Publisher's Summary

Someone is spreading rumors around Deadwood that Violet Parker likes to chat with dead folks.
With her reputation endangered, her bank account on the verge of extinction, and her career at risk of going up in flames, Violet is desperate. When the opportunity to sell another vintage home materializes, she grabs it, even though this "haunted" house was recently the stage for a two-act murder-suicide tragedy.
Ghost or no ghost, Violet knows this can't be as bad as the last house of horrors she tried to sell, but sexy Doc Nyce has serious doubts. Her only hope of hanging on to her job is to prove that the so-called ghostly sightings are merely the eccentric owner's optical delusions.
But someone – or something - in the house wants Violet stopped…dead.

Didn't get any better

Ann Charles - Not in the Deadwood series.
Caroline Shaffer - Probably, depending on which book it was.

Would you ever listen to anything by Ann Charles again?


Any additional comments?

I liked all the supporting characters but if you don't like the main character it kind of ruins the whole book. Violet was just too immature and all the sarcastic remarks she makes in her mind gets old fast. I'm sure they were supposed to be cute or funny, but to me they just fell flat.

It did end on a cliffhanger and there are still some unanswered questions, some even from the first book - the author seems to like to drag things out so you'll buy the next book - but I don't care enough to find out.

Second time around is even Better

What made the experience of listening to Optical Delusions in Deadwood the most enjoyable?

This one was more exciting the last one. I have to admit I love how she has several secrets going on in the books to leads up to the next book. I have to say I love the old man in this story he is such a good laugh. I love the new member like Coop. I do want to see her and Doc go some where and stop letting others get in the way.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Optical Delusions in Deadwood?

When her Aunt tell her about how frantic Doc was to find her and how she he deserves to hear from her. How her aunt tells her she gave up enough in her life that it is time to fight for what she wants and deserve. It was a very heart warming thing to hear.

What about Caroline Shaffer’s performance did you like?
