This was a nice little mystery with a few fairly tense moments included. It also had a nice message about accepting yourself fpr who and what you are and also about letting others into your life. The main character, Lily had had a pretty unhappy childhood despite a mother and grandmother who clearly loved her. She was far too "different" to be accepted by the "normal" children in her southwest Texas home town. She had spent the last several years of her life moving from place to place around the globe, having some interesting experiences, but never forming any relationships. She decided that it was time to make a home for herself and that San Francisco was the place in which to do it. She bought a Victorian home on the corner of Haight and Asbury and made the ground level into a vintage clothing shop she named Aunt Cora's Closet. Through a series of events, she forged friendships and found more courage than she ever believed that she had all while working to save a little girl that she really didn't even know. It was a quick, pleasant, easy read and I would happily recomment it to anyone who likes paranormal mysteries and chick lit.
