Synopsis (Goodreads):
Business can be hell...

Life is good at Starfort Collectibles until the owners, Caitlin and Trevor Fulmer, acquire a beautiful statuette with a murky past. Shortly thereafter, mysterious hauntings wreak havoc on the couple when a ghost in the attic threatens retribution. Caitlin presses her coven for help before the ghost succeeds in meting out deadly punishment—on Trevor.
Thoughts on Drawing Down the Shades: It's been a while since I read book 1 in this series and I will admit I had a bit of a tough time keeping all the different bit characters straight. Caitlin and Trevor, I was a-okay with, but Caitlin's witchy friends and the various people who popped in and out of the narrative sometimes took me a minute to place.

Nobody fret, I figured things out. *raises fist in victory*

Much like book 1, Caitlin is scrambling to figure out who or what is causing the odd disturbances and upheavals in her life. From the physical (items moving and an attic with attitude) to the emotional (her fear for Trevor's well-being), at least she has the help and support of her coven.

There were times when I wanted to give Caitlin a good shake. I do understand her not wanting to worry her husband, but when something potentially deadly could be hanging out in your attic I think sharing is a good idea. The better to prepare for it if did try to attack, right?

The overall story was interesting and I'm curious how the...erm, bad thing managed what they managed. (That's intentionally vague for all you spoiler-phobes out there. You're welcome.) Love love LOVE the addition of the new pet (total softie here. I totally own that.) and I'm curious how he'll help out in the future.
