The most astonishing aspect of this book is the performance by Amanda Ronconi. How on earth did she come up with the Irish/Boston accent? Fabulous. The story was great and the characters seem much more developed than the first book. Recommend for witch lovers.
First, I love this series and I love Amanda Ronconi narration. That said, I have to admit the pseudo "Irish" brogue, which she uses for Nola, is a bit off putting at first. However, I soon forgot about it as I became more immersed in Nola's madcap adventures. Fun and laughter for all.
I also enjoyed the appearance of characters from previous stories.
I enjoyed this book and the ridiculousness of the shenanigans is just great. I love that if I am having a crappy day and need to laugh I just listen to any of Molly Harper's books.
I love all of the Half Moon Hollow Series, but this is my favorite!
Amanda Ronconi is extremely talented with all of the characters she voices in these books. I found her even more so in this one. At first I thought she was just doing a terrible Irish accent because it was clearly mixed with Bostonian, but it is revealed later on that the character was originally born in Boston, only to move to Ireland in her teens. Wow! Before hearing this, I don't think I could have imagined how that would even sound like! Bravo!!
Thank you Molly Harper for another great book! I would love to see a sequel to this, much like you've done with Iris. I think Nola has to be my favorite character so far!
Yes I would.
Nola. The poor thing, she has been dealt some serious crap in her life. But Jed is a close second. I'd have a agreed with some other reviewers on this one - I do love me some Jed.
Yes. About the same. She does a good job. I read the narration was horrible and in the beginning you wonder at Nola's voice. It does sound like an Irish accent gone bad, but then you learn that Nola was suppose to have been raised in Boston and then moved to Ireland so her voice is a combination of both. I think Amanda Ronconi got as close as possible to that.
The scenes with her Mother made me want to beat the woman.
I'm a busy mom who loves to listen to books. Mostly I listen on my way to and from work.
For some reason I had a hard time getting into this book. It definitely was not my favorite but thanks to Amanda Ronconi narrating I was able to keep going until the end. Can't expect to have a perfect book every time. It was a decent read and part of the series so I kept up with it.
I love reading Molly Harper; I have read many of her books and really enjoy her characters. I adore the Half Moon Hollow series. This was a good book. However, the narration of Nola Leary was off putting. I didn't like her Boston accent, it was jarring and reminded me of a female version of JFK. The other accents were great but Nola's was so bad that I did, at one point, reconsider this purchase but I am happy that I decided to keep listening because once I was able to get past her accent, the story itself was great. The book has the familar sharp wit, funny scenes and the other characters from the Half Moon Hollow series were shown.
