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...

    Story
    "Is such thing possible as too much TLC?"

    When in the first book an outsider discovered that she possessed witch powers and thus was introduced along with the reader to the world of witchcraft, the second book handles about finding the unknown and dismissed (unintentionally, but still) within your own family and how to deal with it. The resentment and the fear of unknown and overcoming of both.

    What I love about in this series is the absence of good vs. evil setting. Simply put it's about setting a scene where emerges a problem or better yet a mystery. And the rest is about getting it solved one step at the time (with plenty of cookies, tomato sauce, pasta and TLC in between).

    I would not call these books too literate, more like therapy since I find myself reading them all over again first from my electric reading device and now in audio format. In the dark of winter it's the best thing along with the light treatment.

    "Good book"

    I find that this series is a very sweet good time passing series, I found I couldn't wait for the next one. Definitely out of character for my usual taste. I did like it.

    "Hidden Witch"

    I was so excited to see this book is out on audible. I can't put Debora's books down. Now my husband is enjoying them as much as I do.
    Martha does a great job of making the characters come to life.
    Great story and worth reading and listening too.

    I like Fantasy & Science Fiction but not into Zombie. Due to Health issues, listen to Audiobooks/read ebooks where I can enlarge the print

    Story
    "Wonderful & heartwarming series"

    I defy anyone to read one of Debora Geary's books and not become emotional involved.

    For those who only read books that rely on sex scene after sex scene, Neanderthal misunderstood males, someone doing something stupid in the last 1/3 -1/4 of the book to allow said Neanderthal a chance to save the day allowing for love to suddenly bloom and books with stereotype characters.

    Debora Geary's books are probably not for you . . . .

    If however you love wonderful stories with rich diverse characters and where your heart, soul and tissues get a regular workout . . . you will find your self not wanting to put her books down . . . .

    I cannot recommend this author highly enough to anyone even if the paranormal is not your normal fare . . .

    The narrator does an excellent job and one hopes she is retained for for the whole series.

    I would also like to see Debora's books other series given audible format treatment e.g. WitchLight, Novel Nibbles and Witch Central

    Story
    "Performance Detracts From A Great Series"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I'd advise skipping this one and go right to "A Reckless Witch".


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Too much time was spent on "cutie" kid stuff, and a not at all compelling main plot line.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Martha Harmon Pardee?

    Anyone else would have been better.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the series in print, but the narrator will prevent me from getting the books in audio format.

    Story
    "The Internet meets Magic!"

    This book was quite interesting, although I found it took a little longer to get into this book than it did book one of the series. Why? We move from Chicago and California to Fisher's Cove in Nova Scotia to meet an entirely new clan of witches. Once all the introductions were made, and many of our favorites from book one arrive in Nova Scotia, things got rolling along nicely.

    I identified with Elorie Shaw, the main character in this story, who is an artisan who makes jewelry from pieces of glass along the beaches of Fisher's Cove. That is about all you learn about Nova Scotia, unfortunately. The story is really people-based, and you don't learn much about the place other than the fact that witches and humans co-exist gracefully in this lovely place. This is not a criticism, just an observation.

    Ms. Geary writes a story about a new kind of witchcraft, which fits the modern day world very well. Ms. Pardee continues her stellar job of narrating all the people in this story, including a grumpy gentleman who may be hiding a heart of gold. The byplay between this man and Aervyn is absolutely delightful.

    Again, this book is recommended for all ages, young adult on up. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    "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!

    Story
    "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.

    "Enjoyable modern witch series"

    After reading the first book, I was happy to see the second book was on audible. This is a well read book, enjoyable and interesting. There is a healthy dose of romance, and the development of witchy talents online was an intruguing idea. A lot of the story is about finding family - especially when your family is chosen rather than related by blood. If you enjoy authors like Nora Roberts, give this a try. I can't wait for the next one :)
