Amy Boyles has crafted a new series with well developed characters that quickly grow on you. Angela Dawe, as always does a fine job of bringing it all to life. If you're a fan of cozy paranormal mysteries you won't want to miss this one.

What did you like most about Scared Witchless?
The narrator did a very good job of voicing the parts, even the male ones, and expressing the emotional state of the main character.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The plot contains the common theme of a young person being awakened to her/his exceptional abilities, but is combined with several mysteries. The manner in which the heroine develops her abilities I found a bit thin. The use of humour throughout the story allows one to be reminded that the story is not to be taken too seriously.
The chic-lit model of the heroine being turned on by an alpha male, with her attendant emotional responses left this septuagenarian male cold. In addition, the (admittedly occasional) use of southern USA slang I found annoying, but it probably works for the book's intended audience.
Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe – was your favourite?
The heroine, whose name I have already forgotten.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No. I doubt that I will listen to it again.
Any additional comments?
I'm of two minds as to whether I will get the second novel when it comes out. The heroine and her sisters are still in mortal danger, and it would be interesting to follow their story. But I cringe at having to endure more of the sickly chic-lit "romance" stuff, which is more animal attraction (a.k.a. lust), than real relationship development. I hope the author improves markedly on this aspect of her writing.
