Synopsis

Someone is picking off a coven of witches one by one. Can Sgt. Nick Gibson and his team of detectives catch the killer before he loses the pretty witch who’s got him under her spell?

Nick must cast aside his disbelief and delve into the world of the supernatural to solve the case. On hand to help is Annaliese, a member of the coven who claims to have had a prophetic dream at the exact time of each victim’s death, offering clues to the identity of the killer. Can he accept the ‘proof’ offered by unconventional means or is she deliberately leading him astray to hide her own secrets? To cloud the issue, a local evangelist is telling anyone who asks that the victims had it coming. Is religious mania the motive for murder, or is it something more personal?

***Kristin – #NerdGirlSoldier’s Review***
When I picked this book up for review, I wasn’t sure what to expect other than a story about witches being killed off. After reading it, I’ve got a book hangover. I loved every minute of this book and will re-read it several times. I wish I could give it more than five stars because it deserves at least 10.

The story reels you in on the very first page. You meet Sgt Gibson, a cop, single dad and great guy. I love his character, especially since he’s an older guy who’s still got his charm. Nick is lead on a murder that appears to be an accident at first but after digging around with his team, it leads him to Anna. He’s instantly attracted to her but knows that since she knew the victim, Anna could be a suspect. As the story progresses, you’ll see that the two of them work very well together and it reminded me of Detective Kate Beckett and Richard Castle in the show Castle. Anna and Nick compliment each other well and the flow of the story is phenomenal. Just when you think you know what’s going to happen next, a twist happens and you’re thrown for a loop. I enjoyed the interaction between Anna and her coven with Nick. Anna is the only one who accepts his help and protection, while the others see him as a nosy outsider. I was shocked at the end when the perpetrator was revealed. You’ll never ever guess who it was.

Like I said, this book had me hooked. I tried to pace myself through it but my curiosity and need to know what happened next got the better of me. I was disappointed when it ended, not because of how it ended but because I was finished. The mystery of who done it and why was fantastic. The characters were very well developed and the plot was magical. I highly highly suggest that you pick up this book by Lisa Olsen today and get ready to be captivated. I can’t wait to buy her next book and see what happens with Nick and Anna.
