Amber is not a witch but a matchmaker. Her famous family bloodline somehow skipped a generation and left her with no magical powers except for her matchmaking abilities. Her life is fairly normal outside of working at Windy City Magic, her mother's magic shop. One day, Charlie, the mayor's son, comes asking for her help. His dad's fiancé has gone missing, but Charlie actually wants Amber's help keeping his dad's fiancé from his father. Through a series of investigations, Amber starts to fall for Charlie, but she is torn since her ability allows her to see Charlie's perfect match, and it isn't her. However, Charlie wants to be with Amber no matter who she sees. Through some travels into the supernatural culture, they come to learn that the missing fiancé is a leprechaun after the mayor's wealth. And then Charlie's match shows up in Amber's class as a new transfer student, leading into the promised sequel.
