Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Mona MacGregor is the manager of the Midnight Magic Shop in Goodnight, VA, and High Priestess of the local coven. On top of that, she's planning one sister's wedding and raising the other sister's two daughters. The last thing Mona needs is a wounded werewolf—even one as sexy as Adam—landing on her front stoop. Unfortunately, along with his wounds Adam brings word that someone is trying to kill Mona, and she realizes that it might be someone close by. With a demon on her tail, Mona knows she will need Adam's help to figure out who wants her dead. VERDICT With witches and werewolves, murder attempts, and romantic interludes, this supernatural mystery launch by the author of the "F.R.E.A.K.S. Squad Investigation" paranormal series (To Catch a Vampire; Mind Over Monsters) has a something for many readers' tastes. An entertaining romp through a fantasy town where even murder has a little bit of magic involved.
Kirkus Reviews
Just because you're a high priestess doesn't make your life any simpler, especially when it's threatened by a power-hungry witch. Mona McGregor's life has been complicated ever since her flaky sister, Ivy, dropped off her daughters, Cora and Sophie, on her way to who knows where and never looked back. Mona's raised the girls as her own, which is natural for her: As the local coven's high priestess, she's looked on by many as the matriarch of Goodnight, Va. When Adam Blue, the beta wolf of the Eastern Pack, mysteriously shows up at Mona's door looking for help, Mona isn't one to turn him away, even though he hasn't said 10 words to her in the many years they've known each other. Mona wants to send Adam back to his pack almost as much as he wants to go, but he's got inside information that a local witch has her eye on Mona's position in the coven, and the two realize that she literally may not be able to live without his help. Having a man around could be worse, but it starts to put a cramp in Mona's style when the local pediatrician, Guy Sutcliffe, expresses an interest in Mona that goes beyond his professional responsibilities to her nieces. With all signs pointing to an increase in the threat level, Mona must decide which man she can trust and which of her friends may be out to get her. Hell's bells! Harlow's balanced blend of romance and intrigue makes this one a winner--quite an improvement over her last (To Catch a Vampire, 2012, etc.).
