"A little magic goes a long way"
A WITCH FOR GOOD LUCK combines the love story of Syd and
Mel (two immortals), with the story of Elizabeth and Adam
(two humans). While Syd endlessly tries to help Elizabeth
and Adam fall in love, Mel gently tries to woo the cranky
witch while playing her assistant. However, as the
saying 'three strikes and you're out' goes, this is her
third try to help mortals fall in love. If she fails, she
will be doomed to oblivion. Nevertheless, each spell she
casts backfires helping to support her 'Bad Witch'
Elizabeth, unaware of her otherworldly assistance, has
escaped a nasty divorce. Losing her good name and
reputation in the process, Elizabeth only wants to
restore her grandparents' house in Montana so she can turn
it into a bed and breakfast. Falling in love with the
hunky construction worker wasn't part of the contract, er
Louise Crawford weaves a funny tale of the trials and
tribulations that couples encounter on the road to
romance. The term 'watch the sparks fly' truly takes on
a new meaning and you can't help groaning at the
situations the four characters find themselves in. The
question, 'is a little magic helpful, or a hindrance?'
comes to mind. You'll just have to read the book in order
to find out!
