Scent of Magic

Scent of Magic
by Lori L. Clark
Three sisters who are constantly moving each time someone decides that their handmade fragrances are signs of witchcraft move to a town and immediately begin making fragrances that people say are infused with witchcraft.

Final thoughts: I can't like this book. It's like an extended storyboard or outline for a book, but not really a book itself. It also can't seem to make up its mind. In the beginning, there seems to be the implication that the girls aren't really witches, but rather people with extrasensory perceptions. However, later it's revealed that they have a huge spell book handed down from generation to generation and kept in a safe. Make up your mind, please. Business is down one moment and then booming the next. Time flies sometimes and then crawls at others. And would someone please DESCRIBE something?!?! I have no idea what anyone looks like beyond hair color. I just can't really seem to care about these outlines of characters because there is nothing beyond that outline. Everything, including the plot, is superficial. Avoid this one until the author actually deigns to write it completely.
