Summary (via Goodreads.com): Lily Ivory is not your average witch. Her spell-casting powers tend to draw mischievous spirits while keeping normal humans at a distance. But now her vintage clothing store could give her a chance to make friends in San Francisco....
Lily hopes for a normal life when she opens Aunt Cora's Closet. With her magical knack for vintage fashion -she can sense vibrations of the past from clothing and jewelry—her store becomes a big hit.
But when a client is murdered and children start disappearing from the Bay Area, Lily may be the only one who can unravel the crime. She tries to keep her identity a secret while investigating, but it's not easy—especially under the spells of sexy "mythbuster" Max Carmichael and powerful witch Aidan Rhodes. Will Lily's witchy ways be forced out of the closet?

This is the series that introduced me to this fun little witchy sub genre of the mystery section of the book store and got me hooked! The main characters of each book are all very loveable. You'll find yourself wishing you could be part of their little circle.
The series is set in San Francisco, which is itself a great backdrop, but on top of that it's nice that's it's a large enough city that we're not constantly losing beloved characters either by having them killed off or by being caught out as a murderer! There are enough strangers for Lily to cross paths with to keep her busy with her witch crafting and sleuthing for plenty more books, and I do hope there will be more.
In each book we get to know Lily a little better. We learn more about her past and her witchy ways. You can easily enter this series with just about any book, because Juliet Blackwell is a master at engaging the reader and making sure that you have everything you need to understand what's going on.
