The Best Kind of Magic
Amber Sand is not a witch. The Sand family magic 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 on 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 she starts having feelings for someone who is clearly matched with another, she starts to question her steadfast beliefs in destiny and fate. How can she, an honest peddler of true love, pursue a boy she knows full well isn't meant for her?
With a salty but sweet heroine, a quirky cast of mystical beings, and a heady dose of adventure, this YA magical realism novel will have you laughing out loud and rooting for Amber to find her happy ending.
The Sweetest Kind of Fate
Amber Sand, legendary matchmaker, couldn't be more surprised when her archnemesis, Ivy, asks for her help. Ivy's sister, Iris, is getting married, and Ivy wants to prove her sister is making a huge mistake. But as Amber looks into Iris's eyes, there doesn't seem to be a problem-Iris has clearly found her match.
It seems happily-ever-after is in the cards, but when Iris seeks out a dangerous, life-altering spell, it's up to Amber and Ivy to set aside their rivalry and save the day.
As Iris puts everything on the line for love, Amber continues to wrestle with her own romantic future. Her boyfriend, Charlie, is still destined for another, and no matter how hard she clings to him, fear over their inevitable breakup shakes her belief system to the core.
Because the Fates are never wrong-right?
