Publisher's Summary

Rosie Strange doesn't believe in ghosts or witches or magic. It's no surprise therefore that when she inherits the ramshackle Essex Witch Museum, her first thought is to take the money and run.
Still, the museum exerts a curious pull over Rosie. There's the eccentric academic who bustles in to demand she help in a hunt for the bones of the notorious Ursula Cadence, a witch long since put to death. And there's curator Sam Stone, a man about whom Rosie can't decide if he's tiresomely annoying or extremely captivating.
Finding herself and Sam embroiled in a peculiar centuries-old mystery, Rosie quickly discovers that the secrets of the past come with their own real danger as a strange magic threatens to envelop them all.

A reasonable listen

It took me a while to make up my mind about this book. I wasn't keen on the narration although I got used to it.
Some parts were well researched where others didn't ring true. Like the church and priest involvement, witches were pagan, as well as the devilish/supernatural elements (the devil being a Christian construct). I will however, lookout for more books in this series if they are written with the hope that these aspects will improve and the dialogue for the main character, Rosie Strange, tightens up and makes her look less ignorant and silly.
One to watch with the makings of a good series of light listening, mildly creepy books.
