"The characters are so real and the situations so well written that readers will have a hard time putting this book down." (RT Book Reviews)
great story love every minute of it.
can't wait to start the next book
tomorrow. the story line in each book had me guessing all through out the book
I've listened to the first two titles in this series and hope there will be many more. Two witches, cousins born months apart, live in the town of Hitching Post, Alabama with their very extended family. One has turned to healing and the other to hexing, but never death. Good plots and typical Southern belles, gents and strange relatives.
This was my first book by Heather Blake and it was really nice. An easy read that I could listen to for while needing to do other things. There were a lot of characters so at some points I got a little confused on who was where. The author though makes it easy to catch up.
I really enjoy listening to the narrator tell this story. Ms. Mercer-Meyer is able to do variety of characters but nothing is over done. The story was fun. I'm on to the next one in the series. I listen while I clean my house, run my errands, and drive my kids all over the place everyday. Audiobooks like this are my zen. 😎
Heather Blake really needs a better editor. She has good characters, good stories and good world building she just to work on the smaller details.
As I said before this is a vast improvement from the previous book.
Dillon and Carly's interaction are improved. How Dillon pursues Carly a lot more genuine.
My main problem still lies with EVERYONE telling Carly "that's a good man why did you let him go" and not saying ANYTHING about how they broke up in the first place. I am not a spoiler so I will not say what that is.
Again it is the side characters is were the humor lies and Carla and Delia's relationship is again(for me) the best part of the book.
If you liked the first book this book is an improvement.

enjoyed the mystery. I appreciate the way that Blake builds up the story and then gets to the mystery. it's a nice change from the opening murder plot.
Heather Blake is one of my favorite mystery, good witch, fun, writers.
The books are light hearted and make for a great read after a stressful day. It's easy listening with great reader voice and storyline.
Wow this book just drew me in and wouldn't let go! Love the southern narrator, the small town and the suspect the author kept me in.
