Witch, Love, Time travel, Adorable story!

Timely Love
The Goode Witch Matchmaker, Book 1
By: Cate Lawley
Narrated by: Sonja Field
This was such a cute story about a witch that plays matchmaker. The witch has a very short part. The main story is the couple. It is a time travel story, which normally I hate, but this is done so well that I really loved it. It is a short book but well worth the time. Lovely.
The narrator was perfect for this story!

About Time

I really was enjoying this book. Great characters, good reader, and then it stopped. That's why I only gave it a 4 . I felt light it was just getting interesting. How would all the changes go?

Great read and listen..



OK, that was a really delightful short read. No angst, no misunderstandings, no sex, just a great little love story. Aaaand, it WASN’T written in the first person, like 99% of all witchy stories are. And they usually have a terrible narrator, too. This narrator was really good.

This was about witch Glenda Goode who brought two people together through time. First Beth went back to 1899 and met Edward, several times, and then Edward came forward to 2016 to be with Beth. If you want to know if they stayed in her time or went back to his you’ll have to read the novella. I really wish this had been a full novel, it was that good.

HOWEVER, I won’t be listening to the next one in the series because Ghostly Love has 202 pages and the price has been raised to $7.49 and paying that much for 202 pages is never going to happen. Not when this one cost $1.99.

As to the narration: I’d never heard of Sonja Field before but she did a great job on the voices and the emotions. I would definitely listen to her again. She didn’t give Edward a deep voice but she gave him a really nice one.

Short but sincerely enjoyable.

Short but great. Enjoyable and, at moments, laugh loud. Not a lot of substance, but you care about the situation and the characters. I will certainly read or listen to the next. Easy read or listen, for sure!

Using math to matchmake?

Would you listen to Timely Love again? Why?

Yes, what is better than a paranormal love story?

What was one of the most memorable moments of Timely Love?

Enjoyed how the hero "appeared" in Beth's apartment.

What about Sonja Field’s performance did you like?

Loved how she changed accents. Her voice drew me into the story.

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

Yes.

Any additional comments?

I actually read this book first and enjoyed it so much that I wanted to listen to it too.

A fun surprise!

I didn't know if I'd like this but I loved the whimsy of it and the narration was fantastic! Going to listen to the rest of them.

Too Cute!!

Would you listen to Timely Love again? Why?

This was a fantastic quick listen.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Timely Love?

Not only did the narrator have a lovely voice, the story was cute and interesting. Great for a commute home from work.

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

I had not listed to Sonja Field before, however I will make sure I do again!! She was great!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved the part when Beth kept trying to convince herself Edward was a dream. It sounded just like something I would do.

Any additional comments?

I need to state that I did receive this ARC as a gift in return for an honest review. That being said, this is a wonderfully quick, but very interesting story!! I can't wait to see/hear what happens next!!

Cute story

This book has humor and a romance. It also has time travel and a witch. It was a comfortable short read.

loved it

This was short and sweet read and definitely a different take on magic nudging people to find love. lord knows these days some people can't find the one so going to another era might be the solution. It wasn't too heavy but it flowed and the characters fit into both worlds during the beginnings of the time travels to get to know each other *albeit not knowing what was happening*
