Oh, I just adore this series. My only problem is that I would enjoy reading one novel per month in it...poor Author groans.

Seriously, I love the location, San Francisco, Ca. I love the characters or find them extremely interesting, such as our lovely witch sleuth, Lily, her mentor, Aidan, her friends, Bronwyn, Maya, and of course, who can't be enamored with Oscar, the Pig. There are several other characters that are now gaining the stage...like Sailor and his Auntie, Herve and I could go on and on.

The SFPD starts Lily's troubles when they ask for her unofficial help in assessing a murder scene. Lily is perplexed by what she views. On top of it, Bronwyn asks for Lily's help with her daughter. Although warned off the case by Aidan, Lily feels she has to aid her new friends. Now, we have a fight among witches and forest dwellers and oh so much more. Why? In the name of Beauty.

I find the amount of data and details that Ms. Blackwell uses in this series to be compelling reading. I do realize it is a work of fiction, but, you do ask yourself, "Just how much is fiction?" or "I wonder the amount of research that has been done?"

I found this book to be entertaining, credible to an extent, and makes me want to read the next installment.

She searched the world to find a place she could call home and Lily Ivory found it at the corner of Haight and Asbury in San Francisco. Lily is a genuine witch trained by her grandma in the craft though she never completed her studies as she was run out of her hometown. She owns a vintage clothing store, but also has helped the police on investigations using her magic.

SFPD asks her to help with the inquiry into the death of Malachi Zozi whose body is surrounded by bad luck symbols. She cannot read anything from the body and the clothes in the apartment so Lily concludes someone magically wiped clean the magical aura. When she sees a picture of Malachi alive and well, she tells her mentor Aidan, the powerful lead witch of the craft in the Bay area, who warns her to stay away from the case. However, her best friend Bronwyn the Wiccan asks Lily to help because her son-in-law is a person of interest by the cops. Soon afterward, Bronwyn begs her to stop the investigation; as does a witch capable of bending time. Ignoring them, Lily feels it is her duty to catch a killer though her efforts place her in peril.

This exciting urban fantasy murder mystery (see A Castoff Coven) is an entertaining paranormal whodunit. Lily's persistence as an amateur sleuth hooks the audience who is unsure whether to scream at her to back off or to encourage her to charge forward. Her familiar Oscar, a half goblin-gargoyle becomes a cute pot bellied pig who adds jocularity to the fast-paced story line as part of the quirky cast (benign, kind, and evil) that helps make this spellbinding tale a fun read.

Hexes and Hemlines was such a wonderful follow-up to Juliet Blackwell's first two books in the Lily Ivory series. In this latest adventure, Blackwell graciously chose to shed a little more light on my favorite mysterious characters like Aidan and the loveable Oscar. Bonus: she gives up some background info on the moody Sailor. She shared just enough... Of course now I have even more questions, which ends up being quite fun! I cannot wait until the next book is in my greedy little hands.

Blackwell not only makes her readers want more, she writes with absolute class - something that seems to be a challenge for other authors who walk the line with fun, interesting, and (even) sexy characters. I definitely recommend this series... but don't read it too quickly like I did! Instead, savor it!

It's hard for the follow-up books in a new cozy mystery series to live up to the original. In the first book, we readers have the delicious advantage of the unknown. Because all the characters are new, ANYone could be the dastardly villain, and everybody's schtick is something to be discovered. By the second or third book, the author has established the protagonist's circle of friends and you get caught up in their lives as well as Our Heroine's.

So I'm especially pleased that Juliet Blackwell's Witchcraft Mysteries continues to please. If you liked the earlier novels, I'm sure you will like this one, too.

By this point the setup is established: Lily is a real witch whose upbringing made her reluctant to share the (or any) truth about herself. But when she decided to settle down in Haight Ashbury with a vintage fashion shop (in present day San Francisco) she discovered a community of people to care about, from the local coffeehouse staff to Wicca practitioners to the local (real) magic-wielding people. Not to mention her familiar, who shape-shifts to a pot-bellied pig when others are around. Like any self-respecting cozy mystery protagonist, she has also backed her way into involvement with local murders that need to be solved... with paranormal talents, of course.

In this third novel, the police actually ask for Lily's help. A man who was bound and determined to prove that "bad luck" superstitions are ridiculous (the number 13, walking under a ladder) is killed... and all his associates seem to be suffering from bad luck, too.
