But with bad luck plaguing all its members, she begins to wonder if there's more at work than mere coincidence. And while there aren't many clues from the crime scene, Lily finds evidence of dark witchcraft and a hex on her friend's doorstep. With her friend's safety at stake, Lily is determined to use magic to find the murderer before everyone's luck runs out...


Hexes and Hemlines Reviews

  • Montzalee Wittmann

    Hexes and Hemlines (A Witchcraft Mystery #3) by Juliet Blackwell is a fun cozy, witchy mystery. I like the supernatural and it is a nice break for the heavier books to read a cozy book once in a while so this is perfect. It is a easy and fun read that kept me entertained.

    I am still liking this series, although this book has me a bit confused about where it's going to go from here.Lily Ivory is a witch. And for most of her life she's kept that under wraps, because it hasn't done her any favours to let people know about her powers, and she's been running from place to place most of her life to avoid complications.But now, Lily's decided to stay put in San Francisco, where she runs her vintage clothing shop Aunt Cora's Closet in the famous hippy Haight Ashbury area [...]

    This series is so addicting I’m speeding right through them! Juliet Blackwell has a new follower in me, so glad “she found me”. I started this series because I absolutely loved her two latest books, “The Paris Key” and “Letters from Paris”. To my delighted kiddy witchy surprise it turned out she has a series whose protagonist is a Witch, a white Witch, named Lily Ivory. Perfect reading for this time of the year don’t you think?! (Halloween is my favorite Holiday).So much to love [...]

  • Barbara

    I don't know what it is about this series, but I get a kick out of it. A cozy, supernatural, witchy mystery is just what I need when I have read too many heavy books in a row, and Juliet Blackwell's Witchcraft Mysteries fit the bill to a tee.I love San Francisco, and what better town for the shenanigans of a spunky witch, her pig/gargoyle/goblin familiar, an unwilling psychic, a questionable warlock, a sceptic police officer, as well as an unbelieving journalist. Add in a great secondhand/vintag [...]

    Exiled from her native Texas, witch and vintage clothing seller, Lily Ivory, has been slowly building a new life in San Francisco. She’s developing friendships she never had in childhood, her business is growing, and she’s dealing, more or less, with the men in her life. Lily’s talent as a witch is known to at least one police inspector, so when a murdered man is found in a room filled with bad luck charms, the inspector asks for Lily’s take on the crime scene. Since the prime suspect is [...]

    Check out my other listens at Eargasms Audiobook ReviewsBook three in the series takes us a touch further into everybody's back stories. Still many unanswered questions. This is definitely the slow reveal method.I really like Lily, she is surprisingly spunky and sweet at the same time. She has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to the fellas. Who should she end up with? I have my ideas but I hope this does not take over the series. I prefer the romance to be a side element in a cozy myster [...]

    The Good: Have I ever mentioned how much I love Juliet Blackwell's writing? Probably. But I really, really do. Lily takes on another mystery in Hexes and Hemlines, one revolving around magic and superstitions and possible satanic worship. While uncovering a killer, she still manages to run a successful business, become further confused by Aidan, deal with Max, befriend (sort of) Sailor, and learn more about both Voodoo and Romani magic. The mystery was amazing, Lily continues to be a great chara [...]

  • Casey Keen

    Hexes and Hemlines by Juliet Blackwell is a well- written and witty witchcraft series! I loved this book. The cover design is whimsical and playful, matching Juliet’s tone. The elementary murder mystery makes this good for a light, summer read. Although some of the author’s description was on the heavy side at times, I really enjoyed it! A very unique characteristic was Lily’s ability to read “vibes” off of clothing. I was never into vintage clothing, but after reading this, I feel lik [...]

  • Shelley

    I like how Maya's mom is making reproductions of vintage patterns in larger sizes. I like how there was more info about Lily's backstory in this book. I wish that the titles of the books had to do with the storylines. I kept getting confused about what color the cat was, or did Lily have two cats? I thought she had the black cat but then at the end there was a white cat? I wish she wasn't allergic to cats. Or that there was more Oscar. Can she trust him? I don't know!

  • Alyssa Wallace

    I love a good paranormal mystery and Hexes and Hemlines never had a dull moment. Juliet Blackwell created such a good story with Lily. I love love love her clothing store she owns and loves that she gets vibes from clothes that give her clues to solving murders. Hexes and Hemlines is my favorite one in the series so far and I hope they keep coming.

  • Rachel- Goodbye Borders

    I'm really enjoying this series. I appreciate the author has done her research. Each book gives a little more about Lily's back-story; she did not have a loving childhood. We also learn what event lead to her banishment from her town.

  • Kelley

    Hmmm this one was a little darker than the previous too. Still mostly light and cozy in tone but definitely a darker subject matter this go round.

  • Anna

    Fluffy urban-fantasy mystery. I wouldn't call it top-quality, but very entertaining when the urban-fantasy itch needs scratching!

  • gigi pryce

    Love this series. I'm listening to them on audio book and I can't get enough,

  • Emma

    Aiden is just so freaking interesting I want him to be with Lily and I want to know more about him.

  • Rosemary

    I am really enjoying this series. In this book, Lily Ivory is becoming much more comfortable with using her witchcraft. She has finally found the place she can call home without feeling like a freak. She has caught the eye of 2 sexy menwho can't stand each other.Lol . When a man with a strange past is murdered,she is asked to help find the murderer,but this won't be easy with other strong witches trying to stop her. There are parts of the story that seems to drag on a bit for me.is is not to say [...]

  • Meisha

    I love this series. In this edition we find Lily at a murder scene, having been asked by police for a little help. Of course all kinds of magical hi-jinx ensue. I enjoyed the murder mystery of this book and the added characters this book brought in. But I will say the meat of this book is finally revealing some backstory of our favorite characters, and building up their relationships for the next chapters. I really enjoyed learning things that give some insight into Lily, Sailor and Aidan. Altho [...]

  • Herschell

    This series has the elements I like: magic, somewhat real world, and located in San Francisco. But it's like the author has never been to this city, has little understanding of magic or people. I read 4 of these books in the hopes they'd get better, but the main character is a horrible person and bad friend, she shows no character development. I began to wonder if series was written by a computer. The first book is passable, but stop there and do not pursue the series, it's better left as a myst [...]

  • Jeanne Ruczhak-Eckman

    Lily Ivory has found herself in trouble again. Juliet Blackwell has me under her spell though as I devoured this book, the third in the Witchcraft Mystery Series. I was as caught up with Lily learning her trade, with Lily's relationships, and with the men in her life, as I was the actual murder! Well done, Juliet Blackwell.

  • Elizabeth D.

    I'm continuing reading this series for Hallowe'en and it's really putting me in the "spirit". Besides being a great read, the detail is very impressive and it all feels so well researched. Can't wait to read the next book.

  • aem

    still enjoying this series. Lily Ivory is some kinda witch! :-)

  • Jessie Wheeler

    I liked this one a little better, as Lily is not bowing before all these "important" folks. Whether in magic or politics, she doesn't let them get her down.

  • Liz

    A fun cozy series.

  • Lynne

    Hexes and Hemlines is a very entertaining book. Lots of witchie stuff. My main reason for enjoying it so much is that it takes place in San Francisco. A place I love.

  • Margaret

    I enjoy the lighthearted review more than the book itself, which made me uneasy on several accounts. Not recommended.

  • Amanda Carcione

    Not my favorite in the series. I had a really hard time following all of the parts of this story. I am, however, in love with these characters.
