Cooper Shaw lives his life under a pen name and enjoys the anonymity it provides during his journeys across the globe as a seasoned writer for a travel magazine. When his job lands him in his hometown of Salem, Massachusetts to cover the famous Festival of the Dead, he soon realizes that he can’t stay invisible forever as he faces ghosts from a past he’s been trying to forget ever since he left.
The city holds nothing but bad memories for Coop until he meets a quirky young woman with an old soul and curious insights by the name of Finnley Pierce. While she acts as his tour guide through a town he thought he knew, Finn helps him unearth the truth of his childhood and might even begin to open up his heart.
By unraveling the mystery of his father’s murder, Coop may finally accept who he is, where he came from, and perhaps even realize what he wants for his future.
Cooper is on his way back home, against his will, to his old hometown. Being a travel reporter, his boss has ordered him to visit Salem to cover the Festival of the Dead, not knowing his personal ties to the happenings.
Returning to Salem brings back memories of his childhood, his father, his mother, and of the disaster that it all became (his father disappeared and his mother was convicted of his murder). There’s no happy memories for Coop.
Being back in Salem, he finds himself meeting the same woman, through chance, over and over, and soon they spend more time together, with Finn as his guide to Salem´s historical spots. But why is the past haunting him so? Is it because his mother’s funeral is coming up, or is it all guilt he´s feeling?
Cursed be the Wicked is a great read filled with mystery, magic, and love all in a great combo that won´t let you put it down until you´re at the last page. Loved it!
