"A magical tale combining King Arthur, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty"
Ten years ago, lawyer Nora Barr is not having a good day.
In fact she's not really having a good life. Her mother
encouraged her to follow her dream, but she's not sure she
meant her to open her own law practice in a city that has
more that enough lawyers. Then she meets Aethelstan
Blackstone and Sancho Panza. Considering they appeared
before her out of thin air, she doesn't really think things
are looking up! Even after she lets them know she can't
help them out, she doesn't forget them. Then Sancho calls
for help. She comes running and finds a neighborhood in
flames and Aethelstan under arrest for murder. When she
takes responsibility for the storage and protection of a VW
microbus (and mysterious contents), things actually do
start looking up!
Now Nora's wishes have pretty much come true. Her law
practice is flourishing; she has enough money to live
comfortably, and she's married (and divorced) the man of
her dreams. Ah, but there's still that microbus. Today
she is drawn to the storage facility where she is keeping
it for Sancho. When she opens rear doors of the microbus,
that's when the magic begins...
This is a magical tale that combines King Arthur, Snow
White and Sleeping Beauty. The heroine is Nora, but Emma
also plays a big part. After all, you'd have some
adjusting to do after sleeping for 1000 years, wouldn't
you? There really isn't a lot of romance and the sex is
rated G, but this book is a lot of fun to read. The
secondary characters are great and I think the hero is to
die for!! So if your looking for a story that truly has
magic in it, this is the one. I just finished reading
Utterly Charming - a book I bought and couldn't put down! I
read it in one night. It's about a modern day woman who's
a lawyer and her client turns out to be THE prince
charming! He's in a bit of a fix and needs her help. This
story has tons of magic, a magician with a snake for a
familiar and of course the requesite wicked witch! Oh yeah -
sleeping beauty too! It was fantastic and she has a sequel
coming out called Thoroughly Kissed that I can't wait to
get! The characters were so dynamic and as a reader, I
could feel the heroine's attraction for the hero, and MAN,
I love a feisty heroine!! If any of you like stories with
magic, humor and fairytales, you'll really enjoy this book!

A Day In The Life of Nora Barr, Esq.
I can't believe the day I've had. Just when I finally get a
client, he turns out to be a nut case! Not only has he been
arrested for torching a neighborhood, but he also claims to
be the magician who knocked out the Sleeping Beauty a
thousand years ago! Is this guy for real or what? Okay, I
have to admit, he is the most gorgeous man I've ever laid
eyes on. Oh! And did I mention he has a smile to die for?
Pinch me if I'm dreaming, but I think my Prince Charming
has finally arrived!
