Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen.
I don't want to love this book but I do. It is beautifully written and narrated but the story went nowhere....You can only listen to descriptive words for so long. The ghost story, the murder mystery and the love story were minor elements, I need much more. This is a Book 1 and I suppose there is a Book 2...I have yet to find, where these mysteries will be further developed. Still searching.....
The main character reminded me of a southern version of the character Hyacinth Bucket from the show "keeping up appearances" without the irony.
A better plot, a main character one would want to identify with; a reader that didn't slip into painfully sounding vocal cliches would have brought this up to a 4 or 5 star experience.
Several of the main characters could have been developed in a way that drove the story. The writing is lazy, so many lost opportunities.
Don't waste your credits on this one. Audible rec'd this for halloween. I was hoping for a good spooky story. This was lame.
The narrator did a great job with both the male and female lines.
The end, it left me wanting more.
Great narrator, held my attention, her voice did not detract from the story.
Yes, but way to long for that, but I listened every chance I could.
Love that the story takes place in the south. Narrator did an excellent job. I highly recommend.
Happiness is a good book!
You never look at grave yards the same ever again. This story makes you believe that it's possible that maybe there are people who talk to the dead. It would be nice to say a few things to a few of my deceased lol. I loved the reader, the story was great and the dead were awesome. While I suppose it's not meant to be scary exactly it does make you look over your shoulder a bit. House sounds, darkness & coincidences suddenly begin to mean a little bit more. Very good book.
Totally addicted! It's possible I might need Audible rehab.
The narration was lovely! The story premise was good but a little slow paced for me. I look forward to the next book in hopes that it picks up a bit.
Avid Reader when not teaching, being a Mommy, or gamer. Loves just about anything!
Creepy Southern Ghosts.
The way the author brought the beauty of the city to life along with the ghosts.
Driving Miss Daisy this is not.
Ms. Hvam did a wonderful job with the accents and narration!
I used to be an avid reader of Romance novels. I usually preferred the Harlequin & Silhouette series''. I would read several books a day over the summer and several a week during school months. I took a long break as an adult but have gotten back to it this year and am very much enjoying my Audible experience. So far I still really like general Romance but have found a real unexpected joy in Supernatural & Paranormal Romances.
This book started off pretty slow but I finally got into it about half way through. The premise is cool and I really enjoy the taste of the south that's brought to light very well throughout the story. The narration is pretty good.
The part that I found frustrating was that by the time I got to the end of the book and she was putting all the pieces together to figure out 'who-dun-it', I couldn't remember who the people she was talking about were. Some of the most important people in the end of the story were only mentioned a few times here and there and remained mostly on the periphery of the rest of the book.
I also wasn't terribly impressed with the romance part of this book. The male main character seems like he could be a good fit for the female, but I didn't 'feel' much chemistry between them.
Enjoyed this book, both author and narrator, immensely! Can't wait to read the next one.
Flow of the story with great narrating skills.
No, but it was thrilling throughout.
The Audio edition was amazing.
The Restorer can't be compared to any other book. It was really a great read.
Girl, Khristine Hvam has the accents going on in this book. I'm from the south and I really love it. You go Khristine!
The father and daughter relationship sharing this ability of seeing ghost and knowing the others are there. They have a bond but make their own decisions. Both father and daughter share a strangeness. Guess they would with their power to see ghost.
Book was so good I got the other two.
