Publisher's Summary

Over the years, terrible things keep happening to Anna Ray on February 17. First, there was the childhood trauma she's never been able to speak about. Then, to her horror, her husband killed himself on that date.
A year later and a thousand miles away, Anna tries to find solace in the fresh start of a new job in a new place. She takes comfort in her outspoken cousin Jeannie, the confidant and best friend who's there whenever she needs help. On the day of the dreaded anniversary, Anna and Jeannie hit the town, planning to ease the pain with an alcohol-induced stupor and then sleep....
When Anna awakes the next morning, she thinks she can put one more February 17 behind her, but fate is about to intervene in the form of two gruesome murders with eerie similarities to her violent past. This time, however, she won't be an abandoned daughter or a grieving widow. This time, she'll be a suspect.

What did you love best about Baggage?

The characters of Anna and Jeanie were so relatable. Flawed and tragic yet we could be best friends. I loved their connection throughout and how they held each other up in times of tragedy. They were cousins but choose to be sisters.

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

I couldn't stop listening. I found myself driving aimlessly around my small town just to get in a few more chapters.

Have you listened to any of Amy McFadden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was the first of Amy McFadden's that I listened to, but I will be looking for more of her narrations. Terrific performance.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There were moments I teared up and moments I laughed. Thoroughly enjoyed every part of the book. S. G. Redling is a master storyteller.

Great Mystery with a Real Twist

There are two mysteries running through this novel. One involves the heroine's past, the other a murder of a professor at the university where she works. And there is a third mystery, how is her past connected to the murder. That should be enough to show us where the twist lies, but its a far cry from explaining what will happen. I can tell you I was surprised at the conclusion and even more pleased at how it all makes sense.

Amy Mcfadden pulls off one of the best performances I have experienced. I would put her up there with Kathleen Early and Caroline Lee.
