Cute story

Although this audiobook is shorter than what I typically listen to, it was still good. It ended with the possibility of more to come which is good.

I received this free audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Even better than the first book I read in the seri

Sick of Murder, my second short read/listen from author Amelia Morgan. Well-written & enjoyable, a cute, clean cozy mystery. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it. I was impressed and enjoyed the vocal variety & inflections of narrator Robin Waters. I look forward to reading more in this series & from this author and since I own other books by her it will be easy.. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018

Murder and Magic

With her detective fiance sick with the flu, good witch Meg investigates the murder of a friend. Using some spells to enhance her sleuthing, she exposes the killer. A short cozy that would appeal to adult and YA readers. I was gifted this from the author.

Great for car rides

I really enjoyed the story and the narration. I listened to this during a 2 hour car ride and was very pleased that I was able to hear the mystery solved by the time I got to my destination!!

Not the best

This story left a lot to be desired. I don’t think the narration was that good and the story itself was even worse. It’s seem to be rushed and felt like it left out a lot of details. The main character’s friend gets murdered and she doesn’t even act upset. I like cozy mysteries in general but I’m going to stay away from this series.

Straightforward mystery for very young readers

SPOILER ALERT! Do not read the rest of the review if you don't want to know how it ends.

SPOILER WARNING**************SPOILER WARNING*************SPOILER WARNING***********

O.k. if you dare read further then the spoiler is on you.

Author Amelia Morgan wrote this straightforward mystery aimed at readers 10-12 years old (in my estimation). Given that audience, the story is paced well and the characters engaging for a young reader's mind. Nothing offensive or inappropriate for a young reader appears in the pages.

The protagonist, Meg, is a charismatic good witch who solves homicides. She seems quite skilled in casting spells. This creates a problem; why can't she just cast a spell to solve the mystery? Suspending disbelief, the story is a good one and engaging.

The massive problem comes in the wasted opportunity at the end of book.

SPOILER SECTION:

After the real killer is captured and safely locked away, we are left with a scene of the voluptuous (read: dangerous) witch Pamela who has insinuated herself into Meg's life. In her book, witches can generate illusions of themselves. It's not too much of a stretch to imagine they can influence others to do their bidding since they can wipe memories completely.

Even a 10 year old would be rightly suspicious of Pamela, a natural antagonist if there ever was one. A young reader would never forget this book had Amelia simply had Meg slowly figure out that there was a reason there were so many murders in Enchanted Cove. All these years and these two witches had never crossed paths? Riiiight. Hopefully, Amelia is laughing at this review right now and the next several books in the series (there IS a series, correct?) will flesh out Pamela being Meg's nemesis.

The Witch Investigator

When her friend is found dead and her policeman boyfriend is down with the flu, Enchanted Bay witch Meg sets out to hunt down the killer, armed with her investigative talents and maybe a little magic in this cute little cozy mystery. Light hearted entertainment (never mind the dead body) and a great short read.

A very short cozy mystery...

It's a difficult book to rate for two reasons - one, as it's really short there's no room for character development and two, as it's really short there's no room for complex murder investigation:) and that's the biggest flaw of the story... Meg has three short conversations with three suspects and suddenly, out of the blue, the killer reveals themselves because they feal threatened by her investigation for no apparent reason, really... So it's 2 stars for the murder plot.
On the other hand, the main character is likeable, the "witchy" part of the story is intriguing and has a nice twist to it and the interactions between the characters are believable; I also like the writing style of Ms Morgan's - so it's 4 stars for that side of the book - which makes it 3 stars overall for the story:)
And if you can overlook the suddenness and abruptness of the solution to the murder, it's a very entertaining listen with a bit of humour in it.

Narration by Ms Waters is good, although at times a bit monotonous in narrative parts, but she does various voices well so it makes it easy to distinguish the individual characters. The pace of her reading is also OK, not too fast but not too slow, either. All in all, it's a good interpretation of the story.

Short and Sweet

Cute short intro mystery. Good book to get a feel for the series.
A little too short to have in depth character development but you can still get a feel for the characters.
I would listen to the rest of the series.
Narration is a little slow. I increased the listening speed and it was better after that.

I was given this review copy and this is my honest review.

Cute and Cozy

Sick of Murder is a fun short listen by Amelia Morgan. The story is original and has some very unexpected twists, Robin Waters did a great job bringing them to life with her voice and expressions. I loved the imagery in the book. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator in the future.

A spell for every occassion

Meg is looking after her sick fiancé and going about her day to day business when her neighbour is murdered. As her fiancé is the head detective in town she'll have to solve the crime herself!

Oh did I mention she’s a witch.....

Luckily for Meg it’s easy to solve a crime when she has a spell for everything, see through walls, talk to the dead, listen to private phone calls. I enjoyed the story, even if it is a little silly but its a quick fun listen.

Please note, I did receive a free copy of this book in return for an unbiased review.
