Just when she's starting to wonder if the dust has settled in Lemon Bliss, someone breaks into the town's museum. Because everything in Lemon Bliss seems to be tangled up in magic, Violet isn't the least bit surprised to discover every item stolen from the museum is connected to the ancient witch coven.

With the witches running around trying to steal back their stolen items and hide their true power while they're at it, Violet finds herself stooping to all kinds of magic. Breaking and entering, a sneaky love spell to beguile the police chief, and more are thrown about with abandon by the witches. Meanwhile, Gabriel is still wooing her, the lemon trees have begun to bloom again, and the supernatural investigators won't stop sneaking into the factory.
