I would give this book a 5 for review.
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.
I thought this so cute magic book. I adored both the characters and the world building were so well done. I loved amber as character and also her struggles with life and her match making powers. I love the cast of magic creatures that we met and how they were represented in the world. I usually am not a fan of the school magic books but this one was done so well. I also loved seeing the various romance matches and the fall out from them in the book. The book kept me reading for all the leads and it was so well done. It did not suffer from any world building issues and Just want to live in this world. I highly rec. this book if you enjoy witch novels.
