Welcome back to another installment of Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Breaking the Spine. Here's a little change from the regular books I pine for. This one sounds like a light and fun read with a touch of magic. I love the cover, too.
Title: A Little Night Magic
Author: Lucy March
Publication Date: January 31st, 2012
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Deliciously witty and delightfully sexy, A LITTLE NIGHT MAGIC is the story of Olivia Kiskey, a small town waffle house waitress who discovers she has magical powers which put her on the frontlines of a mystical war, forcing her to navigate her way between good and evil, day magic and night magic, love and waffles. But the waffles are really, really, really good.
Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he’s never made a move. Every Saturday night, she gathers with her three best friends—Peach, Millie, and Stacy—and drinks the same margaritas while listening to the same old stories. Intent on shaking things up, she puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends . . . but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman who shows Olivia that there is more to her life than she ever dreamed. As Liv’s latent magical powers come to the surface, she discovers that having an interesting life is maybe not all it’s cracked up to be. The dark side of someone else’s magic is taking over good people in town, and changing them into vessels of malevolence. Unwilling to cede her home to darkness, she battles the demons of her familial past and her magical present, with those she loves at her side . . . and in the cross fire. Can the most important things in life—friendship, love, magic, and waffles—get her through the worst that the universe can throw at her?
