Book Description:

Intuition alone brought Makayla to Salem, Ma in search of a story, but her research has her confronting more than she bargained for. With her empathic gifts stronger in Witch City, she physically suffers, landing her literally unconscious in the arms of both Noah Ayers, local cop and Dylan Baines, local history teacher. Yet, it is Lauri, a witch who owns a local shop, who teaches Makayla about who she is and what she can do.

Unfortunately for all of them, Makayla also stumbles upon a coven in the woods practicing a dark magic ritual. Now they are after her, threatening her life and the lives of those she has quickly come to care about. Immersed in things she never expected, like an old legend and necromancy due to residual hauntings, the race is on to stay safe from the coven and protect her heart from a certain sexy cop.

But, is Lauri correct in thinking Makayla might just have encountered the only real witch in Salem in 1692? And, do they share the same bloodline?

What a great story.  You are pulled in right from the beginning.   It is a well written, interesting mystery/suspense with a great amount of romance added in.  All blended together to make a not to be missed paranormal.

Makayla is an interesting character.  As we follow her around Salem we learn not only about what she is experiencing but also who she is.  As she meets local characters they are incorporated very well into the story.

With the addition of her discovery in the woods we not only have the story about when she is experiencing in her visions of the past in Salem but we also get a very well done suspense mystery added in.

I really enjoyed Makayla's story and am so glad I read it.  I  will definitely be checking out books by this author again.
