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?

Scared Witchless

This is book #1 of this, new to me, series written by Amy Boyles with accompanying audiobook narrated by Angela Boyles. I always enjoy narrations by Angela Dawe because she is so talented in her range of character voices which enhance their written character personalities.
This story sets the stage for the new series and helps you become acquainted with the main characters who will be present in the subsequent stories. I love the southern dialect and speech, with laugh out loud moments that make you smile. Easy to recommend to teens and up, anyone who enjoys a light hearted, paranormal mystery series. 😍

Quirky, Funny, Predictable Story

This is the first book by this author I've sampled. I considered that this book could be enjoyable if you like teenage romance. This is not to say the characters are teenagers but they sure behave like they are, except for grandma and Milly. It seems like this author has a huge imagination, she just has a problem figuring out how to execute a plot that sounds like something adults would do.

I don't intend to shoot this story down. In some ways it's fun, in some ways it's cringe worthy and I stopped playing it at several points because I found the main character acting like a school girl when given a clear prompt of interest by the 'bodyguard.' No effort is given to ask him how he feels about her. Everything is etched in stone when words leave his lips that don't shine well on what turns out is her heritage that she was clueless about just half a day before.

Over all I think this has great potential as a series goes if women who own their own businesses can behave like rational beings in irrational situations. Dylan finds out there are a lot of rules being a witch and she seems to want to try to follow then, but circumstances bring her to break many. Some that could have her boiled in oil as a punishment even though there are ways to fix such transgressions.

It will be a while before I get back to this series. I likely will try one more in hopes the characters grow up and try not to be so vapid.

If you like contemporary fantasy and enjoy a story written to make you laugh. You may want to check it out.

Angela Dawe does a fine job portraying characters. Other than a hitch in the pronunciation of a few common words, I'd say is near flawless in how she executes her task of narrating this story.

A Lot of Fun!

The story was fun. The acting on the audio book was even better. Lots of different voices brought out different characters, great comic timing, very well done and enjoyable to listen to. I started only curious about how audio books worked and ended up staying up half the night to hear the end. Great job!

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.

scared witchless

Intriguing to the end. I found it hard to get used to the Narrators accent but eventually did. The story is real cozy mystery with just the right combination of romance and intrigue.
