    Why, the other Modern Witch books, of course,


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The water fight... Such a simple thing could provide such joy...


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Oh yes! Without giving anything away, this book, like all the others provoked loud outbursts of guffaws, while I was driving down the street; to blinding tears.


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to the stories over and over again. I love Martha Harmon Pardee's narration. She gets better and better. I only wish the new stories could be released faster...

    Twenty months ago, Jamie and Lauren crashed a coven meeting in Chicago - a visit they barely remember. For Beth Landler, it was the moment that fractured her circle and awakened her need for an entirely different kind of magic. The kind only found in Witch Central. If she can dig up the courage to go.

    What made the experience of listening to A Different Witch the most enjoyable?

    Two things. One, the fact that Beth (the Different Witch) had Asperger syndrome and Debora really used the story and the characters to explain that very real disorder in such a wonderful way. Two, the fact that Beth was in a loving, long term relationship with another woman. Huge Kudos for both!!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I continue to love Nat. She is such a calming, loving personality in a world of frenzy and action.


    What about Martha Harmon Pardee’s performance did you like?

    As always I love Martha Harmon Pardee's reading of these stories. I go from story to story, knowing exactly who is speaking. She really brings life and personality to the characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    All of the Modern Witch books have had me laughing and crying. The most touching moments of this story were when the different people managed to connect, understand, and receive love.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible cannot put Debora Geary's books (with Martha Harmon Pardee performing them) out fast enough to suit me. I've already downloaded the next one and am excited to hear what happens next. Thank You!!!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! I absolutely love this series and characters. The witchcraft brings unlike folks together and provides the basis for a large "family" and lots of fun. At the same time, these folks experience the same sort of things 'regular' folks do, birth, falling in love, sickness, death; many times with a huge magical twist. Regardless as to what is going on, there is always a sense of belonging, togetherness, caring, and love.


    Which character – as performed by Martha Harmon Pardee – was your favorite?

    I've said it before in other reviews and again here. I love all the characters and the way Martha Harmon Pardee 'reads/speaks' them. I easily follow the shift from one character to the next. Probably one of my favorites is Aunt Moira; I love the lilt in her accent.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I don't really want to give any of the book away, but will say that there was many a moment in this story that was heart-wrenchingly sad... But... The sadness is always balanced by happiness...


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the next books to be released. I've gotten all five of Debora Geary's books and know there are more. Audible, please record the next ones and get them released!!!

    Nell Sullivan is fiery, easily distracted by cookies, and doomed to wear the peach monstrosity at her best friend's wedding. And she's a witch. Daniel Walker is a former baseball player turned bored hacker looking for a challenge. Hacking Nell's online gaming world is going to get him a lot more than he bargained for. A prophecy says they will make babies together - but when it comes to the love life of a modern witch and a hacker, prophecy might not get a vote.

    Would you listen to To Have and To Code again? Why?

    Yes! And I have many times!!! I just love these stories!! I listen to all of them over and over again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This was a great story to learn about Nell and her family. In the Modern Witch series, her family is already established. With this you really get to know "her" and Jamie and her mother.


    Which character – as performed by Martha Harmon Pardee – was your favorite?

    I love them all!


    Any additional comments?

    I continue to be mystified by folks that say they don't like Martha Pardee's reading of this series. I could not image the folks in these stories "sounding" any other way. If readers were switched, I'd be very sad. I think Martha does a Fantastic job!

    With great power comes great responsibility. So says the tradition of witching. One teenage witch missed that lesson.... As a child, Sierra Brighton traveled the world. She swam with the baby whales, danced in storm funnels, and lived in complete magical freedom. And then Momma died and Sierra ended up in foster care, an unhappy and very secret witch.

    Fetched by Nell's spell, she'll no longer need to do magic on lonely beaches - but can Sierra learn to use her power safely? Or will her reckless blood put Witch Central at risk?

    Story
    If you could sum up A Reckless Witch in three words, what would they be?

    Joyful, Sad, Healing... These stories don't just tell of the joys and struggles of being a witch, but of everyday experiences felt by all of people-kind. I simply love the community and caring that is expressed in these stories.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Reckless Witch?

    When Sierra recognizes that she is no longer alone. Without ruining the story for a new reader, the love and caring and inclusiveness that the folks at Witch Central give to Sierra is wonderful. All of these stories pull at the heart-strings...


    Have you listened to any of Martha Harmon Pardee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have and I absolutely Love Martha Harmon Pardee! I'm hoping Audible continues to bring Debora Geary's books to audible life, and sincerely hope Martha will be the performer. I so enjoy the personality her voice changes brings to the different characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are a number of them... There are moments of happiness and fun. Moments of sorrow and deep sadness. Healing... and Joy... I don't want to ruin the surprise for anyone. Just know that you will be moved...


    Any additional comments?

    I really, really do hope Audible makes the rest of Debora's books available, again with Martha as the performer. I'd order all of them in a split second. I really don't want these stories to end.

    Lauren is downtown Chicago's youngest elite realtor. She's also a witch. She must be - the fetching spell for Witches' Chat isn't supposed to make mistakes. So says the woman who coded the spell, at least. The tall, dark, and handsome guy sent to assess her is a witch too (and no, that doesn't end the way you might think). What he finds in Lauren will change lives, mess with a perfectly good career, and require lots of ice cream therapy.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! I was looking for a fun, enjoyable story. I laughed out loud and... cried in the happy parts... It is just a story that is nice to listen to.


    What does Martha Harmon Pardee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Love the reader. Martha does a wonderful job changing her voice so that you know who the character is without having to be told. Was very happy that she narrates all the stories.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh yes! I mostly listen to my ipod in the car. For the first time in a long time, I find myself sitting in the car after I've reached my destination so I can listen a little longer.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm on the second book now, and I hope Debora continues to write more stories about these wonderful, loving "people".
