Welcome Irene

I've been waiting years for Jan Burke's books to be released on audio. A wonderful surprise and I wasn't disapointed. Goodnight Irene on audio was as good as the read. The reader is introduced to Irene Kelly, newspaper reporter, and supporting characters including her detective husband to be, Frank. The locale is a southern California beach town. The pace of Goodnight Irene sometimes slows, but as the series goes on, the books only get tighter and faster paced. The narrator is good, could turn into a favorite of mine. If you've never read Jan Burke, give Goodnight Irene a try. Well worth the credit spent and the time listening.

First time reading Jan Burke

I liked this story and I will try more from Jan Burke, but it was very perdictable. I knew "who done it" way to soon in the story. I actually found this book by looking up Eliza Foss after I listened to her narration of the Mermaid Chair. She has a voice you can just sit back and enjoy. I will definately give another Irene Kelly Novel a listen to. This was number one so I think they will only get better and they don't have far to go I really did enjoy this book.
