Finally one night Tori actually hears Connor speaking to her. Once she realizes he is in the mirror the fun begins. He than is given one month to get her to love him with her whole heart or he must return to the mirror for all eternity.
From a horrible blind date to a confrontation with a sea witch this story has love and magic for all to enjoy.
It was nice to see the development of each of the two characters. Will Connor learn his lesson and come to his understanding about love and what it really means to have it and give it freely. Can Tori grow as well? Will she realize what it means to love and be loved?
Even being heartbroken over her ex-boyfriend Tori is still a feisty and brave woman and Connor is a great man. The author endears Connor to the reader and has you cheering him on in his battle to win Tori.
The Man In The Mirror by Jo Barrett is a sweet story about finding and keeping true love. It is a quick read that warms your heart. I truly enjoyed the flow of this book it never seemed rushed along at all. I defiantly will be looking for more from this author.
My only problem with this story was that it was over so soon. I fell into their world and enjoyed myself so much that I hated to see it end.
