Publisher's Summary

Most witches don't work for police departments, but Michelle isn't your average witch. She's clanless, looking for a warlock who isn't offended by her lack of family connections, and in danger of losing her job if she can't find the eight escaped trolls before they start eating the local residents.

Trolls, angry police, and misbehaving spells are the least of her problems. Statues attacking homeowners might be problematic for your average witch, but to Michelle it's another day at the office. Her real concern is the wizard suddenly interested in dating her and an old elf set on pestering her. When her happy family is rocked by a long-kept secret, her stable life falls apart faster than she can pick up the pieces.

And she still hasn't found those trolls.

Soundbooth Theater has released a boxset to rekindle interest in the Witch's Path series with listeners! Don't miss this opportunity to nab more than 20 hours of adventure with Georgia's favorite magical sleuth for the price of one credit.

Jeff Hays has built a name for himself by creating immersive experiences, blurring the line between audiobooks and audio drama with distinct, convincing character voices, pristine recording, and special effects to add depth and dimension. In 2015, Jeff took a leap of faith with these three audiobooks. Though he was hesitant at first to narrate a series with a female lead in first person, N.E. Conneely insisted that he was the man for the job. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Jeff surprised even himself by convincingly embodying Michelle's grumpy, headstrong, sarcastic, and distinctly female demeanor. Listeners forgot there was a man behind the voice, and let Michelle guide them through all manner of magical mysteries.

separate reviews for all 3 books

Witch for Hire is book 1 in the Witch For Hire series by N. E. Conneely. I was actually quite surprised by all the twists and turns in this book. Michelle Oaks is a consultant to several Sheriff's departments in and around the Atlanta Georgia area. Michelle is also a witch, a Covenless witch at that. In this book the human and the magic world live and work together. Most of the police force is human so they call Michelle in on cases dealing with the magic world. The book features all the great characters from the magic and fantasy world, Witch's of course, trolls, mermaids, Demons, and more. In this book Michelle helps to save several beings from basically a Pound (kind of like a Dog Pound for other critters or beings), she also helps to save a mermaid, and more all the while looking for missing Troll's.


The book is also written in alternating chapters between Michelle's point of view and Elron's. I kind of didn't get why Elron is getting a staring roll just yet but I am sure his roll will become bigger in book 2.

I was very happy with N. E. Conneely's writing style. She did not take several chapters of the book up to introduce us to Michelle. Instead she jumped right in on the main plot and action all the while dropping tidbits here and there to introduce us to Michelle and the other characters along the way. I also liked that there was just enough description of people, places, and things to keep the story moving without bogging me down or boring me. This is a pretty fast moving book, something was always going on, I really liked that. I also like the fact that this books was based in an area I could identify with, I was raised outside of Atlanta and know all the towns mentioned int he story, I could even picture certain buildings in my mind. That really brought this story more to life for me. There is also a dose of humor added.

The narration of the audiobook was pretty good. The voices were great. I did have a bit of a problem with the male voices. They all sounded kind of tinny like on the telephone even when they were standing in front of her.


A Witch's Path is book 2 in N E Conneely's Witch For Hire series. the book picks up where book one A Witch For Hire leaves off.

Michelle Oaks is a covenless witch she is also a consultant to several Law Enforcement Agencies In the Atlanta Area of Georgia. In the series the Humans and the magic world live side by side. Lately some of the Magic world have gone a little rogue and are causing all kinds of problems. In this book one of Michelle's best friend is kidnapped, Law Enforcement isn't working fast enough for Michelle and her friends so she takes it upon herself to come to the rescue. Also there is a large Dinosaur tearing up the town and it is up to Michelle to jump in and take care of business. All of this after Michelle decided to just do her job and consult and let the Police do theirs.

The series is a pretty action packed, there are a few dull moments though, and some repetitive parts not just in this book, but book one which bleeds over into book 2. The books are written in POV between Michelle and Elron. This book makes a bit more sense as to why Elron gets his own POV chapters more then in the first book. With all that being said I am enjoying this series and and ready to jump into book 3.

Witch's Trial is the 3rd book in the A Witch's Path series by N E Conneely. This book picks up where book 2 leaves off. I have to admit it was not my favorite of the 3 books, I am actully giving this book a 3 1/2 stars. This book was not as action packed as the other 2 and well Michelle was pretty whiny in this book. She has always been tough and a whiny Michelle just didn't set well with me. The book did give a lot of backstory to the other 2 books though. It was nice to know how things more or less started to some of the open ended story lines in books 1 and 2. Elron does finally get his place as co-star in the series.

In this book Michelle is getting invitations from covens all over and some of them are down right pushy. Michelle and the gang are gearing up to go after the Grimoree. Elron and Michelle are getting closer even with the newfound knowledge that his wife Sylvia is still alive but also knowing that she must die.

I have enjoyed this series even if this was not my favorite of the 3. I will be looking for more books buy N E Conneely as well.


I was given my copy of this book from Audiobookworm Promotions and the author for review purposes.

Bummer, Jeff Hays does Great voices

Jeff Hays does Great voices, but he "reads" too fast and the the story is rather YA. Waste of a credit, can't finish. what a waste of a story

I enjoyed the first 3 books

Book One: I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Jeff Hays. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

The world that Michelle lives in is a lot like ours except that humans are part of a society that is ruled by magical creatures. In fact, humans are often looked down upon since they don't have magic.

Michelle is a witch and her job is to work with the local police departments on magical cases. She's a consultant and does a good job at helping the police save magical creatures, even making spells for them to use at times. She's super busy working on cases when her personal life also throws her a curve, although she handles it well.

Witch for Hire grabbed my interest from the beginning and it never slowed down. The ending was good, it was at a good stopping point, but there is more to come so I'm looking forward to starting the next book in the series tomorrow.

I enjoyed the narrator. In fact, I thought it was two separate people narrating. I had no clue it was the same person! He's great!

Book Two: This is the second book in The Witch's Path series. I liked the first book but I really enjoyed this one quite a bit more.  Michelle is a young witch but has more power than most witches her age. Her parents are keeping secrets from her and it's bothering her more and more. I could feel her frustration with them, especially when they tell her she needs to stay safe but they don't explain themselves. 

Although Michelle almost died in the previous book, she is still working with police departments. She's proud of what she is able to do but she also feels a responsibility to help others when needed. And when one of her best friends is abducted, she tries to work with the police but she has to decide if she is going to go rogue to find her friend. She had sworn she wouldn't put herself in that kind of danger after the last time, but now her friend's life is at risk. The more I read (or listen) about Michelle, the more I admire her. Of course, Michelle has faults just like we all do, but she is someone who deserves respect. 

There is still someone after Michelle and it wouldn't surprise me if there are more than one someones after her. Things seem to keep getting more and more dangerous for her and she's lucky to have as many friends as she does. They often seem to know that she needs help before she does. She and her neighbor Elron are getting closer and he's a good ally for her to have. 

Jeff Hays is one of the best narrators I've had the privilege of listening to. He is able to not only do multiple voices but he can do both genders. When I started listening to the first book in this series, I thought there were two people narrating.

I definitely recommend The Witch's Path to anyone who likes fantasy. There's also humor, a touch of romance, magic, and suspense...I almost forgot...and a dinosaur! I'm looking forward to listening to the next book.

Book Three: A Witch's Trial is the third book in A Witch's Path series. I listened to Witch for Hire and A Witch's Path in the past couple of weeks. I've enjoyed listening to these books and look forward to reading or listening to more in the series.

Michelle continues to face supernatural problems when called by police departments. The more publicity she gets, the more offers she gets to join clans. Some of the offers are more like threats if she doesn't join. Once in a while Michelle seems a bit whiny but she has a right to with all that is on her plate.

On top of all that, there's a demon on the loose. Everyone thought demons were a myth or that they were all gone many years ago but they were wrong. Michelle and Elron know they need to find a way to kill the demon but it's been hundreds, maybe thousands, of years so how could there be anyone still alive to tell them what they need to know?

The narrator is amazing. I originally thought it was two people narrating but it's just one. He does a great job doing both male and female voices. 

A Witch's Trial is full of excitement, action, heartbreak, and fantasy.

Everything a Fantasy Should Have

I was charmed by this suspenseful paranormal with a plethora of fantasy species — witches, elves, fae, werewolves, vampires, shape-shifters, giants, trolls, unicorns, demons, brownies, and wizards.

The crafting of the storyline, with its pacing and character development kept me intrigue and ready to listen any moment I could get.

Since the story picks up right where book 2, A Witch’s Path, leaves off, this series really should be listened to from its beginning. Elron, an elf in his prime, 1500 years old, continues his interest in Michelle, only 25, with a lifespan of 300 since she’s a witch. His approach to dating, or as he says courting, is unsure and tentative. He’s not sure of his feelings, only knows he wants to spend time with Michelle and wants to protect her. He asks the forest to help her, which it willingly does because they like her. Just when he is ready to commit a closer relationship to her, the writer spins a twist in the story, that just makes me say damn!

Michelle’s parents become more important in this story — Michelle’s relationship with her father is stronger and she begins relying upon their advice, but only after she very nearly dies. As her powers grow, so too, does her protective streak toward her family and friends.

Her popularity with the police force has brought her to the forefront of the community. Her powers and strength are unknown in a witch so young. Being clanless, she has trouble avoiding the bombardment of ‘invitations’ from clans who would want such a strong witch to join them. Some ‘invitations’ are down right violent.

I was thrilled to see how Michelle is able to cleverly defeat evil within the community time after time, how Elron’s past is woven into the problems the community is having, and the blossoming sweet love of two individuals very much attracted.

Soundbooth Theater brings the story into living color. It is a pleasure hearing the various voices of the different species, working together to defeat the evil which seems to be focused on Michelle! I enjoyed the emotional moments. They are well done. I know if I listen to anything else from Soundbooth Theater, I’m in for some good entertainment.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Jeff Hays. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Surprisingly Good Story

A mixture of a Love Story, and a battle between Good and Evil. Like able and a generally wide variety of characters, good narration, a steady storyline, and satisfying ending. I definitely recommend this listen. Enjoy!

Grumpy obnoxious main character<br />

Don't know how I lasted till the end of the box set. Hoped the bad demon would finish her off! A "poweful" witch who's main talent was complaining. Although constantly under attack stupidly often didn't have her best defence, her wand, handy. Dumb and bad tempered!

fairy tale creatures galore!

I originally bought this book set because of the narrator. I've always enjoyed the narrator style and his many voices.the author of this book managed to capture my imagination quite well and include some romance which is not cliche.
