Very entertaining and enjoyable cozy mystery

This was just a really fun listen. If you enjoy paranormal cozy mystery's this is a really good one and worth your time. It's very entertaining, engaging and enjoyable with a great storyline, a really good mystery and a unique cast of quirky characters.

When there is murder, mystery, magic and Witch's involved you know things are bound to get interesting as well as a bit strange.

Even though this is the first book in this series, it's a spin off from another series by the author so these characters are already established. That didn't really make a difference to me. I had no problem keeping track of the characters and their relationship to each other. I really enjoyed how well developed each character was. They all different ages with distinct personalities. Even a ghost and cat. They are not your typical "cookie cutter" type characters. Which just added to the overall enjoyment of the story.

Even though this is part of a series it can also be listened to as a standalone story. I do think I would have enjoyed this story even more if I had read the previous series. I also enjoyed this story and the characters enough that I will go back and read the previous series.

Has a killer returned to familiar ground? This is the mystery that Natalie, Cassie and Gillian need to solve before anyone else is murdered.

Hopefully the rest of the series will be available on Audible soon.

Brian Callanan did a fantastic job with the narration. Choosing a male narrator to do a book that has mostly female main characters is an interesting choice. But it turned out to be the perfect one. His narration pulls you right into the story from the start. Great character voices. All of them both male and female. Each character had a distinct voice. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Perfect tone and delivery for each of the different characters and situations. He brought the characters, their emotions and the story to life. Hopefully he will be narrating the rest of the series.
