The Witching Well Publisher's Summary

“I’m leaving.” Two shocking words, torching a marriage of over 20 years. Totally blindsided, Shannon, a middle-aged stay-at-home mom, is traded in for a newer model. 

One of the few possessions her cheating ex didn’t swipe was the mountain resort she inherited from her dear Aunt Maeve. With limited funds and bleak job prospects, the decrepit resort is a lifeline! 

But what’s with the water in the small town in the Catskill Mountains? Every guy she meets looks like he stepped off the cover of GQ magazine. She’s had it with men! Or maybe not....

Shannon discovers a wishing well in her forest and learns that magic is real. So are witches and their spells. Her aunt Maeve was a witch, and now it’s Shannon’s turn. 

This discovery catapults her from the mundane. She’s no longer a Spanx-wearing soccer mom fighting traffic and a midlife spare tire. Who has time for bitterness when there’s a world of magical witchcraft to learn? 

But the learning curve is steep. Spells go off the rails. Who knew she’d turn her best friend into a sex addict? Or that getting revenge on her ex would boomerang back to bite her in the ass? She’s learning. Give her a break, okay? 

Meanwhile, a handsome developer with designs on using her land to create a million-dollar subdivision has his eye on her enchanted resort. 

As if her personal tropical moments, a muffin top, and a bad back aren’t challenging enough, she has to deal with his tricks to sink her. Why does he want her property so bad? Can’t he find someplace else to pillage? 

Shannon is going to need all the magic that the little wishing well showers on her and then some. 

Witching Well, Book One of the Hex After 40 series, is a story of a woman thrown into the deep end who surfaces, claiming her power. Midlife, divorce, and trying to stay sane to be a good mother aren’t the end. There’s magic, heartwarming friendship, and maybe even love in this roller coaster ride of life’s next stage.
