Circle of Five

Now that her children are grown, her lout of an ex-husband is gone, and her herbal remedy business has taken off, Cass Shipton is free to enjoy the simple comforts of her grown-up life. There's her cozy Cape Cod home overlooking Plymouth Harbor. Her scruffy distainful pooch. And the strong connection she shares with four other ordinary women who get together to sip tea, trade stories, cast the odd spell and work a bit of magic. Just your typical, everyday Wiccans who work at the local library, carpool the kids, and run the vitamin store at the mall.

But Cass's idyllic, small-town life changes after she bumps carts at the local supermarket with a stranger in a green cap. Beneath the man's cheery smile and twinkling eyes, Cass senses something sinister...a foreboding that leads her to the haunting case of a missing boy. Certain that something must be done, Cass turns to her friends to help her find the truth, no matter where it leads. And when another boy disappears, the circle of five bands together in a dangerous undertaking that will call upon all their powers and test the bonds of friendship as never before...

Wickedly funny, harrowingly suspenseful, and as deliciously warm-hearted as a girls' night in, Circle of Five is a joyful celebration of the kind of friendship that makes a magic all of its own.
