This is a good start to a good series. The characters are well written and likeable. The plot has enough twists and turns to keep you from guessing the ending. I gave the story three stars because the author spent too much time in some areas of the book going on and on.
The two cousins, Mercy and Shirley, were so annoying yet they added lots of humor to the story. The narrator did a good job giving voices to all of the characters.
This was worth the credit and I look forward to the next book in the series.
The last few books I have bought by new to me authors have bombed. But, I finally got lucky with this one.The characters are spunky, likeable, and believable. The story was well plotted and entertaining. The only thing I didn't like about it was the narrators voice. She did an okay job with the southern accent but her voice made some of the characters whiny. But overall, this is a very interesting and solid mystery. I bought the next book before I was finished listening to this one. If I like the others I might try Mary Kay Andrew's other books. I would definitely recommend this book.
IN A WITCH'S WARDROBE is a well-written, fast-paced supernatural cozy mystery with a little romance and a little action. I wish there was a little more romance for Lilly, but, perhaps that will be in future books. Lilly is slowly realizing what she is capable of and finding her place in San Francisco. The next book seems to offer more challenges for Lily. I can't wait.
Love internet shopping, from audio books to nail polish to silk scarves. Audible & Amazon are my go to places.
I'm not much of a T.V. watcher, but listening to these books (I've now downloaded ALL of them) has driven me to the damn boob tube to get more of Longmire.
As a former Wyoming resident, I love seeing the high plains-even though they are filmed in New Mexico, not Wyoming..the feeling is the same.
I recently watched an episode of History Detectives that went thru the mapping of the southwest following the Mexican-American War and learned a lot about the history of this beautiful, if stark, land. Not that that has anything to do with the books, but it adds to the enjoyment of it. Theres a lot of un-commented on back story in the Southwest that is interesting to know.
The fantastic George Guidall does his usual wonderful job of expressing the character in the story-he can do NO wrong.
I really recommend this series to those that want tight plot lines, terse writing and a bit of romance in their mysteries. It's not Tony Hillerman, but then Hillerman isn't available on Audible-which is a real shame.
