Havens, Candace. Like a Charm (New York: Berkley Books, c2008) 289 p.
Kira Smythe has fond memories of her hometown library in Sweet, Texas. "There are huge spirals at the top and it sits in the center of the small town. The arched windows and gargoyles over the double doors make it look like something out of a Grimm's fairy tale." (p. 21).

Kira also has special feelings for the old librarian, Mabel Canard. When Mrs. Canard dies Kira learns that the old librarian owned the Sweet Library and that it would now pass to to Kira on the condition that Kira move back to Sweet and become the librarian. Kira learns there is more to the library than she ever suspected.
