Hubble, bubble, the witch is in trouble, the ballerina's broken and the vet's in disgrace. Living in the Lakes is going to be murder.
When Patrick’s photographed in flagrante with a local beauty queen, his father delivers an ultimatum: one more newspaper scandal and Patrick will be disowned – no house and no job at the family veterinary practice.
Desperate not to lose his easy life in the country, Patrick needs to avoid trouble – and girls like Libby. Until she moved to the Lakes, Libby hadn't had sex on a first date, let alone indulged in a one-night-stand. But after flings with the local policeman and a married man, her morals unravel causing the local rag to dub her ‘The Libertine’.
Infamous and still mourning her previous career as a ballerina, Libby casts a Wicca spell to summon a new love. Good-looking, honest, non-brown eyes, English, likes animals… in a nutshell: Patrick, a man she’s never met.
But fighting Libby’s love spell will be the least of Patrick’s problems when an old lady dies from a ketamine overdose. The drug was stolen from his surgery and she’s the third pensioner to die in as many months.
Tongues will wag.
