It’s time for another LoveBookTours book review !!
This week I’ve been reading a fantasy mystery titled ‘Falling Into Magic’ by Elizabeth Pantley.
An accidental journey through a magic mirror. A portal to an enchanted land. A mysterious family she never knew she had. Hayden’s life is upended with the wonder of Destiny Falls. But it is tainted by the danger that brought her here and that threatens her newfound family. Can Hayden and her sassy sidekick remove the threat, so that she can begin her magical new life in this captivating world?
When Hayden was a child, she lost her cat. Adults told her the cat ran away, but she knew the truth. The mirror had taken her. She knew because the mirror gave her a glimpse of an alternate world and had nearly pulled her in, so she was certain the cat had suffered that fate.
Twenty years later Hayden discovers the secret of the mirror when she is thrust into it. She learns of an enchanted world she never knew existed, and a family she never knew she had.
But danger brought her here, and it followed her. Now, Hayden is on a mission to remove the threat, so that she can begin her magical, meaningful new life in this enchanted world.

I love a good fantasy, and this story really intrigued me from the get-go. I’m going to take a wild stab in the dark & say that the author is a Cat fan ;).
The story is unusual and interesting. A hidden world through a mirror, cats being able to communicate with their owner telepathically, a mystery with a witch. It’s a really enjoyable story of a young woman who’s not only discovering her unknown family, but taking in a whole new world too.
The story is well written and easy to follow. There were a couple of times in the book where it sort of jumps from Hayden’s story-telling in first person to a different narration following the cat and the witch which was a confusing jump at points but other than that, the story really pulled me in.
It’s exactly what you want with a mystery story, intrigue, wanting to keep reading to find out the who/what/why of it all. The author did a fantastic job creating this other world of ‘Destiny Falls’.
It’s been a while since I have actually sat reading a very large chunk of a book in one sitting. I really enjoyed this story and I can’t wait to see what other works Elizabeth releases.
You can get Falling Into Magic on Amazon.
Huge thanks to LoveBookTours for letting me read this in exchange for an honest review.
