About the Book:
Psychic June Heal's homeopathic cure shop, A Charming Cure, is the most popular shop in the unusual little town of Whispering Falls, Kentucky.
Cures and trouble...
June is about to learn she has more than psychic abilities when she attends Hidden Hall, A Spiritualist University, leaving her shop in the hands of handsome sheriff Oscar Park.
Hidden Hall has an internal war between the Good-Siders and the Dark-Siders, putting June in the middle.
Hidden Hall is riddled with every type of spiritualist. Magic is lurking around every corner, even black-magic.
Unfortunately, the Ultimate Spell gets into the wrong hands. But it is only discovered after a few spiritualists go missing or end up poisoned to death.
And troubles double...
Madam Torres, June's crystal ball, reveals that A Charming Cure is in shambles along with the rest of Whistpering Falls.
Will June figure out who has the Ultimate Spell and stop them before they destroy the entire spiritualist community.
Thinking she doesn’t have any family, June meets her great aunt in this installment. She’s not sure what to think of her. June learns she is expected to go to school for people like her. Since she is older, she chooses to “fast track” and only do four days. Her mantra is “What can happen in four days?” Well a lot more than she thought!
This was a great story. I enjoyed the Hidden Hall school and its magical elements. June is an exceptional sleuth, even though she isn’t in her own surroundings. She did find it was a little more difficult when she didn’t really know anyone, but surprising her Aunt “helps her out”. She also learns that she has more abilities than she thought and a lot to learn.
I liked the dark side and the good side of the spiritual community, and the sisters we got to meet. Exciting that they are now a part of Whispering Falls. The small community of Whispering Falls is starting to grow and exciting that there are new shops to be had.
