SOME PRACTICAL MAGIC
Author and witch Cassandra Hathorne would much rather participate in book signings than hunt for a husband. Despite her mother's wishes that she settle down with a nice male witch, her last foray in that department ended in disaster. After all, who could love a man called Mortician?
Horror writer Mirek "Mick" Sandor is retiring from after this last book. On his final book tour, he meets Cassandra, whose writing he's admired for years. Her beauty and thoughtfulness more than compensate for Mick's puzzling allergic reaction to her catlike business manager, Endora.
Kuna excels with this modern-day fantasy of witchcraft, murder and love. With a budding romance, the mysterious feline Endora and a serial killer intent on capturing Mick's attention, this is sure to be one hell of a book tour. (Oct., 188 pp., $13.75)
