Lady In The Grove is the first book in the Magic And Mystery series by Jane Charles. This series continues the stories of the Drakos family at their home, Nightshade Manor. Orion Drakos is shocked when he discovers a young lady living in the sacred grove. Nina Jourdin has lived in the sacred grove for twenty years without detection. Shrouded in mystery, Nina can only glimpse the real world through the orchard between the sacred grove and Nightshade Manor.
Orion and Nina must uncover mysteries and battle intervening relatives and dryads while getting to know each other. I felt sorry for Nina; she seemed forgotten and lonely. Orion can be slow on the uptake, and he had to uncover many hidden truths. I enjoyed both Orion and Nina’s characters. The plot was easy to read and flowed well. This was a quick, fun read full of magic, sparkle, and romance!
