Magical Moments

This second book in the series is just as magical as the first book. One of my favorite tropes has always been a story where the main characters are engaged in a fake relationship and it works so well in this tale. I also like that the characters are evolving and growing as the series progresses. I recommend Jennifer L Hart's newest series to anyone who enjoys well crafted and fun reads. Jacqueline Rendell's narration is great adding to the enjoyment of the story. I was given a free copy of the audiobook and I have voluntarily left this review.

Magic and laughter, what more can you want?

Thoroughly enjoyed this duology. Lots of action, mystery and laughter. It has a well-planned plot and character growth as well as well-written dialog and pace. The narrator does a great job defining characters with voice modulation, accents, etc., so you always know who's talking. This series will definitely go into the "worth listening to again" category.

Adored it

I absolutely adore this authors writing style no matter the genre so far I I’m just smitten with her work! This midlife paranormal series is no different. Joey is a jaded midlifer who wanted to go back and change her accident that ended her career. She made a deal with the Fea Prince Robyn in book one. This is book two and she’s awaiting for him to arrive to finish the deal. What she isn’t prepared for is the major surprises headed her way and all the family drama that goes with it. And like most people everyone has an opinion to share with her. She struggles to believe in her self and not let others color her choices for her. This book has the ever present fight between good and evil but also includes person growth, closure and love but not in a sugary sweet way. I love seeing Joey find her back bone and finally following her own path. Gramma Bs notable quotables are hilarious and you might even start to feel for Robyn. Loved the progression and heart this story has! Such a wonderful job!


The narrator does phenomenal too! Seriously just made this stellar book even better!

Conversation is good

Joey tended to aggravate me because it seemed like a lot of her problems was caused when she just simply refused to have an honest conversation. But isn’t that always the case? If looking for a good story based on relationships more than adventure & action this is the book for you. Woman power rocks.

Excellent, Fantastic ,Fun, Sweet, Loving...

Wishing is somewhat dangerous some times. Important to know what you are wishing for, just in case it comes to be!
Normally I would have liked to have move time with Joey and Robin. I'm sorry to let go here. But,the company is ready to leave,and say farewell.I will let them go, and find the fun and fantasy in another kingdom of Fae, hopefully as wonderful as this series has been.
Thank you for the time spent with you, Jennifer Hart, Jacqueline Rendell.

Thanks Kaye

P.S. I almost forgot to tell you, Don't skip a single page or whatever it is in audible. Don't waste any time you have with these folks!.

Good Story and Narrator!

I enjoyed the story but feel Joey is too harsh most of the time. Once you keep listening you start to understand why and realize the author could have put more details about her love interest. I still enjoyed the story and recommend reading it. I really loved the narrator she made the story fun to listen too and I am very picky about narrator's. I will be finding more books she narrates.

Better than the first one & a fabulous wrap up!

This one picks up 1 month after Over Fae Hill, and doesn't disappoint! Joey's stiil a bit of a Stephanie Plumb, but has learned her lesson, and is a much better character in book 2! The characters developed further and I loved the direction they went. The world is the same, and Grammy Bee's words of wisdom had me snorting with laughter at the begining of each chapter! Fae magic, some snark, a little mystery, more steam, and lots of fun as Joey meets his family! Well done, did not disappoint!

I received an ALC of this title & CHOSE to leave a review.

A Very Happy Audible Listener

I am delighted to of discovered Jennifer L Hart, she has become my newest go to author, and I am really enjoying her books.

This is the second book in a 2 book series, and I loved it, not only is the main character a middle aged woman which us slightly more mature ladies can relate to, there is also a gorgeous Fae Prince called Robin, and believe me ladies we could all do with a Robin, in our lives.

The narration was superb and the story fast paced, I was hooked and not once did I find my mind wandering off. When I had finished the story I was pleased with the ending, the only sadness I felt was that it is only a 2 book series.

If you enjoy Paranormal Women's Fiction, then I would be sure to give this series a go and if you have never listened to this genre, then why not loose yourself in some fantasy, believe me I think it is well worth the Audible Credit.

A massive thank you to Jennifer L Hart for giving me the opportunity to listen to and review another great book.

great characters and an exciting story

The first book has already impressed me, Jennifer L. Hart knows how to create characters and give their story depth - without losing the lightness or the humour of the story. I was looking forward to the next book.
The story skilfully builds on the first book and any gaps in knowledge are filled in on the way.
The characters got under my skin again. Although the faeprince Robin is an eye-catcher, Joey is reserved towards him. This book is not about a few hot sex scenes but about trust - in every way. Robin and Joey have to find trust in each other. The author captures the insecurities of both and their inner struggle. The entire plot is written from Joey's perspective, but Robin's side is easy to grasp. While listening to the story I discovered more behind the charming prince and how his feelings changed him. The tension and attraction between these two is perfect.
But Joey and Robin must not only face themselves and their emotions, they have to handle a threat as well. The plot surprised me and it remained exciting until the end.
The narrator Jacqueline Rendell is consistently convincing. She knows how to portray the characters, especially Robin.
Jennifer L. Hart's series is one of my highlights in this genre and I'm looking forward to read more of her books.

Enjoyed the Story

The story was very enjoyable with fun and interesting characters. Actually was pleased it's only a two book series as there is a certain satisfaction in knowing the story will end. My only complaint is one of the main characters is supposed to have a Welsh accent. The narrator could NOT do a Welsh accent instead she sounded like the b****d child of a scotsman and an a irish wench, very distracting.
