Nola Leary would have been content to stay in Kilcairy, Ireland, healing villagers at her family’s clinic with a mix of magic and modern medicine. But a series of ill-timed omens and a deathbed promise to her grandmother have sent her on a quest to Half-Moon Hollow, Kentucky, to secure her family’s magical potency for the next generation. Her supernatural task? To unearth four artifacts hidden by her grandfather before a rival magical family beats her to it. Complication One: The artifacts are lost somewhere in vampire Jane Jameson’s occult bookshop. Complication Two: Her new neighbor, Jed Trudeau, keeps turning up half-naked at the strangest times....

Would you try another book from Molly Harper and/or Amanda Ronconi?

Yes, I am willing to try another book from the author with this narrator - I am usually a big fan of both Molly Harper's books and Amanda Ronconi's narration but this narration fell short for me.

Would you be willing to try another book from Molly Harper? Why or why not?

Yes - she's always a funny writer and balances the romance novel aspect with lots of magic/humor which is why I like her!

Did Amanda Ronconi do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Good differentiation - bad choice for accents. The main character sounded like an awful version of South Boston mixed with Long Island/the Nanny as opposed to an Irish lilt. Her Southern accents and standard reading voice were great but her accent for the main character while definitely distinctive was really unpleasant and off-target,
