I want to take a minute to talk about The Thorne Witches series…
If you haven’t had the chance to discover this series for themselves, I’d like to tell you about it the following is taken from T M Cromer’s newsletter. Please feel free to check out her website for further information:
The Thorne Witches is a series about a family of witches set in rural Tennessee. They go about their everyday life all the while keeping their powers hidden from the rest of their community.
Summer Thorne (Summer Magic – bk 1) is a veterinarian and runs the local animal sanctuary. She takes in all the animals that no one else wants or that have been mistreated by others. There is nothing normal about Summer or her animals. Like all good heroines do, she runs afoul of the town sheriff, Cooper Carlyle, whom she’s always crushed on. Only now, Coop wants to shut her down for the safety of the town. This story is filled with laugh-out-loud humor and hijinks.
Autumn Thorne (Autumn Magic – bk 2) is an activist and maintains the families finances. She’s also the ringleader of the witches and tends to tell it like it is. If you love a strong, kickass character, you’ve found it in Autumn. Her story is about love, loss, and sacrifice. What wouldn’t she do for the ones she loves? But it’s also about redemption and forgiveness. While this story is more serious in nature than book 1, I feel you’ll fall in love with the characters as they develop along with the story arc and enjoy this story just as much, if not more, than book 1.
Winnie Thorne (Winter Magic -bk 3) has a thriving company that produces potions and lotions for those with health issues. She makes magical arthritis creams for the elderly and bakes plate-sized cinnamon rolls that never fail to get devoured. But our dear, quiet Winnie has been holding onto a secret for a long while. She’s been in love with Zane Carlyle for a great many years. And unfortunately for her, they’ve already made a hash of things. Only she’s wiped Zane’s memory so he wouldn’t know about their first go around. Winnie’s story pulls in the humor of book 1 with the angst of book 2 and then adds a little magic of its own. With support characters you’ll fall in love with, this book is a winner for Winter.
Spring Thorne (Spring Magic – bk 4) is the family jewel. She sparkles and shines, and has a genius IQ. Sure, some of us might hate her on principle alone, but I’m betting you’ll fall in love with her in this particular series. Spring isn’t afraid to go toe-to-toe with the big baddie – or the mouthwatering Knox Carlyle – to come out on top. Her story has a few dark moments for our feisty heroine, but she is a fighter, and I promise, you’ll be cheering the outcome of this particular book.
Holly Thorne (Rekindled Magic – bk 5) is the half-sister to the Weird Season Sisters. This “Prickly Pear” has had a rough go of it, but she’s not going to let that get in the way of what – and who – she wants. With the delectable warlock Quentin Buchanan as her self-appointed bodyguard, Holly has no reason to fear those wishing to do her harm.
While our story arc ends with book five, there will be other books coming in the series that are stand alone.
Alastair Thorne, the man you love to hate in book 1 but fall in love with by book 5, will have his own story called Long Lost Magic (bk 6).
Nash Thorne, the scholarly businessman with an attitude, will thrill you with his story, Essential Magic (bk 7).
And we mustn’t forget the vivacious GiGi Thorne-Gillespie and her wayward husband Ryker. These two will have a second chance at romance in her story. As yet, book 8 is nameless, but I’ll be hosting a book-naming contest in the near future. Be sure to have your thinking caps ready!
