Publisher's Summary

Nola Leary would have been content to stay in Kilcairy, Ireland, healing villagers at her family’s clinic with a mix of magic and modern medicine. But a series of ill-timed omens and a deathbed promise to her grandmother have sent her on a quest to Half-Moon Hollow, Kentucky, to secure her family’s magical potency for the next generation. Her supernatural task? To unearth four artifacts hidden by her grandfather before a rival magical family beats her to it.

Complication One: The artifacts are lost somewhere in vampire Jane Jameson’s occult bookshop. Complication Two: Her new neighbor, Jed Trudeau, keeps turning up half-naked at the strangest times, a distraction Nola doesn’t need. And teaming up with a real-life Adonis is as dangerous as it sounds, especially since Jed’s got the face of an angel and the abs of a washboard. Can Nola complete her mission before falling completely under his spell?

    "Another Molly Harper Fan Favorite..."

    I love the combo of Molly Harper's books and Amanda Ronconi's voice narrating her books. You're left with a witty, magical love story that had me feeling gitty after listening to it. Nola Leary travels from Ireland to the Hollow in Kentucky to find her mystical family treasures. Those treasures happen to be hidden in plain sight at Jane Jameson's occult bookshop. The story gets predictable towards the end when Nola thinks she's at a lost with finding the treasures in time but she's a smart cookie figuring out her family's past and alas, solving the puzzle. I wish the story had a more solid ending after it was all said and done. MH should've written an epilogue to finish the story of Nola's travels and happy ending. You'll see what I mean if you listen to it. It was worth the credit in my opinion because I'm a M.Harper fan, but if you haven't read her previous books, you'll be kind of lost with the back story of the characters. I reccommend started from the beginning of the series and working your way down to this one.

    Story
    "Another homerun for Harper/Ronconi"
    Where does A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say that the Nice Girls... series by Harper is my favorite for this genre, but the Witch's Handbook was a fun, easy read (listen). I liked that Harper integrated some of my favorite characters from Half Moon Hollow into this story, but the story holds on its own even if you haven't read other books by the author.


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is my favorite narrator by far on audible! Amanda Ronconi has great comedic timing, and I love the way she gives all of the characters unique voices. I don't know how she does it! I would much prefer listening to her read these stories than reading on my own.

    Before I purchased this book I saw a lot of negative reviews on her performance, but it didn't really bother me except for when I first started listening. The main character has a Boston accent, so if you have a hard time understanding that speaking style then maybe this book isn't for you. I found that once I got into the story the accent wasn't as distracting and actually contributes to what I like best about Ronconi - her ability to make all of the characters distinct.


    Any additional comments?

    Fun read, and well worth a credit!

    "Humorously Good"
    What made the experience of listening to A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses the most enjoyable?

    I love that Amanda Ronconi is continuing to narrate all of Molly Harpers books. She brings everything to life. This book had me laughing hard and in a couple of instances wondering where she went with it. In all I loved it.


    Which character – as performed by Amanda Ronconi – was your favorite?

    I always loved Jane's character...always a hoot and very happy that Ms. Harper continues to bring back into the books.


    Any additional comments?

    For a branch off story for the Half Moon Hallows series it's pretty good.

    Story
    "Mixed review-would have rated overall & story 3.5"
    Would you try another book from Molly Harper and/or Amanda Ronconi?

    Yes, I like both


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

    The second half of the book was the most interesting.. Least: The first half moved slow,also took awhile to get used to listening to a great narrator having to create an accent that was a mish mash of three. After a while it was ok but at beginning it was slightly irritating.


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes! She is a great narrator, but as mentioned above this one wasn't her best. I think it was more the character, who had a mixture of several accents that took away from it somewhat.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Nola and Jed clearing the air and working together sooner.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed having characters from previous books in the series being an intricate part of the story. Would have rated overall and story 3.5 if you were able to use half stars. All in all it was a good book, not one of her best, just a little slow in first half.

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    "I love this author"

    Molly Harper writes with a sense of humor and I love that. All of her books are that way. I laughed out loud in all of them. I really enjoy the reader too. I hope she never changes readers for her books. This story was good from start to finish. I hope she follows up the characters in a future book.

    "Funny and Fun - well written and well read"

    Another instalment in Molly Harper's universe of ordinary life with a twist of the supernatural. All her characters are believable and likeable....the one's you're meant to like anyway; and there's always a twist in the tale to keep the story interesting up to the end.
    These aren't deep and meaningful stories and they aren't meant to be, what they are is a lot of fun, and funny to boot. This book in the series is no exception.
    This is the story of an Irish lass who comes to Half Moon Hollow to collect some special items once held by a long lost, now deceased relative who owned the bookshop now owned and run by likeable, disaster magnet Jane, who just happens to be a vampire.
    ....and then there's the drop dead gorgeous neighbour who seems to have an aversion to wearing shirts.
    This is a wonderful lighthearted 'read' that will give you a laugh, and leave you feeling much better about your day.

    Where does A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Molly Harper is without a doubt one of my favorite authors. Her characters have personalities that love. A little snarky, funny and bright. The narrator, Amanda Ronconi is PERFECT for her books and this one is no exception. Amanda does a beliveable Irish/Boston accent. I own all of Molly Harper's books and will continue to buy them as fast as she can write them. I love the Half Moon Hollow series.
