Hexes and Hemlines (A Witchcraft Mystery #3) by Juliet Blackwell is a fun cozy, witchy mystery. I like the supernatural and it is a nice break for the heavier books to read a cozy book once in a while so this is perfect. It is a easy and fun read that kept me entertained. ( )

Lily Ivory, natural witch, owns Aunt Cora's Closet Vintage Clothing Shop.....

SFPD Detective, Carlos Romero calls Lily for help in finding the murderer of Malachi Zazi, who was the 13th member of a group of debunkers, who have all been having a run of bad luck.

While investigating the crime scene with Sailor, Lily comes across some powerful black magic & a rattlesnake......

Things spin out of control from there.....more and more bad magic comes into play.

Meanwhile, Max comes back to town, things heat up with Aidan, and we learn more about Lily's past and why she left Texas in the middle of the night....

The book has less to do with the actual crime & goings on of the suspects and focuses more on the magickal aspect....

I plan on reading the next one when it it published.

First Thought when Finished: Hexes and Hemlines by Juliet Blackwell while not being my favorite in the series was still a pretty darn good read!

Overall Thoughts

1: While this wasn't my favorite in the series. I still had a really good time reading it.
2: The more I read this series, the more I wished I could find a vintage clothing shop near me.
3: The side characters make this series. I was a little sad that I didn't get enough of them.
4: Lily is whip smart!
5: Need more Sailor! (and Oscar to boot)

Audio Thoughts

Narrated by: Xe Sands /Length: 7 hrs and 42 mins / Publisher: Tantor Audio

Xe nails Lily! She brings her to life and adds a richness to the character. She does a really good job with all the characters--making them unique and fun. I really enjoy this series on audio.

To Jane Lawes
Thank you for the magic - I miss you so.
First words
It didn't take a witch to figure out something was very, very wrong on the thirteenth floor of the Doppler Building.
'Tis the night - the night
Of the grave's delight,
And the warlocks are at their play;
Ye think that without
the wild winds shout,
But no, it is they - it is they. - Arthur Cleveland Coxe

Book description
With her vintage clothing store taking off, Lily Ivory is finding that life in San Francisco suits her just fine. But her ability to sense vibrations from the past, so useful in locating secondhand gems, has landed her in the middle of a new mystery...
Lily gets called away from Aunt Cora's Closet when the police need a witch's take on a strange case. Malachi Zazi was stabbed to death in his apartment, under a ladder, surrounded by the number thirteen, a broken mirror, and a black cat - superstitions that the victim, as head of a rationalist society, was devoted to discrediting.
When the police identify a suspect from the Serpentarian Society, Lily is shocked to learn it's someone she knows. But with bad luck plaguing all the members, she begins to wonder if there's more at work than mere coincidence. And while there aren't many clues from the crime scene, Lily finds evidence of dark witchcraft and a hex on her friend's doorstep. With her friend's safety at stake, Lily is determined to use magic to find the murderer before everyone's luck runs out...
