REVIEW: Portia never dreamed that her life could change in an instant, but it has. Growing up as a normal teenage girl she's amazed to find out on her sixteenth birthday that she is a witch. Her grandmother is the high priestess of their coven and her father is a warlock. Add to that her crush is also a warlock in the same coven as her.
Admiring Vance Magnum from afar, Portia never thought Vance could return her interest. Little did she know that Vance was just waiting for the day she would turn sixteen and hoping that she would return his affections. Falling in love with one another seems to be destined especially since it seems that Vance and Portia are soul-mates.
Can their love survive when Vance's past catches up to him though or are they both destined to be alone once more?
I LOVED THE TROUBLE WITH SPELLS. This has to be one of the best books I have read all year. The magic, the romance, the suspense all blends to make The Trouble With Spells an excellent read. The descriptive settings make you feel as if you are in the book and the characters are all well-defined, personable, and easy going. Portia is sweet and sassy whereas Vance, a romantic at heart, made me fall in love with him and want a Vance to call my own.
The love between Portia and Vance is undeniable and rare. The innocence between them and their love is something a lot of people spend their whole lives looking for.
I'm anxiously looking forward to reading the other books in this series. I highly recommend The Trouble With Spells to all your fabulous readers in search of a good book.
About The Author-
Lacey Weatherford was born in Ft. Meade Maryland while her father was serving in the military. She has been a life long resident of Arizona, spending most of her time growing up in the small rural town of Clay Springs.
It was while she was attending the small country school in Clay Springs, that she read her first "big" book at the age of eight. It was a Nancy Drew novel and Lacey was instantly hooked. She read every book that she could find in the series and decided that she wanted to write stories too.
Lacey spent a lot of time at the library from that time forward, even volunteering in her later teen years and early twenties. She would don a crazy clown outfit for the Friends of the Library fundraisers in an effort to help get the new town library built.
When she and her husband moved away from the area, Lacey took the opportunity to take some creative writing classes at the local college to help further along her interests. Several years later, they were blessed with the opportunity to move back to Clay Springs with their family. The town had finally succeeded in building their library and Lacey had the opportunity to be President of the Friends of the Library for a very short time, before relocating.
Lacey and her family still live in the White Mountains of Arizona, where she continues to write young adult novels that have a fantasy/fairytale or paranormal bent to them, as well as being sure to include a great romantic storyline!
