Jane Madison has a problem. Or two. Or three. She’s unhappily working as a librarian. She has a crush on her oblivious Imaginary Boyfriend. And she just learned she won’t receive a well-deserved raise; instead, she can live for free in a cottage on the library grounds. When Jane settles into her new home, she discovers a hidden chamber lined with ancient books about witchcraft. Her first spell awakens a feline familiar. Her second makes her irresistible to men. Those magical workings attract a sexy magical warder, and Jane’s life is quickly turned upside down.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would but I would also warn them about the narrator. As she speaks the end of each sentence ends with an up pitch inflection
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The way she ends each sentence with upward inflection. A little off putting, Thankfully not irritating enough to not listen to the series
Hamming it up with equal parts history and histrionics, Phillip leads an archaeological dig of the farm's original dump site - until one student stops the show by uncovering some human bones. When a full skeleton is later excavated, Kath can't help but wonder if it's somehow connected to Geneva, the ghost who haunts her shop, and whom she met at this very site. After Phillip is found dead, it's up to Kath to thread the clues together before someone else becomes history.
This book was very slow to continue with the characters. It is also getting a little annoying that a female keeps reading all the male parts as well
