Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, NY, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias the cook for the last four years; he’s never made a move. Every Saturday night, she gathers with her three best friends – Peach, Millie, and Stacy – and drinks the same margaritas while listening to the same old stories. Intent on changing her life, she puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends… but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical southern woman who shows Olivia that there is more to her small town life than she ever dreamed. As her latent magical powers come to the surface, Olivia discovers that having an interesting life is maybe not all it’s cracked up to be. The dark side of someone else’s magic is taking over good people in town, and changing them into vessels of malevolence… including Millie, who has been a shining example of sweetness for Liv since they were kids. Unwilling to cede her home to darkness, she battles the demons of her familial past and her magical present, and learns that the important things in life – friendship, love, magic and waffles – can get a girl through almost anything the Universe can throw at her.
A Little Night Magic is the story of a waitress, Olivia, a cook, Tobias and the waitresses three best friends, Peach, Millie and Stacy, and the odd things that happen to them.
My favorite character in the book is Tobias, his dilemma about Olivia is great and I like the way he handles it. I like Olivia as well, but she has one truly irritating, at least to me, characteristic. Her initial reaction with almost any kind of conflict is to give up, this reaction gets her in an abundance of trouble.
I really enjoyed this story. It flowed well, had a good pace, the characters are well developed and interesting. I also enjoyed the concept of “magicals” – people with magical abilities.
A little Night Magic is a fun and well written story that any magic lover, and most anyone else will enjoy.
