When Charlotte meets mysterious Ronan, her comfortable life is upended in a confusion of magic, monsters, and birds. Lots of birds. But Ronan’s increasingly ridiculous gifts are the least of her concerns – the spell connecting them is ticking like a bomb, and time is running out.
“I really enjoyed the interaction between Charlotte and Ronan. There were interesting supporting characters and quite an amazing amount of adventure/suspense (not sure which to call it – the characters are in danger but they are not seeking it out) for a fairly short story. The way the Twelve Days of Christmas poem was woven into the story was quite intriguing.”
“Brightley delivers with a magical, funny sweet romance that’s peppered with the literal gifts of the twelve days of Christmas, leaving Charlotte with enough enchanted birds to fill her apartment.”
