    "Excellent book with a great "Recipe"!"

    This was a very easy listen, and one that was strangely realistic for a book about magic. The characters came across as authentic, with all their faults and appeal, and the story drew in just enough of the right elements - mystery, intrigue, romance and humour - to make for a satisfying treat! The narration was well done, and the two-recipe PDF was a lovely complement! I enjoyed that the setting was a bakery with a little bit extra.

    "ENJOYED!"
    Where does Brownies and Broomsticks rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Just right! Not too deep so I had to think real hard, not a lot of magic to make it too strange but just enough, I like a little magic... and just plain o enjoyable! A nice "cozy" mystery. Wish there were more than 3 books in this series. OH, and the narration is very good as well.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Brownies and Broomsticks?

    I'm sure there were some but read it a while ago and can't recall just now.


    Which character – as performed by Johanna Parker – was your favorite?

    All were good, no favorite


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

    I guess, if I'd had time I wouldn't have minded, it's one of the better "magic" type books I've read...


    Any additional comments?

    "Wow, cute and a good story too"

    Starts off a bit hinky with the neice quiting her job as assistant manager of a bakery in Ohio and heading to SC to do the baking in her aunt & uncle's new bakery. It improves with the appearance of a little dog who stays. And keeps going uphill from there. Its good enough that I've listened to it many times and keep picking up new details that I missed before. I hope there are more in this series.

    "Very cute book"

    Brownies and Broomsticks is a very cute book. If you need a little pick me up, then this is the book for you. I look forward to listening to the rest of the series. My only complaint is with the narrator. Normally I love Johanna Parker. However, she talked so fast, it was hard to fully enjoy the book.

    "Fast Narrator"

    Love the storyline, the Narrator however sounds like she's running a race. How fast can we read this book. I stuck it out and listened as I wanted to see if the story itself was good, and it was. I'm happy to see they have changed the Narrator in the other books.

    I like Fantasy & Science Fiction but not into Zombie. Due to Health issues, listen to Audiobooks/read ebooks where I can enlarge the print

    "Nice idea but never feed a dog chicken"

    Nice idea but never feed a dog chicken, the bones are to brittle and really, feeding any cooked bone to your dog is dangerous because cooked bones may splinter and damage the stomach and intestines. Raw bones do not normally splinter and are thus preferred
