Sample of Would-Be Witch audiobook
Reviewed by ML Simmons
I thought this would be a light-hearted and funny story. I did not find it as such. I found that most of the characters a little on the stupid side.
I thought that this book made everyone in the southern Texas town out to be morons. I thought Tammy Jo was weak for allowing her ex-husband to continue to control her life even after a divorce. Very much the Southern, small-minded stereotype at work throughout the entire story. The only characters that seemed to have any sense to them were Bryn and Lenox Lyons, who were from out-of-town. This heroine is probably one of the most ignorant characters I’ve ever read.
There is a difference between a heroine who seems to constantly get herself into trouble, but is still strong and smart. Rachel Morgan in the Hollows series is a great example. She constantly makes some decisions that are not always the best, and forced to choose between a bad decision and a worse decision.
In this book, Tammy Jo, just seems like a dumb character who can’t seem to get out of her way and has to turn to her cat to make decisions. You know, I talk to my animals, but I truly believe that this character expected the cat to make decisions for her.
Narration of Would-Be Witch
The narration for this book was okay and felt like it went well with the book. The narrator did make the character sound a little on the dumb side, but to me that fit really well with this character. I would be willing to try a different series with this narrator, but I really have no intention of continuing with this series.
