When the truth burns away her illusions, only one man can break her fall.
A few months ago, Skyler Fields didn’t believe witches were real. Until she was kidnapped and held prisoner in a facility that forced her to face the fact — she is one. And not just a run-of-the-broom witch with a cool party trick, either. She can control fire with a mere thought, and detect when other witches are nearby.
Freed with the help of a fellow prisoner, she follows her thumb to Arizona, where, she’s told, the Wilcox clan will give her the help she needs. She never expected the first Wilcox she meets to make her pulse race.
With his tall, dark good looks and smoke-gray eyes, Jasper Wilcox could easily distract Skyler from her mission. But she has questions about her heritage, and the buzzing in her head tells her she’s in the presence of a warlock who can get her the answers she so desperately craves.
As Skyler and Jasper work to peel away the lies surrounding the source of her gifts, they are irresistibly drawn together. But the deeper they dig, the greater the danger that the truth will tear them apart...and put the entire Wilcox clan in danger.
Wilcox Clan Unite
This is a NON-SPOILER REVIEW of Smoke and Mirrors, the ninth offering in The Witches of Wheeler Park series by Christine Pope. While this book can basically be read as stand alone, it is part of an amazing series and does benefit from reading the previous books as most of the characters have had their own stories that feed into the events in this read.
I love that Christine Pope always draws pictures with her words. You can escape into Arizona and visit Flagstaff and Jerome in her Wheeler Park books. Skyler escapes from a “facility” with the help of Nathan who sends her west to the Wilcox Clan for help. Jasper is stunned to find Skyler in his cabin in the woods but quickly realizes she is evoking feelings he never thought he would feel. When it begins to look like the S.E.D. might be setting up another shop and collecting witches and warlocks, the Wilcox Clan is once again called in to investigate. Jasper and Skyler’s story closes the Wheeler Park thread in a beautiful story of love and acceptance. A great read that caps an already amazing series. Some heat makes this a Mature Readers Suggested read.
