Cards of Love :Queen of Wands by Suzanne Halliday {Blog Tour, Review & Excerpt}

Title: Cards of Love: Queen of Wands
Author: Suzanne Halliday
Genre: Romance (novella)
Release Date: October 26, 2018

Life is unpredictable and what the cards read for each of us changes like the weather forecast.
When David Allyn's daughter asked him to stop at a specialty store for her, he thought it would be a simple errand. Fate had other plans.
Clueless about mysticism, magic, and fantasy; he wasn't quite sure what to make of a store that carried tarot cards, cupid sprinkles, and mystical looking decor. The Queen of Wands store was only half as fascinating as it's owner, Micki Davies.
Gold Star widow Micki Davies is the breath of fresh air David didn't realize he needed. The quirky, free-spirited shop owner fascinates him like no one ever has.
Humor, instant attraction, and the kind of desire that leaves them both weak in the knees join together with destiny to weave a charming tale of love at every age.
Trusting his instinct, he picked up one of the Egyptian looking bottles and peered at the hand-letteredtag dangling from a ribbon tied around the neck.
“Horny Toad,” he murmured softly.
He felt the soft giggle before he heard it.
A mellifluous voice hypnotized his senses. “Horny Toad. Interesting choice. Complicated formula. Has to be brewed on the night of the new moon.”
David moved in slow motion, turning his head toward the voice. The hand that held the bottle froze in midair.
“I’d have figured you for this.” An elegant hand with dark red nails reached into the tower and extracted a squat bottle with a yellow top. “Cupid Crystals. Sprinkle in some coffee and see what happens!”
She was standing so close he could hear her breathing. Their eyes met, and the planet stopped spinning.
The hippie woman from earlier had bright azure blue eyes beneath real eyebrows—not that stuff women drew on.  She was smiling. Laugh lines suggested a woman who appreciated life.
Feeling tongue-tied, he was momentarily overcome by the unfamiliar reaction.
“It’s sugar-free.” She laughed.
He found his voice because the sound of hers was enough to make him agree to walk like an ape-man if it meant she’d keep talking.
“Vegan?” he asked with an arched brow.
She cracked up laughing. Hefelt like Judd Nelson at the end of TheBreakfast Clubwith a triumphant fist in the air.
“May I offer you a hand?” she asked. Her voice held a gentle, soothing softness. “I can take those things up to the register if you’d like.”
He blinked. That was it.
“It’s okay,” she assured him with a chuckle. “This is my store.”
“You’re the Queen of Wands?” he asked.
Her whole face brightened. The eyes regarding himhad sweeping lashes. Azure sparkles shot from her expression.
“Yes! That’s me.” She curtseyed like a lady-in-waiting, and he was charmed beyond belief. “I’m Michele Davies, Head Wand Mistress,” she said with her hand out in welcome. “Micki to my friends."

I couldn't put this book down.
Micki and David are both single parents over 40.
David has a Daddy to do list which leads him to Queen of Wands shop. Clueless of what he should really get, he bimbles to the love potions. And that's when he and Micki meet.
Is there an instant attraction, yes there is. And so their story begins.

Micki Davis has spent the last handful of years just concentrating on her two sons, her grandbabies, and her store, Queen of Wands. But, now, maybe its time to concentrate on Micki and what she wants. Never expecting to find what she was looking for in a bumbling, clearly out of place gentleman, who makes her tingle in all the right places. Since losing her husband 8 years ago, she hasn't even had an inkling of desire to find someone new. Until now. Can true love really happen twice?

David Allyn is a single dad, and is more than happy to wear that badge of honor. He's tried the dating game but, meh, no one has made him feel....well, anything really. Walking in to the Queen of Wands with a crumpled list of mystical supplies from his daughter , he didn't know what to expect. He certainly didn't expect HER. Right away, he knew she was special. The conversations flowed, and being together just felt natural. Could this be his happy ever after?

This story was sweet, entertaining and original. I would highly recommend it to romance fans everywhere.
