Fun, Quick Magical Christmas Adventure

At under two hours this is perfect for those car trips to visit family for the Christmas and New Years Holidays. There's no murder in this but it a fun mystery of discovering a possible Christmas grinch wreaking havoc on Wysteria. This is a clean, fun, snarky read and the narrator does a fantastic job as always.

Great Read

Critter Calamity: A Wisteria Witches Mysteries Christmas Short Story (Book 12.5) was another great read by Angela Pepper. It seems as though someone is trying to ruin Christmas. Two of the town's annual traditions have gone awry. Since the small town is full of supernaturals, it's going to be hard to figure out who is trying to ruin Christmas. I enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more by the author.

Nice short story for Christmas

Another good story about Wisteria. This Christmas short introduces an unexpected son and an unusual form for a previously introduced pet. There is the usual mayhem that always seems to surround Zara but no danger or murder.

CAPTIVATING SERIES, MAGICAL HOUSE AND ANIMALS

Mischief and mayhem, animals that talk back and a mystery to solve. I just love these imaginative characters and all they get up to. You can listen to these books over and over they are so entertaining and the narration is great. I recommend you start at book one purely for the joy of it and work your way through this magical series. Book shelf worthy.

Wintertime Wonder with Wyverns!

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for a free review.

First of all, if you have yet had the pleasure of listening to Wisteria Witches before you can jump in with no prior knowledge. Yes, wacky supernatural hijinks filled with humor, heart and hominess about - however the mystery is self contained and you can get a feel for the characters, the setting and some of the antics you can expect in Wisteria. There are of course spoilers for the first 12 books.


Longtime readers of the Wisteria Witches series are also in for a treat. A Short story set between books 12 and the upcoming 13th volume. It helps refresh on where everyone is and what the Riddle women has been through over the course of less than a year. The mystery is cute, low stakes and at times pretty funny. Angela Pepper always crafts an enjoyable tale. I only wish there were more - but that is the nature of short stories.

Tiffany Williams is always fantastic - here she jumps from character voice to character voice and brings our tale to life.

Great jumping on point or a short treat to hold you over for book 13.

A perfect Christmas' listening

Christmas in Wisteria is as crazy and fun as you could imagine and even more.

There are some strange happenings in town which are disturbing the traditional town's celebrations and Zara is determined to get to the bottom of them. Which proves to be a little more challenging than she thought as there are too many critters in her life :P

But while doing it she finds herself discovering some new interesting facts about one of her coven's members and sharing some rare bonding moments with her undead mom :)

A perfect listen for this time of the year... or for whenever you are in need of a good laugh.

As always Tiffany Williams' narration is perfect ♥

Entertaining

Cute short Christmas mystery involving the Wisteria Witches! The story can be enjoyed on its own or in story order. The characters are likable and entertaining. The narrator did a great job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene.
