Publisher's Summary

It only takes a second for life to go to heck-in-a-hand-basket!   

In less than 24 hours, Pepper Dunn loses her job, her boyfriend, and her home. It's the worst day of her life. But when Pepper discovers she’s a witch and has inherited the most important store in the magical town of Magnolia Cove, Alabama, she’s as happy as a pig in mud.   

Too bad the shop is a familiar pet store, and Pepper doesn’t like animals - not even a teensy bit. Determined to sell the shop and get the heck out of town, Pepper’s plans go haywire when a local store owner winds up dead and Pepper gets accused of murder.   

Thrust into a magical mystery, Pepper teams up with a mysterious private detective and a cat so traumatized by the murder that she’s not talking - and that cat could hold the key to Pepper’s innocence.   

Now Pepper must avoid trouble, solve the mystery, and placate her new grandmother, who keeps a strict curfew that’s enforced by the talking end of her shotgun.   

Sounds like a simple day in the life - as if. Can Pepper solve the mystery, or will she become the next victim of the Magnolia Cove murderer? And most importantly, will Pepper learn to love the animals she’s in charge of?

Narrator doesn’t fit.

The narrator sounded like a grandmother reading the part of a young woman. The voice doesn’t fit the story.

Not the right narrator

First, the book itself is pretty good. I like the concept of though there were a few things that came across a little odd about being distant from the family. But as a first book in the series it is okay to leave a little mystery for the next books.

My real issue with this audio book is the narrator. this is a wonderful narrator who has a lot of range and does a good job with voice change but the main character of this book is supposed to be 25 years old and from the first word you know that this is an older woman performing. it makes it really difficult to listen to and remember how young the person is supposed to be. It just doesn't work. wonderful narrator just not appropriate for a 25 year old character as the main character

a great find

I just happen to come across this author. this book surprised me and was enjoyable to listen to.
it has some great humor through out the book.
even though the story began with a murder I am glad that the book still got to give you a feel of all the characters and I am now off to purchase the next installment to see how crazy her aunt's can be.

Formulaic

I listened to this last week and left my star review, now coming back to write a more thorough review except I can't remember much of the story so it's safe to say I won't be buy any more of this series.
