Southern Witch, Book 1
February 3, 2009
In the small town of Duvall, Texas, the only thing more troublesome than gossip — is magic.
The family magic seems to have skipped over Tammy Jo Trask. All she gets are a few untimely visits from long-dead, smart-mouthed family ghost Edie. But when her locket—an heirloom that happens to hold Edie’s soul—is stolen in the midst of a town-wide crime spree, it’s time for Tammy to find her inner witch.
After a few experiences with her dysfunctional magic, Tammy turns to the only person in small-town Duval, Texas, who can help: the very rich and highly magical Bryn Lyons. He might have all the answers—and a 007 savoir faire to boot—but the locket isn’t the only heirloom passed down in Tammy’s family. She also inherited a warning: stay away from Lyons.
Tammy Jo Trask grew up believing that she was the only one in a family of witches who learned the dos and don’ts while inheriting none of the magic. When the locket containing the ghost of an ancestor is stolen, she’ll do everything she can to get it back, even if it means breaking one of the rules.
Bryn Lyons is handsome, wealthy and knows all about magic. It’s too bad that he’s on the list of don’ts, but it’s not long before Tammy Jo has gotten herself into a heap of trouble that not even her ex-husband can get her out of. The only option she can see is going to the one man she shouldn’t for help, and Lyons isn’t about to let her forget.
This is the first installment of the Southern Witch series. Ms. Frost blends myth with a whole lot of magic, giving readers a wildly entertaining read. Would-Be Witch has its dark and dangerous moments that should satisfy the reader’s appetite for action, and the heroine’s unresolved love life adds seduction and love to the mix. I’m looking forward to Tammy Jo’s next adventure in magic.
