      I’ve mentioned before that stories with witches aren’t really my reading preference. I’m read this book at the request of the publisher in exchange for an honest review. And I have to say. I honestly enjoyed it!Author Juliet Blackwell is a must buy author for many readers I know. I can see why. She has a passion for writing that clearly showed through in this book. I loved the fact that lead character, Lily, is not only allowed, but is requested to help the police with their investigations [...]

      Juliet Blackwell's mystery series are some of my favorites with the strong female characters, the complex relationships, and the paranormal elements. The Witchcraft mysteries feature Lily Ivory, a witch who owns Aunt Cora's Closet, a vintage clothing store in San Francisco. And, as much as I admire Lily for her continued growth and dedication, it's Oscar, Lily's amusing familiar, a Vietnamese potbellied pig/gargoyle, who has my heart. Lily and Oscar are in top form in the latest book, Spellcasti [...]

      This is a good book in a mystery series I am enjoying.Lily is a hereditary witch, meaning that she has inherited witchy powers; she is not, however, thoroughly trained in their use. This can lead to complications, when she is dragged into paranormal situations and does not always have a good approach.ough she is talented, clever and resourceful.This volume focused on Lily's relationships, as well as the mystery itself. While she started out isolated, she is developing more and more of a family o [...]

      Lily owns Aunt Cora's Closet, a vintage clothing and more store in San Francisco. Lily is also a witch and unofficial consultant to her friend, Carlos, an SFPD detective. A jumper off the Golden Gate Bridge pulls Lily into an investigation of the fortune telling and magic community that combines magic, greed and murder into a powerfully entertaining story. This is Book#7 in the series and it continues the powerfully written characters, fascinating background and intricately plotted magic and mur [...]

      I didn't like the first book in this series, but I'm so glad a friend persuaded me to try the 2nd book! The series has become a favorite of mine. I wasn't sure who the bad guy was until the big reveal and that doesn't happen often. I'm interested to see what's going to happen with Aidan now that he's let Lily in on some information about himself. Look forward to seeing Patience again, too! Recommend!

      I'm still loving this cute, cozy, supernatural mystery series. Every time I start another instalment in this series I chuckle to myself. I would never have thought I would like a series like this, but I love the characters, most specially Oscar, and this series just gives me something light and quick to read when I need a break. Also, the setting is kind of like taking a mini holiday.love San Francisco. I get a hankering to head to SF each time I embark on Lily Ivory's mystery train.In this one [...]

      I very much enjoy Juliet Blackwell's books, either the renovation series or this Lily Ivory story of a young witch finding a place to belong in the world. Her vintage clothing shop is jumping as patrons prepare for the Summer Festival of Love. In the midst of a very busy and happy time, San Francisco's police department's Carlos Ramirez calls Lily to serve as their informal assistant in cases involving paranormal circumstances. He is currently trying to discover why a botanica shop's contents ar [...]

      4.5 StarsSexual Content: Subtle/SensualLanguage (Profanity/Slang) Content Rating: MildViolent Content: ModerateWhen (detective and friend) Carlos approached Lily for help on a case, it was supposed to be on a consulting basis. A field trip with Carlos and brief Q&As with the magical community was all that was required by him, but Lily was sucked into this magical mystery of murder and who knows what else, and the only other thing to do was for me to get sucked in right along with her.All of [...]

      Ah, what can I say? Just the first two paragraphs felt a little like coming home.I've been a fan of this series for years, it's at the very top of my must-reads!As always, the characters are charming and compelling, I feel like I've gotten to know Lily over the years, and I love how she's grown and accepted herself. I don't know how Juliet does it, but Lily just never gets boring and never stops growing. Lilys a witch, and one of the struggles she faces in this book is all too human, and very po [...]

      One of the things I adore about this series is Lily's growth. She started out as unsure, not trusting others, and a bit of a recluse. She's gradually opened up, she has friends (who love her just as she is), she's in a relationship. This book further explores her relationship with Sailor, she has to deal with jealousy and trust. She's stronger for it. I think this book focuses more on Lily's personal life than past books. The mystery is still there (as the "unofficial witchy consultant of the SF [...]

    11. Jeanne Adamek on said:

      I really like Lily. I remember feeling and thinking like her, of course not like a witch, but in general. I love the fact that when I started this story (and actually all the books in this series) I could just read--there where no feelings of dis-belief or "come on, that is ridiculous" even though I knew that it was made up. Only a really good author can do something like that.And of course Oscar was wonderul, grumpy but really loyal.It could be me, but I felt like the story was a bit darker, wi [...]

      I love this series!! Strong, likeable characters, and a fun, eclectic setting. Still learning her Craft, Lily owns a vintage clothing store in San Francisco, the Haight area. She's also an unofficial Witchy consultant to the local PD. She does more than consult tho~~ she gets herself involved in some pretty dire situations. In this book, a young woman's death is being blamed on one of the shop owners, who deals in herbs, candles and spells. Lily takes it upon herself to prove the shop owner wron [...]

      Juliet Blackwell is amongst my favorite cozy mystery writers and I have enjoyed every single thing she's written so far, spanning across three series. This series is hands down my favorite though. The murderer came completely out of left-field for me; upon reflection I can say I probably should have seen it, but I didn't.Wordy version: jennoklikes/post/121207

      Really fun series. Witchy detecting, vintage clothing, pet pig, hot guys and San Francisco.

    15. Haeja on said:

      Always a cozy read, but this time the mystery didn't involve clothes, which was weird for me. Still, looking forward to the next one. Juliet, please don't stop writing this series!

    16. Miriam on said:

      It's a quick, easy, fun read. Perfect for travel because it's easy to pick up and put down. Don't expect great writing.

    17. Beverly on said:

      This is just a really nice cozy series to read in between other more intense subjects. It started out Lily Ivory was the new witch in town and she has grown into an important part of the Haight Ashbury community. She is involved in the magical community and the normal community. Her powers are much stronger than most suspect. She helps the SFPD solve murders when asked. In this book of the series, she is helping prove the murder of two people, made aware of a strong chaotic magic on the loose an [...]

      Hmm, how to differentiate this book from the others in the series? Lily and Sailor are officially dating. She gets jealous of the "cousin" Sailor is training his gypsy psychic senses with, but then Lily and cousin Patience have an adventure with somebody shooting at them in these old bathhouse ruins. Lily takes in a young witch for a few days who reminds her of herself. And the mystery is about a woman who jumped off Golden Gate bridge, tangled up with the curandera who is the teenager's grandmo [...]

    19. Rosemary on said:

      This series is so much fun to read. In this book, Lily is really realizing her magic potentials. But will having them mean she will have to give up things/people she loves? I liked how new people come into the story line in this book and the potential for more intrigue in Lilys life. I highly recommend this series be read in order because each book continues the story so well each book adds to the fun

    20. Jessie Wheeler on said:

      This one was one of my favorites! Good guys win, bad guys lose and Lily is happy!

    21. Jean on said:

      Plot is intriguing with villain as a surprise. About 1/3 through the book the side plots were a bit confusing. Characters are interesting and some just plain funny.

    22. Snap on said:

      I have no idea where this book came from. It just happened to be on top of one of the many stacks of books I have to read. I enjoyed this book so much: Lily and her pals are something else. I went out and bought some of the previous books in the series. Wickedly good!
