Book Review → Would-Be Witch

would be witchTitle: Would-Be Witch
Author: Kimberly Frost
Series: Southern Witch
Publication Date: February 03rd, 2009

Synopsis: 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.

Violet must accept the ugly realities of her existence… and try to stay alive.
