Great premise

This is a standalone story. I listened to this as I did chores around the house and town.

I liked the premise of this book, succumb to a pre-arranged marriage or support yourself.
Felicity aka Flick is a witch in a wealthy matriarchal family. Her grandmother tells her she has a marriage proposal from Merlin. Felicity isn’t ready for marriage and a child.

She gets a job solving cold cases and is required to travel back in time.

This kept me entertained and engaged throughout the book. Lots of twists and turns.

Great book

When i recd this book i knew it was a book 2, however, when started listening it felt like a i was reading book 1. What i did not know about this series was each book is by different authors and characters. Once i realized this, everything made sense. Love this book it involves witch, time travel and a cold case murder. I was gifted this book at no cost per my request in exchange for an honest review. The narration of the book was very good.

Good

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. this was a nice four+ hours. The narrator was good and brought the story to life. How do you choose between being "normal" or embracing the powers you are born with? Hard decision especially in light of what you know you must do. When the blinders are removed do you follow your instincts and do what you believe? Choices. What are your answers?

A very intriguing story

Have you ever wondered if cold cases might be solved if we were able to travel back in time? That’s what the main character does in this cozy paranormal mystery. It’s a fun well written story, that makes me want to read more from this author.
The narrator are also very good. I love the accents she does for each person, so they are easily identified when you listen to the book.
I strongly recommend that you give this book a chance.

Great story

While this is a great whimsical cozy mystery, it also touches on real social issues that are timeless. Flick goes back in time to solve a cold case. She also learns about homelessness and we see how that effects her. The story touches on gender and racial equality also. Flick meets several people of different ages and occupations. She learns about their lives and issues they are dealing with. This is very much about Flick becoming an adult, being responsible for herself, and finding out what it means to be an adult. Surprise ending and a very satisfying ending. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

A Wonderful Time Travel Adventure!

"Flic" has decided to go on her own after being told she had to consent to an arranged marriage or else. Coming from a life of immense wealth and privilege has left her very unprepared for a life of taking care of herself and her financial needs. She gets her first job and the time travel adventure begins! A great story that keeps you listening with excitement! The narrator has a wonderful voice that reflects each character in the book with perfection! I can't wait for the next adventure!

What a fun book! With a fabulous narrator!

The narrator did a fabulous job. I am still fairly new to audio books. I have listened to only a few, and those happened to be American. This is British and while that’s of course very different, it’s really clear and easy to understand. For me, as a person for whom English isn’t her first language, it WAS a little fast at first, but that’s got more to do with me learning than with the narrator. Listening to a foreign language is just way harder than reading, but I’m taking it all in. As I listened longer it got easier! The narrator has a pleasant voice, quirky enough without being over the top, and the voice enhanced the story. It was lively! The voice suited Flick. I must say, I enjoyed listening to it more than I had thought, compared to reading.

The story itself was so fun! Flick dreams of escaping all things mystical. But Gram has other plans. Felicity (Gram doesn’t like the name Flick) is to marry an important warlock and think of continuing the lineage. Yes, that means a daughter must be conceived. To avoid that scenario, and be independent, she needs a job. But that proves to be difficult, seeing as she’s got zero work experience. Then an opportunity presents itself. The Agency of Paranormal Peculiarities. And they’re sending her back to 1999 to solve a cold case. I must say, she didn’t get a whole lotta information before she’s sent back in time!

A light-hearted, fun book. I loved everything about it! I was very excited about this book and it didn’t disappoint. In fact, it exceeded my expectations! A cozy time travel mystery that was super enjoyable. Flick is not very worldly-wise to say the least, which makes for fun moments. LOL. Which doesn’t mean lots of love ;)
