From Witch's Moonstone Locket: A Coon Hollow Coven Tale

Rowe collected the locket, his face now drawn and solemn as he looked at Jancie and said, “Promise me you’ll come by during the carnival when we’ll have time to talk without interruptions.”
Adara’s sharp laughter trailed off in the blare of a horn from a new off-road Chevy pickup that whipped past kicking up dust and gravel.
Jancie sucked in deep breath. She’d been discovered talking with witches by her resentful ex-boyfriend, Harley Hincks. Her dad would know before sundown.
The wind that blasted them after the truck passed lifted the waterfall of Adara’s black wavy hair styled to hang over one eye. A long, jagged scar across the high cheekbone marred her otherwise beautiful face.
The woman’s odd reaction and appearance made a chill pass along Jancie’s spine. She glanced into Rowe’s eyes, wanting to promise she’d return. Instead, she scurried across the road toward the safety of the Federal Bank.

Witch's Moonstone Locket
Genre: Paranormal romance
Description:
Twenty-three-year-old Jancie Sadler was out of the room when her mother died, and her heart still longs for their lost goodbye. Aching to ease her sorrow, Aunt Starla gives Jancie a diary that changes her entire life. In entries from the 1930s, her great grandmother revealed how she coped with her own painful loss by seeking out a witch from nearby Coon Hollow Coven. The witch wore the griever’s moonstone locket, which allowed whoever could unlock its enchantment to talk with the dead. 
Determined to find that locket, Jancie goes to the coven’s annual carnival held in her small southern Indiana town of Bentbone. This opposes her father’s strict rule: stay away from witches. But she’s an adult now and can make her own decisions. She meets Rowe McCoy, the kind and handsome witch who wears the moonstone. He agrees to let her try to open the locket, but they’re opposed by High Priestess Adara and her jealous desire to possess him. Desperate for closure with her mother, Jancie persists and cannot turn away from a perilous path filled with magic, romance, and danger.

Fascinating combination of elements. Chevy trucks. Witches. Federal Bank.

Jennifer Powell Reynolds said...

I'm guessing that her talking to witches isn't a good thing. Stupid ex-boyfriends always getting in the way. Great snippet. :)

Great description. I love the details, and the part about her father would know before sundown. (Gotta love small towns.)

Ooooh, this sounds interesting. Adara -- love that name, by the way -- sounds like a woman you don't want to cross and one full of danger and risks. I definitely want to see how this plays out. Sounds like a good novel, and right up my alley.
