Overview

Stacy Justice is your average small-town reporter...who just so happens to be a witch. She’s never had the time or patience to mess around with the magic her grandmother and great-aunts are into, even though Grandma says Stacy has a higher calling. Right now, Stacy has stories to cover, her cousin Cinnamon’s bar to help run, and her cute cop boyfriend and flatulent Great Dane to keep her company.

But when someone sets Cinnamon’s bar ablaze — almost killing Stacy in the process — the green-eyed redhead will have to embrace her inner witch after all. Then her investigation into the crime reveals two things: someone wants Stacy dead, and her so-called magic skills are rusty. If she doesn’t get her mojo back soon, she won’t live long enough to find out if Grandma was right.

A bewitching tale of mystery, magic, and mayhem, Opal Fire ignites a dazzling new mystery series.

Editorial Reviews

Jan Crow
"Barbra Annino presents us with the gift of a very entertaining story. Lots of humor, wonderful character descriptions, great one liners and a plot that will keep you guessing. You won’t want to miss this book, it’s a keeper. And, don’t miss the next installment of the Stacy Justice mysteries, Bloodstone. I’m sure it will be just as good as Opal Fire."

"A truly enjoyable and engaging read requires several ingredients: an intriguing protagonist, interesting, well-rounded supporting characters, a brisk pace, a hint or more of danger, a slew of story questions, and a satisfying end in which the bad dude gets his just reward. Opal Fire by Barbra Annino has all this and more."

"This book had me laughing one minute and guessing the next one. I though I had figured out who the arsonist was but I was so wrong. The end was truly surprising and unexpected. Now I can't wait to read book #2 in this series!"
Jackie B
Debut novel from author Barbra Annino is a crazy mix of mystery, magic, thrills, romance and humor! It grabs you, pulls you in and let's you have a good time with all the main characters as well as the secondary ones... From Stacy herself, her no nonsense cousin Cinnamon, her cop boyfriend Leo all the way to her wonderful Great Dane Thor everyone is believable as well as well fleshed out... By the time you get to the end of the book they are all like friends and family..."
