Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Totally charming relationship tale, almost a fairy story of a young couple who have been taking each other for granted for too long so Emma throws Leo out and Isobel appears on the scene and then the magic begins. It’s an absolute delight.

Comparison: Catherine Alliott, Isla Dewar, Marianne Keyes.

If you like Carole Matthews you might also like to read books by Marian Keyes, Adriana Trigiani and Anna Maxted.

Synopsis

It's a Kind of Magic by Carole Matthews

When Emmas boyfriend Leo turns up at her special birthday dinner unforgivably late and horribly drunk, embarrassing her in front of her family, she decides enough is enough.

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Judith Sharp

Lovereading is an amazing place to be, the website is wonderful and to me if I'm sad I'll go here and it cheers me up!

Sophia Upton

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

Lynda

Lovereading helps me decide what real people read.

Kerry Bridges

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It has opened my eyes to different authors and genres. Just log on and try, you will be surprised and not want for reading material again.

Jocelyn Garvey

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

Dawn Lynch

I love the newsletter with reviews of all the new books coming out. Can't wait to open it when it arrives in my inbox.
