Synopsis: A witch's spell great love may break
Aislinn never wants to see another doctor. Their painful and pointless treatments have done nothing to improve her rapidly deteriorating health. She hopes that the staff of Wiccan Haus can at least offer a change of scene, if not a return of a little of her former strength. She’s delighted to meet Punda, a masseuse, on her arrival and charmed by the cottage in the apple orchard where she will stay.
Dr. Hugo Peralta visits the island at the insistence of his boss. The distinguished brain surgeon is in desperate need of a respite before overwork makes him one of his own patients. He is surprised but pleased with the privacy and serenity of his cottage—across the orchard from Aislinn’s. An idyllic location on a magical island where love can blossom—if the Rowans can help the trio save Aislinn from whatever is killing her.
Review: An Apple Away is another thrilling installment in the multi-author series, The Wiccan Haus. Aislinn is wasting away due to a disease which no medical doctor can find the cause of nor a treatment for. She no longer has faith in the medical profession and books a stay at the Wiccan Haus for alternative methods of healing and relaxation. When she arrives, she meets Punda, a beautiful woman with a hidden wild side who is a Wiccan Haus employee, and Hugo, a man with his own secret. When the healers at the Wiccan Haus uncover the cause of Aislinn's illness, she is horrified. Can the love between Hugo, Aislinn, and Punda break the spell which is slowly and ruthlessly killing Aislinn?
Just to let readers know up front, An Apple Away involves a love story between three consenting adults - two women and a man.
Ms. Richards has written a beautiful piece set in the enchanting world of The Wiccan Haus. Filled with passion, romance, and magic (used for both good and evil), An Apple Away will captivate your senses and transport you away to the magical Wiccan Haus. I know, personally, it is a place I would love to visit. With classic themes and unconventional characters, Ms. Richards will enchant readers and leave them eager for the next chapter in the Wiccan Haus series. I do recommend starting at the beginning of the series with Dominique Eastwick's Shifting Hearts for the full experience of the Wiccan Haus, but each story stands well on its own. Step away from the mundane and into the extraordinary with Ms. Richards' An Apple Away.
