Sugar Maple, Vermont, knitting store owner Chloe Hobbs couldn't be happier about her pregnancy. But with the arrival of the town's newest resident, things are about to get a lot more magical. Baby Laria is six pounds, eleven ounces of perfect, and Chloe and Luke are over the moon. But when they learn that Laria takes after her mom in the sorcery department, it becomes clear that their baby might have more power than even a pro like Chloe can handle...

My Review:
Can I say called it?? I knew from jump we started to hear from Meghan. I knew something was up, be that as it may, I will say this book as way better than the second. From Meghan described her 'perfect' boyfriend I knew she was in deep trouble he was way too perfect for my taste. Maybe I'm too close to cops but I spotted the con before she even knew what was up.  Jesus, this book in particular was so much better; than the last two book.  I love Chloe because she is a yarn~addict and she waxes poetic about awesome yarn; she owns her own shop that makes me love her even more.

Much like the first two books, our lead Chloe's head is still placed far up her backside, even though she is only half human, she keeps making dumb decisions, personally I believe she really shouldn't be in control of the town. She constantly does dumb shyt making the worst decisions, especially after people tell her not to;  that puts the town in danger then is surprised when it blows up in her face. I can't understand why each book she constantly keeps coming back to the same lesson and each time she has to re~learn it another way.  I can't believe she keeps doing these things.

Chloe is obsessed with having a real family (read human/normal) & wants to include Luke's family in with hers.  Except as a sorceress in training and a pregnant one to boot her magic is all over the place, including sending te dishes on a dance before dinner. Having humans around would be disaster, but her black friday sale is where her future mother in law comes waltzing in.  Now she has to keep her magic under control, have a great sale, keep Elspeth from turning the humans into pets & not alienate her new mother in law.

I enjoy the baby and her story, I'm sure she (the author)will be continuing the series with the child at some point.  This rendition of the series ended pretty well but I get the feeling that their might be more in the future.  It's a pretty good culmination to the series. I liked her troll friend Elspeth, & the family that she forms.  I even loved her foolish belief in human families, yeah the Cosby's are an idyllic family but not real.

It's good, a light quick read that doesn't take too much time. Enjoy!
