  1. Magic anyone????? 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Aug 2012

    READ this book! We all need a break from our everyday, sometimes, mundane lives...This is a fun story and takes you away with the characters on a week long vacation. At first I thought, leave the little brat son home, but then I fell in love with the obnoxious little guy!! Don't miss this one!

  2. A wonderful cozy. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Nov 2011

    That Carrington Magic is fun, heart-warming, and the main characters engaging. This story is the perfect 'romp in the Rockies Resort' book. Jami and Grant get scammed into helping an online dating business, owned by Grant's brother and Jami's best friend, survive by going on a 'Cupid Key' week long vacation date...complete with photo shoots.
    Jami has been hurt by love and is twice-bitten shy with a full hair-trigger Irish temper, while Grant is a 'committed to no one for life' bachelor. Toby, Jami's son, is loveable yet also exasperating as only a six-year-old can be. The magic of Cupid flows strong through all the picturesque hiking, swimming, insecurities, and fears. The secondary characters are full and unique.
    If you like a good cozy...don't miss this one.

  3. My Kind of Magic! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Nov 2011

    Sparks fly in That Carrington Magic where the innermost thoughts of two confirmed singles, Jami Rhodes and Grant Carrington conflict and contrast. Jami, a self-sufficient businessperson, declared that her passion for all men was snuffed by her unfaithful ex-husband, the father of her precious six-year-old Toby while Grant basked in the freedom of bachelorhood with no regrets.
    Grant’s brother, Ty and sister-in-law, Sierra, pooled their finances to start an online dating service called Cupid Key, but the new business was failing. Sierra called upon her best friend Jami for help to pose as a single who had found her Mr. Right. At the same time, Ty and his brother conspired to make Grant out to be Jami’s love interest. Both Grant and Jami found themselves unenthusiastic recruits for the promotional photo campaign. Toby, Jami’s son, further compounded the issue by insisting he attend the weeklong photo shoot mock vacation with his mother in the gorgeous Frost Lake Lodge amidst the Rocky Mountains.
    At the heart of the story is the real cupid key that has been rumored to possess some sort of love magic. Here is an excerpt:
    Grant swallowed a groan as the object fell free from the paper and dropped into his palm. The infamous Cupid Charm! Blood pressure rising, he unfolded a square of paper to read the cryptic note: One falls—we all fall. It’s your turn. Your brother, Ty.
    “What’s that?” Toby asked, peering at Grant’s clutched hand.
    “It’s a Cupid pin. An heirloom brooch, belonging to my grandmother.” Grant opened his hand, displaying a gold key charm carved in exquisite detail of the cherub Cupid, complete with the god’s miniature arrow poised to zing a heart. “We call it the Cupid key.”
    “It’s lovely,” Jami exclaimed, gazing down at the golden brooch in his palm.
    “Apparently, it has its appeal,” he mumbled back. Hmm, did he detect a trace of a smile on Cupid’s face he’d never seen before? Of course not. He shook away such a silly thought.

    That Carrington Magic seethes with sensual attraction throughout as Jami and Grant develop feelings for one another and push them away. All the while, Toby runs interference and discovers new conflicting feelings of his own.
    As always, Karen Rigley delivers an experience that makes reading worthwhile. I invite you to enjoy a copy. I’m happy that I did!

  4. Carrington Magic is a must read 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Nov 2011

    Carrington Magic is a delightful story involving a single mom & her adorable, mischievous son & a unattached, handsome man.
    The story is full of romance, emotions and fun.
    It held my interest from the beginning to the end. Karen Rigley has a way with words that one can visualize the characters & actions.

  5. That Carrington Magic - Thank you Karen 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Nov 2011

    Find yourself a quiet spot and allow yourself plenty of time because I sincerely doubt you will want to set this story aside until you have finished. If you have been fortunate enough to read any of Karen Rigley's other works, you will recognize her incredible skills. From the beginning she grabs your attention and you soon will feel that you personally know her characters and will connect emotionally as the incredible detail in the story unfolds. I will be very surprised if you don't finish the book like I did; Not wanting to wait for the next one?

  6. A make- the-reader-happy story: romantic and emotional 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Nov 2011

    That Carrington Magic blends romance and emotional content perfectly.

    I couldn't stop reading when I fell in love with the little boy, Toby, who finds a much needed father in the hero, Grant. Of course, independent and intelligent mom makes out well, too.

    Jami and Grant fall in love, but it is Toby I rooted for throughout. He is drawn with a careful pen, and his vulnerability makes for a very memorable character.

    I always like a story that makes me cry. Karen Rigley really delivers with this story. Cute, funny, heartwarming and very, very romantic!

  7. Carrington Magic 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Nov 2011

    Rigley's "Carrington" debut is a quick, cute read with lots of character and heart. Single mom Jami is instantly relatable and sympathetic with her all work and no play life. So when her BFF comes through with a vacation, she takes it (after a lot of protesting). Too bad she takes her son,Toby, with her, who I found a little distracting. The dynamic that unfolds between Jami and hero Grant kept me turning pages late into the night.

  8. That Carrington Magic Delivers 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Oct 2011

    How often have you wanted to turn the pages of a book that not only intrigues and entertains, but that delivers a story you can share with a friend, sister, or daughter and not blush at the inappropriate language and gratuitous sex it contains? That Carrington Magic delivers that promise along with a true romance that makes your heart blush with tenderness instead.
    I found myself falling in love with Grant Carrington, a hero who is passionate about life, family and all that matters to Jami Rhodes. Although scarred by love in the past, he doesn’t hesitate to reach out to Jami’s son, Toby, a boy who needs both his mentoring and male bonding. Still, Grant’s determined to remain Mr. Bachelor, not Mr. Right.

    Although Grant is a business consultant and Jami owns a struggling business that desperately needs his services, she is drawn to the man, not his acumen. And that breaks all her rules. Rules that have closed her heart to any man and left room in her life only for her son; rules that would have prevented her from transforming into a Cinderella beauty, or to fall under Cupid’s spell. Focused on following those self-appointed rules, Jami doesn’t realize Grant has captured her heart, restored her sense of trust and made her believe in magic. The magic of love, the Cupidkey, and, of course, the Carringtons.

  9. The scarred bachelor and the betrayed divorced mom… 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Oct 2011

    The scarred bachelor and the betrayed divorced mom…

    Sound familiar? I’ve read many stories with such characters, but this one is especially delightful and different as these two characters take a publicity vacation together at Frost Lake for Cupidkey, a new matchmaking service to help couples find love.

    This novel is dotted with witty dialogue and scenes of breathtaking romance. You’ll love Toby, the kind of son I enjoy reading about. He likes the tough bachelor who’s along for the trip. Toby is full of mischief, yet can be sweet and endearing. His interaction with the hero tugs on your heart strings. You know the fatherless boy and the childless hero need each other. The balance of memorable secondary characters like the toxic Raven adds excitement and depth to this tale of two people who’ve been terribly hurt and are trying to find happiness. Through the many layers, their love starts to grow, giving the reader a chance to get to know their fears and care about them.

    The author treats the reader to some clever lines. The hero at one point answers this way as he makes a toast with the heroine: “To keeping Toby away from the hot tub...” He paused, lips curling to a lazy grin. “And out of hot water...”

    Another original line during a romantic moment had me going back to read it several times: Grant groaned, wrapping around Jami to press her so close she could barely breath. As if she cared about breathing, swept into his fierce embrace and lost in the magic of his kiss. Breathing meant she was earthbound, but this exquisite moment felt like heaven.
    This prose is pretty heavenly stuff. You’ll have to read through to the ending to see how this heart-warming story unfolds. Bravo to this author!
