That Touch of Magic by Lucy March | Book Review

This book was narrated by Amanda Ronconi and she does a great job of capturing that snarky undertone that runs through all of Lani Diane Rich’s books (Lucy March is Lani).

I was looking forward to this book because I like the author and I liked the first Nodaway Falls book. This one is a great follow up to A Little Night Magic, and the world is consistent with a magic that seems everyday.

Normally, I have no reservations about giving 5 stars to Lani’s work, and a lot of people will do it, but I have to say I was hoping that the other guy would turn out to be the love of her life. It’s apparent pretty quickly who is The Guy, but I couldn’t like him.

By Lucy March

Lucy March is a pen name of Lanie Diane Rich. Here’s the bio from Amazon.

I’m Lani, and I’m a writer, a teacher, and a mom. I live in Syracuse, NY with my husband and two daughters. My favorite color is yellow, and I have a thing for polka dots that borders on the ridiculous.

I wrote my first book, “Time Off For Good Behavior” during NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month, fifty thousand words in the thirty days of November – and was the first previously-unpublished author to publish a NaNoWriMo manuscript. It’s a very specific niche, but it’s all mine. “Time Off” won the Rita Award for Best First Book, and I went on to publish another seven solo novels and one collaboration. So, apparently, it wasn’t a fluke. I find that comforting.

At the moment, I’m writing magical romance novels as Lucy March. I’m still Lani on the inside; it’s a publishing thing. If you’d like to learn more about what I’m doing now, visit,, or And thank you!



It’s a fun romance and the magic is important to the story. I enjoyed listening to the narration, and the overall story was great. One of the things I like about romance is the possibility of redemption in any situation. If you enjoy a fun romance with a lot of redemption, you’ll like this one.
