Publisher's Summary

From bestselling author, Rose Pressey, comes Forever Charmed, the first book in an all new series!

Halloween LaVeau is descended from a long line of witches. Yes, her name is Halloween. The cosmic universe is definitely playing some kind of sick joke on her. She's the ultimate witch cliche, complete with a black cat and spooky house. Thank heavens she's missing the warts and flying broom.

When Halloween inherits her great aunt's manor, she decides to put the house to good use as a bed and breakfast. Her first guest is the sinfully good-looking Nicolas Marcos, but he's not here for the continental breakfast. Halloween discovers a ratty old book in the attic. It's written in an unfamiliar language.

Halloween soon learns this is not an ordinary spellbook. The tome brings her a new talent, but her new skills come with a catch. When a rival witch comes after the book, Halloween doesn't know who to trust - the sexy vampire who says he wants to save the day, or the warlock who says he can destroy the book once and for all.

    "Cheesy"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It's a good premise for a book, and I love stories with witches (which is why I chose this book), but it is poorly written.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character is a young, horny, and rather dumb lady.


    What three words best describe Saskia Maarleveld’s performance?

    The narrator is good with voices, however she does not help to detract from the cheesiness of the writing


    Was Forever Charmed worth the listening time?

    It was not the worst book I ever read, but it was not the best either.

    "uggg"
    Would you be willing to try another one of Saskia Maarleveld’s performances?

    This book wasn't bad... but the reader, OMG! She was the worst narrator that I have ever come across! I couldn’t even finish the book via audible, I had to read it myself. Her intonation was weird and she seemed to end every sentence with over exaggeration it was very annoying and it really took away from the story. At first I thought this isn’t interesting at all, but when I stopped listening to this narrators bizarre reading of the story and read it on my own then I got in to it. I don’t usually leave reviews and I haven’t ever thought oh no this narrator totally ruined the story, but this one did and I just had to say something.

    "A fun light read"
    What made the experience of listening to Forever Charmed the most enjoyable?

    A fun light read. Wasn't the most original story line ever, but it held my interest. Will totally be getting the next in the series .

    "Great Story.. ehhhh Narration"

    Rose Pressey is always a hit for me. Fun, witty, have a horrible time putting them down!! I was intrigued to say the least about how they would come out in audiobook.

    I think it's a personal preference, but I could barely listen to Saskia Maarleveld, the heavy breathing did me in VERY quickly. I wanted to just go back and read it myself. Also from reading other books, I suppose I had a very distinct idea of what it should sound like, and I thought the narrator sounded WAY too old for the character!

    I couldn't stand Isabeau

    No


    What does Saskia Maarleveld bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoyed the narration.

    No

    "Terrible narrator"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Saskia Maarleveld should never do another book!! Worst performance I have ever heard and have multiple audio books. Made it very hard to listen to this book! The story was a little bit more for teenagers then adults but was ok even if sometimes you want to say to the main character "come on!" If Rose Pressey continues this series, I might continue it if nothing else catches my interest as long as they get a different performer.

    "Horrible narration, cute story"

    An audio book should not sound like it's being read to a 1st grader. The strict pronounciation and slowwww narration over shadowed any emotion. She ruined the story for me.

    It's too bad because the story was cute and I liked the characters. As much as I enjoyed the book, I don't know if I can stomach another reading by this narrator.

    Sorry, I wish I could have been more positive. I was looking forward to a light, witty series.
