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 into her inherited home, she discovers Aunt Tillie never moved out. She's still one pissed-off old lady, even postmortem, and she blames Mara's magical meddling for her death.
When Mara accidentally releases a demon and awakens the spirit of the most powerful witch in history, Tillie's ready to kill her - literally. It's the only way she can think of to save the girl from herself. The witch and the demon, however, have other plans for Mara's body!
Mara is a witch with an incredible amount of bad luck. Luck so bad even her precious tarot cards are against her. Evicted from her spectacular apartment, and jobless, Mara finds herself in need of a little magical intervention. It is a little magical intervention that leads the Mara to her late Aunt Tillie’s cottage, a cottage a very cranky Aunt Tillie refuses to leave behind even in death. A cottage full of secrets Aunt Tillie’s ghost is willing to go to extremes to keep buried. With few options and needing a place to live, Mara reluctantly moves into her aunt’s cottage and gets way more than a new home. Mara’s misguided magic leads her to the accidental release of demon and a spirt of one extremely powerful witch. One fun and crazy story, filled with hilarious characters.
Although I tend to stick to the romance genre I really enjoyed, Someone Tell Aunt Tillie She’s Dead. I found the story to be funny, and I loved the characters. Christiana Miller created an exciting story and Marie Rose is one amazing narrator, and she really brought the story to life. She did a great job with Mara, but she rocked the secondary characters! I found myself laughing out loud, she has a way of giving each character such vivid personality, you can’t help but be sucked in. Gus, Mara’s gay best friend is sarcastic and hysterical. His character really added to the fun of the story. Aunt Tillie’s ghost is one crazy and tough old lady, a ghost on a mission! The way Mara interacts with Aunt Tillie makes me smile. My favorite character was the small town store clerk, with Maria as the narrator I had a perfect vision of the pimpled teenager, his voice added to his character really bringing out his personality. All of these characters and the layers of story made for one fun audio book.
