Look out Hemlock Cove, Aunt Tillie is on a rampage. What else is new, right? She's determined to move her wine business to the next level, and she needs twenty-four hours of peace and quiet to do it. There's only one thing standing in her way. Well, make that a whole family of obstacles ... and one ticked-off FBI agent. When cousins Bay, Clove and Thistle vow to stop their great-aunt's wine endeavor in its tracks, Aunt Tillie is forced to come up with a unique solution. In order to keep her great-nieces out of her hair, she curses them into a book of fairy tales. Of course, because it's Aunt Tillie, these aren't normal fairy tales. They're the fairy tales she created - with a little inspiration from the classics. Now Bay, Clove and Thistle have to work their way through a labyrinth of stories they haven't heard since they were kids - and they have to take Landon, Marcus and Sam along for the ride. Will Bay get eaten by bears? Will Thistle kiss a frog? Will Sam climb Clove's hair to rescue her from a tower? And, better yet, will Landon turn himself into a prince and slip a glass slipper on Bay's foot? Each task becomes harder as the story progresses, and as the tales darken, things start to become dangerous. Can the Winchester witches survive Aunt Tillie's twisted mind? Or will they be lost in a book forever?
