South of the Buttonwood Tree (by Heather Webber)

While I can handle some magical realism in a book, this particular one did not appeal to me. The story is a little too syrupy sweet and was too predictable. The magic focus was too intense instead of just being a nice addition to an interesting story. There was little depth and the similarities to the author’s previous book, Midnight at the Blackbird Café, were too much. Same verse same as the first…just a different setting and a few tweaks.

Thank you to NetGalley and Forge Books for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
