Small Town Magic in The Book Charmer by Karen Hawkins



“Life is full of surprises and not all of them are good.”


This book has all the elements of a Hallmark movie, including magical characters - literally and metaphorically. A young woman who had a difficult childhood. moves into the small town of Dove Pond, N.C. She meets Sarah Dove - a woman with a special relationship with books that extends beyond her being the town librarian. There is mystery and magic as Sarah the delightful story unravels.

I mentioned Hallmark because this story is sweet, and even charming, with a light narrative and some characters touching on cliché. However, its small town charm and warm, fuzzy feeling it leaves you with is perfect for fans of Debbie Macomber and Hallmark movie junkies.
