Adele Abbott has written another great addition to the Witch PI series. The stories are original and the characters are likable and quirky. Hannah Platts is spot on and brings the characters to life. I highly recommend this book and the entire series.
The world is fun, characters are quirky, narration is great, the romance does not make me blush, I absolutely suggest reading this series. I become more enamored with each book.
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
Short, quick, easy listening, nothing special. This is a good book for running errands around town.
I love this series!! I am really enjoying it, as well as Hannah Platts!! Her English accent is mesmerizing. It makes the story so much better. I can't wait until she narrates more in the series (I hope they are planning on it!!!
Say something about yourself!
This is a wonderfully entertaining story that is delightful to read. I enjoyed the first book so well that I download the complete series before I finished the finished the book. The books end with a cliffhanger, usually with a startling revelation or socially awkward situations.
The story is driven by Jill’s discovery that her biology family is witches. So, she has a learning curve and all the comedic situations that a beginner witch can encounter when learning magic in secret, being pursued by the diabolical nemeses of the story, and trying to work as a detective. After solving the mystery in the first book, demand for her services increases and her time becomes determined by others.
Jill has two separate lives, her paranormal life as a witch, which must be kept secret from non-paranormals. The story always has one central mystery, which Jill may or may not get paid for and other peripheral things that are happening to her inner circle. Her mysteries in her human world put her is a situation where she must work with Detective Maxwell. Their relationship begins as contentious. Winky, the one-eyed cat, is the most delightful character. While at the office there is dissension with the cat and her secretary Ms. V. The main mystery is in the human world. The little peripheral mysteries are solved with the aha epiphany. There is no profanity or sex to disrupt and a light, funny story.
Action between the magic and human world is tried together with Jill unintendedly using her magic in her human life. Yes, the conversation is snarky, and there are a few characters whose primary purpose is to whine. I read the complete series in three days and through enjoyed them.
The stories are fun and interesting...love the characters, so quirky and a bit strange. The narrator has a lovely voice and is good with each character...I'm really enjoying this series. I hope more are added to audible.
