Product Description

Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Witch of the Cards" offers occult suspense and an enchanting romance 5 April 2016

Format: Kindle Edition
Witch of the Cards, by Catherine Stine

Prepare to be bewitched by Fiera, an orphan, now nanny, who discovers her sea witch roots and power in the face of awful and tragic truths, in this genre-bending, romantic, fantasy suspense story. Set on the Prohibition era Jersey shore, you can smell the sea salt and taste the taffy. Author Catherine Stine’s Asbury Park beaches and hotels are depicted realistically and with great occult details. Peter Dune, the supposed proprietor of a Tarot & Séance store, but really a private detective hired to expose mediums, falls for Fiera, but layers of deception threaten their tentative relationship. The drama is taut and the stakes are high; will Fiera rescue Peter from the doomed Morro Cruise boat fire? Will she overpower the evil, murderous Alyse Bone? Deftly plotted, “Witch of the Cards” weaves a spell with magic, tarot cards, exquisitely terrifying underwater scenes, inept detectives, and Fiera’s budding friendships with Dulcie and Opal. It ends surpisingly well, with a hint of sequel. Catherine Stine is a master storyteller above and beyond the constraints of genre.

This is my first time reading any book by Catherine Stine but it most certainly won't be the last!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable paranormal romance set in the 1930s on the Jersey Shore 26 March 2016
By J. A. Massa - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While romance is not my genre, I do love historical fantasy, especially novels featuring real people and events, with the supernatural portrayed as a secret undercurrent or cause. So I loved the inclusion of the famous Moro Castle shipwreck as a key plot element. Salvador Dali and Bela Lugosi playing bit parts? Fabulous.

The 1930s setting is well-researched and convincing. The bleakness of the Great Depression, and the glittering remnants of the Jazz Age, all come vividly to life. Catherine Stine has a gift for sparkling language and knows how to tell a good story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Historical Occult Novel 13 May 2016
By Michael Thal - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Twenty-two year-old Ivy Lorena is the nanny for Mrs. Cothbert’s spoiled young son on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. When her employer gives her a rare week vacation along the Jersey Shore, Ivy is overjoyed. Even though she grew up in a Brooklyn, NY orphanage, she had rarely seen the ocean nor learned how to swim. All of that will soon change.

Ivy quickly makes friends with Dulcie, a rich girl from Madison, New Jersey and as the duo walk along the boardwalk, they note a sign in a window celebrating the owner’s first month in business—a card reading. Normally, Ivy wouldn’t try something like this, but it’s vacation time and she’s looking for adventure, more than she could ever imagine.

It’s the summer of 1932. America was deep into the Great Depression with bread lines snaking around blocks and the homeless camping out in parks. Catherine Stine’s historical novel, Witch of the Cards, offers a suspenseful story of the occult as well as an enchanting love story.

During that first séance we meet most of the cast of characters. Peter Dune is the proprietor of Tarot and Séance. He is extremely handsome and Ivy is drawn to him immediately. He is also not who he says he is. His assistant, Opal is a teenage girl with wise but sad eyes in need of a mentor. Latecomer to the séance, businesswoman Alyse Bone, is beautiful as well as mysterious.

Ivy hopes the card reading will give her a clue into her unknown origin and strange abilities she tells no one about. Hint to reader: Ivy was not disappointed.

In her 268-page thriller, written in Ivy’s voice, author Catherine Stine does a superb job keeping readers on the edge as Ivy learns her real birth name, Fiera, and her powers of intuition were inherited from a woman no one would want to call “Mom”.

Witch of Cards is one novel readers will have trouble putting down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever blend of supernatural and real life 10 April 2016
By Lynda Dickson - Books Direct - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Ivy is a nanny on a summer holiday in Asbury, New Jersey, in 1932. She often has premonitions and feels strangely attracted to the ocean, even though this is her first visit. Ivy knows nothing of the circumstances of her birth, other than her birth name, Fiera. When psychic Peter Dune calls her by that name during a séance and later gives her a deck of Tarot cards, Fiera embarks on a journey to discover her origins and her destiny.

The story is told from the points-of-view of both Fiera and Peter. This leads to some repetition, as we sometimes see the same events from both perspectives. This author creates a great sense of atmosphere, capturing the voice and the mood of the nation during the Depression and Jazz Age. She includes historical references to Asbury Park, Hooverville, designer Elsa Schiaparelli, artist Salvador Dali, actress Irene Ware, actor Bela Lugosi, and the Morro Castle cruise liner. And she cleverly weaves supernatural fiction with a real-life tragedy.

While this story is complete, the ending hints at adventures to come.

Warnings: sexual references, mild sex scenes, alcohol consumption, drug use.

I received this book in return for an honest review.
