In a charming wrap-up to this series, curses are broken, lovers united and everybody lives happily ever after. With a Salem, Mass., setting and witches involved, you might not think this is a fine porch-swing-on-a-sunny-afternoon book, but it is.
The Perkins family has been exposed as evil manipulators, not inheritors of evil witch powers, and are either dead or imprisoned, so talk of the curse should end. But old beliefs die hard, and members of the older generation of the Corwin family still believe they're cursed to lose all in love. When Lauren Perkins, who had nothing to do with the rest of the clan, shows up to get the family manse ready for sale, she is not warmly welcomed -- with one exception.
Jason Corwin has fond memories of the secret romance they shared one summer as teens, and he would definitely be up for helping her with the house. The younger Corwins are in favor of the romance, but the older men are not. Then things start to go wrong with repairs, misunderstandings arise between Jason and Lauren and the old rift between the families intrudes. Will the weight of the past sink hopes of present-day happiness? (HQN, Oct., 384 pp., $7.99)
