Summary from Goodreads:
Three plantations. Two wishes. One ancient
curse.
All her life, Barrie Watson has been a virtual prisoner in the house where she
lives with her shut-in mother. When her mother dies, Barrie promises to put
some mileage on her stiletto heels. But she finds a new kind of prison at her
aunt’s South Carolina plantation instead–a prison guarded by an ancient spirit
who long ago cursed one of the three founding families of Watson Island and
gave the others magical gifts that became compulsions.Stuck with the ghosts of a generations-old feud and hunted by forces she cannot
see, Barrie must find a way to break free of the family legacy. With the help
of sun-kissed Eight Beaufort, who knows what Barrie wants before she knows
herself, the last Watson heir starts to unravel her family’s twisted secrets.
What she finds is dangerous: a love she never expected, a river that turns to
fire at midnight, a gorgeous cousin who isn’t what she seems, and very real
enemies who want both Eight and Barrie dead.

RANDOM AUTHOR FACTS:
I was born in Prague in what’s now the Czech Republic, which is probably the most magical city on earth (just ask Laini Taylor’s Karou or Zuzana). I think that probably explains my love of magical settings. There’s nothing like waking up every morning with a fairytale castle rising on a hillside above you, spending days walking down narrow cobblestoned alleys full of alchemists shops and stores that sell Absynthe, and going to sleep at night with the lights of a hundred spires winging into the sky to spark the imagination.
I love to travel and made it to twelve different countries last year. Well, eleven if you don’t count the U.S. Prague and Austria were, as always, two of my favorites, but I loved Turkey and Thailand, had a ball visiting an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka, and despite my fear of heights, I forced myself to go to the top of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the world’s tallest building, and the Petronas Tower in Kuala Lumpur. I also climbed the 272 steps to the Batu Cave Temple, which wasn’t so much a height problem as a distraction problem. I was so busy watching the monkeys sliding down the banisters that I practically took a header. I think my favorite place of all though—because it was completely new to me and full of incredible things everywhere I looked—was India. The Taj Mahal is truly incredible, but I was completely enchanted by the people and the mixture of old and very modern. I also collected the framework of a book I’m dying to write in Bermuda.
I used to tell Edgar Allen Poe “ghost” stories at Girl Scout Camp and make people get creeped out, but I can’t watch horror movies to save my life.
I love Nutella, marzipan, and stale sugar-free licorice.
I’ve taught both skiing and horseback riding, and together those have resulted in enough concussions to more than explain the crazy stuff my imagination dreams up.
I love coffee, but when I’m writing, I prefer to drink chocolate flavored tea with milk.
I have a Shetland Sheepdog named “Auggie” (Auggie the doggie), who is a certified therapy dog. In addition to performing tricks at nursing homes and hospitals, he has helped me to teach writing to first and second graders.
