Summary
After an eye-opening congressional hearing, former corporate shark Jack Morgan redirects his ill-gotten gains toward charity work. However, his attempts to bring holiday cheer to a Bolivian village meet with one disaster after another: canceled flights, crumbling luggage, implacable customs officials. His plans disintegrate further when he runs into a sexy tourist with . . . wings?
As Jack’s guardian angel, Sarah Phimm has her work cut out for her. When his latest volunteer mission risks his life, she’s forced to reveal herself to him—but only in part. She can’t risk him knowing the truth. He’s everything her immortal heart desires, but can never have. She soon discovers that keeping him safe amidst death bridges and tumbling telephone poles is far easier than guarding her heart.

Review 
Midwinter Magic is the next book behind Charmed.
Sarah Phimm is Jack Morgan’s Guardian Angel since the day he is born. She has watched over him from the time he started breathing until now. Now, everything changed since Jack Morgan can see her.
I found this book to be weird. I just couldn’t get over how Sarah fell in love with someone she has known his whole life. She was placed as his guardian angel, with one mission to protect Jack. So, how did it go from that to falling in love with him? I dunno, it would be like a mother falling in love with a son, you get my drift?
However, the story was good, once you get halfway into it. This book wasn’t like Charmed, other than Sarah is from Nether-Netherland. There was lot of view from the writer’s perspective. In my opinion, maybe if we could have been on the level between the characters, it would have been a different feel. Some of the book, I felt like I was watching the characters instead of knowing their thoughts, and the depth of their being.
I loved the end of the book, it was very catching. If you love reading about angels you should totally give this a shot. The ending is creative.
Overall, I did enjoy it, and I did finish it. Of course, I will read more by Erica Ridley!

Summary
Prepare to be… Charmed!
Daisy le Fey is good at a lot of things. Math, science, accidentally turning people into pumpkins… Unfortunately, she’s not good at the one thing hiring managers look for when filling open positions for magical beings: Magic.
When she jeopardizes her apprenticeship by getting involved with sexy mortal Trevor Masterson, it’s one disaster too many. In order to stay out of purgatory, she’s going to have to ditch the human—and her one chance at true love.

Review
I truly enjoyed this light read and the writing so much I was laughing through a lot of the scenes. The story painted a very detailed picture with enough in the plot that will have you wanting to finish it when you first start to read. There was a lot happening: excitement, emotions, nail biting. I will always remember Daisy and Trevor. I usually don’t read Paranormal, but I think I will start embracing a new genre. I enjoy that easy it was to follow and filled with fantasy. All of the characters were enjoyable,  developed, fun, exciting, flawed, and some even sexy.
Daisy is  strong, cheerful, runs into trouble, and she is wingless tooth fairy. She doesn’t think she needs a relationship much less  romance. I guess you will just need to grab up this book to figure out what Daisy will due to to gain her wings and how her magical powers work, lets just say turning things into pumpkins is not what should happen.
This is an adult twist to fairy tales, and kinda like an all grown up Tinkerbell. If you love tooth fairies, then you will definitely love this book, go ahead and be Charmed, like I was.
