Acquired Audiobook By: I started to listen to audiobooks in [2016] as a way to offset my readings of print books whilst noting there was a rumour about how audiobooks could help curb chronic migraines as you are switching up how your reading rather than allowing only one format to be your bookish choice. As I found colouring and knitting agreeable companions to listening to audiobooks, I have embarked on a new chapter of my reading life where I spend time outside of print editions of the stories I love reading and exchange them for audio versions. Through hosting for the Audiobookworm I’ve expanded my knowledge of authors who are producing audio versions of their stories whilst finding podcasters who are sharing their bookish lives through pods (ie. AudioShelf and Talking Audiobooks; see my sidebar). Meanwhile, I am also curating my own wanderings in audio via my local library who uses Overdrive for their digital audiobook catalogue whilst making purchase requests for audio CDs. It is a wonderful new journey and one I enjoy sharing – I am hoping to expand the percentage of how many audios I listen to per year starting in 2018.

I received a complimentary audiobook copy of “The Wonkiest Witch” via Audiobookworm Promotions who is working with Jeannie Wycherley on this blog tour in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive compensation for my opinions or thoughts shared herein.

What inspired me to listen to this audiobook:

There are moments where I recognise that I read more dramatic stories than I do humourous ones. Typically though, I have sought out Speculative stories about witchy plots that tend to run the gambit of being more humourous than serious; I was hoping this might be of those kinds of stories, as I seriously do need a good punch of humour in my readerly life!

I also knew when I would listening to this, Audiobook Month would be underway and I wanted something a bit light & fun to listen too in order to get into the stories I had slated to listen to throughout June. I was recovering from those migraines of May and knew a fun-hearted comedy might just do the trick to give me a proper re-entry into listening to audiobooks and finding my traction within them.

The last time a witch gave me a tickle of joy to listen was when I was listening to the witchy adventures as conceived by Terry Maggert! I was hoping this particular series would not just re-instill the joy I had with Halfway Witchy but perhaps give me a Cosy series I could re-visit and re-appreciate throughout the installments as I came to meet them.

Narrator: Kim Bretton

Alfhild Daemonne has inherited an inn.
And a dead body.

Estranged from her witch mother, and having committed to little in her 30 years, Alf surprises herself when she decides to start a new life. She heads deep into the English countryside, intent on making a success of the once popular inn. However, discovering the murder throws her a curve ball. Especially when she suspects dark magick.

Additionally, a less than warm welcome from several locals persuades her that a variety of folk - of both the mortal and magickal persuasions - have it in for her. The dilapidated inn presents a huge challenge for Alf. Uncertain who to trust, she considers calling time on the venture.

Should she pack her bags and head back to London?

Don’t be daft.

Alf’s magickal powers may be as wonky as the inn, but she’s dead set on finding the murderer. Once a witch, always a witch - and this one is fighting back.

A clean and cozy witch mystery. Take the opportunity to immerse yourself in this fantastic new witch mystery series, from the author of the award-winning novel, Crone.

About Jeannie Wycherley

Jeannie Wycherley

Genre-hopping introvert and word witch living somewhere between the forest and the sea in East Devon, UK.

Jeannie finds inspiration everywhere: in myths, stories and songs, while people watching, a word here, a look there. However, her main inspiration comes from the landscape. Devon has it all - a rocky coastline, pebble and sandy beaches, narrow winding lanes and picture perfect cottages, steep cliffs and an abundance of forest.

A good day for Jeannie means a blustery wind, racing waves and salty rain. She lives with her husband and two dogs, makes a lot of soup, plays too many computer games and loves watching movies.

my review of the wonkiest witch:

It is quite hard to keep your composure as your listening to this story, as despite the somberness of attending a funeral at the beginning of this tale, it doesn’t take long for the sarcasm to begin! Especially when Alfhild Daemonne begins to describe her personal style and the choices she makes with her wardrobe! Most women will readily warm to her quirky way of expressing her feelings and thoughts about everything from the colour palette of choice to the fact her clothes hug her figure a bit more than they had when she was younger. On top of which, despite this being a gathering of witches to lay to rest one of their own, it was Alfhild who brought the cheekiness to the program! Complete with casting aside the fact she no longer felt this was part of her ‘life’ per se but rather a blink of a blib on the map of where her journey once had taken her as all the witchy bits felt rather ‘put to bed’ in the past.

It was here where we find the contrast between her and her late mother’s legacies – how people viewed her mother as a giving woman who loved to help people in need. She, on the other hand, had a completely different perspective on her mother’s affairs but of course, she might be bias being her daughter rather than her coven. She was still very much defensive about loving to bake with the normality of ingredients one might expect off the Great British Bake-Off show – wherein, you had a feeling her Mum would have preferred her interests to lie more towards eye of newt! The longer she spoke on behalf of her relationship with her mother, the more you understood why there was a wedge dredged between them! Ironic or not, the way she defends her preference for wearing black (ie. by eye colour or cloth) is quite hilarious – which is only one of the passages which gives you a hearty gigglement of joy to listen too!

Rather cleverly, there is a secret combination of books in the Occult section of a bookshoppe to get you into the alleyway where the witches of this world love to roost and shop for their witchy needs! I liked how Wycherley made this sound like an alternative to the shoppes you’d find in Hogsmeade. The way Alfhild discloses this part of her life, you had a feeling she was feeling constricted by the requirements needed to put her mother to rest. Once the funeral was over, she couldn’t just resume her life from where it was put on pause – mostly because of Penelope Quidwell! She was her Mum’s solicitor who came round to talk to Alfhild about the estate she needed to settle before she could consider the account closed. You had to give her credit – she kept her truer thoughts and feelings at bay from those she interacted with directly, but when it came to listening to the those thoughts in-step with her conversations gave you a wicked good volley of humour! She didn’t mind being blunt if it gave her a way to get her points across and that was what makes her such a winning character, truly!

There are subtle bits and bobbles of magic enveloping through the background of the story – such as the way Penelope’s address claimed the card in Alfhild’s hand! A dash of smoke and a pinch of ink was all it took to give her a place to arrive. What she would find there once she did however was a bit of a alarm as she didn’t give her Mum much credit for having a complicated estate as the best she remembered she lived humbly without too many assets. Before she can get into those particulars though she had to find the solicitor’s office! Laughs. This set into motion a series of laughable moments where she thought she was destined to be coo-coo clocked to death!

When Penelope gets down to the specifics of her mother’s estate, it releases a willingness on her part to fondly recollect her father – the fact that she hadn’t seen him in a few decades notwithstanding, she was still very much attached to him. What she couldn’t have fathomed was the fact the entire estate was solely due to the fact her father had left her an inheritance she never suspected possible! It was here where we first find out how the Wonky Inn comes to become in possession of Alfhild’s new course in life. She felt this was the best news you could receive after the passage of her mother – until of course, she learnt the finer details of the state of the Inn itself. Quite the downer she felt, except to say Penelope had this way of revealling details piece mill to the brink you never really could tell – is the information on the level, and if so, how could all this be a legit inheritance for a daughter who never heard a wink of this property previously? And, even that wasn’t quite what Alfhild was expecting to hear her talk about as the Inn wasn’t quite the long and short of it either! By the time she exclaims her own shock, your on pins just to wait for her to arrive as who wouldn’t want to sort out this ‘inn’ she had inherited from parents who kept her in the dark about their ‘estate’?

Everything of course distresses Alfhild who finds even the most mundane aspects of life to be the quirks of disdain that seek to evaporate her last nerve! Until of course, she took her first look at the inn her father had left behind for her to take-over residence and ownership – as she pulled her eyes over the depressed property, there was something about it which stirred her curiosity. She immediately perked up – seeing how wonkified the building was on sight but also, how curiously restorable it could become as well. If you blinked you would have missed the insta-love affection Alfhild had for this property. She wouldn’t have given it two shakes of a thought prior to this day she first arrived but now that she has a chance to truly see it – she sees the potential of what it could be and that dear hearts, is what is making all the difference!

She was coming alive here – in ways she never had previously! She felt a kinship with this property – that was until she spied something rather off in the yard. She enquired with the estate agent Jason about what could be lingering outside to which he hadn’t a response which satisfied her curiosity which is why they both made their way downstairs. Of course, what is more maddening than inheriting something you never new existed is dealing with the ineptitude of an estate agent who doesn’t understand what all the keys go to on a key ring! You’d rightly would have thought she would have blown a gasket if he hadn’t found the right one in just the nick of time before her exasperation gave out!

She might have reconsidered her haste when she discovers what she does in the yard – its quite the stab at a person’s confidence about taking on new responsibilities! She tries to make her mark on this towne by staying in the village rather than opting to stay her first night at the inn. Considering things, it seemed like the sensible option to be had until of course she started to meet opposition to her plans as soon as day broke the following morning. It doesn’t take long for those who are against you to make their presence known but what was quite curious if only to me (though perhaps to Alfhild as well) was what was the rush on someone wanting to purchase the inn? What could be the draw? She herself observed it was quite in disrepair due to the disuse it has had over the years,… which made you wonder, what is it about this particular property would get someone in such a fit of jealousy over? For if he wasn’t jealous of her zest to bring life back into the inn, what could his motives be for offering to offload it?

By the time Gilchrist allows Alfhild back into the inn, she had finally sorted it out in her mind that she was still going to proceed with her plans despite the hiccups she was encountering to make a go of it a legit business endeavour. It hadn’t helped her confidence to find another viable business in the village but what nearly wrecked her sense of pride was when the crime was left at her doorstep. That felt a bit too personal even though this was the first time she’d been here, there was something amiss, I felt about how the circumstances surrounding it were pinning themselves to her inn right at the time she wanted to takeover ownership of it.

The villagers were kind-hearted enough, even pleasantly approachable – giving of their time and in the case of Rona, some were even willing to become new friends of Alfhild’s. It made her reconsider everything despite the concerns she felt overnight and perhaps, just perhaps she might have stumbled across the one place she could rebuild her life. Despite all those concerns and fears, she decides to buckle down and just get on with it! Yet, ooh my dear ghouls, dear hearts, does she make your laughter howl! The ways in which she is approaching restoration at the inn is just hilariously inspiring!

Millicent was the kind of character you hoped you’d encounter when your relocating somewhere new where everything feels like life is colliding into you at full speed! She had the right proper way of intoning the kind of inspiration and encouragement Alfhild needed to get her in the right frame of mind to carry-on with her plans. She kept stumbling due to the ominous overtures of the crime – nothing had become decided about it and thereby, nothing could become resolved. There were other things looming over her heart whilst she contemplated the kind of life she could have here – but it wasn’t til Millicent crossed her path where you could tell Alfhild felt truly at home here. Where she could find her feet and her rhythm to where this place wouldn’t feel cold but homey, the kind of place where you could be proud to feel a part of and therefore it would be ‘home’.

What endears you to Alfhild’s journey is how sincere she is making a new life for herself in this place – even if her magical abilities are questionable at best but evenso, she does what she can whenever she can to compensate for it. She sorts out whom she can trust and who are her best allies – for she is working against forces she could not have predicted would interfere with her goodwill. There was a moment where in the height of an uprising she was bringing against these forces where she reconsidered her options before realising there was only one future she would feel comfortable owning as her own. And, that felt like the greater purpose of this installment – of taking control of not just your own destiny but of embracing who you are and the inherent gifts that come with feeling proud of where you’ve come as well.

Sometimes you’re challenged past the point you feel you can overcome what blights onto your path – but as Alfhild found, if you dig deep, stay positive and align yourself with people who give of themselves for the greater good of everyone else – you find a strength you never had. Alfhild’s parents would be wicked proud of her efforts and of the courage she encountered the moment she realised that the power to change her own destiny lay inside the power she had within herself. And, that should be something all readers takeaway from this story – aside from the advice given how to defeat one’s enemies as truly that is one of the oldest pieces of wisdom I think more people ought to be reminded of as so much truth is held within how that is one of the most powerful tools we all have to use ourselves.

I can’t wait to find out what happens next!

And, bless Ms Wycherley for giving us this lovely jolt of humour! As even though the other half of Alfhild’s story is dramatically spun, its the humour which sticks with you; as without humour, what else do we have to bolster us against life’s adversities?

on the paranormally witchy styling of Jeannie Wycherley:

If you wanted to get a good view of Wycherley’s humour, the way she paints the life of Alfhild as a witch attempting to live amongst the rest of us as if there was nothing unique or different about her is a proper bang-up riot! She also shows her heart such as the scene where she gives a twenty spot to a witch down on her luck whilst taking the commuter rail. The dialogue is sharp and the quickstep pacing of the story being delivered is a treat for your ears (if your listening to the audiobook, such as I had been) – everything is running a bit on hyper-speed, as the lead character has this hyper personality that comes through quite clearly. It adds to her charm though, because she’s the kind of bold character you look forward to meeting and can’t wait to know further!

The hilarity is in high order- Wycherley has such a prime way of carving out a bang-on brilliant romp of humour, you can’t stop laughing before you run into the next snarky bout of humour arriving in your ears! She’s written a right smart emotionally raw and honest character who speaks her mind, says what she means and means what she thinks who has a way of warming your heart for her forwardness! The way she’s written this Cosy Mystery is a bit unsuspecting as it feels much more like a Women’s Fiction exploit in how to put your life together at an age where everyone expects you to have your druthers in order whilst at the same time, there is a case of mystery right in the midst of Alfhild putting her life back to rights!

The way she’s conceived of this neverending home repair property to rankle the patience of Alfhild is just part of the folly as once you get into the groove of the audiobook, you’ve already embraced her cheeky humour and the dramatic way she involves us into this witchy Cosy!

Quick, reliable and always professional.Kim has a reassuring, kind and expressive style.

I am appreciative of Ms Jess providing a cursory outline of how best to articulate my listening hours on behalf of this audiobook and the others I shall be blogging about or reviewing in future. I’ve modified the suggestions to what I felt were pertinent to respond too on my own behalf as well as keeping to the questions I felt were relevant to share.

Number of Times I’ve heard the Narrator(s):

This is the first time I’ve listened to the narration styling of Kim Bretton. I enjoyed listening to this audiobook whilst colouring inside one of my colouring books as it helps ease me into the story and gives me a wicked good foundation in which I can build on as the story evolves forward. One of the joys of colouring is also having a bit of art in my life whilst at the same time it is rather Zen. It gives me a way to unwind and relax whilst keeping the story clearly moving through my mind’s eye.

Regards to the Narrator’s Individual Character performances:

Alfhild: She has such a posh and crisp accent – very British and very likeable! She talks faster than the micro-machine guy (in those adverts, back in the ’80s?) and could take-over an auctioneer’s duties last minute, but what you love about her is her ability to be comfortably relaxed about sharing her living truths with an honest candor. She has a wicked good attitude about life and she handles things well considering she hasn’t had too many adversities afflict her life until recently.

Penelope: She came across as a woman who loved her job but one who didn’t quite give out all the details her clients would love to know rather instantly after their meetings had begun! She was a crafty dish of a woman, too! She had a way of making you think one thing about something she was discussing and then, out of the blue, twists the conversation onto a different vein of interest! I really liked her and hoped she might return again in the future, though she might have only been slated for this first installment.

Gilchrist: His voice reminded me of one of the detectives from the Kay Hunter series – even though that sounds odd, I know, as they were voiced by two different narrators! I think the familiarity of the voice has to do with the accent being used in his voicing. Gilchrist was an interesting bloke as he took to Alfhild straightaway – giving her a way to feel relieved that she could move into the inn and not let the case at hand hold her down for long.

Secondary characters:

Jason (estate agent): He had such a drawl about his manner of speech – not quite with disinterest but more matter-of-fact in the kind of laziness you wouldn’t expect him to have in his speech patterns.

Rona Marsh: She has this perky personality that really is almost ‘over the top’ but it’s how Bretton portrays her that makes you sit up and notice her within the context of the story! She’s a shop keeper, one of the new tenants of Alfhild and apparently one of the more outspoken residents!

Millicent: A curiously inquisitive woman who liked to judge Alfhild about her choice in not being witchy and to avoid the whole subject entirely. She definitely had the kind of voice that you can’t mistake for another one!

How the story sounded to me as it was being Read: (theatrical or narrative)

I had a rather difficult time not rolling with laughter throughout the whole story – thereby, I found it to be presented rather theatrically moreso than narrative!

Regards to Articulation & Performance of the story:

Ooh, my what is not to love about the way in which Ms Bretton performed this story? She has such a wicked knack for comedic timing and of showcasing *humour!* out of a paranormal story-line that I must say, as soon as I was consumed by the first hour of the story, I dearly didn’t want to extract myself from the series! Except to say, the audiobooks are not avail on Scribd – so I knew I’d have to wait til I could purchase more of them via

Notes on the Quality of Sound & the Background Ambiance:

Blessedly this is just you, the narrator and the wit and humour of the author! You truly feel mesmorised by how the story unfolds and it is quite an #unputdownable of a treat!

Preference after listening to re-Listen or pick up the book in Print?

Interestingly, the way I have felt attached to Ms Bretton’s narration, I am definitely going to be seeking out the rest of the series on audiobook! I can’t imagine another narrator for this series and in regards to reading the series in print and/or audiobook? It is definitely a charmer of a series in audio and I wouldn’t want to miss the chance to continue hearing it! I know I wouldn’t prefer to read this one in print as I would miss the joy of hearing how Ms Bretton has interpreted the rest of the series!

In closing, would I seek out another Kim Bretton audiobook?

Ooh, most definitely! I can’t imagine how I’ve missed hearing her voice previously and I would *love!* to find more stories she’s narrated that would interest me to listen, too! Of course, if she does the whole Wonky Inn series – that is something to look forward to in of itself!

    • Hallo, Hallo Lisa!!

      Ooh happy day, indeed! :) I am wicked thankful I thought to talk to you about this one today! Especially with #SpooktasticReads coming next month and if you’re like me, the spooky reads are best in the Autumn! I understand what you mean; how to tuck in all the lovelies we desire most to be reading *right now!* is the best juggling act we can do! lol I hope after you hear it, we’ll have loads to discuss! So happy I introduced this one to you!

      • I do have a couple of ‘spookier’ reads planned soon. We’re reading horror my IRL book club so Salem’s Lot is our book which I’ll be reading next month, and we’re reading some kind of paranormal shifter romance for our HEA Bookclub on reddit (that’s our Happily Ever Ever club where we read romantic fantasy books). :)

        • Hallo, Hallo again Lisa,

          Love seeing your notes and messages – either on my blog or in response to my visits on yours; I wish I could sort out how to use Reddit but the site is dearly confusing for me to understand. If there is a way to break it down easier, DM me sometime as I have attempted to participate on that site in the past but I just never sorted out ‘how’ it works; sad yet true! I think it is information overload – the site is massive and I feel like I am missing the codex to understand the ‘language’ and art of how it communicates with everyone.

          Of the two stories you’ve mentioned the “PNR shifter” perked my ears – do you know the name/title?
          I liked the sound of a romantic fantasy book club!

    • Hallo, Hallo Lou!!

      Yes, this is on Audible!! This is how I was able to listen to it myself – as most of the blog tours I host for Audiobookworm Promotions run through either Audible US or UK!! I love the interface as you know for Audible and it was wicked fantastic hearing this one through their app for Win10! Goodness, did I ever!! I had a roaring wicked good time last night and I couldn’t wait to share my review with everyone! When you find a narrator who has this way of connecting you to the story and fuses the voices of the characters in such a way as to bring them right to life in your ears, it becomes a story you want to JUMP for joy over to help get the word out!!

      Thrilled to bits this caught your eye!

      I know your one of my Cosy friends — hoping you’ll love Alfhild as much as I did!

  1. Jeannie Wycherley

    Thank you so much for this wonderful insightful and in depth review. You totally nailed Alf’s character and the intended warmth of the book. We appreciate the time and effort you’ve taken over this. Big loves from across the pond xxxx

    • Hallo, Hallo Ms Wycherley,

      Ooh, this warms my heart, truly! This was what I had hoped to share with my readers and the visitors who are following the blog tour! :) Such a burst of joy for me to listen too! The narrator you’ve selected truly brought out the depth and heart you put into the story!! I love when narrators connect with their characters and with the stories they are narrating! Even her capacity to show the dimensional differences in voices and accents; goodness! I was just quite literally blown away and it became a dearly loved #bookHUG for me!! Send loads of lovely hugs back to you from this side of the Pond!!!

      May this series continue to flourish as readers discover it and may Ms Bretton continue to carry us through Alfhild’s life!!
