Hemlock Cove is bustling with activity. FBI Agent Landon Michaels has officially moved in with his girlfriend Bay Winchester, Mrs. Little is planning an impromptu festival and there’s a new witch in town. The question is: Is Scarlet Darksbane a real witch? Bay is in the middle of all of it. She has her hands full thanks to her imminent purchase of The Whistler … and the fact that Landon and Thistle seem to be butting heads while sharing the same roof. Thistle isn’t long for the guesthouse, but the weeks of overlap before she moves promise to try Bay’s patience. Things only get worse when one of the renaissance festival performers is found dead in the town square and Bay and her wacky cohorts find themselves in the middle of another messy mystery. The murder has ritual overtones, and Bay is worried that everyone will start pointing fingers at the real witches if a suitable suspect isn’t found. That’s only one of her problems, though. It seems the new witch – who seems to be focused on entrenching herself in Hemlock Cove as fast as possible – might also be a suspect. She’s definitely on Aunt Tillie’s radar, and the elderly Winchester is determined to uncover all of Scarlet’s secrets. It’s up to Bay, Landon, Aunt Tillie and the rest of the motley crew to figure out the truth and head off a killer before another victim falls prey to a demented fiend with murder on his or her mind. The big question is: Will Bay survive to uncover the truth or will she be the next victim?

Charlie Rhodes has a new life and it’s not exactly what she thought it would be.
She’s psychic, telekinetic and eager to learn from her knowledgeable co-workers at The Legacy Foundation. She’s also nervous, frightened and on edge … mostly because she’s exactly the sort of oddity the group is looking to study and she’s desperate to keep her secret from the very people who are searching for her.
When word comes down that a chupacabra may have been sighted in Texas – perhaps even killing a man in an old abandoned mining town – Charlie is eager to show her worth. She’s part of the first team that descends on Hooper’s Mill, and there’s definitely an air of danger lingering over the town.
Charlie can feel it. She can sense … something. It’s lurking in the town and watching. Unfortunately for Charlie, she can’t get a handle on whether she’s looking for a human or animal. She just knows that it’s dangerous … and it wants to kill anyone who crosses its path.
When one member of the team goes missing, Charlie realizes she’s running out of time to solve a mystery in the present that has ties to the past. All the while she’s trying to ensure her own future as the jaws of death – in the form of a mythical creature – snap at her heels.
It’s all hands on deck for another adventure, and this time the stakes might be so high not everyone survives.

Where there’s a witch, there’s a way! Where there’s a whole family of them, there’s trouble. Bay Winchester, editor of Hemlock Cove’s small weekly newspaper, thinks her small hamlet’s upcoming murder mystery weekend is going to be all about fun, food and frolicking. Instead, when another dead body is discovered in Hemlock Cove, things turn into murder, mayhem and migraines (the latter is mostly thanks to her family, of course). The body belongs to the town drunk – and no one can figure out who would want to kill him, or why. Bay’s investigation is stymied by her new boss, Brian Kelly, and her old flirtation, FBI agent Landon Michaels, both of whom seem to have more than interviews on their mind. When you couple that with her cousin Thistle’s obsession with making their Great-Aunt Tillie pay for the curse she recently put on them (you don’t want to know) and her cousin Clove’s conviction that she is not – no matter what the rest of the family says – a blabbermouth, Bay has her hands full. When the murder investigation takes a turn, though, a long-held Hemlock Cove secret is bound to be exposed. If it is, Bay may find herself in trouble – again – and this is the kind of trouble that she may not be able to find a way out of – even with Aunt Tillie’s help.

Twila Winchester isn’t used to being in charge but that’s exactly where she finds herself when her sisters leave town for a business convention.
Twila thinks everything is going to be fun and games even though she has one daughter, two nieces and one mischievous aunt to contend with. She’s focused on cooking and having a good time … until a roving troupe of renaissance performers make camp on the Winchester property and trouble starts brewing.
When the head of the group starts making predictions – and unfortunately gets left behind – Twila has her hands full. It seems Aunt Tillie doesn’t trust the new guest and she’s determined to turn the three younger Winchesters into investigative dynamos.
Twila is working on a limited timetable. She must solve a mystery involving some missing items, open her home to a stranger and crack down on Aunt Tillie’s “lying” classes as her aunt attempts to teach Bay, Clove and Thistle how to manipulate everyone in their paths.
Oh, and she has to do it all before Marnie and Winnie return to town.
No pressure, though.

Avery Shaw is living the dream … kind of.
She’s officially moved to her dream house and her boyfriend Eliot Kane is making her host a housewarming party to show off the new digs to her family. All is going well – other than the endless arguments over food and hiding from Avery’s family, of course – until one of Avery’s enemies comes calling.
Avery’s former boyfriend Jake Farrell broke up with Cara Carpenter weeks before but she’s still stalking him … and Avery in the process. When Cara turns up dead at a high-profile event, not only is Jake a suspect, but Avery and Eliot are, too.
The Michigan State Police wrestle the investigation from Jake, promptly turning Avery from the hunter to the hunted. The state police investigator assigned to the case is all up in Avery’s business – and Avery is cracking under the pressure even as she insists on covering the case, much to almost everybody’s chagrin.
From the stress associated with the new house, Grandpa’s constant naked visits to the pool, and Eliot’s insistence that Avery own up to something illegal, things are starting to get tense.
Avery is on her heels for a bit before starting to put the pieces together. When the truth comes out, though, the answers are welcome but the danger is not.
Can Avery survive to irritate everyone another day? Or will Michigan’s favorite reporter finally succumb to a mouth she can’t quite seem to control?

Bay Winchester is having a tough week. As the local editor of Hemlock Cove's only newspaper, she just happens to be present when a body is found in an area corn maze.

This wouldn't be a problem for a normal reporter, but since Bay is descended from a well-known line of actual witches, the town is understandably on edge. Between the suspicious townspeople, the befuddled police presence, and that random hot biker guy who may or may not have something to do with the murder -- Bay has her hands full. When you add the typical family problems, multiplying ghosts -- and one monster of a zit that she's sure came from her aunt's curse -- Bay is just struggling to make it through the week. Of course, when the killer sets his sights on Bay, things could get a whole lot worse.

Christmas is here but the Winchester witches aren’t exactly teeming with good cheer. Well, they are, but it’s not the sort of Christmas cheer Aunt Tillie wants waiting for her under this year’s tree.

Of course, since she’s Aunt Tillie, her dose of retribution comes in the form of her favorite holiday Christmas stories. For Bay and Landon, that means they’re shoved into A Witchmas Carol, one of Aunt Tillie’s favorite tales. That should mean hugs and happiness, right? Yeah, try toil and trouble instead. Bay and Landon have to work their way through memories of the past, guilt over the present and absolute terror when facing their future if they expect to come out the other side. To escape, they have to figure out exactly what Aunt Tillie wants … and she’s got a few tricks up her sleeve. So, it’s that time of the year. Things are about to get merry … and maybe a little messy … for the Winchesters. There’s no better time to hitch a ride on the mayhem sleigh.

Bay Winchester and Landon Michaels are looking forward to a quiet holiday. It seems someone else has other ideas. Hemlock Cove is buzzing with activity – and very little of it has to do with Thanksgiving. The town is christening a new wishing well – dedicated by Mrs. Little herself – and Landon and Bay are eager to attend the unveiling. In truth, Landon is in it for the doughnuts and hot chocolate, but Bay is dedicated to covering the event in the best possible way. In quick succession, weird things start happening around Hemlock Cove (yes, even weirder than normal). The town tutor is walking around with his own personal harem, there’re rumors that a woman is holding a Star Trek actor in her home a few blocks away and Mrs. Little is now the most popular woman in town. That’s on top of the fact that Bay is convinced she saw a human being flying over Aunt Tillie’s pot field and a pair of elderly Overlook guests can’t stop mauling each other in public places. Bay figures out what’s going on … and it all comes back to that wishing well. It seems Aunt Tillie wanted to teach Mrs. Little a lesson and it backfired (of course). It’s up to Bay, Landon and the rest of the Winchester family to stop the mayhem before it spreads, and to track down everyone who made a wish and force them to reverse it. It’s all hands on deck for another crazy adventure. And, along the way, they might just learn something about themselves … that is if they survive the madcap wishes and Mrs. Little’s wrath, of course.

Winter has hit Hemlock Cove – and not in a fun way. The cold weather is keeping most tourists out of town, which is just fine with the Winchester witches. They’re using the lull as a way to recharge and take a break – even if Aunt Tillie is causing her usual havoc. All that comes crashing down, though, when a large yacht is found abandoned in a nearby channel and there’s blood on the deck. For Bay, things go from bad to worse when local law enforcement is joined by a federal representative in the form of Landon Michaels – her former flirt partner and possible boyfriend. Landon has come to town for more than just the case, though; he’s here to make amends. And even if Bay is ready to accept his apology, that doesn’t mean her family is. Landon may be here to win her back, but he’s also a man on a mission – and that mission is truth. He wants to know the Winchester family secret – whether Bay is ready to share it or not. Landon isn’t the only visitor in Hemlock Cove, either. Thistle’s father – Ted Proctor – is also in town. He says he’s there to buy some property for a business consortium – but he’s having secret meetings and hiding a bevy of truths from his daughter and her busybody cousins – something that sets the whole family on edge. When you couple that with the hot new handyman, the hipster snowboarders and Aunt Tillie’s rage about her wine closet being confiscated for a new furnace, it’s another fun-filled mystery for the Winchester witches and Hemlock Cove – as long as everyone can survive the snow, and the killer that hides in it, that is.
