Publisher's Summary

"One thing I've learned about running a shelter for paranormal creatures, you can't afford to let your guard down. It all started when I welcomed an enchanting new guest to my plantation. Strange things started to happen. Well, more strange than usual. I was caught off guard by some conflicting feelings, and it spurred me on to get Brad, the love of my life, committed. To moving in with me, that is. In any case, I was willing to do whatever it took: love spells, black magic, and something so naughty I'd rather not mention it here. Nothing worked out quite the way I planned, and I ended up having to go to hell and back just to save my own self! If it wasn't for Marie Laveau and the rest of my friends, I wouldn't be able to share this tale with you in my memoir."

Wanted to love it but nope

I wanted to love this because the reviews said it was so funny. The comedy struck me as off key. The story line was awkward and ridiculous even for the paranormal genre. It's my fault despite being a huge Molly Harper fan, enjoying Kristen Painter and early Dakota Cassidy I don't like Robyn Peterman, Angie Fox or Danielle Garrett. If you enjoy all these writers then perhaps you will enjoy this book.

Funny, Well Read!

If you could sum up Gertie's Paranormal Plantation: A Paranormal Romantic Comedy in three words, what would they be?

Hilarious, Well Read, Great

Which character – as performed by Hollie Jackson – was your favorite?

Gertie

Any additional comments?

This is a great book. It is a short story about the witch Gertie and her wacky adventure of running her paranormal plantation. This is a very funny story. Yes she seems naive and sometimes well stupid but its all apart of her charm. Although this can be a stand alone, you should really listen/read the entire Literal Leigh series before this and you will understand more about Gertie.

Love the Story

First I have to say Hollie Jackson is one of the best narrators ever. She truly makes the story.

Melanie James writes an interesting story. It was not quite as funny as I was expecting from the description. That is not to say it wasn’t funny. There was a little romance but since it’s the first in a series I assume that will pickup.

Overall I did like it but took off one star overall and for the story because it took most of the story to get funny and romantic. Having picked a wonderful narrator really saved it all. I’m looking forward to the next installment and hope it’s as good as the last 1/2 to last 1/3 of this book.

Laugh out loud adventure

Cute and Relateable

I loved how cute and quirky this book is. It is very relatable and happy and makes my day better for listening. it probably makes me healthy too with all the laughter that I have been enjoying thanks to this book. I highly recommend listening to it, you will fall quickly in love with the main character along with the supporting cast.

Hilarious!

I read and loved the Literal Leigh series. Think of it as like a paranormal Stephanie Plum without the bounty hunting. The narrator did a fantastic job as well!

Hilarious read

I couldn't stop listening to it. I was hooked from the first sentence on! I don't know if it was the accent of the reader, or the story, the characters, or just everything flowed just perfectly. I laughed throughout this story and can't wait to listen to the rest of the series.

A laugh out loud listen

After listening to the Literal Leigh series I was so glad to find this series. This follows Gertie , Randy and Brad at the Paranormal Plantation where they look after homeless paranormal animals . Gertie is so funny she takes things the wrong way and says things she thinks are innocent but usually after sexual intentions . It’s great that Marie and Esmeralda make appearances and hoping the rest of the gang turns up in the next 2 books.
