Publisher's Summary

Forty. Single. And about to become Accidentally Magical....

Up until 24 hours ago, my life was the definition of basic. And that’s okay, because I was happy with my simple existence; co-running the Lustrous Bean, a bookstore café near the beach with my best friend, Willa.

But when a small mix-up has my entire world going topsy-turvy, I’m realizing that nothing in life is ever as simple as it seems.

Now, it turns out that my best friend is a Fae princess on the run, my cat is a British tyrant, and my dog has the vocabulary of a three-year-old. Yes, vocabulary.

Add in a pair of Fae henchmen and a wickedly handsome coven leader, and I’m starting to think I drank a bad bottle of wine.

So how does a regular girl become the center of a magical world? You’re about to find out....

Gone with the Witches is the first book in the brand new series: Accidentally Magical at Midlife? from author Melinda Chase.

Melinda loves writing tales that prove life - romance - and "happily-ever-afters" - do exist beyond your 20s! Her books feature snarky, hilarious heroines and their wild adventures of mid-life self-discovery filled with mystery and romance. It’s sure to please fans of traditional paranormal romance and cozy paranormal mysteries!

entertaining

What a wild bizarre start to this series. I have so many questions! The pets are hilarious. I have no idea where this is going, but I'm going along for the ride. Looking forward to more. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job bringing it to life.

Witches and Fae oh my

I loved this story! I received an audible copy in exchange for my honest review. I found myself wanting to stay up late to finish it - I didn't want to get out of my car.
These characters, wow. I love Cally and Willa and their friendship. it was really tested in this book.
I can't wait to see if anything happens between Shafe and Cally - fingers are crossed, lol.
There was a lot of action and adventure throughout the story.
The plot thickened during one scene, where a new character was introduced. he truly gave me the creeps!
I can't wait to read (and/or listen to) book 2! The narrator did a phenomenal job! I love the voice and life she gave to the animals!

Paranormal Cooperation

I enjoyed this book. This is my first time reading this author. I need to find out what happens in the next book.
Krys Jane did a great job of voicing various accents.

Not bad but glad it was free

Characters age would be more believable as late twenties or early thirties at most, but overall, enjoyable.
The narrator didn't have much range as far as different voices, but she announced each character when she spoke in their voice, so transitions were not confusing. You might think that announcement would be annoying, but it wasn't at all once I realized, and paid more attention to the shifts between characters.
This was a very 'light read'. It was only @ 3 hours by as an audio book. If the next book is longer, I will assume there will be more 'meat-on-the-bone', and buy it, although that's not a guarantee it will be something wonderful. The book was formulaic, but the premise was good; two 40 something single women running a bookshop together who then run into magical events. I just didn't believe these two woman were in their 40's. With imagination and ignoring the references to their ages being in their 40's, I thought early 30's at best, and I continued on enjoying the story. There wasn't any swearing or unnecessary, soft porn sex, which is a plus! Overall, a light, happy read.

Meh

Callie, mistaken for Willa, was kidnapped before Willa's birthday party started. This book was ok, it doesn't make me want to continue the series. It never fully captured my attention.

Gone with the witches

If you like magic and friendship. You will enjoy this book. It is about two friends and how strong of a relationship they have with each other. It has a lot of humor in it. I can’t wait to read the next one.

Excellent story!

I love it!

Great characters, good story line, fantasy aspects, a budding romance. I can't wait to read the next one.

First time I've listened to this author and will definitely again.

The narrator does a great job bringing the characters to life with different voices, I've listened to stories from her before.

a story of discovering magic

I'm not sure why the main character purports to be 40. the book is a fairly standard teenage discovers that magic is real scenario, with her mentioning being 40 now and again, but with no solid context.

Magic and Mayhem

Gone with the Witches by Melinda Chase is the first book in the Accidentally Magical at Midlife series. The book is full of action - Calle got kidnapped twice (mistaken identity), then learns about the whole secret magical realm. The characters were interesting and I love the talking pets. But then the book just abruptly ended with a big cliffhanger. The narration by Krys Janae was outstanding. The characters came to life. Not sure if I’ll continue on with the series or just let it go.
