Delilah is back!!!

I have loved every book in this series so far and have eagerly awaited this. While this was just as twisting and twisted as the other 3, I felt like something was missing and I still can't figure out what!!

Plot wise, this sees the mayor and her husband being kidnapped and held for ransom, so of course her in laws have to step in and rescue them, with the help of some mafia men as well. Will they prevail before it's too late and can they figure out who the mastermind is? The plot was just as twisting and dark as previous ones, but I also felt like it was missing the same magic that the previous ones had. Everything seemed to come too easy and I just didn't connect with this as much as I did the others. Saying that, there is still a lot of twists and turns and surprises in it, that will keep you guessing till the end!!

The characters were all as well written and developed as ever. Delilah is back and as twisted as ever. She is allowed to unleash her inner evil a little more in this one and boy is she..... odd ;)

In all, this was a great read, just not as enchanting as the last few!! Going by the ending, you just know that there is more bad things to come to the "good" folk of Cold Hollow, and I for one, say bring it on!!

J. Scott Bennett is definitely becoming a favourite narrator of mine! I'm not long after finishing one of his middle grade books and then, to come into this one and see how he can change into such sick and twisted characters perfectly, was amazing!! He truly knows how to preform and bring each character alive. I highly recommend you try at least one of his books!!!

Great addition to the series

Any additional comments?

Thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable. This is how a Suspense/Thriller should be. So many shorter Suspense/Thriller stories lose their way and are disappointing in the end. That does not happen here. This is an on the edge of your seat, hang on for the ride story just like the previous installments. The whole series is creative and original with a unique, twisted and crazy cast of characters.

Mystery, suspense, humor and horror once again combined into a dark, twisted, engaging and interesting story.

Warning: Never underestimate or cross the Gillette family.

Things don't stay calm in Cold Hollow for very long. The game is on. Myrna and Tom have been taken. The question is by whom and why? When two of their own go missing they will stop at nothing to get them back and serve up their own type of justice. Maurice, Adam and Delilah are back in town to help rescue Myrna and Tom. The bad guys are now the good guys in this situation at least. It's an interesting twist to now have the murderer's, thieves and the mafia the good guys?

Delilah. Oh Delilah, you just have to experience her to understand.

J Scott Bennett once again does a fantastic job with the narration. His voice brings the characters to life the minute the story starts. Clearly spoken with a smooth even pace. Great character voices. Perfect match of narrator and story. Very enjoyable.

Entertaining, enjoyable story

I once again enjoyed visiting the town of Cold Hollow and it's unusual and quirky residents. The humour, excitement and suspense come across well and the narration by J Scott Bennett is excellent. He brings the story to life, giving individual voices to the characters and the different accents he does are great. Things never seem to at peace for long in this town, but then with a town full of not quite rehabilitated prisoners and their somewhat deviant families what do you expect! The new parolee seems like a nice guy but his secret obsession surfaces and he unknowingly helps take care of a town problem. I enjoy how the characters and the world as a whole has grown in depth and complexity with each book, yet each book can still be read as a stand-alone, even though there are threads that run from one book to the next. I received the audiobook at no cost and at no obligation to review.

Vengeance for All

Enjoy the creepily strange characters of Cold Hollow.

For those who don't know, Cold Hollow is a small, isolated, Vermont town that has a contract to be a sort of half-way home for parolees and former parolees. Many people come here and thrive, others...not so much.

In the fourth Cold Hollow book, the mayor and her husband have been kidnapped for ransom. The new parolee is not at all what he seems to be. And the town is hit by a nor'easter just before Christmas. As you can guess from the title, someone is out for vengeance, and that results in more vengeance, and so forth. It gets complicated (of course), and I'm going to have to listen again to catch all the nuances.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the publisher, author, or narrator. This is my honest opinion.

Cold Hollow Series is crazy weird, in a good way.

Where does Vengeance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've read/listened to better books but, I really like this series. I've read them all, some are better than others but, they're all good.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, that's the best part of Cold Hollow series, the crazy plots. I liked this one in particular and thought it progressed well from the previous books.

Have you listened to any of J. Scott Bennett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have and I think they're all quality performances. I thought this one was a step above the others though.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Cold Hollow, Nothing is as it seems.

Any additional comments?

I was gifted this book by the author/publisher for an unbiased review. I love the Cold Hollow books and have been fortunate enough to read them all in order. They are worth taking a chance on if you like quirky storylines and crazy characters.
