The Twilight Before ChristmasBook - 2003
Kate Drake, a well-traveled bestselling novelist, is one of seven sisters--seven very special sisters who happen to be witches. When she returns to her small coastal hometown before Christmas to attend her sister's wedding, she decides to settle there. Discovering a charming but run-down and spooky historic house, she decides to open a bookstore and sets about clearing it out when an earthquake occurs, knocking down part of the wall and revealing a burial crypt. Intrigued but cautious, she turns to the handsome carpenter she hired to help renovate the house. But Kate begins to sense that neither the carpenter nor the law nor any otherworldly power can help her reign in the evil that was released from the crypt. She will have to summon all of her supernatural power--and that of her six sisters--to destroy the sinister force that is casting a dark shadow over her hometown.
The Twilight Before Christmas is a darkly charming romance, reminiscent of the holiday works of Jude Deveraux and Linda Howard.

A black scowl settled over Old Man Mar's face. His craggy brows drew together in a straight, thick line. He made a single sound of disgust and spat on the ground. The old man delivered his yearly kick right to Danny's shin and shuffled off, muttering something about tomatoes. Danny howled and jumped around, holding his injured shin. The staff swung around in a wide circle so that the participants had to break ranks and run for safety. Matt kept walking straight past Inez and the outraged look on her face. Kate met him at the stable, lifting her face for his kiss, while Inez followed Danny, giving him her annual Christmas lecture on behavior. "All in all, Katie, I'd say this was a very satisfactory pageant."---Matt Granite
