After her sister's marriage, Penelope goes with her governess to Ireland where she will receive extra tuition in magic. There she meets Lady Keating and her charismatic son Niall. Her association with the Keating family unknowingly lands Penelope in the midst of a plot to harm Queen Victoria. Will she discover the truth before it's too late?
What I thought: Doyle did not disappoint with this follow-up to Bewitching Season. Penelope's story was just as engrossing. I liked that we got to see a little more of the inner workings of Niall's mind than we did of Loch's in the first book. The chemistry between Penelope and Niall is thrilling.
