A lot has changed for Jinx Hamilton in just a few months. After the mishaps that befell her in Witch At Odds, Jinx just wants to enjoy the rest of the summer, but she's not going to be that lucky. Just as she's poised to tell her friends she's a witch, secrets start popping out all over the place. Between old foes and new locations, Jinx isn't going to get her peaceful summer, but she may just get an entirely different world.
Jinx Hamilton has been minding her own business working as a waitress at Tom's Cafe and keeping up with her four cats. Then she inherits her Aunt Fiona's store in neighboring Briar Hollow, North Carolina and learns that her aunt has willed her some special "powers" as well. They say admitting you have a problem is the first step and Jinx has a major problem. She's a brand new witch with no earthly clue what that means. Throw in a few homeless ghosts, a potential serial killer, and a resident rat and Jinx is almost at her wit's end. Thankfully she has the unfailing support of her life-long BFF, Tori and it doesn't hurt that there's a hot guy living right next door.
Resigned to her new life as a witch and determined to make a success of both that and her business, Jinx has a lot to learn. She sets out to both study her craft and get a true direction for her aunt's haphazard approach to inventory. Not to mention the fact that she wouldn't mind getting to know neighboring business owner Chase McGregor a lot better. Although Jinx can call on Aunt Fiona's ghost for help, the old lady is far too busy living a jet set afterlife to be worried about her niece's learning curve. That sets Jinx up to make a major mistake and to figure out how to set things right again.
The D'Artigo sisters are half-human, half-faerie sexy operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency who track down enemies, but their mixed-blood heritage causes them all kinds of problems at all the wrong times.
