The second Spooky Town Mystery audiobook, once again featuring Abby and Frank as the main protagonists, brings a serial killer to terrorize the inhabitants of small town Spooky. Ten years earlier Frank, as a Chicago cop, had shot a murder, but the guy escaped and no more was heard from him until disappearances, following the same modus operandi, began in Spooky. This old adversary of Frank's puts Abby and all the inhabitants of Spooky in danger. This is an enjoyable and entertaining mystery story that has depth, suspense and really appealing characters. The main storyline moved forward at a good pace and kept you wondering what would happen next. The authors choice of victims and the effects their disappearance had on their families was realistic and created sympathy in the readers. The secondary and back storylines added interest and depth to the book, making you even more invested in the characters. It is nice to see Abby moving forward emotionally and I look forward to seeing her and Franks relationship develop. I found the narration a little old fashioned and slow, with Abby's voice sounding more like an old lady as opposed to the middle aged woman she is supposed to be. I did however find that her voice fit Myrtle very well, bringing her quirkiness and character to life. Even though I did not find the narration fit some of the characters, her voices did grow on me and I did not find it distracted me from the storyline. This is an enjoyable, warm and entertaining mystery that keeps your attention and leaves you wanting to continued to follow the lives of the compelling characters of Spooky. I received this audiobook from the author in exchange for an honest review

If you could sum up All Things Slip Away in three words, what would they be?
Great Murder Mystery.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I don't have a favourite one because I enjoyed them all. Abigail is a competent heroine, she is a normal woman and has her insecurities but will do what she can when needed. Frank was even better. He is so kind and nice and a great match for Abigail. Both are equally good and both bring something special to the book.
What about Abby Elvidge’s performance did you like?
Abby was a good narrator. It was easy to listen to her and she made a great Abigail, though I do think she could of added a little more to the other characters.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. Like book 1, I wanted to keep reading to see what happens.
Any additional comments?
All Things Slip Away was a great second book. It can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading book 1 so you can get a feel for the characters. Kathryn Meyers Griffith is such a good story teller and invests so much into her characters. She does the same here and creates a really good murder/ mystery that will keep you reading.
