Publisher's Summary

As witch and vintage store owner Lily Ivory steps into her new role as leader of the Bay Area's magical community, she's faced with a mysterious death of magical proportions....

Strange things are happening in Lily Ivory's San Francisco. First, she finds a vintage mermaid costume that dates from the 1939 San Francisco's Treasure Island World's Fair - and which gives off distinctly peculiar vibrations. Next, she stumbles upon a dead man in the office of her predecessor, and as the community's new leader, she feels compelled to track down the culprit. Just when Lily thinks things can't get any stranger, a man appears claiming to be her half brother, spouting ideas about the mystical prophecy involving San Francisco and their family....

When the dead man is linked to the mysterious mermaid costume and then yet another victim is found on Treasure Island, Lily uncovers ties between the long-ago World's Fair and the current murders and begins to wonder whether the killer might be hiding in plain sight. But unless Lily can figure everything out in time, there may be yet another body floating in San Francisco Bay.

Love the series

Stumbled on the series while looking for something to listen to while waiting for the next book to become available by some of my favorite authors. Really enjoyed the series and hope more stories are in the future. Now I just need to check out Juliet’s other books.

A bit flat

Not one of my faves of this series. A bit flat. I predicted part of the ending. Seems like a story that is building up for another story instead of standing on its own.

5 stars

Synchronized Sorcery is an enjoyable cozy mystery but the ending was a little bit rushed. The mystery was solved quickly and then the characters moved on to something else. However, I enjoyed it and look forward to seeing what happens next.

Disappointing

Ive followed this whole series and have really enjoyed it. I always look forward to the next book. It feels now like its possibly gone on too long as this one felt like a bit of a damp squib. Apart from a few amusing interactions between Sailor and Oscar, it was underwhelming. Lily is supposed to have these amazing magical powers but you never really get to see them being used. I cant imagine how difficult it is to write a story so I truly admire anyone who can do that. However this just felt unsatisfying and at times as though parts of previous stories were being repeated. However...Im so thankful for the stories up till now as the first few were so new and different to anything that was available at the time.
