Marcus Richmond might be the quiet one in the Winchester witches’ world, but that doesn’t mean he has nothing to say. Between renovations at his stable – and plans for a bright future with a certain feisty witch – Marcus has his hands full. Things get even more hectic when local FBI Agent Landon Michaels discovers blood in Marcus’ loft and a series of strange occurrences and thefts plague Hemlock Cove. It’s a holiday weekend and the weather – and tempers – are running hot as tourists descend on the popular vacation haven to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday. All Marcus has to do to be a part of it is figure out what’s going on … oh, and keep Aunt Tillie out of trouble when she decides someone is stealing from her special field. Marcus knows what he wants and he’s determined to get it. He just needs to solve a mystery and make sure Aunt Tillie doesn’t take matters into her own hands when no one is looking. Note: This is a 27,000-word short set in the Wicked Witches of the Midwest world. It is set between Charms & Witchdemeanors and The Trouble With Witches.
