In this long awaited sequel to “Garden Spells”, we are taken back to the town of Bascom, North Carolina. Ten years have passed, but some things remain the same. The Waverly women still live and love there. Now they wait for the “first frost” of the season to set the world back in balance for them.
For generations, each Waverly woman has possessed a special gift or talent. Sisters Claire and Sydney have successful businesses in town. Claire runs an organic bakery, while Sydney owns a hair salon. The area locals have come to rely on their unique talents.
Now, the next generation of Waverly women is dealing with history and tradition. Sydney’s daughter is a teenager exploring feelings, including first love. Claire’s young daughter is just learning about the Waverly colourful history.
Some things in Bascom, N.C. have changed, however. A mysterious older man has come to town. He seems to be stalking the Waverly sisters. He has both secrets to share and a mission to accomplish.
