Summary

Hannah Hickok is at a crossroads in her life. She’s single, out of a job, and living in an apartment she absolutely hates in a suburb of Detroit. All that changes when she receives a registered letter and finds out she’s inherited a performance town.

Casper Creek is located in Kentucky, on top of a small mountain, and is fashioned after notorious towns from the old west. Workers dress up, man the saloon, and put on a variety of performances several times a day. A city girl, Hannah is out of her element. She’s determined to give it a shot, though.

Cooper Wyatt is head of security at Casper Creek and the last thing he wants to do is break in a new owner...especially one who has no idea about the paranormal world she’s about to be immersed in. You see, Casper Creek is home to a variety of individuals, including two covens of witches who enjoy doing battle.

Hannah is barely in town when a body drops and a mystery unfolds. The workers at Casper Creek have more on their minds than performances. Unfortunately for them, Hannah is about to find out their big secret. Even worse, she’s about to find out she comes from a long line of witches...and magic is in her genes.

Casper Creek is full of colorful people. They’re all going to have to come together if they want to fight pure evil. Will they manage it in time? It’s almost high noon and the magic fight is about to begin.

I love Amanda Lee a.k.a. Lily Harper Hart, but...

...I don't think she wrote this. Some of her recent works have been a little subpar, but this one takes the cake. It's like she finally got a thesaurus but can't figure out how to use it. Time after time, she uses words or phrases that are similar to what she clearly means to say but are inappropriate for the context. Common metaphors are worded strangely making them meaningless. Example: "...turned ON her tail and ran". Huh? That really paints a weird picture. I think she meant that the character turned quickly and ran, but that's not how the expression goes and kind of makes it not make sense.

I think it should be noted that the plot, and many of its particulars, are pretty much identical as Witchin' USA.

I decided not to continue with her Moonstone Bay series because there was a little of these types of mistakes in the first book. I couldn't finish Bat Out of Spell for the same reason. Comparing her these recent stories to the Winchesters, the Mystic Caravan, and the Grimlock books, I'm truly wondering if she indeed did write this one or the other bad ones I've mentioned. It's hard for me to believe this book came from the same place as Only the Lonely.

One of the only good things I have to say about this recording is that at least it wasn't narrated by Angel Clark. Though if it had been, I could have saved my time and money because I wouldn't have even considered purchasing it.

TRITE

the concept wasn't awful but too much time spent on the "setup " for the story and the mystery itself was bland and stale in comparison to the half dozen other stories I've "read" this month. Save your credits for almost anything by Molly Harper, or the DFZ series by Aarons, this one isn't a keeper... sorry!

rushed

more awkward budding romance than mystery. the heroine was difficult to like, I don't know if it was the way the book was read, if the writer meant for her to come off as an annoying a-typical millennial or just the lack of character depth all around, but this character definitely would have no female friends if she were a real person, and her male "friends" would be sparse also. won't be reading/listening to any further books with this character.

Hannah Hickok and Casper Creek.....

Hannah is moving on from a terrible relationship with her exboyfriend and away from her hometown in Michigan. All the way to Kentucky where a whole new world is opened to her. This is the beginning of the mystery.. you have to get the other books to find out what happens.... open ended endings aren't for everyone

Amazing Performance

Heather Masters does a fantastic job with the narration of this book. It's a style I'm not used to for her, but She pulled it off brilliantly. I also really enjoyed her characterizations especially her depiction of the grandmother, Abigail. I also enjoyed the story, even though as usual for book one of a series, it left me wanting more!

Does Not Disappoint!

Lily Harper Hart has created another great character and a town I can't wait to learn more about. I am looking forward to more books in the series and getting to watch how Hannah's powers grow and manifest as well as getting to see more of the paranormal world developed beyond witches and psychics and ghost whisperers.

Another great story from Lilly Harper Hart

Lily harper Hart has done it again. if your into supernatural costs this is definitely a must read. Really enjoyed the book and looking forward to the next in the series. it seems like the head of security security and Hannaford are mentioned to be. looking forward to discovering what powers Hannaford has and seeing the relationship develop.

Glad I tried it

I was a bit reluctant to try this since my only other attempt at an audible book didn't hold my attention. This author was new to me also. This was such an interesting story and the narrator was so good that I was hooked to the point of purchasing another audible before finishing this one. The characters in the story are very believable and the plot had enough turns to keep me wondering. Nicely done.
