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.

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. Why cant someone just wave a magic wand over him and bring him back refurbished as a proper boyfriend and save her the trouble? But when Leo meets Isabel and starts changing before her very eyes, Emma realises she should be careful what she wishes for...
