Synopsis: A place of history, secrets…and witchcraft.
Devin Lyle has recently returned to the Salem area, but her timing couldn’t be worse. Soon after she moved into the eighteenth-century cabin she inherited from her great-aunt Mina—her “crazy” great-aunt, who spoke to the dead—a woman was murdered nearby.
Craig Rockwell—known as Rocky—is a new member of the Krewe of Hunters, the FBI’s team of paranormal investigators. He never got over finding a friend dead in the woods. Now another body’s been found in those same woods, not far from the home of Devin Lyle. And Devin’s been led to a third body—by…a ghost?
Her discovery draws them both deeper into the case and Salem’s rich and disturbing history. Even as the danger mounts, Devin and Rocky begin to fall for each other, something the ghosts of Mina and past witches seem to approve of. But the two of them need every skill they possess to learn the truth—or Devin’s might be the next body in the woods…
The Hexed by Heather Graham is a deadly game of cat and mouse. The murder or murderers are harder to catch. No DNA evidence and the timelines between each murder doesn’t make sense. A young woman has returned back home only to find a dead body in the woods by her house. Devin lives in her aunt’s house. An older woman who practiced Wiccan and was kind to everyone she met. In The Hexed, Devin is lead to a dead body by a ghost. She then ends up flagging down a Fed using her hockey stick. I could only imagine the face of Rocky as he sees Devin. They call the police and it turns out the body may connect to a case Rocky was involved in back in high school. Yet the facts are not adding up. The why, and who aren’t answered until the ending. I liked that most about this novel. Heather Graham combines suspense, romance, and humor all into one action-packed read.
