Synopsis:

For once, Maggie McKendrick just wants to control her own life. Her overbearing Hollywood director father has it all planned out for her: UCLA, law school, then working as an entertainment lawyer, preferably for him. But Maggie has other, more creative-spirit friendly, plans. Namely, Thrippletons School of Fashion and Design in England, and then onto becoming a designer, preferably a wildly successful one. The big snag in her plan? Getting it past her dad.
A movie shoot takes the family to the Scottish Highlands for the summer, and closer to Maggie’s dream school. While there, she runs into the charming Preston Browne. Maggie is intrigued and decides to bend her no guys rule—instituted after her ex used her to get close to her dad. Forced to keep secrets from Preston in order to protect the future plans she’s made, Maggie finds herself falling for the tall Brit. And for once in her life she knows that he’s interested in her, not her Hollywood connections. When Maggie’s father blackmails her into dating his lead actor, she isn’t left with a choice. The biggest problem isn’t having to date hunky, mega-hottie, Ben Chambers. No, it’s praying she doesn’t lose Preston in the process.
Excelling at her dream school, Maggie’s personal life is a tangled mess. She needs to decide if living a lie is worth losing Preston or chance going against her father and facing his wrath. When the tabloids expose the truth of her fake relationship with Ben, Maggie’s world is thrown into a tailspin. Ultimately, Maggie must find the courage to take risks and forge ahead on her own path. 

 Mama Says:
Much like the first book, Everyday Magic is a sweet, humorous romance with a bit of wisdom to bestow upon young potential lovers.  I enjoyed this light-hearted look at two people trying to figure out who they are separately as well as together.  If you’re looking for actual magic though, look elsewhere as this is strictly in the real world.  I like to unwind with an easy to read contemporary once in a while, and this book certainly fits that bill.  Sometimes I get so bogged down with details in an epic fantasy or paranormal series, that it’s nice to read something that focuses more on a couple of characters and their relationships of all stripes.  There isn’t as much need for world building and thus you can really draw your audience into the drama.  This is also a clean read so you can feel good about your twelve year old niece getting ahold of it.
