It ain't over til the custard creams have all gone.
Life is always hectic for P.I. (and novice witch), Jill Gooder. Murder, theft, and a missing cat, she can take in stride, but a date with detective Jack Maxwell? That's a whole different ball game.

I Love reading this series! Jill has loveable quirky family members, except her sister Kathy. Kathy is annoying but Kathy's actions lead to memorable comments from Jill, which I thoroughly enjoy. It appears she has the potential to be a really powerful witch. It should be interesting to see how her story unfolds. Definitely reading book three.
I am enjoying the escapades of Jill (I think that's the main character's name--names don't stick with me), but if I didn't know better, I'd think this audio version was abridged. At least, I hope that's not how the author wrote the book. The first time I noticed it was when Jill went to work in her cousins' bakery in Candlewood. Mention was made that there would be someone helping out with the waitressing, but then that person was never mentioned again. That scene was incomplete, and the next thing I knew, Jill was in the park with Barry, her dog, with no mention of how her first day at the bakery went. This choppiness continued throughout the book, and it was disconcerting. I do like the story line and the characters, but I hope the third book in the series won't follow this trend.
Hannah Platts brings the characters to life and she has a lot to work with in this book. She is one of the really good narrators and I would really like to hear more from her.
I am really enjoying this series so far. Adele Abbott has created something for us grown up Potterheads to enjoy (without Voldemort!) I really would like to see more of the Witch is When...series and also her Witch is Why...series. Pretty please with custard cream on top?
Someone Who Cares
As with the first book in this series, I found the story lots of fun and entertaining! It's perfect when in the mood got something light. As with my first review, I love Hannah Platts reading, just not the voices. Although, in this book, I felt most of the men's voices were a great improvement over the first book. In this book, I really only disliked the voices of her sister and her cousins. (One in particular sounds like she has marbles in her mouth.) But, as I said before, she is a joy to listen to and brings Jill's character to life. Anxiously awaiting for the next book in the series to be on Audible! I've always loved to read, but I suffer from chronic migraines and reading only makes it worse (much to my dismay). I'm really enjoying Audible because I can once again be transported in a book!
Adele Abbott written another good addition to the series. Hannah Platts does a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. Can't wait to read/hear the next adventure.
