The matchmaking (more like mischief-making) antics of Dorcas and Ambrose continue in this second installment of the Hexed series. Once again, magic is needed to give human amours a push, including the Lowells’s special potion-enhanced wine and a Loch Ness-like plesiosaur dwelling in the local lake. It’s a little too predictable that their interference will cause a traveling beauty to see the local nerd as being special or that she’ll tumble into bed with him on the first date. Surely modern women are made of sterner stuff, magic or no. It’s a little irritating to see a grown woman getting bowled over by parlor tricks, even if the magic appears inexplicable to ordinary viewers. But at least this lady doesn’t simply throw it all up to nestle down in small-town bliss with her new hubby. That’s often a staple of the romantic genre—the big-city gal who kicks over her cosmopolitan life to go down home with the contented rural lad. Are big cities so gray, lifeless and soul destroying as all that? Aren’t they perhaps vibrant, exciting, eye opening and filled with thrilling things to do after the sun goes down? How many people are really so keen to settle in a town where the carpets roll up after six and the most exciting things to see during the day are a free-standing phallic rockpile and the boring statue of the wife of the town’s founder? However, this novel avoids that trite ending to give us a lady who will travel the world seeking out exotic wonders. In all likelihood that means she won’t be making an appearance in the sequel but points must be given for that bit of originality.
