WITCH’S MOONSTONE LOCKET
Coon Hollow Coven Tales, book 1
by Marsha A. Moore
Reading copy: personal purchase.
Marsha A. Moore’s novel, WITCH’S MOONSTONE LOCKET, the first in a new series, incidentally, called Coon Hollow Coven Tales, concerns Jancie a young woman who wants to go to the coon hollow coven festival, but there’s a problem…her father is intensely against the witches who host the festival. They keep to themselves, for the most part, living as if they were stuck in the 1930s, but still Jancie’s been brought up to avoid them—if her curiosity about them never died. After her mother dies, she (now in her twenties and living away from home) decides she’ll do what she damn well pleases and what she wants to do is sit down with the owner of the infamous moonstone locket, and use its power to say goodbye to her mother. Stubborn Jancie finds her way to the festival grounds where she encounters the handsome R0we, the owner of the Moonstone Locket.
She finds herself smitten with him, but there’s a problem (aside from the fact that he’s a witch): Coon Hollow Coven’s unscrupulous leader wants him too.
Jancie must embrace her birthright if she’s ever to find happiness.
WITCH’S MOONSTONE LOCKET is an intriguing story, laced with heartache, intrigue, mysterious. I found the pagan elements in the story, though suited to the story’s needs, closer to faithful to true Wiccan and pagan practices than most of the current crop of “paranormal romances starring witches” tend to be. And if you’ve read Ms. Moore’s books before you will recognize her signature style. Without spoiling anything, I hope, fantasy fans will enjoy Rowe’s familiar and (no spoiler) the…shall we say the atmosphere of his house? If you’d like to check it out, WITCH’S MOONSTONE LOCKET is available at Amazon in kindle format and paperback.
