Title: A Cure for Spring Fever

Author: Barbara Robinson

Genre: Paranormal Romance


Book Blurb:


For centuries, Gamekeepers have used their magical abilities to create a buffer between the creatures who dwell in the enchanted forest and the sleepy coastal town that sits in its shadow. When Gamekeeper Stan Ross’s magic begins to fail, he must find out what went wrong, then fix it before the two worlds collide. His hit or miss magic has already led to a few close calls so he journeys to the Sacred Isle searching for answers and advice. Finding a cure proves elusive—until Stan encounters a kitchen witch who captivates him body and soul. Lynnette Peters is healing from her own wounds, however, and it isn’t clear whether she’s ready to open herself to the possibility—or the peril—of love.


My Review:


Feeling disconnected from his magic, Gamekeeper Stan travels to the Sacred Isle. He shares a soul-searing night with a woman, but can he convince her their love is real? A Cure for Spring Fever is the perfect book to read this spring because for all of us romantics, hope springs eternal. The story's narration connects the reader to the characters. The world-building is pure magic. The romance is emotional with a dash of paranormal fun. The dialogue is at times funny, other times heartfelt, but really captures the feeling of what is happening.


Let's start with the characters. Both Stan and Lynnette are relatable characters. Sure, they have magical abilities, but take that away and they are just like you and me. I connected with both on so many levels. Lynnette's dating failures had me laughing. Stan's work problems are cause for alarm. Their meet cute is hilarious and quite magical. But what makes them steal each scene they're in is their fragility. Fear roots them to the spot. But they must overcome their fears to find what their heart desires.


The world-building is not only descriptive but believable. Barbara Robinson takes her world and makes it her own. It was fun to escape in her universe for a while. I especially adore the Sacred Isle.


If you're looking for a paranormal romance with whimsical characters and a romance that's pure magic, read this book.
