Sisters of the Craft Series Spotlight


In the Air TonightFour centuries ago, in a small Scottish village, three baby girls escaped the wrath of a witch hunter. Today, one young woman will learn about her secret history, her heart’s destiny, and the sisters she never knew she had…

With her blue-black hair and dark eyes, Raye Larsen has never fit in with the Scandinavian community of New Bergin, Wisconsin. Being adopted is part of the reason she feels like an outsider, but what really sets Raye apart is her ability to see dead people. Everywhere.

She’s learned to keep her visions to herself . . . until she stumbles onto the ghost of a murder victim who needs Raye’s help. Enter Bobby Doucet, a distractingly handsome homicide detective who has been tracking a killer all the way from New Orleans. Could this be the break in his case he’s been looking for all along?

Meanwhile, the deeper Raye gets involved with the case—and with Bobby—the closer she comes to unlocking the mystery of her own origins. What she discovers about herself could destroy everything she knows . . . and everyone she loves. Is finding the truth worth the risk?

Filled with dark magic, dazzling romance, and dire suspense, this is the first book in a thrilling new series by New York Times bestselling author Lori Handeland.addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16Kim Talks TomesTAG

In the Air tonight is a great start to the Sisters of the Craft trilogy. The world building and character development are well done and kept me engaged and wanting to read more. The books focuses on Raye – she was found naked and alone along the side of a road as a baby. Her adoptive family was concerned when she started talking to invisible people. What they didn’t know was that she could see ghosts and was talking to them! She hides this ability because of her adoptive father wanted to give her back because of her “weirdness”.

Later in life, Raye is a teacher and Bobby is the detective investigating a possible serial murder. They meet when she runs into the street and she tries to help the detective solve his case. They connect, romantically, talk about a hot and intense pairing!! I love how well these two characters connect and how hot and steamy their sex scenes were!

Raye finds out about her actual parentage. The story then becomes intense – filled with magic, passion, evil, suspense, and heritage. The way this story is written reminds me of the TV show Ghost Whisperer. If you like that show, then you should enjoy the beginning of this trilogy. I know I can’t wait to read the rest of the books and find out about Raye’s sisters.fourstars

Heat of the MomentA spell that tore three sisters apart is broken four hundred years later, when the magic in their blood reunites them. Now, one of them will discover her gift—and reignite a love long thought lost…

Flame-haired Becca Carstairs was born to be a veterinarian. Since childhood, her affinity for animals has been special, and her healing touch nothing short of magic. But only Becca knows the truth—that she alone can hear the creatures’ voices. She’s always trusted her sixth sense… until a string of missing pets, an attempted murder, and a face from her past converge into one explosive mystery, with her at its center.

Is haunted Owen McAllister, the boy who broke her heart ten years ago, related to the sinister crimes that have peaceful Three Harbors, Wisconsin, on its guard? Or is his reappearance part of the answer to questions that have troubled her all her life? As Becca delves into her strange heritage, she’ll have to fight for her life… and the man she will always love.

In the second book of this spellbinding new series, New York Times bestselling author Lori Handeland delivers breath-taking danger, desire, and the dark heart of magic. addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16Kim Talks TomesTAGAs the second book in the Sisters of the Craft trilogy, Heat of the Moment reveals that Raye is a triplet – all have different colored hair but are identical. Becca is the second sister and she is a veterinarian with magical powers towards animals. She had a great family life and never knew that she was adopted. Owen is a wounded war vet and Becca’s high school love. He returns home with his dog and reconnect with Becca.

The sisters are all in danger because of evil. The prophecy says that all must join together and fight evil. Personally, I hated the way Becca acted when she found out that she was adopted. I understand that she was hurt, but her cruelty was harsh. Also. I felt like her and Owen’s relationship ran hot and cold. She wanted him and then she didn’t. But, even though I wasn’t a fan of Becca’s character, I still loved the story and the way the author wrote it. Overall, I find most middle books of a trilogy to not be as strong as the first and third, but I still enjoyed this story.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Smoke on the WaterAbandoned beneath a black willow tree on the banks of a northern Wisconsin creek, Willow Black spent her entire childhood in foster care.

Willow’s psychiatrist, Dr. Sebastian Crane, works hard to resist his feeling that he and Willow are destined to be together while also working to convince her that strange occurrences aren’t the result of witchcraft… until he is thrown into the middle of a storm of supernatural events that can’t be explained any other way… addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16 Kim Talks TomesTAG

As the third and final book of the Sisters of the Craft trilogy, Smoke on the Water features Willow. As the blonde triplet, she has had a harsh life in foster care. She sees visions through water and that landed her under the care of a psychiatrist. Sebastian is the administrator of the facility that Willow is in and they instantly connect when she sees him. He is the one from her visions and dreams! They are destined to fight evil, together, along with the sisters she doesn’t know exist.

This was a powerful and intense ending to the trilogy! The author did a fantastic job of wrapping up the story of the three sisters and their coming together. Parts of this story ran parallel with the second book and it was fun to see that in this one. Sebastian’s twist was unexpected! I have to say that this is my favorite of all of the books! The epilogue is the best part of the entire thing. Family reunions and happily ever afters make for a great ending.

Overall, this is a great trilogy that is worth the time to read.
