Sticks and stones may threaten bones, but her words can conquer both body and soul. Books of the Kindling, Book 3 During his law enforcement career, Sheriff Jake Moser has been called to Woodruff Mountain a few times to deal with some rather weird situations. Now, recovering from a bullet wound that should have killed him and fending off his mother's ravings about the evil that lurks on the mountain, he's making alternate career plans. Just as those plans begin to take shape, someone starts kidnapping newborn babies, then returning them unharmed. To make things even more interesting, an irritating adversary from his past has returned to bedevil him in a whole new, delightful way. After her erratic psychic gift forced her to abandon her home and a promising musical career, Thea Woodruff has spent years trying, unsuccessfully, to atone for the death of Becca Moser, Jake's sister. Once she has mourned those she's lost and apologized to those she's failed, she intends to flee her mountain once again. Jake would rather she stay to compose a new tune-with him. But their complicated harmony reveals a guilty secret that threatens not only their future, but their lives... Warning: A temperamental flute-player returns to torment an old flame, but he has other ideas, and the music they make together is combustible-and magical.

About the Author:

Donna June Cooper is the granddaughter of a coal miner (and the great-great-granddaughter of one of the Muscogee people) who was raised in the shadows of the Appalachian Mountains - in the beautiful hills of East Tennessee. After getting a couple of college degrees, she was lured away from her mountains by an admittedly gorgeous Italian guy who married her and carried her off to very flat (they call hills mountains down here) and very hot (no seriously, people bake cookies in their cars) Texas. Her vocations have included a little bit of everything, including a stint as an IRS tax auditor, a few years managing a bookstore, and a career in the corporate world writing technical courseware and documentation, but her avocation has always been writing. Donna loves being walked by her Jack Russell Terrier (if you know Jack Russells, you understand), belly dancing (excellent exercise and lots of shiny costumes), reading science fiction and romance (three books at once, at times), and travel (with family in Italy and England, who wouldn't?) But, like any child of the Appalachians, she can't stay away from her mountains for long, and visits as often as she can. She takes us with her to those mountains in the Books of the Kindling.

Review:

"This series continues to develop in richness and complexity...This is probably my favorite of the series so far and I expect even better things in future books of this series...This world continues to get better and I'm delighted to see it will be continuing on."  ~ Read What I Like Book Reviews

"Making Magic is a beautiful and powerful story full of all kinds of deep and meaningful emotions. As usual, Ms.Cooper opens our eyes to the wonders of the Appalachian Mountains and her people, while gently schooling us on the woes we are bringing on ourselves and the earth by insensitive practices." ~ More Romance Please Book Reviews
