A Modern Witch: A Modern Witch, Book 1 | [Debora Geary]

A Modern Witch: A Modern Witch, Book 1

Lauren is downtown Chicago's youngest elite realtor. She's also a witch. She must be - the fetching spell for Witches' Chat isn't supposed to make mistakes. So says the woman who coded the spell, at least. The tall, dark, and handsome guy sent to assess her is a witch too (and no, that doesn't end the way you might think). What he finds in Lauren will change lives, mess with a perfectly good career, and require lots of ice cream therapy.

    Story
    "Couldn't Finish It"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I would not recommend this book to anyone.


    What could Debora Geary have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    There is too much repetition in this book, and some of it isn't believable, even for a fiction book. The basis of the story would be good if I didn't feel like I was being sent to school to learn all about witchcraft.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The typewriter clicking noises is completely unnecessary. The narrator did what she could with the story, I suppose.


    What character would you cut from A Modern Witch?

    The child who is a 4 year old witch genius.


    Any additional comments?

    I hesitated before buying this because of the mixed reviews. I am a big fan of books about supernatural topics, so I gave it a try. It just doesn't go anywhere and I never felt connected to any of the characters. Save your credit!

    "Pleasant Surprise"

    I usually like a more erotic story but this one was great. Entertaining story that progressed at the perfect pace so you got thoroughly engaged.

    Looking forward to more books by this author.

    "Absolutely Enjoyable Story For Young and Old!"

    Great, relatable characters brought together through majic. Its a wonderful yarn about discovery and the unlocking of gifts, and finding a new suportive community that encourages greatness!

    I hope the rest of the series is available in audible format.

    "Wonderful start to the Audible for this series!"
    If you could sum up A Modern Witch in three words, what would they be?

    Magickal, Fantastic, Entertaining


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Aerwyn - the most powerful, littlest, and lovable witch!


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

    Moira - great accent!


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

    The celebration at the end was wonderful - wish I'd been there!


    Any additional comments?

    I just finished listening to A Modern Witch, and I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed revisiting all these folks again for the first time. Listening to the book was every much as pleasurable as when I read it, and I can’t wait until the next audio book comes out! I have always been one for re-reading favorite books, and each time around I notice things that I missed in the first reading. Thank you for making this book available as an audio book, Debora!

    "Seriously?"

    I sat through this entire book thinking it had to get better. It didn't. When one of the main characters is supposedly a 4 yr old "witchling" who can't understand why adults are "nekee" but does understand how cells separate in a woman's womb and create twins what the heck did I expect. This was just a particularly lame book with not a lot to offer. The narrator seemed to be constantly amused by something that the listener just wasn't in on. Do not waste your time.

    I enjoy mysteries, wrapped with violence and sprinkled with romance.

    Story
    "EVANOVICH ROMANCE with a WITCHY TWIST ***PLOT?"
    Would you try another book from Debora Geary and/or Martha Harmon Pardee?

    I don't think so. This was a series that I was interested in trying, but I found the lack of a plot, drama or a crisis makes the story...LAZY.


    As I was following story's slow storyline I started to ask, "Hey, Is she going to hook up with the guy, is this the plot?" The love connection in the story isn't even a motivating force for the main character.


    I USE THIS BOOK TO PUT ME ASLEEP AT NIGHT!


    If you’ve listened to books by Debora Geary before, how does this one compare?

    This was my first and last.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene with the kid.


    Could you see A Modern Witch being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Goodness I hope not. It would be cancelled after the second episode.


    Any additional comments?

    EVANOVICH ROMANCES tend to be simple, slow and predictable. This is how Geary's book compares except most of Evanovich's romances are better!

    Avid reader 5 to 10 books a month. I like urban fantasy and Sci-Fi the most. I do enjoy a bio every now and then.

    "Heart Warming, Family oriented, Urban Fantasy"

    This story follows a woman named Lauren whose life is turned upside when an internet program hooks her up with a group of witches. There are many touching moments and smiles to be had here.

    Story
    "wonderful and sweet"

    I have all of Debora Geary's books and love them all. With almost all of the books out today, violence and near death are the norm. With these books, they are about family, fun, and solving problems without near and bloody death around every corner. The characters are like people you would know and quirky. GREAT easy reads.

    "Very slow and the narrator was irritating"

    I couldn't even finish this book. The narrator sounded like she was reading to children!! It was a chore just to listen for a few minutes at a time. I kept hoping it would get better since this is the type of book I usually like and actually did listen to half of it but couldn't take the condescending irritatingly "sweet" narrator.

    "Love It!!!"

    I have read the ebook a couple of times and loved it each time. When I saw that it was available on Audible I just had to get it to see if the narrator would bring the book to life just like Debora Geary did when writing it. I was not disappointed Ms Pardee puts a lot of emotion in her reading and matches the tone of the writing, Great Job!! Also have A Hidden Witch and just downloaded To Have and To Code and A Reckless Witch.
