Title: House of Ivy & Sorrow
Author: Natalie Whipple
Release Date: April 15, 2014
Josephine Hemlock has spent the last 10 years hiding from the Curse that killed her mother. But when a mysterious man arrives at her ivy-covered, magic-fortified home, it’s clear her mother’s killer has finally come to destroy the rest of the Hemlock bloodline. Before Jo can even think about fighting back, she must figure out who she’s fighting in the first place. The more truth Jo uncovers, the deeper she falls into witchcraft darker than she ever imagined. Trapped and running out of time, she begins to wonder if the very Curse that killed her mother is the only way to save everyone she loves.
The blurb had me at witches and curse, and the Amazon blurb compares this to Charmed which is one of my ridiculous guilty pleasures. Plus, I always love a good dark YA standalone!
