This story follows a woman named Lauren whose life is turned upside when an internet program hooks her up with a group of witches. There are many touching moments and smiles to be had here.
I have all of Debora Geary's books and love them all. With almost all of the books out today, violence and near death are the norm. With these books, they are about family, fun, and solving problems without near and bloody death around every corner. The characters are like people you would know and quirky. GREAT easy reads.
I couldn't even finish this book. The narrator sounded like she was reading to children!! It was a chore just to listen for a few minutes at a time. I kept hoping it would get better since this is the type of book I usually like and actually did listen to half of it but couldn't take the condescending irritatingly "sweet" narrator.
I did my best to stay with the book but after perserving for 5 hours, I have decided to abandon it. I cannot take all the gushing, touchy, feely dialogue. Do people really talk like this in any reality? This is too sickly sweet for me.
Might be an ok book, if Ms Geary could get on with the story and stop talking about how everyone is feeling.
I enjoyed the concept of modern witches living in the real world and relating to normal daily life. The main character is a modern day woman who faces the dilemma of deciding who she really is.
This is an enjoyable book that is easy to listen to.
The story started with an contemporary on-line world of witches that sounded like it could be fun. Unfortunately, the author never really took advantage of all the opportunities to make an interesting story. I kept putting it down because it was boring. It took a while to get through the entire story. Overall, I'd give this a miss.
Unfulfilled potential for a good, fun story,
I wasn't expecting much - I like to download a few undemanding fluff-books for when I am out walking my dog. But this fails to deliver even that. The plot is less than banal, the writing is poor and repetitive, and as other reviewers have noted, the whole thing is made still worse by the extremely annoying narrator. The inappropriate, constant happy twinkle in her voice is hard to take.
wife,mother, hard worker... and lover of romance and wit
lauren goes online to buy groceries only to get sucked into an online witch chat room.
lauren says she's not a witch ... but is she and doesn't know it? nell, the witch who accidentally pulled her into the online chat room sends her brother to check lauren out. he comes and starts to mentor lauren, meets her best friend and zing, they fall in love.
lauren gets into trouble and the group fly out to Berkley california to help lauren learn how to be a modern witch.
ok... but not my normal read, there was very minimal romance, but some funny and entertaining moments, this would be a good book for my innocent teenage sister (or daughter)
The story seemed to wander pointlessly with no interesting events happening to the characters. It was all just explaining this authors version of magic.
Something more exciting.
Perhaps if the story was better.
Cut down on the explanations and have more events to help explain the world she created.
