Juliet’s not just a writer — she’s a crack researcher — and this cozy mystery really opens up the world of curandera. I learned a lot from this book.
But it’s also just plain fun. The witchy heroine’s familiar is a half-gargoyle who transforms himself into a potbellied pig.
Lily’s contact at the SFPD has brought her in to check out a curandera shop where the owner was arrested and the inventory seems to have a mind of its own. Did the curandera induce a woman to commit suicide? Or is there more going on than meets the eye?
