I’ve kinda gotten hooked on Juliet Madison’s ‘ro-magic’ (romance and magic) novellas – they’re like something I have to read regularly to get my reading fix. Starstruck in Seattle is a beautiful story that you will want to read in one sitting.

The plot is quite simple – Anna is an actress on a medical drama in Seattle (no, not the one you’re thinking of) and she’s written to Lulu the Love Angel asking for romantic help. Apparently her soul mate’s name begins with the letter K and Anna’s wondering if she should make a move on Karl, the lead actor before filming finishes. After a close on-screen encounter, Anna and Karl decide to go on a date, but that’s where Lulu needs to intervene… Lulu isn’t a fully-fledged angel yet and she’s got to work quickly to ensure Anna doesn’t go wrong with Karl…

This novella was sweet and funny. Some of my favourite moments came when Lulu had to magically intervene to keep Anna and Karl apart, while swearing angelically! Madison has a talent for slapstick here and I could easily picture this as a great romantic comedy movie. (Their first date would get the biggest laughs). There’s also some sweet moments between Anna and her friend Charlie and the ending is very cute and Seattle-like. I would have liked to have known a bit more about Anna and her dispute with her actress sister, but perhaps that’s a story for another day…

This is a book that can be easily read after work or on a daily commute. I’d highly recommend it as a story to brighten your day. Madison has a natural talent when it comes to romance with a touch of magic and I’ll certainly be reading more of her stories!
