Dahlia Poplar is a genuine witch, an unofficial gofer, and Luna Lane’s only cursed resident. With a werewolf best friend, a vampire ex-boyfriend, and a ghost for a hanger-on, Dahlia is far from the most unusual dweller of her sleepy small town, but she’s the only one unable to leave. Dahlia has to perform at least one good deed per day - or she’s one step closer to turning to stone. Fortunately, the residents of Luna Lane have plenty of tasks for Dahlia to complete to avert the curse until Cable Woodward, fetching professor and nephew of her elderly neighbor, stops by for the semester on sabbatical. Attempting to help Cable’s uncle work through the trauma of losing his wife, Dahlia uncovers the man’s collection of board games, which leads to him reminiscing about the long-forgotten Luna Lane Games Club. Dahlia reestablishes the Games Club, only to find evidence of a number of horrible demises connected to the original group. While trying to uncover the truth about the deaths, Dahlia has to fight off her curse, protect her elderly neighbor from becoming the next victim, and most vexing of all, keep Cable from figuring out Luna Lane’s supernatural secrets. Only, with eerie board games like these, there may not be a loser - or even a winner - who survives.

 Top 10 List
Author Amy McNulty's Top 10 Reasons to Listen to Broomsticks and Board Games
  1. There’s a magic broomstick that acts like a cat. She eats cornhusks and often manages to get up to mischief.
  2. Vampires, werewolves, witches, and mummies, oh my! The small town of Luna Lane is full of delightful paranormal creatures and their “normie” human neighbors.
  3. The Spooky Games Club plays a cursed board game. It was odd to recreate the experience of playing a board game via the written word, but I hope readers find themselves immersed in the experience as the club must play the game to solve a mystery.
  4. Main character witch Dahlia’s ex-boyfriend is a surly vampire who still carries a torch for her. The normie neighbor’s human son, a visiting professor, is pretty cute, too.
  5. Werewolf besties. Dahlia’s best friend, Faine, has a little werewolf pack of her own: a husband and three adorable kids. They run the local cafĂ©, Hungry Like a Pup.
  6. Dahlia is plagued by a curse. If she doesn’t complete a good deed while the sun is up—without resorting to relying on her magic—she grows a stone scale. Someday, she might turn into stone entirely.
  7. Backwards spells. To use magic, Dahlia must say what she wants backwards. It doesn’t always work perfectly, but the result is often amusing.
  8. Friendly town. The closest Dahlia has to an enemy is her ex-boyfriend, and even he doesn’t always get on her last nerve. Everyone in Luna Lane looks out for each other and their cursed resident witch.
  9. Spooky, mysterious wicked witch. Dahlia’s not the only witch in town. The silver-haired witch who cursed Dahlia at birth seems to be back and up to no good.
  10. Danielle Daly’s amazing work! She brings emotion and humor to every scene as called for, making it easy to immerse yourself in the telling of the tale.
