Title: Witch's Moonstone Locket
Twenty-three-year-old Jancie Sadler was out of the room when her mother died, and her heart still longs for their lost goodbye. Aching to ease her sorrow, Aunt Starla gives Jancie a diary that changes her entire life. In entries from the 1930s, her great grandmother revealed how she coped with her own painful loss by seeking out a witch from nearby Coon Hollow Coven. The witch wore the griever’s moonstone locket, which allowed whoever could unlock its enchantment to talk with the dead.
Determined to find that locket, Jancie goes to the coven’s annual carnival held in her small southern Indiana town of Bentbone. This opposes her father’s strict rule: stay away from witches. But she’s an adult now and can make her own decisions. She meets Rowe McCoy, the kind and handsome witch who wears the moonstone. He agrees to let her try to open the locket, but they’re opposed by High Priestess Adara and her jealous desire to possess him. Desperate for closure with her mother, Jancie persists and cannot turn away from a perilous path filled with magic, romance, and danger.

I loved this book! What an amazing journey Marsha A. Moore takes us on! Jancie is struggling after her mother’s death. When she is given an old diary from her great-grandmother, she reads it with great interest. It details how her great-grandmother dealt with a painful loss by seeking out a witch. The witch wore the moonstone locket that when unlocked it gives the opener the chance to talk with the dead. This is how she meets Rowe, a handsome witch, who currently is in possession of the moonstone. Jancie is determined to open the stone and find closure with her mother. An evil and powerful witch priestess, is just as determined to keep Jancie from doing that. She wants Rowe for herself so she wants to keep Jancie away from him at all costs.
The Witch’s Moonstone Locket is a captivating story of love, loss, and healing. Good versus evil. Although it started out slow, it does pick up and I was glued to finishing it. The characters are interesting and I really felt like I could be friends with them. Marsha A. Moore does a great job of all the details. The scenes are vivid and I really felt everything going on with the characters. From love and sadness to pain and hate, I felt it all.
I highly recommend this book. The story is very bewitching-pun intended, and I truly enjoyed reading it. There are additional books in A Coon Hollow Coven Tale series and I am eager to read them. If you are a fan of fantasy romance stories, then look no further Witch’s Moonstone Locket is your next book!
