I liked the story line and concept and enjoyed the humor but found it hard to like the characters. The main character is an ex cop, had been a cop for a number of years, suposedly a good one, but she has no common sense.and drinks herself into a stupor at parties she can't remember most nights.Drinking and the stupidity that comes of it seems to be a main theme.Her best friend is even worse and has no ability to keep her mouth shut in any situation. there are some very funny scenes but these girls do not learn from their mistakes. the story is good enough to keep me rlistening, but I keep wanting to yell at "Shells" to Shut up! I know this is the start of a series, but I really have to enjoy the characters to commit to a series.If you like drunken revelry and stupidity, this is your book. It keeps my attention enough to finish it,which is why it has 3 stars. but that is the best I can say..
Plenty of humor, great characters, A bit of history, and a good mystery.
My only complaint is that I wish Phyne was a little less free with her "favors."
She is a gutsy lady with a big heart and a sense of humor. The narrator is good and the stories are clever. I will read them all with gusto!
This is the start to a series. I love a good series but won't be buying this one. It barely kept my interest, but I did finish it. The reader almost puts me to sleep. The characters were OK, the only humor was the gargoyle. A book about a witch needs some humor to make it work. I geuss the one word I would use to describe this book is "Forgettable"
I won't remember it by next week.
Wow. I loved this book. A slow start but it grabs you, and I loved the village and the characters! I wanted to go live there and know these people. Add in a murder mystery with its roots in the history of this region of France, and you have one of my favorite books.
Part of that was because I was so surprised by it.
Wrong title I think!
Give it a try!
I am going out to get a french cookbook!
I love SciFi but this was just not my cup of tea! I did not like the Characters. The story was so-so.
This one put me to sleep. This is SciFi? Why did they publish This?
A waste of my time and my credit!
This is one of those series that I tell everyone about! A mixture of history and Fantasy that really works! The Villains are great and the heroes are wonderful. Full of surprises and twists!
I always read the whole series from start to finish when a new book is coming out.
Taylor Anderson knows his stuff! Check out his website!
The only reason it got two stars is that I stayed with it as long as I did. Boring, Dull, Disappointing.
The reader Does not help, Very Bland! Maybe I am spoiled with some of the wonderful readers Audible gives us, but a boring reader does not help the book when it is already weak.
When are Vampires Not Vampires? I stayed interested enough to read the whole trilogy but I cannot recommend it. Three stars means I did not waste my credit but I won't recommend it or read it again. If you are looking for vampires, these are only sort of vampire like beings. No humor. An interesting twist though!
Not laugh out loud funny but amusing all of the way. The action never stops! It makes you wish Jane was real and really sent those tapes to Nathan. I just downloaded the next book. Bravo! I think I just found a new favorite for my author list!!! Narration was excellent also!
I enjoyed this book but I missed those "laugh out load moments I always get with Evanovich's Stephanie Plumb books.
I also was not thrilled with the narration. I just am not as happy with Scot Brick as a reader the way so many people are. I think his readings all sound the same with a certain cadence and don't portray the personalities of the protagonists like Susan Erickson or Lorelei King and many other talented readers. I hope if this is a new series they get a different reader next time.
I definitely enjoyed the story and I liked the characters quite a bit. The humor was there, but subtle. I do recommend this entertaining book, but if you are looking for a Stephanie Plumb, you won't find her here.
