Secondhand Spirits by Juliet Blackwell was good.  It's the first in Witchcraft Mystery Series.

The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe was good, too.

 

ETA:  The "Three Sisters Island Trilogy" by Nora Roberts was also good.  That's an older series.

I haven't read Practical Magic (need to!) but I think you may enjoy Sarah Addisen Allen's Garden Spells and The Sugar Queen. Magical, but not in a witchy way.
