Summary

A quintessential soccer mom. A motorcycle-riding wild child. With two sisters like that, she could have done without provoking the dark fae....

Alys Stevens is running out of familiar road. Approaching the same age as her mother’s death and muddling through a messy divorce, the 40-something home renovator has lost the control she so deeply craves. So when her siblings show up demanding a girls' night full of fun, the three brew up an ancient family cocktail...and accidentally unleash powerful magic.

Baffled as they all develop uncanny powers, Alys watches on in part horror, part glee as a satisfying sinkhole swallows her vexing ex-husband’s car. And poking around in her family’s mysterious tree for answers arouses the unwanted attention of dangerous werewolves.

Can the newest in a long line of witches refurbish her run-down destiny, or will fate tear her to shreds?

Witch Way After Forty is the charming first book in the Silver Sisters paranormal women’s fiction series. If you like endearing characters, clever mysteries, and hilarious surprises, then you’ll love Jennifer L. Hart’s heartwarming adventure.

Tension, romance and humour

Jennifer L. Hart was able to surprise me again and again with her books. I was looking forward to this book with great anticipation.
This book is refreshingly different in the PWF genre. You take turns following the three sisters Alys, Maeve and Sibby. Each of these three sisters is unique and I loved the details of each character. In particular, the author succeeded in showing the special relationship between the three - the friction as well as a deep bond between them.
After the three sisters consume a special cocktail, magical powers manifest in each sister. Here, too, Jennifer L. Hart shines with ingenuity - I particularly liked the way the new forces are triggered.
Such abilities do not go undetected and the three are quickly in danger. The storyline was exciting and the cliff hangers at the end of each chapter made it impossible for me to interrupt the book.
But there is not only an exciting plot; I also enjoyed the romance a lot. Alys love story is full of emotions and I could feel the tension between these two characters right from the start.
The audio book is narrated by Jacqueline Rendell. She knows how to increase the emotions and the tension and I especially loved the various accents, she used for some characters.
Overall a humorous book full of tension, that also deals with more serious topics. I am looking forward to read more about the three sisters.
Note: I received free copy of the audio book. I voluntarily listened and reviewed it.

Good but very familiar

I did enjoy listening to this book but some of the main themes are very much like a tv series that I have watched, you know 3 sisters come back togeather and end up with magical powers and the younger sister is falling for the bad guy.
That being said it is a very enjoyable book and has a plot all of it's own

Fabulous start to series

I loved this book, from start to finish it was thoroughly entertaining.
The beginning was hilarious and gave me high hopes for the rest, I was not disappointed, I listened pretty much non stop and can't wait for book 2.

I was lucky enough to receive a free review copy, in exchange for my honest review, which is what you see above, I really do recommend this book, particularly to ladies over 40 as I think we can empathise with the characters more than a 20 something would be able to.

Original story

I loved that this story was original there are many mid life witch stories going around but it was pleasant to see that this story was original in the way it was written. With great characters that you’ll love, a storyline that is easy to listen too this was an enjoyable story. Now to wait for the next book.
The narrator has done a fabulous job on this book.

Magic & Three Sisters

Jennifer L Hart has written a creative and entertaining story about three sisters who decide to celebrate with a girl's night out. They whip up an old family recipe and then imbibe it. The next day each sister discovers that they each have their own magical powers developing within themselves. This is just the beginning of the story. I recommend this book to others who enjoy unique and magical stories. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. Jacqueline Rendell's narration is great as her voice is expressive and adds to the story's entertainment. I was given a free copy of the audiobook and I have voluntarily left this review.

Three flawed sisters with magical powers and great start to the series

I really enjoyed this female centered tale of the three sisters, Alys, Maeve and Sibby. Jacqueline Rendell did a fantastic job narrating the story. The three sisters were orphaned young and raised by their eccentric hippie aunt in a small cabin in the woods. When Alys (who is now 49) decides she needs a divorce from her cheating lazy husband, the sisters celebrate in the cabin and drink an empowerment brew. The brew awakens their magical powers. Now they need to contend with powers they do not know how to use along with the rest of their everyday problems. The story includes what you’d expect from this genre - fighting, dangerous situations, paranormal creatures, evil masterminds, henchmen, loyal friends and family, tragic back stories, plot twists, mystical coincidences, snark, and laughs. It also includes witty dialogue, characters with depth, and an engaging storyline. Expect to laugh, to cry, to grit your teeth, to cringe, to shout, and to root for the sisters to harness their powers, find love, clean up some life messes, and defeat the bad guys. This is book one in a trilogy and while some minor subplots are resolved, there are still lots of unresolved, large and small, issues when the book ends. This was okay with me, I enjoyed the book enough to keep reading the next book in the series.

Cliche, juvenile and predictable

I only made it through this book out of my own commitment to finish what I start. The sexual elements and language were juvenile, the accents done by the reader were cringe worthy, and the characters were mediocre. I could see what was coming a mile away. All around poorly done.

Pretty good

I enjoyed this book for the most part and would recommend it to anyone except for a select few. The author tells us that the girl's aunt died of ovarian cancer, I have ovarian cancer. I would rather that the author say simply "cancer" instead of the specific type of cancer as a lot of cancers can now be treated as chronic diseases rather than death sentences. Those of us with life-threatening illnesses don't enjoy having our diseases used as plot points and tripping over them without warning.

A fun listen

As unexpected magical powers are unleashed, three sisters learn about their family history and the community they’re in.

I thoroughly enjoyed this fun story by Jennifer L. Hart. The characters are great and things are setup for what should be a great series.

Jacqueline Rendell did a great job with the narration. She tackled multiple voices as she brought the characters to life.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

I can’t wait for the next one!

I am a huge fan of PWF books and this one is a great addition without being too typical. It’s got well-built characters, and an exciting storyline that keeps you interested and wanting more.
I think the narrator did an excellent job considering how many different accents she had to pull off. Her Australian accent was passable. At times a little rough but that’s a tough one to pull off.
All in all I loved it and can’t wait for the next one to come out.

Great start to a new series

Jennifer L. Hart has crafted a great start to a new series. The characters are well created and immediately seem more like friends rather than characters you are reading about in a story. Jacqueline Randell, as always, gives an excellent performance as she brought it all together and gave it life. I highly recommend this book/audiobook to cozy mystery fans. I anxiously await the next to follow.
