Prudish Trinity Shilo is the assistant manager for Salem’s Wildlife Sanctuary, a wildlife reserve. Working together with new employee Paul, she senses he’s different from other men. She likes him and wonders if he likes her. When they are called in to help at Puffin Cover Rescue, what they discover is shocking. Someone has burned down the rescue building, almost like they want it closed down for good. Wounded and scared animals are everywhere. Trinity and Paul work on gathering up the animals and hosting an ice cream social to raise money to rebuild. Magic is unleashed and they must work together if they are to solve the mystery. Will magic bind these two souls together or will Paul’s PTSD destroy their budding romance?
Chocolate Raspberry Magic is a heartening paranormal romance I couldn’t put down. Tena Stetler has an honest, heartfelt love of all animals and in this story, she takes the reader inside the ins and outs of a wildfire rescue. She also sheds new light on PTSD and how it can affect a soldier long after they are pulled out of the battlefield. The descriptive narration delves the reader deep into the characters’ psyches and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The romance between Trinity and Paul is a slow-burning workplace romance. There’s plenty of obstacles for these two to work through but the suffering is worth it in the end. Magic can heal immense pain, and this is the main theme of Chocolate Raspberry Magic. That, and ice cream. Tena Stetler is a gifted writer, and her stories keep getting better and better. If you’re looking for an emotional story with plenty of heart, pick up Chocolate Raspberry Magic. If you’re feeling low, you’ll be lightened by this story. Highly recommend!
