Publisher's Summary

Bay Winchester is having a tough week.

As the local editor of Hemlock Cove's only newspaper, she just happens to be present when a body is found in an area corn maze. To make matters worse, the police believe the murder may have something to do with the occult.

This wouldn't be a problem for a normal reporter, but since Bay is descended from a well-known line of actual witches, the town is understandably on edge.

Between the suspicious townspeople, the befuddled police presence and that random hot biker guy that may or may not have something to do with the murder -- Bay has her hands full.

When you add the typical family problems, multiplying ghosts -- and one monster of a zit that she's sure came from her aunt's curse -- Bay is just struggling to make it through the week.

Of course, when the killer sets his sights on Bay, things could get a whole lot worse.

Note: These books are full of sarcasm and are a little bit snarky -- so read only if you like to laugh and you aren't easily offended. This is the first book in the Wicked Witches of the Midwest mystery series.

Horrible narrator!!! Please get a new one!!!

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator is HORRIBLE. I gave up on it initially. I went back and stuck with it despite the narrator. PLEASE find a better narrator!!!!! Her pronunciation is terrible. She can't do character voices. Her inflection is practically non existant. I could find no saving graces with this narrator.

Be Ware

What disappointed you about Any Witch Way You Can (Wicked Witches of the Midwest Book 1)?

The narrator did not read very well. She continuously mispronounced words.

If you’ve listened to books by Amanda M. Lee before, how does this one compare?

This is my first book.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She did not no how to pronounce certain words.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story line was interesting.

Any additional comments?

If the book were free, I wouldn't complain but because I had to use a credit, I am unhappy.

This Book

What did you like best about Any Witch Way You Can (Wicked Witches of the Midwest Book 1)? What did you like least?

This book wasn't exactly what I had been hoping for. Actually I am not sure how I even made it to the end. Let's face it, the book was boring. It had no substance to it. Even the characters you do not get to know well. The entire book was focused on a house full of women that had to fight and bicker constantly, with a few dead bodies thrown in for good measure. How it could even claim to be a mystery book is beyond me as well. I guessed right away who it was because there was only a handful of people it could of been.

Could you see Any Witch Way You Can (Wicked Witches of the Midwest Book 1) being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

The performance was absolutely horrible. It sounded like someone was reading a book to me and not doing a very good job of it. At one point in the book she was actually reading with her nose plugged. It sounded so awful that I burst out laughing.

Any additional comments?

Both the author and the narrator need to get new jobs.

Predictable and poorly read.

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

A different narrator, one who knows how to pronounce simple words like "vehemently." Really, has Aris never had an actual conversation? Also, an audio book should be more of a play and less of a speed read. Giving the characters personality and life makes for a much more enjoyable listen.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was monotonal, has little to no grasp of word pronunciation, and reads too fast.

Any additional comments?

I drive 1,000 miles every week for work. To make is less tedious, I listen to a lot of audio books, this has been my least favorite so far.

Funny

This book was about 3 cousins, their mothers and aunt. They are witches. This book is witty and full of mystery. I look forward to reading more in this series.

An enjoyable read/listen

I listened to this book on Audible. It was a light fun story with a simple plot line that kept you more interested in the characters. I'll probably buy the next book in the series to see if I continue to enjoy listening to this series.

I'm Sorry - couldn't finish it

I listen to a lot of books and rarely send one back - but I'm afraid this one will have to be returned. I can't comment on the story as I was unable to listen beyond 20 minutes. The problem was the narrator who sounded very young, which isn't a bad thing in itself. However, she also gabbled her words so quickly that I found it impossible to continue listening. A Shame. I won't buy anything narrated by Aris again.

Terrible narration!

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator was terrible, really rushed reading, pauses and emphasis in the wrong places. I had to give up on the story because I couldn't stand her voice. I was enjoying the story but really couldn't tolerate the narrator.

fun and sassy

I loved the dynamics. The real life drama of family in each other spaces.
The story had a few holes and the narrator read it sometimes instead of narrating. Yes I know that is what a narrator does - read the book outloud. However there is a slight difference and its hard to explain.
The narrator also did not have clear voices for all characters and sometimes missed the mark for some of the more hilarious hijinks.
However. I really liked the book and u cant wait to read more.
