Three plantations. Two wishes. One ancient curse.

All her life, Barrie Watson has been a virtual prisoner in the house where she lives with her shut-in mother. When her mother dies, Barrie promises to put some mileage on her stiletto heels. But she finds a new kind of prison at her aunt’s South Carolina plantation instead—a prison guarded by an ancient spirit who long ago cursed one of the three founding families of Watson Island and gave the others magical gifts that became compulsions.

Stuck with the ghosts of a generations-old feud and hunted by forces she cannot see, Barrie must find a way to break free of the family legacy. With the help of sun-kissed Eight Beaufort, who knows what Barrie wants before she knows herself, the last Watson heir starts to unravel her family’s twisted secrets. What she finds is dangerous: a love she never expected, a river that turns to fire at midnight, a gorgeous cousin who isn’t what she seems, and very real enemies who want both Eight and Barrie dead.

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @
Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~. It’s a chance to share News; a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

 

Last Week on the blog

So, I was able to post just one review this past week. I had something urgent come up that took me away half of the week, plus other commitments so I wasn’t able to get my posts ready. I participated in an English summer camp for Japanese high school students and it was so much fun. The kids were really adorable and really bright. By the time the camp was over, I had a bad case of separation anxiety from my kids (the ones assigned to be in my group). This past week, I was able to experience teaching basic English to older people. It was a bit different from the summer camps I’ve attended because it had a more class-set-up kind of thing going on. But both instances have been really good and experiences for me.
