While created as part of licensed material, the novel series Wicked Willow takes place in an alternate universe, and as such is not part of the "real" Buffyverse.
The Ghost of Tara has disappeared. At first Willow thought it was because of something she’d done — or worse, that the universe was again conspiring to hurt her. But it’s almost impossible to keep secrets from a witch, especially one as powerful as Willow, and ultimately she learns that Buffy and the gang are the culprits.
Willow desperately wants Tara back. Not only does she miss her immensely, the spirit’s presence is necessary to perform the resurrection spell Willow’s been working on. Though her first impulse is to charge off and bring her wrath down upon the heads of her old friends, her coven reminds her that in the past, when Willow has allowed anger to control her, she has failed. Willow must develop an alternate plan to regain Tara’s spirit and perform the spell.
Buffy and the Scoobies hope to drain Willow’s power, and release Spike and Oz from their enslavement. But Willow’s anger is endless, and it seems she’ll stop at nothing in her fight to bring Tara back, no matter what the cost…
