When evil rises one clumsy witch must save the world. Cassie Black inherits a sentient coffee-house, complete with an inter-dimensional portal and a side of ancient curse from her great-aunt Ophelia. When Cassie attends the funeral, she discovers the Pacific Northwest town is a haven for supernatural beings. Ophelia’s death is suspicious and her lawyer is poisoned.
Up to her neck in mysteries, and weighed down with a mysterious curse, Cassie hunts for the murderer. There are many unusual suspects, a tall, dark and annoying detective keeps getting in her way, and a seductive warlock offers his assistance.
Will Cassie catch the villain before he kills again? Can she protect the portal and still free herself from the curse? Will Sid, her snarky cat familiar, convince her to play dirty with the boys?
