Publisher's Summary

In this historical mystery, set in Arkansas in 1961 when the mob still ruled Hot Springs, babies are being kidnapped, and the local sheriff has to put this case to bed before the bosses come down from Chicago. They don't need the heat, and they have the leverage with the sheriff to make him do whatever they want. It seems like a good move to arrest Leslie Richards, the new woman in town, even though there is only thin circumstantial evidence against her. Better for it to be a stranger taking those babies and not one of their own.
Leslie has left New York with her 10-year-old daughter, Mandy, hoping to escape from her past and the ruins of a relationship, only to discover that there is little peace for her in Pine Hollow, Arkansas.

Interesting Plot

The plot was very interesting and the ending was good. I would have liked a little more background or information on the motive. The motive was presented, but the full story wasn't really presented.

The narrator was perfect for this book. She had nice accents, and she had a voice that seemed was great for a mom in the 70s.

Twists and turns keep you guessing.

Would you consider the audio edition of Boxes for Beds to be better than the print version?

I don't have time or the inclination to sit with a book so I love audios so that I can do other things at the same time.


What did you like best about this story?

I was shocked when Mandy was the one who found the babies. I love a twist that I didn't see coming.


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

No but she has good diction, easy to follow and knows where the characters are going.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. It is so much easier to keep track of the characters in one sitting.
