SummaryAdd a Summary
Penelope and Persephone are twin girls about to begin their first season in London. While Pen can barely contain her excitement, Persy would much rather stay home and continue to study magic. When their governess and magic tutor, Miss Allardyce, mysteriously disappears, the twins quickly discover that their position as young ladies in society keeps them from being able to search for her. Soon their younger brother Charles (better known as Chucklehead to the twins) and their neighbor Lochinvar, who turns Persy into a stammering fool, have joined forces with the twins. As the search continues, the twins discover that Miss Allardyce has been kidnapped as part of a magical plot against the Princess Victoria and it is up to them to save the day. A delightful romp, Bewitching Season combines historical fiction, fantasy, romance and mystery into one delectable whole.

Magic or Marriage?
Twins Persephone and Penelope Leland are anticipating their first London season with mixed feelings. Pen can't wait to flirt with handsome young men at parties, but Persy would far rather stay home and continue her magic studies. When the twins discover that their governess has been kidnapped as part of a dastardly plot to enchant the soon-to-be-queen, they're determined to find and save them both. Along the way, Persy learns that a good lady's maid is hard to find, that one should never cast a love spell on anyone after drinking too much brandy punch at a party, that pesky little brothers can sometimes come in handy, and that husband hunting isn't such an odious task after all, if you can find the right quarry.
