In Avening, a tiny town on the Pacific coast, 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 the woods at the outskirts of town just might be the door to another world. And, of course, there's Autumn, Avening's beloved resident witch. From what's known of its mythical founding, Avening has always been a haven for people who are a little bit different, a place where they can come to discover what makes them so special. When Autumn receives news that she's been promoted to a higher coven, she also learns she has to replace herself. But who in Avening is in tune enough with her own personal magic to take over the huge responsibility of town witch? Autumn has a list of thirteen women and men who just might have what it takes-but how can she get them to open their eyes to the magic in their lives?

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.
