Her supernatural task? To unearth four artifacts hidden by her grandfather before a rival magical family beats her to it.

Publisher's Summary

Nola Leary would have been content to stay in Kilcairy, Ireland, healing villagers at her family’s clinic with a mix of magic and modern medicine. But a series of ill-timed omens and a deathbed promise to her grandmother have sent her on a quest to Half-Moon Hollow, Kentucky, to secure her family’s magical potency for the next generation. Her supernatural task? To unearth four artifacts hidden by her grandfather before a rival magical family beats her to it.

Complication One: The artifacts are lost somewhere in vampire Jane Jameson’s occult bookshop. Complication Two: Her new neighbor, Jed Trudeau, keeps turning up half-naked at the strangest times, a distraction Nola doesn’t need. And teaming up with a real-life Adonis is as dangerous as it sounds, especially since Jed’s got the face of an angel and the abs of a washboard. Can Nola complete her mission before falling completely under his spell?

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses to be better than the print version?

    Very well writen the suspense keeps moving. And has a fun story line that draws you in as if you were there. Looking toward to the next book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The young witch is like most people having needs and wants. and with some trails and errors along the way you get what you want. Just like in real life.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    She brings the book to life. At times making it feel as if I were there. And is a very good reader.

    Story
    "I'm a Molly Harper junkie..."
    What did you love best about A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses?

    I love the fact that there is a whole new crop of friends in Half-Moon hollow but we aren't ditching those whom we already love! Nola is feisty and independent, which I love in my heroines, but she's also a bit vulnerable which keeps her relate-able. (Okay, that's not a word, but it accurately conveys my opinion!)

    I love Molly Harper books! I just wish we had more of them or that they were released faster. Granted, she has to have time to write them, but I really enjoy the wit, snark, and fun that can always be found in her work. I am not a fan of my housecleaning days, but I really don't mind them when I have a Molly Harper audio book to keep me company while I wash floors and dust my living room. Even folding laundry isn't nearly as tedious when I can laugh over the antics of her characters!

    Amanda Ronconi is a great narrator, but there was just something off with her rendition of Nola. The Bostonian/Irish didn't work for me. There were times when it was inconsistent and just annoying. It will grow on you, but you really have to listen for awhile before that happens. Until then - well, its just annoying. I would have preferred that she just not have an accent or adopt a regional dialect in this case. I would have enjoyed it more without the Bostonian/Irish lilt.

    "Another great Half Moon Hollow listen!"
    What made the experience of listening to A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses the most enjoyable?

    Having listened to all the Jane Jameson novels and the other two Half Moon Hollow books it was lovely to visit that world again and see how my favourites were going.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved that Dick has another relative!

    "Another Winner"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses?

    The possum scene ...


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

    Ms Ronconi's ability to do accents and so many different voices.


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

    Hey USA network, this would be a great series to compete with True Blood.


    Any additional comments?

    Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi have done it again. Ms. Ronconi did a wonderful job of bringing Ms. Harper's, cast of loveable kooky characters to life. This book is a great addition to the Half Moon Hollow stories.

    Story
    "Take a summer vacation in Half Moon Hollow"

    This listen was like returning to a favoite vacation spot where the inhabinants have become friends. Jane, Zeb, Gabriel, Dick, Andrea, Ivy, and Jane's mother and father. We even get to visit with Mr Wainright. How cool is that?

    The story was predictable but Molly writes with and Amanda delivers with such humor that we are laughing and finding ways to listen without interruption. I will admit to a few minutes of puzzlement when I first started listening because Amanda's irish accent was a trifle off putting. But within 5 minutes I had acclimated and soon thought she had a great delivery (as usual).

    Story
    "Love Molly Harper!"

    This is another installment all acted out in Half Moon Hollow, KY. Nola comes to retrieve some family heirlooms, meets Jed - yes Jed - and the HMH crew all chip in to help - sort of. The story was very creative, humorous, and the Molly Harper form of romantic. The title is a bit kitschy, but it fits. Amanda Ronconi does not do foreign accents BTW which would have made it better but does not REALLY affect the story. She seems to forget she is supposed to have an accent - sometimes there, sometimes not - and the sometimes there isn't all that.

    Molly Harper is my go to author for good, light, humorous, paranormal characters, with romance. If you like Molly Harper, you will like this. If you have not experienced Molly Harper I would recommend starting with an earlier book so the accent issue isn't quite the distraction.

    Worth the credit.

    "Disappointed!"
    What did you like best about A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses? What did you like least?

    The return of some of my favorite characters like Jane and Andrea


    What could Molly Harper have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    not sure- it was just a little boring.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Ugh! I love Amanda Ronconi- I think I have listened to every book she has narrated. But this one was terrible. The mix between bad Boston accent and even worse Irish lilt was just too much. It was distracting.


    Could you see A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no

    "Molly Harper has done it again!"
    What made the experience of listening to A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses the most enjoyable?

    I just love MH's witty and sarcastic sense of humor. This book was just as much fun as her other books.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    I was somewhat disappointed in Amanda's performance this time, only because the accent was inconsistent and well, bad. Amanda has an excellent track record with MH's books so I was really surprised to be so distracted by the accent in this one.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    MH's style always makes me laugh.

    Right on par with book one. Narration was nice but her accent became a bit annoying.
    Story was light and funny with great characters.

    Story
    "Molly Harper does it again"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The whole Halfmoon Hollow story line is great. The characters are flawed and feel real.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dick Chaney is always a great character. 500 years from now he will still be a hillbilly at heart...


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

    Hard to say. Amanda Ronconi is a wonderful narrator. I have purchased other stories just so I could hear more of her work...


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

    When is a curse not just a curse?


    Any additional comments?

    Although a great stand alone, Reading the other books from the world, (starting with Nice Girls Don't Bite) will improve your enjoyment of the book. There has been a lot of character and town development in the series.
