Even the most skilled sorceress can’t ward off a lawsuit, and Lily is not at her enchanting best with her hands full as the temporary leader of San Francisco's magical community. So after her potbellied pig Oscar head-butts rival clothier Autumn Jennings, Lily tries to make peace without a costly personal injury case.
But any hope of a quiet resolution is shattered when Autumn turns up dead. As one of the prime suspects, Lily searches for a way to clear her name and discovers a cursed trousseau among Autumn’s recently acquired inventory. Lily must deal with a mysterious dogwalker and spend the night in a haunted house as she delves into the trunk’s treacherous past. She’s got to figure out who wanted to harm Autumn fast, before the curse claims another victim…
The last volume in this series was a bit of a disappointment when comparing it to the rest of the series. Thankfully this one brought the storyline and characters back to where they should be. We get an interesting storyline, the inclusion of the Winchester House (I'm sorry, the Rodchester House), and some great revelations. I loved the side plot of Aidan going out of town and Lily becoming the holder of the satchel! This story finally revealed a bit of what has been teased in the last couple of stories about a gathering story in San Francisco. Hopefully the next book in the series will have more revelations. Loving this one!
