I get one free book per month with my kindle app on my phone and this book looked like it could be a good read.
I found that I was not wanting to put the "book" down, there was part of the story that it looked like Elizabeth and Nate would end up with different people (it was a huge misunderstanding) so I thought that at last a different pattern was used and I really thought that there was no way it could be explained. I was enjoying seeing how the different situations played out and how due to a lack of basic communication the situation got that far out of hand.
The characters were ok, nothing spectacular but better than dull dishwater. Elizabeth relies a lot on magic that she never knew she had and she learns the hard way that things don't always go the way you want them to go, just because you really want them to work out. I did kind of feel sorry for her when she finally realised that she can't make love appear and that the last thing she wants is to be loved because of a magic spell that she cast.
I notice that this is part of a series so would be interesting to download the rest of the books as they become available and read, the subject matter is not too serious and it was easy to read, I managed in about ten hours, not always continuous but I did find that I didn't want to put the book down.
