Magic by Marianne Arkins

The Wild Rose Press

Contemporary Romance

Reviewed by Katherine



It had been fifteen years of tradition.  Seven friends would go to the cabins.  Girls in the one, boys in the other.  They had grown up, matured, and one couple was now married.

Some things stayed the same.  Cass Edwards was the mother to all of them.  She took care of the guys, knowing they should do it themselves, but doing it just the same.  Everyone else knew they could go to her with their problems.

And Ben Wilson was still her best friend.

Now Cass was starting to look at Ben differently.  He was perfectly attuned to her, her friend and confident, but Cass was afraid that if something went wrong, she would lose Ben forever.

I was very impressed with Magic.  Although not a long story, it had tremendous character development for seven characters.  I loved the camaraderie between them, and would love to revisit this group.  As for Ben and Cass, I do wish it had been a little longer, but only because I hated the story to be over.  I am definitely looking into additional stories by this author.
