This is the second in the Vintage Magic series and the characters grow on you. I really liked the book, however I found myself getting lost in the plot late in the book and relationships of the suspects became a bit muddled for me. All in all, I found it to be an enjoyable and quick read.

I love Maddie, the clothing psychic, and her light-hearted banter with her sexy resident ghost. Her FBI on-again/off-again boyfriend Nick is away with her brother on assignment in this book and she sees a new side to Detective Werner during the investigation. Her father and Fionna have set aside a years long bitterness and now seem to be inseparable. Maddie and Eve are a pain in Werner's 'ascot' as usual and Dottie's reunion with Dante is magical.

second of a new series - 'A Veiled Deception' is the first - well-written - light reading - humourous - young woman coming into her "witch" powers - seeing visions about murders - usual love triangle - if you like Madelyn Alt you'll enjoy these
