Cursed - Lisa Childs

Lisa Childs

ISBN: 9780373009411

In Copper Creek, Michigan frightened Raven calls FBI agent Seth Hughes insisting she is in danger from Maria Cooper.  Seth rushes to the town knowing that whenever Cooper reads someone’s future they die very soon afterward.  The Fed questions Maria, as the only suspect in a series of homicides.

To his astonishment as he arrived in Copper Creek believing she is the stone cold killer, Maria persuades him that she is not a serial killing witch hunter and in fact fears the psychopath targing her too; even as she poorly conceals her fear from the agent that he might be this maniac.  Teaming up, Maria and Seth seek the deadly culprit while also starting to fall in love.  At the same time her worried sisters (see Haunted, Damned and Persecuted), whom she fled from in order to keep them safe, search for her.

The first Witch Hunt tale in almost eight years will thrill fans of the siblings.  The characters are top-rate especially the lead couple and the action never slows down until the final confrontation.  Cursed is an enjoyable urban romantic fantasy.
