I love Heather Graham books. They have just the right touch of paranormal and usually a nice romance story also. GhostShadow is no exception. I also liked all the Key West history. It will make you want to go there even though I admit I thought it was a creepy place the only time I was there. Maybe I will have a better attitude if I go back after reading this book. The narration was good also. A good murder mystery ghost story.
The storyline had potential, but this book just fell flat for me. The writing was almost juvenile, in my opinion.
The narrator was also just okay to me.
Ghost Shadow ranks among the top of my books (but not necessarily audibles).
The plot had me on tenterhooks from the beginning. It kept me guessing and wondering until the end. Although, the killer ended up being one of the suspects in my mind, Ghost Shadow threw me off multiple times.
I actually read the book and listen to only a few chapters. Dawe's voice was pleasant, but a little too elevated for a suspense novel. Instead, I preferred the voices I imagined.
I was able to put the book down, but I did listen to it fairly quick (less than a week). It was definitely a book I wanted to pick back up. Toward the last chapters, I couldn't put it down even when I was dead sleepy. And I found myself not being able to rest well, unless I finished at that instance. So I did.
I am now a fan of Heather Graham's novels and will be attempting to read/listen to all of them in the future.
It starts out kind of slow but then the action picks up. Kate can see and talk to ghosts. I really liked Bartholomew, her privateer ghost. David's ex-girlfriend was murdered 10 years before and now the murders are starting again when he comes back to town. At the beginning of the book is a history of Key West and more history is spattered throughout the book which was kind of interesting. The romance between Kate and David starts out slow and their "romance" scenes aren't dragged out as in some books. The ghosts play a role in helping to solve the murders. There are several rabbit trails and the murderer was a surprise. A nice mystery book with a few ghosts tossed in.
The narrator did a good job on the male and female voices.
I tried a couple of times, but did not like the book well enough to stay with it. I don't know if it was the book or the narrator, but I didn't care for it. The narrator is not a good match for the story; she often reads too fast and doesn't add inflection. I don't plan to try another audiobook from this author.
I have loved every Heather Graham book I have read.
This one is just a plain fun mystery with a touch of fantasy and romance - entertaining and not too heavy.
Angela Dawe is a favourite narrator.
I for one was not disappointed.
Audible Obsessed wishes she had more time for so many audiobooks.
Ok. I thought this was a good book to listen to. I can't really tell if I am picky, or if the book is kind of predictable by the amount of details given along the way. I would like to read the continuation of the series, but I wouldn't go as eager. This is not the kind of book that has a cliffhanger or anything.
The scenes of love/sex between David and Katie could be hotter. I mean, you don't get the time to appreciate the moment. I don't feel like I got to know the characters or get involved with them. It was a little too fast.
Yes, they are cute together, no, I didn't feel like I wanted to listen to it all in one sitting.
I think it felt a little similar to that 'Ghost Whisperer' TV show. The ghost principles are a little similar... I felt like a little rip off, but I don't know which one came first, the book or the show...
Maybe this is just just because I am spiritistic and I believe there is more to ghosts and afterlife than what was presented in this book, but I thought the concept was a little weak.
But if you like ghost stories and have no strong beliefs or concepts on that matter, you will find this book intriguing in the least.
Angela Dawes was a good narrator. Good job.
I loved the mix of story and history.
I don't believe I have heard her before. She was really good. The different voices she used made the characters really real!
I think I just really didn't enjoy the narrator because I've read several Heather Graham books and alwasy enjoyed them. I barely got through this book though.
