    Jade Calhoun was never fond of her empath abilities. Now she's discovered she has another gift she'd rather not unwrap - magic. But when her mentor, Bea, becomes gravely ill and insists Jade's the only one who can help, she's forced to embrace her witchy side. It's too bad she spent a decade shunning the magical community and never learned to harness her powers. Because time's run out. A trapped spirit has revealed a clue to Jade's long-lost mother. The resident angel has gone rogue and disappeared with Jade's boyfriend, Kane.

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

    No, the premise of the book is good but I often found myself yelling at the radio because the main character started to bother me. In the book the main character, Jade, is trying to find her mother, save her loved ones and stop an all powerful demon. As she tries to do all this, I believe she looses focus on what the real problem is and spends most of her time being stubborn and not listening to anyone who is trying to help. She is so stuck in her ways that it ruins it for me. She doesn't ever listen to anyone.

    Also, it has some mystery thrown in there to help to retain the reader. As the book goes on, the reader begins to figure stuff out but Jade just doesn't see things because of her stubbornness. It was very annoying that she didn't start to figure stuff out sooner. I know part of the book was her "finding herself" and learning "who she is" but come on, how long does that take!


    If you’ve listened to books by Deanna Chase before, how does this one compare?

    I read the first one and it was okay.


    Which character – as performed by Traci Odom – was your favorite?

    Traci does a great job with all of her characters. I think Bea was my favorite. You really felt the characteristics of the character come through while she was speaking.


    Did Witches of Bourbon Street inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, write this review.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not care for the book but I did like the narration. I would read something done by Traci again.

    Safely away from the chaos of Manhattan, St. Thomas, a small college on the banks of the Hudson River, is supposed to be tranquil, bucolic, and serene. Unfortunately, English professor Alison Bergeron has found it to be anything but. Recently divorced and even more recently without a car - it was stolen - she has been hoofing it to school. One Friday evening, two homicide detectives drop by her office. The good news is that they found her beat-up Volvo; the bad news is that the body of one of her students was in the trunk.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would change the narrator. This book had a good story. However, the narrator didn't quite fit. I pictured the main character to be late-thirties college professor. When I hear the voice of the narrator, I picture a sixty something. It was really hard to get past that!!


    What three words best describe Gayle Hendrix’s performance?

    There wasn't too much character differential.


    Was Murder 101 worth the listening time?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I think that if this was read by a different narrator, it would be a great reading. As it is, I didn't pursue the next book because of the narration.
