What did I think about it?
A Good Collection of Cosy Mystery Stories
Danielle Garrett is a new-to-me author. I haven’t read her other cosy mystery series set in this magical world. However, my lack of knowledge didn’t diminish my enjoyment of these stories.
The characters Danielle created appealed to me.
Our protagonist, Anastasia – Ana to her friends – exhibited personality traits that I like. She’s intelligent, resilient, self-reliant and has oodles of gumption. The supporting cast in this story was a diverse group, showcasing lots of different characteristics. The only reason that this collection didn’t rate higher, was that I felt our protagonist didn’t actively solve the cases. I want my amateur sleuths to be on a par with an Agatha Christie creation. Sadly, I wasn’t impressed with the sleuthing skills in these cosies – clues and culprits landed easily in Ana’s lap, she was just in the right place at the right time!
I’ve only listened to one other audiobook narrated by Amanda Ronconi.
I really enjoyed the pace at which Amanda read these stories. The emotions and inflections she used for the different scenes felt natural and brought them to life. The voices she created for the various characters were different enough that I was never confused during the numerous conversations.
Witchy Weddings is a good audiobook.
I enjoyed putting my buds in and listening to the stories. Each one had a nice mix of humour, mystery, and a sprinkling of romance. Plus, there are no perilous cliffhangers and every crime is solved by the end of each story! WoopWoop!
