Summary

Life in a small town can be tough. It can be even tougher when you're a witch whose magic regularly backfires. But Summer Thorne only wants one thing: to create the perfect sanctuary for unwanted animals. Nothing and no one is going to stop her. Not even the sexy sheriff who is determined to shut down her rescue center. And certainly not the laboratory where she illegally obtained her mischievous chimpanzee, Morty.  

Sheriff Cooper Carlyle has one goal: to keep his town safe. That includes his stubborn neighbor, Summer, whether she wants him to or not. When the animals of Summer's menagerie get loose and create havoc, he decides enough is enough. But things aren't always as they appear, and Coop stumbles upon the secret the Thorne sisters have been hiding. 

Coop and Summer discover Morty holds the key to unlock a 20-year-old mystery surrounding the death of Summer's mother. Now Coop is faced with breaking the law he is sworn to uphold in order to protect Summer and her beloved pet from a threat more dangerous than any of them imagined.

Contains mature themes.

hmmmmm

I don't know how to begin with....
I nearly stopped listening half way through as it got pretty boring. The hardcore erotic language didn't help much. I m far from prude but this was a little o.t.t.
Unfortunately for the presentation wasn't the greatest. The voice was monoton and the switch between female and male was rediculous. I've listened to many books where this is happening but in this case here it put me off.
As 8ve paid for this I finished it off and I am glad I did. Three quarters through it finally got interesting and I now want to know how it goes on.
please don't take my review as a reason for not getting this book. it s my opinion. others have a different one....

refreshing change

I bought this on kindle and had the option to buy audio too. This is a nice change from my usual authors. I loved the first book and had purchased Autumn and Winter Magic on kindle too. It is a shame no audio for them yet but I will buy when they come out

Can’t wait for the next in the series!

Loved listening to this book at 1.25 speed. All the snark of the characters comes to life! Though this is not the typical genre I read, by the end of the book I became totally involved with the story line, characters and the humor throughout. Looking forward to more of this story!

Could have been

Great story line but it was rushed. Every chapter had either cooper pushing summer away because she did magic or following after her and confessing his undying love. Then there are the multiple twists after half a chapter. I mean how many plot twists can one book have in 3 chapters. It was a great storyline just needs to be polished and refined.

Meh

Where do I start? The Male lead is an idiot, he's useless, vindictive and mean. The female lead is after a guy who always treats her like crap. Since she was young. Over and over being disappointed in him for the constant rejection. Even her family encouraged her to go back to him because he "loves her ". I am so disappointed in this book. the romance was sooo boring and I just wanted the Female character to just find a new guy. This book lack romance and the guy didn't even have to fight for her. The Male lead was a weak pathetic coward that should have been an extra. She apologized for his mistakes and was always searching him out. I will not continue with the series because I didn't want read more about pathetic characters.

Summer Magic by T M Cromer

Summer Magic by T M Cromer
1st book in The Thorne Witches series. Contemporary paranormal romance.

The sisters are outed as witches in the small town of Leiper’s Fork. Sheriff Cooper is not happy and orders them gone! It doesn’t matter that he’s been denying his love for Summer since the age of 5. But there is a mystery behind the pet sanctuary that forces Summer and Coop to work together. His eyes are soon opened to the good the sisters do for the community.

Not dark spell casting, caldron stirring witches, more on the light side. Think Bewitched with a twitch of a nose and instant transporting from one location to another. I’m told books 2 - 4 are a bit darker.
Humorous points throughout. I laughed out loud at the scene with the talking squirrels threatening the baby elephant.

Twists at the end were surprisingly intriguing and made me check to make sure I had the second book on my bookshelf.

I alternated between a paperback copy and an audiobook. The narrator, Abby Craden, did a great job with voice variations and sneezes.

narrator was pretty good. But, overall the story line was does she want me do I want her no yes no yes. cannot even be considered a cozy light read.

Just okay for me.

Well, if you want ANY questions answered you’ll have to move on to the next book, and probably the next one after that. The ONLY thing left at the end of this story was a HEA. Anything else to make you understand the book will come in Autumn Magic, maybe. Which I don’t intend to read. Coop and Summer were too on-again-off-again too much for me. The magic was fun but the story just wasn’t there.

One reviewer on Amazon said this was geared for teenagers but, umm, no. There was sex in this, and the F-bomb was used 53 times. WTH are teenagers reading nowadays, according to that reviewer? So glad my kids are grown.

As to the narration: Abby Craden did an okay job with this book. I don’t usually like her because her male voices are just bad. But she’s settled that down now.
