Lily Ivory is a witch that runs a new vintage clothing store in San Francisco... Her new "familiar" is a goblin/pot bellied pig, Oscar. Bronwyn runs the herb counter in her story and Myra scouts for new clothing she can sell.
Aiden is a male witch who gives her Oscar and helps her with some magic.
Max is a man who doesn't believe in witchcraft or magic at all, but falls for Lily none-the-less.
A group of fun and entertaining characters made this book very interesting and kept me reading fast. :)
Looking forward to reading the 2nd book of the series..
Description from the publisher:
Lily Ivory is not your average witch. Her spell-casting powers tend to draw mischievous spirits while keeping normal humans at a distance. But now her vintage clothing store could give her a chance to make friends in San Francisco....
Lily hopes for a normal life when she opens Aunt Cora's Closet. With her magical knack for vintage fashion -she can sense vibrations of the past from clothing and jewelry—her store becomes a big hit.
But when a client is murdered and children start disappearing from the Bay Area, Lily may be the only one who can unravel the crime. She tries to keep her identity a secret while investigating, but it's not easy—especially under the spells of sexy "mythbuster" Max Carmichael and powerful witch Aidan Rhodes. Will Lily's witchy ways be forced out of the closet?
