Rory MacKenzie has been treated as a pariah for his entire life because his
ancestor lost the woman he loved and by sending her his greatest piece of work,
he cursed the village for all eternity. Victoria Cartwright has inherited the
key to a mysterious wardrobe that will only reveal its treasures for the woman
with the magic of her ancestors. When Vickie opens the wardrobe and finds a
beautifully carved unicorn, she and Rory find themselves thrown together by the
choices of their ancestors.
This is the final book in the Accidental

spells, Vickie seems to make rhyming wishes that come true in some hilarious
All in all, this was a great read and I'm looking forward to the
first Triplet Witch book Sex and the Psychic Witch.
