Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Rachel Hawkins, writing as Erin Sterling, casts a spell with a spine-tingling romance full of wishes, witches, and hexes gone wrong.

Nine years ago, Vivienne Jones nursed her broken heart like any young witch would: vodka, weepy music, bubble baths...and a curse on the horrible boyfriend. Sure, Vivi knows she shouldn’t use her magic this way, but with only an “orchard hayride” scented candle on hand, she isn’t worried it will cause him anything more than a bad hair day or two.

That is until Rhys Penhallow, descendent of the town’s ancestors, breaker of hearts, and annoyingly just as gorgeous as he always was, returns to Graves Glen, Georgia. What should be a quick trip to recharge the town’s ley lines and make an appearance at the annual fall festival turns disastrously wrong. With one calamity after another striking Rhys, Vivi realizes her silly little Ex Hex may not have been so harmless after all.

Suddenly, Graves Glen is under attack from murderous wind-up toys, a pissed-off ghost, and a talking cat with some interesting things to say. Vivi and Rhys have to ignore their off-the-charts chemistry to work together to save the town and find a way to break the breakup curse before it’s too late.

Good but the narrator wasn’t great

Loved the story but the narrator gave Vivian the most annoying lilt to her voice that made it really difficult to listen to the book, I would have given up if the story line weren’t so good. I find it very odd that Vivi’s voice had an almost Irish lift to the ends of sentences (I imagine this is to give her a bookish and naive sort of character) but Rhys, the Welshman who is literally described as having an accent, had no accent at all. Super weird and annoying. Other characters voices were good, not sure what happened with the leads.
As I said, the story was fantastic, loved everything about it and I’d still say it’s worth a listen despite the offensive narration.

Maybe the worst narrator I’ve ever heard

The story is fun. But, I have to say, it is really really hard to listen to. It’s like the narrator has absolutely no idea what words she’s reading. Her intonation is completely incongruous with the words she’s saying. It’s like every sentence is somehow a question….. I’d avoid the audiobook at all costs and get this one as a physical book to read. Spare yourself…. Its so bad.

Cute Halloween Read, Terrible Narration

This was a great read to put me in a Halloween mood! It was just spooky enough, although a bit predictable, but who doesn't appreciate a happy ending? The narration, however, ruined the experience. First, the leading man is from Wales (a big part of his character) and the narrator didn't do an accent. Huge mistake! Then, she sounded as if she were speaking through gritted teeth and every word was a question. Every sentence ended in an upward inflection, it was the strangest reading I've ever heard. Cute story, but do yourself a favor and skip the audio! Opt for reading it yourself instead.

A cute story but lackluster narration

The story was fun and cute. But what kept taking me out of the story was the narration. One of the main characters is Welsh and the narrator only occasionally did the accent. Most of his dialogue was done in an American accent which made all the British-isms very strange to hear.

Intolerable narration performance

So I only listened to the fist 6 or so chapters because the narrator was driving me insane! The intonation is so very very wrong. She reads like that auto voice on tiktok where the emphasis is off. It’s like she’s not even considering the words she’s reading, which makes the story so hard to follow. Also, it’s a bummer that the Welsh characters don’t have a Welsh accent. Aaaanyway, I switched to hardcooy and enjoyed the book/story itself.

The Perfect Autumn Read

The story takes place in a small town in the middle of Autumn. It was full of magic, romance, and familial love. It was a fantastic listen.

Charming and so enjoyable!

What a magical (pun intended) blend of humor, wit, mystery, and a little lightly steamy romance/sex! Just what I needed, and a perfect way to start October. I enjoyed the narrator, though I wish she had done a little more with the accents. Overall, a very fun, light listen on a rainy day. Looking forward to the continuation of this one...
