When Lily arrives at an antique jewelry fair, her bargain sensors go off left and right - but she also picks up a faint vibration of magic. Could the hard-bargaining merchant Griselda be a fellow practitioner? It certainly seems that way when a sudden fire sends panic through the crowd, and Lily discovers Griselda murdered in a way that nods to an old-fashioned witch hunt. A crime that hits close to home turns into an unwelcome flash from the past when the police bring in their lead suspect - Lily's estranged father. Though he may not deserve her help, Lily is determined to clear her father's name and solve a murder that's anything but crystal clear.

I have always loved to read but I never realized how enjoyable listening to a good story could be! I am addicted!
It is so much fun to continue wth a new and interesting mystery with Lily Ivory and the same friends that I have met throughout the first four books of this series. Having the same narrator with each has really lended continuity to the series. I hate that this is the last book, but I see that the author has the 6th installment coming out this summer. Can't wait! This nrrator has done a great job and is probably the best I have listened to. I am glad to see that she also narrates Juliet Blackwell's Haunted Home Rennovation Series which I am off to read (listen to, lol) next.
Royal Spyness Series is similar to Juliet Blackwell's Witchcraft series in that it is a light tale of a mystery with a wonderful narrator, Katherine Kellgren is probably tied for first place in my mind with Xe Sands. She really brings the characters alive with different nuances in her voice and it is fun to meet up with the same characters and narrator as the series continues.
I was looking forward to this book but it fell a bit short. It wasn't as interesting as the previous books. Lily shopped and solved mysteries. There wasn't very much to it. The characters are likable but the villain was predictable. I will probably read the next book because I like the series as a whole.
