    Nancy Drew's keen mind is tested when she searches for a missing will.

    "As good as I remember her to be"
    Overall

    When I was about 9 years old I fell in love with Nancy Drew. We share the same name. She is my first mystery heroine and the Secret of the Old Clock was the first of thousands of mystery novels I have read over the years. Ms. Linney does a wonderful performance of bringing Nancy to life. Nancy drives her little sports car and goes to luncheon with her friends. She is brave and cleaver and a good helpful person.

    Jordan Kelly needs a new job and a new place to live. She's back in Harrison Falls, New York, living with her not so law-abiding uncles, in debt thanks to a credit card-stealing ex and pending grad school loans.

    Enter the perfect job, a research position that includes room and board, which will allow her to spend her days hunting down rare mysteries for an avid book collector. There's just one problem: her employer, Vera Van Alst - the most hated citizen of Harrison Falls.

    This main character is this novel is not the brightest girl in literature. I found her character boring and irritating. The best concept are her Uncles - but they only appear in side pieces and are never fully developed. I was very disappointed in the book.

    I discovered this series as a Kindle download and while it is not a great piece of literature - I loved the characters and the setting. I guess I am a sucker for the old "your life is in the toilet when you suddenly find out you are the son of the #1 mystery writer in the USA and you have inherited her estate and are now fabulously wealthy and have wonderful friends and a good murder to solve" plot. But, seriously if you need a little cozy this is just plain old fashion fun. I do hope Audible will get the full series.

    Simla 1922, and the summer capital of the British Raj is fizzing with the energy of the Jazz Age. Simla is where detective Joe Sandilands is heading as the guest of Sir George Jardine, the Governor of Bengal. But when Joe’s travelling companion, a Russian opera singer, is shot dead at his side in the Governor’s car, he finds himself plunged into a murder investigation. Confronted by the mystery of an identical unsolved killing a year before, Joe realizes that Sir George’s hospitality comes at a high price.

    I am so delighted to find a new series that I am truly enjoying. I do recommend reading The Last Kashmiri Rose before listening to Ragtime in Simla. I am finding that reading the books in order as the history of British India are key to the integral plots and characters. Joe Sandilands is a wonderful and admirable hero and the images and culture of India are outstanding. If you enjoy a historical based mystery with a touch of romance I highly recommend getting to know Joe Sandilands. The narrator is excellent.

    I stopped listening after only about 10 minutes into the book. I have been a member of audible for many years and I have had books that disappointed me, but this book is terrible. The writing is from high school and the performance is from a first year acting class. Though a first year acting class may have been better. In short do not waste your time, your money or a credit.

    There isn't much fun in the sun when a billionaire real estate tycoon is found murdered on the Tilt-a-Whirl at a seedy seaside amusement park in the otherwise quiet summer tourist town of Sea Haven. John Ceepak, a former MP just back from Iraq, has just joined the Sea Haven police department. The job offer came from an old Army buddy who hoped to give Ceepak at least a summer's worth of rest and relaxation to help him forget the horrors of war. Instead, Ceepak will head up the murder investigation.

    I purchased Tilt A Whirl over two years ago and I had not listened to it until last night. What a wonderful surprise. I started about 9pm and I was awake till the end. Ceepak is a wonderful hero - a true honest good-guy. Tilt A Whirl had wonderful moments of humor and amazing characters, but also a serious heart-breaking family tragedy. The narrator is excellent and I agree with others - do not let him go! I will be picking up other titles in this series.

    Sarah Piper’s lonely, threadbare existence changes when her temporary-work agency sends her to assist a ghost hunter. Alistair Gellis - rich, handsome, scarred by World War I, and obsessed with ghosts - has been summoned to investigate the spirit of 19-year-old maid Maddy Clare, who haunts the barn where she committed suicide. Since Maddy hated men in life, it is Sarah’s task to confront her in death. Soon Sarah is caught up in a desperate struggle, for Maddy’s ghost is real, she is angry, and she has powers that defy all reason.

    I was alone in a strange town in a hotel room when I started to listen to the tale of the haunting of Maddy Clare read by Pamela Garelick and I found myself falling into a mesmerizing and complex ghost story, The tale is an old one of a ghost seeking justice - but Pamela Garelick's performance brought out the heart stopping terror of the ghost of Maddy Clare. Maddy is not a kind and friendly ghost, she is complex and full of anger and demands. So, turn down the lights, light the fire and enjoy a traditional haunting Gothic ghost story.

    In her delightful and moving memoir, Sissy Spacek writes about her idyllic, barefoot childhood in a small East Texas town, with the clarity and wisdom that comes from never losing sight of her roots. Descended from industrious Czech immigrants and threadbare southern gentility, she grew up a tomboy, tagging along with two older brothers and absorbing grace and grit from her remarkable parents, who taught her that she could do anything.

    This is a wonderful joyous celebration from an outstanding actor. I have always enjoyed Ms. Spacek and I truly enjoyed listening and learning about her life's journey. The stories of her early childhood in Texas are delightful and heartwarming. Her Hollywood tales provide insight and a laugh as she discovers her acting instrument and the love of her life. May we all be blessed with an extraordinary ordinary life.

    The recovery of the magnificent gem in Lord Attenbury's dazzling heirloom launched a shell-shocked young aristocrat on his career as a detective in 1921. Thirty years later, a happily married Lord Peter has just shared the secrets of that mystery with his wife, the detective novelist Harriet Vane. Suddenly, the new Lord Attenbury—grandson of Lord Peter’s first client—seeks his help to prove who owns the emeralds.

    What joy one more Lord Peter story. If I could have one author added to audible it would be Dorothy Sayers. The Lord Peter novels were the first recorded books I checked out of the library and I was hooked. Please bring Dorothy Sayers and Lord Peter titles to Audible.

    On a hillside near the cozy Irish village of Glennkill, the members of the flock gather around their shepherd, George, whose body lies pinned to the ground with a spade. George has cared for the sheep, reading them a plethora of books every night. The daily exposure to literature has made them far savvier about the workings of the human mind than your average sheep. Led by Miss Maple, the smartest sheep in Glennkill (and possibly the world), they set out to find George's killer.

    Well, what can one say about a mystery about a flock of sheep who wake one day to find their good shepherd dead. The sheep try to solve the mystery of who killed George and find a new shepherd who will continue to read romance novels to them. There were images in this very silly tale that had me laughing out loud. May not be great classic literature, but it is truly a unique story that makes a fun listen.
