Constance Campbell has made a few questionable decisions in the run-up to her fortieth birthday. So in a way, moving two thousand miles away from everything she’s ever known makes perfect sense.
Creel Creek, Virginia is the last place either of her ex-husbands would ever think to look for her. What better place to hide from her humiliations than a town too small to warrant a mention on a map?
Laid off, and recently divorced from husband number two, this former workaholic moves in with her estranged—and very strange—grandmother.
A grandmother who informs Constance that she comes from a long line of powerful witches. And on the day she hits the big 4-0, she’ll come into her powers.
It turns out that she’s not the only paranormal person in town. Under the sleepy surface, the small town is teeming with supernatural beings.
When Constance finds the town’s resident vampire dead, things go from surreal to scary. The local sheriff is convinced that a killer is lurking in the shadows, hunting anyone with supernatural abilities…including witches like her.
He’s not wrong.
Can Constance learn enough magic to save herself and Creel Creek from this unknown foe?

Tessa Randolph is feeling defeated. On the outs with her boyfriend and suddenly without a job, she's scrambling to pay the rent. She doesn’t exactly have the kind of life she wants.
Tessa needs a change.
And the ability to afford the wet food her cat Pepper thinks she deserves at every meal.
Against her better judgement but without a better offer, Tessa takes a job from one of the scariest of bosses—her mother, who has a deadly sharp tongue.
And just like that, she learns that the life insurance agency at the edge of Mist River isn’t what it seems to be. Plus, Cheryl Randolph isn’t simply the sharp-tongued, overly critical mom Tessa thought she was. She’s a grim reaper. One of many people tasked with escorting souls into the afterlife.
And now Tessa is one too.
She wasn't expecting her life change to involve so much Death.
Tessa intends to simply kill it in her new career. But, running late on her second day of work, she doesn’t make it in time for her neighbor’s death. And now his soul is missing. Apparently, that's not a good thing when you're in the soul-collecting business.
Now, her mom-boss thinks Tessa can’t cut it. Which is just so typical. And she doesn’t seem to be telling Tessa everything about an important death in both of their pasts.
Not only that, but apparently, if Tessa doesn’t find the missing spirit fast enough, its absence will rip some kind of apocalyptic hole in space and time. Or something like that. It’s all a bit vague.
Not that Tessa read the job manual line-by-line. Who has time for that?
What’s worse, the police think Tessa might've committed the murder.
Can Tessa prove her innocence? Can she get her mom off her back and find the wayward soul before time runs out? And will Pepper get that expensive can of tuna she's sure she deserves? Find out today!
