Being a witch with magic on the fritz does not bode well for Celeste, but Hollow Cove is all she knows and loves — even when she has to deal with finicky magic like a voyeuristic water elemental named Hokey trapped in the wall of her shower.

Being the runt of a litter of strong boys and lovely girls made family life hard for Booth. He left Hollow Cove as soon as he was old enough, and now he has a successful real estate business in the Mortal Realm. He has only one regret. He comes back to Hollow Cove every year on Halloween to spend twenty-four hours with the love of his life, Celeste. This year is different; Booth has laid down the law. If Celeste won’t return to the Mortal Realm with him, their relationship is over.
