Wands In a lifetime.
This is an adorable series. I thoroughly enjoyed reading all the books in the set. What fascinated me the most was Emma Hart’s ability to see the ghost and her funny banter with her familiar, an owl. She’s brilliant, has a great sense of humor and brave enough to fight for her friends’ sake. This is one of the best paranormal cozies I have ever read.

She rushes to his aid and tries to distract him while her car rolls over to knock her down. The man, in fact, is an angel and returns the favor by taking off in the air, carrying her to safety. She learns that his name is Daniel and that he is a fallen angel. She wants to leave the place but shocked to find that she can’t step out. Daniel takes her into the town of Spellbound, where the residents are all super naturals. As per the norms, she visits Mayor Knightsbridge and the Town Council members to decide her fate. Maeve, the banshee tells her that the town is cursed by an enchantress that no supernatural living in the town would be able to step out of the boundary, because the townsfolk had refused to give her shelter during a storm. It’s now that she learns that she’s a witch.
