to be married. The wedding they attend is gypsy themed and Adelle stumbles into the fortune teller’s tent. The fortune teller, who happens to be the groom’s grandmother, has a “magic mirror”. She explains that in the mirror, the viewer will see her future mate.
I’m not going to give up the ending, but I think you can guess what happens. The fun part of the story is how they get there.
I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading more books by this author.

Our Blog was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
Adelle Hendrix doesn’t believe in hocus pocus. She doesn’t believe in happily ever after, either. So when she sees her best friend, Ben Jackson, in a supposedly enchanted mirror, she decides she’s not the crazy one, the loony old gypsy woman who showed her the mirror is.
Except that crazy old woman won’t leave her alone, and the more frequently she and her jack-o-lantern with the ever-changing carved faces show up, the more Adelle begins to wonder… Are she and Ben meant to be more than friends?
This book is not meant to be read by readers who are looking for a serious, boring read with a tragic ending. Only fans of funny and everlasting romance should pick this one up.
The inside of the tent was bare save for piles of silken material strewn on the floor and an elderly woman who sat in a throne-like chair, a small round table before her. A squat, grinning jack-o-lantern and a fat red candle with a bright, tall flame were perched on the table. The candle and the carved pumpkin were the only lights in the tent, but they clearly illuminated the woman who sat behind them.
The woman who, by Adelle’s judgment, looked to be approximately a thousand years old. Her face was heavily lined, her cheeks sagged, her nose was crooked. She wore a brightly colored scarf on her head, wispy gray hairs sticking out from under the silky material. Her body was covered with the same type of peasant shirt and billowing skirt that Adelle wore, except it was uncomfortably obvious she wasn’t wearing a cleavage-enhancing bra, because her breasts hung somewhere in the vicinity of her knees.
“Quit staring at me, girl. You’ll look like this someday, too, if you’re lucky.”
“Lucky,” the woman said, as if Adelle had repeated the word out loud. “You wanna know how many hunks I had in my day? There’s a reason I look so worn out.”
