Publisher's Summary

Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he's never made a move. Every Saturday night, she gathers with her three best friends—Peach, Millie, and Stacy—and drinks the same margaritas while listening to the same old stories. Intent on shaking things up, she puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends... but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman who shows Olivia that there is more to her life than she ever dreamed.

As Liv’s latent magical powers come to the surface, she discovers that having an interesting life is maybe not all it’s cracked up to be. The dark side of someone else’s magic is taking over good people in town, and changing them into vessels of malevolence. Unwilling to cede her home to darkness, she battles the demons of her familial past and her magical present, with those she loves at her side - and in the cross fire. Can the most important things in life—friendship, love, magic, and waffles—get her through the worst that the universe can throw at her?

    "Just not the book for me"

    I can't remember why I ordered this book in the first place... perhaps a sale? Anyway, it was a bad pick for me. I enjoy escaping into a good story but this one was so annoying and all over the place. I disliked most of the characters with the exception of Tobias, with whom we barely scratch the surface. The rules of the "magic" seemed like the author just made it up as she went and then broke her own rules. The main character was silly and I just wanted her to go away. The narration was not my style either. I had trouble sticking with this book through the end and was glad when it was over.

    Story
    "Molly Harper Fans Will Love This Book"
    Would you listen to A Little Night Magic again? Why?

    I have already gone through the book twice. The characters were likeable, the story a new and refreshing take on Magical People. I have been in a "Molly Harper" book sort of mood, having just finished her vampire series. This fit the bill perfectly. As someone else said in a review here, Lucy March is not Molly Harper, but she is close. In fact, I was so certain that she was Molly Harper, I had to check out both of their websites before I would believe it wasn't a Molly book.

    Of course Amanda Ronconi does her usual stellar job...her voice is the perfect fit for this book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Little Night Magic?

    Oh dear, there were two, both having to do with betrayal...I don't want to say anymore because I don't want to give away anything in the plot.


    Which character – as performed by Amanda Ronconi – was your favorite?

    Davina, most definitely. Ms. Ronconi is human and only has so many voices to use in her narration. Most of the voices we've heard before. That is not a complaint, it is her magic. Even though the voices are similar/same to other characters in other books, she manages to individualize each character so that they are still unique to the personality currently being read. However, Davina is a voice I haven't heard before from Ms. Ronconi and I absolutely loved it!


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

    Yes, I even stayed up way past my bedtime to finish the book the first time through.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are in the mood for a light-hearted paranormal romance, this book is for you!

    Story
    "Surprisingly Charming and Original"
    Would you listen to A Little Night Magic again? Why?

    I accidentally found this title because of the narrator, Amanda Ronconi. I had enjoyed her narration of another book, and was curious to see what else she had worked on. This title was on sale, and I thought I'd give it a try. I was charmed by the story, and even went hunting for more titles by the author. No luck yet, but I'll get her sophomore effort!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The magic system is new and original, but it doesn't take away from the story. It builds slowly with the plot, until they're so inexorably entwined that you can't resist finding out where the author is going to go with them.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    Amanda is funny and manages to convey so many different emotions in her voice that you just can't resist her. I always feel like I'm listening to a friend telling me a story.


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

    Yes, it has a bit of a slow start, but the characters are so engaging that it doesn't last for long!

    Story
    "A witch's power awakens in a small town."
    If you could sum up A Little Night Magic in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, original, heartbreaking


    What other book might you compare A Little Night Magic to and why?

    The Unseen by Alexandra Sokoloff because the book explores a little romance and a girl with newly awakened powers who struggles with a new self-identity.


    Which character – as performed by Amanda Ronconi – was your favorite?

    Divina


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    When magic overtakes a small town, one girl must control her new gifts to fight the powers of night.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book. I would love to see it develop into a series. Liv's new reality and powers promise many adventures to come as she learns to control her gifts.

    "I really liked this story!"

    I hope this book is a success and Lucy March writes many more. Her characters and plot are wonderful.
    With Amanda narrating, the story reminds me of Molly Harpers' wonderful tales, but that's a very good thing.
    Wish I could get a mug bunny of my very own!
