    Witch You WellThe Westwick WitchesBy: Colleen CrossNarrated by: Petrea BurchardThis is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.This is a fun story, but a good mystery. It has witches, a hot sheriff, grumpy witches, a hot sheriff, fun dialogue, a crazy witch trying to burn everything down, and a lot of silliness. It is a fun book but at the same time a good mystery that kept me guessing as to who and how they did it. Did I say a hot sheriff? Just checking. The narrator was fantastic! Couldn't have a better voice for this book. Just right for these witches and the chaos that was in this book and she did it perfectly. She even performed the hot sheriff just right. Great book!!!

    Audio Book Review I really enjoyed this. It has laughs and troubles and fun, witches trying to live normal lives? Not if Aunt P has anything to do with it. Cantankerous & troublesome but well meaning. Everything comes together nicely and this tale is the product of it. A good storyline padded out with really good characters. I’m looking forward to learning more about them. Hoping Hazel pops up more, I think she’ll be a good 1 to follow! Narrator was good kept the story flowing and the ups & downs as things happened were great. An all round good audio

    Cendrine West lives in a sleepy little town called Westwick Corners, her family are busy preparing for the grand opening off the family Inn and the upcoming wedding of Cen and her soon to be husband the Mayor when they stumble (literally) across a dead body. Desperate to cover the family secret, Cen takes it upon herself to help new hunky sheriff Tyler Gates and make sure her Aunt Pearl isn’t charged with murder.Cen is descendent from a family of  powerful witches but she herself doesn’t use witchcraft. She’s bought the local paper and is determined to have as normal a life as possible. Cen is possibly the only one in her family who has her head screwed on, especially compared to Aunt Pearl. Aunt Pearl is a bit wacky and partial to setting things on fire.The characters are brought to life in Witch You Well and the narrator has done an incredibly good job of using different voices for each character. The one that stood out was Aunt Pearl and I could just imagine her as I was reading. The story itself was a lot of fun, yes there is a murder but there are a lot of laugh out loud moments as Cen investigates and tries to keep her Aunt out of trouble. Cen also has her own personal troubles to deal with and the arrival of hunky new sheriff Tyler Gates sets her heart racing. Witch You Well is the first book in the Westwick Witches series and I have to say I’m really looking forward to reading/listening to more of this series. There’s nothing better than a fun cosy mystery when you’ve had your head stuck in books full of grizzly murders and gore and Witch You well was just the treat I needed.

    Witchy Little Cozy Mystery Romance! Excellent narration with a little romance in the mix. This doesn't quite make it as a romance, but there is enough there, so I'm going to count it!This is #1 in the Westwick Witches Series, and the only one in audio format.The witchcraft of this story has a very Bewitched style to it, especially with crazy relatives popping to and throw causing mischief all the time.♥ Story ♥Cendrine is a witch who has recently acquired the somewhat defunct local newspaper of her small little town that sounds like it is on the outskirts of the Seattle, Wa area, or at least on that end of Washington state. The town is trying to rebrand itself in an effort to attract tourist. Her family owns the local inn/restaurant/bar and it's days away from its grand opening. So when the famous travel writer they were counting on to help promote the place ends up dead, things take a detour on the hot mess train!Cen's problems get even worse because her infuriating Aunt Pearl keeps setting things on fire and taunting the new sexy sheriff Tyler Gates who is completely oblivious to fact that magic exists. Oh, and did I mention Cen is engaged to the town's Mayor and due to get married in less than a month.Cen has to use her amateur sleuthing skills to prove her family's innocence without letting it slip to the world that they are witches. While doing this she also has to juggle helping her mom keep the grand opening on track, keep her aunt out of trouble, and decide if marrying her high school sweet heart is what she really wants. So, easy, right?♥ Author ♥This is my first read-listen by Colleen Cross. It's a Cozy Mystery, and very true to the sub-genre. No excessive cursing, sex, or violence. There were a lot of nice twists to the story for a very pleasant mystery read.♥ Narrator(s) ♥Petrea Burchard did the narration, and this is the only title listed under her name @ Audible. Given how expressive the narration was, I would wonder if this is the author herself with a pen name for audio. The level of detail the narrator has is as if the they wrote it, if not, you could of fooled me. I mean that in the bests of ways!♥Overall it was a good read but sometimes I felt like I was missing some pages, or a book. It did not read like book one of a series. There were references to curses and grudges as if they were from a past book or series. I could not find any other titles that this could be a spin off from, or any short works that could have been the precursor works.Besides that, it was crafty, witchy read.Ebook obtained through ScribdAudiobook obtained for free at my request and I am voluntarily leaving this unbiased reviewMore Reviews @

    Witch You Well: Colleen CrossThis is a cozy mystery with a supernatural twist. Crazy family, strange guests and a new lawman to keep everyone in line. There were more humorous moments, suspense, hidden secrets and a dash of romance to keep most listeners entertained.The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Petrea Burchard made this a fun listen.I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    I listened to this on audible. The story overall was quite entertaining. However, as the main characters were witches, I would have liked a little more magic. It all seemed a little too secretive. Initially, it took me a while to enjoy the narration, as Cendrine had rather a lazy way of speaking. I soon realised that the narrator was rather clever in her use of her voice to give each character a rather distinct way of speaking and the main character soon grew on me.

    Cendrine “Cen” West lives in a small town called Westwick Corners. She is descendant from a powerful line of witches, but she doesn't practice that much. She is in the process of marrying the mayor and having the grand reopening of her Inn. Life is good... until the day of her grand reopening sees a billionaire murdered and all clues pointing to her Aunt Pearl. It's up to Cen to try to figure out who the murderer is, while trying to keep her Aunt Pearl from antagonising the new Sheriff, Tyler, and getting thrown in jail for murder. This was a fun read. I liked the characters but thought the mystery left a lot to be desired!! I'm sorry, but who leaves the murder weapon in a bin, in their room?? There were a few elements like this that had me rolling my eyes and thinking, seriously, you couldn't find a better way to handle that!!! The mystery of who murdered him was also kind of glaringly obvious. I wanted a little more subtlety, a lot more mystery!! I also didn't particularly like the fact that Cen fell for Tyler so quick.Other than that, it's a fun read. The characters are all well written, I liked Aunt Pearl a lot!! We get the typical cozy mystery feel to the book and it was easy to read. It's a book that I call a mindless read, and I don't mean that in a bad way! By "mindless read" I mean a book that I can read and not have to concentrate on too much or put a lot of effort into to. In all, this was an easy read with some flaws. Petrea Burchard was ok. She was clear and has a pleasant tone suitable for this type of book, but I found she didn't have enough cadences or tones for the different characters to really bring the story to life. She could have portrayed Pearl a lot.... nuttier ;) Lol. I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

    Unfortunately the mystery was horrible. Even a child would know you don't leave a large, bloody murder weapon in the trash can of your hotel room so the cleaning person would find it. Of course your finger prints are on it also. Duh! There were several other plot turns that didn't seem to make sense. The story had potential but it derailed off the tracks.

    It wasn't bad. I just wasn't into the story & I had to convince myself to finish it too many times.

    Review originally published at: belongs to a family of witches. It is not something publicly discussed in the little town of Westwick, but not entirely a secret either. Cendrine is attending her wedding rehearsal at her family’s inn, when they find a corpse at the gazebo where the wedding was going to take place. There is a new sheriff in town, but finding the murderer will be much easier by using some magic, so Cendrine will be doing some sleuthing with the help of some of her family members.I was looking forward to this book. Urban fantasy and cozy mystery together is something that we do not see everyday, and it is a great combination for a pick me up, at least for me. This story has great and charismatic characters, like aunt Pearl. I really liked this character and the situations she created. There were some hilarious moments that made my day.Although Cendrine is the main character in the book, there was something missing that made her distinguishable. I think it was a good idea to have aunt Pearl and other characters as sidekicks to make the story work in a better way.It is not a long book, just under six hours, and the story kept my attention from beginning to end. This makes it ideal for lazy days or when someone doesn’t feel like committing to a longer or deeper book. It was a light, easy, and relaxing listen.Petrea Burchard did a very good job narrating this book. Checking audible I only see this title narrated by her, and I have to say that she did extremely well. The audio production was good, and her voice range and interpretation skills were impressive. I just found Cendrine’s interpretation a bit on the dull side, but this matches my perception of Cendrine’s personality, so it could have been intended. I think some parts required a more lively narration, but this is just my personal opinion.I really enjoyed this book, and I think it would delight both urban fantasy and cozy mystery fans. I am looking forward to the sequel.I received a copy of this book in audio format from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Witch You Well - Westwick Witches 1In A Nutshell:A new witchy tale featuring Cen, who does not want to be a witch. And Cen has fallen out of love suddenly weeks before her wedding. The wedding is cancelled too late for one guest. The billionaire turns up dead, leaving Cen's aunt, Pearl in the frame for murder.It is an easy, fluffy read. One you will forget or hope too in days. There are a few niggling things. The characters are too disparate and the scope of the book also broad. It covers witches in England, and America and none are sufficiently fleshed out. And I am so bored of blondes. It tried for a sophisticated motive for murder using a puerile plot. And I do not understand the need for Aunt Pearl's alter ego. Then the book ended so abruptly. A disappointing ending, tight editing needed but there is the glimmer of a good idea peaking throughConnect with me on Twitter and FB See all my reviewsCheck out my blog on imjussayinBook RatingSexual Content: ULanguage: UViolent: UWould I read the next one or reread?: Not in any rush!My rating system (* = star)0* Could not finish this book (waste of time)1* Finished the book but didn't like it.2* Finished the book it was okay.3* A good read worth your time.4* An excellent read often with a novel concept or unusual plot.5* A great read.

    I've enjoyed several books about witches lately, each with its own universe, generally keeping non-witches in the dark about their existence but otherwise each handling magic slightly differently. Spells and magic wands play their part here as well as the (mistaken?) notion that using witchcraft is somehow cheating.Our complacent heroine is blithely preparing for the pre-rehearsal rehearsal of her wedding, at which the groom is notably absent, but the body on which she and her aunt trip and fall is not. Somehow her aunt has been set up as the fall gal for the crime, but our plucky Cen is actually fairly observant and a huge fan of Forensic Files so her clue gathering is meaningful and when she shares her findings with the new police chief he actually takes her seriously and thanks her.This story is well put together, the characters are fun, the narrator (yes, lucky me, I was enjoying the audible which I requested and am voluntarily reviewing) did a marvelous job of vocalizing the distinctive personalities, adding to my enjoyment. This is the first in a series and I am very much looking forward to the next!

    The rest of the family witches are batty, but Cen mostly has her head on straight, except where her self-involved old-friend-turned-politician/fiance and the new sheriff are concerned. The cozy mystery is excellent and the verbal and situational humor is nonstop. The publisher's blurb gives hints, and there is no need for spoilers or a recap. So stay away from hot beverages to avoid the coffee snurfles and escape to Westwick Corners! Petrea Burchard does a marvelous laid back narration with clear character delineation. I requested and received a free copy through AudioBookBOOM and this is my honest opinion.

    I'm very surprised that this book has received any appraisal at all. Perhaps most people decided to dump the book and stop reading once the inconsistencies got outrageously out of hand. I myself pushed through the MANY blatant hypocrisies, simply to gwaff at the fact this is a published book. I apologize for being rude, but I was let down more and more as I read. The story itself is quaint and cute. I was hoping for a much more exciting "supernatural" tale. The characters and plot held much more promise then what was delivered. The book itself was a complete contradiction the whole way through.

    This is my review of the audiobook:This was a cute and amusing magical mystery. Cendrine and her Aunt Pearl were great characters. Cen's ghostly grandma and Tyler the new sheriff were my favorite side characters. A few of the scenes or events were a bit too far-fetched (leaving the possible murder weapon behind in an evidence bag, after the body has been taken away; leaving the other possible murder weapon in a hotel room garbage can). But overall, I found the story to be entertaining and fun. I liked seeing Cen's confidence in herself and her magic grow over the weekend, and I look forward to learning more about her in the continuation of this series. I also enjoyed the performance of the narrator, who was especially good at showing the frustration Cen and Aunt Pearl felt with each other.

    Witches, ghosts and vortices.I gave this book 3stars. It was easy enough to read but I found the story deliberately more convoluted than it needed to be. I therefore found myself getting slightly irritated which was a pity. I have to say that I get a bit fed up with characters who have power never taking the responsibility to learn how to use it or control it. Too many writers seem to be using this ploy in their plots.So I can say that it is an OK read but not brilliant.

    Audiobook review: Witch You Well involves witches running a bed and breakfast and a guest being murdered on their grounds. One of the proprietors is a leading suspect and is known for her mischievousness, subterfuge, and deceitfulness. I found the story funny and interesting. Ms. Burchard, the narrator, did a good job.I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and voluntarily left this review.

    . I found this quirky tale of witches in a small town very enjoyable. It had all the fundamentals to make a good mystery, throw in magic and a dysfunctional family, you have a good mystery with lots of humour.

    Good readIt was a pretty good book. Great story line I did not like Aunt Pearl though. She drove me crazy. I found myself wanting to skip sections with her.
