After spending 10 months in magic-abuse jail for a crime she doesn't remember committing, accident-prone witch-in-denial Bernice Sutton is zapped to the small paranormal town of Paris, Texas. With Miss Fee Line, her kitty drag-queen familiar, by her side, Bernie just wants to fulfill the terms of her parole - shoveling horse and cow dung on a ranch - so she can get back to Boston and dig into the mystery of her parents' deaths and her witch lineage.
But plans be damned, Bernie's quickly distracted by the town's quirky cast of magical characters, from Winnie - the sassy owner of the local witch halfway house - to the entire posse of Poise Pad wearers at the senior center. And then there's the biggest distraction of all, Ridge Donovan, Mr. Hot-Pants ranch owner. Maybe it couldn't hurt to let them teach her how to harness her magic; if nothing else, it might make her less of a walking disaster. And Ridge is one hunk - er, *helpful* study partner.
Between learning spells, wreaking havoc on the ranch, turning bingo night at the senior center into a "whirlwind" of excitement, and fighting her attraction to Ridge, Bernie is unprepared for an unwelcome person from her past. On one hand, he's the key to her lifelong questions. On the other, he could destroy the new life she's coming to enjoy - and the lives of all those she's coming to love.
