Lucy is a mother and wife who enjoys the peace and quiet of her farm in south Georgia. When she’s not working on the farm or spending time with family, she enjoys getting lost in a great book–preferably science-fiction, fantasy, mystery, and some romance, pretty much anything that holds her interest and isn’t too predictable.
She doesn’t entertain biographies, vampire tales, or x-rated books.

Emlyn recently learned she’s a direct descendant of a woman hanged as a witch in 1692. She has a book filled with arcane recipes and chants passed down through her family. Possessed of, or perhaps by a vivid imagination, she intends to use these to solve Jimmy’s murder before Roger takes revenge on the killer. But she’s new to this “witch thing,” and needs help from her friend Rebecca Nurse, whose ancestor also took a short drop from a Salem tree.
Rebecca’s not much better at deciphering the ancient directions, and while the women stumble over spell after spell, the number possible killers grows. When Chief Woodward’s wife is shot and a bottle bomb bursts through Emlyn’s window, it becomes clear she’s next on the killer’s list. More info →
