All vanquishing and no play makes for tired, grumpy Charmed Ones. Paige decides that what they need is a family getaway. She'd love to explore her witch heritage in Salem, but Phoebe and Piper vote for a relaxing beach trip. Luckily, Leo points out, they can do both. They'll spend a day or two in Salem, then the rest of the time on the beautiful Massachusetts coast...

In Mystic Knoll, It seems the girls have gotten a break from evil - but late flights and wrong directions conspire to side-track the travellers, and they find themselves hungry, exhausted, and nowhere near Salem.

They happen upon a bed-and-breakfast run by a crotchety old woman and her strange, shy granddaughter. They're not your typical innkeepers, and soon Piper, Phoebe, and Paige find that nothing in this small town is typical. It's all a little... well... mystical.

The latest book in the Charmed collection is, I'm afraid to say, wasted on the teenage market. Okay, sorry, I take that back. What I meant was that it's a shame that this book is being marketed to the teenage market, because fans of the series, of any age, will find this enjoyable.

Diana G. Gallagher has a fluid writing style which makes it difficult to put this book down. Another worthy addition to the range.
