Publisher's Summary

Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he's never made a move. Every Saturday night, she gathers with her three best friends—Peach, Millie, and Stacy—and drinks the same margaritas while listening to the same old stories. Intent on shaking things up, she puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends... but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman who shows Olivia that there is more to her life than she ever dreamed.
As Liv’s latent magical powers come to the surface, she discovers that having an interesting life is maybe not all it’s cracked up to be. The dark side of someone else’s magic is taking over good people in town, and changing them into vessels of malevolence. Unwilling to cede her home to darkness, she battles the demons of her familial past and her magical present, with those she loves at her side - and in the cross fire. Can the most important things in life—friendship, love, magic, and waffles—get her through the worst that the universe can throw at her?

I really hope this turns into a series...

Would you consider the audio edition of A Little Night Magic to be better than the print version?

I prefer both... first time reading on my own but then having Amanda Ronconi breathe a new life into the story is great.


What was one of the most memorable moments of A Little Night Magic?

I love the Saturday night confessionals... reminds me of times with a group of my girlfriends who I do not see nearly enough anymore... will have to see up a Margarita night myself...


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

I loved her narration of Molly Harper's books so much I got this one just because she was the narrator. I found this story just as entertaining mainly because of Amanda Ronconi and the life she gives to the characters. Sometimes when a narrator does multiple voices for multiple characters it just doensn't quite work. Not so with Amanda Ronconi.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes... went straight thru it


Any additional comments?

If you like the Molly Harper books I believe you would be pleased with this author as well. Will have to try more books by this author. There was enough of funny to make me laugh, enough plot to keep me interested, and characters I enjoyed. It's a light romance (anyone up for a steamier book might want to look elsewhere) but the relationship works... where in other books I too often feel the relationship is rushed or forced. Not so with the book.

I've been reading so many in this genre that are typically Vampire or Were based... nice to see Magic take centerfold. Audible doesn't have any of these yet but if you liked this book or Molly Harpers might I suggest the Hex series by Linda Wisdom, Broken Heart Oklahoma series by Michele Bardsley, or Real Vampires Have Curves series (forgot the name) by Gerri Bartlett.

A fun listen...

I really think that Amanda Ronconi could make the phone book entertaining. I don't think the book would have been as fun to read on my own as it was to listen to her read to me. She really is fantastic and so very appropriate for this genre.

The story had a lot of potential and kept me entertained. Certain characters could have been developed more and the rules for magic in her world established better. The book seemed a bit rushed at times and I would have been happy to listen to a longer version with more details.

I didn't laugh aloud as often as I do with Molly Harper's books (yes, they are similar as other reviewers have stated), but I did laugh and chuckle and grin a lot. I would definitely read other material by Lucy March, especially if narrated by Ronconi.
