Original Goodreads review posted on Oct 13, 2017.
"Wizards are born, witches are made, and they mix about as well as oil and water. So when an introverted wizard and a troublemaking witch cross paths, what could possibly go wrong? Lily Singer is a conscientious librarian who just wants to practice her wizardry and be left alone. Sebastian Blackwell is a ne'er-do-well witch for hire who enjoys getting under peoples' skin but always gets the job done in the end. When circumstance forces them to band together against a common enemy, there's no telling how the dice will fall. This meeting of opposites—and the mischief that follows—is a roller coaster of laughs and life lessons. The only question left is, what's a girl to do when she finds out her arch rival isn't so bad after all?"
—Amazon Plot Description
I prefer to read stories in chronological order. So when I first learned of the Love, Lies, and Hocus Pocus series (also known as The Lily Singer Adventures), I chose to read the prequel novella A Study in Mischief first rather than the first published installment, Beginnings. As a quick introduction to Lydia Sherrer's magical world, A Study in Mischief has me hooked on the Love, Lies, and Hocus Pocus series. I'm very eager to read the main novels in the series and follow the adventures of the wizard (not witch) Lily Singer and her friend, the witch (not wizard) Sebastian Blackwell. Lily and Sebastian's opposing personalities create a witty and hilarious relationship, and I can't wait to see where their friendship leads in subsequent novels. I give this novella 5 out of 5 stars!
Love, Lies, and Hocus Pocus: A Study In Mischief is available on Amazon.com
