Second in a series focused around the “magically-favored” Dove sisters of Dove Pond, NC. Ava is the 6th sister of 7 and her “gift” is nurturing and having empathy with plants. She owns a nursery and is set to open a cafe to specifically showcase her teas which can help folks in extraordinary ways. Kristen is a teenager who works for Ava who has just lost her mom to cancer. Her estranged grandmother (and now guardian) wants to sell Kristen‘s 🔻

robinb home and move her to Raleigh to live with her.
There are several storylines going on here…will Ava‘s cafe survive when she‘s beset with problems before it opens; will Ava and her sister, Sarah, find love; will Kristen track down her unknown father; will Kristen and her grandmother put aside their differences and compromise? 🔻

robinb Obviously there‘s A LOT going on here. I was a bit underwhelmed (as I was with the first book) as I‘ve always loved this author. But somehow I‘m just not connecting with these quirky characters and unique town as I thought I would. Still it is well written and plenty to enjoy about it. 4/5⭐️ 5mo

I received this as an ARC from Edelweiss and it was just the sort of lovely, charming book I was craving. Think a less dark Alice Hoffman story set in a small town with all of the gossip and connections.

robinb I love Hawkins‘ books. ❤️ 9mo
Cathythoughts What an amazing picture ❤️ 9mo
Nebklvr @robinb They are heartwarming and just the right amount of magical 9mo
