    These were comical. I was a little disappointed, I thought they would resemble the fairytales of my youth put only a few of them did.

    This was just a run of the mill love story. It needed some intrigue, Mystery, action or anything to make it more interesting than just a love story. Boy meets girl, they fall in love and live happily ever after. For what it was it was good, I just expected more, especially after the Edilean Series.

    After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness's enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew's ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches - with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency.

    Gemma Ranford wants the job cataloging the documents of the Frazier family so much that she is ready to do battle to get it. Fascinated with history, and desperately trying to finish her dissertation, she's hoping against all hope that the papers will yield new information to invigorate her research. What she didn't expect to find is references to the Heartwishes Stone - believed by most to be pure legend - and said to grant wishes to anyone named Frazier. As Gemma learns more about the family - and even begins falling in love with the eldest son, Colin - it becomes clear that their wishes are actually granted.

    Days of Gold and Heart Wishes are the best of the series. I couldn't put it down, it ties the new with the old and has mystery, love, intrigue and magic. If you only read 2 books it should be these 2. The narrator's are also the best of the lot. I wish they did a better job of putting the series in order, I'm still not sure which book should go were, I thought I had book 2 figured out and then the next book I read I thought should be #2, but it was still a great series.

    I can't believe how these books are out of order. Days of gold #1 . Scent of Jasmine #2. I don't know where the 5th one falls I'm reading that now. I loved this book and the narrator was much better then Lavender morning and Scarlet nights . I wish the order was right and a good narrator read them all but this is a very good series and I recommend them highly.

    Jocelyn Minton is a woman torn between two worlds. Her mother grew up attending private schools and afternoon teas, but she married the local handyman. After her mother died when Joce was only five years old, her father remarried into his own class, and Joce became an outsider - until she met Edilean Harcourt. Although she was sixty years Joce's senior, Miss Edi was a kindred soul who understood her like no one else ever had. When Miss Edi passes away, she leaves Joce all her worldly possessions, including an eighteenth-century house and a letter with clues to a mystery that began in 1941.

    These books were out of order and unfortunately have different narrator's. The narrator to this book has the same voice for all the characters, I had to back up a lot because I didn't know who was talking. The narrator can't hold a candle to Davina Porter. To bad she didn't read this one. I hope book 3 has some of the same characters, but from the description it doesn't. It has another narrator change, hope she is better. The best part was the ending, a real tear jerker.

    Someone is prepared to kill again and again until Tormand is found guilty and hanged. And his only hope of discovering the culprit lies with Morainn Ross, a reclusive, sensual beauty gifted with second sight. Branded a witch, Morainn has never met a man who accepted her strange talent, much less one who could so easily inflame her passion. There's no resisting Tormand's rugged masculinity - and no escaping the enemy, who grows more twisted every day.
