Publisher's Summary

A supernatural force on the loose in San Francisco and a family reunion keep witch and vintage storeowner Lily Ivory on her toes as she prepares to walk down the aisle....

When Lily Ivory stumbles on the uniform of a former prisoner from Alcatraz and SFPD inspector Carlos Romero's cousin is kidnapped, Lily suspects something dangerous has been unleashed on the ghost-ridden island of Alcatraz. She'll have to sleuth out the culprit - when she's not busy entertaining her visiting relatives and resolving romantic conflicts as her wedding date approaches. Could recent omens be pointing to the magical threat in her adopted city? If so, she'll have to line up her allies to change the fate of the Bay Area. Because no matter what, Lily's determined to celebrate her marriage with her friends by her side - even if it means battling a demonic foe before she can make it to the altar.

Can she save herself, her friends and San Francisco while battling an old nemesis? A great listen, I have already been through it twice since it was released 5 days ago!

Very Good

I have listened to all of the books in this series and have enjoyed them all. The characters grow and develop in each book. The mystery is always well written and flows at a good pace. This book is no different. Action begins early on in the book and it doesn't slow down. As in the other books of this series, Lily is able to get to the heart of the matter and save San Francisco. The down to earth characters makes this series engaging. The characters are believable. Even though it is ultimately Lily who must save the day, she always has help and she doesn't take anyone for granted. This is a great series. I hope there will be more books in the future.

Love this Series!

Juliet Blackwell is such a talented writer. I really enjoy this series as well as the haunted home one. Each book is like opening a delicious box of chocolates. You know you will be entertained and satisfied. Always miss the characters when I finish a book, and can't wait until she writes the next one in the series.

A Juicy Full Throated Story!

I’ve enjoyed this series for a while now and though I felt a few of the earlier books in the series didn’t have enough of a payoff for me, this book DELIVERED! Most unanswered questions were answered- except for the identity of one of cloaked men (no spoilers!) I think there could be plenty more story here to tell if the author chooses. I, for one, hope she does!

Supernatural show down on the way

Lily Ivory is tending her San Francisco vintage clothing store, Aunt Cora’s Closet, when one of her co-workers brings in a shirt believed to be an original Alcatraz prisoner shirt. Using her witchy powers, Lily feels the evil in the shirt and warns everyone not to go near it. An Alcatraz national park ranger picks up the shirt to bring it to Alcatraz for display, but she is kidnapped on Aunt Cora Closet’s doorstep along with the shirt. While Lily Ivory is planning her wedding to Sailor, she hardly has time to search for the missing woman, but she investigates where the shirt came from, how the owner came to have it and why. She uncovers symbols that might tie it to a demon she had defeated at the School of Fine Arts years before. She visits the school to discover the demon is loose. Everyone in the magical community is becoming aware of a great disturbance in the aura around San Francisco. Lily’s grandmother, who raised her, her coven of 13 women, and Lily’s mother have arrived in town all together in a bus in which they’ve taken a circuitous route to California from Texas. They deliberately took their time so their arrival would coincide not only with the date of Lily’s hand-fasting but also with this huge paranormal event. After visiting her mentor, Aidan, head of the magical community, Lily realizes that this is a foretold event where a man and woman join forces to rule San Francisco. Their combined powers would put them above all others, including Aidan. Alcatraz prison, just a short distance from the city of San Francisco, would make an ideal location for this to happen. Many believe the island is haunted and is cursed. Lily investigates these allegations and discovers a very strong vibration in the prison, especially the dungeons underneath the prison. Meanwhile preparations continue for Lily’s wedding. Despite their busy lives, especially now with this supernatural event looming, Lily and Sailor manage to spend quality time together. It comes as no shock that this supernatural showdown is going to occur during a festival planned by a local rich man out on the island. Have Lily and Sailor and their community prepared sufficiently to fight a powerful duo of witches strengthened by a demon? Do they survive the event? Do they get married? This was another charming and scary entry in the series by the Bay. Lily has come of age here, discovering the extent of her witchy powers and also those of being a lovely woman coming into her own. She has gained the support of many supernatural beings yet also has numerous mortal friends. Lily is ready to share her life with Sailor. I find myself cheering her on and hoping everything works out for her because she surely deserves it. The juxtaposition of good versus evil is very evident in several ways, but which will win out?

Another Awesome Adventure with Lily!

I loved seeing more of Lily’s growth in Bewitched & Betrothed. She has come so far in the series and it’s wonderful to see that she — and many of those around her — still have far in their journeys to go. Xe’s narration was perfection, as always. I can’t wait for more.

One of my favorite series!

I usually get bored with series that go beyond 5 books, but this one is so delightful, I could keep going. I've been anxiously awaiting this book, and I hope there will be more to come! Lily Ivory and all her friends are quirky, wonderful characters, and totally believable as real people you would meet in San Francisco. The combination of crime solving, magic, mythical beings and a touch of romance makes these stories my ideal read. I've also decided that Xe Sands is one of my favorite narrators. I love her voice and the rhythm in which she reads.
