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...

This story just plodded along without very much happening until the very end. The timing and pacing of the story was not good and I struggled to even finish the book.
The performance was good considering the narrator didn't have much to work with.
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.
I listened to book 1 in this series and liked her performance just as much as this time. Great narrator.
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.
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.
Yes, I will. Hopefully there will be no more spoiled adults acting more immature than the 4 year old in the book.
Yes, I enjoy her work and found her delivery to be the saving grace of this book.
Other characters were introduced or developed a bit more.
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.
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
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
Moira's Irish accent - loved it
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
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.
I LOVE books. And dogs & quilting & beading & volunteering.
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!
