Hey readers! Happy Thanksgiving week! I’m grateful for so many things this year, and my new series is one of the them. The Full Moon Mysteries by Cate Conte debuts in July 2020, and I just got the new cover. Isn’t it a beauty?
I think they did a fantastic job, and the detail in the crystal shop window is so cool. I had to show my crystal lady and she loved it too. I don’t have the official cover copy yet, but here’s a short synopsis I shared with my publisher:
Violet Mooney is a 32-year-old witch—who has no idea she’s a witch. At least, until her life is turned upside down when a disagreeable town official is found dead, strangled with Violet’s favorite scarf, in the neighborhood courtyard. After the two had an argument in front of half the town. In the chaos that follows, Violet not only finds herself a suspect in a murder, but is also reunited with some long-lost family members, who have a big secret to share with her. They also have a job for her, if she’s willing.
In the days that follow, Violet has to clear her name in the mortal world–with no magical help–but also face the truth of her heritage, and accept that she has to assume a powerful role in a world she never even knew existed.
I’m so jazzed for this series – I’ve always been obsessed with witches (even before I went to college in Salem, Mass. – and I am completely obsessed with crystals. So this is the perfect match for me. I can’t wait to share the book with you next year.
Meanwhile, what do you think of the cover? Tell me below in the comments!
