May 16th 2017
Find it on Goodreads
Amber Sand is not a witch. The Sand family Wicca gene somehow leapfrogged over her. But she did get one highly specific magical talent: she can see true love. As a matchmaker, Amber's pretty far down the sorcery food chain (even birthday party magicians rank higher), but after five seconds of eye contact, she can envision anyone's soul mate.

Amber works at her mother's magic shop--Windy City Magic--in downtown Chicago, and she's confident she's seen every kind of happy ending there is: except for one--her own. (The Fates are tricky jerks that way.) So when Charlie Blitzman, the mayor's son and most-desired boy in school, comes to her for help finding his father's missing girlfriend, she's distressed to find herself falling for him. Because while she can't see her own match, she can see his--and it's not Amber. How can she, an honest peddler of true love, pursue a boy she knows full well isn't her match?

The Best Kind of Magic is set in urban Chicago and will appeal to readers who long for magic in the real world. With a sharp-witted and sassy heroine, a quirky cast of mystical beings, and a heady dose of adventure, this novel will have you laughing out loud and questioning your belief in happy endings.

This sounds adorable. I haven't read anything with this kind of plot before! And it has everything I like in it - witches, magic, problems to overcome, wit, a sassy heroine - I mean, what's not to like? I can just imagine Amber's predicament and how she must be feeling - and I am extremely curious as to how things are going to turn out. I'm hoping this is going to be a really fun and cute book and I can't wait to read it! I can't decide whether I like the cover or not (kind of?) but I'll be reading it no matter what - now to wait for May!

What are you waiting on this week?
