Patti Ann Colt
A slave to regrets or bewitched by love?
A failed relationship and the trauma of witnessing a fatal accident force bestselling author, Gage Caldwell, home to the safest place he knows – Echo Falls, Texas. In a tailspin with his muse blocked, anxiety and guilt plague him. Avoiding his latest manuscript, Gage shifts his attention to sparring with his sexy neighbor over hexing black cats, Halloween decorations, and the haunted graveyard behind their houses.
Ruth Bennett continues to rebuild her self-esteem after a relationship gone bad. Doubting her men instincts, she’s put out by the angsty author next door. He skateboards at all hours of the night, lives out of boxes instead of unpacking, and he never seems to write, yet his killer blue eyes and bad boy attitude captivate her.
Forgetting past failures, Gage coaxes sweet Ruth from frenemies to tentative lovers, but their fragile faith in one another challenges their union. When the simplest lie is exposed between them, Ruth’s trust teeters in the balance. Gage must dig deep to save what’s meant to be – using any means necessary including pumpkin magic and the power of home and heart.
