I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. The main character has gumption and the chemistry between the main characters is delightful. I plan to listen to more books in this series
She is a good narrator but just sounds too old for the main character, is kind of weird at first.
Say something about yourself!
This was a quick fun read. I love Abby the main character. As far as protagonists go she doesn't make a ton of classic stupid cliche mistakes like checking out the strange noise in the basement during a storm with an escaped serial killer on the loose or anything. I am excited to check out more books in the series and see how Abby continues her business and mischief.
The one problem I had with this book was with the narrator. Abby is supposed to be a thirty-something young woman, however the narrator sounds like a 60 year old grandmother of three. Her tones would also change strangely from time to time, not fitting with the scene. It's not distracting enough to keep me from listening to more though. Overall I was pleased with the story and look forward to listening to the next book.
I really liked this book . I love the author and the plot but I was disappointed by how it ended . Anyway I wanna listen to it again that is how good it is .
I enjoyed the book & story line a lot! I love the depth of the characters. The narrator, however didn't use clearly distinctive voices to differentiate the characters making it at times a little difficult to follow.
I was a 'readaholic' for most of my life. I started crochet and other hobbies. That took away from my reading time. I discovered audio books at the library. That set me off. now, that I am older my eyes make it too difficult to read. So I now am a very diligent audio book listener!
The story is interesting and develops well. I enjoyed most of it. Even though I enjoyed it I rated it only 3 stars. This is because of the story being too predictable. There were no surprises. Also Elizabeth Michaels voice doesn't fit the character. She does a fair job with her narration. But, she has a soft voice. This makes it hard to understand at times especially with soft sounding inflections. The main character is supposed to be from Texas, remarks are made about her 'accent'. There is no hint of any kind of accent. Then suddenly a false 'twang' would be inserted almost as an after thought. This detracted from the story. Also the too soft voice made a need to have the volume up high. High volume with an audio book tends to distort the voice. Listening to a soft voice makes it a very hard to understand when there are background noise while walking and such. It makes a need to put earphones and volume on high. I don't like to use blocking out all noise while walking, this being a safety problem. I wish editors would realize this. Narrators need to read in a strong voice. Maybe the recording volume was set or edited too low. The soft voice has me hesitant about purchasing more books with this narrator.
This was a good story line as long as you keep it in context. I enjoyed the story and the narrator did a good job with telling the story. I will follow the series and see how this goes.
"Did not know what to expect from a psychic type mystery but it was very entertaining and well done."

A real plot and a better narrator. This sounded like a fun light series and I am always looking for something I can dive into as I spend a lot of time listening to books.
I was so bored the first 4 chapters I would have given up on the entire book, but I was on a long flight and had no other reading material, so I kept listening. I kept hoping it would get better. Sadly, it did not. Perhaps I was so distracted by the AWFUL narration that I couldn't really give this book a fair shot.
Amanda Ronconi could probably have saved this book. Elizabeth Michaels does not have an unpleasant voice, but she need lessons on pronouncing words and using different voices. Everyone sounded the same except when there was an inadvertant south Jersey (or south Philly?) accent.
There should have been more consistency/fact checking.
This felt like a high school English assignment which was "padded" into the first of a series. Other reviewers have indicated that the series gets better in the later books but I just can't force myself to listen.
