She’s a kitchen witch who can’t cook and there’s a dead guy haunting her dreams. When Tamsyn’s life starts to feel like one big hex, will moving to her aunt’s B&B on a remote Maine island work like a charm, or be her worst choice ever?

Tamsyn Bassett is having a bad week. Like, losing your job and getting dumped by your boyfriend kind of bad. So when her great aunt invites her to spend the summer at her inn, Tamsyn jumps at the chance. Instead of the peaceful getaway she expected, she’s immediately confronted with the preposterous revelation that she’s descended from a long line of kitchen witches and is the last hope of her generation to keep magic alive in Pinecroft Cove. That she’s the world’s worst cook could be an issue.

As if navigating a strange new world of spells, magic, and exploding blueberry pies isn’t enough to handle, that awkward boy who had a crush on her when they were kids seems to turn up everywhere she looks. Only now that he’s a super dreamy doctor, it’s Tamsyn’s turn to be the awkward one. If she didn’t know better, she’d swear someone put a hex on her.

One more thing. Tamsyn’s pretty sure she’s being haunted, and not by just any ghost but by Doctor Dreamy’s dead uncle. If she can’t harness her powers in time to figure out the truth behind his mysterious death, she may never have a moment of peace again.

When death strikes the island’s controversial real estate mogul, will Tamsyn’s newly discovered powers be any match for murder?

The Napa Valley native is desperately seeking work after yet another job goes up in smoke. Her third employer in a row has gone out of business, and her only lead for gainful employment comes from the familiar voice of her late great-grandma Jane, who tells Fio in a dream to seek a position at one of the country’s largest real estate agencies, Quest Realty.

After a disastrous interview with prospective boss Jack Adams, and a run-in with the apparition of a former Quest employee, Fio is ready to give up the ghost and accept long-term unemployment, but Jack has other ideas. He tells Fio if she can spend the night in a haunted apartment and get to the bottom of a supernatural mystery, she just might be right for the job.

Can Fio face her fear and calm a restless spirit? Is she destined for a desk in the Haunted and Hexed Property management division, or will it be back to the want ads in the morning, assuming she survives the night?

What the hex?

Trinket’s life is on track to be fabulous…until the moment her crazy mother screws up yet another magic spell and draws the attention of the A.S.S. (Abnormal and Supernatural Security). The agent that shows up at her door is named Angelo. He is sizzling hot, bullheaded, and mysterious, and he promptly banishes the two of them to Jagged Grove, a weird island full of magical women and men, mystical creatures, and other strange beings.

Trouble brewing

Trinket and her mom fit right in, even if she refuses to admit it. Now she’s stuck in this town that doesn’t actually exist to serve out her sentence: teach a young witch named Maggie how to be a healer and get her mom under control. Then, if she’s lucky, she can go home. It should be a piece of cake, except for the fact that Trinket once killed somebody trying to heal them and she vowed to never practice her magic again.

Oh, and when she gets to Jagged Grove Maggie is dead.  

Now, with the help of a too-sexy werewolf, an elegant vampire, and her sweet but unhelpful mother, Trinket has to figure out who murdered Maggie and find a way home before her real-life crumbles away to nothing.

Charlene Morris knew Salem, Massachusetts had a spooky reputation. But when she decided to open her B&B there, she expected guests–not ghosts…

A grieving young widow, Charlene needed a new start–so she bought a historic mansion, sight unseen, and drove from Chicago to New England to start turning it into a bed-and-breakfast.

On her first night in the house, she awakens to find a handsome man with startling blue eyes in her bedroom. Terror turns to utter disbelief when he politely introduces himself as Jack Strathmore–and explains that he used to live here–when he was alive. He firmly believes that someone pushed him down the stairs three years ago, and he won’t be able to leave until someone figures out who.

If Charlene wants to get her business up and running in time for the Halloween tourist rush and get this haunting houseguest out of the way, she’ll have to investigate. Though the truth be told, this ghost is starting to grow on her.

When Nann (that’s with 2 nn’s please) moves to her late Aunt Nancy’s home in Calamity Corners, she wonders why there’s a little pig running amok with a toilet seat in its mouth. But that’s the least of her worries. She has a bookstore to open. 

Cemetery Center doesn’t sound like an up and coming place to open a new business, but the square footage is huge and the rent is right. Her shop neighbor Zinnia owns the art gallery next door. But Zinnia has a secret, one that occurs on the full moon. Werewolf? Not exactly. 

When Nann searches for a vehicle to buy, she’s sent to the only car repair shop in town. However, Tink, the shop mechanic, has Spock’s ears. Okay…And what’s going on on the third floor of her bookstore building? Men get together and drink beer around a coffin. Someone mentioned the VHS. Vampire Hunter Society? Van Helsing Society? This town is getting weirder by the minute. 

But that’s just the way Nann likes it. She’s a Druid witch, just like her late Aunt Nancy. She’s come to take over her aunt’s home and move the family bookstore business. Pokey the Pig is Aunt Nancy’s familiar and by lineage becomes Nann’s familiar. She communicates through the radio, and depending on what station you’re on, Nann either gets a red-eyed feisty porker or ‘I just want to be held’ piggy. 

So when boys begin to go missing in neighboring towns, Nann is convinced it’s magic that’s gone haywire. Could it be the giant pointy eared mechanic named Tink has taken to kidnapping, or does her neighbor shifter Zinnia have an appetite for humans? Or could whatever is in the coffin on the third floor have a hand in it? The gang is also looking at Nann….they all remember Hansel & Gretel. Nann must find Aunt Nancy’s witch books so she can put a stop to the disappearances, but she’s in for more than she bargained for when forces come at her from different directions.
