#BookReview: The Best Kind of Magic (Windy City Magic #1) by @CrystalCestari #Giveaway @DisneyHyperion

 
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 was such a cute book! It has all the elements of a wonderful story! I've been pagan for over 29 years and although we Pagans and Wiccans don't have the magical powers that are in this book. It does give you some very good advice such as. Magic is a gift and not a right. As well as to follow your heart. There's more to life than fate. 








This one was a world wind of crazy laughs, snarky remarks, and some really good romance. It's one I will DEFINITELY be rereading in the future. I really fell in love with Amber and her family and I would love a prequel book about her mom. That sounds like a story I would really enjoy finding more about. The author did an amazing job with the magical aspects of this story and made it come to life in all the right ways. I wouldn't be surprised to go to Chicago and find this store and the characters from this book working there. It would seem totally plausible. 

This book although slightly shorter was full of so much story!! It felt much longer than it was. I can't wait to find out what book two is about and wither or not fate can change. I really want Amber and her friends to be happy and I can't wait to see how it all comes to pass!! 

This magical story is a wonderful blend of snarky attitude, laugh out loud fun, and some killer magical moments that will have you asking do you believe in fate?
