Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Hemlock Cove, where the town is magically rebranded - but real witches aren't necessarily welcome.

That makes things hard for the Winchester witches - including local newspaper reporter Bay. She's got a persnickety family - wait until you met Aunt Tillie - and a penchant for stumbling across trouble.

Thankfully for Bay, she's got loyal cousins and the ability to talk to ghosts as she tries to solve mysteries and put souls to rest.

Follow Bay as she meets a man who is more than he seems and tries to hide a history that is centuries in the making.

This is the first three books in the Wicked Witches of the Midwest cozy mystery series. It includes: Any Witch Way You Can, Every Witch Way But Wicked, and Witching You Were Here.

    Story
    "Light to the point of being empty"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    All of the main characters. They're one-dimensional petulant and narcissistic. There are plot holes. The writing keeps repeating words within a sentence or phrases within a paragraph.


    What was most disappointing about Amanda M. Lee’s story?

    It could have been light-hearted fun, but with no heart and no fun, it's light, with only faults to stand out.


    Do you think How Witch It Is needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It's clearly aimed at having a follow-on book, but I won't be bothering with it.


    Any additional comments?

    It would have got 2.5 for all categories, but I've divided it into two 2s and a 3.

    "Aunt Tilly strikes again"

    Love this series. The right balance of humour and intrigue to keep you interested till the end. Can't wait for the next book in the series!

    Story
    "Like woah."

    Loved the story but the narrator made everyone sound like an angsty teen. Like Jimmy Fallon's Sara character in his "Ew!" skits. I think the inflection was off? I love Aunt Tilly and would like to see the Moms fleshed out more. Just because you are over 50 doesn't mean your life is over! Hopefully I will get my wish in later books.

    "Is this YA?"

    Between the text and the narrator, it sounds like a bad YA novel, I couldn't stand it anymore after a couple of chapters.

    "Great box set"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this box set. It gave me the chance to hear three great books for the price of one. I had been considering buying Any Witch Way You Can,book one in The Witches of the Midwest series, when I saw this set. I enjoyed the originality Ms Lee showed in this series. Aris did an excellent job of bringing the characters to life. I highly recommend it.

    Story
    "Not worth it"
    What disappointed you about How Witch It Is?

    I could only get through the first book, the mystery was ridiculous. All they do to try to find the murderer is ask the ghosts, the plot is almost non-existant.


    Has How Witch It Is turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    There is no distinction between the voices you never know which character is talking.

    Story
    "Juvenile at best"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If it were not for some of the Mature Audience allusions I would think this book would be best appreciated by a 9 year old.


    What was most disappointing about Amanda M. Lee’s story?

    Her characters were extremely immature.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Aris?

    Yes


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The narrator did a good job of relaying the infantile emotions of the characters.

    "I Love these CRAZY WITCH Women!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to How Witch It Is the most enjoyable?

    I absolutely love the interplay between the characters. Their bickering and bantering back and forth makes me laugh out loud.


    Any additional comments?

    Someone made a comment in a review of the individual version of this first book in this series saying they hated the narrator. To each their own. I Love Aris. I can't imagine these characters sounding differently then they do today. I immediately know who is speaking as Aris changes voices. Please DON'T change narrators.

    Story
    "Great stories- but HORRIBLE performance"
    Would you listen to How Witch It Is again? Why?

    I love the stories of the Wicket Witches of the Midwest, but this is one of the worst narrators I've every had to suffer through.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Stories are slightly predictable, but characters are amusing and will quickly captivate you.


    What didn’t you like about Aris’s performance?

    Aris's performance was horrible. One phrase into the first book, she was mispronouncing basic words - distracting from the story. There is little to no distinction in performance or voice for Clove, Thistle and Bay - and she makes them all sound like constipated valley girls. Unsure if it is just her performance, or production as well, but there are awkward pauses and stops mid sentence that make it hard for you to really get into the stories. It is a shame that she was chosen to be the voice of these stories, as they deserve a much richer and more competent narration. At the very least, someone who knows how to pronounce "vehemently".
