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?

Guest Post: Amber's Top 5 Beliefs on Love
(written in her own voice)

1. Everyone Deserves Love – no matter if you’re an angel from on high or a bottom-feeding troll, there’s enough love in this world for everyone. Even psychopaths can find like-minded soul to share in walk on the beach and plans for world domination.

2. Love is Insane – love is great, but isn’t it also kind of the worst sometimes? Think about it. Love makes us do crazy, illogical things, hormones sending us over the edge of reason. But the end result is pretty great, so I guess the often heart-wrenching journey is worth it.

3. There’s no straight path to happily ever after – trust me when I say I know how frustrating it can be finding love. As a matchmaker, everyday I have people coming to me wanting answers, and while I can provide a final destination, I don’t have the road map to the end. But it’s important to keep going, because…

4. Love is real – I know it, because I see it everyday! You can trust me, because I am a certified Cynical Person, and even I know love exists.

5. Dessert is always the answer – while you’re waiting for The One to reveal his/herself, dessert is always there to comfort you. It’s the lover who will never leave you nor judge you, and withstands the test of time.

The Best Kind of Magic
(Windy City Magic #1)

YA Paranormal, Fantasy
Hardcover & ebook, 336 Pages
May 16th 2017 by Disney-Hyperion


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.
