After Windsor Ebonwood’s love life and successful career as a book conservator vanish in one fell swoop, she’s determined to begin anew. Win moves to Darkly Island off the coast of Louisiana, where she’s been bequeathed an unusual bookshop and a charming home on the edge of a dark swamp.
Win gets to work settling into her new life in the sleepy Southern town, but discovering Darkly’s heartless town alderman impaled on a gravestone wasn’t on the books. Nor was finding out about her family’s legacy as powerful witches responsible for protecting the bookshop at all costs.
While she is coming to terms with her powers, a new friend is accused of the murder and Win is convinced the allegation doesn’t ring true. She and her one-eyed cat familiar, Pyewacket—who has his own secrets to hide—step in to investigate. Between an irresistible Alpha shifter and long buried family secrets, Win begins to realize there are more than fireflies and alligators lurking in the swamp.
Win will need to work fast because the killer is not done with their murderous rampage. And the questions Win’s asking are hitting too close to home for the killer’s comfort…
