Circle Of Five

Now that her children are grown, her lout of an ex-husband is gone, and her herbal remedy business has taken off, Cass Shipton is free to enjoy the simple comforts of her grown-up life. There’s her cozy Cape Cod home overlooking Plymouth Harbor. Her scruffy, disdainful pooch. And the strong connection she shares with four other ordinary women who get together to sip tea, trade stories, cast the odd spell and work a bit of magic. Just your typical, everyday Wiccans who work at the local library, carpool the kids, and run the vitamin store in the mall.

But Cass’s idyllic, small-town life changes after she bumps carts at the local supermarket with a stranger in a green cap. Beneath the man’s cheery smile and twinkling eyes, Cass senses something sinister...a foreboding that leads her to the haunting case of a missing boy. Certain that something must be done, Cass turns to her friends to help her find the truth, no matter where it leads. And when another boy disappears, the circle of five bands together in a dangerous undertaking that will call upon all their powers and test the bonds of friendship as never before...

Wickedly funny, harrowingly suspenseful, and as deliciously warm-hearted as a girls’ night in, Circle Of Five is a joyful celebration of the kind of friendship that makes a magic all its own.

    A Great Read!

    This is a fascinating story of five women who dabble in the occult and find themselves in the middle of a murder mystery. It's warm and funny, and at the same time a white knuckle read. My very favorite book of the year. I also enjoyed Ms Riccio book Spirit and am anxiously awaiting the publication of her next book Charmed Circle.

    enchanting relationship crime drama

    In Plymouth Harbor, Massachusetts, Cassandra Sipton belongs to a Wiccan with four other women. Cass sells Earthline Herbal Preparations and Cruelty Free Cosmetics while living with her dog Scruffy. One day while shopping at the supermarket, her cart crashes into that of a guy with a green cap on. Seeing a vision of a dead boy, she senses an evil essence inside of the smiling Green Cap. Cass tells her four friends what she felt and they conduct a séance in which they shock themselves and make contact. While walking with Scruffy in nearby Jenkins Woods, the canine finds a child¿s key chain with a name on it of that of a boy who vanished without a trace. Cass and her Wiccan friends believe the Green Cap is the serial killer of that child and must be stopped even if it means risking their lives by using their tyro level powers. CIRCLE OF FIVE is figuratively and literally an enchanting relationship crime drama. The magical story line grips the audience from the beginning when the truck driver kills the little boy while whistling a tune from Gypsy. The five women especially Cass are a delightful quintet struggling with their new powers (sort of like the Greatest American Hero) and the impact that has on their friendships. They work through all this while teaming up to try to capture a killer with no one to help them. Dolores Stewart Riccio provides fans with a bewitching tale and the audience will return to see what happens next in CHARMED CIRCLE. Harriet Klausner
