Publisher's Summary

Carly Bell Hartwell's love potions are always in demand in Hitching Post, Alabama, the wedding capital of the South. When Katie Sue Perrywinkle walks into the Little Shop of Potions, Carly is surprised and delighted to see her old childhood friend. Katie Sue fled her hometown and a troubled family more than a decade ago. But she's not back for a social visit; she's come to settle a score with Senator Warren Calhoun, who is in town for his son's high-profile wedding. But before Katie Sue has a chance to voice any objections, she's forced to forever hold her peace.

After finding her friend dead, Carly vows to find her murderer. Were the corrupt Calhouns willing to go to any lengths to avoid a scandal? Did Katie Sue's family take the term "bad blood" to a whole new level? And why did the bride to be come to Carly for a love potion? As Carly gets closer to the truth, a killer is planning a very chilly reception...

Narrators voice

I understand the need for the "southern accent" but gheee lawd this is a lot. And the term "care bear" is sickly sweet. Store is good just tone down the southern speak

a fun book!

I enjoyed this book. It was a fun listen. I laughed out loud because obviously the narator enjoys what she does and she emphasises what need to be emphasised.

An enjoyable mystery series

I've listened to the first two titles in this series and hope there will be many more. Two witches, cousins born months apart, live in the town of Hitching Post, Alabama with their very extended family. One has turned to healing and the other to hexing, but never death. Good plots and typical Southern belles, gents and strange relatives.

A Vast Improvement But Still.....

Heather Blake really needs a better editor. She has good characters, good stories and good world building she just to work on the smaller details.

Anyhow......

As I said before this is a vast improvement from the previous book.
Dillon and Carly's interaction are improved. How Dillon pursues Carly a lot more genuine.
BUT......
My main problem still lies with EVERYONE telling Carly "that's a good man why did you let him go" and not saying ANYTHING about how they broke up in the first place. I am not a spoiler so I will not say what that is.

Again it is the side characters is were the humor lies and Carla and Delia's relationship is again(for me) the best part of the book.

If you liked the first book this book is an improvement.

First time reader

This was my first book by Heather Blake and it was really nice. An easy read that I could listen to for while needing to do other things. There were a lot of characters so at some points I got a little confused on who was where. The author though makes it easy to catch up.

Good Witch

Heather Blake is one of my favorite mystery, good witch, fun, writers.

The books are light hearted and make for a great read after a stressful day. It's easy listening with great reader voice and storyline.

Feel good- light mystery with magic

I really enjoy listening to the narrator tell this story. Ms. Mercer-Meyer is able to do variety of characters but nothing is over done. The story was fun. I'm on to the next one in the series. I listen while I clean my house, run my errands, and drive my kids all over the place everyday. Audiobooks like this are my zen. 😎

good story building

enjoyed the mystery. I appreciate the way that Blake builds up the story and then gets to the mystery. it's a nice change from the opening murder plot.
