A Snicker of Magic

It’s about words. It’s about ice cream. It’s about magic. It’s about family. 
It’s about Felicity Juniper Pickle and Jonah Pickett.  It’s about Frannie Jo and Mama. It’s about Miss Lawson. It’s about the Brothers Threadbare.  It’s about Day Grissom, Aunt Cleo, Oliver and Charlie Sue.  It’s about Boone and Florentine and Jewell and Rosie and Elvis Phillips. It’s about Midnight Gulch and everything that happens after the Pickled Jalapeno pulls into town.
This story is comparable to making a big ‘ole ice cream sundae. Take your favorite kind of ice cream and start drizzling a variety of toppings over it…In A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd, take Felicity, Frannie Jo, and Mama then start drizzling other characters into their lives—Jonah, Cleo, and the rest of the residents of Midnight Gulch.  In the end, there is one delicious taste and satisfying ending.
Here's just a taste of A Snicker of Magic...“Believe. The letters were made of melted sunshine. They dripped down the window glass, warm and tingly against our faces. Believe is a powerful word to see and to say.  But that morning, I felt it. And feeling it was the best of all. I knew something wonderful was about to happen to me.  I didn’t know what, or why, or how. But I believed.”

Patch it
Mend it
Stitch it back together

Want another bite? “I bet there’s a snicker of magic on every street, in every old building, every broken heart, every word of a story.  Maybe it’s hidden away and you need to look harder for it. Or maybe the magic is right there, right in front of you, and all you have to do is believe.”
Yes, Yes Yes!
