A middle-aged romantic who grew up reading Heinlen, Louis L'Amour and Richard Hooker. Expect and honest opinion, even if it's not PC.
I hope this book is a success and Lucy March writes many more. Her characters and plot are wonderful.
With Amanda narrating, the story reminds me of Molly Harpers' wonderful tales, but that's a very good thing.
Wish I could get a mug bunny of my very own!
I have a real crazy in love relationship with books!!!
Never read the print version.
The conversation between Olivia and her conduit friends. Freaking hilarious!!!!
She is the absolute BEST narrarator I have ever heard. Love her! Every character is spot on. She is a great actress. Sooo convincing. Couldn't be more pleased with her performance.
Absolutely! I fell asleep listening to it and was mad every time i woke up and couldn't find my spot. I mean I HAD to listen to it!
Hands down my favorite purchase on audible. So worth the credit or cash. I loved every minute of it. This is my first time reading this author and narrator. Very pleased!!!! A must have!!!!
To be honest the narrator made the story, but the main character was a disappointment, she was way to naive and trusted a stranger, before she would a long time friend, until it was almost too late. The author could have made her actions a little less stupid.
Character & personality.
Yes, just to get it over with.
Although I have read many reviews comparing this book to Molly Harper, I didn't find it similar, except the narrator is the same. The story revolves around 'magicals' who each have their own unique magic ability, and can only function in either day or night. A combination of fantasy, mystery and romance, with plenty of humor and excellent narration, this book is definitely worth a credit.
No to Lucy, yes to Amanda
yes, all her Molly Harper readings, her reading was comparable and very good.
The general idea was interesting and it had potential, but when bad choices by the characters is the only thing that moves the plot forward, I find it frustrating and just plain unimaginative writing.The main characters constant self flagellation was irritating, and peoples inability to 'communicate' or keeping things from each other to save each others feelings was an aspect that I didn't like either.Will probably not revisit the author. Amanda Ronconi was great as always.
The narration on this was (like all Amanda Ronconi's work) excellent, the story... only okay. It started well, but did not live up to expectations. Like Molly Harper, but not as witty. The female lead, while somewhat likeable did not have the wit or strength of Molly Harpers leads.
Good for a light listen, but not great.
I really loved the story. A little dumb but so entertaining. It was like a satisfying gourmet breakfast instead of cold cereal, a real treat! The reader was funny and comfy with her story and it came over that way.
Tobias, I think.
100% enjoyable, it added credence and humer.
Our heroines' refusal to believe in magic.
I was disapointed with this book,I suppose I did not look into its story line.
There are few things in life better than losing yourself completely in a really exceptional story. I enjoy reading others' reviews.
As a rabid Molly Harper fan, I'd like to think I'd know her style of writing anywhere, and thus find the similarities between her and Lucy March too striking to be dismissed. Regardless, whether this author is a figment of Molly Harper's imaginings or not, this book is 'magically' delicious!
The setting of Nodaway Falls and Crazy Cousin Betty's Waffle House, with it's whimsical (and supposedly magical) blue tiled square set into the linoleum, is a perfect backdrop for this tale of a 28-yr old woman who's tired of waiting for her life to start. She has a plan, but then Davina Granville enters her life and things get complicated. She discovers that she has hidden magical gifts, such as the ability to turn inanimate objects into woodland creatures, sort of.
This story will have you laughing and tugging at your heartstrings - but mostly laughing. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and am hopeful that the author has plans to turn it into a series. I would love the chance to spend more time with these delightful characters and their continuing misadventures.
I'm hoping that this is the beginning of a series. The characters are fun and interesting, very creative plot, nice romance that was an integral part of the story. Not overdone and not slapped in as an afterthought. I'm giving it four stars because to me the pace of the story is kind of choppy and I had some trouble staying with it, but I'm not some kind of pro literary critic and it didn't detract much from a really good book. Amanda Ronconi is over the top as usual, and she is a perfect choice for the characters.
The author has a nice foundation here and I'm definitely in for the next one. Fun stuff.
