When aromatherapist Sukie starts using her cottage garden to provide raw ingredients for her products, she thinks she's hit on a good way of saving money while offering her clients a way of de-stressing and relaxation.

Love potions is so much fun, it really was a pleasure to read. I loved the entire feel of the book, a small town with that quintessential gossipy and close knit feeling. I love romance novels that are set in a small village they are always funny. what I really liked about Love Potions was how layered it was, there are so many different relationships to sink your teeth into.
The story is based on Sukie an aromatherapist and she has lost her entire stock of oils after her best friend gives them to their friend during a very lively hen night dressed as fairies. So disaster has struck and help comes in the form of dreamy Derry who is her lodger's boyfriend, oh yes drama ladies and gentlemen. Sukie is talented sweet and armed with her aunt's tapestries she is going to make magic happen. From creating a budding friendship between one of the lovely barmen and the dance teacher of the girls dance group she is larger than life. My favourite supporting character was Joss with her la husband that literally sucked the life from her I was just completely enthralled with her storyline.
My favourite thing about this book was how charming it all was, and how each person was affected by the special potions Sukie made.
