    1 thought on “Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie She's Dead”

    1. This bookwas kind of a mess. The premise was interesting, but the execution fell short. The whole first part of the book went on way too long and could have been shortened down quite considerably. The book was nearly half over before Mara even got to the cottage she inherited, the cottage where the main action of the story was to take place. Since part one took so long, the second part of the book was a bit jumbled as new characters and plot points were introduced fairly quickly and not fully ex [...]

    2. Rating: 3.5* of fiveThe Publisher Says: A little magic can go a long way - to really screwing up a girl's life!Mara is having the worst month of her life. At least, that's what her cards tell her and they've never been wrong. She's evicted from her apartment, loses her job, and is banned from Beverly Hills. So when the tarot cards predict her imminent demise, she uses a little magic to make her world right.Suddenly, an aunt she's never met dies, leaving Mara as her sole heir. But when Mara moves [...]

    3. SOMEBODY STOP ME. I can't stop downloading books from Kindle's top 100 free list. What to say about this paranormal romp? Huh. Well, on the PLUS side the book is pretty focused on our character being fairly self-sufficient and vaguely competent. Except when she wasn't. On the negative side, it is hard to reconcile the fairly basic plotline (Witchy girl inherits haunted house with moderately disastrous results) with all of the things that happen in this book. Did you want a foray into body-posses [...]

    4. I picked this up for a good price on . I'm always looking for paranormals with a bite of humor. The reviews sounded positive enough that I purchased this title.Mara is a reluctant witch, who's life seems to be on a rollercoaster ride downhill. She's lost her job, is being evicted from her apartment and has a cloud of evil following her. Keeping her spirits up is her best friend and sidekick Gus. Things look up, though, when her great-aunt Tillie dies and leaves her a cottage in Wisconsin. It's a [...]

    5. I picked Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie She’s Dead because of a few great reviews on GoodReads. My curiosity was piqued. After all, how can you resist a down on her luck heroine, a flamboyant gay best friend and a magical toad? Not to mention a bossy ghost that doesn’t know when to leave well enough alone.The lead character, Mara, is a walking, talking example of Murphy’s Law; anything that can go wrong will. She’s date-less, unemployed, and soon to be homeless. Unfortunately, that’s just t [...]

    6. Recommended by a friend - glad I decided to try it, but it felt too familiar. I haven't decided if I will continue the series. Well worth reading for a Kindle freebie.

    7. Reviewed for Wickedly Bookishwickedlybookish/Mara just can't seem to catch a break. Her witchy ways are getting her into trouble left and right and just when things start to look up, she realizes the cozy country cottage she inherited from her Aunt Tillie has a few dark passengers. Will Mara be able to survive her legacy with the help of her own power, a tricky toad, and a flamboyantly fearless best friend?This was so much fun to read I didn't want it to end! Christiana Miller weaves a captivati [...]

    8. From Lilac Wolf and StuffThe cover is cartoonish and eye catching. In fact it was the cover that caught my eye on one of those free-ebook pages on Facebook. So yes, I downloaded this for the Kindle. I don't have a Kindle so I read this on my phone. I actually couldn't put it down, my phone went with me everywhere for a few days. My oldest asked me last night, "Why are you reading on your phone???" Because Mommy has to finish this book and it's not on the Nook. Nope, but I did just request it.The [...]

    9. Today's review is on Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie She's Dead by Christiana MillerWhile looking for a book to read between author requests, I came across this quirky, snarky, cute tale full of ghosts, love, and friendship. And though I loved it, and had difficulty putting it down, it was chock full of editing mistakes.Mara is an untrained witch trying to make ends meet just like every other person living in LA. While waiting at a red light she pulls out her trusty tarot deck and pulls three cards to [...]

    10. It's Mara's birthday and according to her tarot card reading things aren't going to go well for her. Proving that Mara's skills are top notch, it's not long before Mara finds herself banned from Beverly Hills, unemployed and facing homelessness after being evicted from her LA apartment. Luckily for Mara, she inherits a home when her Aunt Tilly dies. Unfortunately for Mara, this house is haunted by a very pissed off Aunt Tilly, who's certain that Mara doesn't have the sense God gave cabbage and n [...]

    11. My Review: 3-StarsFirst response - Needs some work, but I liked it. Great spell casting! Full review on my blog.First of all, the title is off the mark. Aunt Tillie knows very well that she's dead, and she's not happy about it at all. In fact, she blames Mara for her death! Poor Mara, just one in a whole pile of problems.The cover art caught my eye with all the color, but it was because it was so bright. I like a lot of the elements on it. However, the house in the book sounded so wonderful and [...]

    12. I was not really sure what to expect for this book. It was more a paranormal read with twists and turns, than a romance or mystery. It was entertaining and engaging throughout.The characters are immensely likeable, Mara and Gus have a terrific dynamic. They have an awesome friendship and I really wish there were more of that and less of the underlying drama. The main plot with the doom and gloom could have more show and less tell. I found myself really wanting to know more of the build and ebb o [...]

    13. This is such a great fun read. It has a little of it all. It has magic and mystery. Mayhem and humor. A little bit of dark magic, a little bit of light magic. Ghosts and demons. Big city, small town. Witty best friend, death and destruction. Love interests and did I mention magical toads?Okay, so you sort of get the idea, this book will appeal to just about everyone and has just about everything you could ask for in a great paranormal read.A great heroine, Mara, who is no push over and knows how [...]

    14. I found this one to be pretty much a hot mess. The pacing was uneven, the characters - while relatively amusing - seemed to have strange little quirks that would come and go and quite a bit of the first part of the book was unnecessary. The second half of the book, if one entire scene and its follow ups were removed, would be the better part of the book as this is where the ghost of Aunt Tilly comes in as well as the toad and the house with attitude.Then there were so many plot points tossed out [...]

    15. I must say, I enjoyed this book far more than I expected too. Mara is a bit of a whiny little witch. She seems to wait to be saved by everybody until it becomes clear that she is not going to be saved if she does not save herself. Bute has a friend. Gus. I adore Gus. He is fun, flamboyant. And totally outrageously addictively gay. The start of the book is very slow, the middle is welle middle and the end goes at a break neck speed full of sex, hexing and ghosts and most of the time, especially a [...]

    16. Not bad for a self-published independent author. Ms. Miller aspires to the quirkiness of Janet Evanovich. She doesn't make it there, but Ms. Evanovich relies too heavily on formula, so maybe that's not so bad to fall short of that goal. I didn't love this protagonist outright. She was a little too new age-y and a bit cliched for my taste. I did grow to like the story by the end, though. This series has some promise if it sticks more to the paranormal elements and less to the obnoxious banter wit [...]

    17. First in the Toad Witch paranormal fantasy series and revolving around the witchy Mara Stephens and her two sidekicks.My TakeThis was so cute with the good versus the bad, light versus dark, with the circle of life taking on a whole new meaning. In a scary way! Although, that twist with Aunt Tillie took awhile for me to get my head around. Miller did a nice job on the backstory — yay! — without any info dumps! Mara did have a unique childhood, and I suspect there could be a story there as we [...]

    18. Mara is a modern urban witch struggling to make ends meet and coping with violent, disturbing dreams. Her charming gay sidekick, Gus, tries helping her through voodoo spell clearing and pep talks. Mara inherits a cottage in the Wisconsin woods, which seems to solve her problems but is filled with magic and wards created by her witch ancestors and inhabited by the ghost of her Aunt Tillie, who left it to her. As Mara strives to make the cottage her home, put Aunt Tillie's ghost in its place, hand [...]

    19. "At the beginning of this whole, surreal journey, I had no idea you could be evicted from your body as easily as you could be booted out of your apartment."&“One of the problems with being a witch is when you ask the universe a question, it generally gives you an answer. Or at least enough of one to ruin a perfectly good week.”And thus with not one but with two killer opening lines, Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie She’s Dead begins.Writing a line like that – let alone two lines – takes s [...]

    20. I chose this book because I thought it would be more on the funny side, it was not.I chose this book because I thought it would be more on the funny side, it was not. It got tedious to read so I would put it down and then come back to it. Not sure if I'll read anymore.

    21. I have to say, I felt a bit misled by the cover of this book, which suggests a light, humorous read.Well it isn't. Not in my opinion. That's not to say it wasn't a fine read, but it wasn't what I was expecting. Mara is having the month from hell. She's lost her job, is being evicted from her apartment because she's practicing witchcraft, and her tarot cards give her nothing but death, sorrow and destruction. She even dreams the ghastly death of a woman who turns out to be her Aunt Tillie. Mara's [...]

    22. With a title like Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie She's Dead, the book ought to be an fun read. Turns out, this book was much more than just fun. It is a funny, entertaining, magical and scary tale about witches and a haunted cottage.Mara's a witch with bad luck. She's unemployed and she's about to lose her apartment thanks to an anti-Wiccan landlord. With the help of magic and her best friend Gus, Mara tries to get her life on tracks. That's when she learns her Aunt Tillie died and left her all of [...]

    23. Life isn’t looking too good for Mara. She’d lost her job, unemployment is running out, the job market isn’t good and she is now losing her apartment because the apartment manager equates wicca with devil worshipping. So it sounds fortuitous when she learns her great Aunt Tillie has died and left her everything, including a cottage in WI. Only Tillie’s ghost attempts to kill her to get her to leave; for her own good. And of course Mara won’t be driven out.Mara’s best friend is a gay m [...]

    24. This is a tough one for me. It had some pluses, but in the end, there were some pretty big negatives. Overall I ended up not liking it much. Some rather large inconsistencies in the plot/characters detracted from the story. Toward the end, there were scenes that were dropped in from nowhere that seemed to have nothing to do with the story and served no purpose. Instead of these scenes, I'd have liked to see some of the plot/questions answered. For example: Why did her mom abandon her all those y [...]

    25. I've given this likeable book 2.5 stars. THE STORY:'Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie She's Dead' is a fun, quick read, with interesting details of witchy rituals and beliefs. I learnt quite a few tidbits of info that sparked my interest. I think this is my favourite aspect of the book. Clearly the author took the time time to research witchery thoroughlyE CHARACTERS:Mara's best friend Guy was definitely the best developed character. Warm, humorous and loyal, without becoming too second fiddle.Grundlesh [...]

    26. This had the makings of being a great book, but it fell short. Way short. It took 15 chapters to get to the main story, and then the end seemed rushed. I literally did not know who Aunt Tillie was until the book was half over. Since the title suggests the book is about Aunt Tillie and she is a integral part of the story she should have been introduced earlier on in the book. The author spent WAY too much time harping on the fact that Mara was getting evicted. What she said in 15 chapters could h [...]

    27. I'm a bit conflicted about this one, I mostly enjoyed it but the second and more interesting part of the book felt a bit rushed. Mara moves in, and everything happens at once , while the first half was very slow. There seemed to be a bit too mant types of magical things going on for a girl living a day to day existence in todays world (even in the backwoods). However, most of the characters were well drawn and complete, with the possible exception of Paul, who definitely should have been more fu [...]

    28. This book started out as a very cute chick lit with a couple of fun characters. The problem for me was that halfway through, it became really dark. There were some unusual sex scenes towards the end that left me scratching my head since the rest of the book had been so lighthearted and fun. The romance was also unusual since Mr. Right didn't show up until the last third of the book. I liked the narrator a lot, and enjoyed her bff as well, but overall, I was left rather confused by what kind of b [...]
