The Book Charmer by Karen Hawkins
This is one of those books that I was sad to finish because it was such a fun read. It is a feel good book. Magical realism and a bit of romance abound in this book about Grace, who moves to Dove Pond to care for her niece, Daisy and her foster mother after her sister passes away. Mama G., Grace's foster mom who raised Grace and her sister, Hannah, has altzheimer's and is declining quickly. Daisy, Grace's 8 year old niece, is sullen and Grace is overwhelmed. Her neighbors, Sarah Dove, who hears books talk to her and Trav, along with the other townspeople help Grace as much as she helps the town.
