Description

This is a spooky, electrifying love story. Amy Goodnight's family are far from normal. She comes from a long line of witches, and grew up surrounded by benevolent spirits and kitchen spells. All fairly harmless, but Amy can't wait to get to college and escape the 'family business'. But things take a darker turn when she and her sister Phin spend the summer looking after Aunt Hyacinth's ranch. Amy is visited by a midnight spectre who is clearly trying to send her a message. It seems that the discovery of an old grave on a neighbour's land has been the catalyst for an apparent ghost uprising. Aided by local friends and Ben, the handsome cowboy who just can't take his eyes off Amy, the sisters investigate. And they soon find that there's something strange and dangerous going on, deep in the heart of Texas...show more

Review quote

"Texas Gothic is really fantastic read ... This is definitely going on my re-read pile though and I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for a sequel. I'd recommend this to any YA paranormal fan who likes smart heroines, a good mystery and a hero to swoon over" -- Sarah Gibson Feeling Fictional "Perfect for a teenager looking for a read, this gripping gothic tale is a winner" -- Jo Milne South Wales Argusshow more
