Uncaged Review: Chocolate Raspberry Magic by Tena Stetler

Chocolate Raspberry Magic
Tena Stetler
Fantasy Short Romance

Prim and proper Trinity Shilo is the assistant manager for Salem’s Wildlife Sanctuary. She hasn’t had much luck in the boyfriend department, but the new employee Paul is different. Deep and brooding she sees something special hidden below the surface. Besides she has secrets of her own. Paul Thorp is a wounded Special Forces veteran now working in security and computer support. He’s fought hard to keep his demons in check and for the first time feels he is ready for a real relationship. When a fire breaks out at Puffin Cove Rescue they are called in to help with the recovery and ice cream social fundraiser. Sometimes things are not what they seem, and neither are people. When magic is unleashed will what they learn bring them closer together or push them apart?

Uncaged Review: Very seldom do I find a shorter
novella style story to be such a complete and fun
story. This story centers around the animal rescue
of Puffin Cove where they reach out after a disastrous
fire breaks out and Salem and Lobster Cove
answer the call to help. After securing the animals
and assessing the damage, the ladies whom we
have met in previous books, Hidden Gypsy Magic
and A Witch’s Journey, decide that a fundraiser
is due. And if animal rescue isn’t enough, there
is a wonderful romance brewing between Trinity
and Paul. Paul is a veteran, who has episodes of
PTSD, but is making great progress at the Salem
Rescue. When they are all called out to help, they
find a way to pick up the pieces, and help out
while finding their love for each other.

Personally, I am a volunteer member of a rescue,
and when you toss in the magic of the cabin, and
the people with the animals, with a nice love
story, I’m all in. The magic in this book is subtle
and although not the focus and overbearing, but
nicely tied in to make it believable and it was fun
to come back to the characters (and the cabin)
from previous books. It felt like a warm familiar
blanket on a cold day. And let’s not forget Misfit,
Ashes and Licorice. Reviewed by Cyrene
