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.

This Charming Witch Tale is a Good Read
Any of Juliet Blackwell's books are worth reading if you enjoy lite paranormal tales with a bit or romance. With enough true knowledge of witchcraft, demons, ghosts and all other manor of the paranormal to make her writing makes you believe her tales. Their is always the humor, sarcasm and romance that is in her books to make her characters lovable. So far her villains have been evil, but sometimes you feel sympathetic.
Lily is always my favorite, but Oscar, her gob-goyle familiar often steals the show. Lily is bright and very likable. She can often be too trusting. For someone who is a powerful witch, she never can see it coming.
Xe Sands does a great pig/goblin/gargoyle. In this she also brings to life a few Germans and young girls planing a quinceañera.
Sailor's return, both to San Francisco, but also back into Lily's life.
