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?

    "A story for teenage girls"

    It's about friendships of girls who grew up together and how you dont always know the ins and outs of it. It's a good read for the tests of lasting friendships

    "Writing is Very Similar to Molly Harper"

    Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.

    Great story. Written in a style with is very similar to Molly Harper who I love.

    I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan, Stacia Kane, Kelly Medding and Sherrilyn Kenyon.

    Happy Reading

    Story
    "funny, entertaining, but the magic was weak!"

    The book had some funny moments but not a fully engaging book I could not put down. The magic was a bit weak and the story was solved easily at the end but I liked the characters and the storyline.

    "makes you want more time with these characters"

    I'm new to author Lucy March at the time of this review.

    This is a charming book about several friends, one of whom is ready to jet off to Europe, who share life's ups and downs in small-town America until the magic all starts and then things will never be the same again.

    Interesting plot and fabulous narration by Amanda Ronconi! I'll look forward to reading the second book and am currently hoping this author publishes more frequently in the future.

    I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything

    Story
    "Well, the narration is excellent, but..."

    I wanted to like this book, I really did. The premise sounded interesting, and it should have been amusing since it was compared to Molly Harper's style. And I so enjoy listening to Amanda Ronconi bring characters to life. These characters, however, could have stayed in imagination until they had matured sufficiently to deal with the situation at hand. First off, there were too many "main" characters. Olivia, Peach, Millie, Stacy, Tobias, Davina, that mystery guy, the owner of the diner, plus the townsfolk with names. Okay, maybe we'd all be as whiney as the heroine in this story if the events depicted had happened in real life. But it wasn't real life, was it? It's fantasy, so is it unusual for me to want to like the characters? Is it too much to ask the heroine to suck it up and turn the plot from premise into an enjoyable story? I couldn't do it. I skipped at least 1/3 of the book because I wanted to slap Olivia and tell her to get a grip. I wanted to sit Tobias down and explain the importance of open communication. I wanted to be able to differentiate between the best friends. So... If you like Molly Harper or Darynda Jones, do not use a credit for this book. I don't know under what circumstance I could, in all good conscience, recommend it. I thought about saying you could, perhaps, get it if it's free - I got it in a 3 for 2 sale. But no, nothing is truly free, because time is a commodity too, and you won't want to waste yours.

    Story
    "Grow Up, Already!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No, I probably wouldn't recommend it. The heroine (26 or 28 years old) is too immature. If it was a paperback copy, I would have skipped over many parts. She's an adult, has been to college, lost both mother and father, and is a homeowner working and paying her bills. Yet she has mooned for 3 years over a coworker who has never indicated he wanted to date her. Hello? Small town, no other boyfriend prospects, and she sticks with her waitressing job so she can yearn for the unattainable cook. Get real...


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would make the heroine less of a 'woe is my life' kind of person. Her love life sucks, so her action plan is move to Europe? That abrupt decision is absurd given her background. Does everyone disappointed in love immediately decide to sell their homestead, leave everyone they know behind, and travel thousands of miles away? She couldn't try smaller, more feasible steps first? Too immature.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    She varied the character's voices convincingly.


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

    No.

    "I only made it through four chapters..."
    What disappointed you about A Little Night Magic?

    Everything!


    What was most disappointing about Lucy March’s story?

    Granted, I didn't get very far into it. What I listened to was far-fetched and silly.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Amanda Ronconi?

    I didn't think the narration was particularly bad. I think the narrator did the best she could with the material she was reading.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    All of the above, plus irritation.
