    1. I love Lisa Kleypas! She is an awesome writer. I am reading Scent of Magic now, so really looking forward to it.

      Lovely to see you yesterday xx

    2. @ Viv - can you believe that Again the Magic was my first book by Lisa Kleypas? I loved it though & have already read Secrets of a Summer Night :o) I hope you love Scent of Magic as much as I did - that is one of my favourite YA fantasy series! I must get around to reading more from Maria Snyder!
