Amy (Amaryllis) Goodnight has always accepted that the world is not always what it seems. She comes from a very “eccentric” family of potion-brewers, crystal-gazers, psychics, and more. Amy has always defended and protected her family by being the “buffer” between her good-magic-practicing family members and the “real” world. However, while ranch sitting for her Aunt Hyacinth in the scorching Texas summer, Amy will have to confront her own fears and doubts about the supernatural and uncover the secrets of a murder most foul in the San Saba Mine hundreds of years ago.
From La Llorona to Sonic cherry limeades, this novel does an excellent job at encapsulating the Texas experience while delivering a fun, spooky, things-go-bump-in-the-night atmosphere that readers who are fans of paranormal adventure and romance will enjoy.
Texas Gothic was a fantastically fun read. I definitely recommend it for late-night summer reading (and if you are able to make some microwave s’mores to go with it–so much the better!). And it goes without saying that I am BEYOND excited that Rosemary Clement-Moore will be attending TLA this year!!!!!!
