I peered out, straining to discern precious details. Dimly I could make out a glint on the asphalt drive below. Marcus's motorcycle. So he'd not left yet. I leaned closer to the window and tried to look straight down.
Without even the slightest hesitation or stab of conscience, I found myself moving the latch to the right and carefully sliding the sash upward, inch by inch.
Cold swept into the room like a marauding invader, invisibly, insidiously. I shivered and dropped to my knees, resting my hands on the sill. They were right down there, all right.
A ring of light edged into view, rippling like water. An oil lamp or flame of some sort. The light moved, and then I could see the two of them, glowing like fairy people in the darkness of night.
They were heading for the woods.
I watched the swinging lantern and shadowy figures disappear into an invisible treeline that I knew must be there. I stayed at the window, despite the fact that I was shivering to beat the devil, and kept scanning the far distance for some sign of what they were doing. It wasn't long before I saw a pale glow lighting the treetops.
Fire? And voices, wafting to me on the wind.
Adrenaline zipped up my spine. I hastily closed the window and climbed into bed, dragging the soft blankets up to my chin. No wonder Marcus and Felicity were an item. They were magical partners. Did they work with others? A coven of witches? Were they out there now?
What had I gotten myself into?From the Back Cover:
Double, double, toil and murder...
Bringing a little culture to Stony Mill, Indiana, Enchantments is one of the area’s finest antique stores. But shop clerk Maggie O’Neill and her employer Felicity Dow do more than conjure up curios for the locals—they each possess a talent for spellbinding sleuthing . . .
Bored with her office job, Maggie jumps at the opportunity to work at Enchantments. She was a little weirded out when Felicity described herself as a witch, but if her boss wants to play with broomsticks and cauldrons, where’s the harm? However, Maggie’s first day on the job may turn out to be her last when Police question Felicity in the murder of her estranged sister.
With everyone in town proclaiming Felicity’s guilt faster than the Salem Witch trials, Maggie finds herself wondering if she’ll also be tied to the stake. And lately, she’s been receiving messages on a spiritual frequency guiding her to prove Felicity’s innocence—and to embrace her own "charmed" life.
