Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered by Kerry Barrett

A Kind of Magic Part-time witch, full-time glamorous high-flyer Esme Mcleod rubs shoulders with celebrities for a living, has a sort-of-boyfriend ...and just enough magic in her fingertips to solve life's little irritations; why shouldn't she cast a little spell to catch the busy barman's attention, or to summon a latte to aid her all-nighters? Called back to her small Scottish home town and meddling family, stiletto-clad Esme is way out of her comfort zone... But Esme must embrace her abilities as a witch, or watch her family lose their beloved cafe. Except Esme has never claimed to be a whizz at witchcraft, and her charms are starting to go awry - she certainly never meant to cast a love spell on her ex-boyfriend Jamie! It's time for urgent lessons in magic as well as love - it seems there's only so much that muttering a few words over cupcake batter will fix... From Goodreads.

A cute read. Also a bit of suspense but not too much. I like witches, I like Scotland (though apart from being told it is set in Scotland, it doesn't feel very Scottish) and I liked this story. I will most likely pick up the second book in the series and hope the author shows us a bit of Edinburgh.
