A mysterious witch offers to grant a wish to a desperate woman . . .what could possibly go wrong?
Mandi McAllister needs a break. She washed out of college, tends bar at a shady joint, and runs a sketchy webcam that charges by the minute. Mandi is far from the model of exemplary behavior. While pouring out her heart out to a friend, she discovers that her hostile ex-boyfriend has just been released from jail and is having a drink in the same bar. His goal is to rekindle their relationship by any means necessary. Her plan is to avoid him at any cost.
In an attempt to break away from his control and to solve her laundry list of problems, she takes a penny draped around her neck and tosses it in the wishing well. She has run out of other options and pins her survival on this one desperate act. Shortly after, a mysterious woman named Abellina appears, offering to change her life.
To grant this wish, Abellina requires her to travel back in time 25 years to fix a predicament that has a far-reaching effect on Mandi’s present life problems. Sometimes, making a wish has a few strings attached.
The following day, Mandi finds herself in a present that looks the same, but has a few glaring differences. She becomes aware of these peculiarities after being arrested for assault.
Officer Derek Delaney has apprehended Mandi many times in the past but discovers that she suddenly has different penmanship and a robust vocabulary. He wonders if there might be something to this story about her time-travel claim and the woman at the wishing well. While looking deeper into her case, Derek learns that a witch named Abellina had endured some cruel treatment over a century earlier.
Derek is suddenly convinced that Mandi is not making up the story about Abellina—especially after Mandi insists that she never heard of her first cousin. The Mandi that Derek knows was a compulsive liar and a petty theft. Did she travel back in time 25 years or is she making up another lie? Something isn’t adding up.
If Mandi is telling the truth, could Abellina have a personal vendetta against the residents of Wilkinson Creek? Why else would a wish be granted only to make a girl’s life far more complicated than it was the day prior?
Just when you think you have it figured out, Abellina’s Revenge will have a new surprise waiting around the next corner.
