magical and imaginative.

I have always believed in magic, especially when I watch The Santa Clause and read Harry Potter. Emily Croy Barker has created a real grown up novel that revolves around magic, and I couldn’t be happier about it. The Thinking Woman’s Guide to Real Magic really begins when protagonist Nora Fischer wanders away from a rather depressing wedding to find herself the darling of an A-list crowd garden party that never seems to end. Nora is transformed into a gorgeous woman and finds herself married to an even more gorgeous man, living a life enviable by most people. But all is not as it seems when Nora finds herself plunging into an ever darker world, inhabited by ordinary people, fairies, and warlocks. The use of magic in this novel is very creative, and the plot is extremely satisfying with its unpredictability and excellent character development. Honestly, Barker left me wanting more, which she apparently intends to give in a sequel. Thanks lady friend.
