Witches on Parole

**Two pendants. Two students. And it’s entirely possible they didn’t volunteer.**
World-famous (and now retired) photographer Jenvieve Adams has a debt to repay–and a soft spot for witches who have lost their way. Or so she thinks, until they actually show up.
Jennie is the newest guide for WitchLight, and her first two students are about to arrive. One is an obsessive psychologist with hidden layers under her repressed exterior. The other is a grown-up juvenile delinquent with a passion for words and a kick-ass biscuit recipe.
Can Jennie help unlock their hearts? The journey will involve (sometimes involuntary!) sisterhood, a little knitting, karaoke, a touch of magic, and one hopefully temporary belly tattoo.
**Note: ***Witches on Parole* is a spin-off trilogy, set in the world of the *A Modern Witch* series. This trilogy can absolutely be enjoyed on its own, but if you haven’t yet read A Modern Witch, you might consider doing so–many of the characters featured in Witches on Parole get their start in the main series. For those who are already fans of the main series, this book falls between book 2 and 3, but can easily be read anytime after book 1.

The Witches of Eastwick

Toward the end of the Vietnam era, in a snug little Rhode Island seacoast town, wonderful powers have descended upon Alexandra, Jane, and Sukie, bewitching divorcées with sudden access to all that is female, fecund, and mysterious. Alexandra, a sculptor, summons thunderstorms; Jane, a cellist, floats on the air; and Sukie, the local gossip columnist, turns milk into cream. Their happy little coven takes on new, malignant life when a dark and moneyed stranger, Darryl Van Horne, refurbishes the long-derelict Lenox mansion and invites them in to play. Thenceforth scandal flits through the darkening, crooked streets of Eastwick—and through the even darker fantasies of the town’s collective psyche.

Witches in Flight

“Ghosts from Lizard’s past–and the man who wants to be her future. The empty places in Elsie’s soul–and the temptations of raspberry-laced courage. Walk once more with Jennie’s students as they come to the end of their WitchLight journeys. Ah–just read it You know you want to :- ).”–Back cover.

Witches Abroad

SUMMARY: Be careful what you wish for…Once upon a time there was a fairy godmother named Desiderata who had a good heart, a wise head, and poor planning skills–which unforunately left the Princess Emberella in the care of her other (not quite so good and wise) godmother when DEATH came for Desiderata. So now it’s up to Magrat Garlick, Granny Weatherwax, and Nanny Ogg to hop on broomsticks and make for far-distant Genua to ensure the servant girl doesn’t marry the Prince.But the road to Genua is bumpy, and along the way the trio of witches encounters the occasional vampire, werewolf, and falling house (well this is a fairy tale, after all). The trouble really begins once these reluctant foster-godmothers arrive in Genua and must outwit their power-hungry counterpart who’ll stop at nothing to achieve a proper “happy ending”–even if it means destroying a kingdom.

The Witch’s Grave

A sinister stalker is slowly drawing closer to Ophelia, and she’ll have to summon all her powers to prevent herself from ending up six feet under.

She doesn’t have a job but she’s always working at something … as long as she survives to see another fantastic island sunrise, that is.

The Witch of Portobello

Paulo Coelho, one of the world’s best loved storytellers, is back with a riveting new novel set in London.
This is the story of Athena, or Sherine, to give her the name she was baptised with. Her life is pieced together through a series of recorded interviews with those people who knew her well or hardly at all – parents, colleagues, teachers, friends, acquaintances, her ex-husband.
The novel unravels Athena’s mysterious beginnings, via an orphanage in Romania, to a childhood in Beirut. When war breaks out, her adoptive family move with her to London, where a dramatic turn of events occurs…
Athena, who has been dubbed ‘the Witch of Portobello’ for her seeming powers of prophecy, disappears dramatically, leaving those who knew her to solve the mystery of her life and abrupt departure.
Like The Alchemist, The Witch of Portobello is the kind of story that will transform the way readers think about love, passion, joy and sacrifice.

Under the watchful eye of the organisation’s top investigator, and with the help of her friends, Carmella must uncover the identity of the supernatural creatures behind the attack and expose the person pulling their strings.
If that wasn’t enough, her asura power chooses this case to surge to the surface. Now Carmella must quickly learn to master a force bigger than she could ever have anticipated. Because Carmella is on a hit list, and the person that wants her dead will do anything to uncover her weaknesses, except this time Carmella won’t be taken by surprise. This time she’s not going down without a fight.

When the evidence begins to point to an entirely alien and sinister plot, the government agency Carmella works for is forced to change strategy.
