There's nothing Maddie loves more than fabulous vintage clothes, but the visions she gets while touching them are starting to wear her down. Even so, when a beautifully dressed girl comes to Vintage Magic in search of her past, Maddie isn't about to turn her away, especially since she bears a striking resemblance to her good friend Dolly Sweet. When Maddie touches Paisley Skye's exquisitely crafted child's cloak, the vision she receives is of the ugliest sort: a decades-old case of kidnapping and murder. To give herself more time to investigate, Maddie enlists the help of her FBI Agent boyfriend Nick and takes Paisley into her home. But when Dolly suddenly skips town, Maddie realizes that uncovering the folds of Paisley's past will reveal more than one vintage crime...

I always find the Vintage Magic series a delightful read, however this one was quite different. All along, I found myself distrustful of the too-innocent-to-be-real Paisley Skye and expected her nefarious deeds to come to light. However, she instead draws out the true culprit involved in the murders of her family. The culprit was a surprise because of his near lack of involvement throughout the story. Also, sad to say, Detective Werner's involvement (with Maddie and the mystery) is very limited in this book.

This is an incredibly ambitions plotline for Blair to have thought out. I’m used to these being rather simple little tales, so all the sudden drama and explanations at the end felt a little out of place for me. Not one of my favorites in this series.
