“I love books like this, a strong storyline, characters I can relate to, and an ending that I loved.” –Heather Ayala
“Don’t miss The Witch on Twisted Oak, a taut police procedural with a paranormal edge and a well-rounded cast of characters who are, refreshingly, Hispanic rather than the usual Anglo, adding a different dimension to this mystery set in Houston.” –Joan Reeves
“Susan has done it again! A powerhouse of a mystery with a wonderful mix of suspense, a great villain, an enigmatic heroine, and a sexy hero.” –Shauna Allen

Ruben’s desk looked just as it had when he left on Friday. No little elves had come in and cleared it for him.
“Morning, partner. You look like shit.” Adam gazed at him over the rim of his coffee mug.
“Thanks. You look like sunshine yourself.” Actually, Adam did look pretty good. Smiling. Who smiled at 8:00 on Monday morning? Someone who’d had a better weekend than he had.
“Ready to go catch us a bad guy?”
“Couldn’t happen too soon for me. Someone broke into Tessa Reyna’s house on Saturday. I’ve had her stashed at my cabin all weekend.”
Adam’s eyebrows rose. “Was she hurt? Any idea who did it?”
“No, and no. Not unless I have a report hidden here somewhere about fingerprints.” Ruben shuffled through his in box. Nothing.
He glanced at Adam. “I’ll call Tessa and make sure she’s okay before we head out to question Jacinto.”
“She’s a witness, Ruben.” Adam sat his mug down and stared at him.
Wow, he must be serious. He let go of his coffee. “I know exactly what she is and I don’t need a Romeo, even a reformed Romeo, to remind me.” I also know what she thinks she is; a witch with magical powers.
