Bewitched and Betrothed
Bewitched and Betrothed | Juliet Blackwell
7 posts | 5 read | 6 to read
A supernatural force on the loose in San Francisco and a family reunion keeps witch and vintage storeowner Lily Ivory on her toes as she prepares to walk down the aisle... When Lily Ivory stumbles on the uniform of a former prisoner from Alcatraz and SFPD inspector Carlos Romero's cousin is kidnapped, Lily suspects something dangerous has been unleashed on the ghost-ridden island of Alcatraz. She'll have to sleuth out the culprit--when she's not busy entertaining her visiting relatives and resolving romantic conflicts as her wedding date approaches. Could recent omens be pointing to the magical threat in her adopted city? If so, she'll have to line up her allies to change the fate of the Bay Area. Because no matter what, Lily's determined to celebrate her marriage with her friends by her side--even if it means battling a demonic foe before she can make it to the altar.

Don‘t know whether this is a cozy or not; it‘s supernatural & set in a big city but has a cozy feel to it, so I‘m counting it for #cozyinthesun challenge. I loved it. Still not on board with Lily‘s boyfriend but I guess he‘s sticking around.

Thanks to @wanderinglynn I found out about this book. Since I love this series so much, I temporarily abandoned the book I was listening to for this one.

Megabooks Awesome job, especially on the junk!! 3mo
TheEllieMo Well done; I don‘t think a day goes by where I don‘t eat one bit of junk, so I am seriously impressed when someone manages none! 3mo
Emilymdxn Impressed as always! Keep it up! 3mo
RachelO This book looks so fun! And I like your ‘no junk‘ thing - I think it might be more useful and to-the-actual-point than my attempts at sugar-free days 🤔 3mo

A nice comeback in book 10 of the Witchcraft Mystery series. Unlike book 9, which I though had too much going on, book 10 has a nicely focused plot with good action. I‘m still loving this series.

In other news, I found out why Dexter woke me up last night barking. Apparently my upstairs neighbors must have something “good” on their deck because these little bandits keep going up there.

Centique OMG raccoons! We don‘t have them in NZ and I‘ve never seen one IRL - they look cute! 3mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag Omg!! 😍 I‘m also in a country without raccoons! 3mo
KathyWheeler I had no idea this book was out! 3mo

Megabooks I love raccoons! They‘re so mischievous! 3mo
Crazeedi Oh no! They will destroy stuff!! 3mo
Soubhiville Cuties! 3mo
wanderinglynn @KathyWheeler I didn‘t either until I was looking on Amazon on Prime Day. 3mo
wanderinglynn @Megabooks that they are. 3mo
wanderinglynn @Crazeedi yes they will. But they weren‘t on my deck—they were hanging out on the deck above me. 3mo
Jojo990 Thank you for turning me on to a new series!! I‘m going to check them out 3mo
wanderinglynn @Jojo990 This is a witchy fun cozy mystery series. 👍🏻 And also check out her Home Renovations series. It‘s also good. No witches, but a construction woman who see ghosts. 3mo
Stacy_31 They‘re so cute!! Looks like they are posing. 😂😂 We see them when we go camping, and I kind of love seeing their little paw prints on the picnic table in the mornings. 3mo
KathyWheeler @wanderinglynn I‘m listening to it now. 😊 I like the home renovation series as well. 3mo
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick A racoon peeked in my bedroom window when I was 5 and I had to close my blinds at night for years! They're so cute that now I'd be trying to photograph them. 3mo
wanderinglynn @KathyWheeler 👍🏻👍🏻 3mo
wanderinglynn @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick That would be traumatizing. They‘re cute, but annoying. 3mo

My #bookhaul over the past couple of days (not including last night‘s Book Outlet order 😂).

I‘m already 1/2 through the tagged. I couldn‘t resist the special edition of TPB. And the 2 books underneath Just One Damned Thing are for my #staycationintime swap partner, the fabulous Laura (aka @cobwebmoth ). Hopefully I‘ll have everything ready to mail so it gets there before Aug. 14! 😉

cobwebmoth 😍 I received books in the mail for you today! 3mo
jb72 Ooooo that‘s book 10 right? I think I‘m on book 5. I love that witchy series. 3mo
wanderinglynn @cobwebmoth great minds! 😉 3mo
wanderinglynn @jb72 Yep! It‘s book 10! I love this series too. 3mo

1. Hm, I really didn‘t think that way when I was a kid. I even asked my mom & she said I was always too busy reading with my head in the clouds to think of such practical things. 😂
2. Lawyer, writer, reader, pet mom
3. Probably not. 😂 But she would love my dog Dexter.
4. Don‘t let fear & other people‘s expectations keep you from doing what you want.
5. ❤️❤️❤️

In case you‘re wondering, the blue glasses were sadly lost in a lake. 😂

Crazeedi Love your answers! 3mo
wanderinglynn Thanks @Crazeedi ☺️ 3mo
TheAromaofBooks haha I had a very similar look in 1989!! However, my glasses were pink. :-D 3mo
wanderinglynn @TheAromaofBooks 🙌🏻 Ah, the fun of the 80s. 😂 3mo

Mehso-so

I liked the famous Alcatraz prison as part of the story as well as the history & fantasy that was weaved surrounding the prison & current day tourist attraction. There were many emotions surrounding Lily‘s upcoming handfasting which I wasn‘t the biggest fan of. Lily had much to deal with when it came to her fiancé‘s family, her family, & her grandmother‘s coven. Also one character was introduced that made little sense to me on why she was added.

One of the things I have enjoyed about this series is how the characters have grown. Each book has brought them farther along; eg - Conrad has gone from the stoned “gutter punk“ to a guy trying to get sober. Lily has grown from a suspicious, solitary witch to someone who values friendship and love, which is a theme that appears often in this book & which she ultimately embraces in the thrilling climax where she does, indeed, save San Francisco.

PatriciaU Out in June! 5mo
