Things are going great for Rowen Greensmith. She and her boyfriend Eric have just moved in together. Her paper, The Lainswich Inquirer, is doing better than anyone could have predicted. The town still distrusts her witchy family, but you can’t have it all. Overall, Rowan is happy. Too happy. Life couldn’t possibly stay that perfect for long. The unexpected arrival of Rowen’s estranged mother throws a wrench into all of that. Tiffany Greensmith simply shows up, ready to pick up their relationship like she hasn’t been missing for the majority of Rowen’s life. As if that wasn’t bad enough, there’s also been a recent string of murders in Lainswich. It’s the most serious crime spree their small town has ever seen. The Lainswich Inquirer has its work cut out for it. Of course, this being Lainwich, things are bound to get more complicated. As per usual, Rowen gets mixed up trying to solve the crime she’s reporting. Was it even avoidable this time, though? The more Rowen looks into these murders, the more concerning it gets – and the more certain Rowen is that the murderer might be someone she knows. Novella (approx. 40,000 words). Third Volume of the "Lainswich Witches" Mystery Series. It is a standalone (reading prior or future volumes not required to enjoy the book but would enhance the story, no cliffhanger).
