<p> USA Today bestselling author Carolyn Haines will once again delight readers with Charmed Bones , the next sparkling Sarah Booth Delaney mystery. </p> <p>Zinnia, Mississippi is rife with quirky characters, but the arrival of three sister witches--and their intention to open a Wiccan boarding school--sets the small town on its ear. And bodies begin to accumulate as a result. Faith, Hope, and Charity Harrington are sexy and smart. They're setting up their boarding school in an old dairy--a piece of property with tremendous development potential. And they're standing in the way of "progress," according to some in the town.</p> <p>When young Corey Fontana goes missing, Delaney Detective Agency is hired to find the youth--who's well known as a local hooligan. His mother, Kitten Fontana, who is married to the kind of land development, believes the witches have abducted her son and makes no bones about it. She's willing to pay hard cash to find her son, especially if she can implicate the witches in his disappearance.</p> <p>When Sarah Booth Delaney and her partner, Tinkie Richmond, find Corey, unharmed, it is only the beginning of a series of events that include midnight dances under a full moon, love potions, and murder. Are the sister witches criminals... or victims? Do they truly have magical powers, as they claim? Sarah Booth and Tinkie must find the answer before more people are harmed.</p>
