Publisher's Summary

Eliot Parker's good-for-nothing deceased husband has left her a new lease on life: a house in sleepy Nodaway Falls, New York. But his offer comes with a cost: his ghost.... As if being married to him wasn't hard enough!

Nodaway Falls turns out to be a town with more than a little magic in the air. Eliot swore off using her own powers 16 years ago, thanks to one catastrophic day when she lost the only people who ever mattered to her, and ran away from her spellbinding father and his reckless enchantments. Now, when a chance encounter with quiet, handsome Desmond Lamb results in a magical explosion that rocks Eliot to the core, she can't help but wonder: Has her heart fallen under some sort of spell? Or is this what true love really feels like? The real question, of course, is whether her husband will stop haunting her...and let Desmond give her a chance at happily ever after.

Amanda Ronconi is the best!

Funny, Sweet, Adorable!

I had grown bored of reading or listening to books of my chosen genre. They had become either good for putting me to sleep or made me sorry I had purchased them. On my fifth search for something different, I found this book. Somewhere toward the end of the first chapter, I had a feeling I would fall in love with the story and it's colorful characters. And I did! If you want to read something lighthearted and just plain fun and need a break from your regular literary material, this is the book for you.

Great series

Final book about magic and love, friendship, in a small town in upper state New York. This last book brought all the characters you knew and love or disliked came together and worked it’s magic of happy ever after. I believe there were 3 books.... Ronconni as reader... is the best story narrator. I would listen to any story she read.Have fun with this story line it’s worth your time.

Awe...

Soooo cute. Amanda you are awesome. I don’t have a favorite story in this series but I do have a favorite character. Desmond is that my fav. This was full of emotions. The very things poor Desmond stole from himself. I was ecstatic to see his name when I went in search for the next book. I hated disliking him in Stacy’s book. All through that book I just wanted a turn in the story so he’d jump back to the good side. And Amanda does such a fabulous voice for him. Elliot whom is both broken and strong was the perfect woman for him. They fixed each other and saved the day and found a framily in Nodaway. Lucy March is seriously talented these story’s are way more than paranormal and always make me think of the movie Practical Magic. There is more normal life than spectacular fantasy in all of these stories. I still love how creative she is with it, the bad guys power was making Daisy’s. ;). What a BA lol. I really hope there is more to come I’ve LOVED reading all of these.

Fun and magical

I was lucky enough to win a copy of the audiobook and halfway through, I'm loving it so far. This is the third in a series, and I haven't read the second 'Nodaway Falls' book yet but I will be reading it soon, I'm sure. (Probably best to read the others first, since the premise of this one seems to spoil the 2nd book, I think? Not sure yet, but knowing what I know now, I wish I'd read them in order.) I'm very much enjoying Amanda Ronconi's narration.

Update: Finished! So much fun. I'm definitely going back to Nodaway Falls soon. I love Lucy March's breezy, profane writing. ;-) Magic is not my normal wheelhouse, but there seems to be an internal logic to the magic in this town and it wasn't all fairies and fantasy (also not my wheelhouse), so the magic here was fine by me, enough so that I'm going back to read the others in the right order, and find out some spoilery stuff about Desmond prior to this book. I love the idea of this uptight British guy falling for this cussing mess of a woman, and vice versa. Four and a half stars from me.

It's all within the title love through magic

This, my first introduction to the writings of Lucy March; although it certainly will not be the last. As I found the storyline to be cleverly composed through the introduction of a host of different and delightful and somewhat plausible characters within a perfectly written scenario of a love story. And with the narration of Amanda Ronconi it was rounded out to a perfect presentation. Truthfully, it’s the workings of Ms. Amanda Ronconi that enticed me to the writings of this unfamiliar author. Thank you once more!
