A Cast-Off Coven
A Witchcraft Mystery
San Francisco vintage clothing store owner Lily Ivory must put her more magical abilities to good use in this mystery in the New York Times bestselling Witchcraft series.
When some students get spooked at the San Francisco School of Fine Arts, Lily Ivory is called in to search for possible paranormal activity. In exchange for her help, she’s been promised a trunk full of Victorian era clothes recently discovered in a school storage closet.
What she finds at the foot of the stairs leading to the bell tower is a body—a wealthy patron of the school who has been murdered. She uses her sleuthing skills in between running the store and seeing her new boyfriend, Max, a “mythbuster” uncomfortable with her witchcraft. Soon Lily senses something from the school’s vintage clothes. But it’s not the smell of mothballs—it’s the unmistakable aura of evil intent...
A Fun Second Installment
I thoroughly enjoyed "Secondhand Spirits," the first volume in the Witchcraft Mystery series, so I was hoping the second book would be just as good. Fortunately, it is. :) Characters from the first book return, new characters are introduced, and Lily and Max' relationship continues to grow stronger -- though he remains skeptical of her claims of being a witch. The mystery is intriguing, and the final exorcism is exciting. Lots of fun. :)
Liked it very much!
Cute book, with lovable characters. Looking forward to more!
