Rec My Weekend is a new weekend feature here. A way for me to share something I’ve discovered this week, or an old favorite. And a way for YOU to help me increase my already-taller-than-me “to be read” pile. Because, really, there is NO SUCH THING AS TOO MANY BOOKS!! Feel free to share your “Rec My Weekend” recs in the comments below! And if you’re a blogger who’d like to join in… there’s a linky link tool below.

This week I’m rec’ing a new interest of mine. I’ve been seeing some really fun looking stories in the Paranormal Mystery sub-genre! I’ve not read any yet, but I’m rec’ing the first in a series by the author that brought it to my attention, recently. (Yes, I’ve seen this type of story before, but for some reason, they didn’t really appeal to me until recently.) I’m picking this book up this week, and I have high hopes for it.

Secondhand Spirits

#1 of the Witchcraft Mystery Series

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?

If you’ve read this series, author, or just others in this vein of paranormal writing, I’d love to hear your thoughts. What should I read? What are your favorites??
