The future queen awakens…

Newly single mother Stevie Lewis divides her time between raising Charlie, running a store with her best friend, and avoiding the meetings of her mother’s Beaufort Historic Society. Although her life has its challenges, it’s altogether average. Just the way she likes it.

When Vanessa, a ruthless dark witch, launches an attack against young Charlie, Stevie’s simple life derails, and her long-dormant powers awaken. A 300-year-old secret is exposed, revealing her destiny to one day rule the clandestine community of witches who hide in plain sight.

Now she must master her own magical powers before it’s too late. Because Vanessa’s on the warpath, and only Stevie can stop her.

 
The Coven by Chrissy Lessey (The Crystal Coast Series, #1)

Stevie is a newly single mother, a protective bear around her Autistic son, Charlie and vibrant shop owner. Small town life has its good and bad points, and although a special group within the town, Stevie has little use for the Beaufort Historic Society, which her mother is the leader…until the day evil comes to town and her young Charlie becomes the target for danger.

A runaway, driverless car is about to hit Charlie and in a feat of “magic,” not only does Stevie save her son, but she wished the car to stop and it did. From that moment on Stevie will enter a world of witches, witch wars and even find romance with an old friend who has come back to town, a friend with secrets of his own. An ancient secret is about to be exposed and Stevie, still reeling from the shock of being something ”other,” is about to find that Fate is at work once again, determined to turn her world upside down.

Seriously, how could Stevie not know who or what her mother and her quirky friends were? Is she dreaming? Ill? One thing for certain, her raw talent may be powerful, but Stevie has no idea how to hone her witchy skills. It will take practice, patience and time for Stevie to meet her full potential, but time is in short supply and the ultimate showdown is coming…then again, have you ever crossed a mother who would do anything to protect her child or a woman who needs to protect her heart?

THE COVEN by Chrissy Lessey is NOT a dark and brooding tale of blood and war. It is actually a sweet and light romance about a mother struggling to balance caring for her son and caring for her heart. That extra paranormal experience is the frosting on this delightful reading cake. I received this copy from Chrissy Lessey in exchange for my honest review.
