Chick with a Charm by Vicki Lewis Thompson

Chick with a Charm is the second book of Babes on Brooms by Vicki Lewis Thompson, and focuses on the younger Revere sister, Lily.

Lily is the wilder, more outrageous of the two sisters, dark haired and flashy, in her clothing choices and her decorating style. She has her sights set on Lawyer Griffin, who comes into the Bubbling Cauldron where she bartends every day after work with his buddies. He seems to be interested in Lily as well, but never acts upon it, so she decides to take things into her own hands by slipping an adoration elixir into his drink. Lily is everything that straight-laced Griffin shies away from, but he is still attracted to her. Suddenly his attraction becomes unmanageable and he finds himself unable to stay away from her. The two are thrown into a passionate affair that he just can't understand, it's so unlike him. His friends are soon noticing that his work is affected, and take it upon themselves to investigate, discovering that witches are real, and their pal is under a bonafide spell! Griffin may have real feelings for Lily, but the problem is that he can't trust himself until the spell is broken. Lily also realizes that what they are sharing, while amazing, isn't necessarily real thanks to her spell, and while Griffin is saying and doing all the things she's longed for, they pale when prompted by the potion and not his heart.

With a little help from all their friends, Kevin's work buddies, Lily's sister and her fiance Jasper (our victim from Blonde with a Wand), Dorcas and Ambrose, and a magical dog, the spell is eventually broken, and their feelings are put to the test.

The Babes on Brooms duo are sweet and fun paranormal romances. I have really enjoyed both of them and look forward to getting into more of Vicki Lewis Thompson's books. The covers are great, colorful and sparkly, my only complaint is that I think Chick with a Charm should have had Daisy the dog on the cover instead of another black cat, but I know the artists don't always have a lot to go on. I highly recommend both of these if you're in the mood for a fun and feel good romance with a bit of magic thrown in. No vampires or werewolves here, just good old fashioned wand waving and potion mixing!
