    I love this series

    I've read this series before and enjoying reading it again. If you are into fashion and vintage clothing and enjoy a good fun mystery then this is the book for you.

    Another Hit!

    Annette Blair does it again with her latest book in her series. I really enjoyed the book. It was a fun read that had a nice twist for the mystery. I enjoyed the new chemistry between Maddie and Detective Werner.

    DId not find good for second in a series

    I was disapppointed in this book. Bought both the 1st and 2nd book at the same time and read them back to back. The first one was a lot more interesting and had more dimension to it. This one made too many references to information already learned in the 1st book and didn't develope the plot line very well. I finished it to finish it, but I have decided not to buy anymore of her books in this series.

    Tries too hard

    I felt like this author was trying too hard and what I kept noticing was "technique" sorts of stuff, like the use of unfinished sentences and the fashion quotes. Sorry but those quotes really had nothing to do with the story. The story was good and I didn't stop reading but I am not sure I'd spend my money on more of her books in this series.

    a fun read

    This is a short and fun little story. A good quick read on a rainy afternoon.

    A twist on the usual mystery with a little magic thrown in.

    This is the second in Annette Blair's A Vintage Magic Mystery series. Great as a stand alone book but has some contining threads from the first book. A little vintage fashion, a little witchcraft, a few ghosts, and a mystery with a twist. Can't wait for the next installment.

    The second Vintage Magic mystery (see A VEILED DECEPTION) is a wonderful investigative tale

    She originally came to Mystick Falls, Connecticut for her sister's wedding (see A Veiled Deception) that turned ugly with the homicide of the groom's mother. However she has remained in the picturesque small town thanks to her centenarian friend Dolly Sweet giving her a building to house her new business. Madeira "Mad" Cutler knows the renovations from the Underhill Funeral Chapel carriage house is almost complete and in two weeks she will open the doors to Vintage Magic, a dress shop with historical classics and originals.

    The construction crew has just left the facility when Maddie hears a noise; the intruder escapes and her spirited resident Dante the ghost says the person is male, but has no idea who he is. An arson set blaze destroys the historical playhouse across the street from Vintage Magic. While Maddie was there, her invader returned stealing the three decade old bones wrapped in a quilt and hidden in a drawer. Detective Sergeant Lytton Werner tells Maddie to stay out of his investigation and calls her shop a crime scene. However between Dante's tips and her psychometric skill to see things that occurred by touching them, she tries to piece together what happened before the Halloween grand opening. Aunt Fiona, chairman of the Southeast Connecticut Chapter of the White Star Circle of Spirit arrives to help or hinder depending on who you ask at a time someone wants her dead with Dante, her best friend Eve, and Lytton trying to prevent her death.

    The second Vintage Magic mystery (see A VEILED DECEPTION) is a wonderful investigative tale that will have armchair readers spellbound trying to solve the case before Maddie can. The inquiry enables the audience to learn more about the heroine's family especially her father and aunt, as well as her BFF. With whimsy, humor and Dante to round out the magic, fans will enjoy this entertaining paranormal amateur sleuth while wondering if Lytton will become the latest cop bewitched by Mad Maddie.
