Generally OK although a bit chaotic...
If you're already acquainted with the series, you'll probably like the book more than I did - for the first meeting with June and Oscar and the town of Whispering Falls it's a bit too chaotic. But it's still an entertaining listen, so give it a chance anyway:)
The "chaotic" part comes from the fact that there is more than just a murder investigation going on - we're thrown in the middle of life happening in Whispering Falls, with all its magical and non-magical citizens, the hustle and bustle of their everyday existence, and there's so much of it that a new reader/listener can find it hard to follow at first (I did, anyway). And although usually it doesn't bother me at all, as it adds reality to the story, this time I had a feeling that the "other stuff" takes precedence over the murder case... It turned out finally that all those little, seemingly redundant things were partaining to the investigation, but the impression of chaos remained... I also had a feeling that there's too little investigating and too much of June's intuition throughout the book - but as it's a paranormal "witchy" mystery, I can overlook that little imperfection:)
All that said, I have to say that it's an entertaining listen. Even though the book is not really very long there's a lot happening there, there are a few nice twists in the plotline and some very good suspects with plausible motifs to kill..
Narration by Ms Savage is very good; she does voices nicely and reads at a very good pace - neither too slow nor too fast. It's a very good interpretation of the book.

At my request, I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was very pleasantly surprised! A Charming Voodoo caught my interest right from the start and held it until the audio narration was over. I immediately went to search for the other books in the series. I kind of hate that I started reading with book 10. I missed, and skipped, way too much!
I went ahead and purchased books 11 and 12 in hopes of getting the same whimsically, magical, spooky, Fall-of-the-year vibe that I loved from this one.
These stories are so much fun and so satisfying. Going to start book 11 now. Just buy it! ☺️🎃🍂
