I loved this book. I love the series. It's the perfect book to curl up with a warm drink and a fuzzy throw. ( )

First off, this book is so much better written and more interesting & has a stronger (seemingly not so stupid) heroine in comparison to many of the other Paranormal Mystery/romances I've read.

Lily Ivory owns Aunt Cora's Closet, a vintage clothing resale shop. Her familiar, Oscar, may look like a pot-bellied pig, but in reality is a Gargoyle.

While Lily is in attendance at an Art Deco Ball in Oakland, a member of a local coven is poisoned and trapped in the woman's restroom mirror. Two days before another member of the same coven was poisoned & died. Lily takes it upon herself to free the trapped woman and comes across magick at every turn. Some good, some bad.

Meanwhile, Lily's shop and those of several other "practitioners" have been vandalized by a local hate group.

There is some light romance along the way, disappearing men, and a tad bit of humor. There is also some mention of magickal & poisonous herbs.

This book held my interest and was a light/fun read. ( )

First Thought when Finished: In a Witch's Wardrobe by Juliet Blackwell is my favorite in the series so far! That is saying a lot because I have enjoyed each of them.

Overall Thoughts: This is one of those cozy mystery series where the characters are done right. Lily doesn't fight/look down on/snub her nose at the law. Instead she works with them. The supporting cast all play very important roles in her life and while flawed they are lovable in their own right. Lily isn't perfect either and that makes her totally easy to relate too. Her internal dialogue while witchy is very identifiable :) The mystery in this one stumped me. I totally didn't figure it out and loved the twists/turns it took a long the way. I like the new characters that were introduced and hope we see more of them. I even like her personal life (though still messy) now. All in all just a darn good read!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Xe Sands / Length: 8 hrs and 16 mins

Xe does an excellent job with this series. Her male voices are strong and unique (something I sometimes have a hard time with) and her female voices are spot on. Even when I am reading these stories (because I often flip back/forth between audio/paper), I can hear her doing Lily. I love when a narration just sticks with you! I highly recommend these on audio.
