Allison Lopez is not your everyday Psychic Hotline operator. She's a real psychic with real abilities that seem to grow daily, thanks to her close association with an immortal friend. Now, as her abilities continue to grow, Allison meets a very strange woman who reveals a starling secret to her. Life, for Allison Lopez, is about to get even stranger... and more fantastic.
And when she gets a phone call from a distraught father seeking answers to his daughter's murder, Allison finds herself in unfamiliar territory: looking for a cold-blooded killer. It will take all of Allison's abilities, both old and new, to catch an animal who preys on the innocent. And as the case unfolds, Allison is about to discover that not all is as it seems and life still has a few tricks up its sleeve.
The Witch and the Gentleman is the first of a brand-new, supernatural series.

Super fun story, with terrific narrator. On the short side, but if you like modern witches and a mix of comedy and drama, definitely worth a listen. I'm glad to have it and hope that there's another audiobook in the series soon. And that there's more about Allison and Conn, hint hint, Mr. Rain!
Enjoyable story but I can't help seeing it too closely related to another very well known story (and movie) with the exception of the witch element. Won't say which movie so as to not spoil this read for others. Even with that comparison, I did rather enjoy this. Characters are developed well and story is engaging, plus the narrator does a good job also.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel in the Witches series. The lead character is a true psychic who also happens to be a witch. Rather than a large shallow cast, there is a small core of characters who are each unique and well fleshed-out. The lead character's narration was extremely natural and believable.
The audiobook version of this novel is terrific. The vocal talents of Ms. Townes were the perfect compliment to this tale. After listening to her spot on interpretation of each character's voice, I can't imagine anyone doing a better job than she did. This was the first audiobook that I've listen to that was narrated by Ms. Townes. I will certainly look forward to listening to as much of her work as I can get my hands on. I especially look forward to listening to further novels in this wonderful series!

It won a place among my keepers!
The story carried on wonderfully without giving the big surprise towards the end away. Don't want to spoil it for those who have not listened to it yet. Let's say, nothing is what it appears to be.
The reunion of Father and Daughter.
I read all kinds of books, but I have an obsession with paranormal and fantasy at the moment. Sorry about any spelling mistakes/typos.
Well, it takes a fair bit these days to get 5 stars out of me, but I've loved so many audio books and found so many new authors it's hard to answer this. But, when I have credits J.R. Rain is one of the top 5 authors who I search for to find new books they've written.
This book grabbed me, I've been listening to all the Samantha Moon books and loved Allison in those, this book made me love her more. There were times I laughed, and times I cried (sorry fellow bus passengers, I'm fine/sane, I promise) but the best part was the very end, loved it!
Worth a credit or just buying it, especially if you've been following the Samantha Moon books.
The story was light fun.
I wasn't in love with the narration but it was okay.
At times the story seemed a little jumpy in pacing and with the story line. A chapter would end and a new one begin without any obvious continuity.
I enjoyed listening to this book. the pace way steady and the character development was a little slow, but the story line has the potential to be amazing as we learn more about each character and the powers the main character posses.
I purchased this one on the cheap as Whispersync courtesy of BookGorilla a while back, but saw that I had forgotten to review it. I like Rain's writing style and characters, but this one, while good, did not feel like one of his best, to me. A real psychic is working a psychic hotline to pay the rent, and recently her talents have begun to expand. A father whose family tragedies have weighed heavily upon him contacts her in hope of solving a cold case of murder. Be prepared for interesting plot twists!
The narrator read too slowly and a little too earnestly in my opinion. The plot twist is really no surprise. This is the first book in the series, which could get better with some real suspense, some secondary characters, and better narration. I wouldn't recommend.
I like J.R. Rain. I have a lot of his books. I won't buy another audiobook in which Townes does the narration. The work doesn't flow, everything is said as if the sentence has an exclamation mark at the end and her reading doesn't match the character of the protagonist. This is NOT an enjoyable listen. I have the ebook and will go back to reading. Ugh.
I like All the Samantha Moon books. They're fun to read.
The lady who does Andrew and Ilona Gordon's books would have been great.
Absolutely not. I didn't finish listening. Ugh.
