I really enjoyed this book, I have to drive a lot because i live in the middle of no where so having a book that will entertain me is very important.
I did get more and more into it as the story continued.
Enjoyed this book, but sadly this narrator does not narrate the next book, which has put me off the series some. The new narrator is not as good, and I find her voice annoying.
I like to read stories about dogs, mysteries that are a little but humorous, stories about relationships that are not too explicate, Christian fiction and stories revolving around knitting and quilting.
Easy to listen to, the story kept me interested, narration was very good
The characters were vivid.
Nice smooth voice that is easy to listen to.
Relax and unwind
Geared towards the ladies, it is a very easy and fun listen. Not too involved, but something perfect to take you away for a bit.
It was easy going enough that it probably could have been listened to in one setting.
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.
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.
I'm sure there were some but read it a while ago and can't recall just now.
All were good, no favorite
I guess, if I'd had time I wouldn't have minded, it's one of the better "magic" type books I've read...
This is a good start. It keep me going, I like the development of the characters and hope to have a chance to get to know them better.
When Kate really believes in herself, and was able to save a life.
It wasn't a extreme reaction but it did make me laugh.
This story has lots of potential. I think it would have been better with a different narrator, and I say that as a fan of Johanna Parker's narration of the Sookie Stackhouse series. In this book, however, the narration was rushed, which made it difficult to get a sense of the story. The story had a lot of interesting elements, seemed well-researched, and pretty well-written. I do think it's worth a credit if you can get past the rapid pace of the narration.
I have two rescue dogs. One Scottish born husband. And a love of books that goes back to childhood and bookmobiles!
A fun cozy book of murder with really good people and really nasty people self in a bakery that makes me hungry just reading. I do so love baked goods
