The Price Guide to the Occult by Leslye Walton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Lots of promise but it ended up being rather predictable. Still, this could be a great vacation read!
The opening leads readers to think this might be a Practical Magic-esque type book, an island that has many 'normal' people but also a family of witches, with power handed down generation to generation. It's one of those touristy islands, with quirky shops that attract off-islanders. Nor is one of the witches, working at an occult shop, when her long-gone mother publishes a book (the title of this one). And that's where "charming" ends. No spoilers, but clearly the author is a fan of Stephen King's earlier work.
