Witches & Words (Paperback)
It's the new year in Ivory Beach, and Rory is nursing a broken heart after Xavier's abrupt departure from town. A distraction comes in the form of a batch of new tourists visiting the library, but when a holidaying stranger returns a rare book to her family and is then found dead, Rory finds herself in hot water again.
Handling rare books is second nature to Rory's family, but this one has a little more personality than Rory is used to. Not only is it refusing to divulge its secrets, the killer might still be lurking among the hotel's other guests. When Rory meets fellow witch Blair Wilkes, visiting from the town of Fairy Falls with her boyfriend Nathan, Blair offers to use her unusual magical talent to help Rory to get to the bottom of the mystery.
Complicating matters, the Reaper returns to town along with his terrifying boss. Working with Xavier again might be the only way for Rory to solve the murder, but more than her heart is in danger this time.
Can Rory solve the mystery, repair her relationship with Xavier and stop the killer before he strikes again?
