A Potion to Die ForLet me start by saying that you have to be a mite touched in the head if you want to spend a day in my shoes. Nobody wants that. Trust me.

The thing is it’s not a bad life. Not hardly. It’s just…unusual, seeing as how I’m a white witch. An empath (I can feel what others are feeling) and healer who uses my abilities and magical potions to help ensure that locals and tourists alike have a fighting chance at a healthy mind, body, heart and soul.

I’ve gained a bit of a reputation around here (here being Hitching Post, Alabama—the official wedding capital of the South) as the go-to witch for curing what ails. From creating love potions to fixing stomach aches, people come to me for help.

But when I found a dead man in The Little Shop of Potions, my potion shop, I found myself in the strange position of asking other people for help, and was surprised at who stepped up. Of course my best friends and family came to my aid—they’re nothing if not loyal—but I was a little taken aback at the assistance of my (twice) ex-fiancé and my nemesis… But can I truly trust them?

Like I said, my life’s a little unusual. But one thing’s for sure. It ain’t boring.
