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?

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

    Probably not, since the accents were so ridiculously distracting. I did enjoy the story though.

    "Great Book :)"

    Hilarious as usual! Molly Harper is an automatic download. She always leaves you with a smile. I liked how the new plot connected to the grandfather and tied everything together in the Hollow. So nice visiting with old friends from Half Moon Hollow.

    I enjoyed the crazy accents, because really how would a Boston/Irish accent sound?

    If you keep writing them, I'll keep downloading! :)

    "inconsistent accent annoying"
    What didn’t you like about Amanda Ronconi’s performance?

    I am having trouble listening to this- I usually LOVE this narrator but the in and out accent is sooo annoying!

    Story
    "I think the Boston/Irish accent killed it"

    I have loved all the Molly Harper books, and have listened to every one of them just because of Amanda Ronconi's narration. She does such a good job with delivery of the humorous punch lines, it sometimes makes the book worth listening to. Miss Harper's books are a funny type of light mystery, that's easy to figure out, and I don't know if I would enjoy them, if I were to read them. This story really fell short for me, and after much thought, I came to the conclusion it was the voice. It was all wrong for delivering subtle jokes tucked away in the script. Kinda like what makes a good comedian, some people can tell a joke one way, and it's hilarious, the next person can kill the same punch line.I think that's what happened in this instance,cause I didn't have the usual laugh out loud moments that I have grown so accustomed to with Molly Harper. However, that is just my opinion and with the high ratings, I see that I'm in a minority here. So if you love Molly Harper's books, you may feel differently.

    Story
    "Amanda Ronconi"
    What made the experience of listening to A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses the most enjoyable?

    Good book, but the accented narration missed the mark. At times she sounds like Arianna Huffington and at others like anything else. I don't mind accents and I expect Arianna's accent in an Arianna book. Ms. Ronconi is off on this one.

    "Sad to be SO disappointed with the narration..."

    First and foremost, I LOVE Molly Harper's books. I have listened to all of them in the audiobook format and until now have never been disappointed. I am very sad to say that the narration so is poor that I find myself distracted from the great writing. Until now I have really enjoyed Amanda Ronconi's work. However, the Boston accent is so bad in this recording that at first I actually thought it was a joke and part of the storyline. The narrator will read an entire passage with no accent whatsoever and then throw in one or two of the well-known cliche Boston accent words (pahk the caah, etc.). When she does this I'm a instantly snapped out of the story and focused on the strange accent.

    While I agree a series should stick with the same narrator whenever possible, if the author felt the Boston accent was too important to the story to lose (I haven't finished the book, but at this point that doesn't seem to be the case) a different narrator would have been a better choice.

    I always anxiously await Molly Harper's work and will continue to do so. I hope any future new accents are fully vetted before recording begins. Harper's books deserve the best possible narration and unfortunately this one misses the mark.

    "Amanda Ronconi, as good as you are? Seriously bad."

    I adore Molly Harper, I love Amanda Ronconi. With that said I think the good thing these two had going.....is OVER. Usually, Mollys books make me laugh out loud and Amanda seals the deal. I didn't love the characters, the story was weak and the narrator sucked. It was difficult to finish it as Amanda ruined it with the terrible, terrible accent. I'm shaking my head over this one. I didn't laugh once. Not even a giggle. I'm seriously depressed over this failure as I looked so forward to this book.

    "Doesn't sound like Ronconi"

    Amanda Ronconi makes the Molly Harper books, but this doesn't sound like her. I don't know if they did some auto-tuning or what but it's just not the same. I still love all of Molly Harper's books, but missed the Ronconi effect on the audio.

    "Molly Harper has done it again"

    I have every Molly Harper book and am never disappointed. Another easy listen with just the right amount of humor and romance. One of the few authors that makes me laugh out loud.

    I love Amanda Ronconi and the fact that she narrates all of Molly's books.

    "This was fabulous, super cute!!!"
    Where does A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a great story. a complete winner...I loved it!!


    What other book might you compare A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses to and why?

    It is comparable to the Jane Jameson series...lots of same characters, and it is in the hollow...it was so good!!!


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    I thought she did a great job, ignore the people saying she was not good, because she was great...the whole book was flawlessly narrated....great characters, great voices, and lots of humor!


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

    I practically did!!


    Any additional comments?

    I hope there is more about Nola and Jed...they are a fabulous couple...and I am looking forward to a new installment! Highly recommend!!!!
