At the very top! I was very into the story found it hard to stop listening .
The little girl . She was very sweet when she would show up
Yea he did very well
Refreshing, intriguing and romantic.
What I enjoyed most about the storyline was that you could virtually replace the two main characters with male and female; two females; or interracial couple. The point being that LOVE was the ultimate connection and the growth of their love for one another AND the love story was told in unison with a murder mystery. A nice blend the story and characters.
Matthew's voice was a little to mature/older gentlemen sounding for the character.
Don't worrry no spoilers here...I did both -CRY @ the funeral...how touching with the flag and LAUGH the sister and sister-in-law were a hoot!
If you shy away from lovemaking m/m you may not enjoy this book but if you are open to LOVE for all genders, and a mystery to boot -- I BELIEVE you will enjoy listening to this story.
A really good audibook. Excellent book to start the month with!
This book starts of with Detective Matthew Bennett getting a missing child call. After the police has a taken a look around, Matt hears a little girl. He follows her voice and eventually her to discover her body and is quickly placed on administrative leave by his superiors. They also order him to see the department psychologist because they think he is losing it.
See, 15 months ago, Matt lost his work partner of 3 years, who also was his romantic partner. He never took time off to properly grief, so Matt's vision has to be the grief he is feeling. Only, Matt's sister in law and best friend Sheila thinks supernatural things occur and that he shouldn't dismiss what happened to him as crazy business. She takes him to see renowned medium Kiernan Fitzpatrick and the two of them set off to solve the mystery of why the dead girl Abby chose to appear to Matt AND who hurt this little girl. It was definitely off the record as Matt was on leave and the medium is not part of the police department.
The subject was a sad murder, but solving it became a form of catharsis for both Matt and Kiernan. Damage from the past has kept them from truly connecting with others, but their sisters (Shiela and Aidan) were the pillars that kept the guys erect.
I love the way the story was written. even though it wasn't a love story, there was revelation and justice and love in this story. It kept me interested from page one until the end and I felt very satisfied at the conclusion. I would love a sequel to this one!
People who believe in mediums.
Another M/M romance
Never heard other performances. He was one of the better narrators I've heard.
Other than the narration, no redeeming qualities.
This book was an apologist novel for psychics who like to meddle in police business. I would have been fine with a fantasy novel, but this was a little too close to reality. The protagonists went out of their way to do the things that mediums are criticized for. The pushing themselves on a bereaved family, the vague answers, all the manipulations a psychic likes to do. There was no police work and if the bad guy hadn't confessed in front of reliable witnesses, then he would have walked. Stupid book.
The audio certainly enhanced a great story. I bought whispersync and I found I preferred to listen to Jack LeFleur. He brought out the characters so well. It's typical of this genre that narrators are either self-conscious or try too hard. But Jack made everything sound natural.
There are great moments throughout but the best remains in the beginning when Matt first meets Abby and she sadly shows him where to find her.
This book is perfectly balanced between it's supernatural plot and it's romantic plot. Both are given full attention without sacrificing the other. Diana Copland delivered a book I couldn't put down, and I will be looking for more.
A different story, a new reader, it was terrible.
This started off in the very early stages just okay, I was looking forward to a ghost story. The reader was irritating from the start, but I'm willing to put up with that if the story good. Well, it progressed into an unbelievable gay sex/love story (and not a very good one at that!), leaving the ghost part as secondary and even that was very predictable. I think if I had this in book form I could have at least skipped the cringe worthy sex/love scenes more easily than on my mp3 player, but there again I probably would have just binned the book a third of the way in.
All of them
Waste of a credit
The story was for the most part very well written and developed.
My favorite character in this story was Matt. He felt very much like a regular guy to me, very personable and relateable.
I think he is one of the best Narrators that I have heard! He was very good! He gave the characters the perfect voices.
Some parts of the book made me laugh, Kiernen was funny.
This was a very good read/listen. I thoroughly enjoyed the progression of the story and relationship between the main characters. My only gripe with this story is how Abby's realization and acceptance of what happened to her came too easily and it just seemed to wrap up the story to make it a happy ending. I would love to get a sequel to this, to see the progression of Matt and Kiernen's relationship.
I loved it, from start to finish.
Awesome story line.
A very good combination of paranormal mystery with a little romance.
Mostly using audiobooks when my concentration is so bad that I can't read text. Or sometimes when I feel the need to practise my [listening] english even more. I'm not very picky when it comes to stories, so can listen to practically anything – and have a knack to find SOMETHING in each story that I like. *smile*
I enjoyed this book pretty much all the way through. The plot was fun and interesting to follow – not too easy to figure out who the bad guy was and their motive and so on, and the focus was just as much about the mystery as about the feelings developing between Matt and Kier without having to read a sex scene every other chapter (I don't mind sex in my stories too much as long as it's well written but if it's a lot of it it just gets repetitive and boring in my opinion so for me this book was good in this department).
The feelings grew at a steady and good pace between these two interesting characters that were both very likeable and felt very real-like to me. Both have their struggles and baggage from earlier relationships but neither lets the other one close off completely but instead makes them talk things out. Communication. I also loved their banter haha.
Side characters were also great. The ghost-girl, Kier's sister and Matt's sister in law were all characters I enoyed very much an brought good balance to the story too. I was also very fond of Matt's friend from the office.
The narrator did a great job with this audiobook! I really liked his voice and the way he was reading it. He had a good pace and was good at giving the characters their voices.
It's a book I can recommend!
