Publisher's Summary

Hadley Hunter has lived a normal life, in a normal suburb, with a normal job and a normal father. All that changes when a grandmother she didn’t even know existed dies and leaves her a fabulous lighthouse on Moonstone Bay Island.

Hadley, ready for an adventure, decides to check things out and finds herself plunged into a world she never envisioned.

From the naked woman swimming in the ocean outside her back door to the hot sheriff who seems to be hiding a secret, Hadley is intrigued from the start. That’s before magical things start happening - including to Hadley - and a body washes up on the beach.

It seems Moonstone Bay has a killer on the loose...and he may be stalking Hadley, although no one can figure out why.

Things are about to spiral for Moonstone Bay’s newest reluctant - and baffled - witch. She has to learn about the past, investigate the present, and hold on to her future for dear life. Along the way, she will meet a bevy of new friends who have a few particular abilities...and a lot of really odd quirks.

Set sail for adventure, because once you visit Moonstone Bay, you’ll never be the same again.

Narrator almost ruined it for me

Unfortunately, the narrator almost ruined it for me. She sounded like a petulant child. The story was good enough for me to overlook the narration.

Hard to like

I found it hard to like any of the characters in this book, frankly. And the whiny voice of the protagonist actually spoiled any bit of enjoyment I may have had for the book.

needs to be edited

I think this story could be good but, it needs to be edited and it needs a new performer. I listen to it for a while hoping things would get better but it didn't and I could not finish it. it needs a new voice and a better edit. Too many words that we're not needed. it seems they were put in to fill space, a good story does not need "filler words". and I wasn't happy with the performance either. I think she's crying too hard to sound interesting. I just couldn't finish this book

For Hadley uprooting her whole life and learning n

Witchin’ USA by Amanda M. Lee and Narrated by: Angel Clark was such an awesome book. I loved being able to listen to it while doing my chores or just other things around the house. It was a really great read. I loved all the characters in it and the way the scenery was described in the book made me actually believe I was there with Hadley.

The Main Character:
The main character in this book is named Hadley Hunter who just moved to Moonstone Bay Island, Florida because of an inheritance from her grandmother May Potter. Hadley is the main character because of the fact that she is the main first point of view character telling the whole story. She is a pretty relatable character in my mind with how she is dealing with discovering a whole family is still alive on her mom’s side that she wants to get to know. Of course by going to this island she is finding a lot of things out that she wishes she never did.

The things that I like about Hadley is that she doesn’t fall for some of the things that the islanders tell her throughout the story even though she should really believe them about some of the stuff that she is being told. Another thing that I like is that she doesn’t put up with either Booker or Gavin’s flirting with her all that much. She takes what she learns in stride and either believes them or thinks that they are all losing their minds.

The things that I dislike about her is the fact that she doesn’t think that her father could do no wrong when it came to raising her and letting her decide what she needed to know. I also dislike that she comes up with the most ridiculous things about what might have happened between her and Gavin.

The Who I think is the Love Interest
I’m only saying this title like this because I’m not technically sure. Even though all cozies go with the love interest being a cop it makes sense with who her love interest is. Granted this is the first book and we shouldn’t assume. I like to assume though and make predictions about stuff like this. Plus with the way they acted in the book it definitely seems to be that Gavin is Hadley’s love interest. It’s also a bit hard to do this part in any book review.

What I liked about him is the fact that he knows that he is hot and uses it even though Hadley isn’t really affected by his charms all the time. He is always there for her when she doesn’t really think of him coming to rescue her. He is also very considerate of her feelings and with how much she can handle about learning the truth about the island.
The thing that I don’t like about him is that he is overly confident in himself in the areas of being sexually appealing to a girl. The other thing I didn’t like about him is he laughs about some of the things that Hadley says when she is trying to be either serious or not to get to overloaded by some of the things that the town has given her to think about it.

The Villain
I can’t exactly say who the villain is since that will be a total spoiler. Instead I can give you a list of who I think the villain was when I was listening to it. They are Mark Santiago, Sarah Santiago, Wesley Potter, Ned who is a family lawyer for Hadley’s grandma, and Booker a guy who is basically the Jack of all trades for the island.

The Narrator
Angel Clark is the narrator for this book and I have to say she had me laughing throughout the whole book. She is very talented reading out loud on audible. I loved the different voices she was using for the girls and guys that Hadley met. Even Hadley’s voice at times was pretty funny. I loved that with Ms. Clark reading I felt like I was transported to where the book took place and was experiencing all of it with Hadley. It was pretty cool but also pretty terrifying at some points.

Five Stars
Witchin’ USA by Amanda M. Lee and Narrated by Angel Clark was such a great read. Well really a great listen to book. It took me a bit longer to do this book since it was over 10 hours of listening to. I am still giving this book five stars since it was so worth it. I had no clue who was the villain of this book at all until Hadley discovered who it was. I have to say that it definitely kept me entertained and thinking about this book even though I was supposed to be doing another book. I will so totally recommend this book to anyone that loves a cozy witch mystery books. Witchin’ USA is that good.

Anyways until the next time enjoy this review brought to you by

I really wanted to enjoy this book

So the plot was almost non existent as the main character was too busy whining about ......okay everything. I have seen reviews that say it was the narrator, I think that she read the book brilliantly as it was written. The book was whiny. For every forty pages of whining you got a little snip of story line to maybe keep moving along.

Oh and as for all the female characters, you cannot call men sexist whilst referring to each other as sluts and whores. Where do you think they learned to disrespect you?

I think a 12 year old girl would find this book entertaining, but I fear how it would influence her.

A story about normalizing sexual harassment.

If you're into the normalization of cops sexually harassing the citizens they're supposed to be protecting, this is the book for you! What the author seems to consider "romance" is ruining what would otherwise be a great story. (Well, except that I also easily figured out who did it and their motive by, like, page 2!)

Good narration awful story

Honestly this doesn't work on so many levels - a woman moves to an island to take up residence in a lighthouse left to her by a grandmother she didn't know she had, is told that her grandmother was murdered by a serial killer (but only after coming across another of the killer's victims on the beach by the lighthouse), the alcoholism is a popular feature of island life, the locals are conspiring to keep her in the dark about pretty much everything on the island, the sherif drugs her into unconsciousness, and gets into bed with her... and she not only remains on the island, but carries on interacting with the shrerif as if he hadn't done something that would be absolutely unforgivable to any reasonable person, and his attitude of unrelenting condescension was nothing to object to... So, so many levels or wrongness.

On the whole, not really a book I'd recommend to anyone.

A brilliant new book from the wonderfully talented Amanda M. Lee. I do hope this is a new series. It was very different from her other series and my imagination can only speculate on the unlimited places this series could go! I can't wait for book 2.🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗
