TARNISHED AND TORN

TARNISHED AND TORN

A Witchcraft Mystery

BY JULIET BLACKWELL

**ABOUT THE BOOK:**

**As the owner of a popular vintage clothing store, Lily Ivory can enjoy a day of antique jewelry shopping and still call it work. But as one of San Francisco’s resident witches, searching for hidden treasures can sometimes lead to dangerous discoveries...**

**When Lily arrives at an antique jewelry fair, her bargain sensors go off left and right—but she also picks up a faint vibration of magic. Could the hard-bargaining merchant Griselda be a fellow practitioner? It certainly seems that way when a sudden fire sends panic through the crowd, and Lily discovers Griselda murdered in a way that nods to an old-fashioned witch hunt...**

**A crime that hits close to home turns into an unwelcome flash from the past when the police bring in their lead suspect—Lily’s estranged father. Though he may not deserve her help, Lily is determined to clear her father’s name and solve a murder that’s anything but crystal clear.**

**AN EXCERPT FROM**

*TARNISHED AND TORN:*

**In general when someone suggests you leave a burning building, you should follow orders. But something told me this wasn't your average fire at your typical Gem Faire.**

**And I, being neither average nor typical, felt compelled to find out what was going on. Instead of exiting, Oscar and I burst through a service door that led into the heart of the massive, hangar-like structure.**

**Pandemonium.**

**Small fires were burning in several corners, unaffected by the overhead sprinklers soaking everything below. And yet the flames did not appear to be spreading. One display table was lit as though a puddle of gasoline were burning right in the center of the tablecloth. Another fire was so hot that the solid gold pieces in a locked display case had melted, the small puddles of molten metal flowing into one another. Still, the flammable tablecloths and posters were not catching afire.**

**The loudspeaker squawked: "Do not be alarmed. Please allow the officials through. Move in an orderly fashion toward the exits. Do not panic."**

**Frantic merchants were gathering their valuable wares as frightened security personnel tried to convince them to abandon their items, insisting everyone leave the building immediately.****TO FINISH READING THIS EXCERPT, VISIT THE AUTHOR'S WEBSITE HERE.**

Fascinating! In her bio, I learned Juliet grew up not far from where Steve Jobs worked in his garage, on computers!

Gem faires are such fun. I used to go every year. I love the cover of the book. I can picture the people trying to pick up their wares before leaving the show. They are quite valuable. The storyline sounds interesting.
