4/5 Review:Heat of the Moment by Lori Handeland





A spell that tore three sisters apart is broken four hundred years later, when the magic in their blood reunites them. Now, one of them will discover her gift-and reignite a love long thought lost...
Flame-haired Becca Carstairs was born to be a veterinarian. Since childhood, her affinity for animals has been special, and her healing touch nothing short of magic. But only Becca knows the truth-that she alone can hear the creatures' voices. She's always trusted her sixth sense...until a string of missing pets, an attempted murder, and a face from her past converge into one explosive mystery, with her at its center. Is haunted Owen McAllister, the boy who broke her heart ten years ago, related to the sinister crimes that have peaceful Three Harbors, Wisconsin, on its guard? Or is his reappearance part of the answer to questions that have troubled her all her life? As Becca delves into her strange heritage, she'll have to fight for her life...and the man she will always love.
In the second book of this spellbinding new series, New York Times bestselling author Lori Handeland delivers breath-taking danger, desire, and the dark heart of magic.

**********

I recommend it for anyone looking for a romantic read that involves witches, ghosts, wolves, and more supernatural beings.  I enjoyed reading this book and am glad that I was given the chance to continue the story of the Taggert sisters.  In this book we meet Becca, her affinity is with animals and healing.  She is the town’s veterinarian, and really good one to boot. She always thought that she was projecting her own thoughts as if it were animals speaking to her, imagine her surprise when she realizes that she can actually hear the thoughts of animals.  She also learns a lot more than she wanted to about her past and quite possible her future. One of the good things about what is happening to her is that the love of her life, Owen McAllister, is back from the Marines.  When she realizes that he is back she isn’t sure that it is a good thing, but she couldn’t fight her love and attraction for long.  Owen doesn’t realize that when he comes back home that he would find so much destruction in his old home, but should have expected it after 10 years of absence.  What he finds leads him back to Becca and a fight to keep her with him from those trying to kill her.  This book shouldn’t be read without reading book 1 in the Sisters of the Craft series, In the Air Tonight.  I can’t wait to find out what happens next for the sisters!
