Beautifully Broken (Spellbound #1) by Sherry Soule

Thirteenth daughter. Heritage witch. Demon slayer. 

They say every town has its secrets, but that doesn’t even begin to describe Whispering Pines. The townsfolk are a superstitious lot and the mystical disappearance of a local teen has everyone murmuring about a centuries old witch’s curse. 

Sixteen-year-old Shiloh Ravenwolf is a heritage witch from the Broussard family, a family both destined and cursed. After she takes a summer job at Ravenhurst Manor, she discovers a ghost with an agenda. That’s where she meets the new town hottie, Trent Donovan. But Trent may be the next victim on the supernatural hit list, and Shiloh is the only person with the power to save him. Complicated much?

After receiving cryptic messages from a creepy wraith and frightening threats from a demon, Shiloh finally begins to understand the mysterious significance of the strange mark branded on her wrist. Now Shiloh must decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice to protect the other teenagers in town.

Unfortunately, for Shiloh, not all ghosts want help crossing over. Some want vengeance.

My Review  
This was a very interesting read. It was full of mystery and adventure. The witches were a unique blend of modern Wiccan and ancient witchcraft. It was quite a journey for Shiloh as she began to realize she was much more than just the town weirdo. She is definitely different from other girls, but as she begins to accept the truth she realizes she may have gifts that make her strong & powerful enough to save others from the evil that lurks around Whispering Pines. There are lots of distractions, though, and one of those comes in the form of the gorgeous Trent Donovan- the town bad boy with the fast car & sexy eyes that just happens to live in a haunted house. There are plenty of surprise twists to keep you on your toes and the ending will leave you screaming for more!
