    "Loving this series"

    IN A WITCH'S WARDROBE is a well-written, fast-paced supernatural cozy mystery with a little romance and a little action. I wish there was a little more romance for Lilly, but, perhaps that will be in future books. Lilly is slowly realizing what she is capable of and finding her place in San Francisco. The next book seems to offer more challenges for Lily. I can't wait.

    Story
    "Fantastic Series!"

    Witch and vintage clothing store owner, Lily, has a knack for getting herself into "interesting situations". For what starts out as a lovely evening out with fellow witch, Aidan Rhodes, ends up in a mystery when a lady at the Art Deco Ball collpases and Lily thinks foul witchy play is involved!! When Detective Carlos asks for Lily's help with the death of a witch, Tarregan Dark Moon "Tara", Lily thinks the two may be connected. As she delves further into another coven she discovers some very evil magic at play.

    I like the Witchcraft mysteries because they are always unexpected!! Lily's life is never boring. Besides the main mystery there is always a lot going on and I never finish reading one of these and think it was dull. For all the things that Lily is, she certainly isn't dull. In this one Lily gets to go to a fancy ball, try to untangle a murder case and help Miriam, who collapsed at the ball and is in a coma!! If that isn't enough there is also her love life. Definitely not dull.

    Lily is a interesting character. She was chased out of her hometown by witch hunters and hasn't gotten close to anyone. Even her own mother doesn't like that she's a witch. But she's settling into a good life now, with her vintage clothing store and making friends with fellow witches. I like watching her life evolve, as she becomes happier with herself and her place in San Francisco.
    The Witchcraft Mysteries are truly magical. They are everything I love about magical cozy mysteries are more than just a murder mystery! I'm excited to start the next one.

    I listened to In a Witch's Wardrobe with the narration by Xe Sands and I can only use one word to describe her narration... flawless. She is the voice of Oscar, Lily's familiar, to me and her narration is part of the reason I love this series so much. If you like audiobooks I suggest trying this series on audio.

    When Lilly & Saylor fell in love! I wish he would come back!

    Story
    "I really want to go shopping at her store."

    Lily Ivory books are not books that I feel that I have to read one right after another, but I do enjoy them and will read them all eventually. For those who like a clean paranormal story without detailed sex or cussing, this series would be a good selection. I really like the friendships Lily has formed. I also enjoy how Lily tries to help others the only way she knows how. I hope that Lily's love life stays on this same trek, I have liked Sailor from the beginning. There is no great mystery here with this book, it was slightly predictable, but that is not the charm of this series. I do recommend reading in order. My only complaint is that the narrator is so slow I found myself nodding off some, so I against my better judgment I increased the speed on the narration and found that I wasn't quite as bored with her reading.

    Story
    "Good cozy mystery with believable magic"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    In Juliet Blackwell's "A Witchcraft Mystery" series, she creates a world in which natural witches and witches who had no skills before training exist side by side, each learning and practicing differently, but each having an effect.


    What does Xe Sands bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Xe Sands really brings Blackwell's characters to life. I can visualize them better. Excellent narration.


    If you could take any character from In a Witch's Wardrobe out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Lily. She sounds like she'd be a good conversationalist.

    "Another gem of a story!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Juliet Blackwell and Xe Sands continue to enchant me with this fourth tale in this series. If you are an admirer of the cozy mysteries, do yourself a favor and start at the beginning of the series and you will be hooked. Don't be scared off by the idea of witchcraft. The author weaves it in nicely and in a way that makes you a believer.

    I've always loved books. Even before I could read I've loved them. Fact or Fiction, I love books. I'd sooner read a book than see a movie.

    Story
    "Blackwell keeps getting better and better"
    If you could sum up In a Witch's Wardrobe in three words, what would they be?

    Witty
    Exciting
    Entertaining


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Oscar; Lily’s familiar. He is the most unusual of characters. He is always entertaining and intriguing. Lily does not know much about him, or even if he is HER familiar, or sent to spy on her. Each book she gets to know a bit more about him. In this book, she inquires about his age and instead of telling her, he just tells her that is a rude question.


    Have you listened to any of Xe Sands’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have only listened to Xe Sands's performances in Blackwell's books. I find her pace and characterization to be very easy to listen to and entertaining.


    If you could rename In a Witch's Wardrobe, what would you call it?

    Mystery in a Mirror.
