Wisteria Witches (Wisteria Witches Mysteries Book 1)

by Angela Pepper

Zara Riddle moved to a small town so her life could be quiet and safe. But now that her witch powers have kicked in, life is anything but. Long-lost relatives are coming out of the woodwork, and it turns out the family tree is riddled with magic.

When a ghost shows up, Zara finds out her Spirit Charmed powers come with a cost. She must solve the woman’s murder. Zara teams up with her handsome neighbor, a wolf shifter who’s both mysterious and perfect. Maybe too perfect? He did save her life during a vicious attack, but some strange coincidences have Zara second-guessing her alliances.

The town of Wisteria may be quaint on the surface, but danger lurks around every corner. To protect her family, Zara must risk her heart and her life. Forces of good and evil will face off in a battle where one side has a secret advantage.

One thing’s for sure. Zara Riddle is keeping these new powers, blue lightning balls and all.

Once you go witch, you never switch.

There are many other plot twists and surprises, including a new unwarranted love interest for Walter, the rest are left to your discovery. The brutality and sexuality is not too descriptive and is tastefully described.
