Courting Carolina - Janet Chapman Review: This book was definitely magical. This starts out with our heroine trying to escape her kidnappers by running up a mountain and Alec MacKeage saving her with the help of her "wolf". Long story short, she's princess Carolina Oceanus whose been on the run for two years from her fathers attempt to marry her off to a warrior from another century. Alec is hiding out in the woods creating the nature trails for Olivia's new Maine resort and is living miles from civilization. So he agrees to let "Jane Smith" hide out for a week or so... Needless to say, love strikes and Alec feels unworthy from the actions he took as a military spy for years. Very exciting little story with all the added humor components Ms Chapman adds. Probably not my favorite of the series, but being a biased Chapman fan still gets 4 stars.

What brought tears to my eyes was her personal wrap up letter at the end talking about her own family magic and her dad's sister, to quote: So if magic is not real, then explain a ninety-eight-year-old waking up one morning a poet! And she then shares the poems her aunt started writing about meeting family members in heaven. Very sweet
