⭐ "Lourey expertly concocts a Gothic fusion of long-held secrets, melancholy, and resolve..." ―Publishers Weekly

⭐ "Think Alice Hoffman...spell-binding!" ―Midwest Book Review

Faith Falls is a snug little Minnesota town constructed over a mystery, a place where the most impressive building is the Catalain's gorgeous Victorian mansion on the hill. The people of Faith Falls have an uneasy truce with the Catalain witches; they don't trust them, yet they can't resist buying their kitchen magic and love potions.

When the Catalain's prodigal daughter returns to Faith Falls with a mysterious and dangerous bluesman on her heels, all the bad blood boils to the surface, dredging up secrets, bitter curses, and a decades-old, unsolved murder. The Catalain women must find a way to heal their bond and make peace with their past, or they'll lose their freedom, their ancestral home, and in the case of at least one Catalain witch...their life.

This lush, intoxicating tale weaves together mystery, romance, and magic. Perfect for fans of Practical Magic, The Vine Witch, and The Lost Apothecary. BONUS CONTENT: includes beautifully illustrated spells from the Book of Secrets.

"[T]ightly plotted, and Lourey shines when depicting relationships―romantic ones as well as tangled links between Catalains...." ―Kirkus Reviews
