Review: Secondhand Charm by Julie Berry

In a secluded village, magic sparkles on the edges of the forest. There, a young girl named Evie possesses unusually strong powers as a healer. A gypsy’s charms—no more than trinkets when worn by others—are remarkably potent when Evie ties them around her neck. Her talents, and charms, have not escaped the notice of the shy stonemason’s apprentice. But Evie wants more than a quiet village and the boy next-door. When the young king’s carriage arrives one day, and his footman has fallen ill, Evie might just get her chance after all . . .

Berry’s debut novel garnered glowing reviews and strong sales—and now she’s done it again with a beautifully woven tale to keep all readers, young and old, absolutely charmed.

Kudos to Julie Berry for creating an original stand alone book. I love to finish a book and feel satisfied with the ending. I enjoy sequels but there is just something rewarding about finishing a book without being left wanting and waiting for something more.

I loved Julie’s first novel The Amaranth Enchantment and was excited to learn she had a new book coming out. Secondhand Charm did not disappoint. It was clean and creative. Once again Julie proved her ability to write an engaging, imaginative story that had twists and turns I didn’t see coming.

Romance, mystery and adventure make this a book for readers of all ages.
