When Mae Kingsley is forced to move into her family’s rundown lake house, she discovers small town living is not as simple as it seems. Bursts of violence, silent treatments, archaic rituals and two very cute guys with seriously mysterious motives all appear with the rising of the new moon.
But that’s nothing compared to the family secrets soon to be revealed. A box sealed in a vault, hidden rooms, naked swimming. There’s a trove of family revelations just beneath the floorboards, waiting to be exposed.
As the paranormal bonding season for the High Council Witches begins, Mae must quickly decide who to trust and who to fear before a deadly family tradition repeats itself and her chance to live a normal life completely disappears.
As soon as I picked up this book I was transported into a world of secrets. I was completely immersed into an interesting story. I could not put this book down. It was action packed from the first page.
Mae and her Aunt have always moved around and spent many vacations in the small town of Plumpkin. But when her aunt suggests they make the vacation stay more permanent, what choice does she have. Now starting school in the small town, many secrets begin to unravel. Is she ready for the truth?
This book has some fun characters and the author did a wonderful job of laying out the groundwork for a successful series. It is full of mystery and secret society stuff. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and can’t wait to read the next one.
