Publisher's Summary

Elorie Shaw, steeped in the traditions of the Nova Scotia witching community, but not a witch. The fetching spell must have goofed this time... or did it?

Travel to Fisher's Cove, Nova Scotia, where Moira is matriarch and the old ways are nurtured and passed to the next generation. Where a crotchety old witch makes small children cry and builds walls around the silent pain in his heart. And where Elorie - sea-glass artist, inn owner, and Moira's granddaughter - makes her home. The old magics are strong here. Which is all fine and good until the fetching spell pulls Elorie into Witches' Chat. Because she's not a witch. Or at least not any kind of witch the old ways recognize...

    "Nice Sweet Story"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that the witch they 'found' this time was a family member. Good heartfelt story of a sweet family and how they deal with things thrown their way. Makes me miss my big extended family that I grew up with and loved.


    Have you listened to any of Martha Harmon Pardee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I listened to book 1 in this series and liked her performance just as much as this time. Great narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    This was as good as the first book but (spoiler alert) I am getting a little tired of everyone getting pregnant all over the place. Do witches not use birth control? Does it just not work on them? Silly nitpicky thing but it bothers me when stories can't just let the couple be a couple for a while without the insta-family thing every time. Although the witchlings 'seeing' the barely conceived babies is kinda cool.

    "A light listen to pass the time"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Would get this on sale if you want to listen to it. Not a lot of depth to the story.

    Story
    "A Selfish Witch is more like it."
    What disappointed you about A Hidden Witch?

    I really enjoyed the first book & the lovely characters. Personally, I found the (adult) main character of this book stomp-your-foot-temper-tantrum selfish. She was jealous, not satisfied when she got what she wanted & manipulative. I found her whiny, entitled, & tedious. So, to me, the book fell flat.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Debora Geary? Why or why not?

    Yes, I will. Hopefully there will be no more spoiled adults acting more immature than the 4 year old in the book.


    Have you listened to any of Martha Harmon Pardee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I enjoy her work and found her delivery to be the saving grace of this book.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Other characters were introduced or developed a bit more.

    "I love all of the Witch Central Books."

    I love all of the Witch Central Books. Each one is better than the previous.

    Absolutely love all of Debora Geary's Witch Books. Just wish the series didn't have to end. I would love to see the Witchlight Trilogy come out in Audio.

    "Loved first book this one not so much"

    The first book was fun, fresh and entertaining. This one dragged on as the story become more and more unbelievable. Fun subject matter and the narrator was excellent.

    Story
    "a chicken soup for a (wannabe) witch's soul"
    What made the experience of listening to A Hidden Witch the most enjoyable?

    The warmth. Brought me back to Ms Burnett's stories of my childhood. So much inspiration for love and helping others, for sharing, for understanding


    What did you like best about this story?

    Aervyn. Our neighbours have three tiny tikes, and I adore them. Aervyn reminds me so much of one of them. And the dream of magic becoming real.. and helping the world


    What does Martha Harmon Pardee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Moira's Irish accent - loved it


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Hundreds. I have not read all the books yet - looking forward to it. But if I had to pick a single moment, it would be Aervyn forgiving Sierra in Reckless Witch. In "real" life there is too little forgiveness, and the Super Boy shows us a way to make a world a little better


    Any additional comments?

    I am going to buy a complete series for our upcoming wedding anniversary so my husband of 27 years and I can enjoy a listen and a cuddle.

    "A tedious narrator with a tedious story"

    Don't waste your time or credit on this one..it's more boring than the first and the narrator doesn't improve her diction one iota.

    The story arc is a circle that is great for pre-adolescents who are in to sequins and glitter..this isn't even young adult!

    it's going back as is the third..no more buying
    Aduibles 'two-fur deals" for me!

    "Not quite so sure about this one"
    Where does A Hidden Witch rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I rated it a 3 for story because even though I read books about witches, this one was a bit hard to 'buy into'.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I was glad the book ended when it did. More use of the hidden power would have ruined it for me.


    Which character – as performed by Martha Harmon Pardee – was your favorite?

    Moira. I feel she has created a completely unique sounding voice for her and I know exactly who is talking without having to be told by way of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the rest of the books in the series focus on the more traditional talents of witches. There are several characters that I would love to see developed and hope I have a chance of reading all about it.
