I have not read the Language of Spells but I'm looking forward to reading it soon. This was a short audiobook Novella that was light and easy to follow. The story kept me interested until the conclusion.
The narrator did a good job bringing the story to life.
If you like supernatural stories with a touch of magic you should give this book a try. It was laid back and a good introduction to this author's writing style. She doesn't spend a lot of time with descriptions of places and people. This book was straight forward and I found it engaging. If you have read her Language of Spells, you will probably enjoy learning about Iris.

This was a short and sweet story. A little magic but a lot of funny moments and truth bearing. The witch was really a herbalist but also was a member of a family with different talents. Her's was to discern the right thing to give or do for people. The narrator was good and made the story come alive. The story plot was interesting and I am glad that the HEA was included. Becca needed a break. John hung in there until she realized that she could tell him how she felt. I got this ARC via audiobook boom.

This follows two storylines, one concerning a town witch called Iris Harper, who is struggling with loneliness and age, and a young woman called Bex who is fired from her position as a nanny after she is accused of stealing. I much preferred Iris’s storyline and plot even though both felt rather light. It was entertaining but I felt like it ended abruptly.
I'd never read a book by Sarah Painter, but it's hard to resist her beautiful covers, so I offered to review this audiobook for Audiobook Boom. I don't know the author or the narrator, so this is an impartial review.
Iris Harper is a herbalist, but she is getting on in years and I felt for her struggle to get downstairs and answer the doorbell when it rang. She has quite a reputation, but I couldn't quite see how she was going to help when a young girl is wrongly accused of theft.
In fact, I thought she was unacceptably rude to Bex when she came asking for help, and Bex was surprisingly long suffering. In the end, the resolution revolved around a considerable coincidence, which always makes me cringe.
It was an enjoyable listen, if a bit twee; well narrated by Tracey Norman. But it was only a novella, so it was hard to get into the story or the characters, before it drew to its conclusion. For this reason I'd feel this book was better suited to those who had already read some of Sarah Painter's novels, as it would elaborate on some of the folk they had already met. For a first time reader it was too short and didn't make me feel I needed to read more.
