A Toxic Trousseau by Juliet Blackwell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another fabulous installment of Blackwell's Witchcraft Mysteries series. Murder, mystery, and romance all rolled into another page turner that I couldn't put down.
Lily Ivory is once again embroiled in a murder investigation- this time the victim is a rival vintage clothing dealer who just happened to serve papers to Lily regarding a personal injury lawsuit claiming that Oscar made her fall and get hurt.
Lily goes to speak to Autumn about the lawsuit and discovers Autumn is very ill, she is taken to the hospital where she passes away. Poor Lily becomes a suspect once again. The police even close down her store to investigate.
But that might be a good thing because Lily has her hands full as the temporary witchy leader of San Francisco while Aiden is away. Plus she has to investigate this murder with a little help from her friends. She discovers there may be witchy things at play in this murder thanks to a cursed trousseau.
Clues are all over the place, she's connecting dots wherever she goes...but who is really involved in the murder and who has other ulterior motives. How can Lily get a clear picture of what is going on with so many coincidences and connections? In the end the murderer might be someone she never even suspected.
Blackwell is a mystery master. I'm never disappointed by her mysteries. I rarely ever guess who the murderer is. She leads you on twists, turns and subterfuge to keep you guessing and reading. Once I finish one of her books I am always eagerly awaiting the next.
If you love cozy mysteries with paranormal elements, I highly recommend Juliet Blackwell.
