Money, beauty, power, and love -- the youngest members of the Magnolia League have it all. Some may call them lucky, but the truth is they're charmed. Armed with spells, potions, and conjures from the powerful Buzzard family, the Magnolias have bought their luck...at a price.
Ensconced in the League's headquarters on Habersham street, golden girl Hayes Anderson would never dream of leaving Savannah, where there's no problem that can't be solved with a cup of Swamp Brew tea. But when danger lurks and family secrets are unearthed, Hayes learns that magic can't fix everything.
Across town at an old mansion on Forsyth Park, recent California transplant Alexandria Lee is on a quest to free her mother's spirit from a hoodoo spell. As dark magic sweeps through Savannah's historic squares and misty backwaters, will Hayes and Alex have the strength to save the people they love -- and themselves?
