Although not outstanding or particularly memorable, I did enjoy the story and it kept my attention during the commute. However, it wasn't the kind of book that made me plug in the iPhone as soon as I got home to continue the listen. The narrator did a nice job although I found the men's dialog a bit strange.
This was my first Jennifer Crusie book. I wasn't sure I would like it but a friend suggested I give it a try. I found it thoroughly enjoyable. Fun characters, action packed story that kept me guessing. I will be sure to give more of her books a try.
this was just a fun story to listen to on a long commute to and from work
I liked Southy and even the kids in the story.
Angela, had great voices for the characters.
I listened to the audio version of this book. I was a fun, fluffy read. I'm not usually into paranormal or ghosts but it worked for this story. The characters were fun and likeable and there was enough of a mystery to keep the book entertaining (on my long commute to/from work). Yeah, the idea of a haunted house has been used to death but it played well for this story and you even had to like the bad ghosts. If you are looking for a fun book as a break from reality this this is a great read.
This is my first listen to a book by this author. I was pleased!
The book is rather spooky. Lots of ghosts, both friendly and dangerous. However, I was able to sleep that night, so it wasn't too bad! There were very heartbreaking parts with a couple of kids having to make hard decisions and living through tough trials, but it was treated well, and triumphantly.. which I liked.
The mystery was excellent and progressed nicely throughout the book. The romance was very well done, not over-the-top and very realistically so that no one was "perfect".
I was a bit taken aback with the author's blatant stance on God, Hell, judgement, etc. It was a bit 'judge-y'. It has a very new-age-y slant.
The reader was great! Very easy to follow and had a wide range of voices.
All in all, it is a great book and I'd recommend it to anyone ... other than those with very sensitive souls.
This is one of those books that's so good, you want all your friends to read it.
Jennifer Crusie is one of my favorite authors. She always gives you just enough of what you need at the right moment in the story.
Angela Dawe knows just how each of the characters feel. It's as if she is that person...Great Job!
yes , because it kept me interested
the end when everything came together
not the norm for Jennifer but it was good.
Alice - such a funny kid - would like to see her when she is grown up
This was my first Jennifer Crusie novel and it was very different than the type of book I usually read/listen to. As such, it was a bit "fluffier" but it was nice to not have rewind all the time for things I might have missed. The story was amusing and the pace was good. The narrator did a pretty good job, but some of her attempts at men's voices were distracting and didn't seem to match the mood of the book at the time. All in all, though, I'd pick up another of Ms Crusie's books for a break in my more laborious reading.
