You'll want to stick around for our book discussion the same day at 2 pm on Laced with Magic by Barbara Bretton. It's the sequel to Casting Spells, which was a real crowd pleaser when we read it together last year. Here's a review from Publisher's Weekly:

Half-sorceress Chloe Hobbs and policeman Luke MacKenzie, the only humans in the
sleepy Vermont town of Sugar Maple, face worldly and unearthly challenges in
this sweetly charming sequel to 2008's Casting Spells. When Luke's ex-wife,
Karen, shows up in town claiming that their dead daughter is trying to ask them
for help, Chloe must deal with smalltown gossip and fix her relationship with
Luke while she battles her old Fae enemy, Isadora, over the child's spirit and
the future of Sugar Maple. Bretton seamlessly blends a playful world of
eccentric and meddling supernatural creatures living in the midst of New England
with a warm, natural and romantic story and just a hint of mystery. Scenes in
Chloe's yarn shop and helpful knitting tips hold extra appeal for yarn
aficionados while never distracting from the plot.

June 12 is going to be a big day-- can't wait to see you there!
