About this ebook

New town…new start…same old problems


When sister witches Mag and Clara Balefire moved to the sleepy town of Harmony, Maine, to take over leadership of the coven there, they thought they’d have chance at a new life. Fate had other plans. The Balefires hardly have time to get unpacked when they stumble over a dead body.

Local authorities consider the death an open and shut case, but Mag and Clara refuse to let the ruling of accidental death stand—not when they’re positive it was murder.

As they dig deeper, secrets begin to surface and the sisters begin to suspect some of the townsfolk aren’t as innocent as they appear. When they discover the killer might be someone close to the victim, they don’t know who to trust.

As if that’s not enough, the local coven expects them to bring their cantankerous, ancient leader to heel, and she’s having none of it.

Between solving two murders and keeping a mischievous, elderly witch with power to spare from wreaking havoc, moving to a small town isn’t quite what the Balefire sisters bargained for.

If you like a fun paranormal mystery with a heaping dollop of sarcasm and wit, you'll love this humorous magical story full of chaos and intrigue.

This is a full-length, humorous mystery novel featuring witches and other paranormal characters.

I love these books that these Ladies write. I have read 7 of their books and have more in my Library to read. Can't wait until new ones come out. They keep you interested in them that you want to keep reading and before you know it it's three or four in the morning. Thank you Regina and Erin for writing all these good books.

the writing was confusing, felt rushed, and didn't have well developed characters or storyline.
