Publisher's Summary

In 1934, the body of a beautiful, but poor young woman was found alongside a riverbank near The Depot. Beaten to a pulp, only recognizable by a tattoo on her ankle, and yet, days after the discovery, the story all but disappears.
Eighty years later, locals claim The Depot is haunted. But in all the years homicide detective Mark Waters has visited the abandoned1800s train station turned restaurant, he's never seen proof. Until now.
As he sifts through evidence of a supposed suicide by train, he learns a murder that took place eighty years ago may directly affect his case.
Six months after the strange occurrences at The Depot, there's another murder. This time, The Library holds secrets of several murders, and the dead won't rest until the murderer checks out too.

If you could sum up The Library: Where Life Checks Out in three words, what would they be?

Ghostly Crimesolving Adventures

What other book might you compare The Library: Where Life Checks Out to and why?

I don't compare books with each other.

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

I have listened to many of her performances and will most likely listen to many many more! She is one of my favorite narrators :) Her performances are always really good. I can't wait to start another of her projects! They are always a really fun listen no matter what the genre or subject matter.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Ghostly Intervention Just In Time

Any additional comments?

This series must be listened to (or read) in order. The first book is The Pit Stop: This Stop Could be Life or Death and as far as I know is unavailable in Audible Audio Edition format. The second book is The Depot: When Life and Death Cross Tracks and is included in this edition though not listed in the description as far as I could tell. This is the third (and it seems final) book in this series.

Mark has been trying to deny the existence of ghosts for quite some time now. It keeps getting harder and harder for him to pretend they are not real and that they are figments of his imagination. His fiancée's life was saved by her greatgrandmother's ghost after all. Can he keep denying the supernatural's existence? Or will he just take the extra help to solve this odd string of crimes spanning generations? Will he be able to stop the killing before it lands too close to home? How can he trust his instincts when he half believes henis cracking up? What is really going on in their town?

***This book is suitable for mature young adult through adult listeners (and readers) who enjoy short supernatural mysteries with a bit of romance and ghostly intervention :)

A haunting story...

I received this audio book as a gift in exchange for a honest and unbiased review. The Library by Carmen DeSousa is a well written and thought out story about a murder from 80 years ago and now the Depot is claimed to be haunted. I really enjoyed listening to this audio book! There is danger, thrills, excitement, mystery and even love! This book has an original plot and the characters are so likable, even the ghosts.

The author, Carmen DeSousa did a great job writing this story. I found myself sitting there listening, almost glued to my chair! The narrator, Michelle Babb does an excellent delivery of this book with her multiple voices. Her voices are soothing and entertaining! Great job both of you!
