In the picturesque Pacific coast town of Avening, it's hard not to believe in magic. This is a town where the shoes in the window always fit, where you can buy a love potion at the corner shop, and where local lore seamlessly mixes with the supernatural. And then there's Autumn, Avening's most beloved resident, shopkeeper, and guardian of the Jaen sisterhood. When she receives word she's been promoted within the order, Autumn must undertake the task of selecting her own replacement. But who in Avening is magical enough to take Autumn's place?--Publisher's description

More sci-fi than I expected, this was an interesting book you can plow through in a long weekend. Whimsical, witchy and sweet. To the tune of Harry Potter and other stories with magic, a harem of witch-like ladies with magical powers. Fortunately, each of the female characters are well-developed and their stories, despite the magic-y stuff are interesting and kept my interest. A good, quick read, especially if you are a fan of Hermione Granger.

Fantastic book! If you like strong female characters, magic, and small town setting you might like this book.

Didn't grab me - interesting premise but I didn't warm up to the characters much for some reason.

Magical. In the style of Sarah Addison Allen (Garden Spells). Loved it.

Looks like it could be the first of a series.
