Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he’s never made a move. Every Saturday night, she gathers with her three best friends—Peach, Millie, and Stacy—and drinks the same margaritas while listening to the same old stories. Intent on shaking things up, she puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends . . . but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman who shows Olivia that there is more to her life than she ever dreamed.
As Liv’s latent magical powers come to the surface, she discovers that having an interesting life is maybe not all it’s cracked up to be. The dark side of someone else’s magic is taking over good people in town, and changing them into vessels of malevolence. Unwilling to cede her home to darkness, she battles the demons of her familial past and her magical present, with those she loves at her side . . . and in the cross fire. Can the most important things in life—friendship, love, magic, and waffles—get her through the worst that the universe can throw at her?
Liv’s had a crush on Tobias for ages, but he is passive aggressive with his feelings. He’s hot and cold, sending mixed messages all over the place. Finally after having enough and needing a change, Liv books a trip to Europe. But then a customer comes in and changes the life she knew, forever.
I can’t really explain my issues with this book without spoiling it for you all, sorry this is going to be the weirdest review I’ve ever wrote.
Long story short I was left feeling like someone should have known and helped Liv out long before the end of the book. I also wasn’t a fan of the maturity levels, their supposed to be in the their late 20′s but they acted like they were in their early teens. I feel like it would have done better as a YA, not an adult novel.
While the first few pages of A Little Night Magic were funny, it felt like something happened and the plot got all sorts of weird. I loved some of the dialogue and the quirkiness of the characters, but I was disappointed in the way the story turned.
