Texas Gothic revolves around Amy Goodnight, who is housesitting with her sister, Phin, for their aunt. Now the Goodnights aren’t your average family, they have some added magical flair. Some of them create magical things, like lotion that makes all your aches and pains go away, and others are psychic. Amy wants nothing to do with her magic side whatever her skills might be, but she finds herself attracting ghosts and a whole lot of trouble instead. After a skeleton is discovered near her aunt’s ranch, Amy and Phin find themselves more involved than they ever expected, which puts the town’s folk in a tizzy when people start getting hurt and ghost rumors and Goodnight connections to the events start to fly. There’s a bit of romance (not pukey) between Amy and ranch neighbor, Ben, which is pretty amusing. With a good dose of creepiness and intrigue, this is a guaranteed scary read.
