The Waverley family, Claire and Sydney, both have the gift of helpful magic. They live in the charming town of Bascom, North Carolina where it’s autumn and as temperatures fall, everyone and everything grows restless and problems flourish.
Claire runs Waverley’s Candies out of her kitchen, making handcrafted confections. Business is so good she can’t keep up with demand on her own. When someone offers to buy the business, Claire is stuck in a quandary.
Sydney owns a successful hair salon and knows what hairstyle will look best on anyone. But she’s reluctant to fire a new hire who isn’t working out.
Sydney’s daughter Bay is still learning about her magical gift and falling hard for a boy who’s not in on the family secret.
Add a mysterious stranger to the mix, and the enchanting world where the family apple tree fills the air with mischievous magic seems threatened. The Waverley sisters neither know what the stranger wants, nor if he presents a threat. Does he know the Waverley family secrets? First Frost is magical chick lit done light and right. If you enjoy Aimee Bender, Ellen Meister or Kristin Hannah you should add Sarah Addison Allen to your “to read” list.
