Indie bookstore owner Emerson Wilde is the youngest president of the Chamber of Commerce in her small Missouri hometown and is determined to pull off a successful local festival. However, she wasn’t planning on an assassination attempt, dangerous situations for her tight circle of friends, or the threat of the world ending. Her life as she knows it is tipped on its axis when she learns of the existence of magic and its deeply rooted presence in her past. On top of all the chaos disrupting her perfectly scheduled life, she finds herself drawn to her stoic friend Jacob. With her friends (now her coven) by her side, she must quickly learn to embrace her magic as they fight to protect their town and all of humanity.
VERDICT This first series entry from Beck (the pseudonym of Nicole Helm and Caitlin Crews/Megan Crane) introduces a great circle of friends and lovers, while bringing adventure, mystery, and heart along with small-town charm.
