Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Keating Hollow, the enchanted village where love, cupcakes, and magic collide. 

There are only three things that were ever important to Noel Townsend - love, family, and magic. Two out of three aren’t bad. She’s blessed with a large close-knit family and her magic has never been stronger. But love? That ended three years ago when her husband walked out on her and her daughter, and never looked back. 

These days Noel only has room in her pieced-together heart for her six-year-old daughter. But when Drew Baker shows up on the doorstep of her inn with news of her husband, fate has other plans. And so does Drew. If he can get past her defenses, Drew is going to do everything in his power to heal the heart of a witch.

Fantastic!

Another fantastic book by Deanna Chase! From golf cart races to a high speed chase, each scene is so vivid and realistic. I loved listening to Noel and Drew's story as they worked through life to find happiness together. Each Keating Hollow book is a stand alone story, but so much better when read in order.

Excellent Performance of an Excellent Series

Book one formed a solid foundation for this series and this second book fits nicely on top, delving more deeply into characters we met in book one. Deanna's stories have a perfect flow without being "too" anything. Her style feels like "home" to me. A safe place to retreat and escape. I always know I can count on a nice little journey, and Keating Hollow doesn't disappoint.

I have a very persnickety ear when it comes to narrators. Gabra Zackman makes my "good list". Her voice is pleasant. She doesn't mispronounce words or have any odd non-intentional accents. I can differentiate between male/female, young/old. She doesn't have unnecessary pauses. She doesn't make weird mouth noises. She presents the characters well, performing their parts as opposed to merely reading.

Deanna Chase and Gabra Zackman make a lovely team.

GREAT 2ND CHANCE AT LOVE STORY WITH SOME PARANORMA

This story is a great addition to the Keating Hollow series, which can defiantly be read/heard as a standalone book. I highly recommend this book as well as the previous book in series. Why? The narrator is very good at interpreting the various characters as well as having great inflection for various personality traits and emotions. The plot is well thought out and shows the real ups and downs of a romance that started years ago and has come full circle and the little bit of drama and witch craft just adds to the story to keep you entertained.

Real Life with a little Magic

This book is a blend of real life struggles with magic. Keating Hallow is a charming community of witches. The Townsend sisters are very close and always have each others backs. There is not a lot of paranormal activity or magic so far. I am hoping to see more in the next books.

Delightful Magical Series

Small town full of witches each character with their own “magical gifts”. Positive reading. Good family dynamics. Has plenty of action, mystery and suspense, humor and romance. This is the second book in the series. Better to read in order since character development builds with each book. Very addictive. Good narration. Only negative is that I wish each audiobook in this series was a little longer.

Another wonderful book in this series

With everything going on in the world right now I needed something to make me smile. This book for sure did that. This town and these sisters are fantastic. I wish I could live there.
I loved this book. I enjoyed the story, the characters journey and their growth. I don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to give spoilers. I will say that I finished it in one afternoon and will be getting the next one immediately, that ending has me completely hooked for the next book.

My favorite by far!

I wish I was in Keating Hollow! The Townsend sisters have me hooked on their lives. Deanna Chase is a fantastic author, with the ability to immerse the reader/listener in the story. The golf cart race had me laughing and feeling like I was riding shotgun. Drew’s drive to keep Noel and her daughter safe from the past left me a little in love with him! Gabra Zackman has a smooth voice that made listening so easy! From the teaser at the end, I cannot wait for the next book!

Still a Witchy Hallmark, With a Dash of Mystery

This is my favorite book of Chase’s so far. The townspeople are established characters by now, but continue to develop. The main character, Noel, is tough as nails and a much more in your face than Abby was. Book 1 was a bit too Hallmark-y for me, and this one continues with the sappy sweet romance; yet not everything is quite so sun-shiny perfect. The love interest with the Deputy especially when her husband up and left her three years prior gives a sense of mystery and foreboding that I really enjoyed. Her struggle to piece back her relationship with Abby was refreshing, as was highlighting her struggles with being a single strong mother for her daughter who suffers from anxiety from her father’s disappearance. The books just piece together nicely even though they’re highlighting other characters and relationships. I don’t normally read straight up romance (especially with little sex scenes) but Chase is starting to get me hooked. The ending nearly made me cry (AGAIN – THANKS DEANNA) but the final chapters bridge perfectly into the next book in the series and reel’s in the hook to keep you going. Well done!

Heart of the Witch

Book two pulls you into Noel’s life and you find out more about her. They are a fun group (golf cart races) and just a little over protective of their Dad because he’s been sick. Can’t wait to listen to the next one. I love this family!

Good story

Book 2 in this series is just as good as book 1. The town inn keeper and the sherif make for an interesting lost love story. The side issues added to the overall story. The characters are endearing and entertaining ( the golf cart race was funny!). The narrator is very nice job! I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
