Publisher's Summary

Michelle has been figuring out what her life is like now that the demon has been killed, and Sylvia and Varro are dead. Even the clans of witches trying to attract her to their way of life have backed off and given her a chance to grieve. Her relationship with Elron is stronger than ever, but there are things left unsaid.

On the way to her parents' wedding, the delicate calm she’d been living in is broken. Witches are out for her blood, her family is caught in the crossfire, and friendships are threatened. Work doesn’t let up either, and she partners up with Elron to deal with magic gone wild. Michelle finds that her problems are larger than one clan of witches, and is forced to choose between the people she holds dear and the way of life she loves.

This is the fourth book in a series, following A Witch's Trial. It is a standalone novel, however, your experience will be greatly enhanced if you've heard the previous books.

I enjoyed the first 3, this is better.

Jeff Hays did all the parts on the first 3 books. I think Laurie Winkel upped the game this time, having them both read gave depth to the story. N. E. Conneely gave us a wonderful world of magic, elves, and witches. I like the odd couple a plucky young witch and the world worn elf partner. A heck of a magic brawl / witch clan meeting is quite the show. All of these audio books are a treat.

A great addition to a wonderful series

I feel the need to start this book review by saying that all of these books are wonderful, adventurous, yet charming and I would not be a good reviewer if I did not say consider going back and listen to the first 3 books in this series before this one. Extend the enjoyment.

This book has less focus on Michelle’s police work but that doesn’t mean that there is one iota less adventure. N.E. Conneely has packed this story with surprises galore. This wonderful book is an adventure from start to finish.

The narration by Jeff Hays and Laurie Catherine Winkel is wonderfully expressive and the characters that they play throughout this book are believable and so well represented. They put the perfect amount of emotion and personality into the characterization. The sound quality is outstanding and the volume level is consistent throughout.

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

Another great book in this paranormal series

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



The first three books in the series were quite a ride, and I'm happy to see this one stand on its own. It starts out with quite the predicament with Michelle's kidnapping and doesn't hold the punches with her crazy and dangerous life.

While the main villain in the first 3 book story arc was a scary and malicious demon, this book's villain was none other than dear old Grandma wanting Michelle to join her clan. Yep, she is still on that rampage from the earlier books. Except here she has gone to horrific lengths to get her point across.

But I gotta say, it was nice to have a bit of redemption in the end, and a positive, outcome, though not at all what Michelle was wanting at the start.

I must also add, the changes in narration style fit the book wonderfully. I liked that there were two narrators switching off the roles, it made Michelle more relatable to have a female voice.

Overall, another great installment of this series and a fun audio.

My favorite so far!

I have to say this installment is my favorite. First off, can poor Michelle just have a moment to breath and enjoy her new relationship with Elron? The answer is NO! A Witch's Concern is non stop action from page one. The drama. The Grandmother. The kidnapping. OH MY! I LOVED IT. The author has created quite a fun and intriguing series.

There were two narrators; Jeff Hays and Laurie Catherine Winkel. Both did a phenomenal job bringing the story to life. The danger. The destruction. The violence. It all sprang from my speakers. I didn't want to get out the car, lol.

Michelle's clan scar is explained as she fights

*I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I like the blend of two narrators, dividing the male and female roles. It gives more dynamic to the characters. Jeff knows these characters well, and has all their voices ready to go for us here. Laurie is new to me and the series, and reads through the female cast with heart. When I first started I didn't know if I liked the up-swing at the end of her sentences when voicing Michelle. It gave Michelle a felling that she was better than others that I didn't think Michelle had. As the book went, it eased and Laurie fell into Michelle's voice for me.

Michelle is such a nice person/character. I like that about her. Trouble finds her because she works with the police on cases. But in this books, it's because she's a clanless witch and her grandmother is determined Michelle will take her rightful place in her clan. Michelle, however, likes the freedom of being clanless. Michelle doesn't want to hurt anyone, she wants to help and not be tied to a specific clans rules. However she still has lingering memories of what she had to do in the last book. It weighs on her mind, even though it was the only option and something Sylvia wanted. She worries about her and Elron as well as it's something she doesn't want to do.

Oh my. Elron is such a great person. He's an elf, and he's fighting his protective instincts when it comes to Michelle. Elron's feelings for Michelle are finally seen by Michelle. Michelle starts to see that even though she had to do what she did, Elron does not hold it against her. They are just so adorable!

We have a case of characters that live in the lodge. It's always great seeing them as they are friends and a few rotate through. We don't see as many of them in this book as this book is focused on Michelle and the problems that have found her - the clans. We do get answers to Michelle's clan scar and things with her grandmother. Michelle fights hard against many things, but she's going to have a very full future ahead of her.

This book felt to be a little different in the story line. We follow Michelle and the troubles that find her, bringing her to make some tough choices. We don't get a case she's working on, though there are small items that come up she tends to. This is mostly Michelle learning about herself and growing. The story still has the same action and full of spell being thrown around, but it's about Michelle this time and not just helping others.

There are more books in the series with Michelle. I'm looking forward to them as there are hints of what's to come in this book... what's next in Michelle's life, demons, and more I'm sure.

The narrator switch

is kind of annoying, but isn't so bad. It's nice Jeff is still there for Elron/other males and Annie does a great job. It would be ideal to see her re record for the previous books, for consistency. I know a lot of people are pretty agitated by narrator change ups, some drop series all together.

Yes for two narrators!

So I was super excited to get to the next in the series by Conneely. I enjoyed the past cozy mystery witch books and wanted to continue with this story! This was a good book, although there isn’t much of a mystery here. I think Conneely did well with this storyline of grandmother trying to force Michele to join something she has no desire to do. It was interesting to see how “good intentions” can turn horrible and create so much havoc. I liked this one even though there wasn’t really a mystery here, it was exciting and suspenseful with the clan storyline! I give it a 4.5/5 stars.

With this book we get two narrators! Which is awesome. I loved that we get a female voice for Michele finally. And Laurie does such a good job. She has a good tone and I like what she does for each character in the story. Jeff is a familiar voice and I still like what he does, but I am happy to have another narrator to complement his tone and inflection. I hope they continue working together! I give the narration a 5/5 stars!

Amazing right from the start!

Any additional comments?

I loved the first set of audiobooks in this series and this one doesn't disappoint at all! This audiobook starts with a bang with Michelle's kidnapping and stays intense throughout the whole novel.

Michelle is an independent, strong witch who feels no alliance to any clan and wants to keep it that way. Her Grandmother feels differently. I love that we were able to learn quite a bit more about her family history and the line of strong female witches in her family. Her Grandmother does not want to see this line end and goes to extreme measures to get Michelle to consent to her wishes, almost shocking at times!

I have always loved Michelle's character throughout the first set of books and in this book she still remains my favourite. She has such a kind heart and just wants to do what is right and help others but she just can't get a break. I loved that the focus of this book is her - no extra big case, just Michelle. Her character deserves it, she is just one of those individuals that gives of herself with no expectation of something in return. Her relationship with Elron is blossoming (yay!), they both deserve a loving relationship and not to mention some time to work on it.

The narration in this audiobook is excellent and adds to the drama and flair of the writing. I couldn't stop listening as I just wanted to hear what was going to happen next with her. The plot is fantastic and keeps you on the edge of your seat. This is by far my favourite book in this amazing series. This series constantly leaves you guessing on who or what will show up and happen and leaves you wanting more.

My favorite in the series so far

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

A Witch’s Concern is the fourth book in Witch for Hire series. I’ve enjoyed all of the books in the series but A Witch’s Concern is my favorite so far.

Michelle continues to help police departments contain supernatural problems. She’s also come across a couple on her own, such as a biting teacup. As more and more things occur wherever she is, she realizes that some of it may be because of her grandmother who is insistent that Michelle join her clan.

There’s a lot of action in A Witch’s Concern and it all includes a lot of magic. Michelle seems to be getting stronger, possibly because she’s had to deal with so many attacks.

I like how Michelle’s relationships have progressed, especially the one with Elron. The only person she can’t get along with is her grandmother because Michelle won’t bend to her will.

The characters are unusual and diverse. You never know who or what is going to show up, whether it’s a human, an elf, a werewolf, a brownie…I could go on. It’s such and interesting world!

The narrators did a great job. I like having a male and female narrator because it makes it a lot easier to differentiate who is speaking, although Jeff Hays did an amazing job in the first three books doing both male and female voices.

I definitely recommend A Witch’s Concern and though it does stand on its own, it is an even better read if the books are read in order. I’m looking forward to listening to or reading the next book in the series.

A refreshing and highly entertaining read!

Any additional comments?

A Witch's Concern by N.E. Conneely is a refreshing and highly entertaining read, revolving around a young witch and her adventures.

I loved this book; the plot was unique, the characters and their conflicts felt real and the sub-plots were very interesting. I enjoyed listening to the story from start till the end, and even though this is the 4th book in A With's Path series, I didn't have any trouble getting into it. So this book can safely be read as a stand alone as well, but I am considering reading all the previous parts before going for the next ones.

The characterization was good, if not brilliant, and even though I wasn't able to connect to the main lead, Michelle, in a very strong way, I liked her quite a lot and that was enough for me to read about her and her adventures (or misadventures.) Elron's character felt a bit shaky initially but by the end of the book, he proved to be a strong male lead.

The narration was good for the most part. It took me some time to get into Elron's (Jeff Hays) narration, though I did love the female lead's narration a lot! Lauri's voice and expressions were really good and made listening to this audiobook a very pleasant experience.

I'd recommend this book to all the paranormal and supernatural lovers, along with those who love reading about witches, elves and magic.

I Love this series, and every book gets better!

We start with Michelle on the way to her parents wedding when she gets a puncture, when a car stops Michelle realises this was trap, and realises she has been kidnapped by witches from her mother’s former coven.
Michelle has grown up without a coven, and she wants stay Clan less. Elron and Michelle’s relationship grows slow and steady. This is about her parents and her grandmothers, and one of her grandmother Gretchen is determined to have Michelle in her Coven.
This book  is  about family, and the lengths some go to get their own way. This is more about love from a family Michelle had never met on her father side.
This is an excellent story, and we understand more about how destiny catches up Michelle whether she likes or not.
Great narration Jeff’s male voices were very distinctive and I knew who was speaking every time. Laurel is Michelle and conjures her personality exactly. This is my fourth  audiobook in the series and everyone feels like old friends ( not the baddies )
