A little magic can go a long way -- to royally screwing up a girl's life! Mara is having the worst month of her life. At least, that's what her tarot cards tell her and they've never been wrong. Before she knows it, she's evicted from her apartment, bounced from her job and banned from Beverly Hills.

When the cards start predicting her imminent demise, she uses a little magic to make her world right.
Suddenly, an aunt she's never met dies, leaving Mara as her sole heir. But when Mara moves into her inherited home, she discovers Aunt Tillie never moved out. She's still one pissed-off old lady, even post-mortem, and she blames Mara's magical meddling for her death.

When Mara accidentally releases a demon and awakens the spirit of the most powerful witch in history, Tillie's ready to kill her. Literally. It's the only way she can think of to save the girl from herself.

The witch and the demon, however, have other plans for Mara.

Highly recommended for fun but scary reading on dark, stormy nights."                                               -- Bonnie Turner, Down the Memory Hole
