Welcome to Everlasting, Maine, where there's no such thing as normal.
Charlotte Fenchurch knows that, which is why she's not that surprised when a very special book of magic falls into her hands at the library where she works. As a fledgling witch, owning her own grimoire is a dream come true. But there’s something... mysterious about the book she just can’t figure out.
Leopard shifter Walker Black knows what's odd about the book. It’s full of black magic and so dangerous that it could destroy the world. Good thing the Fraternal Order of Light has sent him to Everlasting to recover it and put it into safe storage. If he has to, he'll even take the witch who owns it into custody.
That is until he meets Charlotte and realizes she's not out to watch the world burn. She's sweet and kind and wonderful. Suddenly, protecting her is all he wants to do. Well, that and kiss her some more. But dark forces seem determined to get their hands on the book, making Charlotte their target, and Walker worries that he won't be able to protect her from them - or the organization he works for.
Can Walker and Charlotte survive the onslaught of danger? Or is that just "witchful" thinking?
Loved this new story by Kristen Painter! I didn't listen to it in order with the rest of the series and didn't feel I missed anything -great as a standalone novel. I wasn't certain 'whodunnit' until the end -great twists and turns! I had to go back and listen to the entire story again because the ending threw all of the characters into a new light - I wanted to see the pieces of their characters that I might have missed. Great character building in such a short novel! I love Nocturne Falls, but Charlotte and Walker won my heart. Will definitely listen to it again!

I love Kristen Painter’s Nocturne Falls and this falls short by a mile. The story is slow and the characters are boring.
Kristen Painter added another strong installment to the series, possibly the strongest. If you enjoy paranormal mysteries, listen to this entire series, you won’t regret it.
The mystery continues to be good, and the romance side is less obnoxious in this one but I'd prefer there to be more mystery than romance in a series billed as paranormal mystery. Cozy should not equate to a mystery saturaterd with romance.
