Publisher's Summary

When Jesse Graham unlocks the door to the deserted house she inherited from her Aunt Helen, she doesn't realize she's unlocking secrets that had lain dormant for years. Reeling from a broken engagement to acclaimed musician Robert Cronmiller, Jesse wants to leave the city where her name is linked to his in all the society pages. Her best friend, Maggie, aka Sister Angelina, convinces her to take a job at a private girls school in the pastoral Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. Anticipating a quiet, revitalizing life in her aunt's deserted house, Jesse is instead thrown into a maze of danger. Questions about her aunt's death lead Jesse to investigate events surrounding it and the people involved, but she uncovers a web of deceit that reaches far beyond the occurrences of over two decades earlier. Still dejected from her broken engagement, Jesse finds it difficult to trust anyone, even her self-absorbed mother. Joe Riley is irresistible, but secrets obstruct involvement with him until Jesse can solve the secrets of the Cavanaugh House. Someone doesn't want those secrets unearthed and will stop at nothing, even murder, to keep them hidden.

Where does The Cavanaugh House rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I am a frequent listener of audiobooks and really enjoyed listening to this one! I enjoyed the inflections in Amy McFadden's voice as she took the part of the varied characters.
I live in upstate NY so I enjoyed the references to familiar places and products.
The most entertaining part for me was the unfolding of the secrets and mystery that are an important part of the story.

What other book might you compare The Cavanaugh House to and why?

This book is similar to The Mermaid's Chair in the small and interesting details of people and places. Both books transport you to a different time and place. There are mysteries and exploring of spirits in both books.

What does Amy McFadden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I did read the book shortly after it was released in paperback. I then enjoyed listening to it about 18 months later.
Amy McFadden brought the characters to life by voicing their humor, determination and insecure moments. I could easily picture the situations as I relaxed and listened to the great story.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When the main character finds the missing pieces of who she is, after a long and difficult search.

Any additional comments?

I have recommended this book and audiobook to many friends.
