Midsummer Magic by Julia Williams

When newly engaged Josie goes to visit her parents in Cornwall with her fiancé, and his best friend Ant and her best friend Diana, the idea was to begin making wedding plans, but when they meet a well-known TV hypnotist called Freddie Puck in a local pub and he invites them to take part in a hypnosis experiment to do with a local myth. Freddie claims that he can hypnotise a couple and make them fall in love on Midsummers Eve at the stepping stones just like it says in the myth.

The four agree to take part and what follows is a calamity of events that will test their relationships with each other and push boundaries of love and friendship. That could change their lives forever.

This is a great storyline and modern take on A Midsummer’s Night Dream that has some really great characters, the hypnosis theme is really good and sometimes the results are hilarious. It is a love triangle or a love circle spinning round so fast you have no idea who will end up with whom! The book keeps you guessing right up to the end. I just could not put this book down and before I knew it I was over half-way through!  So I will certainly be looking forward to reading more books by Julia Williams.
