Summary, etc.:
As Halloween approaches, Nora Pennington decides to showcase fictional heroines like Roald Dahl's Matilda and Madeline Miller's Circe. A family-values group disapproves of the magical themes, though, and wastes no time launching a modern-day witch hunt. They're targeting not only Nora and Miracle Books, but a new shopkeeper, Celeste, who has been selling CBD oil products. When a local death is declared an accident, the ruling can't explain the old book page covered with strange symbols and disturbing drawings left under Nora's doormat, a postcard from an anonymous stalker, or multiple cases of vandalism. The Secret, Book, and Scone Society investigate before more bodies turn up and the secrets from Celeste's past come back to haunt them all. -- adapted from jacket
