With two lives hanging in the balance, Chloe is in a race against time to uncover the secrets hidden inside the cave before it’s too late. A town with everything at stake. A man with nothing left to lose. A story you don’t want to miss! Special Pre-Order price! SUGAR MAPLE – where nothing is the way it seems Praise for the Sugar Maple stories Bretton launches her new series of magic and murder with an enchanting, lyrical masterpiece that should make its way to the bestseller list in no time. With vibrant, multidimensional characters, including the town itself, Bretton pens a memorable romance that combines knitting, love, magic, and self-discovery. -- RT Book Club 4.5 stars – TOP PICK Tongue-in-cheek humor lifts this weird but fun hybrid, part knitting cozy, part paranormal romance, from romance veteran Bretton (Just Desserts). After a classy female tourist drowns mysteriously in an icy lake in remote Sugar Maple, Vt., the Montpelier authorities ask Boston homicide cop Luke MacKenzie to investigate. As Sugar Maple’s temporary police chief, Luke soon notices the village’s odd ambience. Originally a haven for witches who fled the Salem witchcraft trials three centuries earlier, Sugar Maple is now home to witches, vampires, fairies and trolls. Luke is also attracted to Chloe Hobbs, the half-human owner of the knitting shop Sticks & Strings, who must find Mr. Right if she’s to preserve the spell that sustains the town’s unusual residents. As sparks literally fly between the two, Chloe’s “magickal” side stirs into life. Bretton charmingly depicts how love empowers Chloe and awakens Luke to some major surprises. -- Publishers Weekly An imaginative and charming tale. -- Shelley Mosley, Booklist (STARRED REVIEW) A sweet setting with the sparkle of magic and a bite of suspense makes CASTING SPELLS a standout. -- Christie Ridgway, BookPage Don't miss this one! -- Kay Quinton, Fresh Fiction
