mystery was complex, twisty, and hard to figure out just the way like them There is some misdirection as well to throw the reader off the scent of the real killer I enjoyed the information on vintage Victorian clothing and how certain colors were created green wallpaper was known to kill off people Oscar s hijinks are humorous and highly entertaining I did not want this book to end I give A Toxic Trousseau 5 out of 5 stars I loved it as you can tell A Toxic Trousseau has an enchanting and romantic ending I cannot wait for the next book in A Witchcraft Mystery series We will finally get to meet

have her birthday party, a slumber party no less, at the haunted house with Sailor and Lily as bodyguards No Lily Ivory mystery is complete without haunted clothing though In this case, it s a cursed trousseau the legend tells of a shoeshine boy, a rich guy and a fianc e, and many believe the trousseau still holds the curse There s a lot going on in this story Some threads have dealt solely with

where is Scarlet all these questions entwine Lily, along with the mysterious satchel and the job with which Aiden has tasked her Instead of a simple mystery story it sof a preparatory book, setting the stage for a huge magical showdown By the end of the book we have a much clearer view of that Nebulous Big Nasty heading their way, as well as a group of reinforcements coming to town.Lily and her friends continue to delight These characters are imbued with such spirit and vitality, it s sometimes difficult to believe they re fictional Character development has been an integral part of this series, deepening the bonds connecting the characters, both with each other and readers Lily has grown so much, yet she still manages to keep a sense of innocence, awkwardness, and charm even as she has become a powerful woman Part of that power has come from her ability to accept help and friendship from others While a part of her will always be a solitary witch, she can count on the love and friendship of others to support and encourage her, even as she supports and encourages them And while Sailor remains swoonworthy, it is Oscar who has truly captured my heart Juliet Blackwell s Witchcraft series continues to be one of my most favorite series A TOXIC TROUSSEAU is a multifaceted mystery including a local legend involving a curse, a fictional representation of the famous Winchester House, and a fascinating part of fashion history which combine to create a captivating story An excellent installment in Lily s adventures in San Francisco In this go around, not so much combating evil as a plain old fashioned who dun it Far from diminishing the tale, scaling back the paranormal just a tad gives the reader a chance to visit with all the characters who make up this series and a good look at the progress Lily s made as a character Rest assured however, the end is not in sight This is just the pause that s the set up for wild new adventures to come Readers should
