Awhile ago, I read “The Lace Reader,” by Brunonia Barry and absolutely loved it! Salem, Mass. has always fascinated me – it’s the perfect blend of New England charm and creepy history. I’ve visited before and am dying to go back! So I was sooo excited to see that the characters from “The Lace Reader” are back in “The Fifth Petal,” which I just got yesterday on Amazon. I can’t wait to indulge!


The New York Times bestselling author of The Lace Reader returns to Salem with this spellbinding new thriller, a complex brew of suspense, seduction and murder.

When a teenage boy dies suspiciously on Halloween night, Salem’s chief of police, John Rafferty wonders if there is a connection between his death and Salem’s most notorious cold case, a triple homicide dubbed “The Goddess Murders,” in which three young women, all descended from accused Salem witches, were slashed on Halloween night in 1989. He finds unexpected help in Callie Cahill, the daughter of one of the victims newly returned to town. Neither believes that the main suspect, Rose Whelan, respected local historian, is guilty of murder or witchcraft. 

But exonerating Rose might mean crossing paths with a dangerous force. Were the women victims of an all-too-human vengeance, or was the devil raised in Salem that night? And if they cannot discover what truly happened, will evil rise again?
