Yes I would listen to this again. Love the story and the characters...the only thing that bugged me was Xe Sands reading of the book. She made the main character sound like a creaky old woman...it did not work for me. But Juliet Blackwell's mystery series is great:)
Lily Ivory the main character is great, funny and smart.
The main character is young so a younger voice that doesn't sound old and creaky. The voice sounded more like Graciella not Lily.
The ending was unexpected and exciting.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes interesting characters.
The whole ongrowing relationship with her "pet" was very sweet.
Xe Sands performed all characters well, especially Lily.
I read the book a few years ago, and enjoyed it even more on audio. Great characters, read well! Wish you had more of her books!
Any with the pot bellied pig/gargoyle.
When she almost drowned saving the child.
She also writes as Hailey Lind and wish you had these books as well.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
Lily is a witch in hiding. She runs a vintage clothing store. While visiting a client, a neighbors child is taken. Lily is determined to get her back. The client had had her child taken also 35 years ago from the same neighborhood......co incidence? Hhmm this is only the beginning. With a newspaper, mythbuster on her trail, the head of the witches (Aiden), a vodoo priest and a johnny on the spot neighborhood hottie all add to the scenerio to aide her in her quest makes for pretty good story telling.
I am an artist and I love to listen to books while I work. Books have always been an important part of my life. Audible Rocks!
This is the start to a series. I love a good series but won't be buying this one. It barely kept my interest, but I did finish it. The reader almost puts me to sleep. The characters were OK, the only humor was the gargoyle. A book about a witch needs some humor to make it work. I geuss the one word I would use to describe this book is "Forgettable"
I won't remember it by next week.
This book has a cute storyline That's got just enough mystery to keep you intrigued, a perfect light summer read. The narrator doesn't enunciate and in some parts she is hard to understand, which distracts from the book.
The story is great, keeps you interested. The narrator has a tendency to speak quietly and her sentences trail off at the end. It makes it difficult to listen to in the car but you get used to her. I'm on the second book and it sounds as if there was enough criticism of her narration to merit a change. All in all I really enjoyed this book.
All of her books are wonderful light reading and exceptional narration love the whole series
I was pleasantly surprised by this book, which offered a light, fun read. It didn't blow me away, but I found myself charmed by Lily, her shop, and her developing collection of friends. And, I'm always charmed by San Francisco, which Blackwell treated as another character. There was enough action and pace to keep things interesting. It seems like a solid foundation for a series, and I will read on.
