Chocolate Raspberry Magic by Tena Stetler is a must-read for every animal lover on vacation. The beautiful moments between heroine Trinity and her rescue parrot, Ashes, melted my heart.
The gentle heroine brings light and healing to everyone she meets – including love interest Paul. Paul is a veteran who works at the animal rescue and suffers from PTSD. The patience, acceptance, and accommodation shown by Trinity gave her a place on my favorite heroine’s list. Reading his growth with her tender guidance, was beautiful. With magic, animal interactions, a stunning seaside setting, and the best cabin ever, this book had everything a paranormal romance reader loves.
I highly recommend this book to the animal lover and the paranormal romance reader who is looking for a feel-good beach read.

Magic, animals, and romance! Who could want anything more? Tena Stetler did an amazing job of creating believable characters with real-life relatable problems. I could picture every scene in my mind thanks to her world-building abilities making her book that much more enjoyable! I can’t wait to read more from this author! This book was literally swoon worthy!!!

Sweet and educational, Chocolate Raspberry magic shows us an in-depth look into the world of rescue animals. For some reason I thought this was a mystery story but it is not. It is a slow build romance between Trinity and Paul. Trinity helps manage a wildlife sanctuary. Paul works as the “computer” guy for the wildlife sanctuary.
The first half of the book is detailed logistics in how to set up a fund raiser to bring in money for a devastated and burned down wildlife sanctuary. There are some really dry parts to this as we learn what forms are required for charity donations. The fun parts are how magic is incorporated into this story through a magical cabin and witches. I would like to state that my favourite thing in this book is the magical cabin. I wish I could have one like this!
The romance between Trinity and Paul is more of an old fashion courtship. It is nice to see this type of romance instead of the instalust whirlwinds. A more realistic pace with ups and downs, this romance is too sweet. The characters Trinity and Paul are perfect for each other. I like that they both are imperfect. This makes them more realistic and relate-able. Their passion to help animals is inspiring. I love animals and to see an author put so much into how to save and care for animals, it is heartwarming. This is feel good romance recommended to readers who love a little magic to help out in life.

Chocolate Raspberry Magic is my first read by author Tena Stetler. Despite the fact I felt as if I’d dropped in on the storyline without a guide, I loved the charm exhibited in this book. I’m a huge fan of both chocolate and raspberry and will definitely be finding a place that serves it together. This book, although part of a series, is a stand-along read. The characters are wonderful, and the wide cast of those who absolutely love taking care of animals of all kinds touched me in their zeal to do right by even the smallest rescue baby. I am an advocate for animal rescue, and it was fantastic reading about furry and feathered creatures. The addition of Ashes and Licorice made this reviewer tear up. I will certainly be looking at the previous books to learn more about the wonderful cast of people I became fond of in this latest book from Ms. Stetler. Not to be left out of the mix, we have the hero, Paul Thorp, and heroine, Trinity Shilo. They are a pair to be reckoned with and their romance was just topping on the ice cream cone. The magical element involving the cabin the rescuers used was unique and makes me wish I could utilize that same element in everyday life. If you haven’t read any of Tena’s books, don’t miss out on the joy I found in reading Chocolate Raspberry Magic.
