Description

A little magic can go a long way - to really screwing up a girl's life!

Mara is having the worst month of her life. At least, that's what her cards tell her and they've never been wrong. She's evicted from her apartment, loses her job, and is banned from Beverly Hills. So when the tarot cards predict her imminent demise, she uses a little magic to make her world right.

Suddenly, an aunt she's never met dies, leaving Mara as her sole heir. But when Mara moves into her inherited home, she discovers Aunt Tillie never moved out. She's still one pissed-off old lady, even postmortem, and she blames Mara's magical meddling for her death.

When Mara accidentally releases a demon and awakens the spirit of the most powerful witch in history, Tillie's ready to kill her - literally. It's the only way she can think of to save the girl from herself. The witch and the demon, however, have other plans for Mara's body!

Lovely mystery with tons of laughs

Any additional comments?

This was a different kind of read for me. I totally enjoyed the twists and turns along with the laughs and smiles. There were a few areas that just about broke my heart but most were a total delight. Nothing is as it seems to be you can’t trust those you think you can and those you do trust you might now want to. You along with Mara will have to work out what it right, wrong and happening. When playing with magic one must be careful things maybe be given in a way that you do not want. There is always a price to pay for any wish that comes true.

Poor Mara has lost just about everything her job, her apartment and now her aunt that she has never known. Once she moves into her aunts home everything is off balance and nothing is as it seems. She has weird dreams that could be the death of her. There is evil around and she has to work it out before she ends up dead. Spirits are all-round some good some bad.

Ms. Rose as narrator was a delight with her many different character voices. You have no trouble knowing who is talking or what they are feeling. She gives the right tone to each emotion if the character laughs so does she which made it a wonderful listen you could really get into. I love the evil witch laugh which had me looking around. As I shopped I would laugh or chuckle everyone around me looked at me funny. There are no background noises or any place where the volume changes if a break was taken you cannot tell. Here male and female voices were a delight to listen to. She has a very smooth voice you have no trouble listening to for hours. I am looking forward to listening to more audios by her.

I loved Gus he was so funny making me laughs with his sarcastic way he really made the story so much fun. I really enjoyed the other characters each brings so much to the story. Aunt Tillie is a trip that you can never really get a handle on. I even enjoyed the evil ones. I adore the house and all it brings to the story. If you are looking for a book that has a little of everything you have found it. This is filled with magic, mystery, mayhem and tons of humor. It really was a very fun humorous listen that I totally enjoyed. The ending was great and could be the end but I do believe this is a series. It can be read as a standalone with an ending that leaves you wondering a few things but a good ending.

Witches, spirits, a toad, and more!

Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie She's Dead
Toad Witch Series, Book 1
By: Christiana Miller
Narrated by: Marie Rose
This is a great book about spirits, mostly evil, trying to come back using a human body. Other spirits help or don't care. Our witch goes through a lot but she has her best friend who is a witch too she can call on if necessary. Good fantasy, characters, plot and ends with a shock and it is a good ending. Enjoyed this odd witch story, odd in a good way!
The narrator was awesome! Great performance!

I sorta liked the story

It got kinda creepy although it ended ok. The narrator was great. She didn't just read or even overact

A fun read!

supernatural, suspense, witches, situational-humor, verbal-humor

On her 27th birthday, Mara is jobless, the tarot read is dismal, and she gets evicted. Her funny best friend Gus tries to help, but it isn't until she gets paperwork telling her that she has inherited a cottage in northern Wisconsin that she has hope. But things just get more scary and more complicated. There is scary stuff without horror, characters that certainly are, excellent imagery, and fun. A good read!
Marie Rose seems perfect as Mara, perky and able to project the feelings of the moment.

A 'bewitching' read:

Well done! This was a 'chance' I took (reading an author I hadn't read before), based upon the premise... and not only was I *not* disappointed... I was very happily surprised! I'll gladly add the rest of this author's titles - past and future- to my collection!

wonderfully wiccan

I love how the narrator used different voices/accents. I love the story, being mystical and special without being boring. I am now looking for book 2 ! :)

fun light reading

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It is definitely chick lit with ghosts and witches. It is a lot more fun than many of the books in the 'light reading' category. The characters and story are well written.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mara because she is a complete person with or without a man. She is independent. When she does get help it doesn't feel as though she had to be rescued.

Which scene was your favorite?

Fortunetelling for the spoiled rich in L.A. Or anything with that crazy landlady.

Who was the most memorable character of Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie She's Dead and why?

Gus steals the scenes he is in, but I think if he had gone head to head with the crazy landlady it might have been a toss up.

Any additional comments?

I'll check out the next book in the series.

Marie Rose Reads Great!

Auf welchen Platz würden Sie Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie She's Dead auf Ihrer Hörbuch-Bestenliste setzen?

Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie She's Dead surprised me with it's humour and its wirdness. Although the book won't appeal to bible-thumpers, witch-haters or those uptight people who would refuse sex from a ghost of a different race, for open-minded liberal folks - this book downright rules. For those who would kiss frogs and do an exorcisim in the backyard with their gay roommate this book redefines the witch story and pushes it to downright saucey extreme. I highly recommend this book to grownups everywhere!

Hat Ihnen Marie Rose an der Geschichte etwas vermittelt, was Sie vielleicht beim Selberlesen gar nicht bemerkt hätten?

Marie Rose read absolutely super. Her characters had the regional accents and the authenticity of mood that one rarely encounters. Whether it was Aunt Tillie with the Wisconsin "Rs" or JayJay being a cool dude at the dry goods store - everyone came alive, Marie's enterpritation made the characters very real and loveable even when they were the bad guys. Even when the text gets a little kinky, Marie rode through it like a champ adding the needed finesse to keep the story from becoming lewd or camp. Super!
