Pepper McKay comes from a long line of powerful witches. Unfortunately, magic brings her nothing but trouble. She learned the love of wildlife rescue and rehab from her Aunt Ashling. After graduating from college, Pepper works for Salem Wildlife Sanctuary and lives from paycheck to paycheck, until she inherits the McKay property in Lobster Cove. With the family land and resources, she dares to dream of starting her own wildlife rescue and rehabilitation center.

Lathen Quartz, a former Navy SEAL turned handyman, maintains the enchanted McKay property for the McKay estate. But someone is trying to steal the McKay magic. Lathen offers to help Pepper achieve her life-long dream of building a wildlife center. During the long hours spent together on the project, their mutual attraction can't be denied. But each harbors a deep, dark secret. Will they overcome their demons and give love a chance?

A very enjoyable listen. Great Narrator

This was a good story. The characters were well developed and the story had a very nice pace and flow. I liked that it was not just about a witch but also a marine biologist/animal rescue worker. The mystery taking place was well developed and unfolds at the all the Right times. The romance was done well as the two main characters took their time and actually got to know each other. My only complaint, the sex scenes felt like they were thrown in for fanfare and not necessary for the plot. They were done well, but the story could have progressed the same with out them or just a mention of them. I don’t have any issue with sex scenes, but they just felt like they were added to garner sales to a certain audience versus having a straight forward romantic comedy. Not a deal breaker by any means and I still would recommend this book.

The narration was done quite well by Kate Tyler. She brings the characters to life with a great repertoire of voices.

I requested a free review copy of this audiobook and I am leaving a voluntary and honest review.

Sweet Easy Read

If you are looking for a sweet easy read this is it. There is not much action or conflict in this book and there is alot of extra unnecessary fluff. Numerous times things are mentioned that I thought would come into play later but they never did and then other times things happen wit no explanation when there really needed to be one. That being said it was a very enjoyable story overall and everything was wrapped up nicely at the end. The narrator did a fantastic job bringing the story to life with easy to understand and distinguishable character voices.

Romance heavy but not bad

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a decent book. I'm not a huge fan of the romance genre, but have found I can still enjoy paranormal romance stories if they are balanced. This one fell on the romance side a bit, but not so much that I couldn't still enjoy it. It had just enough paranormal aspects, though, to keep my attention. Kate Tyler's narration is great and is a large part of why I was able to finish the book. If you're a big fan of romance books, you'll love it. If you are like me, and don't mind some romance with your urban fantasy, then you will probably enjoy it, though that will depend on your romance threshold.

Daunting dreams, with powers!

Love and romances converge amongst even the most daunting of dramas. Pepper finds herself inheriting the place of her dreams, with stings attached, and looming.

An Exciting Journey Through Lobster Cove!

This is a fun, entertaining listen full of magic, romance, humor and paranormal creatures. I really enjoyed it and, in fact, finished the book in one sitting. Kate Tyler's narration is great. She does an excellent job giving each character a unique voice which really brings the book to life. I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

Quick, engaging romance with a witchcraft twist.

If you could sum up A Witch's Journey in three words, what would they be?

Romance, Witchcraft, Adventure

What did you like best about this story?

I liked when Pepper traveled. Her trip to Alaska added a great extra characters and helped develop one of the important characters, Lathen.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scenes in Alaska sounded beautiful. The narrator makes the characters distinct so it's easier to follow.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I liked the book, but I thought the sex was thrown in a little quickly and was a little more graphic than I needed.

Any additional comments?

Well read! I like the narrator, Kate. She's got a good voice that's easy to listen to and brings the story to life!

It Ain't Easy Being Magic

One would think that having magic powers would make life easier, but for Pepper McKay, a witch, and Lathen Quartz, a werewolf, it leads to some interesting situations and complications. And when romance develops, as it often does even with mere mortals, eventually the extended families become involved. The characters are engaging, and the action unfolds in Lobster Cove, Maine and Alaska making me wish I could join them in such beautiful settings. Very enjoyable.

Not as much depth as I'd like



I liked Tyler's narration a lot. I feel like she portrayed the characters well and showed emotion while she was reading to us. It felt realistic with the romantic scenes. I liked her normal reading voice as well, it was even paced! I give it a 5/5 for good production!

The story I liked for the most part. It had a good amount of fun and twists in the plot. But I also feel like it could have gone deeper. I found the sexy scenes to have a lot of emotion, but outside that I just didn't connect with the story overall. I would give the story a 3.5/5 stars for giving me a mostly feel good story, but not exploring the characters in as much depth as I would like.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Kate Tyler. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Narration added that something extra

Pepper McKay was a witch with dreams. She always wanted to have her own animal rescue. Low and behold. She received a bequest with enough land to allow for her to have her dream. With that land came a very sexy handyman with secrets of his own.

HOT. STEAMY. DELICIOUS. Were just a few of the words to describe the handy man, Lathen. The man had very handy skill and not just to fix things around the property. I think he could be a book boyfriend, a night time dream/fantasy.

I enjoyed the story overall. I love paranormal activities, magic, shifters, witches and the like. There was heated chemistry. Charming setting in Lobster Cover but mainly on the McKay estate. There was just something about the land that got me.

Now let us switch gears a bit. I found some of the scenes to be just down right wrong. I felt they were forced and that made them feel fake. There was a story for sure but there was no depth to it. I found something missing when I got to the end of the read. I was almost hoping for more of it to allow for things to truly wrap up in my head. If you are looking for a story with magic, a witch, a shifter, enchanted land, and hot chemistry. The you have a read you will enjoy. If you are looking for true depth and a raw appeal not so much.

Narration provided that little extra needed to move things along and make tense passages feel more flowing. The audio was smooth and adjusted to speed change well.

A Magical Adventure in Lobster Cove!

This was a really enjoyable listen, Pepper a marine biologist works at a wildlife rescue sanctuary in Salem. Unfortunately after using magic to avert a catastrophe Pepper has to leave town. I like the twist where witch has to leave Salem. At the same time her dead aunt’s cabin becomes hers with a large financial legacy. When Pepper arrives in Lobster Cove she meets the builder/handyman who has been tasked with building an Avery to house her bird.
Lathen and Pepper get closer, and she finds out he still suffering from his time in the service, where a few of his colleagues were killed.
I hope this is the first in a series, it was a complete story, and quite complex meeting lots of characters and members of family and the town’s people who mostly welcome Pepper and her Wildlife Marine rescue
This book is told in the third person multiple style which for this tale works really well. If you are looking for a sweet, easy enjoyable story with some fabulous characters, a supernatural suspense running quietly throughout the story, a few smoldering sex scenes, and then this is the book for you. An enjoyable listen, I loved it.
