Publisher's Summary

Lily would like nothing better than to relax, enjoy her friends, and take care of business at her store, which is booming thanks to San Francisco's upcoming Summer of Love Festival. But as the unofficial witchy consultant to the SFPD, she is pulled into yet another case.

A woman has jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge, and her apparent suicide may be connected to a suspicious botanica in the Mission District. When the police investigate the shop, they ask Lily to look into its mysterious owner, whose granddaughter also appears to be missing. As Lily searches for the truth, she finds herself confronted with a confounding mystery and some very powerful magic.

    "Magical fun"

    This is a fun, magical read. I like the Lily Ivory character because she is bright, funny and curious, yet does not make waves. She also makes practical decisions that the reader can identify with.

    As with all of Juliet Blackwell’s series, there’s lots of magic, mayhem and fun and I look forward to her next book.

    "Another great installment in the Witchcraft Mysteries series"

    This one really keeps you hanging on until the last chapter! I love how Lily is much more comfortable in her own witchy skin. She's grown so much through the series and it really shows here. I LOVE that a previous character returned and am already looking forward to future installments to see what happens in that person's story. Xe Sands did an excellent job with narration once again. I could listen to her all day.

    "The book is fab!"

    As always Juliet's new book is a fun lighthearted adventure, but now the characters are beginning to evolve again making us love them more and worry about their fate. It almost seems that this book is part one of a new story line. Anyway, it's totally worth the credit I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    "Silk, silver and Magic.."

    The author captures a flavor of San Francisco the locals consider part of their everyday life. The Golden Gate Bridge, the homeless man, Conrad and the quirky vintage shops that our town is famous for as well. All this while another great Wiccan mystery unfolds. Now she adds a young witch to the brew. Best novel yet. I want more!!!!

    Story
    "Love Lily Ivory"
    What made the experience of listening to Spellcasting in Silk the most enjoyable?

    The Family/friendships with Lily and all her group.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Spellcasting in Silk?

    Lily and Aiden Working together, Lily and Patience working together.


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

    All of the witchcraft mysteries are performed by Xe Sands, so she is the voice of Lily, Sailor and Aiden. Can't imagine anyone else doing these books.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Hollywood always ruins movies made from books.


    Any additional comments?

    Waiting for book 8 ! Like the direction this book is leading Lily, Sailor, and Aiden.

    I once owned the bookstore A Novel Idea. I sold mysteries and cat humor. Put a cat in a mystery, and I'm likely to read it. Book Reviewer.

    "Young witch trying to find her place"

    I very much enjoy Juliet Blackwell's books, either the renovation series or this Lily Ivory story of a young witch finding a place to belong in the world. Her vintage clothing shop is jumping as patrons prepare for the Summer Festival of Love.

    In the midst of a very busy and happy time, San Francisco's police department's Carlos Ramirez calls Lily to serve as their informal assistant in cases involving paranormal circumstances. He is currently trying to discover why a botanica shop's contents are flying around the shop and slowly destroying it in the process.

    At the same time, the SFPD are looking into a woman who jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge to her death. As Lily looks into this case, she finds it may be connected to the mysterious botanica where the owner has been arrested for possible connections to the dead woman as well as the fact that her young teen granddaughter is missing.

    Only Lily can follow the wild theories that defy logic to find answers and the granddaughter, who will be hard to hold onto, since she is very much like a young Lily. Powerful magic is used, but Lily and Sailor and Aidan team up to overcome them.

    The mysteries were easy enough to follow when the author spelled out what she discovered. Left to my own devices, I've never would have figured this out in my mind. I very much enjoyed following Lily and her cohorts.

    On a special note, I continue to thoroughly enjoy the narration of Xe Sands. She brings the words to life without overdoing characters' voices or accents. Yes, there are differences when she reads different characters, but they aren't overdone. She's a woman, and reading a man's lines does not involve pushing her voice as low as possible. Rather she uses a subtle accent or other device to make each character's voice their own. Her melodious and clear voice brings life to the words and is a good part of the reason why I love listening to audiobooks. The great writing and storylines of Juliet Blackwell are other big parts!

    Now I'm off to read another of her many fine books. I think I'll jump to the renovation series this time...
