   The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . .THE WONKIEST WITCH (Wonky Inn, #1) . . . FUN. MYSTERY. WITCH. MURDER. Alf was the light-hearted character that I was looking for after the week had. She too was looking to get-away and start something new all of her own. Only to have her plans stalled by the unexpected and the obstacles placed in her way. Packing up and heading back home may have been an option but she was made of something more. I liked her determination. I liked the build in to a character and location. I loved the English countryside even if it was not initially welcoming to Alf. 

Alf was one of a kind. She was independent by nature. A rocky relationship with her mother. A lost relationship with her father. And someone(s) were trying to scare her off of the one thing that tied her to the memories she had that were so fond. The ending was a surprise and not at the same time. This was the one part that I needed a little tissue. I very much enjoyed this little wonky witch. She was coming in to her own. 

The narrator had a light and airy feel that brought out the coziness of the mystery and the paranormal aspect of it as well. The soft English accent help me feel right at home and just that much closer to the characters. The accent(s) felt real authentic.

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

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.

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.
