Congrats to Barbra for a fab story line - I have read this e-book but to hear it the narrator Any Rubinate has done a fabulous job in helping to tell the story. I'm always a little worried about picking the right narrator for a book I've already read, but this was a great choice. Thanks to Audible for publishing.... I've brought all three now to listen to. Well done all involved.

I really enjoyed listening to this story. This is the story of Stacy Justice, a reporter who begins to investigate the arson of her cousins bar. Finding out there is a body in the basement. Things start to get dangerous when someone starts targetting her and more bodies start to appear. I really enjoyed following her through her investigation as she tries to discover the truth. Cannot wait to continue in the series to find out what happens next to Stacy as she comes into her powers more. xxx
What did you love best about Opal Fire?
The story was very entertaining and I'm a sucker for a story that has an animal as part of the story (Stacy's pet dog). Not only was it comical in places, but it had a good mystery at the heart of the story. Her family provided several laugh out loud moments and added to the story. This was a cleverly written who-done-it, without getting bogged down in the details. It was a very easy listen and the narrator was very good. I look forward to the other two books in the series.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I really liked Stacy's character and her relationship with her dog and family. Even though she was a witch, that was not the main focus of the story. She is a very normal type of person who just happens to have magical abilities and a dysfunctional family.
Any additional comments?
If you are looking for a lighthearted, fun mystery with several quirky characters and a strong female lead character who is very likeable, then this is the story for you.

What did you like best about Opal Fire? What did you like least?
Here we have a supernatural mystery where the supernatural doesn't overwhelm the story. It gives the story a good grounding while having enough wonder at what the supernatural side of things will contribute.
On the downside the characters were a little two dimensional. There needs to be a bit more development there. The villain of the piece was a little obvious and could have been more of a surprise with a few more tweaks and less mustache twirling.
Would you be willing to try another book from Barbra Annino? Why or why not?
I've already picked up the next two in the series. I listen to a lot of audiobooks and am always looking for promising authors.
What does Amy Rubinate bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
A good narrator can make or break an audiobook. Additionally, the right narrator can really bring the characters to life. Amy R. does a good job here and I think can be safely added to the list of Narrators that I will gladly listen to.
