Описание

When Lily arrives at an antique jewelry fair, her bargain sensors go off left and right-but she also picks up a faint vibration of magic. Could the hard-bargaining merchant Griselda be a fellow practitioner? It certainly seems that way when a sudden fire sends panic through the crowd, and Lily discovers Griselda murdered in a way that nods to an old-fashioned witch hunt.



A crime that hits close to home turns into an unwelcome flash from the past when the police bring in their lead suspect-Lily's estranged father. Though he may not deserve her help, Lily is determined to clear her father's name and solve a murder that's anything but crystal clear.

    Lily Ivory is a witch of powerful lineage, now living in San Francisco......

    She is up against an Aztec Fire Demon, her estranged father is in town, her run-away boyfriend shows up, powerful witches are being murdered...... An Aztec power object is missing......

    I enjoyed this book, it seemed realistic, no frippery, nothing too outrageous, no over-the-top drama, no mindless chatter or stupidity.

    This was a fast, easy & satisfying read.

    Love these lighthearted mysteries. Good character development and neat plots.

    I always enjoy the books from this series. The mixture of witches and their magic with everyday problems and a few murder mysteries makes them very interesting. Really good beach read! Recommended!

    I just love these mysteries. I'm not sure why, but they feel like "comfort reading" (or listening, as the narrator Xe Sands plays a large role in what I like about the stories). I don't really relate to Lily from my own personal experience, but I really like her as a character, and I enjoy spending time in the world she inhabits.

    This is a good book in an entertaining series. While Lily's relationships wit many of her recent friends and associates are not primary here, it does address her relationship with her sketchy father, as well as depicting various complications that seem to be demon-created. Lily's mojo isn't as effective this time around, though, since her affinity is for textiles and the McGuffin is a piece of jewelry...It was a fairly quick and fun read, and I liked the time spent with Oscar, and that Sailor has re-entered the picture.If you like fairly cozy mysteries with a magical component, you'll probably like this series.

    My least favorite book of the series to this point. It seemed a lot darker than the others, and I prefer my cozy mysteries to be a little more light and fun. However, I do hope that Ms. Blackwell will further explore the relationship between Lily and her father, Declan.

    4.5 stars. Excellent read I didn't want to put down until it was over. The characters feel like friends at this point and it's nice to 'visit' with them at Aunt Cora's Closet.

    The plot line is a big one - maybe a teensy bit too big even for the suspension of disbelief - but a fun one. Even though the 'bad guys' are clear from the beginning, the villain of the murder wasn't at all and surprised me a bit.

    I'd have liked to see a bit more of Sailor but at least he puts in his appearance eventually. Some explanations of behaviour would be nice too. But I can't wait until I get to visit the gang again. I'm only sorry I'll have to wait another year to do it.

    This installment in the Witchcraft series is as enjoyable as all of the previous books. The characters continue to grow and blend into a believable community in San Francisco. The writing is strong and the plot lines completely engaging. I highly recommend this book!

    Enjoyable entry. Get to meet her father, kind of.. Sailor is back, but doesn't really say where he has been. Aidan is being mysterious.

    Loved this one. Can’t wait for the next one.

    The best book of the series-so far.
    I love this author's way of revealing her story. I can "see" it as if there was a DVD playing in my head. Thank you for the hours of enjoyment.

    In Blackwell’s paranormal mystery novel, Lily Ivory, owner of Cora’s Closet of vintage clothing, visits the gem fair with all its antique jewelry and rare stones, only to have her “witchy” senses pick up a faint trace of magic in the air. Suspecting another practitioner was at the fair, she’s taken by surprise when fires ignite and panic flares. When all is said and done, one of the merchants is found dead—murdered in such a way that it could have been history repeating the witch hunts.With a crime that hits close to home, Lily turns only to find herself facing her long-gone father—and the police’s prime suspect. Regardless of their painful past, Lily is determined to clear his name and solve the murder.An extraordinarily entertaining read and smashing addition to the A Witchcraft Mystery series.
