Crítica completa no blog Pepita Mágica: goo/Kvm3UgMagia do Amor é o segundo volume da saga Sugar Maple e não desilude. Aquilo que Bárbara Bretton nos mostrou em Feitiços de Amor manteve-se neste livro. Escrita coerente, personagens que são fiéis a elas próprias. Uma boa continuação à estória de Chloe e Luke. ()Não é propriamente um livro extraordinário, mas cumpre o que promete e está ao nível do anterior, deixando-me interessada o suficiente para querer continuar a ler esta sa [...]
Another great book in this series. Again, really a "mystery" here, other than solving problems and learning more about the towns history / Isadora's plan. This one was full of emotion and dark powers and romance. Poor Chloe has so much on her plate I can't imagine dealing with it all. There are some very big choices to be made in this book, about love, about fate, about choosing a town over a child, etc. It was really well done and easy to read. The characters are interesting and I'm looking for [...]
Fiction is about making up a story but far too many spectacular, spooky titles, fizzle into debunked endings. Barbara Bretton has the gumption to bring on the paranormal! She is enormously funny but in no way that dims the vibrant ambiance of magic. At last, here is a superbly-written cast of characters that deals daily with the unseen realm. I enjoy the concepts of series in the vein of Madelyn Alt and Mary Stanton but mystical content was sparse. Barbara rewards our craving for etherealness. I [...]
I love that Chloe embraces both sides of her background in this book, she is both human and a sorceress. She’s still learning her powers which provide some laugh out loud moments, like when Luke ends up the size of a Ken doll. Luke is amazing to me, willing to stand beside Chloe in the face of things he can’t even begin to understand. That’s true love. In a romance, the hero and heroine are most important to me, and I adore these two.Their relationship does have some rough spots, which is [...]
Good second entry into the series. I am not usually into paranormal romance but this may have me hooked to the genre for good now.
This was a good follow-up to Casting Spells. I enjoy it when authors use the same setting/town and characters to write multiple books and as always, Barbara Bretton is a master storyteller. The plot was good, but I felt like it was the same thing over and over again. Chloe must choose between between humans and magick creatures and the townspeople all distrust Luke. Sometimes that aspect felt a little slow. I also thought the townspeople were extra mean and nasty this time. They put so much pres [...]
Este livro é o 2º da saga passada em Sugar Maple e que tem como protagonista a feiticeira-em-inicio-de-carreira Chloe. Neste livro o seu amor por um 100% humano(Luke) é posto à prova quando a má da fita, a fada Isadora, aprisiona a alma da filha de Luke, que faleceu devido a uma distração deste.A ex-mulher de Luke também está metida ao barulho e no meio disto tudo confesso que gostei mais do 1º livro. Tinha mais sentido de humor, que neste 2º volume está mais apagado e a temática de [...]
This is the sequel to CASTING SPELLS and has three point-of-view characters, all of them still sounding so similar I had to page back on occasion to see who was talking.I liked the characters and the magic, but knitting had even less to do with the magic in this book, even though two of the point-of-view characters were knitters.While some of the conflict in the story was satisfactorily resolved, the ending was a bit of a cliff-hanger, so there will need to be a follow-up. I hope the author figu [...]
Although Bretton's wit is just as apparent in this novel as it was in Casting Spells, she handles the delicate subject of a child's death with care and sensitivity. Anyone who has gone through anything similar will recognize this.For the knitters and crocheters there is a special treat, a collection of knitting tips and a scarf crochet pattern for the beginning level. I might give that one a try.And finally, in an author's note, Barbara Bretton pays tribute to her mother, the wonderful lady she [...]
3.5 stars, good and despite it having been several years since I read the first one I didn't feel terribly lost. My only complaint is that we were left with a pretty decent cliff hanger.
The continuation of the Sugar Maple saga with its peculiar but delightful characters and a lot of magic to lighten up every pageMaria CarmoLisbon 21st Augusr 2012.
Every thing is finally working out for Chloe Hobbs, half sorceress half human and mayor of Sugar Maple, Vermont. That is until her lover’s ex turns up claiming to be haunted by her dead child – in Laced With Magic by Barbara Bretton.As well as being mayor of Sugar Maple, Chloe is the owner of a celebrated knitting shop. The shop is so popular that at times Chloe has difficulty keeping up with requests for yarn. Chloe sometimes wonders if its popularity is due to some kind of spell that has b [...]
Another delightful bit of knitting fluff. I recommend this to knitters and only to knitters. If you don't knit, you're not going to find my favorite quotes relevant to anything."Suddenly I had everything I had ever dreamed about: magick and love and enough yarn to last ten lifetimes.""Believe me, you know you love a guy if you're willing to knit a pair of socks for his size-twelve feet." My husband wears 12.5 EEEE. I am not effing around. This is love, people."Hadn't a lovely selkie couple from [...]
I didn't like this as much as I liked the first one. The subject was dark and sad. There wasn't as much about the characters beyond what was revealed in the first book. Very little to hold me in. I gave up about halfway through the book. Flipped to nearly the end and seriously, it was as if I was reading the same scene all over.
The jumping around between Chloe and Karen was confusing at times! Especially when things were moving along quickly and things were already slightly confusing as it was, but I still enjoyed it. I do wish there was a bit more interaction with the residents in Sugar Maple since they're always fun.
Cute series. I'll read them all.
LACED WITH MAGIC by Barbara Bretton was a beautifully light tale of magic and romance. I’m not sure what I was expecting when I picked up LACED WITH MAGIC, but this book exceeded that. The story was fantastic, the suspense full and captivating, and to top it all off the romance was completely delicious. If you’re looking for a good Romance with a nice touch of magic, LACED WITH MAGIC is it.Readers were first introduced to Chloe, part sorceress and knit shop owner, in Bretton’s first book, [...]
This review was originally posted on my review blog : Falling Off The Shelf (3.5 Rating)Chloe Hobbs is a sorceress-in-training, as well as the owner of a extremely popular knit shop called Sticks and Strings. As a knit shop owner, Chloe has it made. She has an unlimited supply of yarn that never tangles and a huge fan club. If life were this easy, I think we would all be especially greatful. Outside of the knit shop, Chloe has a whole new set of problems. She's just getting used to having a huma [...]
Originally posted on Joyfully Reviewed: joyfullyreviewed/revieThings are finally going right for Chloe Hobbs. Her latent sorceress powers have finally kicked in, she saved her town from being pulled beyond the mist, she banished the power-hungry Fae leader, Isadora, and best of all, she’s in love with Luke Mackenzie, the town’s chief of police and only resident full-blooded human. But Chloe’s bubble of happiness is popped when Luke’s ex-wife, Karen, shows up in Sugar Maple, claiming the [...]

Synopsis from the back cover: Ever have the feeling that the fates finally got it right? That’s how I felt when I met Luke MacKenzie. And no one could have convinced me otherwise—not the trolls, selkies, or spirits who also call Sugar Maple, Vermont, home. But since I live in a town that thrives on secrets, why am I surprised that the man I love has a few of his own? Because out of nowhere his ex-wife has suddenly shown up, claiming to see the spirit of their daughter, Steffie—a daughter I [...]
I read this book without reading the first book in the series, and now I regret it. The author did a very good job of filling the reader in on everything that happened, so now I'm torn. On the one hand, I enjoyed this book so much that I'd like to go see what happened before. On the other hand, I feel like I already know what is going to happen.This was a really fun read. I don't have a lot of experience with paranormal romances-- the only ones that I've read before are by Nora Roberts, because [...]
Warning: This volume ends on a cliffhanger!These books are surprisingly well-written. I enjoyed how this book was fluffy and fun, yet at the same dealt with some serious issues. Many romance stories end after the chase and the couple getting together. This book gives us a glimpse into what happens that isn't magically happily-ever-after. Barbara Bretton does a good job dealing with the dynamics of Chloe meeting Luke's ex. They don't love each other at first sight, even if they're both knitters, [...]
Dramatic and witty, but still as kooky as every.4 star storySeries: Yes, book 2 of "Sugar Maple"Characters: Luke and ChloeSetting: Sugar Maple, VermontSexual Themes: a few scenes of light descriptionRecommendation: A fanciful, light read, perfect for the supernatural lover and the knitter. This is not a difficult read, the romance is filled with tension and conflict and the story will captivate you with all the town's wit and splendor.Sugar Maple is a small town in Vermont based off of Salem MA, [...]
A 3.5 star review - rounded down.About half way through the book it looked as if I would end up giving it two stars at best. A horrible disappointment after I had enjoyed the first book so much. But fortunately Barbara Bretton managed to redeem herself in the second half, and in the end she regained my trust and at least almost lived up to my expectations. So after thinking I might not finish the book at all, I now find myself considering continuing with the series after all.But the first half w [...]
Originally posted at Nose in a BookWe meet Chloe once again. Chloe still lives in Sugar Maple, Vermont, with her boyfriend Luke, whose contract is up soon which leads Chloe to wonder if he is going to stay or if he is going to move back to the big city. Another problem, magic is running amok in town. If that isn’t bad enough, Luke’s ex-wife comes into town with some secrets of her own. And these secrets are a doozey.This book is an excellent second book in the series. It does not hit the sop [...]
As with the first book, the only thing that really annoys me about Laced with Magic is the attitude shared by Chloe and the citizens of Sugar Maple that Chloe is somehow obligated to stay in the town, protect the town, get together with an appropriate man (i.e. magical and preferably of their choosing), and have babies. They all act like she owes them. Yes, they raised her when her parents died, but they didn't do it for her own sake; they did it to keep their precious town protected. Even her s [...]
Apesar da história de Chloe me ter contentado desde o inicio, não me entusiasmei particularmente com a sua paixão e talento no tricô.A este aspecto soma-se o facto da escrita de Barbara Bretton ser um pouco infantil, o que resulta numa linguagem para jovens, mas um conteúdo para adultos. Claro que este conteúdo a que me refiro não se limita apenas à temática das lãs e outros tecidos, mas também a uma cena mais intima no segundo volume ou aos acontecimentos no geral da vida da personag [...]
Book two in the Sugar Maple series is very good. The way the story is continued is really well done and makes sense with the original story and characters, but with a new story line and different challenges for Chloe and Luke to face.Chloe's magic has finally come in, and she has won Luke, so she figures it's only a matter of time until the required daughter comes along to fulfill the prophecy and keep the town where it is.But, of course, that would be too simple! Instead, the ex-wife Luke never [...]
Right from the very beginning, this book grabbed me and kept my attention throughout the whole story. I didn't know this was a sequel to a book called Casting Spells (although I will now be searching for a copy!). I loved the way the story was written. I found myself flying through the story. was written almost as if being told by a friend. I really liked the characters. I could totally understand how Chloe was unsure of "the ex" but still wanted to fight on her behalf. And as much as I wanted t [...]
