When Zara & her daughter move to a new town, they run into quite a few surprises, not the least of which is the sudden awakening of Zara’s magic on her daughter’s 16th birthday. Soon after, they find themselves drawn into a mystery and discover/reconnect with a long lost aunt that they weren’t aware lived in town. Zara’s aunt is also a witch, though she had discovered her own gifts at a young age, and is now trying to rapidly teach Zara and Zoey about magic (though as of yet Zoey doesn’t seem to have any powers of her own.) Then there are the interesting neighbors and a whole other cast of characters in the small town of Wisteria.
Rather than reading this book, I listened to the audiobook version as I was walking. It was a nice, lighthearted little cozy mystery that kept me quite entertained for a few days. I expect that had I been reading it, it would have been a quick read, but that doesn’t take away from the fun of the story.
The narrator did a very good job of making sure that each voice was distinct enough that there was no confusion between which character was speaking at any point, and also managed to convey quite a bit of personality into each character’s distinct voices. I enjoyed listening to her portraying each of the various personalities.
If you enjoy listening to a nice, lighthearted cozy mystery that has been read by an entertaining narrator, then you should enjoy this audiobook. And if you prefer to read the physical book or kindle edition, I expect that you would find it just as entertaining.
