The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic by Emily Croy Barker

I have a love/hate relationship with this book. Parts of it were so engaging I couldn't put it down then all the sudden whatever I found fascinating dropped off and the author picked up something different. There is a very long stretch in the middle that screams for editing. It goes on forever offering little to no value. And the end. Dang it! No matter how I felt about the rest of the book, I still wanted it to have a proper ending! But alas, no such luck. It just stops. Drops right off. The epitome of cliff hanger. This is the first of a trilogy and if someone gives me the next one I'll read it but I certainly won't pay for it.
