Publisher's Summary

Dylan Apel is having one heck of a summer. She knows her hand-made clothing is special, but magical? Discovering that she's a witch is bad enough, but when Dylan realizes there are folks who'll kill to possess her witchy powers - that's enough to make a girl want to hide out in the back of her boutique. The only problem is, Queen Witch is in town, itchin' to make sure Dylan learns to cast spells, and this witch won't take no for an answer. Dylan must learn fast - someone just killed her best client with a poisoned gown meant for Dylan. Was it the tall, mysterious hottie in black, who's suddenly everywhere she goes? After all, the first thing Roman Bane says is he doesn't like witches. Is he here to save her, or kill her? Dylan is barely getting a handle on her new powers when she finds herself surrounded by witches bossing her this way and that, local police nosing about, and wary clients - death by clothing is not good for business. And the solstice is coming...a time when witch powers are at their peak. Can Dylan survive the chaos long enough to figure out her new life?

Fun new series

Amy Boyles has crafted a new series with well developed characters that quickly grow on you. Angela Dawe, as always does a fine job of bringing it all to life. If you're a fan of cozy paranormal mysteries you won't want to miss this one.

Not for me

I should have read read more reviews. This book is filled with stereotypes found in most southern cozy mysteries. The characters and plot need more development.

If you enjoy Southern Drama queen

The idea behind story was good but the absolute silliness of the Southern Drama Queen it was wrapped in just ruined the story for me.
My husband felt the same so neither one of use will continue to read this author again.

Not For Me

This book is not for me. The characters are stereotypical and annoying, the mystery is underdeveloped and predictable and the humor is mean spirited. I stopped listening after chapter 2. I'm glad I didn't pay full price.

An amusing chic-lit

What did you like most about Scared Witchless?

The narrator did a very good job of voicing the parts, even the male ones, and expressing the emotional state of the main character.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The plot contains the common theme of a young person being awakened to her/his exceptional abilities, but is combined with several mysteries. The manner in which the heroine develops her abilities I found a bit thin. The use of humour throughout the story allows one to be reminded that the story is not to be taken too seriously.

The chic-lit model of the heroine being turned on by an alpha male, with her attendant emotional responses left this septuagenarian male cold. In addition, the (admittedly occasional) use of southern USA slang I found annoying, but it probably works for the book's intended audience.

Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe – was your favourite?

The heroine, whose name I have already forgotten.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. I doubt that I will listen to it again.

Any additional comments?

I'm of two minds as to whether I will get the second novel when it comes out. The heroine and her sisters are still in mortal danger, and it would be interesting to follow their story. But I cringe at having to endure more of the sickly chic-lit "romance" stuff, which is more animal attraction (a.k.a. lust), than real relationship development. I hope the author improves markedly on this aspect of her writing.
