made a promise when she got married that she would join 1000
couples before she took her eternal rest. Well, the powers
that be made her stand by that vow, and for the last fifty
years she has been a ghost in the elevator of her apartment
building doing exactly that. It’s Valentine’s Day and she
only has five more couples to join before she can be with
her Hiram again. Will she be able to do it before the stroke
by Tea Trelawny is listed and formatted as one story, but it
is actually four in one. We get to see four couples discover
each other and the magic that can bring love into their
Kelly Flynn is
tired. Between school, two jobs, shoes that are killing her
feet, and financial difficulties, she has about had it. And
to top it off, the best tip she got tonight at the private
party was a condom. How the hell is she supposed to make her
rent with that? The last thing she needs is Connor Latimer,
reflexologist and the man she’s had the hots for ever since
she saw him, joining her in the elevator and the two of them
getting stuck. But Miss Fancy is determined to have her
I have to say
this story had me checking up on reflexology and seeing if
there actually were the pressure points that Connor seemed
to magically find for Kelly. I will definitely be urging
hubby to look into it for me. We all need a man as talented
as Connor is.
Russell is a
clutzy accountant and every time he talks with the sexy
dance instructor, Devon, he gets more tongue tied and
uncomfortable. He knows he needs to keep their relationship
on a professional basis, but his body doesn’t listen to him
when especially she offers to teach him the sexy Tango.
I find dancing
an incredibly sexy sport, and look forward to watching or
reading about the reactions people have when in such close
contact. When given a situation beyond his comfort zone, I
like the way Russell takes charge and makes the dance his
Pepper is a
classical musician and Alex is a rock star, but despite
their common love of music, whenever they meet they are at
odds. And it doesn’t help that Alex has made his disdain for
classical music abundantly clear, for the whole world to
This one was my
favorite of the bunch. It had me smiling and giggling, and
happy to see the two of them get together. Alex was sweet
and lovable, totally not what I expected, and I adored him.
Jake has been
called to fix “Miss Fancy” the elevator countless times, and
he never finds anything wrong with it. But almost every time
it acts up, a new couple is helped along by the spirit of
the elevator. Yet, despite the many times he’s seen the
results of her magic, he’s never been the recipient of it.
But if he could only get Sophia, the owner of the building,
to see him as something more than a repairman it would all
be worth it. But will all business Sophia be susceptible to
the magic of her ancestor and St. Valentine’s Day?
This story was expected and, actually looked forward to.
They are the only two people that have a part in at least one of the other
stories, and I was anticipating how Miss Fancy would get two
obviously different people together.
was a cute, fun and easy read. The way Ms. Trelawney
presented each romance as a separate story, instead of
jumping around had me a bit disappointed at first, but I
found it more enjoyable that way. I was able to stop reading
at the end of one “relationship” and go back, knowing I
wasn’t going to be lost. Going Down? kept me
entertained and smiling.
