Unusual and Enthralling Ghost Story

Would you listen to The Feathers: Southern Spectral Series Book 1 again? Why?

I would listen to The Feathers again for the atmosphere. I enjoyed the New Orleans setting and the time setting, late 1970's. That is an unusual setting when there were no cell phones or internet browsers to help the investigation along. They actually needed to go to libraries to do research. I remember it well!

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

The suspense kept building thoughout to a finish that was entirely unexpected. I am looking forward to the next in the series.

Which character – as performed by Courtney Patterson – was your favorite?

I think it would have to be Brenda- very dogged and willing to admit the possibility of supernatual.

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

I was moved by the accounts of the murder victims. That was a nice stylistic twist that helped them become more human- not just a series of victims.

Any additional comments?
