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?

    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.

    A middle-aged romantic who grew up reading Heinlen, Louis L'Amour and Richard Hooker. Expect and honest opinion, even if it's not PC.

    "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!

    "Love it!!! Worth every penny!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Little Night Magic to be better than the print version?

    Never read the print version.


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

    The conversation between Olivia and her conduit friends. Freaking hilarious!!!!


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is the absolute BEST narrarator I have ever heard. Love her! Every character is spot on. She is a great actress. Sooo convincing. Couldn't be more pleased with her performance.


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

    Absolutely! I fell asleep listening to it and was mad every time i woke up and couldn't find my spot. I mean I HAD to listen to it!

    "I like the narrator"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Maybe


    What did you like best about this story?

    To be honest the narrator made the story, but the main character was a disappointment, she was way to naive and trusted a stranger, before she would a long time friend, until it was almost too late. The author could have made her actions a little less stupid.


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Character & personality.


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

    Yes, just to get it over with.

    Story
    "Fun Supernatural Romance"

    Although I have read many reviews comparing this book to Molly Harper, I didn't find it similar, except the narrator is the same. The story revolves around 'magicals' who each have their own unique magic ability, and can only function in either day or night. A combination of fantasy, mystery and romance, with plenty of humor and excellent narration, this book is definitely worth a credit.

    Story
    "Plot only moves w/ Stupid Decisions by Characters"
    Would you try another book from Lucy March and/or Amanda Ronconi?

    No to Lucy, yes to Amanda


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lucy March again?

    no


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes, all her Molly Harper readings, her reading was comparable and very good.


    Any additional comments?

    The general idea was interesting and it had potential, but when bad choices by the characters is the only thing that moves the plot forward, I find it frustrating and just plain unimaginative writing.The main characters constant self flagellation was irritating, and peoples inability to 'communicate' or keeping things from each other to save each others feelings was an aspect that I didn't like either.Will probably not revisit the author. Amanda Ronconi was great as always.

    "Good, but not Awesome - Great Narration"
    Any additional comments?

    The narration on this was (like all Amanda Ronconi's work) excellent, the story... only okay. It started well, but did not live up to expectations. Like Molly Harper, but not as witty. The female lead, while somewhat likeable did not have the wit or strength of Molly Harpers leads.
    Good for a light listen, but not great.

    "A Treat."
    What did you love best about A Little Night Magic?

    I really loved the story. A little dumb but so entertaining. It was like a satisfying gourmet breakfast instead of cold cereal, a real treat! The reader was funny and comfy with her story and it came over that way.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tobias, I think.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    100% enjoyable, it added credence and humer.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Our heroines' refusal to believe in magic.
