Lily Ivory is living her dream of owning a vintage clothing store—and practicing magic on the side. But when she encounters a sinister sleeping spell, Lily comes face-to-face with a nightmarish evil…
Taking a night off from running her successful San Francisco clothing store, Lily attends a local art deco ball where vintage fashions steal the show. But when a young woman at the event falls under a mysterious sleeping sickness, Lily senses that a curse was placed on the woman’s corsage.
Before Lily can solve the woman’s magical ailment, she’s asked to assist in investigating a string of poisonings in the Bay Area witchcraft community. She’s gained the trust of the local covens by supporting women’s charities through her clothing store. But soon, Lily suspects that one of her new acquaintances might not be so well intentioned and could be dabbling in dark magic and deadly botany…****************
One of my favorite series that gets better with each book entry. It could be a light fluffy paranormal cozy, but it's not. Lily Ivory wants to be a good shopowner and witch and fit in, but events keep putting her out there. This time she is in the thick of a magical event that has trapped a young woman in a coma and a local coven might be to blame. Too many incidents keep leading that way and Lily isn't sure how to handle it. But handle it she does.
This is one of those series that I get each book entry as soon as it comes out and anxiously look forward to the next.
