My Review First Frost picks up several years after the magical Garden Spells.  Things have changed for the Waverly women, and little Bay is in high school now.  Magic is still afoot and it is so delightful to read each Waverly’s journey with the family magic and how it works for each of them. I like […]

My Review Lost Lake is the first book the author has written since her bout with cancer, a fight she lived very publicly through her social media.  It was much anticipated and, I think, that much more wonderful to read.  This book was as beautifully written as anything and everything Sarah Addison Allen has written!

My Review The debut novel from Sarah Addison Allen., Garden Spells is a captivating story woven with magic and fantasy.  It enchanted me from the opening sentence!  It centers around two sisters, Claire and Sydney Waverley, who have finally come together many years later.  Their family has a long history of having some rather odd gifts […]
