Publisher's Summary

Bubble, Bubble…It seems shop owner and newly appointed Whispering Falls Village President June Heal has it all: Beauty, wits, bewitching powers...Sheriff Oscar Park. Life is good. Because life in Whispering Falls is magical. Cures and Trouble…But when a member of the community is found dead on the steps of A Charming Cure, June's homeopathic cure shop, and her fingerprints show up at the scenes of local robberies, she is kicked off the village council and her powers fall under scrutiny. Until it's uncovered who is wreaking havoc on the town...June's magic is suspended. Magic Stirs…With the help of a rather obnoxious genie and Mr. Prince Charming, June's Fairy-God cat, June is determined to figure out who is framing her. Time is of the essence when it becomes clear that the true villain is trying to get rid of her...permanently! And trouble doubles…Oscar Park will do anything to protect June even if that means giving up all of his magical powers…or worse, his life.

    "Whispering Falls is a Charming Place to Visit but"
    What did you like best about A Charming Wish? What did you like least?

    I adore the small magical town of Whispering Falls. It is the kind of place I'd want to live - the sort of small town any cozy mystery reader recognizes, but this place is full of magical practitioners. The thing I don't like about this series is that it just misses - it has everything to make it perfect, but I think fleshing out the characters more, and a good editor for continuity, dialog, etc. would seriously help. I do keep buying them because I love the town, the general idea, and I want to support the author.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eloise is my favorite character. I can just imagine her beautiful home and gardens. She seems to truly care for June and Oscar and that remains true throughout the series, whereas many of the other characters seem to spend most of their time looking for reasons to distrust their friends.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Sadly, this performance was not very good at all. It was a step above the way my sixth graders read aloud because Ms. Savage did differentiate between the characters by changing voices. She read so quickly I actually checked that the speed was set at 1x. It adds to the general flaws of the book itself - the ones an editor is needed to help with. I have read all of these books on my kindle, and I know that there is some punctuation, but this reader blows right past it. I was hoping that a good narrator would make this book and the town and characters come to life in an amazing way - make up for the mistakes of the author, not add to them.


    Did A Charming Wish inspire you to do anything?

    The Charming series inspires me to take care of my plants better! It makes me sad that keeping my herbs alive is so difficult for me. It also makes me want to combine my essential oils in more interesting ways.


    Any additional comments?

    I can only say that I must love this town a lot, because the author isn't developing much beyond what a good high school writer can do. There are pieces of this story missing - a character is suddenly a different place with no explanation. It is just so very close to amazing. I hope that Ms. Kappes takes some time to work with an editor to make this series something that could break out of the e-book market. Ms. Savage is able to develop the voices of the characters well, so if she now works on cadence and not rushing through what she is reading, she has the potential to become an excellent narrator.
