Saturday Pages: See Me by Wendy Higgins!!

Starting this week's Saturday Pages I have a new release for this week that I devoured on release day! It was even better since it was released on St Patrick's Day! Thank you Wendy Higgins for writing this sweet book to help us with the wait till Sweet Reckoning!

See MeSee Me by Wendy Higgins

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I first heard about this story that Wendy Higgins had written, I was quite excited to read it, cause I love anything Ireland and so when she decided to shelve it for a while, I was quite bummed.

Imagine my surprise and happiness when she decided to finally go ahead and self-publish, on St Patrick's Day no less! I got it on my Kindle app as soon as I got a spare moment at work after midnight on the 17th, and started it right then!

See Me can be described as a contemporary romance with a healthy dose of fantasy, maybe magical realism? It is the story of a girl and a boy falling in love in the Emerald Isle, with the added bonus of magic, faeries and the fact that the boy is a Leprechaun!

Robyn has been bethroted to boy in Ireland since she can remember, and despite being a very modern girl she always understood it as her duty. Her family is one of those few given magic by the Fae and there's a lot of responsability that comes with it. She had always allowed herself some romantic dreams, imagining how McKale would be. So when she's told on her flight to Ireland that he's a Leprechaun... well, to say she's got a bad shock is to put it midly. We all imagine tiny men dressed in green that live at the end of the rainbow, and that's image that makes Robyn panic.

But as it happens McKale is not a 3 foot guy but a slightly taller than average human size, which in a funny lil twist is quite frowned upon on the Leprechaun society, so McKale has been quite unhappy with his size all his life. Apparently not even the jolly green men are beyond prejudices.

The romance is very sweet, adorable and cute! It started a bit on the wrong foot and soon enough we learn there's someone else that won't be playing fair for McKale's attention.

I really liked Robyn and Cassandra's interactions, a great sisters relationship, with plenty of banter and loads of support and friendship. And in fact, all the Manson's family interactions are fantastic. The parents are loving and a great example for Robyn to aspire to, and despite the great relationship they have with their parents, the girl still act like teenagers and sneak out on occasion.

I went through the book super fast, it was so much fun, even the moments when the FFG (you'll know what I mean if you read the book) start meddling and threatening Robyn & McKale. There are plenty of heartfelt moments, with fun one, swoony ones and just plain adorable ones!

Very well deserved 4 stars to this one!
