    Best-selling novelist Kate Drake is one of seven sisters gifted with amazing powers of witchcraft. Returning home in time for her northern California town's annual Christmas pageant, Kate catches the spirit of the season and decides to open a bookstore in a charming but run-down historic mill. Decorated former U.S. Army Ranger Matt Granite, now a local contractor, doesn't mind working in the undeniably eerie house -- not if it means getting closer to Kate. There's something about the quiet, sensual woman that powerfully attracts him.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the story - it was interesting and kept my attention.


    What didn’t you like about Teri Clark Linden’s performance?

    Teri Clark Linden was a poor choice as a narrator. When the book started, I was under the impression that I was listening to teenage boys speaking. However, as the story progressed I realized that the Matt was in his 30s and retired from the Army. I had to start the audiobook over once I figured this out. Ms. Linden also made the heroine, Kate, always sound breathless, like she was channeling Marilyn Monroe. The narrator definitely was a detriment to the story.

    With the legends and lore of Ireland running through his blood, falconer Connor O’Dwyer is proud to call County Mayo home. It’s where his sister, Branna, lives and works, where his cousin, Iona, has found true love, and where his childhood friends form a circle that can’t be broken. A circle that is about to be stretched out of shape - by a long-awaited kiss. Meara Quinn is Branna’s best friend, a sister in all but blood. Her and Connor’s paths cross almost daily, as Connor takes tourists on hawk walks and Meara guides them on horseback across the lush countryside.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the story, but the narrator is so bad, I bought the Kindle version.


    What didn’t you like about Alan Smyth’s performance?

    It is difficult to distinguish the male and female characters by voices. They all sound pretty much the same, which is unfortunate because it makes the story hard to understand. The accents are also inconsistent. Sometimes the narrator has an american accent, sometimes irish.
