Much Ado about Magic | [Patricia Rice]

Much Ado about Magic

Much Ado About Magic is the delightful tale of a painting that takes on a life of its own. Because Lady Lucinda Pembroke’s paintings have a reputation for being prophetic, her picture of a handsome man laughing as a ship sinks causes widespread gossip. Londoners are sure it must be Sir Trevelyan Rochester, gloating as his wealthy cousin drowns. As Lucinda tries to repair his reputation, she creates a mutual desire as colorful as her brushstrokes.

    Story
    "A very entertaining and enjoyable historical romp."

    This was a slightly different story than the typical 'rogue' type story line - it has all the elements tho, but more. Lady Lucinda's paintings are thought to show the past, present or future but, unaware by her, one of her paintings actually turns out to depict Sir Trevelyan a handsome ex pirate, who has been trying to come back into society to find a wife, and the painting is thought to portray him as the murderer of his cousin who is missing and presumed dead. So he is furious and tries to find Lady Lucinda to throttle her.... but she is one step ahead of him and she has other plans then romance, mistaken identity, magic and humour all ensue.

    A credit well spent.

    "Loved the Story and Loved the Narrator"

    I actually selected this book because of the narrator, Simon Prebble. I love Simon's voice. I've been a huge fan of his since he did the Stephanie Laurens Bar Cynster books.

    Much Ado about Magic was a nice change from the normal historical romances. Any story that makes me laugh, like the characters, makes me misty-eyed and hate to see a story end is a book worth recommending.

    This book did all that. Simon's narration put it over the top for me.

    "The rest of the series please!"

    This was really interesting. I love the combination of historical and paranormal.
    I hope audible adds the rest of the series soon.
