La Bruja del Barrio Loco – #2 In La Bruja del Barrio Loco Series
Thirty-year-old Elisa Sandoval wants nothing more than to get her graduate degree in Women’s History and hopefully, marry her boyfriend Greg. But, when she encounters a real witch in a Mexican supernatural shop, and she slights the old woman over a seemingly trivial matter, Elisa’s life becomes an unimaginable hell.
Stalked ruthlessly for weeks, Elisa comes face to face with magic and chaos straight out of the cuentos, fairy tales her mother told her as a child. Yet, she must set her logic aside as the nightmare continues, and Elisa is incarcerated for a murder she did not commit.
