Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen
Garden Spells is set in Bascom, North Carolina where Claire Waverley tries to manage a magical garden. Her apple tree flings fruit at passersby, but its fruit contains secrets. Claire cooks up strange recipes from the garden's flowers and herbs to create delightful foods with a touch of magic. Her cousin, Evanelle, has a knack for giving odd gifts that eventually become quite appropriate. Claire's sister, Sydney, unexpectedly returns to the family home, along with her young daughter, Bay. The sisters had been abandoned by their mother and grown apart. Together again, they must confront their past in order to create the loving home for Bay, in contrast to their own childhoods.
