A spell that tore three sisters apart is broken four hundred years later, when the magic in their blood reunites them. Now, one of them will discover her gift—and reignite a love long thought lost…
Flame-haired Becca Carstairs was born to be a veterinarian. Since childhood, her affinity for animals has been special, and her healing touch nothing short of magic. But only Becca knows the truth—that she alone can hear the creatures’ voices. She’s always trusted her sixth sense… until a string of missing pets, an attempted murder, and a face from her past converge into one explosive mystery, with her at its center.
Is haunted Owen McAllister, the boy who broke her heart ten years ago, related to the sinister crimes that have peaceful Three Harbors, Wisconsin, on its guard? Or is his reappearance part of the answer to questions that have troubled her all her life? As Becca delves into her strange heritage, she’ll have to fight for her life… and the man she will always love.
In the second book of this spellbinding new series, New York Times bestselling author Lori Handeland delivers breath-taking danger, desire, and the dark heart of magic.
This is the second book in the Sisters of the Craft series by Lori Handeland.
Wow, after the first book, I couldn’t wait to get into this one. Becca is a vet and has no idea that she is really one of three triplet witches. A guy she knows comes back home from the military with a K-9 companion who is on a brief respite while trying to sell his mother’s house, which is now his house. Comes home from Afghanistan to find animal sacrifices in his living room. First to stumble upon the scene, however is his old friend, Becca.
Owen really goes through a lot in this book and many ways more than the main characters do. Becca discovers she has powers which come more into fruition when Raye, her sister from book one shows up. Becca has always been able to hear animals but never thought it was a particular witchy power, just insight after being a vet for so long.
This story really keeps you guessing and it is an edgy thriller with paranormal and supernatural elements. Quite a fun ride if you ask me. Definitely want to put this author on my must read list for sure!
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.
