Adult Romantic Fantasy 
Cari Harris lives what should be a charmed life. She owns a quaint bed and breakfast in a charming southern town, is surrounded by loving friends and family, and possesses magical powers. Most of the residents in Fable, GA, are descended from mythical creatures straight out of fairy tales, and Cari is no exception. As a descendent of Cupid, she has the ability to see when two people are soul mates and the power to make sure they fall in love. However, this power is sometimes more of a curse than a blessing, because Cari is also the town screw up. While hosting a murder mystery weekend at her inn, she tries to match a young couple and makes a huge mistake. Now she must fix her mistake before the guests leave at the end of the weekend, all while making a bigger mess of things along the way, in her typical fashion. As if Cari didn’t have enough to worry about already, her old boyfriend just moved back to town. Years ago, she forced herself to stop thinking about Mike, but now that he’s back, there is no avoiding him. It’s a small town and she keeps running in to him, no matter how much she hopes to avoid it. When she stumbles across some unexpected secrets, and Mike helps her with her current matchmaking dilemma, all of her feelings from the past come flooding back.

This is a delightful story. I must admit to finding it a tad slow to begin with but I soon got into the rhythm of the book and I really started to enjoy it. 
This is a sweet and charming tale about a young woman who lives in perhaps the most likeable town in the US! I loved the idea that all the inhabitants are descended from mythical creatures although I would have liked to have read more about this side to the town. Currently, there are only a few minor references to it so I hope the sequel has much more. It has the potential to be a really fun magical series, if the author would just introduce a splash more of the magic!
As my background is in editing and proofreading, I did find quite a number of minor errors within the book - but because it is such a lovely tale, I didn't let this didn't detract from the story. However I would hope the author can find a few more proof readers for the next part of the series!
All in all, a thoroughly pleasant read.
