Myth and Magic by Mae Clair is a novel with an interesting mystery. Veronica Kent is the manager of Stone Willow Lodge. They run retreats for executives. Lately people have been hearing a lady crying, seeing strange apparitions, a dead dog (cut open) in a suite, a leg in a fireplace, and much more. What is going on? Reservations are being canceled, so Breckwood Industries (who owns the lodge) decides to bring in an investigator. They decide to bring in their brother, Caithelden Lairen (he changed his last name). Caith left the area when he was eighteen and has not returned. Caith is troubled by events from his childhood. The Breckwood boys (Merlin, Aren, Galen, and Caithelden) and Veronica grew up together along with Derrick Trask. Derrick and Caith were kidnapped one day and held for ransom (Caith’s father is very rich). Unfortunately, Derrick ended up getting killed trying to save Caith. Caith has not spoken with his father in twelve years because he did not keep his promise.
Before Caith left for college, Veronica and Caith had a magical night by the lake. But several weeks later he wrote Veronica a letter breaking her heart. Now the two of them are going to be working together at the lodge to figure out who is sabotaging it. Do Veronica and Caith still have feelings for each other? Caith brings his son, Derrick with him. Derrick is thrilled be surrounded by his family and to finally meet his grandfather. Can Caith overcome his past so he can have a future? Who is sabotaging the lodge and why?
Myth and Magic is a good mystery, but it contains a lot of romance (and sex scenes). Myth and Magic is just not what I expected from the original description. I thought it was more of a paranormal mystery, and it turned out to be a mystery romance book. I give Myth and Magic 3 out of 5 stars. The mystery was complex and involved an unexpected character.
I received a complimentary copy of Myth and Magic from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The review and opinions expressed are my own.
