Texas Gothic Paperback
This is a spooky, electrifying love story. Amy Goodnight's family are far from normal. She comes from a long line of witches, and grew up surrounded by benevolent spirits and kitchen spells.
All fairly harmless, but Amy can't wait to get to college and escape the 'family business'.
But things take a darker turn when she and her sister Phin spend the summer looking after Aunt Hyacinth's ranch.
Amy is visited by a midnight spectre who is clearly trying to send her a message.
It seems that the discovery of an old grave on a neighbour's land has been the catalyst for an apparent ghost uprising.
Aided by local friends and Ben, the handsome cowboy who just can't take his eyes off Amy, the sisters investigate. And they soon find that there's something strange and dangerous going on, deep in the heart of Texas...

Review by wyvernfriend
The first time Amy Goodnight meets Ben whose family owns att the property around her aunt's ranch, she's in her underwear trying to cope with something else that has gone wrong. The two of them fall into a love/hate relationship. He has issues with her family and their strangeness and she'd like to find someone who can accept that sometimes her family just are that strange. When an old grave is discovered, she has to bring some long-dormant skills to bear, however this opens a can of worms and things just keep getting stranger.I liked this one, Amy is very much the conciliator and one who keeps the truth from being too known. The family witchcrafting is mostly secret and kept that way by disbelief. I liked how it was handled. The relationship was well handled as well but there were times that I wasn't sure where the two were going with it all.Entertaining, light read. Interesting world building. Would like to read more set in this world.
