If I hadn’t seen this book advertised on audible when I was scrolling through new releases, I would have probably never heard of it, or picked it up, which would have been unfortunately. Lucy March managed to create a contemporary paranormal romance, without using the whole “mated theme” that seems to show up in the vast majority of PNR’s nowadays (not that I don’t like that theme, it just gets a bit old at times). Anyways, the story is about Olivia, a waitress at CCB’s a diner in New York State and follows her adventures as she discovers that she is a “magical.” Without giving any more details away, I have to say that the evil individual is the book was probably one of the most compelling i’ve read about in a while. If you are a fan of Molly Harper, I would recommend you check out Lucy March, I know I will be in the future. I would give this a 4/5 for the story
When looking at narrators of audiobooks, there are certain people I look for. One of them is Amanda Ronconi. I originally came across her when I listed to Molly Harper’s Naked Werewolf series and enjoyed her narration, so when I saw that she was narrating this new book I was willing to give it a try and she didn’t disappoint. All the various characters were so clearly narrated with different voices that I thought I was listening to at least 2 different people. She even has the ability to do decent male voices, which isn’t always easy (and conversely, the same can be said about men doing female voices…). On a scale of 1-5, I would give the narration a solid 4 – which overall gives the book a 4/5 and i’ll def. be both reading more by Lucy March and listening to more narrations by Ronconi in the future.
