The promising debut of a hot new voice in paranormal romance – and the first of the Southern Witch novels.
The family magic seems to have skipped over Tammy Jo Trask. All she gets are a few untimely visits from long-dead, smart-mouthed family ghost Edie. But when her locket – an heirloom that happens to hold Edie’s soul – is stolen in the midst of a town-wide crime spree, it's time for Tammy to find her inner witch.
After a few experiences with her dysfunctional magic, Tammy turns to the only person in small-town Duval, Texas, who can help: the very rich and highly magical Bryn Lyons. He might have all the answers – and a 007 savoir faire to boot – but the locket isn't the only heirloom passed down in Tammy’s family. She also inherited a warning: stay away from Lyons.
Kimberly Frost is an American author of paranormal romance. Her Southern Witch series is set in the fictional town of Duvall, Texas. The books center on the life of Tammy Jo Trask, a young witch who has trouble controlling her powers. Similar to works by Charlaine Harris or Laurel K. Hamilton, Frost novels are examples of what is known as "kitchen sink fantasy" where different types of paranormal elements such as vampires, werewolves, ghosts, zombies and fairies coexist.
