La Famiglia di Mostri Book 2, by D.R. Perry
The stock market crashes, threatening to bring Plymouth’s secret magical “Wise” families down with it. When Bill and Millie’s precognitive Uncle Finn threatens to usurp their father and take control of all the Wise families, the twins realize they must stop him.
Bill’s telepathic powers and ambition aren’t enough to outmaneuver his uncle, even with help from his sister and their similarly powered friends. Uncle Finn has an alliance with the Irish Mob up in Boston. Bill needs connections and there’s only one place to do that in this town.
The Plymouth Supper Club hides hooch and rumrunners like a backdrop covers warehouse walls on Poverty Row. Bill is ready to jump in with both feet but Millie wants out of this town, not a piece of its action. Can they wise up together or will the prospect of criminal life drive their friends and family apart?

Practical Magic Series (Prequel to Practical Magic), by Alice Hoffman
Find your magic.
For the Owens family, love is a curse that began in 1620, when Maria Owens was charged with witchery for loving the wrong man.
Hundreds of years later, in New York City at the cusp of the sixties, when the whole world is about to change, Susanna Owens knows that her three children are dangerously unique. Difficult Franny, with skin as pale as milk and blood red hair, shy and beautiful Jet, who can read other people’s thoughts, and charismatic Vincent, who began looking for trouble on the day he could walk.
From the start Susanna sets down rules for her children: No walking in the moonlight, no red shoes, no wearing black, no cats, no crows, no candles, no books about magic. And most importantly, never, ever, fall in love. But when her children visit their Aunt Isabelle, in the small Massachusetts town where the Owens family has been blamed for everything that has ever gone wrong, they uncover family secrets and begin to understand the truth of who they are. Back in New York City each begins a risky journey as they try to escape the family curse.

Guardians of the Path Book 1, by Nicole DragonBeck
The Path is fading, and the music of Life is vanishing. Cedar and his fellow Guardians have been entrusted for centuries to protect the Path, the very force of Life itself.
An accident traps Cedar between his home and another world devoid of magyc–but not of music. He is found by Ria, a mysterious girl who holds the key to returning him home.
With little choice Cedar uses First Magyc, Blood Magyc, to save himself, and finds himself the unlikely caretaker of the very girl who might fulfill an ancient Prophecy and restore the Guardians to their former station as honored heroes.
Unwittingly lured into Demona, a world of magyc and music, Ria struggles to understand her own growing abilities even as she is drawn into an ages old conflict between Human and Demon.
But sometimes, the difference between the two isn’t so easy to see.
About the Author: Nicole DragonBeck was born in California one snowy summer long ago, the illegitimate offspring of an elf and a troll. At a young age her powers exploded and she was banished to the wilderness of South Africa because her spells kept going inexplicably awry. There she was raised by a tribe of pygmy Dragons and had tremendous adventures, including defeating a terrible Fire-Demon that had been tormenting a sect of Dwarf priests. In gratitude they taught her the arcane magic of writing and the rest is horribly misinterpreted history. She reads as much as she writes, is obsessed with dragons and Italians, enjoys cooking, listening to music and can often be heard fiddling on a keyboard or guitar. She currently lives in Clearwater, Florida, is a member of The Ink Slingers Guild and is working on several novels, all of which have at least one mention of a dragon. She lists friends, music and life among her greatest influences.
