About the Book

Dare to Believe in Your Power…

A long-lost grandmother. A stay-at-home mom. A comic book fan. A five-year-old girl with a star-shaped birthmark. And nine more.

The cast is bigger, the stakes are higher. When Sarita’s grandmother, a Vodou priestess, foresees a terrible evil, Cynthia, Jane, Angela, and Rohini reunite on a heart-rending mission to save all that’s precious to them, including the iconic ship, the RMS Queen Mary. They cannot do it alone—the priestess tells them there must be “thirteen on the night of the thirteenth moon” in this life-or-death pursuit. Yet, can she be trusted?

Spiced with history and the supernatural, Demons, Well-Seasoned takes us from 1930s Glasgow, to New Orleans and Harlem in the 1950s, to present day southern California, and back again, on a metaphysical voyage that is both exhilarating and poignant. But before you embark upon this final sail with the denizens of The Secret Spice, be warned: expect to lose sleep, and keep tissues at hand. These valiant characters might just stay with you long after their story comes to a close.

Don’t miss Cooking for Ghosts, and Spells & Oregano, Books I and II in The Secret Spice Café Trilogy.


“To call Demons, Well Seasoned a work of mystery, romance, historical fiction or intrigue would be to do it an injustice. It’s all these things and more: quite simply, a lovely literary romp through time, place, and interconnected lives and spirits that draws in readers and proves riveting to the end. –California Bookwatch

“Davis throws in well-developed secondary characters and many engaging details about food, magicians, psychics and the stately ship herself, all without sacrificing the compelling pace; in fact, these details are equally as engrossing as the heart-racing suspense. …Perfect for readers who enjoy both the supernatural psychological suspense of Jennifer McMahon and those who love Nora Roberts’ storytelling prowess across many genres.”  – IndiePicks Magazine

“With incredible plot twists and fabulous, poignant ending, this final volume by author Patricia V. Davis is the finest of them all. The ship itself truly comes alive with the same detailed and magical description that Davis always incorporates, but there are more far-flung locations to discover through the visionary and clever narrative techniques at play. Demons, Well-Seasoned is an absolute must-read that will not disappoint fans of the epic series.” –Reader’s Favorite

“This intriguing and intense novel is a multi-layered story…a tale of magical realism, mystery, paranormal activity, and suspense. At the same time, it is, at its core, a story of love. Well written, fun, atmospheric. Five out of five stars.” –Eric Guignard, Bram Stoker Award Winner of That Which Grows Wild
