Publisher's Summary

A cursed sleuth. A gallery of secrets. Will this cryptic case be her last?

Pet psychic Jolene is still plagued by a hex that keeps her powers on a leash. So when her detective crush asks for help solving a strange murder at the Museum of Magical Artifacts, she hopes to find clues to break her own sorcerous chains. But faced with a web of lies, Jolene’s secret shifter identity might be the very thing that sets her in the killer’s sights. 

Along with her not-quite-boyfriend’s lie-sniffing German Shepherd, Jolene puts her nose to the ground to spring a trap on the culprit. But with the elusive villain apparently able to vanish into thin air, she fears her buried past could come back to bite her. 

Can Jolene disenchant her own jinx before a murderer casts the fatal blow?

Loved it!

Erin Johnson keeps the laughs coming while drawing you in further to the darker side of Bijou Mer. Hannah continues to bring the characters to life with her narration. Jolene struggles to open up more to Peter and tell him the truth about who she really is before he finds out on his own. When she finally does, will she be pleasantly surprised or will her worst fears come true?

I really enjoyed this! Give it a try

I just recently discovered this author thru an author crawl on Facebook and I am so glad I did. This book was a delightful story about a shifter who was cursed and lost all her powers. For some reason when that happened, she was gained the ability to talk to animals. She now makes her living utilizing this ability while at the same time keeping those around her from knowing that is what she is doing.

This story centers around a murder in a museum that is getting set for a cursed objects exhibit. I won't give away the story, but it kept my attention well and even surprised me a bit at the ending when the murderer was exposed. It is a fun, light story and perfect for such a stressful time as we all find our lives upended due to the Covid virus. Lose yourself in the story and at least for a time life leave the stress behind.

The story was nice and enjoyable, the narrator was a good fit and her voices for the characters was really good.

Bravo!

This is the fourth book in Ms Johnson’s Magic Market series of cozy mysteries. Jolene is a shifter who lost her powers due to a curse. A side effect of the curse is that she can now talk to animals. To make matters worse, she is in love with a police detective who considers shifters to be a second class citizens.

This latest book has Jolene and her would be boyfriend trying to solve a couple of murders that take place in the Museum of Magic. Johnson will keep you guessing until the end as to whom the murderer is. A very pleasant, breezy, and enjoyable listen! I highly recommend this book. The only question I have is, will Jolene ever get her powers back?

Very Entertaining

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily posting this review and any opinions expressed herein are my own.

This is the fourth book in the Magic Market Mystery Series. The main story of the mystery at the Museum is a standalone story but the ongoing mystery related to Jolene's curse, her relationship with Peter and Daisy, and her identity as a shifter may make this not a standalone book. The author does provide quick summaries of some events but, in my opinion, you should start with the first book in the series -- you won't regret it.

This is a really fun series with a wonderful narrator. It has good humor, enjoyable characters, and an entertaining mystery. I really liked how the author handled the shifter issue with Peter. Overall, I found this story and its characters to be enchanting. Recommend.

Suspenseful

This one had me guessing all the way to the end. Jolene,Peter and Daisy have another murder to solve. Now that Peter knows Jolene has no powers can he handle that news? Can she tell him everything? Will he accept her completely? The shifter mob boss/loan shark wants to see her. That can’t be good but what is it about?

Mystery museum mayhem :)

I love this series. Erin weaves a very compelling story as a fallen from grace lawyer now in a magical slum becomes a police consultant. It has the best parts of murder mysteries mixed with the best parts of a magical world. As a recent law grad, I also love the legal references. This mystery has a good hook and keeps you guessing along the way as interesting people are introduced. The story even gets around the gritty downside of audio mysteries by having its own local sets of curses so that profanity isn't off putting or even horrible. There is no traditional profanity and even my kids love to hear the story about Joleen :)

A new PR director dead? Joleen and Peter investigate a spooky mystery in an old run down museum.

How I love love love being back with Jolene!

This book really provides a fun escape in difficult times. And the narrator was awesome. Her ‘woofs’ are so real! The author set the narrator quite a challenge, with some of the voices! But the narrator rose to the challenge and did an awesome job. I highly recommend this book!

Bewitching mystery

I really loved this book. This is my favourite book in the series so far, although I might have said that about the last but each book gets better and better, so that it is hard to choose. I really love the characters and find each book adds another level to the enjoyment and intrigue that surrounds them. Jolene is a strong independent woman that doesn't need anyone but at the same time longs to be normal and this comes across really well in the story, so much so that you are rooting for it to come out well for her and her friends. I really like the friendship between her and Daisy the Lie detecting dog, one minute they are snipping at each other and then worried the other is okay, also with Peter now knowing one of her secrets it adds another sparkle to the book. The mystery was good and I certainly didn't work out who the murder was. I can't wait for the next book in either of the authors series, both is bound to be funny, entertaining and highly enjoyable and a book I would recommend.
Jolene is asked to.consult on another one of Peter's case despite there being no animals involved. He does this because he thinks the place the murder happened would be highly interesting to her. It happen in an old museum, one that is currently hosting an exhibition on cursed artefacts. Jolene ever hopeful that she can find a cure for the curse that took her magic and stopped her ability to shift into an owl, jumps at the chance to put a murder behind bars and maybe just maybe find some answers on curses. A lot of people out side the museum are unhappy with the exhibition and a lot of people inside were unhappy with the changes the dead man was making. But are they really a motive to murderer someone? Jolene, Peter and Daisy will have to work together in order to get to the bottom of the murder, as well as work with a new boss. Jolene also has the worried fear over a friends strange behaviour and avoiding the leader of the underground shifters before he can ask her to do something she might regret or damages her friendship with Peter. Of course the big secret she still hides might do that all by its self.
I really like the narrator, every book she has read has got a five star for the narrator's performance from me because she does such a good job and really works.hard to make it an enjoyable and exciting listen.
