Successful businesswoman Alex is content with her life in London, and any ideas of romance have been left on the back burner. But when her fairy godmother, FG, waltzes into her office one morning announcing she has come to help Alex rekindle a passion for life and love, she is about to check herself into therapy!
The fairy godmother’s incessant wand-flicking soon lands them in the isolation of the Scottish highlands, where Alex’s next client, Mal Ross, not only stirs her professional interest but her romantic ones too.
Tasked with the enormous challenge of turning a historic castle into a flourishing hotel, the pair must work closely together whilst attempting to avoid the awkward situations the rom-com obsessed fairy godmother keeps forcing them into.
But the path of love is never smooth, no matter how much magic you throw at it.
The Magic Spark was a delightful read. The story was peppered with romance and laugh-out-loud fun, courtesy of FG – the Fairy God Mother.
This is the fourth novel I’ve read by Mishka Jenkins, so I knew I was in for a treat in terms of strong, feisty characters and a well-rounded love story.
My favourite parts were undoubtedly the series of circumstances FG creates in order to throw the two main characters, Alex and Mal, together. Not only were they set-up perfectly, they are beautifully written. As a reader, you cannot fail to see the magic happening.
As well as taking us to Scotland and planting us smack bang in the middle of the action, Mishka also shows us the strength and power of community. There are intriguing twists, with heart-felt emotion and real-life drama. The plot is well balanced and is a definite page turner.
Mishka is skilled at creating tension and conflict between characters. I was rooting for Alex and Mal right from the start – I was totally on FG’s side!
I would highly recommend the book, and know I will gain as much pleasure when I read it again.
