New Twist on a Familiar Creature

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend it to someone who likes stories about witches and werewolves and magic, yes. It's not the kind of genre I usually listen to but I ended up liking the idea of it well enough that I might listen to the next one in the series if it's available. Also the main character is really sweet and smart and sometimes funny. It's a fantasy story, but with people who are like real people.

What did you like best about this story?

I like the idea of what kind of creature Elle and her boyfriend actually are. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but to me it was a new idea. I liked it. I also liked the tenderness of the big love/sex scene. It was sexy but it was really about how the main character felt, not just body parts moving around. Lastly, it takes place in Scotland so there's Scottish accents and that was fun.

What does Francesca Townes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

There's a lot of scenes where characters do a lot of talking back and forth and this narrator made that come alive like plot and story rather than just talking. This is the third one of this narrator's books I've reviewed. I like her a lot. I enjoy how she does characters, even men.

What a nice concept

This story is so much more than your average witch story. A nice concept for a new series. The narrator did an excellent job of distinguish between the characters. I highly recommend this audiobook. I'm anxiously waiting for the next installment.

Bad Accents ruin the Storyline

Would you try another book written by Eve Paludan and Stuart Sharp or narrated by Francesca Townes?

no. Considering the book is set in Scotland, you would think the narrator would be able to do a decent Scottish accent of some sort. Woefully irritatingly rubbish and ruins the listening

Would you recommend Witchy Business to your friends? Why or why not?

I would say go and red something else

How did the narrator detract from the book?

massively!

Could you see Witchy Business being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

Hopefully someone with a decent Scottish accent

Any additional comments?

pretty weak story line
