4-star review for The Magic of Lavender

I happened across this wonderful review on Goodreads - the Pen and Muse rated The Magic of Lavender 4 stars!

Roane, the reviewer, said:

The Magic of Lavender is a lovely paranormal romance that taps into everyone’s love of magic and soul mates.
Jocelyn is surrounded by magic because she is related to the goddess Iris. But she turned away from the world of magic because her late husband disapproved. Now, she has a new lease on life: she has bought an inn and intends to turn it into a success story, surrounding it with fields of lavender.
Although the story moves really fast at first and it takes the reader a while to get into the fast flow, Jocelyn, her friends and family are likeable characters; so is the town’s resident veterinarian, Eric, with whom Jocelyn feels a tenable connection.
The tension between Jocelyn and Eric is the element in the story that creates the most anticipation, conjuring images of passion and love that every person longs for. Cate’s writing is sensuous and inspiring, and the flow of the plot becomes so smooth that you cannot wait to find out how the story ends, and whether Eric and Jocelyn are truly meant for each other.
This read is fast and fun, and inspires one with a feeling of the possibility of love.

Thanks so much Roane! I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

I've heard of author papering their walls with rejections. You should make a lovely wall with all your terrific reviews tacked on it.

I used to have enough rejections to paper the walls, Susan, but I burned them. :) Thanks!

Thanks Maria!
