Goodreads synopsis: 

Abandoned beneath a black willow tree on the banks of a northern Wisconsin creek, Willow Black spent her entire childhood in foster care. Her entire life she's had terrifying visions, and it is these visions that eventually land her in a psychiatric facility. And so Willow takes her meds and believes she is getting better. Until she meets a fellow patient who doesn't think she is crazy at all. She thinks Willow is a witch.


Willow's psychiatrist, Dr. Sebastian Crane, works hard to resist his feeling that he and Willow are destined to be together while also working to convince her that strange occurrences aren't the result of witchcraft… until he is thrown into the middle of a storm of supernatural events that can't be explained any other way…

4.5 stars


This is the third book in the Sisters of the Craft series by Lori Handeland.


What a great ending this was. I was happy to see all the main characters from  the first two books sprinkled throughout this one. It was like watching the finale of a great tv series. I just couldn’t get enough. I like how things were wrapped up and how satisfied the ending made me feel.


This book featured Willow Black. Her witchy power was about visions and premonitions. She could see and know things that would happen. Of course, this made people think she was crazy and she ended up in the nut house, excuse me, psychiatric facility. Owen’s mother is also in this same facility. We do a bit of going back in time in order to get to know Willow and Mary’s relationship and how it developed. Here we also meet Dr. Sebastian Crane. Willow has known about him and how he would impact her life for a long time. She just never realized her would be her own doctor.


Mary and Willow learn some simple Wicca spells and this grows Willow’s power allowing her to accidentally send Mary outside of the facility. During this book we get a better insight into what happed to Mary and why things unfolded they way they did back in book two.


The minor characters here were just as fascinating as the leads. I am sorry to see this series end. I would totally watch this as a tv series if it ever came up on my channel picker.


Definitely a first class book. Highly recommended.


If you like romance with a dash of paranormal/supernatural, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.


I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
