    Lily Ivory hopes for a normal life when she opens Aunt Cora's Closet.

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.

    Sherry says: "Witches and fashion - what's not to like!"

    Would you listen to Secondhand Spirits again? Why?

    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:)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lily Ivory the main character is great, funny and smart.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The main character is young so a younger voice that doesn't sound old and creaky. The voice sounded more like Graciella not Lily.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending was unexpected and exciting.

    Between brewing magically spiced treats at Honeybee Bakery and volunteering with a local conservation group, Katie Lightfoot barely has time to see her firefighter boyfriend, Declan McCarthy, much less delve further into her destiny as a witch. But avoiding her fate won't be as easy as whipping up a new recipe-especially when Katie finds herself once again mixed up in murder.

    Cozy Reader says: "Thoroughly Enjoyable Mystery & Great on Audio"
    "The story is fun but the narrator needs help."

    Would you listen to Charms and Chocolate Chips again? Why?

    I love Bailey Cates' Magical Bakery Mystery series. This next in the series keeps the fun and mystery going. I love how Savanna itself is a character adding charm to the story. If you love cozy mysteries with food or witches (very light magic in this) then you will love this series.

    The only bad part is that the narrator never bothers to research the correct pronunciation of words and just stumbles through the story. I like her voice but the mispronounced words takes me out of the story and bothers me.

    Otherwise if you can get past the narration issues this is a wonderful series.

    Here is a new collector's edition of this modern classic as you have never heard it before, read by Natalie Goldberg herself, and then infused with her most personal reflections about this "magic manual" for all writers. Try these ingenious, Zen-based exercises to expand your writing skills ¿ or just for fun.

    If you could sum up Writing Down the Bones in three words, what would they be?

    Inspirational and challenging.


    What other book might you compare Writing Down the Bones to and why?

    If you want to write by Barbara Ueland's "If You Want to Write" and "Writting Down the Bones" give experienced and new writers great advice for building confidence as a writer and supportive personal stories of their own growth and journey as writers. The writing world is much less lonely with Goldberg and Ueland by your side.


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone that has the desire to put pen to page should pick up this book. Somewhere in the pages you will find a spark, an idea that will get you writing. All around wonderful book.
