Welcome to Halfway; where the waffles are golden, the moon is silver, and magic is just around every corner.
A century old curse is broken, releasing Exit Wainwright, an innocent man trapped alone in time.
Lost and in danger, he enlists Carlie, Gran, and their magic to find the warlock who sentenced him to a hundred years of darkness. The hunter becomes the hunted when Carlie’s spells awaken a cold-blooded killer intent on adding another pelt to their gruesome collection: hers.
But the killer has never been to Halfway before, where there are three unbreakable rules:
1. Don’t complain about the diner’s waffles.
2. Don’t break the laws of magic.
3. Never threaten a witch on her home turf.
Can Carlie solve an ancient crime, defeat a ruthless killer and save the love of her life from a vampire’s curse without burning the waffles?
Come hunt with Carlie, and answer the call of the wild.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Terry Maggert. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
Halfway Hunted really got into how cruel and terrible some people, er, creatures? can be toward others. It starts with finding a man who awakens from a hundred year slumber curse, asking our witchy heroine to help find what happened to his family, to unearthing a terrible, um, collection of furs. And a whole lot in between.
This third story definitely is a heavy one and continues on the path of twisty turny plots this series is fond of. Our girl Carlie, and Gran, bravely take on scary bad people again and again to protect their friends and the people of their lands.
Carlie even shows her strength as a witch and her willpower with her continual work on a spell to save her beloved from the vampire curse. Even though it is dangerous, terrifying, forbidden even. She will do all she can to help those she loves.
One thing that I had a difficult time with in this series is the passage of time. I didn’t realize almost a year had passed from this book to the previous one. Somewhere I’m missing these details until they are clearly stated as part of dialogue or something else.
The narration continues to be wonderful for this series. I like the narrator’s voice and tone and her talking speed. I like the voices she gives to other characters, and the bit of attitude she gives Carlie and Gran.
Definitely an enjoyable 3rd book and series overall.
