Description

Nice witches finish last…

A guilt-ridden former coven is forced to tap into the magic of their past . . . if they want to stop their lives from going up in flames again.

On the outside, luxury real estate agent Sarah Nelson looks like every other mom in the suburb. But she has an edge that others don’t: She’s a witch. And no one knows . . . except her estranged ex-coven and college friends, Katrina and Alicia.

One terrible night during their freshman year, the trio accidentally burned down their dorm, and soon after they scattered. Their secret had been safe, until Sarah learns they’ve been invited back to commemorate the anniversary of the fire.

Suddenly, the magic doesn’t want to be controlled. Sarah’s orange tabby cat, Katy Purry, now argues with her. Her broom has become self-brooming, and her fridge somehow restocks thirty pounds of sliced turkey for school lunches. As it grows increasingly difficult to hide the magic and the past, Sarah, Katrina, and Alicia must harness their power together . . . before they find out if polite society still burns witches.

About the Author

Maureen Kilmer graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and lives in the Chicago suburbs with her husband and three children. She thankfully has not had to battle the forces of darkness (unless going to Costco on a Saturday counts). She is also the author of Suburban Hell, her horror debut.

"Sarah’s domestic use of magic in her day-to-day life is delightful [and] laugh-out-loud funny. . . A lighthearted witchy romp." —Kirkus Reviews

"This amusing [tale] of magic gone awry is a solid choice for collections where stories of modern-day witches are popular." —Booklist

"Kilmer enchants with this cozy fantasy novel that follows a disbanded coven who reunite to prevent magic from upending their lives. . . .The magical hijinks, pop culture references, and colorful cast (including a sassy talking cat) are sure to entertain.
