Publisher's Summary

Speakeasy manager Clara Woodsen will do anything to save her silent film idol from an untimely death. Even summon a demon. Even bet she can teach his half-human/half-cheetah assistant to foxtrot. But people around town are acting strange. Have Clara’s efforts unleashed a zombie plague? Or are her customers just really bad at dancing the Charleston? And can a career-minded woman find happiness with the man of her dreams if she uses her…brains?
All Bernard Benjamin wants is a quiet life. At least as quiet as possible for a young college man possessing a golem housekeeper, five demon-summoning witches for cousins, and a dance partner who has not only two left feet but two right feet as well.
Bernie is used to being his cousin Clara’s stooge, but when the chips are down and push edges toward shove, he knows they’ll back each other one hundred percent. So why has Clara tied him up in a pentagram? And what’s she doing with that sharp, shiny knife…?

Witches and zombies!

This is a prequel book to Keys to the Coven. Both books are great as a stand alone or together. I definitely hoping for more in this series! This book switches perspectives from Clara Woodsmen to her cousin Bernard Benjamin as it switches narrators. Yes, the same Woodsmen family from Keys to the Coven, just a little further back in the family tree. This book even adds zombies! I loved it! Of course there was sex! Can't have witches, warlocks, and demons without sex! Great story and excellent narration! Looking forward to the next book!
