Now onto the real review. As such, many of the books feel unnecessary, introducing very thin plots whose mysteries feel all but irrelevant. It started out slow, it gained a bit of speed, but generally failed. Did I mention he is an asshat? I'm positive I don't like this book. Hate that she leaves him alone o I was always told to start any critique with something positive, so. I had just finished a paranormal investigation novel that was light on mystery and heavy on hunky spunky love machine, improbable, hate you on sight but am immediately attracted to you romance and a killer that I guessed within two minutes of being introduced.
However, we find out that a brother of Lyons killed those 2 and the boyfriend was actually the one that killed Fox! Then suddenly her life starts to change with a family that want to get to know her, including the ghost of her mum and powers that are beginning to show. However, the dialogue was trite. I really like to listen to books at work and while doing chores around the house. She uses her new skills in her sleuthing, with amusing results. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Hannah Platts is as good as such great narrators; Katherine Kellgren, Simon Vance, George Guidall, etc.
A great read I enjoyed it and think you will too. I like the basic storyline of a woman finding out she's a witch and having to meld that with her human life while keeping it a secret from her sister. So I will say it is a quirky fun supernaturalesque mystery with a really cool cat named Winky. This all takes place against a backdrop of our main character learning she's a witch and finding out how to cast spells. I do like the premise but I just can't get into it. Like to read some more by this author. Think I will continue in the series and see what happens next.
This book is filled with interesting characters, some you might like and others that make you angry. I plan on reading book two as soon as I am done listening to Christmas audible books. These books are being pedaled as mysteries, and they Take your average British sitcom and mix in the paranormal and you have this series. I found this was a light read that was quite funny at times. It was just a distraction. Jack Maxwell is mentioned a lot, Overall, an easy, fluff read. But it is not long before Lady Hardcastle is forced out of her self-imposed retirement.
I'm disappointed because I usually love kitschy, cute little mysteries. I didn't think I'd really want to listen to them as well but as they weren't to expensive I downloaded the first. Before Jill can give the case her proper attention, her mother dies. Each book also finds Jill dealing with a new personal and professional challenge, not to mention whatever new case has come her way. My favorite character ended up being Winky the cat because I felt he had more depth to his character than any of the others.
The characters were introduced and given one thing about their personalities and that was to sustain us the entire book. I'm too bored by the mediocre plot and irritated by the slapdash and hopelessly ungrammatical writing style to waste more time on trying to complete it. As a client asks her to look into the murder of his girlfriend, he mentioned that it is possible that their are two other murders connected to the murder of his girlfrien 4,25 stars - Free Ebook- I have dyslexia - That was the understatement of the decade. This is like Angela Lansbury crossed with Bewitched. بعد ذلك، في عيد ميلاد هاري الحادي عشر، اقتحم رجل عملاق ذو عيون بارزة يُدعى روبياس هاغريد المكان حاملًا بعض الأخبار المذهلة: هاري بوتر أصبح ساحرًا، وتم قبوله في مدرسة هوجورتس لفنون السحر والشعوذة.
He thinks it was a serial killer because there were 2 other women that died with animal last names Lyon and Lamb and his girlfriend was Fox. A nice break from more intense complex mysteries. Yes, the conversation is snarky, and there are a few characters whose primary purpose is to whine. Woven throughout is the foundation mystery of the series--who The Dark One is and why he's after her. V was your typical supporting character.
The rest of the characters were even less developed. I plan on reading book two as soon as I am done listening to Christmas audible books. The protagonist develops a romance with a police detective fairly early on, and that particular relationship eventually comes to dominate the plots of some of the earliest novels in the Witch P. The mystery element could be more thought out, but the characters and performance are so charming that I gave it a pass on that, and bought the next one as soon as I finished this. The year is 1908 and they've just moved from London to the country, hoping for a quiet life.
