Jane Boyle thought she’d met the man of her dreams. But it’s hard to live happily ever after when you realise your new mother-in-law is literally a witch, determined to steal the magical powers you didn’t even know you had. When Jane discovers that the man she fell in love with is a mere pawn in her mother-in-laws cunning plan, she flees. Now Jane is alone and on the run, hiding out in Manhattan. But Jane can’t hide forever…
One magical Park Avenue makeover later and Jane is ready to settle the score with her witch of a mother-in-law. In her new guise as Ella the Brazilian beauty, Jane meets the devilishly handsome André. The magical blood that teems through her veins draws her inexplicably towards this mysterious man. But is André all he seems? And can Jane make it into the witches’ den to overthrow the most evil of witches?
The sequel to the much famed 666 Park Avenue left me frustrated and dissatisfied. It lacked the pace and appeal of the first book and even though revelations were made it just didn’t thrill or keep me in suspense the way the firs one did. I found it repetitive and frustrating. I got annoyed reading about the “pale half moons of the nails” and the frequent recaps just added further to my frustration.
So disappointed am I that I’m not sure I want to delve into the next one just yet. However, for closure I may have to read it.
What was your favourite book when you were a teenager? I was reading Broadway books- I loved Grease!
My favourite has to be The a Village by The Sea by Anita Desai, although I remember reading a lot of Sweet Valley High books too.
