Bedtime Fury : Welcome to Chipping Cheddar, where supernaturals are hidden in plain sight
There’s been a discovery of demons.
The appearance of a strange plant on the Taskers’ farm sends Neville and I straight to the Federal Bureau of Magic database, where we discover that deadly demons are snatching bodies all over town. Meanwhile, with the Day of Darkness looming on the calendar, family tensions abound and I’m reminded once again that I’m the white sheep of this black magic family.
Can I put a stop to the Stepford invasion before it’s too late or will the demons take up residence in their hosts–permanently?
“Chocolate chip pancakes are dessert, not breakfast,” Verity said from her place at the table. As a doctor, my sister-in-law is firmly entrenched in the minimum five fruits and vegetables per day camp.
“Dessert for breakfast!” Olivia cried out. “I can’t wait to tell my teacher.” She hopped up and down in her chair.
“Now sweetheart, there’s no need to tell your teacher what you ate for breakfast,” Verity said.
Despite the affectionate tone, I heard the unspoken panic that she would be judged for her poor choice to serve her daughter such an unhealthy morning meal. I don’t envy moms today.
“Well, I have to tell Prudence,” Olivia said. “She’s always boasting about her muffin like it’s a gift from the gods.”
“Sounds like your grandmother,” Grandma quipped, and Verity shot her a silencing look.
“You don’t need to compete with Prudence,” Verity said.
“Not when you’re the clear winner,” Grandma added.
Verity pressed her lips into a thin line. “That’s not what I mean.”
Olivia crossed her arms. “Prudence says she’s better than me because the teacher gave her the Patience Award this month.”
