Publisher's Summary

The promising debut of a hot new voice in paranormal romance - and the first of the Southern Witch novels.

The family magic seems to have skipped over Tammy Jo Trask. All she gets are a few untimely visits from long-dead, smart-mouthed family ghost Edie. But when her locket - an heirloom that happens to hold Edie's soul - is stolen in the midst of a town-wide crime spree, it's time for Tammy to find her inner witch.

After a few experiences with her dysfunctional magic, Tammy turns to the only person in small-town Duval, Texas, who can help: the very rich and highly magical Bryn Lyons. He might have all the answers - and a 007 savoir faire to boot - but the locket isn't the only heirloom passed down in Tammy's family. She also inherited a warning: stay away from Lyons.

What a Fun Read! 1 thing UPSET me...

I truly enjoyed this book. It was funny, action packed, and just plain fun to listen to. Mandy does a great job portraying all the characters and really brought each one to life.
The one thing that upset me is that not all of the Southern Witch series are on audio.
There are 2 other books in this series in book form but not audio, and Frost has committed to write at least two more books in the series. I do a lot of commuting and it is difficult to "read" the books so I choose audio.
I guess my main complaint is when you have a good book or series and then you find out not all the books are available in the format you want. This happens a lot and I try to research before buying but sometimes you just gotta have that one book. This book was it for me. I hope that the rest of the series gets put to audio soon, I will buy them without thinking twice!

Fun Story

Would-be Witch lacks some of the polish that more seasoned writers have but
Kimberly Frost shows a lot of promise and a wonderful imagination. Mindy Seigfried didn't do the book justice with her monotone and stilted, first grade reading style. The listening experience would have greatly improved with a narrator who had more empathy for the story. Looking forward to seeing more novels by this author.

Southern Witch Series is FAB

I absolutely loved this book. Its a romantic comedy with a wonderful love triangle. Tammy Jo is a spunky pastry chef who just happens to come from a lineage of witches. Unfortunately, she believes she's not a witch until she meets Bryn Lyons. He's on her family's "say no" list but its obvious that Tammy Jo wants to say yes as does Bryn. However, first Tammy Jo has to settle things with her protective ex husband who is still in love with her.

And I can't forget Mercutio, her adopted ocicat.

Good story...

This was a cute story, a little love and a little mystery all tied up in an easy listen.

Cute, harmless time passer

If it were not for the occasional disappearance of the main characters southern accent this book would be perfect. I am a southerner and it was a bit over done. With that said the story was really good & I especially loved the cat. It was easy to follow and the reader did a great job with different characters.

So fun!

If you know any Texan boys, you will find this book hilarious! If you don't know any Texan boys, you will find this book enlightening :) In the Would-be Witch, Kimberly Frost brilliantly builds a paranormal world in an already weird place-small town Texas. Try this book. It is fun and the narrator is amazing!

Meh

Overall the plot is OK. It was either the narration or simplistic writing, but parts got on my nerves. Not the story, but the descriptions and narrative.

Fun..interesting worth the credit and time

Would you consider the audio edition of Would-be Witch to be better than the print version?

Yes because I listen while I clean

What other book might you compare Would-be Witch to and why?

H.P.Mallory's books... My favorite author. They are comparable

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

Not that I know of

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

Yes

Any additional comments?

Great book! Really enjoyed it! Wish there were more on audible

Delightful

A very interesting story. It gets better in the next two installments, unfortunately Audible doesn't have it yet. It's funny and full of action . Definitely worth a credit.
