I really liked it. Just now I looked at a review and the person thought that there was not enough angst from the killer--pooh! They rarely think that they will get caught or else they simply think that they are immune to punishment (former jail nurse). I was interested in the way that the author treated the issue of witchcraft, and found the romance angle to be a bonus. I read the audio edition and really enjoyed the performance by Valerie Gilbert.
When I discovered Audible it was like discovering love :-) I love receiving codes and in return I post reviews. Wife, and mom of two,
I finished listening to the first audio but I'm still somewhat confused from listening to the first short novella to this complete story. Narrator and author Valerie Beth Gilbert has done a great job with this story. She's not the author of this story though. I think the honors go to Jessica McBrayer. Overall, this one gets 5 🌟.
