Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.

THE SWEETEST KIND OF FATE is an excellent follow up to THE BEST KIND OF MAGIC. With high school drama and first love, this reads like a young adult contemporary romance at times. With excellent characters and exciting paranormal aspects, THE SWEETEST KIND OF FATE is a perfect read if you're looking for something light with a bit of a fantasy vibe.

Having read THE BEST KIND OF MAGIC, I knew to expect a fluffy, YA contemporary feel. Since it was expected, I was totally into it! Throughout the book, Amber is dealing with her feelings for Charlie, his supposed match (per her visions when she looks into his eyes) and what to do about them since she doesn't believe she is ever wrong. Plus, there's there plot line with Ivy and Iris, which turns out to be a bit emotionally deeper than expected. But everything really comes back to the central question of true love and whether you're fated to be with one person.

Though there's a lot going on in THE SWEETEST KIND OF FATE, this book feels more cohesive than THE BEST KIND OF MAGIC. Whether it was because there was less introduction to do, or the plot just flowed better, the story seemed less all over the place. Plus, there was way less telling from Amber's internal monologue. Instead, we just got some super witty, sarcastic narration from her!

Definitely a highlight of these two books are the characters. Cestari creates some great multi-dimensional characters who feel real for their ages. Amber acts like the high schooler that she is! Which means that sometimes she feels a little prone to being a drama queen, but....she's a teenager - what do you expect?

THE SWEETEST KIND OF FATE is certainly a very enjoyable book, and I'm eager to see where Amber's path goes. Definitely recommend this one, but do read THE BEST KIND OF MAGIC first, as this one really builds on it.
