Imagine how much scarier suburbia would be if the annoyingly perfect snobs on the cul-de-sac earned the title “witch” in more than just the euphemistic sense? When Paula returns to Haven Woods, the suburb where she grew up, to visit her ailing mother she is faced with the ghosts of her childhood and the witches of the present. And when those witches need to appease their “father” it becomes a dangerous situation for her young daughter, Rowan and her ebbing romance with a friend from her adolescent days who is also a recent returnee to the town.
This is a fun, fantastical twist on modern life in the ‘burbs. It’s an entertaining read, with bewitching characters, just right for a cool October evening.
