    The Waverleys have always been a curious family, endowed with peculiar gifts that make them outsiders even in their hometown of Bascom, North Carolina. Even their garden has a reputation, famous for its feisty apple tree that bears prophetic fruit, and its edible flowers, imbued with special powers.

    Generations of Waverleys tended this garden. Their history was in the soil. But so were their futures.

    Together again in the house they grew up in, the Waverley sisters realize they must deal with their common legacy - if they are ever to feel at home in Bascom - or with each other.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book was OK, a bit predictable, but with enough of a different premise that I kept going. I liked the narrator as well which always helps. The characters were a bit formulaic and their growth during the tale was nothing unexpected. If you like cozy little mysteries wrapped in mystical occurrences, this is right up your alley. I just kept wanting something more.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was fine. It did wrap up rather suddenly and if you've listened this far you can probably predict what happens for yourself.


    Did Garden Spells inspire you to do anything?

    This book really made me wish I had a garden again. I miss cooking with fresh herbs I've grown myself. I did love the details of the food and how the fresh ingredients were used to produce the desired effects in those who consumed them.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator is great. I'd listen to almost anything she reads.

    Would you listen to Dominion again? Why?

    I would not listen to Dominion again as I didn't care for the narrator. His voice was far too low and gravelly to be readily understood in the car where I generally listen. I do love the author and would read (not listen) to this book again.


    What three words best describe R. C. Bray’s performance?

    low, gravelly, indistinct
