Publisher's Summary

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 listeners 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.

What the Critics Say

"Jeannie Tirado flawlessly narrates this urban fantasy. The story features visits to Chicago's diverse neighborhoods and touristy Navy Pier, home of Windy City Magic. Amber Sands's mother is a witch who owns the magic shop where Amber works as a matchmaker. Tirado's Amber is a sweet but feisty teen. Tirado realistically portrays Amber's ever-changing emotions, especially in her school relationships - she's warm toward Imani and Charlie and icy toward Ivy, a siren who 'forces' Amber to punch her. The action escalates when Charlie asks Amber to secretly find the missing woman who will soon be his stepmother. Listeners will marvel at Amber's convincing explanation of how magic and baking (one of her passions) are alike because the ingredients must be perfectly mixed for the desired outcome. The revelation of her first love is a fun surprise since - as a matchmaker - Amber had envisioned Charlie with someone else. Most rewarding is hearing Amber mature as she realizes there are multiple possibilities in life." (AudioFile Magazine)
