I prefer books to be alternatingly silly, depressing and weird, much like myself! Favorite authors: Douglas Coupland, Meg Cabot, Neil Gaiman
Now, maybe I'm a wuss, but since we're talking about romance novels here, I can't imagine that I'm the only one who was apprehensive about this book because of the ghost factor. I listen to books mostly to keep me calm while driving and to fall asleep at night and, as much as I enjoyed the story, this book did not fit the bill.
My suspension of disbelief is strong, so the ghosts in here were a little too upsetting. I had to listen to something else before bed and only listen to this book on my morning drive. The ghosts weren't so bad that I couldn't listen at all, but just bad enough to keep the book from being relaxing like I wanted. The good news though is that the story was interesting enough that I found it frustrating that I couldn't listen to it more often.
So if you're sensitive to horror elements like I am, just thought I'd put my two cents in before you have a bad night (like I did). It's still worth the listen if you're a Crusie fan, just don't start off listening at bedtime!
Funny, mysterious, romantic
I loved the scene where all the players arrive, knocking on the front door one by one while a psychic is trying to hold a seance.
It was fairly easy to see a lot of the stuff coming, but it sometimes made it better when it happened.
I would have gotten rid of about 100
She had a great way of sounding unimpressed when the character needed to...
This was the worst. I hate to sound negative, but what a chore getting through this book! If I wasn't so cheap, I would have stopped listening! ;) Alice said, Carter said, Alice said, Carter said!!!! Ugh - the worst book - cliche storyline and so poorly written - am not even sure if there was an editor on board with this book. Don't waste your money, please.
A better story -- interesting at first, but then it devolved into pap.
Not a Jennifer Crusie book, that is for certain
Okay, kids voices a bit over done
Just about all of them, especially the ghosts
Don't waste a credit....this will be on the "extreme sale" list in the future.
Very entertaining. Was hesitant to order based on the description. Was pleasantly surprised when I finally began to listen to this book. It was enjoyable and the reader did a great job. The story and characters kept my attention and I looked forward to my drive to and from work so I could listen more. I always hesitate with ghost books but this was very good.
Jennifer Crusie is her usual entertaining self, and Angela Dawe is great as a narrator. She brought me completely into the story, and I didn't break out of it once due to bad reading. I'll be looking out for her again.
It's an awesome book. I'd buy it again.
Love this book it had a little of every thing love suspense, ghosts and happiness.... my only regret it ended :)
I am a truck driver and I drove from TX to FL to due this listening to this book. I enjoyed every minute of it.
Thank you Jennifer and Angela you all did an excellent job cant wait to buy more of your books.
