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.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Listening to this book provides a poor experience, even for the cost. There were bits that were left out, parts that played multiple times or that were out of place. I am giving the Narrator the benefit of the doubt in saying that this must be one of her earlier recordings. The Narrator was flat and akward. This Narrator has recorded other books and provided a better, less stilted performance. I enjoyed her performance of the Divergent book.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Honestly, I have not yet made it to the ending. I listened to the bulk of this on a cross country car trip, but will complete the book reading, instead of listening.

Any additional comments?

When listening to a story, I hope to immersed in the characters and plot. When the recording doesn't flow or the delivery is flat, it pulls you right out of the story. It becomes difficult to really evaluate if you even like the story.
