Elly Blair gets a call about an emergency from her Grandma and returns from New York post haste to Mystic Falls, the town where she grew up only to find that the `emergency' is that her Grandma has decided to retire and Elly is to take over her café. Oh, and by the way, she also has to take over the job of using magic to spread a little health and happiness to her clientele. When a love spell goes awry, Elly ends up in trouble with Organization of Magic, and finds herself having to work out her own feelings about handsome Rory Covington. Is she really in falling for him, or is she just one of many women under her own misapplied love spell?

This is a really lovely book that reminds me of old screwball comedies. The pace is fast, and the dialogue has the rhythmic, banter-like tone of people who think and speak fast. The plot gets ever more unlikely, and more fun, as it goes on. Rory is a real keeper - a handsome, small town man who runs a farm and rescues old race horses. Then is there is the cocky, and surprisingly touchy-feely, Tom who is both the face of the interfering Organization of Magic but also someone who really wants Elly to overcome her problems. And most importantly of all is Elly, a clever young woman whose insecurities seem to come naturally from her life experiences but who makes real steps to overcome them through the course of the novel. The other characters also have real life in them and promise more for future novels in this series.

The book is consistently funny, sweet and romantic. The immediacy and strength of Rory and Elly's feelings is even integrated as a significant plot element - is this true love or just magic gone wrong? There is a lovely underlying philosophy of magic, too.

I'm 69% of the way through this book and struggling. The heroine is 28 going on 18. The story is thin and I am fast losing interest. The major mix-up by her friend that caused all the trouble in the first place was forgiven all too easily and brushed under the carpet. No-one is that forgiving!
It strikes me as the kind of book that people much younger than I would enjoy, the two main female leads having a teenage like mentality.
It is fast moving and at times I'm almost breathless at it's pace, but that still doesn't make it a good read. I have no criticism of the author's skill, because clearly she can write, but I just don't like the content, the story is weak and I'm afraid a bit silly.
I'm not a quitter with books and am forcing myself to see it out, but judging from some other reviews,it might be a waste of time.
The title suggests a series but sorry, I won't be reading any more.

Take; baking, running a cafe from scratch, small-town America, hunky guys, a grandmother who was a witch, an investigator from the National Organization of Magic, spells that go wrong and have to be set right. You get the idea. Screwy but fun. And you just know it's all going to turn out all right in the end, so just sit back, brew yourself something from bats' wings and newts' tails in the cauldron, put your black cat on your lap, and enjoy the harmless fun!

Although we are told Elly is 28 years old, she acts more like 18. I think this might be a suitable book for young adults. It is too drawn out and I just wanted the story to go on. If you do believe in it, even if the magical association could stop Elly from doing magic, how could they have the right to close down her cafe?

Don't quite remember why I chose this book but once started I couldn't put it down. I particularly liked the description of small town america. The story, although at times rather silly and containing too many repetitions, still succeeded to charm me with this down-to-earth girl inheriting a café with a twist, a magic twist. Good fun and feel good type of book.

I downloaded this book based on the reviews as people seemed to have enjoyed reading it. I am glad I didn't pay for it - it started off with promise but went nowhere fast; I kept reading in the hope that something was going to happen but nothing did except what you know ultimately will - a long boring road to reaching an inevitable conclusion. Sorry.

This is a light and fluffy girly book. It is the kind of book that is called zany and kooky. These are words that tell me I will find it irritatingly juvenile, which I did. My personal preferences aside, it is well written and amusing. There is an inherent sweetness and innocence about the characters that I xuspect is shared by the author. I didn't love the book but if they enjoy this kind of story, many others probably will.

previous reviewer describes book perfectly! Enjoyable read, perfect for a sunny day, a slice of cake and a coffee.

Likable characters, well thought out story, good pacing and a dash of magic and you have a winning story.
