Charms & Chocolate Chips Audio Review

three-half-stars

Between brewing magically spiced treats at Honeybee Bakery and volunteering with a local conservation group, Katie Lightfoot barely has time to see her firefighter boyfriend, Declan McCarthy, much less delve further into her destiny as a witch. But avoiding her fate won't be as easy as whipping up a new recipe-especially when Katie finds herself once again mixed up in murder.When a fellow volunteer for the conservation group is found dead, Katie's mystical senses tell her that there's more to the death than meets the eye. Her suspicions are confirmed when members of her coven are targeted next. Katie will have to embrace her powers quickly... or she may find herself chewed up and spit out by some serious black magic.

This series is always such a fun listen for me as I have come to hear the narrator as just how I would think Katie would sound. We get into this one with all the fun we are used to by seeing Katie once again enjoying life working at the Honeybee Bakery and trying to get time to learn more about what she is and further her relationship with Declan. Katie has started spending some of her time at volunteering at Georgia Wild which is a nonprofit environmental group and she soon makes a new friend. I have to say I was shocked that with all that Katie has going on I was surprised she even had time to do anything extra. As we get further into the story though we soon realize that there may have been a reason behind why she was spending time at this place. Katie son meets a new friend working there and when she turns up dead of course Katie wants to know what happened to her.

As we continue on we see that Katie’s friend may not have been the only target in trouble. Katie soon starts to get help from some unlikely sources and we finally even get a visit from her mom that I think was one of my favorite parts of the book. I would love to see their relationship explored more and see where it is takes us. I have to say the one thing I didn’t like about this one was Declan. I like him as a person but I just feel like he doesn’t work for me as he just doesn’t get who Katie is. I hate that I feel like she is always trying to defend herself and her life to him and he makes her feel that way. We eventually get to seen who was behind this murder but I feel like this book was more about Katie and less about the mystery and I liked it that way. I was way more invested in learning more about who she was becoming and how she would handle it all. Overall another great series that I only enjoy on audio. I love this narrator and the way she makes these characters seem so real to me.
