I Dream of Twila Publisher's Summary

Twila Winchester isn't used to being in charge, but that's exactly where she finds herself when her sisters leave town for a business convention.

Twila thinks everything is going to be fun and games even though she has one daughter, two nieces, and one mischievous aunt to contend with. She's focused on cooking and having a good time...until a roving troupe of renaissance performers make camp on the Winchester property and trouble starts brewing.

When the head of the group starts making predictions - and, unfortunately, gets left behind - Twila has her hands full. It seems Aunt Tillie doesn't trust the new guest and she's determined to turn the three younger Winchesters into investigative dynamos.

Twila is working on a limited timetable. She must solve a mystery involving some missing items, open her home to a stranger, and crack down on Aunt Tillie's "lying" classes as her aunt attempts to teach Bay, Clove, and Thistle how to manipulate everyone in their paths.

Oh, and she has to do it all before Marnie and Winnie return to town.

No pressure, though.

Note: This is a 28,000-word short set in the Wicked Witches of the Midwest world. It is set back in time so it can be listened to at any point in the timeline.

    Welcome to Hemlock Cove, where the town is magically rebranded - but real witches aren't necessarily welcome. That makes things hard for the Winchester witches - including local newspaper reporter Bay.

    Where there's a witch, there's a way! Where there's a whole family of them, there's trouble. Bay Winchester, editor of Hemlock Cove's small weekly newspaper, thinks her small hamlet's upcoming murder mystery weekend is going to be all about fun, food, and frolicking. Instead, when another dead body is discovered in Hemlock Cove, things turn into murder, mayhem, and migraines (the latter is mostly thanks to her family, of course).

    After a long winter, spring has finally hit Hemlock Cove, and Bay Winchester thinks things are finally settling down in the town - and with her family. Unfortunately, just the opposite is true. As a way to distract Aunt Tillie, the Winchester family has decided to give her a new project: her own greenhouse. As construction starts, though, Bay is approached by a young girl - one she quickly realizes is no longer among the living - and given a task. The little girl wants her mother - and she wants Bay to find her.

She may be a long-suffering daughter, thankless newspaper editor, and keyed-up girlfriend, but she's barely holding off a royal freak-out. Landon's family is visiting the inn - and they're not exactly open minded. Bay is on a mission to hide her witchy ways, but the discovery of a body - and the poltergeist that accompanies it - at The Overlook tips everything into turmoil.

    Hemlock Cove is celebrating a magical birthday, and familiar faces from different places are descending on the town to participate in the party. Everyone is looking forward to the festivities except Bay Winchester, who would rather be hiding from her high school nemesis than chatting her up in the town square. Lila Stevens hasn't changed since graduation, and Bay remains her favorite target. Bay would like to ignore her, but Lila isn't making it easy - especially when she sets her sights on FBI Agent Landon Michaels.

It's clear they're up to something, but no one can figure out what.

    Tillie Winchester's past is about to come back to haunt her, and what she sees as fun and games someone else sees as a recipe for murder. When a local woman is poisoned at Hemlock Cove's senior center, Aunt Tillie is the prime suspect. Bay, Thistle and Clove don't believe their great-aunt is guilty - although Thistle is fine if the police want to haul her away for a long weekend. Everyone in town is suspicious, but things spiral out of control when FBI Agent Landon Michaels' boss believes he can't be objective where his girlfriend's family is concerned and sends another agent to lead the investigation. The new agent is gung-ho, headstrong, and making witchy enemies at every turn. When the investigation turns to the past instead of the present, Aunt Tillie refuses to talk and a long held Hemlock Cove secret risks being exposed. Bodies start piling up as old grudges overlap with new clues and the Winchesters are caught in the crossfire.

It doesn’t help that her cousins can’t stop making fun of her, which is the Winchester way, of course. In addition to the Cornells' imminent visit, the Winchesters are also dealing with Sam’s new tanker. An afternoon visit knocks Bay for a metaphysical loop with ugly visions of a tragedy long since forgotten - by everyone but the dead.

The town is christening a new wishing well - dedicated by Mrs. Little herself - and Landon and Bay are eager to attend the unveiling. In truth, Landon is in it for the doughnuts and hot chocolate, but Bay is dedicated to covering the event in the best possible way. In quick succession, weird things start happening around Hemlock Cove. Bay figures out what's going on - and it all comes back to that wishing well.
