Would you try another book written by Eve Paludan and Stuart Sharp or narrated by Francesca Townes?

no. Considering the book is set in Scotland, you would think the narrator would be able to do a decent Scottish accent of some sort. Woefully irritatingly rubbish and ruins the listening

Would you recommend Witchy Business to your friends? Why or why not?

I would say go and red something else

How did the narrator detract from the book?

massively!

Could you see Witchy Business being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

Hopefully someone with a decent Scottish accent

Any additional comments?

pretty weak story line
