Summary

One corpse. Several bizarre looking attackers. Some very strange magical powers. And a severe bout of amnesia.

Madrona is not having a great week. It's going to be okay, though. All she has to do is find out who she really is, protect a soap star from being attacked by a stalker, and work out why so many people seem so afraid of her. Because surely she's a good person. Right?

Not, bad, but . . .

This book is lightweight and fun, and reasonable, and the narrator does have some talent. However, she also has a lisp, which meant that I spent a lot of time wondering why anyone would choose a narrator with an audible speech defect. She's good at doing character voices, and putting feeling into the story, but there is still a lisp. It's like hiring a ballet dancer with a limp. However good the performance, you're going to notice the limp and wonder about why this person was chosen to perform.

answer this question

What would you do if you woke up and found out you were a superhero who had just killed somebody ; but all your memories were gone. No ID, no money, no clue how you fit into the scheme of things. Would you act like a teenager and run out and start trying to save people? Or would you go someplace secret and conduct some research to determine your abilities and your liabilities before you made a move.

the answer to that question will determine whether you enjoy this book because this heroine has to go a mediately get a cape and go save a cat! only to find out she has enemies. Sorry, I could not stick this one out.

How NOT to end a book...


I liked these characters. They were well written and well rounded. The narrator did a good job. The pace of the book was good. Overall, the story was interesting but it was not a complete story. I understand what a book series is all about but each book should have a natural ending. You do not end a book with characters dead or dying in the street. You also do not introduce the villain with two or thee minutes (literally) remaining in your book.

Loved it

I love Helen Harper so very much. It took me a little while to reconcile that this wasn’t part of her Lazy Witch series lol (I knew it wasn’t but I was having withdrawals, and since it was the same cover artist a very small part of me hoped it was in the same world... so I didn’t read the blurb to stay blissfully ignorant), but once I accepted that, I really enjoyed it. Narrator was great. This book starts off with a bang, meanders into many a funny circumstance, and ends with it all coming together in a way I didn’t expect. Great characters. Hilarious as always. The ending wasn’t a full cliffhanger but ends in conflict.

Not Helen Harper’s finest

I’ve read & thoroughly enjoyed all the books in Helen Harper’s series: Blood Destiny, Highland Magic & The Lazy Girls Guide to Magic. Her books are well written & a lot of fun.
“Box of Frogs” has me scratching my head. Three hours into it & I have no clue what it’s about & so far there is nothing about it that makes me want to continue. The writing as well as the narration is stilted & awkward. The narrator attempts at an accent are unsuccessful, she sounds like she has a mouth full of marbles. I’m definitely NOT enjoying myself.
I’m still an avid Helen Harper fan & hope that “Box of Frogs” is a one off.

Villain or Heroine

Villain or heroine is the question that as a reader you are asking throughout most of this book; sadly it ends in a cliffhanger and you still don't know the answer. This would be fine if they had the next book available but they don't and I don't know when they will. More of the books in the series are available in print so if I get desperate enough, I could actually physically 'read the book.' But as someone who listens while doing chores. Listening makes it much easier to consume my reading list.

abrupt cliffhanger ending

Good book overall. Lead is fun and keeps the plot moving forward always.

Ending is blah tho.

I don't regret reading the book but wish I had the next one in audio.
