Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen

This spellbinding novel tells the story of the Waverly sisters and the enchanted apple tree in their backyard.

Claire is the in-demand caterer, whose edible flowers and plants that magically influence the mood and behavior of those who partake of them are all the rage. But Claire herself is not a people person, she’s standoffish and wary and cautious with her heart; she’s been hurt so many times it’s hard for her to let anyone get close to her anymore, including the handsome neighbor who has laid siege to her heart.

Her sister Sydney is the rebel who ran away from home just like their mother did.

When Sydney returns unexpectedly with her five-year-old daughter Bay in tow, fleeing an abusive relationship, Claire’s life is turned topsy-turvy.

This is a delightful, magical book, by an author whose books I always make a point of buying as soon as I know a new one is out.
