If you’re gonna buy a spell, go to someone legit. Bargain spells? Well, you get what you pay for… 

When hapless Roberta comes to Portland hedgewitch Holly asking for help with a botched spell, Holly stumbles into the spell’s trap as well. Her best bet: find the witch who created the spell. In the middle of a snowstorm.

And in the process, figure out why Roberta’s boss scares her so much…

A new story in the spellbinding Hedgewitch urban fantasy series by the author of the Nikki Ashburne Ghosted stories.
