Madeline was content to live a quiet and peaceful life in the seaside town of Penbrook; however, life is never that simple. Sea Magic (Hidden Gems Book 1) by Heidi McIntyre follows her journey as she begins to uncover the tale of Maria through her special ability. As she starts to learn about the life of Maria and what she endured in the name of love, she finds herself on the cusp of a budding romance.
Sea Magic by Heidi McIntyre is a book that has your heart racing one moment and gives you a warm fuzzy sensation the next. Containing both heartfelt love and deeply wounding tragedy, Sea Magic will have you hanging onto every page. I loved the concept of Madeline’s psychometric ability and how it led to a story within a story. Considering how she worked in an antiques store, it made for a compelling idea. The world-building and pacing for this story were just right, with McIntyre slowly reeling you in as layer upon layer is added. Madeline made the perfect lead with her sweet yet strong personality, and every other character in the story was just as likable. Overall, Sea Magic was just as its name suggests; it was truly magical, and I enjoyed every bit of it. I was not expecting some of my emotions, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I would recommend this book, especially for lovers of supernatural stories.
