Publisher's Summary

When the going gets tough....

Private investigator, Jill Gooder, has been hired to find a serial killer because, as usual, the police can't buy a clue. Jill, the not so proud owner of a crazy, one-eyed cat, probably can't expect too much help from her PA/Secretary, Mrs. V, who spends all day knitting.

And just in case all of that wasn't bad enough, Jill's just about to discover she's a witch.

...break out the custard creams.

    "Nice idea but 5 hours too long!"

    So I read the reviews and thought well nice idea lets try this one. Urgh - the writing is pedestrian to say the least and the 'story' such as it is drab. If our heroine says 'I must be crazy' - 'you must be crazy', 'they must be crazy' once more..............!!!!!!!! Okay so finding out your a witch on your mothers deathbed is a little odd but hey this is fantasy -you know the drill. To continue to believe that your mother called you a witch as an offensive term was a little stupid to say the least but finding out you are an actual witch doesn't make you 'crazy'. The introduction of serial killer plot was a little bizarre but if the heroine was a little more sympathetic it would have sat better.
    Perhaps a better editor is needed, but the writing sure does need tightening up.
    This is another narrator that believe women 'of a certain age' should have crackly, off key voices - never heard one myself but then what do I know - I'm only a woman 'of a certain age'.
    I am sorry that I can find no plus sides to this book - frankly I don't care how it began and, with another 3 hours to go - I definitely don't care how it ends

    "Fun light-weight listen. Superb narration!!!"

    Fun! A nice break from more intense complex mysteries. Suitable for listening when car pooling with children as there aren't any sex scenes or foul language. The narrator is absolutely superb!!! Hannah Platts is as good as such great narrators; Katherine Kellgren, Simon Vance, George Guidall, etc. With over 600 audible books owned, I truly appreciate a good narrator. They can make or break a book for me. She made this book come to life. I'm hopeful that she is at the beginning of her career and will continue to narrate more books (currently, she had only a few).

    "Interesting"

    Interesting theme. A P.A. that knits and apparently that's her true calling, a talking one-eyed, cheeky cat and a P.I./newby witch who is the main character.
    Add all these to the mix and stir well ... Now you have a sweet murder/mystery/witchy story. Quite entertaining.

    "Decent enough"

    A fun little romp. Light and clean. Tried to be a mystery and a paranormal, didn't do either especially well, but the pace and tone were fine, so was an enjoyable few hours.

    "Thrilled to have found this series!!!!"
    Would you listen to Witch Is When It All Began again? Why?

    Loved the narrator so much!! And the writing is brilliant!


    Have you listened to any of Hannah Platts’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Only saw one other book by this narrator which wasn't my style. It would be amazing if Hannah Platt narrated this entire series!!! I would buy each and every one!!!


    Any additional comments?

    MORE PLEASE!!!

    "A fun listen"

    A crazy one eyed cat...who talks!, a bran new witch just learning, a knitting nincompoop ( she drives me crazy) and a murder, no make that murders, makes this a fun book! I enjoyed listening to the reader, and although this is the start of a series Our detective got things done. I can see many things just bubbling on the edge awaiting development in the next book.

    "Fun story paired with the perfect narrator"
    Where does Witch Is When It All Began rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a great little story that has a lot of promise, magic and discovery. It ranks at the top because I can't wait to listen to book 2, the narration is FAB (and totally fits the character, story, and is simply delightful to listen to).

    "Wonderful book from a wonderful series"

    I absolutely love this series! The narrator isn't my favorite, but that's because I've read the book and no narrator is going to match the way I imagined it. The series is absolutely amazing! Seriously, it's one that I keep a constant look out for. I really do hope that they do audio versions of the rest of the books. I really like to listen to books at work and while doing chores around the house.

    "Lighthearted Paranormal Mystery"

    She's a PI, she's just become a witch, she has a talking cat, a sister she loves and squabbles with, and is more than a bit OCD- This was just the ticket for me to listen to while bedridden with a very nasty cold. It's lighthearted and charming, an easy listen. It reminds me most of Molly Harper's PNRs but with less romance, and of course, British - proper contemporary British, not some Heritage throwback. 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.

    "Fun!"

    Thoroughly enjoyed this. The magic is an added spice that doesn't take away from the mystery. It's light without being foolish. Will get the next one!
