Publisher's Summary

When Darcy is hired by Elodie Keaton to clean up her missing mother's disorderly home, the Wishcrafter is certainly up for the task. After all, the motto of her Aunt Ve's personal concierge service As You Wish is "No Job Impossible." But beneath the piles of old newspapers and knickknacks Darcy discovers something much more disturbing - Patrice Keaton's body.

Darcy's determined to give Elodie peace of mind by investigating her mother's disappearance and death. Patrice was last seen over a year ago after a fight with her Charmcrafter boyfriend. Was her murder a crime of passion? Or were Patrice's troubles caused by the Anicula, a wish-granting amulet? Now Darcy has to not only find a killer, she has to find the Anicula - before the power of ultimate wish fulfillment falls into the wrong hands.

    "Interesting story, narrator not so interesting."

    This story is interesting. It's the second in the series. I enjoyed the first one although the narrator's performance was quite uneven. It seemed she forgot which voice she used for which character. I was hoping she would improve becoming more familiar with the characters in the second book. Unfortunately she didn't because the same thing occurred. I would read the print books in the rest of the series but not listen to them with this narrator.

    "Great book"

    I love the story and the fun of this book as well as the narrator. She does an incredible job with all of the voices and sound effects and makes the book a laugh out loud enjoyment

    "Good continuation"

    Enjoyable continuation of the series. Dialog is a bit simplistic and the narration isn't the best, but the overall story is fine and the characters work well.

    "Interesting Read"
    Would you listen to A Witch Before Dying again? Why?

    Probably not only because I have so many books ahead to read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Darcy. She was portrayed as a sensible character, not too overbearing or careless and not whimpy.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I had a problem with the narration throughout the whole book. I couldn't get my mind off of the narrator's slight British accent that came through regularly even when she wasn't narrating the characters that were meant to have a full on British accents. It distracted me. To me there should have been a Bostonian accent for Darcy and the other local characters because of the area the story took place in. She did an excellent job of the various characters and I enjoyed the female, male, and creatures voices. I was pleased that the narrator didn't sound like a teenager as is found in many books these day which is off-putting.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, it was a good book and I enjoyed it.

    "Thumbs up."

    Intrigue, mystery and details without becoming dense and dark. This book hits a great balance. I highly recommend this book.
