Bewitched and Betrothed | Juliet Blackwell
12 posts | 7 read | 10 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.

This is such a fun series! Lily comes through again. She really is such a likable character and she‘s gaining confidence.

Another owned book off my list! I forgot to make my #bookspin list for July and also the #BFC2022 challenge. I‘ve fallen off and crashed the wagon. But next month my plan is to get back at it. This year has had its challenges so I‘m going to make the best of the rest of 2022. 💜😊 📚

DieAReader Totally agree with 2022 @jb72 I think my wagon caught🔥at midnight🤦🏻‍♀️🤪 Everything is out of sorts here & not looking much better for the remainder of the year🤦🏻‍♀️🔥 7mo
jb72 @DieAReader I fully understand! I‘m determined to make the best of the rest of the year. At the top of the list is to get back to reading more regularly. I really enjoy reading or audio crafting so I want to make it a priority. Also I‘m here to help you if you need anything. 😉 7mo
wanderinglynn It has been a challenging year! And it‘s always good to reset once in while. 🙌🏻 7mo

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! Sometimes you just have to take a deep breath and reorganize priorities a little!! 7mo
bthegood A reset is always good - and the beauty is that there is no limit on the number of resets you can use in a day/week/month/year - 🤗 6mo
jb72 @bthegood It‘s a good thing our resets are unlimited. Every day is a new day to begin again! 6mo
bthegood @jb72 👍 6mo

Two of my favorites are Mystique from X-men and Oscar from A Witchcraft Mystery.

Supernatural is a great show with a lot of creatures that morph into other things.

Bookworm54 Mystique! Of course! I forgot about X men haha 3y
ElizaMarie I haven't really seen supernatural. Just one episode here and there... I probably should watch it. I think its something totally up my alley! 3y

This feels like it could be the end of the series. Big things that have been coming have been resolved, and it had a very “fight for the end of the world” kind of feeling. If there‘s more though, I‘ll read them. This has been a really fun series to read this month! 🎃🎃🎃🎃

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.

#bookfitnesschallenge #bfcr2 checkin week 5

Megabooks Awesome job, especially on the junk!! 4y
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! 4y
Emilymdxn Impressed as always! Keep it up! 4y
rockpools 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 🤔 4y

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! 4y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag Omg!! 😍 I‘m also in a country without raccoons! 4y
KathyWheeler I had no idea this book was out! 4y

Crazeedi Oh no! They will destroy stuff!! 4y
Soubhiville Cuties! 4y
wanderinglynn @KathyWheeler I didn‘t either until I was looking on Amazon on Prime Day. 4y
wanderinglynn @Megabooks that they are. 4y
wanderinglynn @Crazeedi yes they will. But they weren‘t on my deck—they were hanging out on the deck above me. 4y
Jojo990 Thank you for turning me on to a new series!! I‘m going to check them out 4y
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. 4y
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. 4y
KathyWheeler @wanderinglynn I‘m listening to it now. 😊 I like the home renovation series as well. 4y
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. 4y
wanderinglynn @KathyWheeler 👍🏻👍🏻 4y
wanderinglynn @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick That would be traumatizing. They‘re cute, but annoying. 4y

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! 4y
jb72 Ooooo that‘s book 10 right? I think I‘m on book 5. I love that witchy series. 4y
wanderinglynn @cobwebmoth great minds! 😉 4y
wanderinglynn @jb72 Yep! It‘s book 10! I love this series too. 4y

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! 4y
wanderinglynn Thanks @Crazeedi ☺️ 4y
TheAromaofBooks haha I had a very similar look in 1989!! However, my glasses were pink. :-D 4y
wanderinglynn @TheAromaofBooks 🙌🏻 Ah, the fun of the 80s. 😂 4y

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! 4y
