Book Description:

She’s nearly perfect – He’s almost the one

Hubble Bubble, the Vet’s in Trouble
When Patrick’s caught in flagrante with a local beauty queen,
his father delivers an ultimatum: one more newspaper scandal and Patrick will be out on his ear. Desperate not to lose his job at the family veterinary practice, Patrick needs to avoid trouble
– and girls like Libby.

The Ballerina’s Broken
She’s a headline waiting to happen and mourning her
short-lived career as a dancer, Libby casts a wiccan spell to summon a new love: Good-looking, honest, non-brown eyes, English, good with animals… in a nutshell, she summons Patrick.

But fighting Libby’s love spell will be the least of Patrick’s problems when a woman dies from a ketamine overdose
– Ketamine stolen from his surgery.

Witchcraft, Scandal, Murder…
Will anyone find their perfect Somebody?

My Thoughts:

This book had me hooked on the first chapter. Even though it is mainly a chick lit book there is still quite a bit of mystery/suspense with a couple of unexpected twists towards the end.

This is a stand alone book but there are a few characters from the authors previous book #Forfeit who make an appearance. Have got to say though I much prefer the new characters in this book. The book has a really good storyline that any chick lit book would be proud of. I love the character Libby and got very attached to her and her welfare in the book. The book gives you that nice warm glow that I tend to find chick lit books give you.

A really enjoyable read that had me hooked from the start and also loved the ending.

Many thanks to The Book Club and the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have awarded this book 5/5 stars.
