Summary

Hadley Hunter has lived a normal life, in a normal suburb, with a normal job and a normal father. All that changes when a grandmother she didn’t even know existed dies and leaves her a fabulous lighthouse on Moonstone Bay Island.

Hadley, ready for an adventure, decides to check things out and finds herself plunged into a world she never envisioned.

From the naked woman swimming in the ocean outside her back door to the hot sheriff who seems to be hiding a secret, Hadley is intrigued from the start. That’s before magical things start happening - including to Hadley - and a body washes up on the beach.

It seems Moonstone Bay has a killer on the loose...and he may be stalking Hadley, although no one can figure out why.

Things are about to spiral for Moonstone Bay’s newest reluctant - and baffled - witch. She has to learn about the past, investigate the present, and hold on to her future for dear life. Along the way, she will meet a bevy of new friends who have a few particular abilities...and a lot of really odd quirks.

Set sail for adventure, because once you visit Moonstone Bay, you’ll never be the same again.

Good narration awful story

Honestly this doesn't work on so many levels - a woman moves to an island to take up residence in a lighthouse left to her by a grandmother she didn't know she had, is told that her grandmother was murdered by a serial killer (but only after coming across another of the killer's victims on the beach by the lighthouse), the alcoholism is a popular feature of island life, the locals are conspiring to keep her in the dark about pretty much everything on the island, the sherif drugs her into unconsciousness, and gets into bed with her... and she not only remains on the island, but carries on interacting with the shrerif as if he hadn't done something that would be absolutely unforgivable to any reasonable person, and his attitude of unrelenting condescension was nothing to object to... So, so many levels or wrongness.

On the whole, not really a book I'd recommend to anyone.

A brilliant new book from the wonderfully talented Amanda M. Lee. I do hope this is a new series. It was very different from her other series and my imagination can only speculate on the unlimited places this series could go! I can't wait for book 2.🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

Not so cozy

This book looked interesting but I'm left disappointed. I guess it's more suited to young adults than to an old male like myself. I found the heroine too whiney for my liking. And, as a cozy mystery, it's too loaded with sex, thankfully not the graphic type. I'm afraid I'm going to return it - there's no way I would want to re-listen to it, or listen to any of its sequels.

Amazing

I love love love this book!.
This book has everything, humour, romance, murder and mystery.

the narration can get a little squeaky and the voice can get a little muddled but you can hear the emotions and really get into the story.

couldn't put this down and spent all day listening

Narrator almost ruined it for me

Unfortunately, the narrator almost ruined it for me. She sounded like a petulant child. The story was good enough for me to overlook the narration.

Beginning of a cute story

This would’ve been one of those books better read as the narrators voice is so full of inappropriate ups and downs at the wrong places it was distracting from the storyline.

Hard to like

I found it hard to like any of the characters in this book, frankly. And the whiny voice of the protagonist actually spoiled any bit of enjoyment I may have had for the book.

I really wanted to enjoy this book

So the plot was almost non existent as the main character was too busy whining about ......okay everything. I have seen reviews that say it was the narrator, I think that she read the book brilliantly as it was written. The book was whiny. For every forty pages of whining you got a little snip of story line to maybe keep moving along.

Oh and as for all the female characters, you cannot call men sexist whilst referring to each other as sluts and whores. Where do you think they learned to disrespect you?

I think a 12 year old girl would find this book entertaining, but I fear how it would influence her.

Juvenile

I wish I'd listened to this before the year was up. Juvenile, child-like narrator. Silly narration and boring plot. Pass.

A difficult lisen

I liked the story but I could enjoy because the reader was horrible. I don't think I will get another book that she is the reader.
