Library Loot


Library Loot is a weekly event that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library.

Hosted by A Striped Armchair or
The Adventures of An Intrepet Reader




Cast Off Coven

Juliet Blackwell

The second book in the Witchcraft Mystery series

Lily Ivory is not your average witch. She runs a vintage clothing store called Aunt Cora's Closet and has the magical ability to sense vibrations of the past from clothing and jewelry. When students are spooked at the San Francisco School for the Arts, Lily is called in to search for paranormal activity. She finds a dead body - and a closet full of old clothes with some very bad vibes.



Wench

Dolen Perkins-Valdez

Tawawa House in many respects is like any other American resort before the Civil War. Situated in Ohio, this idyllic retreat is particularly nice in the summer when the Southern humidity is too much to bear. The main building, with its luxurious finishes, is loftier than the white cottages that flank it, but then again, the smaller structures are better positioned to catch any breeze that may come off the pond. And they provide more privacy, which best suits the needs of the Southern white men who vacation there every summer with their black, enslaved mistresses. It's their open secret.

Cast off Coven is actually the second in a series, I have the first here in my pile and had forgotten what order they were written.

Wench has mostly good reviews so I thought that I would give it a chance for myself.
