Pleasantly surprised

I really liked this book! I took a leap of faith in getting it, as I knew nothing of the author or narrator, but it turned out to be one of my favorite listens to date. I usually listen to detective thrillers, and that will no doubt remain my genre of choice, but this was a pleasant change of pace from the hard edged style of that type of mystery, and those rough (and sometimes brutal) characters. Good writing and the narrator was OUTSTANDING, with her melodic, southern drawl. A real pleasure to listen to her read. The mystery, like the entire book, wasn't terribly heavy, but it was so engaging that I found myself almost listening to it straight through. The paranormal aspects were believable (not hokey) and they gave a spooky ambiance to the story without being too much. Don't worry if you're squeamish - The Shining, this was not. It won't keep you up at night, but it had just enough scare factor to satisfy a reader looking for something with that type of twist. That was part of the enjoyment of the book. It was just a nice book. A good mystery with some ghosts thrown in, and a romance that actually had some honest-to-goodness chemistry. I would highly recommend it if you are looking for a light paranormal mystery, that is a very easy listen, and yet captivating enough to keep you truly entertained throughout the entire story.

- Joanna "Used to read classic lit for pleasure of well-written prose. Now, with MS, it's thrillers, courtroom/police dramas, and adventure to escape!"

Simple, safe story...

This book was an easy "read/listen." There is nothing controversial, steamy, offensive, scary, or complex about it. If you are looking for a no-brainer, non-thought-provoking, easy listen, it is definitely worth your time. I enjoyed the story, but felt that it was really written on a level that would be safe for 6th graders (not that the story would interest 6th graders). So, it was not a "bad" story by any means, and the narrator does an ok job, it just did not instill much emotion at all (which is not always such a bad thing). I would like to give it 3.5 stars.
