#BookReview: The Sweetest Kind of Fate (Windy City Magic #2) by @CrystalCestari

About the Book:

GREAT. I’ve somehow found myself tangled up with a siren, a mermaid, and a homicidal wicked witch who once tried to strangle me to death. Way to go, Amber!

Amber Sand, legendary matchmaker, couldn’t be more surprised when her arch nemesis, Ivy, comes asking 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.

While Iris is willing to put 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?

Notes and Opinions: If you thought book one was good this one is going to knock your socks off! Amber Sands is at it again with a new adventure!  This was a wonderful follow up to book one! I couldn't put it down and I just kept reading until the end came and then I was sad because book three is so very far away. This was another well-paced story from Cestari about magic, romance, and more!  I loved all the characters and the world she has created.  The magic is so beautiful and scary at times and it blended well with the story of mermaids and more. I do hope that side characters get more book time in book three as I missed some of them. But other than that this one was a hit with this reader!  If you magic, witches, and more in a light-hearted story check this one out!
