Witch of the Cards by Catherine Stine

Fiera was born a sea witch with no inkling of her power. And now it might be too late.

Witch of the Cards is historical, supernatural romantic suspense set in 1932 on the Jersey shore. Twenty-two year-old Fiera has recently left the Brooklyn orphanage where she was raised, and works in Manhattan as a nanny. She gets a lucky break when her boss pays for her short vacation in Asbury Park. One evening, Fiera and her new friend Dulcie wander down the boardwalk and into Peter Dune’s Tarot & Séance, where they attend a card reading.

Fiera has always had an unsettling ability to know things before they happen and sense people’s hidden agendas. She longs to either find out the origin of her powers or else banish them because as is, they make her feel crazy. When, during the reading, her energies somehow bond with Peter Dune’s and form an undeniable ethereal force, a chain of revelations and dangerous events begin to unspool. For one, Fiera finds out she is a witch from a powerful sea clan, but that someone is out to stop her blossoming power forever. And though she is falling in love with Peter, he also has a secret side. He’s no card reader, but a private detective working to expose mediums. Despite this terrible betrayal, Fiera must make the choice to save Peter from a tragic Morro Cruise boat fire, or let him perish with his fellow investigators. Told in alternating viewpoints, we hear Fiera and Peter each struggle against their deep attraction. Secrets, lies, even murder, lace this dark fantasy.

One thought on “Witch of the Cards by Catherine Stine

  1. I love the cover….that is what drew me to this book at first. The story is set in the 1930’s on the Jersey shore.

    Most books are bogged down with descriptive verse and I don’t give them much time…but Witch of the Cards was a good read. I loved the sparks between Peter and Ivy, reading their points of view every other chapter was a bonus. It was interesting how Ivy was called to the sea and why. I hope there will be another in the series….I really would like to see what happens to Ivy, Peter, Dulcie and Opal. There is so much more potential for the characters….expanding their horizons and talents.
