Overview

As the owner of a popular vintage clothing store, Lily Ivory can enjoy a day of antique jewelry shopping and still call it work. But as one of San Francisco’s resident witches, searching for hidden treasures can sometimes lead to dangerous discoveries…
 
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.

    Fast-Paced Paranormal Mystery

    The latest in Blackwell's Witchcraft Mystery series is quick and entertaining. We finally get to meet Lily's mysterious father, and the interrupted romance between Lily and Sailor picks up again. My only real complaint is the rushed resolution: the confrontation with the demon Xolotl needed more detail, and the denouement was more tell than show. Still, this book was a lot of fun, and I look forward to the next installment. -- lyradora

    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.

    As always, I love Blackwell's books. I especially enjoy the audio versions of A Witchcraft Mystery series.
     This book was very good except the ending just sort of stopped. A little too anticlimactic, in my opinion.
    I've never exorcised a demon, but I would think it wouldn't just disappear that easily after a full book of horrible events occurred.
     I might have missed something along the way. I still highly recommend her books for cozy mystery reading with a magical touch.

    Another great book in this series by Juliet Blackwell!

    The story is fun and lively with a good dose of suspense.  Some background stories are brought together and Lily's father's introduction is a plus.  
    Old characters return and are as welcome as ever.
    The author's writing is maturing as evidenced by her opening chapter which I think is some of her best writing yet.  Other examples put the story in the context of San Francisco.
    This book can be read by itself but, as always, I recommend reading the preceding ones for a more enjoyable experience.
    I strongly recommend this book and can't wait for the next one in the series!
