Give me a story about witches, put some love inside and top it all with a dose of mystery and I am hooked. That’s a success recipe for me (I can think of a few other “ingredients” but don’t apply for this story at the moment).
“Lobster Cove” series starts pretty good. We have a witch trying to settle into her new home, plan for future and fall in love. But who would have thought that she and her new partner would both harbor secrets. The relationship between Pepper and Lathen is intense and their connection is very well captured. The hero in him starts acting once Pepper’s legacy is in danger. Let’s see if they manage to combine their abilities and solve the conflict J
Normally, I would be more than happy to brag about the magic and all that. However, I feel that in case of “A Witch’s Journey” the accent was more on the romance than on the actual magic. Yes, the plot is around that, but I would have wanted more action and more danger. There are many elements thrown in there, but not linked well enough and angles that could have been better explored.
The narration was excellent. Kate Tyler’s talent at disguising her voice and put feelings in all the lines made me enjoy the book even more. I liked her voice and, most importantly, I liked the fact that I could know, from the tone of her voice, who was talking. He is a great narrator indeed!
All in all, I’m giving the story 3.5 stars, rounded to 4, for a great narration. The book is great for fans of love and witches, but from action point of view, there is a potential that is yet to be explored. Looking forward for the next books. Enjoy J
