Lily Ivory is not your average witch. Her spell-casting powers tend to draw mischievous spirits while keeping normal humans at a distance. But now her vintage clothing store could give her a chance to make friends in San Francisco....
Lily hopes for a normal life when she opens Aunt Cora's Closet. With her magical knack for vintage fashion -she can sense vibrations of the past from clothing and jewelry—her store becomes a big hit.
But when a client is murdered and children start disappearing from the Bay Area, Lily may be the only one who can unravel the crime. She tries to keep her identity a secret while investigating, but it's not easy—especially under the spells of sexy "mythbuster" Max Carmichael and powerful witch Aidan Rhodes. Will Lily's witchy ways be forced out of the closet?
My take on this book: CAUTION! IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS BOOK YET. CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN RISK! THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!
Hello my fellow readers! Baroness Karen here for another book review. This one was sooo good. Even if I had to stop it to work on this blog and had to reread it from the beginning to the point I was at. Anyways off to the book review.
I love everything about this book. Especially since it combines Supernatural, Mystery, and Romance altogether. This book was a good one. Granted I didn’t think it would be but it turned out to be good. The reason I didn’t think it would be was all because my mom bought the book at an airport and we all know that sometimes books that come from there are not always good ones. But oh well.
Anyways this book follows the daily life of Lily Ivory. It was quite amazing to see and read about it since mostly I didn’t think much about some of the stuff. Granted there is some Spanish in the book but Miss Blackwell is always able to make sure that you know what that one person said in the next sentence or two. I mean I took a Spanish class in high school and I didn’t really think much when our Spanish teacher told us a little bit about La Llorona. Then in this book when I read that she was in there I was a little bit spooked and felt sorry for all of the kids.
All throughout the book I thought that I knew who the killer was but I was seriously wrong. I even felt sorry for Mrs. Potts only living daughter, Mrs. Potts was the client mentioned in the plot, with what her mother did to her. But then at the end of the book I understood with why and I think the daughter did too. And yes I know that this book is fiction but sometimes I think that the characters are real. Anyways this book is a really good and it will keep you guessing. Or at least it did with me. I am giving this book five stars.
This Review was previously posted on my blogspot site which I will be closing soon.
