Come for the waffles. Stay for the magic.
Carlie McEwan loves many things.She loves being a witch. She loves her town of Halfway, NY—a tourist destination nestled on the shores of an Adirondack lake. Carlie loves her enormous familiar, Gus, who is twenty-five pounds of judgmental Maine Coon cat, and she positively worships her Grandmother, a witch of incredible power and wisdom. Carlie spends her days cooking at the finest—and only—real diner in town, and her life is a balance between magic and the mundane, just as she likes it.When a blonde stranger sits at the diner counter and calls her by name, that balance is gone. Major Pickford asks Carlie to lead him into the deepest shadows of the forest to find a mythical circle of chestnut trees, thought lost to forever to mankind. There are ghosts in the forest, and one of them cries out to Carlie across the years--Come find me.Like the forest shadows, danger can run deep. The threat is real, but Carlie’s magic is born of a pure spirit. With the help of Gus, and Gran, and a rugged cop who really does want to save the world, she’ll fight to bring a ghost home, and deliver justice to a murderer who hides in the cool, mysterious green of a forest gone mad with magic.

The circus came to Halfway, and they brought the weird.
When clowns, vampires, and corpses start piling up in town, Carlie has to break away from her boyfriend, Wulfric, to bring her witchy skills to the table- or grill, as the case may be. When the body of a young woman washes up in the lake, it unleashes a spiral of mystery that will bring Carlie, Gran, and Wulfric into a storm of magical warfare. Spells will fly. Curses will rain. Amidst it all, Carlie will make waffles, protect her town, and find out if a man from the distant past can join her in happy ever after. With love and honor at stake, Carlie has no peer.


First off, I’d like to take a moment to praise Terry’s writing style. He’s very descriptive but it’s not overwhelming. Second, he lets Carlie be a super real girl, despite being a witch. He lets her make waffles and eat fried food.  Example: “I was shoving somewhere near a pound of funnel cake into my mouth and trying not to choke on the fine powdered sugar that tumbled from each glistening loop of dough like an avalanche.” Have you ever heard such a perfect sentence? Didn’t think so. And now I want funnel cake.
Carlie is such an admirable character and the tone of this story is super cool. Sure, Carlie is a witch, BUT it’s not taboo like we usually see in paranormal romances. Town people ask her for favors, and it works for them both.
One of my favorite characters in this series is Brendan, the librarian. He’s such a cute character, helpful, and he’s the LIBRARIAN. Aka, he likes books, like us.
This series has got suspense, a little romance, action, and some heebie jeebies! I don’t want to give too much away but there are quite a few paranormal creatures in this, and Terry spins such an interesting plot for us.
I loved this series, and look forward to more Carlie (hopefully) in the future! Happy reading!
