    Story
    "PG-rated Nora Roberts meet Chicken Soup"

    Here's what you need to know if you are debating about whether or not to buy this book.

    1. Do you like the *friendships* in Nora Roberts' books?
    2. Do you like Chicken Soup for the Soul?
    3. Do you prefer your audiobooks to have nothing more than a deep kiss here, a coy look there, and nary a swear word in sight?
    4. Do you live in Northern California, Oregon, or Washington, or find yourself drawn to people that are from these states?

    If you answered yes to all of these, you will probably adore this book. If you answered yes to 1-3, you will probably really enjoy this book.

    Still unsure? Let me give you some more details.

    The narrator does not have an incredible range of voices, but she does have the perfect cadence. Her voice hypnotized me without putting me to sleep, and her slow, careful reading caused me to slowly and carefully soak up the world within this audiobook.

    The plot is pleasant and without suspense. A woman is told she is a witch after stumbling across an internet spell, and she meets a witch family and starts training with them. Most of the characters in this story are family or lifelong friends, so there is an undertone of affection in almost all of the interactions. The second book introduces a few characters that do not always get along or like everyone, so if you need a little conflict I would recommend that you skip to that one. If you're looking for a cheerful, relaxing listen that will give you a dose of positivity, you've found it.

    "What a delight!"

    Such a wondrous, positive, smiley kind of story. I am looking forward to the rest of them. Worth the credit. It is interesting and lighthearted.

    Story
    "Happy Witches"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend to a friend! The story is fun and touching without being sappy and I love the idea of technological witches.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Modern Witch?

    When Nat walked in while Jamie was helping Lauren and had a precog blowing Laurens channels wide open. He was so stunned he completely forgot what he was doing and knew she was his future.


    What about Martha Harmon Pardee’s performance did you like?

    I loved the fact that she had a voice for each character that was so distinct that you knew who was speaking even if they didn't say who it was. She did a magnificent job of bringing the characters to life!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me smile, laugh, and tear up. I fell in love with it.

    Story
    "Not completely horrible but..."

    This book is not the typical light paranormal fantasy I was expecting. I'm about an hour and half in and I can't wait for it to be over. I'm going to increase the narration speed in order to finish it more quickly. I will finish it only because I got this book in a 3 for 2 sale back in the summer and I don't think I can return it for a credit. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the other 2 books I got during that sale so it isn't a total loss.

    If you are looking for something light and fun I suggest anything by Molly Harper.

    Story
    "Family of witches"

    This book is more about family and friends than romance. It's about a woman named Lauren who is shopping for food on-line one day and gets pulled into a witch chat room. That's only supposed to happen if you're an actual witch so they decide to send a male witch to discover whether Lauren is a witch or not. Of course, it turns out she is so she needs to learn how to be one. This was a nice easy listen and the story moved along at a nice pace.

    Story
    "An Okay Book for a Boring Day."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not, it started out good but as it continued went no where. If I was to recommend it it would be for some old church lady looking for and uplifting story, of course she wouldn't read it because its about magic.


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

    I enjoyed the magic of the world and the rules created for the magic. The characters were not so memorable and lack very much true depth. Moments such as how the grandmother was an amazing artist felt cliche in the context of the book itself.


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

    Really the narrator was one of the best parts of this book as I enjoyed her voice and how she didn't need to greatly alter it to create characters.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    NO.

    "Wonderful, Feel Good, Funny, Story!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! I was looking for a fun, enjoyable story. I laughed out loud and... cried in the happy parts... It is just a story that is nice to listen to.


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

    Love the reader. Martha does a wonderful job changing her voice so that you know who the character is without having to be told. Was very happy that she narrates all the stories.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh yes! I mostly listen to my ipod in the car. For the first time in a long time, I find myself sitting in the car after I've reached my destination so I can listen a little longer.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm on the second book now, and I hope Debora continues to write more stories about these wonderful, loving "people".

    Story
    "Inspired me to immediately buy the entire series"

    This book was part of the selection for one of Audible's promotions, and I picked it up more or less on a whim. I was very pleasantly surprised - this book is a lovely, character driven story where things are wrapped up cleanly but without being _overly_ predictable.

    There were few surprises, it was more about the emotional journey of the characters. And while there were times it seemed less about the (nominal) main character and more about introducing us to Witch Central and the merry band within, it is still Lauren's journey.

    The next books are even better, although I don't know if I can recommend reading _any_ of the series in public as they _all_ made me weepy at some point. It didn't feel manipulative though, just like you were attached to these people and a response was genuinely evoked. I did immediately buy the entire rest of the series (2-7) in ebook on the basis of listening to this one, and I have not been disappointed.

    "A heart warming story!"

    Well, the last few books I listened to were pretty much slash and pow books. I was ready to hear a nice story. These books are all about home, love, acceptance and making the world a better place through magic and family. While the story is predictable and not the classic romance novel, it is great at taking you to a place where very lovable characters struggle to find their way, and in the end do, with the help of great friends and family.

    Hey, they are a bit predictable and corny, but Ms. Geary tells a sweet story with plenty of excitement, and parts of it are really a fun ride! And it did help me recover from the Kaboom books I mentioned above! Cheers!

    "A Joyous Series"

    This book, as a part of a much larger series, is filled with deep characters that are so real they could step off the page. However, my favorite thing with each book in this series is the deep feeling of joy and contentment I feel during and after I read them. Thank you Debora Geary. I own all the books you have written thus far and will continue to buy them all both in Kindle and Audible formats.
